    New Sierra 169gr SMK (.30)

    My Tikka T3x prefers 168 SMKs to 175s. I bet it would love these 169s. Too bad I don’t reload (no time, no space).

    Colt wins Danish Sniper Rifle Contract It's easy to see why the Danes picked the C20 over the HK 417. A DI gun, when set up right, will always pounce a piston gun in accuracy (less reciprocating mass). Colt Canada improved the C901 design, it uses cheaper Magpul mags (417 mags are expensive)...

    H&K G36 vs SIG/SAN Swiss Arms SG 550/551/etc

    I've shot both many years ago (dealer samples), and the Sig 550 series is going to be slightly more accurate than the base G36 because how the barrel is set up relative to the trunion/receiver. The G36 is a completely different animal and was meant to be a light weight assault rifle, not a DMR...

    Suppressor question

    What is the life expectancy, round count, of the TBAC 9" cans? I realize it is all Titanium. Surefire (met the big guys at the 2019 NRA Convention) told me point blank Ti is great, but you can get more life out of a traditional Inconel/steel can.

    Suppressor question

    Doesn’t have to be Surefire. I was debating about picking up a 7.62 TBAC for the sake of variety. I want somethingg flexible if I ever need one for 300 Win Mag or 300 PRC. I highly doubt I’ll shoot .338 Lapua any time in the next 20-30 years lol

    Suppressor question

    I own a Surefire Genesis 7.62, Surefire SOCOM 7.62 and I have an OSS 7.62 in jail right now. If I buy another bolt gun (6.5 Creedmoor), what would you buy? The Genesis is for my 7.62 Tikka, the SOCOM sits on my SCAR and the OSS is for a Polish AKM I will be building.

    SAKO S20 rail help

    I think they offer something just for the S20. May not be stateside yet. I would email Sako Finland; bypass the US Beretta CS (they never answer the darn phone). I was on the fence about buying a S20. This is one of the reasons why. It's a hunting gun and a < 600 yard gun if you don't need an...

    SAKO S20 rail help

    Call Sako. I think you have to buy one of their mounts.

    McMillan used to make one. I would call them first, but you’ll probably have to search Gunbroker and various for sale boards.

    Rifle Scopes Sphur mount on delta 5

    I would call Mile High Shooting. You could also email Spuhr directly, but MHS will help you on the phone. That is how I picked the Spuhr mount for my Tikka CTR T3x.

    KRG Whiskey 3 Chassis-Let's See Them

    So no rough movement when the bolt feeds the rounds? I had one of the first Manners PRS stocks with the AICS bottom and I had to send them my gun because it wouldn’t feed. Still was rough after they adjusted it. I am on the wait list for a Whiskey 3 in Sako Green, folding stock. I will give...

    Does this happen with Tikka CTR mags?

    Spring was still attached. The follower is just sliding out. Maybe follower issue or feed lip issue? I will call Beretta and see what they say. A mag exchange would be nice with such a low round count.

    4x gets the job done on a tactical type rifle < 200 yards in. Again, if you want 6x, that is fine, but the Steiner 1-4x is hard to beat. I will be buying another for an AK.

    For under $1000, the Steiner P4xi is hard to beat. It has a daylight bright reticle, a bullet drop compensating reticle, large and more than adequate eyebox on 1x. It is also water proof and has good illumination adjustments. I ran mine on a DD 16” mid length upper this summer at a Vickers...

    Does this happen with Tikka CTR mags?

    Agree. I need to take it apart and inspect it. It appears to be still attached to the spring though. I have diaper duty right now with the kids. I will try tonight if I get time.

    AI AT Bolt Stuck 6.5 CM

    Agree as I pointed out. The stresses are far different and requires finite element modeling to truly determine how well these cases handle the stress.

    Does this happen with Tikka CTR mags?

    I didn’t. It pulled out by itself when I was loading rounds. Specifically, when I pushed in the first round, the follower tilted up and out like you see above. I thought maybe it was me, but I think something is wrong with the feed lips or mag body. I can’t do the same with my other CTR mags.
