    Potentially dumb question re: 6BR/Dasher BTO

    Let's say you have two barrels - one chambered in 6BR, the other in 6 Dasher. Both barrels have the same freebore. If you use the same bullet, would both cases have the same base to ogive measurement touching the lands?

    Physical Fitness WaterRower

    I was always an avid runner until tearing my right meniscus last May. Had surgery to remove the tear in August and doc said "it was worse than expected, I took over half." Asked if I could run again, he said yes once healed, I did PT, started building mileage then tore the damn thing again...

    Bushnell LRTS vs. ?

    I've got two 4.5-18x these scopes for their clarity, resolution, brightness, repeatability, feature set and overall value proposition. The only gripe I have is crosshair thickness of the G3i @ 18x...great for hunting or steel, but a bit of a liability shooting groups on paper...

    Sub-$500 riflescope recommendation, 2021 edition

    If a fella wanted to spend no more than $500 on an optic for a range rifle, how would you spend his money? Right now I'm looking squarely at the Bushnell Match Pro, but open to other suggestions.

    What's your reloading process?

    Looking to do a brief survey here....if you've got a pile of fired brass and want to reload them, what steps do you take in what order? I ask because despite getting pretty decent results, I'm wondering if I'm missing something. My steps are: Tumble clean Deprime/FL resize Wipe off sizing lube...

    Range Report Berger 6.5 Creedmoor factory ammo...switch from SRP to LRP brass?

    Bought 100rd of 135gr Classic Hunters last year, found they shoot well in my 18" 6.5 Creedmoor but decided to try some 130gr Hybrid ammo for a bit more velocity and more great brass for reloading. Received 200 rounds today just to find the new 130gr ammo has Lapua large rifle primer...

    Lapua Creedmoor SRP brass & CCI400s?

    I'm used to running 450s in my Dasher and 223/556 loads, but the current component situation has those in short supply. Anybody running 400s or similar non-magnum/BR primers in Lapooey SPR Creedmoor brass using "typical" loads?
