    338 Norma Action

    Looking to possibly build a 338 Norma. I have a couple of Bighorn TL3’s and love the action, however Bighorn Long Action is a no go for 338N. Thinking about going with a Impact 787R. Anyone build a Norma on that action.

    Redding S die

    Loading for 6.5x47 and when I resize the bushing leaves a slight bulge on the neck. Don’t feel any resistance with an unloaded case, when I chamber a loaded round it feels snug. Any reason to be concerned or anyway to correct?

    Rifle Scopes Highest Power

    What would you guys put on a .308 that most shots you have are no further than 500 yards? We shoot 1MOA targets out to 500 on a regular basis. I want to buy a new scope and don't want to be under powered, but also don't want a heavier than necessary scope

    Load for 18" OBR

    I just ordered a Larue OBR 18" .308 and was wondering what loads others are using. I shoot a 175 grain Match King in my bolt gun with 42.9 g of Varget. And out of my M1A I shoot 168 grain Nosler CC with 41.5g H4895. Probably shoot it out to 850 yards or so. Any suggestions?

    Barrel Length

    With all the hipe on 20" barrels for .308 is there any real velocity disserence between a 26" and a 20". I have read the most if not all powder is burned up within the first 18-20". And have heard there is really no lost velocity in a 20" and being shorter it os also stiffer. Seems like a...
