    What are the benefits of meplat trimming and closing?

    Consistency. Take a look at a box of 175SMKs and look at the tips of the bullets and you'll see how much variation there is. Trimming and pointing helps consistency from bullet to bullet.

    Anyone ever sent their GemPro250 in on warranty?

    I got an email from the 20-day old email address last night and a lady named Aleesha wrote that they are expecting a shipment next week. So, now we have it narrowed down to one week to a month.

    Anyone ever sent their GemPro250 in on warranty?

    I did call them today. Got to leave a voice mail with my info. The saga continues..... ETA: I just got a call from JD from MyWeigh. He confirmed that they are backordered. It would be about a month and that they received my return for warranty. He was nice on the phone and was pleasant to talk to.

    I cannot get the rifle to...

    Recoil straight back. I have been up one side and down the other of this site and found numerous threads and links to youtube videos about how to get the rifle to settle back on the target. I have tried different shoulder positions, aligning different ways, different hand holds, and different...

    Anyone ever sent their GemPro250 in on warranty?

    As an update, I have moved on to the next step in the process. It has been over 20 days, so, following their website, emailed the appropriate address with the information for them to trace my return. I will report back if/when I hear anything and what the next step is, if any. If I don't get any...

    308 Rapid fire Test

    Hey All- I took my Savage 10FP out yesterday to try out some loads, but I wanted to do it differently. I wanted to do it kind of fast - what I might see in a tactical/steel style match scenario where you would fire multiple shots fairly quickly. Basically, I fired 4 fouling/sighting rounds...

    Changing Cases

    Hello- I searched for a good while and may have missed this, but I have a question about changing cases for reloads. Lets say I am using a certain case with a certain reload and after their life has ended I want to get new cases. Now, I know it is recommended to rework the load with the new...

    Anyone ever sent their GemPro250 in on warranty?

    I read the website multiple times and did everything they said. One mistake I made is that I sent the whole package back, accessories and everything, which they say not to in a footnote. Anyway, the site sayd if its been 20-21 days, give them a call to trace it. I am going to call Monday and see...

    Anyone ever sent their GemPro250 in on warranty?

    To revive the thread a bit, I sent my 250 back for warranty three weeks ago. I have not gotten anything back, nor received replies to 2 contact email submissions. Worked for a year and then it wouldn't hold zero. Always used dry powder and never had any liquids around it during use. I am going...

    Trim-it upgrade

    I just trimmed 600 pieces of 223 and I used a pair of these: Super Gription® Thermal Latex Coated Gloves - XL S-19884X - Uline To help with grip. Make sure you have a fast rotation as well. My drill is 2000rpm and it was just fine. Of course I also have wrists like a baseball bat and hands the...

    Trim-it upgrade

    Would you be so kind as to measure the diameter of your cutter where it goes into the body, just to see if there is a chance? Mine is .3715" for both the 308 and 223 trimmers where they insert into the body.

    Trim-it upgrade

    Looks like the WFT from Little Crow with a micrometer adjustment. The 3-way cutter is awesome. Would like to know if they sell it separately and if it will fit my WFT bodies.

    I have always heard mil/mil for tac shooting and moa/moa for benchrest shooting.

    Don't think so, but she may be getting a little tickle from the magazine.

    Rifle Scopes Vortex PST 6-24 FFP MRAD vs Bushnell G2DMR 3.5-21

    So, what you're saying is that you looked at it and smelled it and said it isn't worth a damn. Have you looked through a Vortex PST and/or used one in the field? Just remember, coal looks like shit and smells like shit, but produces diamonds under pressure.

    Is this normal for a match bullet?

    I would say no real effect at short ranges, say less than 400-500yds. What about at 1000+ yds? Probably very noticeable with benchrest and marginally noticeable for ringing steel. Without good measurements and a nice flow modeling analysis, we're all just pissing in the wind. I maintain it could...

    Is this normal for a match bullet?

    Not sure if you are serious. Vortex air coming off the tail can certainly swirl in that region and cause unwanted movement.
