    F T/R Competition Does anyone, here, shoot at The Iocso Sportmans

    I haven't shot there yet. I mostly shoot at Midland and Cadillac. Soon Washtenaw as I'm moving to SE Mi. I know there are some great shooters that had over to Oscoda though.

    .204 Ruger: The battle between velocity and wind drift

    I have played around quite a bit with the light 26gr bullets, 32gr vmax, 40gr vmax, 40gr nosler. After loading both 32gr and 40gr bullets for a prairie dog blasting trip I must say I prefer the 40s. I used Reloader 10x for both bullet weights. I didn't do a max load with the 40gr bullets but I...

    Advanced Marksmanship The dangers of leaving your steel at the range.

    Pfffft. That little square he traced out is what I used for 2 miles with my 270 huntin rifle and the Leupold 3-9x it is wearing. Never forget that the Remington Core-Lokt is the deadliest mushroom in the woods.

    Hunting & Fishing Savage 99C lever action 7-08

    A friend of mine has one of these rifles which turns out to be pretty rare especially since it is a 7-08. He is looking to sell it and was curious to your guy's opinions. It is in relatively great shape. The only flaw I found was very slight rust on the action. Otherwise, it is perfect. Not bad...

    DIY target camera system

    I have a friend that is really into FPV rc stuff. It works awesome and is very affordable. I will talk with him and see what he thinks would be the best options in terms of cost,range, quality and post the parts list. I'm thinking under 200 +/- bucks could get you a pretty slick set up.

    Range Report 7.62x39 penetration of phone books

    They are these thick paper books used for ballistics testing that tend to accumulate on front porches yearly. I have no idea of other intended uses.

    Range Report What the best user friendly ballistics app you guys are using?

    I also like Strelok. I had great luck with the free version but recently purchased Strelok+ for my Samsung S4 for i think 5 bucks. It uses the weather station sensors built into the phone and inputs them into the ballistic solution. It has been very accurate and seems to have excellent user...

    Range Report OK now its time for 30 cal choices!!!

    My shooting buddy recently completed his 300 RUM. We shot it at 665 yards with the Berger 230 hybrid. Velocity was around 2900fps out of a 29inch barrel with a medium charge of Retumbo. 3000+ fps is probably attainable out of the 30 inch pipes. Accuracy was unbelievable, the first 3 groups on...

    Range Report M1 Garand at 1000 yards

    I don't think I could do that with my modern match rifle and the 50x scope it has. Nice shooting!!!

    Movie Theater Go See "Gravity" in 3D!

    Dogtown, Thanks for the suggestion and work. I went and saw Gravity the other day in Xtreme 3D. The visuals utterly blew my mind. Once seen toward the beggining actually gave me vertigo when it introduced the imaged of the earth with so much depth. The second major action scene almost sent be...

    Gunsmithing new build, 243 or 6.5 or 6mm ?

    I have a 6.5x55AI, I haven't got to shoot it yet but if it is anything like its little brother I am currently shooting , 260AI, it will be flat out awesome.

    Gunsmithing Swapping Savage Barrels Back and forth

    I swap savage barrels all the time. Get yourself some go gauges or a fired case that has been FL sized as your go. It is easy, but really make sure you get everything spaced and torqued correctly as nobody likes barrels that come unscrewed.

    Need advice for new/used economy car. *Update

    As the title says I am in the market for a new economy car. I have been driving a 98 Monte Carlo LS I got for 2800 bucks in 2005. Its been a great car but after painfully replacing the rusty ball joints/tie rods to only have the engine start ticking very badly upon a oil change, I just do not...

    Gunsmithing 6.5 X 55 Swede on a Savage .308 action?!?!??

    Sorry for the confusion. I have a slew of Savage actions and I had an extra long action at the time I got the 260AI so it went on that instead of a short. Now I somehow got another barrel in 6.5x55AI and it is going on that long action. However, the throat on my 260AI, makes for a pretty long...

    F T/R Competition Worth changing from leupold to sightron?

    You shouldn't have a problem finding a good used one. Between here and accurate they come about frequently. When I wanted one, I waited 3 days and a great deal on a NIB SIII 10-50 TD popped up.

    Gunsmithing 6.5 X 55 Swede on a Savage .308 action?!?!??

    I've got a fresh 6.5x55 AI that is going on my long action. I am taking off the 260AI that is currently on it because even with that I felt I was slightly limited when using the long bullets. I was loading those at 2.945. Don't handicap the swede with a short action!
