    My 260Rem chamber was cut using a custom reamer that has .080 freebore. Now is .080 the total length of the chamber to the lands starting from the neck? Or is there a bit more space after the freebore to the lands. Can I use this as a way to calculate total OAL on a loaded round using the...

    6.5mm 142smk vs 139 scenar

    Killing a 40x value

    So I just bought a pristine USMC marked 40x. I paid 1000 for it. I took it over to the gunsmith who refused to thread it cause it was so nice saying it would kill the value. Will it really hurt the value that bad? I have a suppressor I want to put on it for quiet practice.

    Range Report JBM Clculator Bug?

    So I assume its me so I'm hoping someone can/will explain this to me. When i plug in my crony data to JBM it won't out put the MOA drop in a way that makes sense or that I can correlate with my real DOPE data. It seems that it wants to calculate trajectory in reference to line of sight. Worse...
