    Dogtown 55gr HP: any experience with these?

    Just got a few 55gr HP "Dogtown" bullets from Midway. My intent was to make a cheap .223 plinking round for the AR. Questions to people with experience with loading these bullets for .223: 1. I'm concerned mostly about COAL. These are really short bullets, and anything longer than 2.200"...

    Rifle Scopes Exit pupil question

    I have recently become interested in predator hunting. After meeting with local hunters, I found out they mostly hunt coyote at short range (about 50 yds), and in the dark using a spotlight. These hunters use scopes with 50 mm objectives, set at a magnification of 3x or lower. The rationale is...

    Gunsmithing M700 squirming bolt

    When I dryfire my 700 on an empty chamber, the bolt moves forward about 0.020". It seems like the sear and firing pin mechanism pull the bolt rearward. The large 0.020 (measured with feeler gauges) concerns me. When I put a dummy round in the chamber and dryfire, the bolt twists slightly...

    Gunsmithing Barrel crowning question

    So my friend was complaining about his beat up old Argentine 1911 shooting a foot high and left at 25 yds, something that started when he inherited an old junky barrel from another shooter. When he showed me the pistol, I noticed a fair amount of damage around the crown, and presumed this was...

    Rifle Scopes Butler Creek flip up size for a Leupy?

    I searched but didn't find so, What would be the appropriate Butler Creek flip up size for Leupold 4.5-14x40AO? The objective OD on this scope is 2.0" and the eye OD is 1.6". I think #14 eye (1.605") will work for the eye, but I'm not sure about the objective: #31 is listed as 1.998" #33 is...
