    Dusty cleaning media??

    I run walnut media, and I was wodering if there are any additives or solutions that can be added to reduce the dust?

    What's your 40 yard time?!

    I ran the 40 for the first time this last weekend, and did it in 5.7 seconds. I know that's no too fast, but for 35 y/o, 5'11" and 265 lbs, I was happy with it. I ran it in 5.1 seconds in high school at 190 lbs. I'm pretty motivated now to see if I can improve this time. I can run distance, but...

    Does anyone know the thread pitch on a Browning A-bolt with the BOSS-CR (conventional recoil) system? I'm wanting to take the CR off and get a muzzle protector or maybe install a brake. Browning tech support says "it's company policy to not release that information". They suck! Thanks in...
