    At the risk of suffering the slings and arrows... Not a single tactical rifle smith in SE Virginia? C2 shooters, where do you get your work done?

    Va. Gunsmith Needed!!

    Duffy, I'm in Va Beach as well and shoot at C2. How did this work out for you? I need a bolt knob installation. Would rather do it locally but can manage a Charlottesville trip. Best, CJ

    Re: Savage 93R17TR Accuracy expectations Been fishing in Montana and off the grid. The purpose of my original post was to find out if I got a POS. Sounds like its not too bad and there is a path for improving it. Thanks for the input. I'll check the action pins, Bed it, lighten the...

    Savage 93R17TR Accuracy expectations

    Re: Savage 93R17TR Accuracy expectations VTR, Will give the bore polish a try and definitely the ammo. I'm getting the the message that this rifle is capable of sub MOA in ZERO wind, with its favorite ammo, and a very stable shooting position. Otherwise 1.5 MOA isnt indictive of a lemon.

    Savage 93R17TR Accuracy expectations

    Re: Savage 93R17TR Accuracy expectations CZ, light to no wind as stated in the post. I shot from a bi-pod on a bench but was resting the butt on my left fist as I was bagless that day. Thanks for the dope on wind deflection of the 17. At a 100 yds and 2550 fps at the muzzle I wouldnt...

    Savage 93R17TR Accuracy expectations

    Re: Savage 93R17TR Accuracy expectations Well longgun you seem to be the only one with an opinion. Will continue to monitor and try some other ammo. I read that the 17HMR guns have a preference for one round or another. It doesn't seem to be V-Shock in my case. I would like to get some...

    Savage 93R17TR Accuracy expectations

    I have a Savage 93R17TR with a Zeis Conquest 3-9x40. I've been shooting Fed Premium 17gr V-shock. My expectations were that this rig used properly would shoot sub MOA which is my definition of "Tack Driver". Best 5 shot group at 100yds has been just wide of 1.5" with light to no wind. Gun...

    Savage 93R17 Mag Problems

    Re: Savage 93R17 Mag Problems I've had the same probelem and used the same solution successfully. There is a SS mag available that's made from a thicker gauge of steel. The feed lips dont spread and I've never had the "fountain" effect with it.

    looking for a good shooting .223/5.56 upper input

    Re: looking for a good shooting .223/5.56 upper input Take a look at High Caliber Sales. The MK 12 upper is very accurate and a piece of history. Kevin is the best. If I had bought this first I wouldn't have 3 ARs. Just got the Ops Inc suppressor. Its my favorite gun to shoot. CJ

    Determining Chamber (Ogive) Length

    Re: Determining Chamber (Ogive) Length When I referred to OAL I meant the length of the cartridge from the point where the bearing surface of the bullet just touches the lands to the case head. As opposed to COAL which is bullet tip to case head and relevent to mag length. I've seen OAL...

    Determining Chamber (Ogive) Length

    Re: Determining Chamber (Ogive) Length Waste, Going to give it a try once I move into my new digs and unpack. Does your post imply that there should be no change in measured OAL when using different bullets? Thats the position I started with but my measurements did not support that theory...

    MagnetoSpeed Chronograph Review

    Re: MagnetoSpeed Chronograph Review Was in the market for a Chrono and glad I saw this before I bought a traditional rig. I have a Surefire MB762SS brake on my GAP 300WSM. Its 4.2 inches long. It should mount aft of the brake just fine. Will post a pic when I get the chrono. The Surefire...

    Determining Chamber (Ogive) Length

    Re: Determining Chamber (Ojive) Length X I want to shoot Bergers and according to some data they published to get the best performance you have to find the "jump" sweet spot. There is a procedure for that but it requires that you know where to start and that is the OAL (front of bullet...

    Best Bore Guide

    Re: Best Bore Guide +1 for Lucas. I have 2. CS was excellent. I believe he makes them in "runs" so they arent always immediately available. I had to wait a few weeks for a 300 WSM guide.

    Determining Chamber (Ogive) Length

    Re: Determining Chamber (Ojive) Length X, its always good to know that a least one person thinks you're right. I was thinking about the fact that copper is a malleable metal but I think compressible might be a better description in this context. As stated above there is more going on in...
