    RRS ball head for Innorel tripod

    Guys I have a couple of Innorel carbon tripods with Innorel ball heads which have been okay to shoot off. I would like to see if I can make the tripod a better platform to extend my range a bit, so thinking it might be worthwhile to try a Really Right Stuff ball head on the tripods. What do...

    Mausingfield 338 Lap action stock fit

    I cant find much written about the Mausingfield 338 Lapua action, other than a post by longrifles on their FB profile in 2016 stating it would only be made on a 1.4" or 1.5" diameter action. From what I can see, the current Mausingfield 338 Lap offering IS a standard Rem long action size? Can...

    Hunting & Fishing Ear pro for hunting

    Just wanted to hear from others who may already have an answer. My son does a lot of still hunting, along the lines of elk in heavy timber. Most shots are under 100 yards, but are taken quickly - ie a few seconds to ID an animal and shoot before the animal disappears into thick cover. So any ear...

    Anyone made a DIY biathlon or backpack sling for hunting?

    I need a sling to carry a 12-14lb hunting rifle, so thought a "biathlon" or "backpack" style sling might be the best option. I have access to an industrial sewing machine and materials such as canvas, nylon, webbing etc, so thought I would have a go at building one. Has anyone made something...

    I am looking for a rangefinder that will range animals to around 1000 yards. It will be used primarily to hunt with, but also for checking targets in PRS matches.

    PS Game changer - which one?

    I want to get a game changer bag for PRS matches - mainly off barricades. I think the pint size is probably the best option from what I have read. I am thinking probably the waxed canvas with sand fill, but would be interested in any other opinions before I pull the trigger on one. Also with...

    Question for anyone running 6BR based case in a Tikka T3

    I am currently running a 6XC on a Tikka T3 action for PRS matches. It shoots great, but I would like to go to a milder case when I rebarrel. At this stage I am thinking 6BRX, but I wonder if I will get the velocity I want with this action and a ~26" barrel. I was thinking I may be better off...

    Question - Tikka trigger sub 1 pound?

    I have an aftermarket spring in the trigger of a Tikka T3 which brings the pull down to ~ 1.5 pounds. I would really like to get down under a pound. Can anyone suggest a spring that will do this reliably and wont slam fire if adjusted under a pound?

    Gunsmithing Removing brake

    I just bought a Tikka CTR that is fitted with a Badger brake with a washer between the brake and the barrel shoulder (no pinch screw on the brake). I had assumed it would be a relatively simple process to unscrew the brake, but that bitch is on tight. I haven't encountered this particular...

    My son and I both shot a rifle with an IOR scope recently and we both liked the reticle a lot. I would really like something like this in a scope thats not an IOR.

    I was just reading the document on Tubb's website where they mention that the case head on the Norma brass is extra hard for improved case life. Can anyone comment on whether they have found this to be the case in actual practice over multiple firings? I have 200 Norma cases, but only have very...

    Hunting & Fishing Long shots on game - what are people resting off?

    I am interested to hear what people are using for shooting positions and rest equipment for long range hunting shots. It would also be interesting to know a ballpark range for shots people are making as I think it helps understand how effective the set-up is, and of course what constitutes "long...
