    #1 of 20 McMillan Commemorative M40A1...Thoughts?

    Beautiful rifle but a bit pricey. Don't think the McMillan build is necessarily better than say a GAP build.

    PA is an OC State. Not a big fan ... prefer to 'walk softly and carry a big stick' myself. However, I always OC a sidearm when out hunting. A big issue I have with OC here in PA is that many times it's about confrontation with law officers to prove a point. Just can't get into that.

    Would you guys mind helping me look over this reloading supply list?

    I would stay away from the red media. Have heard that it is rouge and contains a grit, which is not good for your barrel. I use a uniforming tool and it makes seating the primer much easier. Just a thought ... you may want to start with 9mm first as it doesn't require case trimming and is...

    A question for all you manly men target shooting an M40

    Will look into shooting with the sling. I can tell you that I have not had this issue with any of my other rifles ... M1, M1A1, Savage PC10 in .308, etc. Each of these I can shoot all day. Also, my hand loads aren't particularly heavy ... 40.5gr of H4895 behind a 168gr Nosler HPBT.

    A question for all you manly men target shooting an M40

    Ok, first time out with my M40 commemorative yesterday to zero scope and see how well she shoots. 25 rounds later my right shoulder feels as if I've been kicked by a mule. Yes, had the butt in the pocket of my shoulder, leaned into the rifle and had a good cheek weld. So what's your all...

    Rifle Scopes Trouble zeroing MST-100

    Guys ... just double checked and that's it! What through me off is that the hex lock-down screws are different sizes between the elevation and windage turrets. Smartass is good!
