    Sidearms & Scatterguns Victorinox Multitool - Service experience

    So, after 12 or more years of pretty rough use I finally sent my Victorinox Multitool for repair. I've read about the lifetime warranty and hoped it would cover even my MT. But I knew I have destroyed 3 of the tools by using them for purposes expressly prohibited in the user's instructions -...

    Bullet weight variation

    Lapua ScenarL 175gr OTM Randomly selected bullets give me from 174.3 to 174.5, so within .2gr, but below the nominal weight. Is that normal?

    Bullet weight variation

    A newbie question: What would be considered an acceptable variation in weight for a high quality .308 175gr bullet? I have no idea... Thanks for all replies.

    Pics of where you shoot

    100m Match The 1000-m line is just below the horizon. I guess in Europe 1000-m ranges for civilians are not in abundance.

    New lapua Scenar-L .308 Win 175gr bullets - any experience?

    My longest shots at matches are right there at 1000m (1100 yards), in Europe for civilians it is an exception. I can't complain about the 155gr Scenars, up to 800m it's doing great. I heard the U.S. military chose 175gr bullets for their 7.62x51 NATO sniper ammo... is it true? What was the reason?

    New lapua Scenar-L .308 Win 175gr bullets - any experience?

    I shot the Scenars 155gr at app. 2800 fps, made by a guy I know and its great. Now I want to start reloading myself and want to know, if the 175gr would be better.

    New lapua Scenar-L .308 Win 175gr bullets - any experience?

    I am brand new to reloading, so have patience, please. I found this bullet on offer and had it recommended to me by some people, but decided to run it through here. I want a load for 1000m matches. I shoot Sako TRG 22 1:11 standard barrel. Is this bullet a good choice over a 155gr...

    Excellent! Another thing: it is on Norwegian TV and people come to watch and cheer, the atmosphere is wonderful.

    Pelican vs pelican storm: VOTE

    Storm... I always transport my rifle in it to the range. I don't abuse the case on purpose but on the other hand I don't pamper it. Still works fine.

    Brno Model 4 - looking for ideas

    Our Army recently went through its armories, found few Model 4's and decided to sell them. One of them went home with me. It's a '56 vintage in a nice condition, the stock is a little battered and the rifle has no iron sights but it will get a scope anyway. Here are pics of the little girl...

    precision rifles... show em

    It is simply a stripe made of carbon-fiber material and attaches to the barrel with Velcro. Quick Google session brought this: SS/Anti-mirage band :: STAR SHOOTER The one I have seen at the match looked a bit different, but the idea is the same.

    precision rifles... show em

    Is this picture from this Saturday? You did pretty well, considering the conditions. Nice stick, too. I have the SAKO mirage band and it is OK, but Lukas is right, the heat passes through. Guy next to me this Saturday had a carbon-fiber band, a bit complicated for transport, but works very well.

    My SSG 04

    Re: My SSG 04 The place is near Senica, guys from Wiena say it is easy and short drive. The best thing is it is not a normal shooting range. It is in a military area, so the setting is an open country. Here is a link to their web-page: Check the photos, you can see the...

    My SSG 04

    Re: My SSG 04 Nice rifle and the scope is fantastic. Are there any interesting competitions in Austria? I go to Slovakei, we shoot up to 1000 m. Some guys from Wiena usually show up... it would be good to have more people.

    Rifle Scopes USO SN3 Reticle/EREK Knob config.

    Re: USO SN3 Reticle/EREK Knob config. You definitely should have reticle and turrets with matching units. Whether MOA or MIL is up to you and I would take the units of measure, you are using, into consideration, e.g. if you are using imperial units, MOA probably makes more sense, OTOH if you...

    Kestrel products discussion thread / Horus Kestrel

    Re: Kestrel products discussion thread / Horus Kestrel Like I wrote, I already figured it out - the "drop-truing" feature disappeared when I entered the second MV value and it just surprised me. I quickly realized its two ways to achieve the same. But when "drop-truing" it took some time for...
