    .17 Remington Fireball

    One of my friends wants to build one off a Tikka and another friend bought a AR upper but it doesn't work right. He found out the headspace wasn't correct and almost blew my other friends face off, same friend I mentioned wanting to build off of Tikka. Out of battery explosion.

    .17 Remington Fireball

    Factory ammo was nice but its a surprisingly loud cartridge which kinda correlates to sight picture upset and the barrel gets hot quick. Kinda reminded me of a smaller 20 cal 220 Swift. When shooting PD's I had to stop and let the barrel cool. I should have brought a 2nd gun but hadn't even...

    Rifle Scopes Safe to spend money on an LPVO or is something amazing about to drop?

    In the price range of the Helos G2's I have now including a 6-24, the Midas TAC's I've owned, my recent ETR 15-60x56, and my two Cronus G2 4.5-29's, I honestly cannot complain. That ETR has really good IQ which is visibly improved over the ETR 4.5-30 I also had. Probably a combo of being SFP but...

    .17 Remington Fireball

    Old thread but hey I'm not busy being retired and all. Years ago I bought a 17K Hornet, just not the power I was looking for, tried 17 Rem twice, then 22 Hornet, 218 Bee AI, 222 Rem, 223, 22-250, 220 Swift, the 6mm's, 2nd to last I tried was 204R. Then arrived at 5mmFBI. 20 Vartarg, or the AI...

    Rifle Scopes "Best" LPVO

    I'm very happy with my DFP March shorty 1-10. It was an easy choice for me because I wanted the adjustable parallax and don't want to supplement with a RD. I live in a small house so the gun stays on 1x 99% of the time. Might put it on a air rifle or rimfire at some point so I wanted that side...

    He might be done with Athlon but only he knows. Hard to find a perfect scope.

    Rifle Scopes Safe to spend money on an LPVO or is something amazing about to drop?

    I literally don't know any more than this, but the rumor is that Athlon is bringing out a Japanese Cronus grade MPVO in 2024. Whatever it is I'm getting one!!! I think the success of the Helos G2 DMR 2-12x42 MPVO proves there's a demand for a similar product but of even higher quality.

    Maggie’s Funny & awesome pics, vids and memes thread (work safe, no nudity)

    I've actually done this before except not near the fun he had. Started chainsawing at the bottom plate on one side, went up the wall, over the roof, down the opposite wall, and stopped on the bottom plate over there. The backhoe came by the next day and pried the thrashed old part away from the...

    6 ARC - Anyone Regret It? Also considering 22 ARC

    AA2520 was absolutely the worst powder I had tried in my 6mmART40 over a decade ago. Why?? its because the temp sensitivity is enormous and so much so when winter came I thought my scope had broke. On top of that if you work up a warm load in the winter it'll likely be over pressure in the...

    PRS oriented stock design

    I didn't read all of your thread but it looks well thought out! One aspect I like a lot about my Bolthorn chassis is adjustable length of the grip to the trigger because of my short fingers. It's the only one I found that did this back when I bought it. Also the grip that comes with this...

    22 or 6 gt for hunting/ prs

    There's more "risk" of heavy 22 cal bullets blowing up in fast twist barrels like if using 6.5-7 twist. Much less risk in 6mm at 7.5-8 twist. If you go for 22 I suggest a .219 bore. Granted I've been very unlucky.. As I've been down that road twice now in 20 caliber fast twist with 55 grainers...

    A friend just gave me this as a gift yesterday. Kind of a late birthday and early Christmas. It's a cheapy stabby that is surprisingly sharp. I'll put it on the belt for EMTB rides in the FS.

    7 PRC vs XXX... What am I missing?

    Also seeing the mark on the steel of your impact helps for the next shots correction. The bigger that spat is the easier it is to see. More than a decade ago I had a 7mmRM throated way out/180's, also compared it to my 30-375 Ruger wildcat/230's, also compared with my 375CT/350's, at ELR...
