    Bartlein Barrels Update

    LH powder drop

    My old Pacific powder thrower had the capability of left or right hand lever handle but apparently at some point Hornady bought the rights to the Pacific and eliminated that feature when they brought out the "Lock & Load" series of throwers.

    To those who say lower cost guns aren't "accurate"..

    I know that I saw "Savage" and ceased giving a shit. I own 3 Savages now, a 12 LRP - Not threaded muzzle, a Model 11 as a hunting rifle for my daughters - Not threaded muzzle and a Savage 99 not threaded muzzle. I'd say that's 100 % of the ones I own and I wouldn't buy another Savage unless I...

    Don't be afraid to trim off the overhang past the end of the forward ring on the action. I have trimmed off a couple for scope clearance in the past, no problems afterwards. Hacksaw and a file / dremel / belt sander / scotchbrite deburring wheel and a little flat black paint will make it all...

    We're all built different, if that stock fits you and the optic, you're doing better than a lot of us. I need an adjustable cheek riser or build up the stock to get a consistent eye placement behind the scope. I bought a crossbow with a scope last year, and I'll have to modify the stock to...

    Looks Good with an optic on it. Your next purchase should probably be one of these: https://triadtactical.com/triad-stock-pack/ Getting a good, consistent cheek weld with your eye behind the optic will be your next task.

    Gunsmithing Pacific Tool & Gauge SUCKS!!!

    I read that too, and was thinking 44 TPI vs 22 TPI is a pretty significant / visible difference. Use a thread pitch gauge for final verification as to what is actually what before making chips.

    What do you wish someone told you when you first started in precision shooting?

    A good Scope will find a rifle... Don't be afraid to buy the best optic you can afford, it will find a home. Buy the optic with the reticle that works best for your eye and your brain.

    Suppressors Crooked Class 3 Dealers -- Suggestions?

    If the Form 4 hadn't been filed, you're only out the money, you're not out the wait time. If you have the scratch, go to a different FFL and start the process on a new can.
