    Targets for load development

    I know, I know, there's a million choices already. But I wasn't 100% happy with anything I've found yet. I had the time this morning, so I drew one up. I designed the target the way I want it, with the aiming point being the tippy top of the triangle. One inch line going up from the tip, half...

    Garbage groups

    I took my .308 out shooting today for just the second time. The first time out it put 5 rounds in an inch at 50 yards but then opened up at 100 yards to about 2 or 3 inches. I put a lot of the blame for this on me, the walking feet on my harris bipod and the shitty filling in the rear bag I...

    Bartlein vs. Proof Research pound for pound?

    Wife wants a light but accurate AR, so I will be building one shortly. The question is, should I get a Proof Research 16in barrel at 25.6oz (I believe) or have Craddock or CLE spin me up a 16in Bartlein that weighs about the same? In other words, which will be more accurate at around 25oz? Which...

    243 Win. Loads

    I am looking for some advice on loads for my new 243 Win. I would like to shoot 105s, maybe 115 if my 8 twist will stabilize that bullet. Figuring on probably shooting the 105 VLDs. Any reloading experience with this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    Tikka t3 vs savage 12fv

    I am in the process of buying a rifle for my significant other as she fell in love with my old rem700 sps tactical in .223. So I'm in a toss up between these two rifles. Both would be bought in .223 rem caliber. I have narrowed it down between the pros and cons. Also, both are within $20 in...

    How to get the best accuracy and LR capabilities from my POF 308

    I have a POF 20 inch 308 and I'm curious to see what are the upgrades that I can do to increase the long-range capabilities and accuracy of this gun. My thoughts are leaning towards changing the caliber to a 260. One thing I would also like to do is to reduce the weight of the gun by changing...

    Tuning my handloads

    I'm going to do some load development for my old Rem 700 BDL 22.250. I did a lot of testing, 212 groups in 24 different bullet/powder/primer configurations, back in 1983. At that time it agg'd .379" with StdDev of .101 (5 shot groups-100yds), that was with Nosler 50gr Match which are no longer...

    std barrel .243 accuracy

    I've been kicking around the idea of a rem700 243 for a truck gun / f class rifle. Is a heavy/varmint contour barrel necessary for great accuracy? Or can a person get a light barrel that holds moa and less? I was thinking of buying a youth sps so that it would have a 20" brl and upgrade the...

    AR-10 Accuracy

    For those with AR-10 (.308) experience, what kind of accuracy can be expected if using handloaded quality ammo (top end bullets, Lapua cases, etc.) at ranges from 100 to 600 yards, and maybe 800 yards. I would be using components such as a Geissele trigger and Krieger barrel. I always wanted a...
