    Fieldcraft Does a TMR reticle work with a MILDOT MASTER?

    I was using my TMR reticle scope to range a garage door of a house. Now I've laser-ranged that garage door and it's right at 723 yards. But when I use the TMR reticle AND my mildot master calculator, I get a range of about 800 yards. Now I've looked on the internet and it says that most...

    Will a 168g .338 bullet work in a 1:9.3 barrel?

    I found some .338 AP Solids that are 168g. I have read where too fast a twist can rip a bullet apart. In this case, with the majority of the bullet being a brass solid, I would imagine there is no jacket to rip apart. They are designed to shoot at 3600 FPS, but they have been testing them in...

    TAC 50- What other bipods work ?? Help

    Did some shooting with a 50 at the weekend. Love the rifle but the ergonomics of firing this gun are quite poor. The std bipod I feel is far to high off the dirt to shoot well prone and the gun is very top heavy and wants to rock and roll with the basic split pin holding the bipod. What...

    Suppressors 1st Gen Glcok 17 tips on grip work?

    I just got an awesome deal on a Glock 17. I put new sights on,3.5 disconnect,ext mag and slide release and coated the slide. I shot it today for the 1st time and I hate it. The pistol is difficult to hold due to the lack on finger groves. Granted I was using dept ammo plus P so it was hot loads...

    Do Weaver top mounts work on your RF tech rail?

    Hi The way I understand it Weaver style mounts are supposed to work on Pic rails. I've tried 4 Weaver top mounts on my CZ 452 and there is no way they are going to get tight on this rail. Their see-throughs will since they are split and will pull in tight. After looking at Weaver's catalog, it...

    Advanced Marksmanship Can't get my sitting position to work

    I have been shooting sitting with a sling. When i cross my ankles I can't get the elevation high enough to bring the gun on the target. I end up with NPA well below the target array. I have slid my legs like scissors to the point I am almost ankle on ankle and still can't get it. The back of...

    Anyone know if a Ciener kit or the Spike's Tactical version of this kit can be used in a gas piston .223 upper? I know the .22 is a pretty dirty round to fire. Does using one of these kits get the really nasty fouling coated into the gas tube of a direct inpingement AR? Does the Spike's...

    trigger work on/541X

    I've been shooting a new Remington 541X, the trigger pull must be around 7-8 lbs. There is no adjustment, I've read that stoning the trigger yields very little results. Anyone have a solution to get the trigger pull closer to 2-3 lbs. I think Remington will install a new adjustable trigger...
