What a great club... and they serve coffee - looking for new members? ? 400 yards is ideal... looks like a nice range - what grain bullet were you pushing?

Got the AX308 out for some Sunday morning steel shooting. The club put up some interesting smaller targets @400.

Always looking for new members, but you have to bring your own coffee...
The hung some 3 and 2 inch targets @400
That are fun to shoot.
I was shooting a .308 pushing a 178ELDM @2750 and an AX-6.5 Creedmoor 147 @2950....

Took the AT out today. Only shot it with the 6.5 creedmoor barrel. Sadly only has access to 100y today. But I was shooting some hand loads I had built for another gun I no longer have. And the AI really liked them. First 3 rounds to confirm zero then I shot a loaded shotgun round that was stuck in the cardboard. I couldn’t believe it when I found the head. Shot a few 5 round groups and did the dot drill. Every time I shoot this gun it makes me even happier that I purchased it.

    What sort of tape is on the pistol grip?

    cleaning my rifle, noticed these scratches on the bolt face, you can feel them with your finger nail. Anything I should be concerned about? Never fired any powerful hand loads, just mils to moderate ones, factory federal fgmm and prime 65cm.

    cant get my iPhone to focus that close, but if you zoom the picit should show up.

    Nay, you’re good. Nothing to be worried about. Keep an eye on them and make sure they don’t get larger.

    It may not be an issue where you live but here I would be concerned that to some that might fit the description of a suppressor :unsure:

    Hey all, I picked up a used AE MK III, and liking it a lot. However, it has a fixed stock and I'd like to convert it to a folder if possible. I'm not very familiar with how AI rifles and parts work, but it looks pretty modular based off the website and the stock itself.

    Where can I pick up a folder? It looks like I'll need just the hinge part and bolt it on to replace the fixed part, but I can't find what I'm looking for online. Are there any other parts I'd need to switch out?

    Still not seeing anything, am I misunderstanding how this chassis works? I haven't taken it apart yet but to my eye it looks like I can just drop in a hinge where currently there's a fixed portion, right above the thumbhole.

    All I'm seeing here is buying full side kits to replace what I already have, or pistol grip (I'd like to keep the thumbhole) kits.

    It might be possible, but it won't be as straightforward as if you had an AT. You will need to cut up the skins and machine the chassis. You will also not be able to buy just the hinge mechanism (at least not that I'm aware of). One option is to buy the folding buttstock section from someone that has done the AX buttstock upgrade, but again, you will need to do some hacking because the AE and AT interface is different.

    Finally got my Sage Green(best color followed closely by sand) AXMC in 300WM/ 6mm CM with the NF 5-25 ATACR mounted. Crappy pic but will add better ones soon.

    Trying to decide on weather to do an Arca Swiss dovetail to put on the bottom or change the whole handgaurd to the Victor Company one that basically turns the MC into an AXSR from what I can tell.

    If you are running either tell me your thoughts. Sawtooth or HRD would save a bit over the new rail. Planning to run a CKYE pod on it if it helps.

    Nice rifle. Sage Green is the only acceptable AI color ?

    As for the forend rail, you’ll be good either way. A bolt on rail and RRS randgaurd plate will combined be about half the price of the Victor Co rail. So if you’re looking to save a few bucks, that might be a better choice. Otherwise I think the Victor Co rail is pretty slick if you’re willing to spend the money on it.

    Haha, thanks brother! Almost forgot... Just ordered your thumbrest too from Anarchy Outdoors tonight.

    If I go under rail clamp on what's the best Arca Swiss to do?

    When I see that picture with the phrase “double trouble,” all I think of is Office Space. “What would you do with a million dollars?”
