I've never seen moly-coated SMK's but if I ever do, I'll probably pass on them. A little research will let you know if they're gonna be your cup of tea. As for the 69 grain Sierra MatchKing, well if...

I have a newer (maybe 3 years old) 700 CDL with the same shallow hole. I purchased Leupold bases for it that came with an extra mounting screw that was shorter than the rest. Guess where I put that...

That's on my list for the year as well, but I didn't know there was a risk of them running out. Is that a legitimate fear?

I've been hanging onto a friend's RCBS chrony, you know the one that looks like a big ugly bullet. It's got some neat features and it packs away into itself which is nice, but most importantly I've...

I recently opened up a Boyd's Varmint Thumbhole to accept a bull barrel and I'll be damned for doing it. Their wood laminate is so strong I felt like I was trying to cut diamonds with a butter knife....

Dex, if I'm understanding your dilemma, and I may not be, I would suspect that your bronze bristled brush is the culprit. You are an overzealous cleaner, nothing wrong with that, but you've probably...

I guess "meter" is probably the wrong word. I use Hornady's scale and electronic powder dispenser and its a bit finicky to say the least. As you approach the target weight the trickler slows down to...

5 shot group at 100 yards. My personal standards for accuracy demand performance with high barrel temps. Though this group is nothing to write home about, I like this load because it makes holes like...

Funny you stumbled on that load combination. I did a lot of load development for my .223's and the most accurate load I found for my rifles was with those same 65 SGKs and IMR 4320. I remember cross...

Yes, for the most part it's that simple, unless your flash hider requires orientation (such as a flat spot that needs to be on the top or bottom, in which case you might want some shims). Go ahead...

Nitestalker, you're absolutely right about not needing a "bench" rifle for hunting. But I live in central Texas, so I don't truly have to hunt. More accurately its just killing. With hunting seasons...

RANGE REPORT:

Took the new .25-06 out to the 100 yard line this afternoon. We had a "cold front" blow through central Texas so temperature in the shade was a nice 92 degrees. I bought some factory...

That's a good lookin' shooter Anna. I like a good wooden stock, but I don't much care for these matte black synthetics that are so popular today.

.25-06 Recoil Info.

I've got a very limited amount of time to make a move on an unbelievably priced .25-06, the only problem is that I don't have any experience with this caliber. My question is if the .25-06 will be...

Well now that doesn't match your stainless Vaqueros at all! You're gonna need some new blued Vaqueros, then you'll need to send em off for color case hardening. Or some new case hardened Ubertis. But...

Hey Joe,

I recently bought a .223 bolt gun for the EXACT same reason (mines just turned 11 years old). If you need some extra justifications for the purchase, well there's a whole lot of varmint...
