    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...

    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 su...

  • Posted in thread: what guns are you looking forward to buying this year? on 01-10-2014 at 08:09 PM
    I hope to get a CMP garand before they run out :eek: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 ne...

    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 r...

  • Posted in thread: What did you do to your bolt action rifle today? on 11-23-2013 at 02:16 AM
    Yesterday marked the arrival of the last package I was in need of to complete my latest
    tinkering: a loaner rifle for unarmed huntin' buddies or new shooters. (For the longest time my
    loaner rifle has...

    I must say, that's the first time I have ever heard or read that.Carry on.I guess "meter" is
    probably the wrong word. I use Hornady's scale and electronic powder dispenser and its a bit
    finicky to say...

  • Posted in thread: Need help with .223 Recipe on 10-30-2013 at 02:49 AM
    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 ...

  • Posted in thread: Need help with .223 Recipe on 10-29-2013 at 08:04 PM
    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 r...
