    If a 308 does not shoot well using 41 of 4895 and a 168 Sierra, there is something wrong with
    the rifle. Can I assume the stock is properly bedded? GD

    Look up the chamber specs and you will see there is really not enough difference to matter. GD

  • Posted in thread: How hard is it to find .30-40 Krag ammo? on 02-16-2015 at 06:08 PM
    Of course you are really thinking of an 1895 Wichester or the 1885 single shot; not the 1892.
    The 30/40 is a favorite of mine and I have a few of them. I pick up brass or ammo whenever I
    see it and ha...

    A lot of people forget (if they ever knew) that the 338 Lapua was originally introduced, not as
    a long range sniper round, but as a big game hunting cartridge. The first rifle I handled was a
    Sako spo...

    With such a generous budget, you can build whatever you want. Contact a gunmaker who builds the
    type of rifle which interests you and see what you can come up with. There are a number of
    builders who ...

    If I was after an accurate rifle and wanted tobuild close to the "tactical" type, I would use a
    Remington or better yet, a Remington clone from one of the good custom shops (Stiller, Defiance
    etc.) I ...

    Look, the reality is that either action will work quite well to build a decent 1000 yd capable
    rifle and for a lot less money than is being mentioned here. I have good long range rifles
    built on Remin...

    A couple of points: The Model 70 will close on a single loaded cartridge just fine. An
    unaltered Model 98 Mauser will not without pressing on the rear portion of the extractor to
    help it get over the ...

    There are a lot of pros and cons to both actions. In some cases the same feature may be
    considered to be both pro and con. I'll attempt to cover most of them. I will reference the
    true pre-64 Model 70...
