Posted in thread: To true an action on 09-01-2014 at 02:15 PM
The time and effort spent truing a factory action will be well spent only if the action was
seriously deficient in the first place. In other words, if the action is visibly flawed,
remedial work will ...
Posted in thread: Target groups vs. Cold bore hunting on 09-01-2014 at 02:01 PM
If a rifle doesn't put the first shot and all subsequent shots to the same point of impact
(allowing for shot dispersion within accepted limits, of course), I will either find out why
and correct the ...

Because the Ruger 77 is not a common choice for the home gunsmith. Remingtons, Mausers, and
Savages are more commonly used by hobbyists. That said, I am quite certain that you could call
Pac-nor or Sh...

There has never been any definitive testing done which proves one case shape is any harder on
barrels than another. The truth is, the 6.5/284 and the 6.5-06 erode barrels at about the same
rate if all...

First, a little bit about definitions:A standard cartridge is a cartridge designed and/or
developed by one of the major ammunition or arms manufacturers or by a government arsenal.

The 260 is the 308 Winchester necked down. The Creedmoor is slightly smaller with a sharper
shoulder and longer neck. The 6.5x47 is shorter yet, sharper shouldered and features a small
rifle primer po...

Both seem to perform about the same as far as accuracy is concerned. The 260 has a slight
ballistic edge. In the same general category, the 6.5x47 Lapua isn't bad either. GD

If you acknowledge there has to be distortion of the bore, how can you then say it'd be ok?
Even if it's safe, it couldn't be accurate. It's kinda like when you wrap a car around a phone
pole. It's to...

That is a fairly severe bend and I can't see how one could avoid a certain amount of distortion
of the bore. If it was mine, I would probably have straightened it and would have no qualms

I have always liked the Number one and bought my first one in 1971. My most recent was a heavy
barreled 220 Swift for which I had no real use but I got it on a trade where I, typically, lost
my -ss. A...
