  • Posted in thread: 10mm loads and Colt Delta Elite on 05-19-2016 at 10:09 PM
    I would not worry about new springs, unless you are trying to tame recoil a bit. The 10mm
    rounds made now are not what it was intended for. The FBI loading seems to have become the
    norm. I still use d...

    I agree with Jim and Bear. It does depend on the use as the primary factor. I use a strait 4x32
    on my 6.5x55 hunter. 20 yard to 300 is no issue. I have changed my .308HB distance rifle from a

    You can shoot 9mm cheaper than 22 mag right now. That is why I want a single shot or bolt
    action 9mm. The Sub2K is fun though.Stocking up in years past does help quite a bit. The last
    .22WMR I bought ...

    Congrats! My Ruger M77 is my favorite hunting rifle. Something you can try, if youdon't
    already. When you are done hunting, take the round out of the chamber, pushit down into the
    mag, hold it under t...

    A very good family friend recently decided to move up north. He said he wasn't going to bring
    most of his guns and wanted to know if I wanted any. I ended up buying a mossburg .17 hmr, a
    Ruger model 7...

    They have "gain twist" or progressive rifling. Accurate, for a military gradecarbine, if you
    can overlook other design issues. IIRC, they were there to help the Italians lose two world
    wars.Wikipedia ...

  • Posted in thread: Anyone have a 280 Remington? on 04-30-2016 at 08:29 PM
    I don't own a .280 currently. I'm not sure how you chamber short, but you do shoot standard
    .280 in a .280AI to fire form it. I can attest that the 7mmRM likes 140 and 160gr bullets. I've
    loaded down ...

  • Posted in thread: Colt commander (light weight ) 9mm on 04-28-2016 at 09:57 PM
    I have an heirloom commander 9mm with the "lightweight" lower receiver made of Colt Alloy (
    trade name someone told me? ). I don't know when it was manufactured or what it's worth to a
    collector, and ...

  • Posted in thread: 2 scopes, 2 rifles: which combination? on 04-26-2016 at 11:36 AM
    The answer would be a cheekpiece that raises your spot-weld. Just like you would do on a bolt
    gun.One of them there plastic or leather thing-a-ma-jigs!:D I did know, been playing at this
    game for 42 ...

    I have a 3-15x50 weaver on another AR (float tube handguard). I'm able to use a standard Burris
    PEPR mount with it. I've had the 2-10x50 mounted with see-through rings. With Butler Creek flip

Thanks for the links on DGRs . Rugers,Alaskan in 375 R in an 8 lb rifle. - too light for caliber ?

I was researching the BC for the 338 vs 7 mm debate and I decided to look up your favorite .366:

Nosler 250 gr. BC .494

Nobler 286 gr. SD 307. BC .494. Accubond

Woodleigh 320 gr. SD 341 BC .457

With these high BCs, they just might turn the "potato checker" into a longer range weapon. Worth a try at least...

GUNS - June digital edition "Strictly Down the Middle" - article on 9.3 x 62. Enjoy !
February 11, 2013  •  05:28 PM
I never checked my comment section. I do love the 9.3. I use Speer 270gr sp and Hornady 286gr sp. I use the 270's on whitetail, but they are addiquite for black bear. The Hornady have a BC of .410 and an SD of .305. With a 150 yard zero in my x57 at 2100fps MV it packs 2100fpe, at 200 yards -4.4" and 1900fpe, 250yards -11.8" and 1715fpe. A slight hold over out to 250 yards and it is still a wrecking ball. I'm fine w/ it at 150 yard max and iron sights.
