    200 round battle pack of 7.62x51 that I paid 21.00 for years ago in the deal, so it will cost
    me 140.00. ...

    The big issue with package guns is Quality overall. Glass is never what I would buy personally.
    There is no comparison between a Savage axis and a CZ527 Varminter. I've taken my CZ to shoots
    before wh...

    The writing on that rifle is not correct for a Dragoon. Stocks on Dragoons were known to have
    brass end caps, want standard 91/30's were put into Dragoon stocks after the upgrade. If you
    want to know ...

    Has anyone actually owned an AK74 or clone??I sold a Romanian WSAR 2, all Romanian made.
    Nothing but the trigger group which was a G2. It was awesome. Optics of any sort were always
    problematic since ...

    They are quite amazing!!!! Brady has taken a pay cut the last 3 years to help the team acquire
    new talent. It paid off. I wish I could have heard the conversation between Chris & Howie Long.
    Do you ev...

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 !

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.
