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
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 ...

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

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
