  • Posted in thread: I know the caliber, but what gun? on 06-30-2015 at 03:30 AM
    I paid around $1k for my DPMS LR-260H,I couldn't build a rifle as good for what I paid for this
    one. The only things I've changed from stock is the trigger and butt stock. bad thing about
    the AR10 st...

    It will depend on what the barrel twist rate is on your rifle. Most 25/06 rifles made today use
    a 1-10 twist rate,mine doesn't like to shoot any bullets lighter than 100 grains.A 1-12 or 1-14
    twist ra...

    Just faced the reality. One, I don't handload, and two, the price difference was $500. Let's
    see what happens. Got a 24" barrel.You should be very happy with it.I'd suggest trying out
    several brands/t...

  • Posted in thread: Is the .243 and .260 a real 1000 yard sniper round on 06-21-2015 at 10:24 PM
    Neither are 1000 yard cartridges. The .243 is a 400 yard varmint cartridge. The .260 is a nice
    6.5, but even it's old ancestor the 6.5x55 was an 800 yard cartridge and that was with a scope
    cammed for...

    After two times trimming, the brass gets recycled.You sure waste a bunch of brass then. I
    always trim my brass after each firing for consistency,and will shoot them in general until the
    necks split.On...

    Baaaaaahaaaahaaaahaaaa!You know that I'm speaking the truth. And then the BS censorship that

    here anymore,it seems upper management around here doesn't like the experienced workers.They'd

    Very nice find.

    This is good input, thank you. Do you know what bullet / load you would use in 30.06 if you
    want to maximize power for largest game applications? And do you feel your twist rate would
    affect accuracy ...
