    Your in Tx. Everything is pretty predictable. You have not seen rain in ?? how many years, so
    no mirage compared w/ 90% humidity and ground evaporation. No real prevailing winds. Bring that
    rifle up h...

    I do reload yes, and I am choosing .308 because a family friend of mine that does competitive
    shooting shoots .308 for all his rifles and that is what he recommended I start out with.Try
    loading the 1...

    OK, Listen and I'll educate you. I started using the 6.5x55 before it was cool. I also hand
    load and am very anal about it. If I were to attempt a 6.5x55 1000 yards rifle, I would start
    with a 139gr S...

    Get the 5R Mil spec, it is a better rifle.You can get a decent scope for around $1000. The
    Sightron SIII is a very good scope, as are the Vortex Viper PST series.The Sightron has better
    glass and trac...

    $1200-$1500 for now. I am a college student so I can't want to spend a fortune, I plan on just
    piecing it together over time. I was thinking of just building a decent .308 to start shooting
    some longe...

    Most 25-06 rifles produced today use a 1-10 twist rate on the barrel, mine doesn't shoot them

    Shade,Unless you are planning on shooting professionally or designing your own Wildcat
    cartridge,I really can't see why you would ever need a pressure trace machine.Your

    Good advice on the brass cleaning. Never could understand why so many want to run dirty brass
    thru their dies.Been reloading over 35 years,and rarely ever clean pistol brass. Carbide dies
    are a whole ...

    So I'm looking at buying a Cadex chassis system for my remington 700 based action.Looks to be
    fairly lite weight and really sturdy.If I don't get this I'll get a McMillan a5. I really enjoy
