    Quick Load Request 308 Norma Magnum

    Finally got to take my Ruger tang safety with a new 26" Shaw barrel 308 Norma Magnum to the range for a few test loads to see where it's at.I was quite impressed with the velocities.Groups where OK at 3/4",but a little load adjustment I think it will do better.I was expecting about 100fps less...

    Ran my loads over the chronograph today.Used WLRM primer on all,with Winchester cases.The 46.5 Accurate 4064 load is slightly compressed.I shot two groups with TAC and one four shot group with the CFE223.This was all the ammo I loaded for this test.Velocities were fairly close,just a tad over...

    30cal 165gr Ballistic Tips vs 168gr Ballistic Tips

    I was looking at the bullet lengths the other day.I seem to always have a little better accuracy with 168gr Ballistic Tips over the 165gr Ballistic Tips in most of my rifles.I just find the 168gr just easier to get to shoot better.You would think there wouldn't be that must difference in just...

    New 338-06 Test Load

    Sent one of my 30-06 rifles to JES and had it rebored to a 338-06.I ran some test loads and this is one of my three shot groups at 100yds using 59.0grs of Ramshot Big Game and a 200gr Nosler Ballistic Silvertip.I think I'll try that one again.Gotta love those Nosler bullets.2800+ fps with a...

    Took My Donor Rifle Out To See If It Would Shoot.

    Just bought a 1982 Remington 700 BDL 30-06.I bought it because I was thinking I would take the Leupold scope it had on it and put it on my .22 magnum,rebarrel the action with a match grade barrel and probably just sell the stock.I took it out and shot it just to see if the scope was good and...

    Cheap Borescope Not Too Bad

    I got my 10 dollar Ebay China special today.I hooked it up to my laptop and ran an inspection.I'm quite impressed with it so far.I checked one of my rifles that showed some copper fouling.Couldn't really see the detail that well until I did this.I made a slightly loose plug out of a paper...

    Frankford Arsenal Trim and Prep Center

    I got my Frankford Arsenal Trim and Prep Center today,I tell you what,that machine is impressive.I wish I would have bought one a long time ago.It is very easy to set up,the trim lengths are consistent too.Trim,chamfer,deburr and clean primer pockets takes about 10-20 seconds for each...

    165gr Nosler BT VS Coyote Warning:Graphic Wound Channel

    I don't think 165gr Nosler BT's are good for coyotes if you want to save the pelts,but they sure can kill them quickly.I shot this one with a 30-06 at 125yds, loaded with 58.5grs of AA-4350,WLRM primer,MV @ 2940fps.If you look close at the top of the wound cavity,you can see the little green tip.

    Ramshot Hunter Powder
