    Sometimes you get lucky. A friend and fellow shooter just called. Turns out he has a barrel with that chambering and history suggests it may have even been chambered with the same reamer. He also has...

    Al, I'd have to say that they all have shot better with a tuner. But I'll need to qualify that. I only shoot score and I have from day one, gone to matches pre loaded. In many places there is a wide...

    Far be it from me to criticize someone with Gene Bukys creds. But it has never made sense to me to have a tool to adjust the tune, then lock it down and go back to tuning with powder. Obviously it...

    Hi Bob,
    Welcome. No, none of your questions are inane and 75 isn't too old for this game. You are, in fact, in your prime. BR is a game for old men like you and me. Although I've been playing the...

    The only person who can truly determine that is you. The extra 5% or so that makes the winner just a little better than 2nd place can cost a lot of $$. Most of us are satisfied with Harrell's dies or...

    Can't guarantee anything but I'll hazard a guess. There is a European cartridge 5.6x50 and also 5.6x50 rimmed. The case is the same diameter as a 223 and 222 Rem Mag, just a little longer. I have a...

    That reamer can be set back and there will be room for a larger base. I had m Beggs reamer done a couple of years ago. No big deal. Cheaper and quicker than a new one.

    I think you meant "exorcise", they are already "exercising" the shooters. Matter of fact, we planned it that way, sorta like sand traps in strategic places. Like Gallatin was, if you can shoot here...

    I won't disagree with the mechanics or where the stretched brass comes from. To me it's just semantics. I just think that to do it one time is a better idea than throwing the brass away. I know you...
