    My former gunsmith

    used a 7MM HBR rifle for a few years. Made his own bullets and said it shot great. Problem was getting jackets. He gave up but I think he still has the rifle and dies but doubt he's sell them. I've...
  2. Exactly

    If I hadn't begun watching YouTubes a couple of years ago, I would have died never knowing some of these things exist. Living pretty far back from the "Main Stream" of America, likely I never would...

    For those interested in precision

    Robin Rensetti has put up a new Youtube on the precision rebuilding of the spindle in his mill if anyone is interested in the whats involved in the correct way to install precision bearings and a...
  4. This promises to be

    about as enduring as the AR class was I'd say. To old farts like me, a total waste of band width.

  5. I have been watching

    A couple of Youtube creators who go to the junk yards and by LS engines trying to pick the aluminum blocks and heads, adding turbos to them and make them run. The LS engines seem to be very robust....

    In the Smallbore Silhouette world

    I have not seen anyone using multiple lots of ammo. Those stinkin Rams @ 107 yards have to have a pretty small grouping to be able to hit them and I've never seen anyone using two or more lots of...

    I have one

    that was built by a "Gunsmith". When I sent it to a second Gunsmith for a re-barrel it was discovered that the "Gunsmith" hadn't done much good for the action when he thought he had trued it.

    It seems to me

    that we are making things a lot more difficult than they have to be by not recognizing a good thing when we see it. Foolish to stay entrenched in the 64 ths system regardless of the Moon.

    How come the US hasn't embraced the metric system?

    It seems to make more sense and a whole lot easier. The Auto industry has done it to some extent so why not just do it. 10's are a heck of a lot easier than 64 ths! Even England seems to have gone...
  10. Well deserved

    Gary has put more into the sport than most. He is a great tuner and shooter. I hope his new endeavor goes well for him and Cooper. I can think of several Coopers he has helped shoot as well as any...

    The maker of Falcons

    sorta dropped out of making them years ago. I heard he makes expensive 1911's or the like instead. I've seen at least one that shoots well. Doug Bell has one that does ok, as I remember. Falcon made...

    @ 65, your just gettin started

    I jumped back in last year @ 74 and still do OK. The thing now is we don't have anything to prove except we were able to show up. Them Lenzi front rests are awful nice, by the way!

    Too much for an old man to remember

    Uth is truly wasted on the yung! I've never been interested in memorizing the computer operating stuff so I have remained pretty much ignorant of them since my first Commodore 54 or 56, whichever it...

    I agree Bill

    4 WD trucks get stuck too. I've had both and much prefer a 2 WD. I have been out of the snow winters for 12 years so 2 WD is fine for me. I recently bought a nice 85 S 10 Chevy I am in the process of...

    Lenzi Front rests

    Saw the biggest number of them in one place Saturday, 3 in a line among 4 Club Rimfire shooters. Thought it interesting that Club shooters would have Lenzi rests and rear bags and branny new 2500...

    Something new to read about

    There is an interesting article in the Kennebec Journal about Cooper Firearms entry into Sports rifles, among other things I found interesting. They are sponsoring a Shooter full tilt. I don't recall...

    Ya

    What I figured, we ain't talkin the same language. A zero group is a zero group any way one looks at it but I can see it's pointless to continue with this.

    I think there is a difference

    between score shooting tuning and Group shooting tuning somehow. We strive to hit the same hole every time, actually, if one wants to win a VFS match they had better be able to. Why anyone would want...

    We arrived at our winter quarters yesterday afternoon without any problems. Everything here is in reasonable shape considering it has sat here for 7 months idle. We seemed to have drug chilly air...

    I read through the Lee Luber thread

    AND, i have changed my mind a bit regarding power amounts and the process in total. Firstly I would say it is ASOLUTELY critical to know exactly how long loaded rounds are using proper measuring...

    I didn't measure

    but .100" would be the max shoulder on that barrel or .050" a side. Not very much and a poor place to save weight if that was the intention. More likely it was barrel length that was the issue.

    It surprised me

    that Savage would not have noticed the barrel shoulder barely fit in the first place? A flat washer that is a bit bigger than the barrel O.D. seems appropriate to me. If it comes back, I'll do that....
