    He got into a hissing contest with Joel back on 06-20-2020 and quit. That was the last we've heard from him. You can look it up.

    Used to shoot service rifle out to 600 yards. When scoring, I could watch the vapor trail left by bullets on a humid day. Some would corkscrew tighter and tighter and eventually settle before going...

    Are you starting with new brass and giving them equal treatment with the collet or do you have brass of mixed ages? Perhaps even some that have been through a bushing die or a body die if they became...

    I have watched the proliferation of AR pistols with interest. Aside from the guaranteed obnoxious muzzle-blast I find them kind of intriguing. However, I couldn't help thinking "isn't this kind of...

    Looking at the Harrell's site, their Remington 700 Short Action 3/8 Dove Tail Rail at $50.00 looks like a real deal. I think I'll spring for one myself.

    As I recall, Harold Vaughn, in "Rifle Accuracy Facts" ran some experiments and found that most of the flex is in the threaded area of the action. So no, a one-piece base will not help that. It will...
