    Will also penetrate skin. Have one in my abdomen to prove it. Too deep to easily remove. Doc thought it best to leave. Be careful out there!!

    Are you looking for the old Shilen "Raygun" stock or something newer. The Raygun is a thumbhole laminate, but it is on the large side with the trigger guard made into the stock. Also has a shelf for...

    I'm somewhat of a heretic when it comes to barrel cleaning. I only shoot coated bullets and I never clean between relays. I have observed that some of my barrels seem to need cleaning between...

    Friend of mine sold one on Accurate Shooter less than a week ago for $1500. I already have two, but was sorely tempted.

    Clearly you have received a lot of very good advice. I'll only add a little as I'm one of those who tend to try and reinvent the whee and understand where you are coming from. The mentor thing is #1...

    Al makes an extremely good point. It is impossible to learn what the flags are telling you when you have a rifle that's only capable of hitting the aim point once in a while. It is also true that...

    I don't know that there is such an animal. If there is, I've never seen it. But, don't despair. You can do this. Boyer's and Ratigan's books will help, but the best way to learn, in fact probably the...

    Buck Creek UBR 8/17 results

    Sorry for the late posting. Only got these results last night. I don't know much about the match other than the mirage was pretty bad at 200.

    Yesterday was a typical Red Brush day. While the wind wasn't exactly strong it couldn't make up it's mind which direction or how fast it wanted to blow. The first couple of relays at 100 went pretty...

    Very good advice. I've already learned that over 3400 with an 80 gr is pushing the envelope on a hot day and surely don't intend to go through all that again with brass. Primers falling out when the...

    Al, I'll have to confess that I haven't. When I considered the brass prep and fire forming for the Grinch, I folded under the pressure and went with 200 pieces of 6.5 Lapua. I have attempted to...

    Wish I could help with that Frankie, but my only part in that match was calling it and taking the pic. You should contact Billy for a correction.

    I can't say what every FFL will do, but the one I use would accept it with a new serial #. Another option, although it would take some doing is to remove the barreled action from the stock and then...
