    I tried his duo-spring in a Panda F-Class action. Effect on accuracy was not good. I also would not use a speedlock reduced-weight FP. It's great for when you need a quick lock-time (when you are...

    In my opinion, your best option for getting into F-Class assuming you don't want to build a custom from scratch, is to buy a used turn-key rifle. There are tons of them for sale. If for no other...

    I'll give you my opinions on the subject. In the end, reloading comes down to consistency - you want to control everything that you can control, because when something goes wrong on target, you'll...

    Rich, IMO, you will like the 1/8 dot better. I ran a 1/8 MOA dot for a long time and I probably would have preferred even a 3/32 dot. 1/4 would take up too much real estate on the target. My eyes...

    Well, clamping down on the stock definitely resolved the issue. I dusted the bags with some carnuba wax and adjusted the sand so that it sits on "top" of the forearm a bit more, as Dusty suggested. ...

    Not a bad idea - I could use a C-clamp to clamp the bag down to a bench and see if there's a difference. I'm heading out to the range in a couple of days and I'll try it out. It'll be interesting...

    hmmm. unfortunately, not legal - the rifle has to be able to lift out of the bags or it counts as "attached". Some Open shooters push this particular rule and I've heard stories of a match director...

    Those of you who shooter heavier calibers (7MM and up), how do you deal with (eliminate or otherwise) the rifle twisting in the bags during recoil? Do you clamp the ears on the rest down tighter (I...
