    Like I said about the bear snippet, this is just a tasty little tidbit and is representative of the whole DVD.;)

    If no one has the DVD yet, watching these should convince them to buy it. It is well worth the price of admission.:)

    Great video/DVD Shawn. I'm glad you guys figured out how to get these small clips posted on here.

    Defensive Edge Video

    I received my copy of the DVD yesterday. It's great and worth every penny of the cost of the video.

    Thanks guys, I am glad it has been so well received. Video work when I started this project was uncharted territory for me it was alot of work but very interesting and alot of fun. The only comment I get about it is most people want to see more shooting. No problem, when "greatest hits V1" is done at the end of this year I will have about 2 hours of video with 10-12 field practice shots including info on how we doped the shot and 10-12 hunts, that should satisify most everyone. Who am I kidding? Real long range hunting guys never get enough of it. :D gun)

    I've read so many of his posts that it's nice to see he's a real person and a great knowledgeable guy( I never expected less). Thx for posting the vid. Wish I had the cash/time to spend a few weeks learning from him.

    Just wait until you get to shoot against/with him! He's fun to watch in competition and is a genuinely good guy. I've been very pleased with the rifle he built me and his DVD is top notch. I recommend that video to anyone starting out in hunting or long range competition.

    It depends on who made the reamer and most manufacturers have several versions. You need to get a oal tool and measure it with your bullet of choice and then start working with it. I find that with the Berger bullets .005"-.010" off the lands is usually pretty good.
