    1 MOA: 1" = 95.5 Yards

    LOL.....about 20 years ago I made a call to Leupold and asked them if their LR scopes' adjustment was in inches or MOA. I got the equivalent of a blank stare!!LOL Tod

    New project!! .30 LR Rifle

    I am going to have to back off on that statement......I was following a big discussion over at the Accurate Shooter website a while back. There were several smiths on there talking about extractors. Hell, they may have been talking about a Sako conversions. I can't remember.:( I can not...

    New project!! .30 LR Rifle

    Been shooting (and winning) 1000 yard matches with the 300 WSM for years. Short answer...no..the 300 WSM will NOT push a 220+ grain bullet to 3000. LOVE it to death for accuracy, but it just doesn't have the HP. If jo blow says HE does it, it is because it is WAY HOT and not safe.

    New project!! .30 LR Rifle

    also.....do a little research on the (safety) drawbacks of an M16 type extractor.

    New project!! .30 LR Rifle

    True...the bullet "gets into the case"...but there is SO MUCH MORE CASE with the 300 RUM. It will still be faster than a Nosler and a PRC.

    New project!! .30 LR Rifle

    Of the ones you mentioned....300 RUM. No need to mess with the bolt, and with ADG and Bertrom making GREAT 338 EDGE brass, all you need to do to make PERFECT brass is neck them down to an exact crush fit (like forming dasher brass). 3000+, no belt, no bolt work. Simple. Just my .02 (and I...

    best long range elk gun

    "the gun writer must think people are stupid the length of the cartridge is direct to the range of the weapon." OK...then why is the military moving to the 300 and 338 Norma for it's sniper rifles? They are both shorter than the 300 Win Mag.;)

    How long is too long?

    2000 yard comp this summer. I may play with it at IBS 1000 yard matches when the weather is HELL, but I already shoot a 300 WSM in HG. I am going to shoot my Hunting rifle in the 2000 LG class (30 inch EDGE..300 @ 2960). Could probably just save my $ and shoot MY Hunting gun in both...

    How long is too long?

    I'll skip the story.....so....338 EDGE for ELR comp. Platform will be my 85 pound IBS HG (85 LB's). Going to chamber up another EDGE tube. 1.45" straight taper. Obviously weight is of no concern. Looking for all out speed without degrading accuracy. Is 36 inches too long? 300 GR Bergers...

    best long range elk gun

    If the 338 Lapua is not a hunting cartridge, why would the Norma be one. The were BOTH designed for LR sniping if I am not mistaken. To the OP.....the med large 338's (Lapua, Norma, EDGE, RUM) would be a manageable mix of power and recoil. Just my .02, Tod

    Valdada Ram 200 moa. adj.base

    Were you able to directly bolt the rings onto the new base, or do you have to remove the rings from the scope and start from scratch?
