    Chronograph chronographed?

    For what happened, I got lucky - I was shooting over my Chrony (green folding model) and I had the set up closer than I prefer due to a hill in front of my shooting position. A stout gust spun the unit on the tripod just as I pulled the trigger on my 300 WSM. The chrony rotated on the tripod...

    Help Choosing A Precision AR Caliber

    "Match" Chamber?

    Well - coincidentally, I just bought a couple of barrels from NSS. I spoke to James, the sales guy, who was very helpful and knowledgeable, and I asked him what the "Match" chamber was for the .243 AI in their Criterion Barrel, since that was one of the barrels on my shopping list. He told me...

    My boy at 1100 yds on steel! Just bragging

    Well done KPK and son! Thanks for sharing the story and the video. I think there are no better ambassadors for our sport than our youngsters having a great time with their parents who take the time to show them how to enjoy the shooting sports in a safe and responsible way.
