    700 Action into a Mauser stock

    I have a old sporterized Mauser with a beautiful stock. I would like to put a more modern action, probably a 700 clone, that has better trigger options (I like triggers somewhere between very light and telepathic.) Does anybody know if a LA 700 action can be dropped in a mauser inletted stock...

    7mm LRM 180 Berger Hybrids

    before the coolaid hit and all the really cool kids new more about the 28 nolser than anyone else LOL, I caught wind of the 26 nolser coming out and its case size and so on I had a reamer drawn up in 284, had the rifle built and waited for the brass to drop! It had a bartlein 9 twist 28"...

    suppressor for 30 sherman mag

    They are rated up to Ultra Mag (given reasonable barrel length). I run an ultra 9 on my 7 RUM. Smaller calibers put more stress on the can given equal case capacity, but an Ultra 7 or 9 would handle a 30 shermag mag if the barrel is over 18".

    I have an HS precision one that came on a Sendero II that I am looking to sell.

    Revic PMR Experiences

    Off topic, but how does the NX8 compare to the ATCAR?

    norma 7mm rum

    I just bought 150 rounds of Nosler from Cabela's--Nosler 7mm rum brass is just weight sorted and prepped Norma brass, so I wouldn't say it is particularly hard to find, at least by 7mm rum component standards.

    New Gunwerks 6.5-284 Norma

    My calculator says at 1000 yards that load will have 1086 ft*lbs and be traveling 1869fps. That can kill anything if it hits right, but it seems a bit slow for my tastes. However, Berger says 1800fps will open the VLDs, so I'm sure you could make it work. It that case shooting through the...

    6.5prc Barrel Life?

    The 6.5PRC is almost identical to the 6.5x284. Usually benchrest and F-class 6.5x284s get 1200-1500 rounds, sometimes a bit more. Obviously, how you treat it matters. If you are using it for less precise work, you will get more rounds out of a barrel before you start to notice a drop off. A...

    What size rings

    The highs would probably work. The extra high will put the scope over a quarter inch above the barrel.

    To muzzle break or not to muzzle break

    Can you spot hits with that RUM with a break?

    To muzzle break or not to muzzle break

    Not sure why or how I quoted myself.

    To muzzle break or not to muzzle break

    My solution to the same dilemma is a suppressor. About half the recoil reduction of a brake, and obviously it's quieter than either other option.

    New scope for long range elk, $2000 budget

    Thanks for the help guys. I got great deal Cronus BTR for $1000. I love the glass, and the mushy turrets don't bother me, so I'm going to haul that boat anchor around this season. I think the NX8 is the way to go, so I'm going to keep my eyes open for a sale or used one between now and next season.

    New scope for long range elk, $2000 budget

    It is almost 40 ounces though.

    New scope for long range elk, $2000 budget

    I'm looking to replace the 8-32x50 Burris black diamond on my elk rifle with something with better glass and FFP. I can spend up to $2k, maybe slightly more, but I'd rather pay significantly less if the difference is only slight. Some things to consider: -I use my scope in place of a spotting...
