    Fanboy fiction v facts: Ruger v Tikka

    I don't believe it's a publicly traded company. Also, Ruger's market cap isn't $1.5B. Beretta has higher revenues. Sako has been the standard for factory barrels for decades. Ruger historically been an example of the worst. They're better now...

    Is Ruger bigger than Beretta?

    Fanboy fiction v facts: Ruger v Tikka

    I am not sure your logic is sound. Ruger has always been a value oriented company. Sako, not so much.

    Fanboy fiction v facts: Ruger v Tikka

    Ruger has come a long way from what they were. I'll give them that. A Tikka 695 made me a believer.

    300 prc vs 30 nosler

    300 RUM. If you want to shoot 210s or so, the smaller cases like the PRC might make sense. Want to sling 245 grainers? The 300 RUM is better. Do a Wyatts mag box.

    300 PRC hunting build

    Some of the velocities with barrel lengths I've seen posted make me wonder. Also, 6 inches of barrel doesn't weigh 5+ lbs

    300 PRC hunting build

    The RUM does better with the heavier bullets. I'd do a 300 RUM, 28" 1 in 9 throated for long oals, and a Wyatt's box. Short barrels in large magnums, no thanks.

    Possibly. What you got?

    SOLD/EXPIRED Zeiss Conquest HD5 3-14x42 Z-Plex Side Focus

    Comes with box and paperwork. No ring marks that I can see. I did mount it on a 223 for a bit and shot it. Eye relief is too long for me to get it mounted up to my liking. Would be better suited for a deer rifle. Only oddity is that the UPC has been cut off the box by the previous owner. I...

    Thoughts on Lothar Walther?

    With an inside action wrench on a Rem 700, I wouldn't do 150 ft-lbs. That's probably where many people are coming from (R700 stuff). Lilja did an interesting and most likely applicable to the 300 RUM experiment with barrel length. It appears 30" is likely the point of diminishing returns...

    Remington 700: Long Range v. Sendero

    Special is just a word. I could have used "select" instead.

    Remington 700: Long Range v. Sendero

    I am not in the market. I bought a LR in 300 RUM a year ago. Didn't expect much, but it exceeded my expectations. Barrel lasted about 550 rounds. Now has another barrel. Have another 300 RUM that has what is likely a takeoff barrel from a LR (started life as a bare action). It shoots just as...

    Remington 700: Long Range v. Sendero

    Interesting, so the Sendero is almost a semi custom shop gun. It's curious that Remington isn't explicit about the barrel being different.

    Remington 700: Long Range v. Sendero

    I was thinking about this, why does the Sendero command such a premium? MSRP on the Long Range is almost $600 less Action is the same. Yes? I don't see anything indicating the barrel is any better on the Sendero (5R or anything like that) I think the M40 stock is a better stock. Admittedly...
