    Leveling scope off the bottom

    I've had success in a bind with using a brand new utility knife blade. I push the sharp part of the blade down and against the back of one of the grooves in the pic rail and lift the back of the blade until it contacts the flat bottom of the scope erector. It will be very obvious if the scope...

    Selecting a reticle

    My suggestion would be to focus on getting a scope that has the reticle in the first focal plane (FFP) vs Second Focal Plane (SFP), and has turrets that you can dial. Just as important is a reticle that has subtensions (the little hash marks) with values assigned to them, so you can learn how...

    sale me on the 6.5 creedmore

    Most all of the following has been covered by others but since there are so many haters and jokesters about the CM, I thought I would throw out a few 'pitches' for the CM. While the CM isn't the best of anything (except maybe the best marketing) it gets above average marks in almost all...

    Enough Bullet in the Case Neck?

    My personal rule (that I sometimes break) is to have one bullet diameter of engagement plus the (boattail) in the case. It just seems to make sense to me, geometrically speaking. You have that plus some. I would let it rip, and if you need to ouch it out further, I wouldn't hesitate to push it...

    6.5/284 Norma

    Since your WBY action is a long action, I think you will be fine with the 155 class bullets in that mag

    I GIVE! What is this accessory?

    I just picked up a Zeiss Conquest V4 and it came with a nice laminated dope card with some interesting information on the back of it. Any idea what it is and how I am supposed to use it.

    Which Berger?

    Forgot to mention, my 215s are seated out a ways and I don't have much room left in the magazine. Im not sure anything longer than the 215 would even work for me. Might be something to consider before you buy a bunch of 230s

    Which Berger?

    I shoot the 215, but I also have a 10 twist. I'm not familiar with the terminal performance of the 230, but the 215 is a Hammer on Elk.

    Chronograph

    Buster took the words right out of my finger tips. I call it error stacking. Example: Rifle with awesome ammo, awesome shooter, awesome range, no wind= .25moa All the same with deviation in ammo = 1 moa All same with shooter in compromised position and heart pumping out of your chest= 2 moa I...
