    300 Weatherby Ammo

    I just purchased some 220 grain round nose ammo for my 300. What will the round nose do ballistically compared to say a nosler? 200-400 yards? Will the bottom fall out?

    SOLD/EXPIRED Wtb remington 541s

    I have a 541t. IDK if you would be interested but you can make an offer. It is a 9 of 10. The only prob is the stock has a scuff from taking rest on a fence post. Easy fix. Everything else is flawless.

    500 yard shooting.

    I hope those woods behind the target are under your control.... A few clicks too many and a passing squirell hunter could get a hunt of a lifetime!!

    Info on breaking in a new Remington SPS700 in .223

    How do I know what barrel twist I have? Does a more twist mean u can shoot a smaller bullet? I guess since I bought a factory gun then the twist will dictate what grain bullet I will have to shoot thus limiting me to the yardage. I don't have to shoot 1000yards.. I am basically going to...

    Info on breaking in a new Remington SPS700 in .223

    So do I break the barrel in on just any cheap ammo? I would like to have some idea what the gun is doing durring this period but I hate to waist expensive ammo to do that. Also is there any way to buy ammo off the shelf and expect anything good or do I just need to plan on hand loading to...

    Thank you very much. I am thinking I will go with the Leup. One more question. I always cleaned my gun just with patches and solvent. Do I need to run a wire brush? Copper?

    How does a suppressor effect long range shooting?

    I have one on a 10-22. I love it!! I have raced dirt track cars my whole life and have a problem with hearing. I love shooting but i grew up shooting without ear muffs or any protection. It is feasable to set up your rifles with suppressors? What is the legality of hunting coyotes and...
