    What are your uses for different brass?

    From what you said I assume you are talking about 223 brass. If you are using it for hunting I don`t bother sorting. I do keep different`t batches for the gun I use for serious bench shooting, but I also trim and turn the neck on this brass. Unless your wanting groups under 1/2 moa don`t worry...

    Rangefinder help

    I have owned 7 or 8 rangefinders looking for what I want. As a rule of thumb they will not range a deer at more than 1/2 of their rated distance. For the small stick in your pocket range finders the Leica 1200 is the best I have ever owned, but falls far short for my needs. I now use a Bushnell...

    First AR for coyote and target

    I like the RR`s. I bought my first one with a heavy target configuration and when I got done changing it it`s a the coyote special, could have saved some big bucks buying one to start with. I bought 2,000 bulk bullets for hunting and when I started to work up a load I shot a .690 group at 100...

    I`ve never had much luck calling. I kill most of mine watching corn fields that are being shelled. I`ve never shot at a coyote that was standing still, so I pack an AR with a long ranger wildcat of some kind close at hand if I see one way out there. I have killed some just setting and watching...

    Savage Stevens 200 .223

    I picked one up awhile back in 308. They are hard to beat for the price. It`s a Savage 110 action with a non adjustable trigger, but that you can fix. The trigger has a hole threaded in the trigger foe a set screw so all you have to do is put a screw in it and ether cut the spring of put in a...

    Wandering if anyone here has any info. on the 6mm-300WSM

    Wich you were close. I have a very large pile of WC 869 and WC872, in fact they are the reason I bought the reamer. I thought they would be good in the 6-284, but they are way to slow for that round. What is your twist rate and barrel lenth? I`m going with an 8 twist and the longest barrel I can...

    coyote calling in ohio

    I have yet to kill a coyote over a call in Ohio. We did call one in a nite, but he busted us before Gene could get off a shot. I`m thinking that we have been useing the call to loud. Gene`s call had weak batterys the last time we were out and I could not even hear it 40 yrds from him, but I...

    best bang for the buck . night vision for coyotes

    If you can`t swing Gen 3 nite vision you might want to try one of the lazer deisignators. I like Gen 3 goggles and a lazer sight on the AR. If you go that way do not get a green lazer. With a low powered red lazer you will have no trouble seeing the lazer way past the range of your rifle, and...

    Accuracy gone?

    Have you used a copper soulvent when cleaning the rifle? The other thing that comes to mind is your new load are eather to heavy or to lite for the twist of your rifle.

    As said before, only fire lap as a last resort. The only barrel I seen increased accuracy in was one that was fouled with Molly. If your barrel is copper fouling try some JB bore past. It`s about as abrasive as tooth past so it does take some scrubing, but it won`t take out your throught like...

    what power scope?

    If one of your uses will be coyote killing I would sugest the 3.5 x 10 Leupold. My main carrey gun for coyotes is a RR AR with a 3 x 9 Leupold on it. I have killed several coyotes past 200 yrds. and a couple right at 300 with it and have yet to kill a coyote with the scope set on anything but...

    Been yote hunting

    I hope your young and tough. It only took me 1 trip to the field to figure out that I didn`t want a heavy barrel upper for coyote hunting. A hint, I put electrical tape on my stainless barrel to hide the shine.
