    Barrel-chamber misalignment?

    Just an update on this. I saw them again at the range and they said they took it to an outdoor range and could not get a good group at 100 yards. It belonged to the wife and, since she just had some major surgery, she decided to sell it and get a 6.5 Creedmore. Anyway, sounds like they just got...

    Pros and cons of custom reloading die...

    ...made to chamber specs. So, Warner Tools will make a reloading die to your chamber if you send them several rounds of fired brass. I'm aware that this provides minimal reworking of the brass for a full length resize. What are some of the other pros and cons? Is such a die useless when it comes...

    Barrel-chamber misalignment?

    Thanks for the quick and thoughtful reply. I heard back from them just a bit ago and they let me know that the rifle has a 20 MOA base on it. After hearing that, I suggested they check that the scope is returned to zero and shoot for best group. If it's still that low at 25 yards, it seems to me...

    Barrel-chamber misalignment?

    I read the article by Winker on this site but still wanted to ask about this. So, I'm an RSO at a local range, indoor, 25 yds. max. We are rated though for anything up to, and including, .50 BMG. A couple came in with a brand new Savage 112 in .338 LM, Vortex 4-12 (IIRC) to get it sighted in...

    Advice for a new RSO

    I haven't been here for quite a while and, having now been working 16-21 hours/week as an RSO at a relatively new indoor range (one year anniversary on June 10) I just wanted to update this. So, we have a great facility and a great crew, and because of that, we already have a top notch...

    Viersco--Black Diamond Rifles ?

    It appears there's no longer a website for the rifles Dave was making. I still see the page for ordering dies. I'm interested in one of his large micrometer seating dies. Is everything still OK there as far as people here know? Any other source for similar quality dies? I have a resizing die...

    School me please, .375 CheyTac LRB and bullet selection

    Thank you for the thoughtful reply. I will look into the references you made. Your CheyTac does seem to be running a significantly heavier load than what I remember the standard round does, but I need to familiarize myself more before I start. I have 2 lbs. of Retumbo that I bought to start...

    Super sonic neccessary at 1760 yds?

    If you're right at the edge of the distance where the bullet will transition to sub-sonic, it seems to me that there would not be much chance for significant deflection at that point. I'm curious also. I hear a lot about inaccuracies from transition to subsonic, but I have no idea what that...

    School me please, .375 CheyTac LRB and bullet selection

    So, I'm going to try one more time to get into LR shooting. I have an older rifle that I bought before I retired (back when I had money). I didn't have time to do anything then, bought it for when I retired. I retired, things went south for a while (wife had cancer, multiple surgeries, chem...

    Marines

    LOL. Good one. I read that to my wife and she just about busted a gut on that one.

    Advice for a new RSO

    Thanks all. Just to be clear, so that I'm not giving the wrong impression, when I was asking about pet peeves, I meant those that shooters might have about RSOs, not vice versa. I've been asking around in various places and have been hearing that RSOs at some ranges have really ruined the...

    Advice for a new RSO

    So, it looks like I'll be giving it a try as an RSO. I've already got my certifications and, though it's been a while, have spent a fair amount of time on indoor ranges (4 position smallbore competition). This will be an indoor range. For those who have been, or currently are, RSOs, words of...

    Decapping .375 CheyTac as separate step

    Yeah, I'm 10-15 minutes from there. How do you know Frederick, your info says you're in NJ?

    Decapping .375 CheyTac as separate step

    Yeah, I've got one brand new one, unused, if you want it. I thought the .50 might have been BMG .50 but apparently not. The CheyTac cartridge won't fit up into it. BTW, like the screen name. LOL.

    Decapping .375 CheyTac as separate step

    Hmmm, my seating die won't work but maybe I could do the next best thing and get an inexpensive neck resizing die in .408 CheyTac and use it just for decapping.
