    2022 Winter Nilgai Hunt

    Would be a great choice especially if 338 aI improved. Premium Bullet or a must! Barnes tsx are my bullet of choice. I shot eland kudu, gemsbok and zebra with the in 375 and 416. your 300 with tsx and a well place shot will do it. With the 375 or 416 you can reach the vitials from any angle...

    Good article on why everyone either loves or hates the 6.5cr

    I own one because I won a kimber hunter at a NRA banquet. I was a RSO at. 1000 yard range in New Orleans. There is no cheaper way to get started than hornady ammo and Savage rifle. The combos almost always shot sub moa. it will out performed the average 308 at 1000 yards because of the higher...

    First custom rifle build (flood me with your suggestions or advice)

    What you hoping for in throat life. Got to be fun to shoot . I was a RSO and instructor at 1100 range. Seeing impacts on steel at sea level in our mirage was problem even with 6.5 some days . That’s got to make a nice splash can you see it in the soup

    First custom rifle build (flood me with your suggestions or advice)

    Unless your are building a rifle for prs competition I would avoid the 6mm47 . It is a fine accurate round that launches high bc Bullets. It’s chosen for prs because of minimal recoil and the ability to allow a shooter to recover quickly from recoil during a timed event If you want a rifle...

    Should I buy a new press ?

    keep your Hornady lock and load. Remove the Hornady powder measure, get a dillion 550 powder funnel in right cal for it. I use 2 electric powder dispensers and manually drop the charge. It is seldom I have to wait long for a charge. Hand de-prime and clean cases before sizing. The priming...

    Cost of full custom rifle but on budget?

    A Kimber aspen for about $1800 in 280 ackley if you reload will do what you want all day long. Go the ackley for longer case life. The on 6.5 I would consider is the 6.5prc or the wild cat 6.5 280 ackley improved. Then your stuck with reloading. Don t spend money on a Remington donor You can get...

    6.5 CM or 260 Rem

    Not to mention no accuracy unless you can find a 7” twist

    6.5 CM or 260 Rem

    You are not going to do that with a 22” barrel with either. My kimber pro hunter in 6.5 cm barely approaches 2700 with factory Ammo. At sea level . I think of the cm and stock 260 has a 500 yard deer round. Yes it can kill further out in skillfully hands but it is running out of steam. The 7 mm...
