    floating and non floating neck turning tool/lathe

    I use KM with their holder for a power screwdriver. This setup deals with "the donut" with the right mandrel, and is easy to use. I do not think a lathe based setup is the way to go when you see how easy the KM does the job. The KM is a floating system that controls everything where it has to.

    Triggertech issues

    Could the original poster please explain how he is tapping a firing pin with a mallet? What is the weight of the mallet? Not being a jerk here. Just trying to determine what is being done to cause the sear to slip. Are you taping the back of the bolt shroud? I also have TT and Jewel and others.

    barrel crown type

    Years ago Precision Shooting magazine did a test where they damaged a barrel crown progressively to see how it would affect accuracy. If I recall it took quite a bit of damage to degrade accuracy. It really surprised me. I have always favored the 11 degree but maybe it does not make much...

    Which is better and why? Direct Impingement Gas or Piston Operated?

    My two cents. Build the rifle yourself. Build it around a custom barrel from Craddock Precision with a head spaced bolt. The barrel will take you a while to get. Avoid a rifle on a proprietary AR platform. Large frame ARs are not standardized like the small frame AR platform. Some uppers will...

    Redding parts non interchangeable

    These guys do a dedicated 20 Practical die set. I think it is listed under 20-223. You would still need a bushing die for forming though.

    Anybody hunting with a 17 Hornet and if so what's your take on it.

    I have a Savage 17 Hornet. It is a very efficient little cartridge. I like it but for me a 20 Practical in an AR has all but replaced it. The only caution I would add is available brass. For bolt guns I have become a bit of a brass snob. My Hornady brass in 17 Hornet was not great. Some primer...

    Everyone needs to see this

    Thanks Butterbean and thanks to those who pointed out the issues with sabots and muzzle brakes. I had known not to do shoot sabots with a brake but did not make the connection while watching the video. The individual that was injured did not did not seem to make the possible connection between...

    Squirrels in my F150!

    Here is my F250 story. Went on vacation for a week. Came back to single digit cold. My truck has a remote start. Several try's with no start. Just slow cranking. I went out to put the charger on it and lifted the hood to find it full of pine cones. I mean full, right to the top of the hood. If...

    Best Binoculars up to $800.00...?

    Since this is the LRH forum I will also recommend the 3000BDX Black Edition. I recommended the Nikons above but you cant beat the value in the 3000BDX Black. I have the original 3000BDX. I think the only difference is fewer profiles. The glass is mid tier but not bad. The rangefinder works well...

    Need help Vortex Fury 5000 HD AB or Sig 3000bdx

    I have the Sig and am also waiting on the Vortex tests. Vortex has full AB onboard and some other nice features. I do like the Sig 3000BDX though. I would like to see Sig match the Vortex on features and move up to Zulu 7 Glass on the 3000BDX replacement.

    Best Binoculars up to $800.00...?

    In 10x42 value I like the Nikon Monarch HG. I bit over 800.00 but well regarded by the bird watching crowd and won best of the test by Field and Stream against some more expensive competitors a few years back.
