    For Sale Zeiss Spotting Scope: 65T-FL Diascope w/ 15-45x Eyepiece

    They were actually made by Meopta for Zeiss. Meopta glass is top notch no doubt. Your Zeiss Diascope should say “Made in Czech Republic” somewhere on the scope or on the original box which is where Meopta is located. The countries of Germany (Zeiss), Czech Republic (Meopta), and Austria...

    Spotting Scopes. Diminished Returns?

    Yep. The Vortex Razors are a great value for the money with a great warranty but they do not compete with top end Leica and Swaro. The Meopta Meostar binos are a undoubtedly better than Vortex and give top end glass from Leica and Swaro a much better run for the money while still costing half...

    Leica Geovid 3200.com Question

    I have the Geovid 3200.com and they are amazing. Not sure on the question tho. I bet it would have to be Bluetooth connected just like it does when you are uploading your ballistics drops from the app. The binoculars have their own weather data like temperature and barometric pressure so unless...

    300 Norma vs 300 Norma Imp

    Yeah and if you don’t like them taking any steps or even having a chance to take another single breath, take the high shoulder shot with the Berger. Dead on the spot before they can even blink and hit the ground so hard it looks like a 10 ton dump truck fell on top of them.

    300 Norma vs 300 Norma Imp

    Not all caliber and weight Bergers I’ve used will completely pass thru, just depends on the animal and shot angle. But in my experience they always have plenty of penetration of 4”-6” on any tough muscle or bone before delivering violent rapid expansion that completely destroys vitals. Which is...

    300 Norma vs 300 Norma Imp

    Not sure what’s going on there. I’ve had nothing but excellent results. Even with shoulder shots I don’t damage meat nearly as bad as I have with other traditional “hunting” bullets back before I started using Berger. I wish I could say it was just luck, but I’ve shot too many animals now to...

    300 Norma vs 300 Norma Imp

    How many animals have you personally harvested with various Berger bullets? I’ve been killing animals from antelope to bull elk since 2006 with Berger bullets in 6.5, 30, and 338 cal. I have never had an issue with excessive meat damage. I will admit that the 215gr in 30 cal is kind of...

    300 Norma vs 300 Norma Imp

    Oh ok, that makes sense. I always forget that there are still some hunters left in California. Lol! And no doubt Berger supply is rough right now. Have always heard good things about Hammers. Keep us posted on how they work out for you

    300 Norma vs 300 Norma Imp

    I hope the Hammers work well for everyone. However, I wonder why a person would pay $63 for a box of 50 Hammer 199gr bullets when Berger is time tested and proven in the field for exceptional accuracy and terminal performance...? Hammer bullets is actually located where I live and my son is...

    300 Norma vs 300 Norma Imp

    I don’t know how much I believe that anymore. I have had many rifles now, from Varmint rounds to large magnums, that shoot just as good from the first firing with virgin brass to shooting with brass fired 3 times. Some even improved rounds. While fireforming is the wisest choice to ensure the...

    300 Norma vs 300 Norma Imp

    Yeah people do that all the time. It’s a great practice for breaking in new brass without sacrificing barrel life

    300 Norma vs 300 Norma Imp

    I shoot 3209 fps with the 140gr Berger in my 6.5 Remington Magnum (26” barrel, 59gr RL26). At about 3230 fps the crappy Remington primer pockets start giving out. Never have gone full throttle with it because I know the Remington brass won’t take it and the brass has always been very hard to...

    300 Norma vs 300 Norma Imp

    Big pass for me on a 7mm-300 Norma. The 28 Nosler is bad enough at scorching barrels pretty fast so I’m sure that one would be really bad. Although I bet speeds would be impressive, I don’t like having to retune rifles as often as I’m sure that case would require. The 300 NMI actually isn’t too...

    300 Norma vs 300 Norma Imp

    Obviously. All I am saying is that they are not slow rounds by any means and deliver far more than enough energy for any North American game animals and excellent accuracy for long range target shooting. If a person already had a long action with a magnum bolt face ready to use and didn’t want...
