    E Lock or Dial

    I have an e lock and I wish I had a dial. I have replaced the keypad twice, and it goes through batteries way faster than I ever imagined I would. One every few months. You won't have those issues with a dial. Not as quick, but I have a gun handy outside my safe all the time anyway so no need to...

    Even Factory ammo can be over pressure!

    Years ago I bought a brand new Rem. 700 in 22-250. I took it out to shoot it with factory ammo and nearly blew it up. There was definite signs of over pressure with FLAT primers, and head stamp starting to flatten. I sent the gun back to Remington where they determined the chamber was cut too...

    Proud dad, and excited dad!!

    It is great spending time with your kids and teaching them to shoot. Did you also teach them to clean up the broken bottles?

    Help me understand…

    Thanks to all who have responded. The answers seem very reasonable as explanations. If I understand correctly, it would seem 4064 must become erratic if more powder were used to increase pressure, whereas 4831 would overfill the case since it is a compressed load already. as far as burn rate...

    Help me understand…

    I know there are some very knowledgeable people on this forum, so I will put this out here. I am a bit confused about some of the load data I am seeing for different powders. Using the same bullet and cartridge, but different powders, I see different velocities and pressures, but not exactly...

    suggestions for rifle for my wife...

    I will if I can find bullets and primers for it. The bullets are a lot more expensive than .224 bullets. I bought 3000 .224 55 gr bullets for .05 each. 6mm bullets seem to be around 30 - 40 cents each. I can't find large rifle primers but I have 1700 small rifle primers. That is why I wanted a...

    suggestions for rifle for my wife...

    I appreciate your offer, and it could be nice to have. I am looking for a "long Range" solution...pun intended, so I thought it would be best to get her a .223, and still have the 6mm for her as well and save money on the ammo.

    suggestions for rifle for my wife...

    Wow! I am overwhelmed with all the responses! Thank you. You have given many things to think about and some good suggestions I hadn't thought of. I would be buying this for her to just go out shooting with me, and possibly for varmints, since she already has the 6mm to use on deer and elk. Yes...

    suggestions for rifle for my wife...

    My wife has a 6mm Remington model 600 already, but due to the fact it is difficult to find ammo for even when ammo is available and expensive when you do find it, I am considering a new rifle for her. I think it would be a .223 so we could get and reload ammo for and it would be affordable to...

    Bullet choices for 270

    For what it's worth, I purchased my .270 Rem 700 in 1974, and I first used 130 gr. bullets using whatever was cheap, usually Hornady. It always shot terrific. I later tried and settled on 140 gr. hornady spbt and they shoot great. Best bullet I have used. I have never had a problem with any...

    I think I’ve been scammed!

    I was once expecting a check from a bank that was to be over-nighted with signature required. Found it on my doorstep the next day in an envelope being blown around by the wind. The check was a payoff for over $47,000.00. They were a bit concerned when I called them to ask where it was. I...

    Seating depth tests

    Years ago I purchased a Remington 700 ADL 22.250. I got the ADL specifically because it was cheap, had a light barrel and I wanted to learn how to tune a rifle for accuracy. First thing I did was free float the barrel, and bedded the action. I then lapped the action, and started trying different...
