    Anyone have a Seekins Havak? Need some info on loads

    I recently purchased a Havak PH2. I first tried some factory Hornady Precision Hunter 143 ELD-X and got groups of around an inch and I was quite frankly a little disappointed. I had a few ELD-X 143 bullets so I loaded a few starter test rounds with 50 grains of Reloder 23 and it put 3 shots...

    Considering McMillan stock for Ruger Hawkeye African .375 Ruger

    Thanks for the help guys. The mcwoody looks nice. If I read their website correctly that is a molded stock. I'm up in the U.P. sitting on my bear stand as I type this but I will give McMillan a call next week when I get back home. I have no issues with the HS Precision stock either. I...

    Considering McMillan stock for Ruger Hawkeye African .375 Ruger

    Good afternoon, I'm hoping you all can point me in the right direction on this. I have a Ruger Hawkeye African in .375 Ruger (older model - no brake) and I would like to replace the wood stock with a synthetic (looking at a moose hunt in the next couple years). I see that HS Precision makes a...

    Large pistol primers available (CCI AND Federal) ONLY $300 per 1K! No Hazmat fee $169.95 for a box of 20. A little too high for me. Might be considered gouging. : )

    Large pistol primers available (CCI AND Federal) ONLY $300 per 1K! No Hazmat fee

    I was at a gun shop in Grand Rapids last week and I kid you not, they had CCI .22 Minimag, 100 round packs on the shelf for $39.95 per pack. Crazy times for sure.

    GemPro 250 drift

    I have noticed on mine that if I don't put the powder pan back on the scale soon after I dump it I will get drift. Once I dump the powder pan I put it back on the scale within a few seconds. My gempro stays consistent if I do that.

    Cabelas Intrepid HD rifle scope by Vortex reviews?

    I looked at one the other day at Cabela's. It was really clear and bright and I liked the reticle. I would have bought it but Kenton doesn't make a turret for that model.

    VX3i 4.5 - 14 x 40 CDS

    I went to Cabela's yesterday and looked at several scopes. They all seemed to have really clear glass but a couple were quite large and heavy. The VX5 HD was a really nice scope and the sight picture was pleasing to my eye. I just wish it had a little more magnification but it will work.

    VX3i 4.5 - 14 x 40 CDS

    Hello all, I'm shopping for a scope to put on my new deer/antelope rifle. The VX3i can be had for around $500 which seems like a pretty good value. I like the CDS and I already have 2 of the older VX 3 4.5 -14 on other rifles. I have budgeted $800 for s new scope. Does anyone have any other...

    Questions - 6.5 Creedmoor build

    I like the weight of my Weatherby Accumark 30-06 (my normal meat gun) and that runs about 7 & 3/4 pounds (without the scope). I would like to keep it in that area if I could.

    Questions - 6.5 Creedmoor build

    I appreciate all the replies. Well I went ahead and met with the smith and we ordered a Kreiger #4 contour and we will decide on the final length later. Does this contour sound good? I need to decide on a stock next. I would love to have a McMillan but the budget will probably dictate a BC...

    Questions - 6.5 Creedmoor build

    Thanks Tony. On a side note the barrel contour will depend on the manufacturer correct? I mean a #4 contour may vary between Shilen, Bartlien, etc. ??

    Questions - 6.5 Creedmoor build

    Good afternoon, I am considering making a visit to the local gunsmith to discuss having him build me a 6.5 creedmoor off a Remington 700 BDL in 22-250 that I had picked up on my last trip out west. I have a couple of questions and I was hoping you could point me in the right direction...

    Thanks for the offer Pyro. After reading the good comments about the J34 I went ahead and ordered one a couple of nights ago. The brown truck is supposed to be here on Wednesday. Thanks everyone for the help on this. Mike
