    New build - 6.5-06AI

    Why not base your round on Lapua 30’06 brass? Necking down will create a nice solid false shoulder for fireforming? Your gunsmith/reamer maker should know how to size the neck. Is mag length the driver for max throat length?

    Vortex vs Meopta

    I picked up both in the end for two different rifles. So, I’ll have a couple others to sell off.

    New to forum... Already need help with base choice for new rifle and scope...

    Simple. TPS Products for high end. Warne for pretty darn good. I like their QD mounts.

    270 ocw test

    I feel your pain. I’m thick with primers, but that won’t last for much longer.....someday they have to become in stock...

    270 ocw test

    I would start by asking....Do you know where the other 2 holes are for group #1? Also, for a hunting load, I start at 0.030” off the lands. Also, quick “pro tip” I load 5 of the middle load for a 2 shot zero.....to get you close enough to not loose shots off paper. Are you shooting mixed...

    Vortex vs Meopta

    27.3oz is heavy for a long range hunting scope? I get that 0-300 yards that there are a lot of single zero optics at 20oz or less. When I think about a scope with reliable turrets, hunting appropirate glass and reticle, it seems like all those are 25oz through 32 oz. What am I missing? I’m...

    Vortex vs Meopta

    I definitely looked at the Athlon and it is a close contender. It seems quite similar to the Vortex. I wish I had both to look at side by side.....to really know.

    21st Century Concentricity Tool

    Any thoughts on this? It it a good tool? Easy to get repeatable measurements on? I’m hoping to step up from my rcbs Case Master. The only negative is that the RCBS will tell me neck thickness as well as neck thickness variation. I could get another tool for that, I guess.

    MEC MARKSMAN ?

    i have a MEC. It was between the MEC and the Rockchucker. I was happy I bought the MEC. I run the Hornady LNL conversion. The Ultimate Reloader guy has a nice press shootout.

    Vortex vs Meopta

    This is hilarious. First, I was hoping to hear more from folks who have had both in front of their eye. Not sure I have heard that. I have good experience with the Vortex 5-25x and I really like it. I have no experience with the Meopta, but I really like the reticle and many sing the praises...
