    4dof zero angle, sighting in, 2 different loads

    cool. thanks for answering my question. My goal with the question is/was to hopefully follow what you are saying. Use the load my gun likes, the ELDM when it matters, and use the ELDX load for the practice I will always need. By being able to start over with the ELDX with zero angle technique to...

    4dof zero angle, sighting in, 2 different loads

    I feel like these are basic questions, and i am overthinking things, but I need a little help. 300prc. I have and use both the hornady 4dof phone app as well as a kestrel 5700 w 4dof. Using both Hornady ELDM and ELDX loads. Factory only right now, not reloading. I do have the 2 loads saved as...

    7SAUM Build - who would you call first?

    this is essentially the build I am/was considering. Talked to Dallas, among others. More than a couple have somewhat steered me away from the chassis part of it, toward a traditional stock. Cold, rattles, very thick when folded and therefore some packing issues, having to store the mag or keep...

    7mm rem mag build

    This is a mountain hiking gun. So lighter is better within reason. 7.5-ish or less without glass would be ideal.

    7mm rem mag build

    I have considered the 308. The Sig Cross looks like a nice gun. I sure I may get some hate for this, but I don't think that fits the bill as the long-range fun gun I am wanting. I think I would be disappointed in myself for that one at some point. I would definitely fit the small package part.

    7mm rem mag build

    I REALLY like those recommendations. Wasn't sure about the short pull vs regular buttstock, so thanks for that info as well. 7wsm rather than 300wsm, knowing that I have a suppressor to lessen the kick?

    7mm rem mag build

    great question...long range is relative, and unknown at the moment. I can shoot a bow to 100y, but I won't shoot an animal over 45-50, in good conditions. Deer, less than that. I would like to shoot rocks to 1000, but I won't shoot an animal at a longer range than I feel it will drop because my...

    7mm rem mag build

    y'all have definitely convinced me to stay away from the 20" 7mmRM. Since I want a short barrel, I have been looking a bit more at the short actions, and kinda thinking 300's. 300wsm, 300saum, 300rcm. There is little out there about the 300rcm, which worries me for loads. Remember, recoil is...

    7mm rem mag build

    Thanks very much for that. I absolutely agree that we all look for validation of our original thought, but would disagree I am stuck on a 7mmRM and disregarding other options. In fact, that couldn’t be further from the truth! If I believed what a few gunsmiths told me, I never would have posted...

    7mm rem mag build

    Thanks for the reply. I considered the 22" option with the removable supressor, which is why I settled on the trash panda. As you said, I have no problem lugging a long shotgun around (I have an 870). But if I am reading these posts correctly, I would not win awards for considering a 22" as...

    7mm rem mag build

    I have definitely considered that gun. I like the looks and function. I have considered waiting for the next caliber offerings in it as well, but I can't find that they are showing their hand on what those offerings might be.

    7mm rem mag build

    I guess I'm not sure what "healthy discussion" means. I have read every post. Multiple times. I am not smart enough in this realm to have a comeback for everything. And you know what they say about opinions...I don't disagree with any opinion, even if I don't necessarily agree. Yes, I want the...

    7mm rem mag build

    Q has no lower limits, I believe, and others that do are 20" for a 7mmRM

    7mm rem mag build

    Thanks all for the replies! Couple of thoughts. I want one gun. Yes I want it to be a gun capable of shooting an elk or bear down range, even going north of the border to hunt big game. And if I see a(nother) wolf inside of this zipcode.. Don't want a 308, don't "need" a 300wm. Want more than...

    7mm rem mag build

    Ever overthink things until you get a headache?? I need a little mental relief, please. Building-ish a 7mm rem mag hunting rifle. Hiking, lightweight, covering miles. Actually want to put it in my pack for wolves when I am bow hunting. Long range if and when I feel comfortable. Mostly a...
