    Could you…

    Like it or not. something that I have not seen mentioned here is that as in California and I believe Washington, lead bullets for hunting are going to be banned in your state.

    Ballistic question - I am stumped

    Thank you all who contributed. I have come to realize that there is a lot more to this than punch numbers into an app, spin the dial and you are good to 1760 yards.

    Looking for comments on Leupold Impact-29 reticle

    Excellent, thank you gentlemen, this is exactly the type of info/feedback I was looking for . Now if I could just figure out how to deal with the coyotes that pop up so close that with the scope you can see the ear mites. Rakkikoira

    Looking for comments on Leupold Impact-29 reticle

    I am interested in Leupold VX-5HD. A couple of times now I have been caught with a coyote at 300+ yds, another at 100 yds, and suddenly one at 50+ yds. There is no time for knob twisting. I am wondering if the dots in the field on the Impact-29 for holding off are better the just using the where...

    700 Barrel Removal at Standstill

    Looking at the photo of the the clamp, would there have been less compression of the clamp if the barrel had been clamped end-grain on rather than cross-grain. Look at old factory floors, many were build of end grain blocks that never showed wear from rolling equipment after a hundred years.

    No Serial Number Can I Sell

    "Because it's not on the part of the firearm that is considered the Firearm" ... That brings up a question I have long had. Why is the lower of an AR15, the part that holds the trigger, the stock. the magazine, and the upper thingy considered a firearm and not the part that holds the bolt. the...

    No Serial Number Can I Sell

    The location of the S/N is left side about an inch or so from the back end of the receiver. That is where it is on mine. Forward of that it is stamped "Springfield Armory". Hope that helps.

    No Serial Number Can I Sell

    Here is something to think about. Currently any firearm manufactured before I believe 1898 is considered an antique and not a firearm. It can be bought and sold without the government being involved. On the Krag there is a chart showing manufacture dates floating around. Now because of the...

    50 Cals for Hunting Dangerous Game? Real World Experience? Bullets/Loads?

    Not to be a downer but there is something to consider before purchasing anything in .50 cal. Currently there is a bill, HR 127 of the 117th Congress that: ‘‘(dd)(1) It shall be unlawful for any person to possess ammunition that is 0.50 caliber or greater. ..." That as written will...

    If you have not seen this, you should

    You think that there is no way that that can happen? Look at the Peoples Republic of Kalifornia: 1. You get to purchase one pistol and one long gun per month. 2. You want to buy ammo, nothing over the internet, you must go to licensed ammo dealer, pay a fee, where that run a background check...

    Gun Buy Back

    It has irritated me when I talk to my hunting buddies about the gun laws here in California and all I get is, "I don't care, I don't have an AR. It does not effect me." - We now have to go through a state background check for every purchase of ammo, even .22 LR. No more buying ammo over the...
