    Wheres all the powder

    I was just passing through Locke, NY on vacation. Went into a small gun shop called Franklin Shooting Supplies (315-497-0893) and thought I would ask about powder. I bought 2 pounds of H1000 and 2 pounds of Varget and they acted like I was some kind of madman for being so happy about finding...

    Riddle me this? Ballistic calc vs reality mismatch...

    Have you tried tinkering with the scope height input?

    Which pack?

    This past year I switched to the Mystery Ranch Marshall and I'm super happy with it. Huge payload capacity, very adjustable, removable day pack, meat shelf... it's a workhorse.

    Bipod broke my stock!!! Ever seen this?

    You’ve missed the point. Nowhere did the printed material state that a bipod is not recommended.

    Bipod broke my stock!!! Ever seen this?

    OP stated that it was not advertised or stated in specifications that a bipod is not acceptable. It was only in retrospect, when he called about the failure, that they told him verbally that a bipod is not advised. My understanding is that he had no idea.

    Explanation anyone?

    When I make 6.5-06 out of 25-06, I use my Dremel tool to grind away the 25 portion of the head stamp so I can keep them straight.

    Shoulder surgery...when we’re you able to shoot again?

    In January of this year I had a repair of a complete tear of the supraspinatus along with repair of a "SLAP" tear (superior labrum anterior posterior), tedonesis of long head biceps tendon, and ground down bone spurs. For four months, it was passive range of motion, no lifting anything heavier...

    Virgin brass, or once fired!

    dxlbaile, et al: You're right, this really has me thinking about seating depth on my reloads. I think I'll try moving seating depth out by the amount of headspace in new brass as a starting point. Tell me if you agree, but this is probably much less an issue, if an issue at all, with belted...

    270wsm vs 30-06 vs 280ai

    I'm curious Canhunter35, what was the final diagnosis with that 2-mile elk? Did the bullet fail to penetrate? Did it pencil through? Just not a hit to the vitals? Also, do you know the 30-06 load; bullet and velocity?

    Comfortable shooting magnum caliber

    You can fire factory 280 Rem rounds in a 280 AI and save the now fire-formed brass for when you start reloading. The 280 Rem is already a really nice cartridge with fine ballistics and manageable recoil. I really like the 140 grain Federal Fusion.

    Thanks guys, I just picked up an 8-pounder of RL26 at Midsouth. I already had 2 pounds each of H1000 and Varget on the way. Things are looking up!

    6.5-06 Retumbo Quickload request or info

    Custom '98 Mauser 6.5-06, 26" barrel of unknown heritage, really nice piece of fiddleback walnut. I love this rifle with 125 Nosler partitions. .5" at 100 yards, kills like a howitzer at 400 yards.

    Scope that won't break on 300 win mag

    I'm not sure how strapping a rifle to a lead sled is going to impart more stress on a scope. On the stock and on the recoil lug, sure. The scope (and mounting system) only receives stresses from the acceleration/deceleration of the receiver, which will be less on a lead sled. What am I missing?
