    Hog durability question

    I’ll just leave these here for you guys to interpret on your own. There’s a decent chunk of their neck which you can hit and not hit anything vital. But their lungs are huge. Do with that info what you may

    SOLD/EXPIRED 50 Cal Barrett model 99

    This reminds me of when my dad sold one of his tractors to pay medical bills of his friend who got electrocuted by a power line and insurance wouldn’t cover most it of it. Props to you sir for doing this and thank you for bringing up that memory of my father for me.

    Help me pick an action to build off of

    Your comment about the tenon size is why most of the actions listed are 1.1 or 1.12 tenon. And almost all of them have the option for 1.25 shank, or have it standard. Tell me about the cone bolt face though, I have absolutely no idea what difference a cone vs flat bolt face makes.

    Help me pick an action to build off of

    While having an integrated lug isn’t required to make the gun strong enough, it’s certainly a nice enough feature to me to pay extra for. The nice thing with modern guns is overbuilt actions don’t weigh too much, and don’t cost too much more than light duty actions. Something to remember is a...

    Help me pick an action to build off of

    The TL3 would be the only one I’m interested in, and when I was looking at it on their website there was no option for a lapua bolt face or a larger than .700 bolt. I’ve heard great things about bighorn but that action just isn’t as beefy for a lapua improved as the others on the list. If I ever...

    The only action they have that has lapua bolt face is the 787 which starts at $1550 which is pushing juuust past my listed budget. However I’ve added it to the list because it’s close enough to the budget I’ll allow it.

    Must use 30 cal for moose

    Since you said in another comment that you’ve been there done that with a rum, you trying to get more power or less? If more you could go 300 terminator, Allen xpress, 30 raptor, etc. if less then 300 PRC, 30 nosler, or even 30 Gibbs! I’m partial to the 300 terminator, 30 nosler, and the 30...

    Help me pick an action to build off of

    Can you list a specific action? I did a quick browse through their website and didn’t find any actions like I was looking for edit: maybe you meant the HR? Just found that one, looks pretty close to what I want, but it seems like the side port is short, at only 3.5 inches? The terminator is...

    Help me pick an action to build off of

    That's what I was thinking. I used to have a Deviant GA hunter in a smaller caliber and it was definitely the best action I've ever owned. The reason I have the anti X higher on my list, despite deviant having more action options, is the guaranteed headspace. So when I get close to needing a new...

    Help me pick an action to build off of

    Decided I'm going to use stimulus money to get an action to build off of. I've decided I want a 300 terminator, which is basically a 300 lapua improved with a defensive edge throat for those who don't know. I have had a defiance action before and I *really* liked it, and I prefer the bare metal...

    Non-Magnum Primers for Magnums

    The question is probably answered by now but I've used 210's in a win mag with H1000 and it worked fine in the summer but I would get low velocities and high SD in the wintertime. It shot great in the summer but I did it mostly to satisfy curiosity. Moral of the story is they'll work but dont...

    Difference between Nosler Accubond vs Nosler Accubond LR

    You'd be right. AB work better on game, I've never seen an accubond blow up. However the shape of them is close enough that they usually work for practicing without a change in accuracy or big change in POI. Might be a bit different poi but its usually very close when using same loads and only...

    6,5 Wby RPM

    I see. Well, the sportsmans warehouse in ankeny iowa had some last time I was in there (a month ago) While I don't know if its still there, if he ends up in Des Moines for any reason he could check, or check other sportsman's warehouses that are close to him.

    6,5 Wby RPM

    Its not a wildcat, its a new official weatherby round I saw one set at sportsmans warehouse last time I was there, I think it was RCBS, so they make them. Looks like theyre sold out at most places currently. Seeing you live in australia, I can't help you with local sales however if you have an...

    Difference between Nosler Accubond vs Nosler Accubond LR

    Pm me if you’ve got 210’s, I’d probably buy them. But just so you’re aware (in case you hadn’t tried) they group best with .090-.110” of jump. If you don’t give them jump they won’t group well in any gun I’ve tried. Giving them jump “usually” fixes it. But some guns just don’t like some...
