    2021 Purple Heart build

    Ok vortex has come aboard again this year. They are willing to donate any crossfire scope. Which they do have a 6-24 but I wasn’t thinking a lower end scope and 6 is getting on the high end for hunting. So I asked if I could upgrade and cover some cost. They are willing to do some deal like that...

    2021 Purple Heart build

    Well Hammer bullets jumped aboard for this project so we will be launch some kind of long heavier pill. They are donating custom load work and ammo. That being said the 7 twist 243 would be able to shoot monos, and big cup core or factory 95gr. It’s very weird here in Michigan as even the...

    2021 Purple Heart build

    I agree I’ve did a 6.5 creed recently. I just have a soft spot for the 243 and almost everyone knows what it is and how it performs. Especially with some 100gr hammers.

    Salmon River Brakes

    So I’ve been build a lot more light weight builds for backpacking in the last few years the problem was they all had round 90 port brakes out of titanium. Now I have a few painkillers on my other larger rifles and fell in love with those but were heavy. Well salmon river delivered. He shipped me...

    2021 Purple Heart build

    That’s why I’m worried about some of the wildcats. Michigan is one of those states that is weird about that stuff. I’ve done a few Michigan only style rifle in the past. And recently so I’m thinking something that can stretch out a bit more. This would be the first time I went with a tried and...

    2021 Purple Heart build

    To be honest that was my original thought but not sure if I should stick with something standard. But I may be in touch as this thing starts to come together.

    2021 Purple Heart build

    Ok guys, so the 350 legend I did last year went good even through the pandemic. So for those who don’t know every year for the past 8-10 years maybe I’ve been putting together a semi custom rifle and donate it to the local SCI with 100 percent proceeds going to send Purple Heart recipients to...

    Talk me out of getting Swarovski EL 10x42’s

    I should have added I would definitely do them together. Only time I bring out my handheld anymore is when I’m shotgun hunting and don’t need anything more. The ability to range with only one piece of equipment is great and you will wish you did it sooner. Also once you load your drops into the...

    Talk me out of getting Swarovski EL 10x42’s

    Yes you should look at something else. Leica. I looked at all of them all before deciding on the Leica. I had the hdb then upgraded to the hdb3000. They are fantastic both in glass and ranging. I feel they have the best glass in the game. Not to mention the range finder is top notch.

    Titanium muzzle brakes sneak peek

    Well was able to fit up the .338 to my Lapua improves today for some testing tomorrow. It’s much shorter than the factory so will be neat to see how it compares.

    Titanium muzzle brakes sneak peek

    All very good points. I believe he also sent me a .338 caliber threaded in 5/8 24. I had planned on trying it a a light .358 Norma mag when the smith was done but I do have a .338 Lapua improved savage 110 stealth I can try it on this week. I could give you a good idea on how it would work...

    Titanium muzzle brakes sneak peek

    I May head back to the range this week and see if I can focus on the difference in blast between the painkiller and this one. I honestly didn’t notice it at all. I noticed my stuff stayed on the table that was a change but maybe i was not paying attention well enough.
