    Leupold Reticle Recommendations

    I have the Impact-29 on mine and I really love it!! I'd much rather hold than dial most of the time.

    Ca approved bullets?

    Can you cite anything to substantiate that? I'm actually really curious about this, and not trying to be combative or start anything here. My LEO relative and I were discussing this very issue recently, and I think I found some evidence to the contrary...

    SOLD/EXPIRED .308 Win brass - 545 pieces

    Hi everyone! I have 545 pieces of .308 that I've been hanging on to for a possible project, but since components are in such high demand now, I thought I'd offer it up for sale in case any of my fellow reloaders are trying to get started, etc. It is all range pickups, so it's probably...

    Shipping to California

    I would like to apologize. I'm sorry because I may have overstated it; 'lazy' is probably too strong of an adjective. I should have written more clearly. I should also clarify that I deplore Ca and would have moved to a free state a long time ago if were not for certain ties keeping me here. I...

    Shipping to California

    I guess I understand the fear, but it's just lazy on their part not to take a couple minutes to verify the regs.

    Light Mountain Rifle Caliber

    I'd vote for the 7-08 since you can load a bit heavier if necessary.

    What's on your stores' shelves for ammo and reloading supplies?

    Emptier than the Staked Plains of West Texas.

    Virtually none available here either. I just bought a single box of 209s and that was the last box in the store!

    Starting from scratch - First Lite or Kuiu?

    I'm a big Kuiu fan... living 45 minutes away from the store has put a serious dent in my wallet!!

    #1 shooting tip

    Of all the fundamentals (which of course are all important to master), the #1 factor for ME is breath control. When I really understood shooting on the respiratory pause, my groups improved significantly. If you're a new shooter, google "shooting on the respiratory pause" and read up.

    Best way to pull bullets without damaging them?

    Another vote for the RCBS collet puller. I just pulled 30 rounds without putting a single mark on any of the bullets.

    Gun powder help 77gr Sierra MatchKing.

    My 24" bull barrel AR LOVES 24.0 of RL-15 under a 77 SMK. I know several others have had success w/that recipe as well.

    Favorite .223 Rem Prairie dog loads?

    Ok, this probably isn't your typical prairie dog bullet - but my most accurate .223 load BY FAR is 24.0 gr of RL-15 under a 77gr. SMK. Cloverleafs out of my 1-8 24" bull barrel everytime.
