    Backpacking hunts - Bring the suppressor or leave it at home?

    If you are hunting in grizz country and subscribe to the dinner bell myth after dropping game….in theory it should help. this is the excuse I’m using because I couldn’t find a better one!

    Looking for positive opinions on OMR rifles

    To be honest. That is the intent. But twice threads were deleted last week when folks were writing negative comments. I was frustrated so took a different approach to open the door for folks to air negative as well with the hope this wouldn’t be deleted like the others. So far so good. My intent...

    Looking for positive opinions on OMR rifles

    that's a bummer buddy, sorry to hear that. Hopefully they will still find a way to make it right, otherwise I guess just move on and try a new smith next time. appreciate you sharing your experience.

    Looking for positive opinions on OMR rifles

    I wouldn’t read too far into this based on last 24hrs of posts, but appreciate your opinion.

    Looking for positive opinions on OMR rifles

    Good morning. I’m interested in getting a package for my tikka from OMR. I’ve heard lots of great things. If folks have some positive stories and results to share that would be great. If there are negative stories I’m open to hear those too but really focused on the positive. Thanks!

    New vortex 4.5-22x50 razor hd lht

    Eurooptic isn’t pre order if you want one quicker. Mine shipped a few hours after they went live on Thursday and is halfway here according to post office. I was very surprised that was the case, but unless it’s an empty box showing up…..

    New vortex 4.5-22x50 razor hd lht

    This is entertaining. I do not own one but follow many forums and have been very intrigued by the 3-15LHTs. I have read nothing bad about them (except they are vortex which is a weak argument). This is roughly the same size and same erector (5x) so I wouldn’t expect it to be too much heavier...

    Action weights (savage/Tikka)

    I believe the answer to your question is no. Not from experience but from what I’ve read. I built a 7wsm off my savage short action. OAL is 2.975”. From what I’ve read for PRC you want to be closer to 3.1”. I’m sure it will Shoot fine but be limiting potential. Folks said same about 7wsm but I...

    Action weights (savage/Tikka)

    Savage short action. 32.4oz with factory lug and barrel nut. Without lug and nut 30.3oz. my research shows tikka about same at that 30oz (but it’s a long/short action). if you are debating I would recommend lean tikka.

    Next build : tikka vs savage storm

    Depends. If you’re patient maybe $100 if you get the superlite.

    Need compact lightweight scope suggestion

    Vortex Optics Razor HD LH Second Focal Plane Riflescopes https://www.amazon.com/dp/B019ZUE18W/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_VTJ6W51V6S1MRKZ2G8FE?psc=1 100% agree. Really like my 3-15. These are awesome scopes and for this price can’t be beat IMO.

    Next build : tikka vs savage storm

    You can buy tikka actions. A few on here from time to time. Usually $400-$500. About same price if you buy factory rifle and get $150 for the stock and barrel. I’d go tikka. Don’t think you’d be disappointed. I concur the ejection issue on savages is rough…and I’ve bought improved extractor...

    Next build : tikka vs savage storm

    I debated the same for a bit. I used a savage action because I had one and being able to swap the bolt head saved some money in buying a mag bolt in the tikka. my savage shoots great so no complaints there. That said, it is no where near as smooth as my tikka and is heavier even though the...
