    Wheeler FAT wrench digital or analog????

    I've used the Wheeler analog, an older Sears analog inch pound and Fix-It Sticks. Prefer the Fix It Sticks hands down. After 11 Scope installs, last 4 with the Sticks, using the Fix It Sticks have been true and IMHO are much easier. Quick, problem free and dead on. Knock On Wood So Far. So I'll...

    Impact of bayonet-style chronograph on group size

    Thanks for the pics and for your advise. I see the difference, I'm using a Harris bipod and that jacks up the setup because it's more congested on my setup than yours. Looks like you have maybe an Atlas. I'll keep working with it. I can move it back on the rail, which I have two rails end to...

    Impact of bayonet-style chronograph on group size

    New Texas Suppressor Bill Signed by Gov. Abbott

    Being from Texas I have been following this a little. From what I have heard, which that and $2 get you a small coffee at some places, Texas lawmakers looked at the other states and made their legislation to avoid what had been knocked down. The real test is when it goes to courts and the legal...

    Powder for 300 wsm

    I use H4831SC on my 185 thru 215 Berger freedom seeds. Only powder I ever tried, worked so great from the get go never had a reason to switch. Great performance as well as temp insensitivity. Just bought 5 lbs from the Hodgdon direct site. Had been trying for a month or so. Kept missing out...

    H4831SC if you can find it. Used it on 185-215 and it has been outstanding both in accuracy, repeatability, velocities and stable at temps from 0 to 105 F.
