    Mild 25-06 Load for Youth

    I Know that the 25-06 is not a long-range cartridge, but I bought my grandson his first centerfire rifle chambered in it to introduce him to reloading and shooting.. he is small in stature for a 12 year old, and I am in the process of measuring and planning on cutting down the factory stock and...

    Muzzle Brake on A-Bolt II 300 WM?

    Muzzle Brake on A-Bolt II 300 WM?

    I came home from a LGS this weekend with a very lightly used Browning A-Bolt II Medallion chambered in 300 Win. Mag. It is almost too pretty to shoot, I have always opted for less fancy, but this one looked sweet and I was looking to buy my first .300 WM... I'm an old geezer(66) and looking to...

    Any Experience With Zastava M808

    I'm going thru a process of reviewing rifles for my entry into longer range shooting/hunting and am trying to find someone who has firsthand experience with Zastava M808 rifles... they appear to be similar to CZ 550 Ultimate hunter rifles without the polish and for a lot less money. I am...
