    338 RCM

    Seabeeken, did you get some results with the other powders? I'm getting ready to start reloading for my 338 rcm. I have 185 GMX, and have thought to get a box of 186 Hammers. Have you tried the GMXs? If so, was there any real speed difference between the two?

    Chassis options for Ruger M77 Hawkeye

    Huntsman and Coyote, are either of your rifles a hawkeye? Huntsman, what part of the action would you have to mill? I'm much more open to cutting mags vs actions. Seems that the hawkeye has a canted front bolt (somewhere around 45 deg, but I have not measured it yet), vs. both screws being...

    Chassis options for Ruger M77 Hawkeye

    I have a Ruger M77 Hawkeye in 338 RCM with the current plastic stock. And the stock works fine as is, but I wanted change to a chassis system to make it easier to fit the rifle to me. I need a little more comb height. The challenge is that I have not found anything execpt GRS. Are they the...

    M&P 10 Barrel Swap

    Lots of views... well I did find a 308 bolt that was in stock and NiB coated and reasonably priced, so I'll let everyone know after it comes in and I measure it.

    M&P 10 Barrel Swap

    Hi all. I have an M&P10 in 308 and want to re-barrel it with a DPMS heavy 18" barrel, 1-10 twist, 308 that I have. So, I know that the OD of the bolt lugs from the M&P10 are larger than the ID of the barrel extension nut on the DPMS barrel. Read in a number of places that swapping out the the...

    No Nikon, who’s up

    I too, have a few Nikon pieces, some Leupolds, and a few other odds and ends of optics in my small collection. I've settled on Athlon, Ares Btr to put on anything new. I've even thought of selling my leupold M4 to put towards another pair of the Btrs so I can have the same retical on new builds.

    Thank you for the idea of OnX. I've started to look into that. I think I'll be getting the map for CO.

    .17 WSM

    I have one. I got a heavy barrel one last year for the kids to shoot. I skipped the 22lr and just went with the 17wsm. I replaced the plastic stock with a Boyd's All in one to make adjustment easier on everyone. I also added a BSA 17WSM scope (yep its a cheap scope), but works good enough...

    Deer Hunt - recommendations on how to find out who owns what land

    First hunt in 25 years for me and the first hunt ever for my son, and we drew for unit 104 in CO for deer this year, based on a recommendation of the hunter safety instructor. Well, I did realize that the unit has only 50 acres of public land. So, I've been asking around, and so far all leads...
