    Barrett Fieldcraft???

    Is this just a thinly veiled humble brag thread? That said, you can't go wrong with either one.

    .223 for bear, deer, elk and moose.

    I just think this is @Formidilosus every time I get a notification that there's activity on this thread

    .223 for bear, deer, elk and moose.

    Posted in the Mini 223 and 6.5G build thread too, but thought you guys might think this is relevant (being Tikka territory and all) FYI it looks like Brownells has the 223 Mini Action (barreled action) on sale for $389 (home page says "today only.") Brownells Barreled Mini Action I also got an...

    Lightweight Howa Mini Builds - .223 Rem & 6.5 Grendel

    FYI it looks like Brownells has the 223 Mini Action (barreled action) on sale for $389 (home page says "today only.") Brownells Barreled Mini Action I also got an email from Stocky's yesterday with their carbon fiber blems on sale for $299. Very tempting--after reading and RE-reading the .223...

    Christensen ridge line

    My buddy owns 2 or 3 Ridgelines (26, 28, and 30 Nosler) and they're all sub-MOA shooters. I've owned a 6.5 PRC Mesa that was a sub-MOA gun with factory 143gr, currently own a Ridgeline 300 Win Mag that's sub-MOA with my 212gr ELD-X handloads. I also got to shoot a Ridgeline FFT in 6.5...

    Glock Model 40 10mm

    I would think this isn't an Apples to Apples comparison with the amount of the blast that comes out between the front of the cylinder and the breech of the barrel. Just thoughts from a nobody.

    308 factory ammo for elk not named Nosler?

    Careful, the Scenar thread will have you going down another rabbit hole. After following your (mis)adventure in getting your gun set up, the last thing you need is to chase another white rabbit... I say this partly in jest, but the thread is AWESOME, and admittedly forced me to purchase...

    308 factory ammo for elk not named Nosler?

    Check out the Frontline Rejects Hot Cor tests on YouTube. It was a 165gr out of a .308 if I remember correctly, and it was really impressive.

    308 factory ammo for elk not named Nosler?

    Partitions can be finicky in guns due to their construction. Some bullets don't do well when shot over copper fouling from other bullets. Your reticle wouldn't be floating if the 180gr Federals were shooting well. Grab more 180 Federals and go hunt. Wait til next year to start tinkering...

    308 velocities are not hard on bullets. The 180 should do very well--even a 165 would probably do fine. I understand the trepidation, and I usually opt for the premium fodder, but those 180s should work for you no problem as long as you do your part.

    Trophy copper

    Pretty sure they’re still E-tips, but with a cannelure in the OEM bullets they provide Federal.

    It wasn’t Talley - it’s apparently me. Scope won’t stay fixed - Update: fixed. Added to first post

    I'm curious about this, too--I've never seen anything about the Leupold rail being too short in back.

    Leupold 171352 BackCountry cross slot/picatinny rail.

    That's concerning. Make sure the Talleys are snugged down on the receiver, so they're true to the center line, and then put the scope in there again. If it binds, I'd be concerned that you bent your scope tube using the wrong mounts from Leupold.
