    Sell Zeiss V6 for two 6x OR two 3-9x SWFA?

    The optical quality isn't even comparable. I've even had swfa hd glass and it feels like looking through saran wrap compared to the V6, which I don't consider anything to write home about itself. They are reliable yes, but I find swfa lacking in every other regard. Sent from my Pixel 4a using...

    Christensen Arms or Browning Xbolt?

    I've got a X-Bolt in 300wm with an 8twist. I can load to the lands with 215gr hybrids and still feed from the factory magazine. Not sure exactly which model is. Sent from my Pixel 4a using Tapatalk

    30 Cal 195gr TMK on game

    The Berger tool uses the Miller Stability Formula which is not quite perfect for tipped bullets as you point out. Subtracting the tip will get you closer to the correct answer than leaving it on, but it is still not correct. Unfortunately, the Stability Formula that is used is too simplistic...

    30 Cal 195gr TMK on game

    If someone will post the bullet length, you can run the numbers on Berger's website. I suspect you will have marginal stability at 800' and be fully stabile at 5000'. You can always give them a try since you live in the worse condition. If they shoot at 800' they will be fine at 5000'. Sent...

    How far have you jumped?

    No, I loaded it a good bit short of that based on what I had found. I am going to proceed with load development and see how it goes... I will!

    How far have you jumped?

    So I've had a Sako Classic in 7x64 for a couple of years. Haven't even shot it yet.. I finally picked up some dies. These rifles come with a 1:10" twist barrels. I picked up some 131gr Hammer Hunter Bullets, the heaviest I could stabilize with a 1:10". Loaded 1 road to spec and fired it off...

    Help with new scope selection $600-1000

    For under a 150 yards you don't need to dial. Look at a Swarovski Z3 4-12x50 with a plex reticle for around $820. Excellent low light performance. Lightweight. At that range there's just no need to be adjusting parallax or dialing windage or elevation corrections. KISS. Sent from my Pixel 4a...

    Review - Spartan Precision Bipod - Javelin Long + Jane Long Legs

    I have one. It's pretty nice, especially for the weight. But I'm considering getting the atlas or evo for more stability. Fwiw, I would keep the Javelin either way. Too convenient weight wise to not have in the arsenal. Sent from my Pixel 4a using Tapatalk

    Budget OTC Guided Hunts

    Most of the Aoudad hunts are ok private land in Texas, they can be had in your price range. I believe the only OTC Aoudad hunt you can do is unit 34 in New Mexico. Sent from my Pixel 4a using Tapatalk

    Swaro ring torque

    I have a pile of Z3s that are torqued between 18-24lbs according to my FAT wrench. I personally think the FAT wrenches run a little light. YMMV Sent from my Pixel 4a using Tapatalk

    Share your "Hunting Items I've overspent on with no advantage"

    This. While I really enjoy some of my nice gear, the only value it truly add is making me feel warm and fuzzy inside. My rule is more like 95:5 than 80:20. 95% of the desired result is achieved with 5% of the money I spend on gear.

    How do you stabilize your rifle for Antelope?

    I've only been out west once (Wyoming; Elk). I ended up taking my shot on the side of a mountain using my trekking poles with a Quick-Stix adapter. I am planning a 2021 Wy Antelope hunt and it has me wondering how most people are making their shots. In a lot of the antelope videos I've seen it...

    States where I can start buying preference points for my son

    At least there are a few options here I can get started for him. Maybe another way to go at it.. What about states that have group draws with averaged preference points where I could accumulate and share with him? They'd go half as far, but better than none. Sent from my Pixel 4a using Tapatalk
