    Best Soft Case for everyday travel

    Check out Armageddon Gear. I have several of their soft cases ranging from their carbine cases for AR’s and lever guns to their precision rifle case for my long range hunting rifles. Their stuff is built well and built in America. https://www.armageddongear.com/Gun-Cases

    Optics for the new bang stick...

    I believe the 3.6-18x44 model, which is what I have, weighs in around 26oz. The glass is good but the main thing is that it’s built like a tank. Everything about it is robust and feels like it will last forever. I’m a huge fan of the elevation turret on the Mk5 line as well.

    Neature walk

    Really? Ornstein is a frikin legend, man! Those of us who grew up in the world of competitive, expressive canoe know that he was truly an unstoppable force. My sister used to have a poster of him on her bedroom wall when we were kids. It was right next to the Scott Baio poster.

    Optics for the new bang stick...

    The mark 5 does not even compare to anything in the vx line. As someone stated above, more robust and reliable. VX 5 and VX 6 dials feel and react like junk compared to the mark 5. If it’s in your budget, I’d go mark 5 over vx 5 or 6 any day. Nightforce nx8 line is another relatively lightweight...

    The perfect tripod

    Today it got really weird and I’ve been contemplating all afternoon what I should do so here goes. This morning I put an ad in the classifieds looking for a RRS Anvil 30. I got a pm from a guy (1st screen shot) so I texted him and then he replied with word for word copy/paste from an old...

    The perfect tripod

    I’ve been ooooing and awwwing over RRS and 2 Vets tripods all weekend. They both have some big ol beefy stuff. I’ll probably end up with something from one of the companies before long. Lots of reviews put 2 vets ahead of RRS except for the China import aspect. It’s a shame!

    The perfect tripod

    I hear you guys on the RRS setups but every time I look for them, they’re sold out. Are their heads compatible with standard ARCA Swiss plates?

    The perfect tripod

    Has anyone found the perfect tripod? What I’m getting at is, is there a tripod that checks all, or at least most of the boxes? Is it light enough to be used backpack hunting? Is it sturdy enough to shoot off of so you don’t have to carry a bipod too? Is it tall enough to glass standing and or...

    NX 8 2.5-20 Short Action Mounting

    The new hybrids came in yesterday. I got the scope mounted and the highs did the trick. If they made a .55 medium, that would’ve probably been perfect. Thanks to Hawkins for having great CS and getting these out to me ASAP. Hopefully I’ll get time to shoot it this week.

    One-Eyed Hound

    I’ve raised, trained and worked blood trailing dogs for catching wounded animals for 16-18 yrs. One of my leopard dogs lost an eye fighting a pretty bad deer one season. I’m not really sure how it happened but I know both eyes worked when I turned him out. He trailed and caught the wounded deer...

    NX 8 2.5-20 Short Action Mounting

    Hawkins shipped my new, high, hybrids today so I’ll update and end this thread next week when I get it all set up. Going back through this thread I couldn’t help but notice that a lot of guys aren’t mounting the hybrids correctly. The undersides of the bases are labeled front and back but they...

    NX 8 2.5-20 Short Action Mounting

    I appreciate the offer but I heard from Hawkins today. They are building me a set of high hybrids this week.

    NX 8 2.5-20 Short Action Mounting

    I’d have to look at the specs but it seems like the shank on my Bartlein #4 is heavier then that Proof and this is where the objective is hitting. Thanks for the pics guys. Give me confidence that when the highs arrive, they will work.
