    Tikka action wrench or vise

    So could one clamp a tikka action in a proper bench vise instead of using and action wrench? I would think I could get a good grip on the flat sided action in my vise with a couple sheets of paper or thin aluminum plates. What is the best way to twist off a tikka barrel and torque on a new...

    Dope cards

    So I have been wanting to put together some dope cards for my rifles, I have a Kestrel 5700 and can imagine it is a little slow to get a solution in a hunting scenario. I’m wondering how close a guy could get with a handful of pre printed cards and shuffle through them depending on conditions...

    Virgin Brass Prep

    I’ve got 200 PCs of SRP 6.5 creed Lapua bass on the way. Until now I’ve only been loading fired brass from factory Hornady ammo. How do you prep virgin brass so it’s ready to go? Is the 1st firing more or less burning components so you can get to real load development? Equipment I have...

    How/where do you carry Javelin Bipod

    I got a javelin bipod this summer and really like it. How and where are you guys carrying the bipod so you can get to it quickly but it is also out of the way. They make a few carriers and I think the minimalist Red Kettle one looks best, but I don’t think I want to carry it on my belt...

    NXS 2.5-10 tracking issues?

    I have an NXS 2.5-10x42 compact MOA that I mounted on a rifle and have only shot a couple of times, but tonight I noticed something weird with the vertical tracking. I have zeroed and set the zero stop, and verified dope and dialed around quite a bit out to 520yds and nothing seems out of...

    Bolt handle contacting stock

    I had a tikka bedded into an Axial precision stock and then added the Lumley Ti/Carbon bolt handle/knob and there is some slight contact in the bolt handle cut out. It shoots well but it does make a thud when dry firing and I was thinking it could affect the bolt position when it’s locked up...

    I have a Maven RS.1 with the SHR reticle I would like to trade for the MOA reticle. Scope is in very good shape, it was mounted in lapped talley rings, I don’t think there are any ring marks, but I can take it out and take pictures if someone is interested in a trade. Only taken on one truck...

    7/16x28 muzzle breaks - Kimber rifles

    I just had a kimber Montana rebored to 338 Federal and it thumps pretty good. I’d like to get a break to use for practice and load work ups. Does anybody make a break beside the kimber that has 7/16x28 threads? I could get the kimber but then I’d still have to pay to have it machined out to...

    I would like to swap my maven RS.2 scope with duplex reticle for one with the SHR reticle. It was mounted but never taken afield so good condition but has a slight mark from mounting in some tally LW rings. No box but it has the neoprene cover. Thanks, Chase Sent from my iPhone using...

    338 Federal loads

    I just bought a kimber Montana in 7mm-08 with 22” barrel that I’m going to send off to JES to be rebored to 338 Federal. With a Maven RS.2 in Talley LWs it might come out under 6lbs. I think the SHR reticle will have useful holdover subtensions with the 338 and will make a good scope for a 300yd...
