    9mm ammo cost?

    Before I moved out of CA I reloaded 9mm. I would just wait until some 124 gr bullets were on sale and buy a couple thousand. My load was in the low 4 gr range with W 231 so a pound of powder would last for 15-1600 rounds. With a progressive it was definitely worth it in CA. Now I am not so sure...

    162 ELD-M 7mm-08 Tikka

    CUP vs PSI if you look at the some of the IMR powders they list around 59k psi as well. Not sure why they chose to list differently however. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    162 ELD-M 7mm-08 Tikka

    I've seen the same reviews as well. Living in the desert it is a thought in the back of my mind working up loads. I don't expect Varget/H4350 stability but if it is somewhere on the better side between those and say RL17 I think it might work for me. Especially since the powder charge I am...

    162 ELD-M 7mm-08 Tikka

    I've been working on the same combo in my T3 lite. So far Staball 6.5 seems to have some promise. Hit a pretty good node from 46.9 and 47.8 between 2749 and 2766. Went up as high as 48.4 without pressure in my rifle. Hodgdon data has a max of 47.8. Got it kinda narrowed down at 47.1 grains and...

    Can't get 120 TTSX's to shoot

    I had good luck with BL-C2 and CFE 223 with the 120 ttsx out of my T3. CFE was a little faster (3240 fps) but the BL-C2 had better ES numbers. That said personally I'd probably stick with the 145's if they are shooting well. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Favorite early season pant?

    Another vote for the SKRE Unita. I live in and hunt near the Mojave desert. 90+ degree days are the norm during archery season and even into rifle season at the lower elevations. They are the best I've tried to date. Waist runs a little small but, otherwise they fit well and the breathability is...

    Budget Tripod

    I paid 120 for the sprint pro ez about a year and a half ago. Its held up well for hunting, range/chrono work and the wifes photography hobby. I'm sure it doesn't compare to the top tier ones but, got no real complaints for the price. Probably gonna have to get to get another tripod before...

    I am pretty sure I just took a picture of my VA ID card and uploaded it if you have one. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Guidefitter has some brands that expertvoice does not (and vice versa). Hornady, AGC, rugged ridge bipods, kennetrek off the top of my head. I use both, discounts are pretty similar across the sites though. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    switching up arrows

    I'm shooting the BE rampage 300's at 28.5 carbon to carbon, 125 gr head, 80 gr ethics archery half out, g nock uni bushing, beiter nock and 4 fletch Q2i fusion x-ii 2.1 vanes. They weigh 495'ish total, and fly really well for me (29.5 dl at 70 lbs). Could easily play with the insert to get the...

    Pain in Elbow

    I've been dealing with the tennis elbow for a few weeks now as well and never even thought to put that together. I literally saw my VA doc last month about neck pain on my left side, it's my left elbow as well. Xrays showed mild degenerative disk disease and muscle inflammation. Follow up appt...

    Bow Scale Reading Low

    Just recently got the same scale. When I picked up my bow I watched on their scale(mechanical) pull 73-74. Last chance scale shows 69ish. On my 60 pound bow it reads 56. I just took it with a grain of salt Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    New Mathew's Traverse

    Thanks guys! In all honesty while all the shots felt good I wasnt expecting it to be that tight. Had to walk back and grab my phone for a pic lol. Not sure what the green stuff is either to be honest. I live in the Mojave desert so its definitely a foriegn substance... Sent from my SM-G965U...

    New Mathew's Traverse

    I'm not an expert either. For me it's just trial and error. My last/first bow I was running just a front bar and found the longer the bar (within reason) the less weight I could run and get the same results. Decided to try out a side bar this time and started with the shops recommendation of a...
