Re: Reloading in 2020

I've been reloading since the 1972 Spring semester at SDSU. An IE instructor got me started with loading of 7.62X54R cartridges. Since then the reloading process has changed many times for me. Currently (at last count) I reload 47 different cartridges from 22 Hornet to 50 BMG. 48 years of reloading ...

Re: new website find

I always try for maximum target usage, while most shooters try to shoot the center X out. I've shot 72" groups all shots on target and had fun doing so. Then for some reason I was told to shoot smaller groups - it has taken the FUN out of shooting. Now I have to try to shoot smaller groups. I'd...

Re: new website find

Damn, I now know what I've been doing wrong - shooting at targets 25 to 40 yards away!!!

I should be shooting groups at 5 yards with my Berettas.

(As long as large targets are used. Not the 1/2" diameter adhesive dots I use for 600 yards with my RPR 338LM.)

Re: CCI 35 primers

The only limits on display are area allowed and ambition/knowledge/comfort of staff to put out primers. By my reading the MN Statutes say only 10,000 may be on display. We're only supposed to store 10,000 at home too, in case anyone asks. Sure glad I don't exceed that and the 20 pound powder limita...

Re: Need Tripod Advice

I've been following this Topic with great concern about weight capacity of Tripods. The Tripod from Hogsaddle.com seem to be best but limited to 26 pounds maximum. The Ball mount accessory with Acra-Swiss adapter has a max weight of 44 pounds which means nothing if Tripod is limited to 26 pounds. My...

Re: Who does barrel cutting

I have a hacksaw, a bastard file, and a thread file you can borrow. :exactly:

You would need to post pictures here before, during, and after of your project. :booyah:

RPR 338 Lapua Magnum

Not enough horsepower for the King Of 2-Mile competition. I will take to Alliance for un-official 1000 yard sight-in on 4" clay pigeons. There is a competition in Kansas of 2200 yards = MAYBE. 338 Lapua Magnum is good for 1.5 miles (2640 yards) stretched to 1.75 miles (3080 yards) but not for 2...

RPR 338 Lapua Magnum

Thank you for the rifle - a cartridge I had no intention to shoot but which I now love. I have a Thomson-Center Contender pistol chambered in 444Marlin which I call Big-Bore while shooting 300-350 cast lead projectiles. You can try it if you want something different. A few members have tried it to o...
