  1. Seems like a super deal!! And the SKS is a durable rifle.
  2. As silly as it may seem 1,000 yards is along way away !!! Most impressive.
  3. Obama as usual takes advantage of a crisis, Has any other scum sucking politician raising their hackles against the ban? Seems not. What ever it takes for the U.S.A to fall into the new world order.
  4. Tacticool is for fools. The SKS is a great rifle,I wish I bought a dozen back in the 1990s when they were selling for $69.00 to $99.00. I would just leave it as is and shoot it. No need to toy with the rifle if it runs.
  5. 338 Lapua is an awesome cartridge.
  6. A classic revolver,,,Sweet.
  7. My friend has a Rem 700 in 338 Lapua with the muzzle brake the muzzle blast is worse than the recoil,not bad at all plus wow 338 lapua seems to be one of those "inherantly" accurate calibers. I would guess punching holes in paper under 100 yards a lesser caliber would save money. but at 1200+ yards the longer barrel life as compared to the 300 magnums might make the 338 lapua a break even caliber. The 300 magnums are an owie caliber and the 338 Lapua a manly caliber? I almost forgot to add I loaded a bunch of 200 Gn Sierra Matchkings in 300 Weatherby mag a couple of years ago and at max recommended charge with H1000 powder, the primers looked great so I didn't measure the cases. My shoulder had a black and blue spot from the recoil though. Seems the H1000 powder is a good choice.
  8. I wonder is the 338 lapua is in the long run cheaper to shoot than the 300 mags due to the longer serviceable barrel life.
  9. Bringing up an old"er" post I have been using the small primer pick up brass and find it easier to prime on my Dillon 550. Seems no matter what I do or parts I replace the small primer setup works almost 100% and the large primer has at time feeding fits.
  10. The New American magazine is great to read I have been reading it since the 1980s I think!! We can thank the EPA but Mexico and China will probably fill the lead orders.
  11. Best to wait and let others work out the bugs.
  12. Last night I bought a set of Warne scope rings to replace a like set of Leupold rings that one broke. The Warnes are made in Oregon and set up real nice.
  13. One of my friends has a Remmington Police Special? in 338 Lapua and I get to it shoot on occasion. I really like the caliber as compared to the 300 mags.
  14. This may age me but when the Mini 14 first came onto the market there was much range talk about if Ruger would make a 308 mini. This SR-762 is better.
  15. What IMO makes a Glock is they are simple and they work. That is a wonderful concept.
  16. It is not about crime ! It is about disarming the populace . I wonder why nobody gets it.
  17. Fix it but don't refinish it . It is is in good shooting shape and if it is like a Win model 12 it will be nice to shoot. Win mod 12 shotguns are cool if you hold the trigger in the firing position it will fire as you pump it.
  18. I saw one last weekend. Deja vu all over again the bottle capper design was used in the early days of reloading. Won't trade the dDllon for one!
  19. I shoot the cheap bulk packs when pistol plinking but higher quality 22s are really higher quality when trying to see what the rifle can do.
  20. I have never shot a SCAR but I have held one and I like the way it feels. Call me a chick it is O.K.
  21. The AR was designed by an aircraft guy. It has AR problems. The biggest whoops with the AR is the change to the carbine length barrel. The change causes an increase in cycling speeds which beats the parts to an earlier death as compared to the 20 inch barrel set up. The beauty of an AR is it is cheap to produce, Easy to fix with minimal if any machine work needed. The AK was designed by a tractor type guy. It has AK problems The FAL has its FAL problems. The M14 has M14 problems etc. I will say that the AR and the AK have had a long in service period which says much .

    Which 9mm Pistol?

    How about a 9mm 1911. There is nothing that is nicer to shoot than a high quality 1911. Costs more but so does a Ferrari.
