Re: Got drawn for Whitetail, need to buy a deer rifle. Model & caliber suggestions?

Agreed that it's heavy. I'm not worried about a few pounds though, I'm in a lot better shape than that. I backpack with much heavier load than I'll be carrying on this hunt.

Re: Got drawn for Whitetail, need to buy a deer rifle. Model & caliber suggestions?

I actually picked it up mainly for the ammo price, and the option to practice more with a bolt gun. I'm new to more precision shooting, everything else I own is semi auto. I picked up an HMR. Yes it's heavy, but so far it's been a great shooter. I'm run this this year, and have the excuse to buy ano...

Re: Silencerco summer promotion estimated 7+ months to ship free products

Congrats! Did you file as trust or individual? I was able to finally pick up my Omega 300 this past week from NFA jail. It was pretty much 11 months to the day from check cashed to Form 4 approval. 9/11/18 to 8/12/19. My free Octane had the check cashed on 7/8/19 so we'll see how long that one takes.

Re: Remington 700 receiver block, trouble indexing ASR brake

I may be using the wrong term. I'm using the washers that were included with the ASR brake. These were in my Saker box. I'm running one of these on a Tavor as well, but did not have this timing issue. Part of it is the longer barrel and the perceived inability to torque on the end of it without conc...

Remington 700 receiver block, trouble indexing ASR brake

Hey guys. I'm admittedly new to bolt action rifles, but not rifles in general. I'm having a heck of a Time indexing an ASR brake on a Bugera HMR rifle. The Bergara is a Remington 700 pattern receiver. I've gone through my shims stack and have it close, but can't seem to hold the barrel well enough t...

Re: Got drawn for Whitetail, need to buy a deer rifle. Model & caliber suggestions?

Thanks guys. I've heard the same advice about Remington multiple times now, a bummer that that is where the company has gone. I've not handled a howa, but I was impressed by the bergara and tikka. Any reason not to buy 300wm? Feels like that covers all the bases. I don't have any other bolt guns, so...

Re: Stuff you've melted to your suppressor (and how to get it off?)

So follow up to this, got the can hot (2 mags), and scraped it off with a chunk of cardboard ammo box. Stuck to the box better than the metal and is nearly all gone.

Re: cowtown range

Where do I find the info on the 300-yard days at Ben Avery? For the Wednesday night steel events at Cowtown do you need a membership?
