Re: Magpul Hunter stock

As others have stated, the dimensions for the Magpul stock will more than likely fail to meet NRA rules.

Re: Magpul Hunter stock

Why risk spending your money and showing up at a match only to be told the stock is illegal? Far too many people waste a lot of time and energy trying to slide by, instead of doing things right the first time. Save yourself a lot of grief and get a proper stock. Better to cry once and live happily e...

Re: Back at it....

24 inch barrels with a muzzle diameter of 0.700 inch work best for me. Other shooters prefer heavier or reverse taper contours. Your best bet is to ask some shooters to let you handle and shoulder their rifles so you can evaluate which barrel contour provides a better balance for you.

Re: Back at it....

The 6.5 X 47 is an excellent caliber choice. Yes, the brass is expensive, but it will last you twice or 3 times as long as other brands, especially if you anneal the case necks after every 4 or 5 firings. The 6.5 was developed specifically for precision shooting with long barrel life and has a prove...

Re: Cleaning Rifles at the Nationals

I found my rifles will fire up to 200+ rounds before cleaning is needed, so I arrive to any big 2 or 3 day match with a clean rifle and don't worry about cleaning the barrel. I do make sure the bolt and action are clean, then properly lubed after every 40 round match.

Re: What is the best action for Silhouette?

Save yourself some bucks and buy a Remington short action (You can buy a new .243 Rem 700 at Walmart for under $400). Then have a competent gunsmith "blueprint" it and pin the recoil lug in place (~$150). Add a Jewell trigger ($220) and you now have an action that will be just as good or better than...

Re: Neck sizing, full length....what?

Better yet, using a Lee collet neck sizer die will minimize work hardening of the sized case necks. I found that by using this die for neck-sizing .260 Remington brass, the cases will go up to 5 reloads before annealing is required. Once annealing is done, a full-length resizing removes any distorti...

Re: Finished Finnish Finnfire... hahaha

Nice job on the rifle and trigger conversion!!! I installed a CG Universal 2-stage trigger on my Finnfire and with the judicious use of 2 tiny drops of super glue in a couple of screw threads to keep sear engagement and over-travel screws set, the rifle shoots better than most standard weight rifles...
