    I had good luck with Varget's twin brother, ReL15. I shot great with 60 gr Hornady's but none was as good as TAC, in my rifle anyway.

    murf205 replied to a thread CZ Safeties in Factory Rifles
    David, you are spot on with your description and I would buy a CZ if it was just for me but I have a couple of younger potential shooters and since I tend to be a worry wart when it comes to safety, I want to keep it as non confusing as I can. I am...

    After much deliberation and pondering, I decided to buy a Tikka T3x Lite in 223 with a 1-8 twist. My LGS owner checked with the largest imported of Tikka/Sako's in the US and they had none. So...I will wait. Between the riots, election, and Covid,...

    murf205 replied to a thread CZ Safeties in Factory Rifles
    When I talked with CZ and the man told me that they had changed the operation of the safety, he must have been talking about the model 550. From all I can tell, the 527 is still back to fire and forward for safe. I really like their rifles but that...

    I —probably—could too, but youth shooter might get a bit confused and that is my main concern.

    murf205 started a thread CZ Safeties in Factory Rifles
    I called CZ USA and asked about the safety on their 523 model rifles and the guy I talked to said that they had changed the way they operate some time back. In other words, according to him, they now operate forward to fire and rearward to safe....

    I think you are correct, and who can argue with him. I like the concept of that boolit because of the way it is "thought" to enter the forcing cone but I'm not going to get that started here because it probably needs a whole 'nother thread.

    I have not clocked them but I shot them out of a friends Hi Point carbine and they feed like a charm in it. IIRC the load was 6 grs of Unique. When they hit the cardboard target backer, they sound like someone beating the dust out of a rug with a...

    You can order the mold and specify that it has cavities in whatever diameter you need. Accurate molds states in his instruction for ordering molds, that they will -usually- drop .002 over what you order. In other words +.002, and minus 0. I believe...

    Doc, Tom at Accurate Molds just made this mold and added it to his catalogue. It is an ogival nose w/c and it makes nice clean cut holes in the target. I think it would ventilate just about any critter you stuck it in as well. Mine is a 3 cavity and...

    My son bought a Superior safe and the quality is very obvious. I was over $3K and it was a LOAD in my E-350 1 ton Ford van. IMHO, it is worth every cent and it has 4 Hilti wedge bolts anchoring it to the floor. Crooks don't try to "crack" a safe in...

    No wonder they are more expensive. Do they need to be stress relieved after rifling is finished?

    Good luck Doug, it seems like they are hard to get in touch with by design. Another vote for Manson Reamers. When I bought one from them, Dave Manson answered the phone and answered all my questions and offered advice for a good 20 min. Just like...

    This guy has 6 shell holders for $147.82AU. I noticed that he still has the molds and the shellholders. Supply and demand--maybe but it's still robbery.

    I am pondering a re-barrel of a LA tang safety Ruger 77. It is from around 1978 and the barrel has pits on the outside, of all places, where it looks like someone got blood on it and never wiped it off. It is a 280 Rem and it lacks a LOT to be...

    I'll bet that your Mini groups better with that new gas block too. The way that action hammers a scope-in both directions, forward and rearward- it is not conducive to accuracy. I have seen more than one Mini-14 formerly branded (with some pretty...

    I don't know how reliable the import gages are but the Meyer Gage pins I have are made in the USA and the 2019 catalogue says so. In that catalogue, the price for individual pins in the .061 to .5005 is $3.53 per pin. The shipping is very reasonable...
