    I have no ring slippage on any of the Burris signature rings and bases I have installed on any of my rifles. In fact the rings that came with my Sako 75 have the same inserts as the Burris rings. That scope has never shifted or needed adjustments...

    I must be the odd man out. My deer rifle is a Sako 75 Hunter with the detachable mag. Heavy rifle and I had to have the stock shortened and a recoil pad installed. It's a '06 and my handloads easily shoot less than a inch at 100 yds. I use the 165...

    Only thing I didn't like on my 40x single shot was the very high comb on the stock. Some years back I bought 3-4 ex military single shot 40 stocks. Picked the best one and scraped ( have some wood workers scrapers you rub on the edges of the...

    The model 14 was really a genuine match revolver and I knew an old bullseye shooter who had multiple targets with the centers shot out. The old bullseye load of 2.7 grains and a 148 grain wadcutter was all he ever fired in his 14. I must admit I...

    You may or may not have cleaned out all of the old wd-4o or gunk in the bolt. Check the back end of the firing pin for burrs caused by getting hit by the firing pin. And sometimes the claw on the extractor may need some work. Look to see if it has...
