    Minuteshaver started a thread recoil in Single Shot Guns
    for a person who tops out at savage axis in .223 and a Winchester 94ae in 44 magnum, using hornady xtp factory loads, is it possible to keep the same overall handling and recoil levels with a single shot rifle?

    Thing is, a savage axis costs 300 out the door, this costs about 176 msrp for gun 80-100 for a green mountain rifle barrel in desired caliber 100 for the rifle barrel to get chambered... it adds up, but in the end, you would avoid using...

    It gives an idea on what I can do on my own, but the choice is still either do my own jury rigging or go on an easter egg hunt.

    for the amount of money the young man is willing to spend, he should really reconsider what he wants to do with the rifle. A rifle is the personal thing for us to decide on, and as advice or recommendation was sought, heres mine. The ruger...

    they have more life to them then a traditional ar stock configuration. those lines are comforting. its like kicking back with a nice scotch and thinking of perhaps the first brunette you felt up. the standard ar configuration is more like going...

    that's one thing I don't like, so much **** tossed on them. not exactly a "rifle mans rifle" if you need to have 3 or 4 back up sight systems on a gun, that's its basically useless for most things a rifle man needs.

    the red dot is not for everyone you realize. A lot of people with certain eye conditions cannot use them because they cannot account for any possible canting with the red dot. nothing like having a fancy red dot lined up on a tin can at 40 yards,...

    I was hoping that a single stack ar 223 magazine actually existed, I have finally decided to do something good for savage rifle users. And I take it a 5 round single stack .308 magazine doesn't exist either..

    Even starline on their home page says to clean and check for things like that, and they also , starline, recommend a full length resize to make sure any damage to the case mouth is fixed before trying to load any factory new case.

    and every plan I have seen for a sound box has always called for a lot of padding in them. sometimes two layers of standard house insulation material.

    that's all a sound box does, direct the sound. so if the linear brake/compensator is good to go why would a pringles can with a little bit of foam in it be bad?

    a good bolt action rifle doesn't have to cost thousands. It doesn't even have to cost 300$. the average savage axis out of the box at 100 yards can stay inside an 1inch from a rest. I did that myself with 3 or 4 different factory loads with a...

    A lot of issue comes from the term subsonic, most people assume that subsonic is either sound report or bullet velocity. I guess I should have simply asked if the market has interest in a device that will allow LOW CHAMBER PRESSURE AMMUNITION to...

    hey I did mean the hand held press in that linked ad. Seen to many people claiming they use it to full length resize 300 win mag and 375 Holland and Holland, it should be ok for a bit of stress with a copper jacket. as for the .25 caliber air...
