    Everyone here has made good points to back up their opinions and kept it civil which is what makes a good discussion. My take on it is I do not like it but know it is close to impossible to avoid communist china made goods. That being the case I...

    Like bore scopes they are very cool. Can be a great tool but you see things (that until you saw them) that never were a problem before. I have a bore scope but I have long since learned that some people can't be allowed to look through them.

    I don't agree on the erosion but I do agree it can cause problems. I have borescoped some 22 rifles used by various teams that had well over 100K through them. This was will LR ammo but no erosion in the throat. I did see erosion part way down...

    Since you already have a 44 Mag you are covered for deer The 357 will get you nothing over the 44. Get a smoothbore barrel for your 500 and a 223 for coyotes, foxes, whistlepigs, squirrels, rabbits, coons, and possums. An over 35 Cal. deer gun...

    I disagree. This improvement in accuracy is exactly what the sport is about. It is the test bed and development platform for rifles, ammo and shooting techniques. The M-21, M-24 and M110 have direct linage back to techniques developed for this type...

    Service Rifle requires 4 1/2 pound triggers. The M1's and M-14's are all two stage triggers. Most of the AR shooters use two stage also. Set the first stage to about 3 pounds so the second is just 1 1/2 more. Way easier than pulling 4 1/2 at...

    Sounds good in theory but I am not sure it really works that way. This is based on installing a large number of laminated stocks on M-14's and M1A's in the late 80's and 90's. Fajens and Bishops mostly but if I remember correctly Rutland was the...
