    Wow, good thing I got a shipment of Lapua Midas Whoopass just before our idiot gunlaw went into effect. Will try to remember the date, but I live near Woodstock, so my memory is long gone. :cool:

    FTR with a bipod looks likely----but the competition is fierce! Use 175 gr MK for the 1K stage, any other bullet won't be stable past 900 yds, unless you have a 30" barrel. Tried 168 gr once and the...

    Way back around 1962, I shot Hipower at Ft Bliss, Tex, and we used to put filter tips from cigarettes in our ears. Hardly useful, but the issue rubber plugs would get desert sand in them. Now I use a...

    I made a Bubba toolpost grinder with a piece of 3/4" thick Unistrut, and electrical tape and a Dremel tool. As long as I take small cuts, it works nicely on my Rockwell lathe.

    I have applied Brownells Oxpho blue with steel wool on barrels, and NO steel is removed. Lead is softer than steel wool, barrel steel is harder than steel wool--end of story. Of course, if some grit...

    Heating of a chambered round in a hot barrel has cost me some high 7s in 1000 yd F matches. Now I don't chamber a round until the target comes up with the marker. Slow pit service! :mad:

    I've used the Brownells tools, but I make sure chips don't go into the barrel. Lots of sulphur oil, and brush/wipe out chips about every ten turns. Slow, but worked nicely on two of my LR rifles,...

    If your rifle isn't shooting like it used to, the first thing I would do is to recrown the barrel. Hot gases can erode the muzzle, and two of my LR target rifles went back to tight groups after I...
