One minute he was working in front of me and in an instant he was standing there topless ( no shirt or apron ) and lots of red mar...

Re: Orderd a new lathe!! Updated with pics!

Nice looking lathe you have. How much does it and the stand weigh? I am moving to WA. State and buying a house trailer and i know weight is going to be a factor in deciding what to buy. Stay safe. :D

30 ARX

I have been reading about the 30 ARX. It is a 6.5 Grendel case necked up to .30 Cal. Should be nice in a T/C Encore or handy rifle. Have any of you tried this one out yet and what are tour thoughts?

Re: accuracy issues with 338 suppressor

Is the torque on the action screws correct? Is the stock pillar beaded? If so you might want to check to make sure the recoil hasn't broken them loose, also check the recoil lug area, I always use a beveled and heavy duty rcoil lug that is ground flat. Wind chaser.

Re: .223/5.56 What gives the best stopping power.

Unless you score a CNS shot like I mentioned, the difference in a 55gr and 75 gr will not be a dramatic comparison. It depends on the bullet. A 55gr HP bullet will have much less penetration that a 70+gr HP, and if the bullet doesn't go deep enough to get to vital tissue it can't work well. Any of ...
