    Do yo lu trim below spec to normalize a batch.

    For that type of shooting, I trim to .001 under max length.

    Controversial Question! Good Shooter vs. Bad Shooter

    You'll shoot more if you really enjoy shooting the gun in your hand. A lot of gun owners have more than one pistol, some of them have dozens. Most of them would be better served by reducing their collection, and using the money to buy ammo for more practice. I found that I became a better...

    Caliber of the day......223 (2/23/24) picture thread.

    223 is by far my favorite caliber. From last weekend, the R700 with a 223 Remage barrel.

    Why are Hornady bullets available when Sierra are not?

    I don't have an answer as to why, but I have found that in most cases, Sierra makes a better bullet than Hornady. Is this purely for target shooting or hunting as well?

    Rebarreling a Remington 700

    Bartlein, Hawk Hill, Krieger, and Broughton have been very good in my personal experience. I have a Wilson on a 223 and it shoots well, just not at the same level as the others. For gunsmithing, I use Preece Precision as he is close enough that I can drop the gun off...

    Low profile auto reset rifle target

    It uses a cam mechanism, and limit switches similar to your setup. I have added a transmitter and receiver from an RC toy to another one for resetting.

    Powder recommendations

    Bullet choice makes a bigger difference than powder choice in a 223. A quality bullet can go a long way toward small groups. AA2230, TAC and H335 are good all purpose powders, especially if you are just dropping charges from a powder measure. H4895 and 8208XBR are excellent extruded powders...

    Low profile auto reset rifle target

    That's pretty cool. Here is a 22LR resetting target that the local engineering students and I put together Each target has a switch so when they all fall down, the motor starts and reset the targets.

    I had to remove one years ago to swap the handguard. A sharp drill in the drill press removed enough weld that turning over the barrel and giving it a smack on the backside of the pin, made it fall right out.

    Vetterli centerfire conversion

    That is nice. Proving that a 140 year old rifle and an AR upper can exist in the same picture 😎

    Alright, I think I am ready to try out a progressive press

    I have had two friends that did the same. One came over to the house once while I was teaching someone to use my 550B. He saw us load 100 rounds without a hiccup, went home and bought a 650.

    Is Whether Or Not You Can Legally Carry The Deciding Factor On Where You Go?

    Yes, I consider where I travel or visit based on the location being 2A friendly. I carry as often as I can, wherever I can.

    9mm target load

    The key to an accurate load is a good bullet. The Hornady HAP and Precision Delta HP are accurate choices. Ramshot Silhouette with a 124 HP from Precision Delta have shot well for me, but N320 and WSF have yielded good results as well.

    What .308 BA would you buy if you had a $2000 budget for gun and optic?

    Tikka or build something on an Aero Solus action exactly the way I want. With the prefit barrels available, you could put it together at home.

    Another flavor

    More shooting today. Still struggling with getting the trigger consistent. I may need to give up and put a good aftermarket on it. Three 5-shot groups with 62 grain bullets that were pull downs.

    Hodgdon Superformance (powder)

    With two books giving starting data around 60 grains, this is where I would start.
