Re: Anybody know where I can find a Savage barrel in 6.5 Creedmoor?

Rug, Best place would be Gunbroker for a used take off Savage barrel, but usually it is someone getting rid of a .308 barrel to try 6.5Creed like you. Other option would be Northland Shooting Supply for a Criterion Savage pre-fit. You can get different contours(ie hunting profile). MidwayUSA.com has...

Re: remington 700 in 223?

DB, What I meant for support was aftermarket addons. For the R700 action, you can get triggers, stocks, detachable mag setups, pre fit barrels, scope rails, and on and on. R788, the aftermarket selection not on the same level. Even for your Tikka there is not the same level of aftermarket upgrades a...

Re: Remembering Glockpacker

Flshooter,
Glockpacker's ashes were scattered on the High Power range at PMRPC between the 500 and 600yd lines. This was back in 2011, there was a pic of Eric on this site prior to the last big crash, showing him with a 600yd clean.

Re: remington 700 in 223?

I would go with #1 as long as the barrel is not a hunting contour(skinny), and the twist is 9 or faster. Free float stock a plus. #3 would be next for same reason. #1 & #3 then #2 in that order. Only because there is a ton of aftermarket support for the 700 action. 788 not so much. I have shot for y...

Re: Getting to a mile(1760yds)

Bagman, You should post the difference in comeups needed shooting in Raton, NM vs here in Fl. Eyeopening the difference needed to get out there. Buddy from my 300winmag post recently went the Milk Jug challenge in Utah, elev 6500ft asl. The difference needed to get to a mile was 10moa less than he n...

Re: Shockwave or Tac14?

I got 1 of the Tac14 hardwood models with the 5+1 capacity on a whim. It is a lot of fun to shoot. Recoil is not as bad as it would seem, your arms not your shoulder absorb all the recoil. Have put up to 3in magnum rounds thru it and found it controllable. Shot a water jug with a Brenneke bear slug ...

Getting to a mile(1760yds)

I had posted before that I was going to attempt to shoot a mile with my 300WinMag. Shooting a 208gr bullet doing 2940fps, will be subsonic at mile shooting at sea level. Things needed to be done to get to one mile: 1: 20MOA rail on rifle. 2: Burris XTR adjustable rings(I set this at +30moa) Rifle wa...

Re: AR pistols in WMAs that prohibit rifles?

FlCracker,
Good info.

Question, do you think an FWC officer would actually know what constitutes an AR pistol? And does your pistol have just the buffer tube or one of the new 'braces'?

Curious, because I have an AR 'pistol' also.
