    How to keep scope cross hairs from dancing (AR-15/rifle technique)

    Always fancied myself a decent shot, but that mindset is crippling. These past few weeks I have been load testing reloads in my Barnes Precision AR15 and it's been a humbling experience. It's not a bull barrel target gun, its an infantry style weapon with 16" stainless Montana barrel, but very...

    Can the legendary Dillon 550 be modified and improved?

    Been sorting through lots of online ideas lately. Seems the 550 has tons of potential modifications to improve it's function. Heard of folks polishing certain parts to reduce friction. Read where someone polished the primer charging bar with frog lube. A guy on YouTube made a customized longer...

    Pic of my lighted 550B....

    Found this light online the other night and had to have it. Got two flexible small LED lamps I use also. Bought a cheap 19" flexible arm 2.5" mirror I attached to strong mount with a zip tie. Great for seeing powder in station three from my perch on the barstool. Works with pistol rounds anyway...

    Help pick out my first 9 mm... Target/plinker

    Long story short, I got 600-700 rounds of 9mm ammo, 2000+ once fired cases (thanks to Traveler), several pounds of Longshot powder, 1000 projectiles, and a Beretta 9mm my wife rarely shoots. Seems I overdid the 9mm reloading effort given the volume my wife shoots. Also seems that 13 month old...

    One powder for 9mm, 40 S&W, and 10 mm?

    Got a Dillon 550B and plan to load the above calibers. Powder is sporadically available at my LGS, but what is there today is gone tomorrow. Would be great to get a jug and load all three rounds. Wondering if there is a single powder I could use to load all three calibers. Would prefer one that...

    AR15 LOP, I need two more inches... And 1/8-1/4 cheek riser ideas...

    Got a fixed magpul moe rifle stock on my Barnes Precision AR15. Really need about 2 more inches. See the magpul 0.80 extended pad only nets 0.5" gain. The $250 Magpul PRS adjustable stock, which I can't afford, will give me 1.5" extra if I put the extended .80 pad on it. However, it does have...

    Why is my COAL varying so much?

    I am using Redding Deluxe 223 dies. Lapua match brass all trimmed to same (+\- 0.001) length on my Forster trimmer. Flash holes deburred, which seemed pointless on this brass, champher/deburred case mouths, full length sized, etc.. Mica and case mouth brush inside all cases before sizing. All...

    Ar15. Suggest an accurate target bullet...

    Buddy helped me load my first 223 rounds today. After having shot PMC for 6 months, grouping 1.25" on average, I was hoping to see an improvement. My buddy is getting consistent 0.5 MOA with 24.2 grains of varget and 77 matchking molys, the same bullet and powder we used today. We both are...

    This could be a game changer...

    I was impressed with some of the innovative offerings I saw at The Fly Fishing Show here in NC back in February. Namely the sculpin helmets from this company. Check out this articulating set up. http://flymenfishingcompany.org/products/fish-skull-products/fs-articulated-fish-spine/ Dan

    Oar length question for 10' Sotar (pics included)...

    These Sawyer pole cats measure 8.5' but feel a bit long. With so little of the shaft above the oar locks, they feel heavy and out of balance. Any suggestions on the appropriateness of these oars or suggestions for improvement? Thanks for any thoughts. Dan

    What's better than a Sotar?

    Two Sotars:) Thanks to Goo for hooking me up (twice). We just got the new 10 footer out today and look forward to running it on some Smoky Mtn streams here in NC this summer. Will be using it on the Upper Kenai in Sept as well. The 14.5' is a tested battle wagon and got us down a few remote...

    Fishapalooza 2013... Anyone going?

    Wife and I are starting to plan trip to Alaska this summer/fall. Wondering if anyone was going to be on the Upper Kenai in September. Last year we missed Palooza as wife was 8 months pregnant and I did a float on the Kwethluk in SW. Year before last on the Upper Kenai it was record flood...

    NuCanoe Frontier... Big Boy kayak that accepts motor, stable for standing up, etc...

    I just bought a very interesting kayak. It is 12 feet long, 41" wide, has a 650 lb payload, is self bailing and unsinkable, weighs 77 lbs, and accepts electric trolling motors or 2.5 hp outboards. There is a video on Youtube if you google Nucanoe outboard, that shows one running about 10 mph...

    How do I get dent out of kayak (not open style kayak)..

    I got two Freedom Hawk kayaks the wife and I bought last year for fly fishing the salt water shallows. Very unique kayaks that have handles you pull to deploy two outriggers, basically making the kayak a Y shape for stability when standing, poling, etc.. We also bought a kayak trailer to carry...

    Gun safe light kit, very bright, $40...

    Read about this on the Cal Guns forum the other week and ordered one from Lite Tech Auto website. The complete kit is $40 and comes with AC power and AA battery box for folks that don't have wire hole in safe. The LED kit is 'plug and play' and is idiot proof to install. It sticks to the carpet...

    IMR Trail Boss... anyone use it?

Got all the bullets I need. Got all the dies and brass I need. Plan is to start off reloading 45/70 for my guide gun. Then...

    Henry Golden Boy, Marlin 39A, or Browning BL-22.... Want a nice lever action 22...

    I own two lever action rifles, a customized Marlin Guide Gun 45/70 and a Henry Big Boy Deluxe II in 44 special/44 mag. Want to add a 22 lever action next. In Walmart tonight I saw the Henry 22 lever action (H001) for $299. Almost bought it, but wanted to research the subject a bit first. Looks...

    What is best way to bolt down a gun safe?

    Delivery truck is on the way with a 39" x 66" 950 lb safe. Been reading online enough to know that bolting it down, or securing with anchors, etc.. is a good move. Problem is, I don't know much about gun safes or best way to accomplish this task. The safe is going to be on hardwood floors with...
