  1. The old non uniform trim length, it doesn't matter accuracy wise. I have used my Giraud for 10 years, it indexes off the shoulder, so consistent trim lengths are achieved by consistent bumping of the shoulder, I set my trim length .010 from end of chamber, my 308 trim length is 2.025, 223/556 is 1.765, stop worrying about trim length, its not what causing your misses.
  2. My employer decided to take away vacation, and replace it with PTO(paid time off), instead of taking our earned vacation for the year, and filling up the PTO bank which is earned monthly, my Airline cut me a check for 5 weeks pay, my SVI 9/40 sight tracker was basically free, so for me the buy was totally worth it.
  3. I fix 737s for a living, while I am not on graves anymore(24years of seniority) Streamlight flashlights rule the roost in my profession, we all have a few of there rechargeables for walk around inspections, my TLR2 is old, it still works great though.
  4. I have watched season 1 on NF, its ok, I like that each episode is its own, like NCIS, I will continue watching it at work.
  5. IMHO the clogging of the comp is a powder issue, I shoot Blues in my Infinity 9/40 sight tracker using N320, I picked up a CZ Scorpion Pistol which is now a SBR, using the same Blue 125RN I decided to not use N320, and loaded up some with Titegroup, after 500 rounds the muzzle device started clogging up, cleaned it and shot another 200 with n320 and the muzzle is clean as can be.
  6. I fix 737's for a living, after 34 years of nights weekends and holidays a decent handheld flashlight is very important to me, I use to always recommend Streamlight anything, and still do, Fenix aren't bad either, but I have a few WowTac A1S handhelds and there matching headlamp, these things just work, I haven't broken one yet, and they are priced right on Amazon.
  7. I got a CZ, the trigger sucks really bad, I’ll probably order a Timney drop in next year, other than that it is stupid accurate imho, and has been flawless with magpul mags and 124 blue bullets, but if I was buying today I’d get a JP, buy once cry once.
  8. Get some Peltor EEP-100, with Skull Screw tips(20 bucks extra for 10 pairs) provide an honest 30db noise reduction, I love these things, I wear them at work(I fix 737's) and on the range. https://www.amazon.com/EEP-100-Rechargeable-Construction-Manufacturing-Maintenance/dp/B07P8YDBZD/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=eep-100&qid=1604458401&sr=8-2 https://www.amazon.com/3M-Peltor-Skull-Replacement-370-1019-10/dp/B00AEY4RRO/ref=pd_all_pref_n_4/144-3467665-7991353?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00AEY4RRO&pd_rd_r=6828f40a-74d0-45a2-9c7a-f07ceaa19c7f&pd_rd_w=wnqAe&pd_rd_wg=6knG7&pf_rd_p=36d0712f-e8f6-49f0-8101-fe2ba60e1597&pf_rd_r=16YRB31KFAV1JBQY5VEE&psc=1&refRID=16YRB31KFAV1JBQY5VEE
  9. ordered on July 31st, got shipping notice today
  10. I wish I had gone with the aggressive grip on my SVI
  11. Ordrered a case of 9mm 125's and a case of 40 180's from blue bullets on July 31st, at the time the site said 4-5 weeks, called on sept 10, told to expect my order around Oct 20

  13. I bulge bust every 40 case, I full length resize with a Lee U die, my Infinity eats my ammo, and is accurate, IMHO the FCD is un needed and makes ammo less accurate.
  14. I perfer a SVI tube with Taran followers and springs, my Stock 40 mags ran flawless, but the 9mm ones jammed, Taran guts fixed all that
  15. When it comes to glass there is a difference in those that cost 200 bucks and 3000+, I spend my money first on a high dollar rifle scope first instead of a Swaro spotter or Swaro binos. if that is covered get a spotter first, I prefer the straight ones over angled models, unless F-Class is your game, then get some 10x Swaro ELR binos, ie Bino/LRF
  16. Bolt throw is no big deal, I don't see a difference in speed or accuracy, the Gap Tempest has a 60 degree throw, and a 3 lug bolt, Impact/Defiance/Surgeon have whatever degree and 2 lug bolts. Ejectors are all the same, but extractors are either Rem or M16, I have never broken either so those are a wash The integral recoil lug adds a lot of strength, a pinned lug works but no way is 2 pieces stronger than 1, also more barrel shank is in the receiver which may help with rigidity as things heat up BDL bottom metal are a stock Rem700 hinged bottom metal, usually the internal mag holds 3-5 rounds, so any AICS bottom metal or stock that uses AICS mags will work, AIAX mags require different rails for the bolt, I also see more issues with AIAX mags versus AICS mags in Rem pattern actions, in a dedicated AI rifle they are flawless
  17. I am a huge fan of Impact Actions, I also love the fact that just about anyone of us can swap the barrels out which are available on there website.
  18. degrease everything, then take a Marks A lot, and mark all suspected areas, cycle the slide a dozen time and examine the marked areas for worn off marker
  19. Peltor EEP-100 with Skull Screw Tips are 30db noise reduction for 180 bucks from Amazon, this things rock
  20. this aint precision benchrest, put the borescope away, clean or don't clean, its a pistol round loaded at low pressure
  21. I can somewhat answer this question, 99% of people who trim to published minimums are doing too much work in there reloading process, since in the bolt action world no crimp is necessary, and trimming is not an accuracy step why trim at all, safety is the answer. Sinclair sells a chamber length gauge, I trim 308 brass when it gets to 2.025, which is .010 from the end of the chamber, it takes about 10 firings before trimming is required, and in my experience annealing has no effect on how many firings it takes for the brass neck to grow to the trim point, so it very well could be that this certain shooter simply doesn't get enough firings on his brass to require trimming.
  22. the AMG is the wave of the future, and my CED7000 is broken, I also greatly prefer using off the shelf buy anywhere batteries instead of having to charge
  23. My 2017 sight tracker feeds reliably from SV and STI tubes
