    Need advise for first Precision Rifle purchase

    Grab a tikka, he stock/chassis options are about as plentiful as they are for a Remington 700 and you don’t often have to worry about trusting the Tikka action.

    Nightforce NX8

    It’s super bright, bright as my vortex razor. After some range time I will be deciding if I’m selling the Razor or not.

    Which 1911

    I bought the Remington R1 in .40 and had a friend tritop it and smoothed the trigger out. It’s a great shooter and shoots pretty flat in comparison to my STI 2011. I recommend them!

    AR triggers (2018)

    I have the hyperfire 24C and CMC curved trigger, and I tried a Calvin Elite and long for one now. It won't make me shoot better but it's by far the nicest trigger I've tried in an AR

    Nightforce NX8

    I just received my NX8 2 weeks ago. The eyebox isn't as large as the Razor, but I like the size, weight and the fact it's a FFP is a large reason I wanted to try one. My other rifle scopes are first focal plane and not worrying what I'm set at when I shoot at a target is a good piece of mind. It's not perfect, but it seems to be a good fit for me. And as far as reticle being too large at 8x, is less of a concern as the major matches I attend and will attend in the future have always used a fairly large plate for a target. Once we get to shooting 4" plates at 400yds, then I might worry. (The strike eagle reticle is huge in comparison and I never had an issue with it)
  6. I've had both of my STIs chambers over sized to ensure they are more reliable, then I bought the Hundo case gauge and guess what, nothing fits it but does fit my Dillon case gauge. I'm wanting to ream my case gauge to nearly match my chambers so I can speed up the ammo checking. Any one have 1 to lend, or can I send my case gauge to someone to have it opened up? Thanks

    .40 S&W oversized reamer to borrow?

    I bought the xl hundo, still my ammo doesn't fit fully. And it's near bullseye accurate so I'm not wanting to change too much to make it work.

    Bullets key holing

    I had the same problem with someone's plated rounds. Buy a different batch and try those. I had a bad box, they were the only ones I ever had tumblr in thousands of rounds.

    6" 2011s new norm?

    I just got a FGW 6" and really like how it handles and shoots, easy to make Major with less powder..do you guys think they will ever be "it" gun? Heck, I'm even entertaining the thought of a 6" sight-tracker!

    40S&w vs 9mm limited

    Been there as well, tried 9 minor halfway thru the season and did damn good, placed top 20 in a field of 60-80 consistently, then came winter break and starting the season, placed waaay down the list. I'm completely sold on 40major, tho I'd like to try 40 minor just for fun once. Btw, I'm top 5 but the experience and practice has helped a lot with that.

    Mutant Texas Star?

    The stages and props at the MO3gun were awesome! Though I think a bonus point stage with this in it only would be a great incentive if you give the option to apply a few seconds off the worst of the stage with the single guns (pistol only, rifle only or shotgun only). Might add a little fun...or just throw out an award for fastest run...regardless, bring on the difficult props!

    6" 2011s new norm?

    Well crap, my bullet seating depth caused serious malfunctions in my 6" gun so I went to me 5" backup and shot probably just as good as I would have..to be continued.

    So I bought some green mountain blanks...

    Nice, I'm curious how good they shoot, price seems right

    Limited 6 - K frames

    I actually sold my 627 vcomp for a S&W 610, and kept my 625. So easy to reload that it makes me look like I know what I'm doing.

    Shooting Pants

    I only use Duluth pants, their line is pretty good on varieties but for all day comfort i run the dry on the fly stretch pant and shorts. And if you wear them out, send them back for a new pair..best thing out there in my mind

    video in Japan of Open Division?

    i agree, its all entertainment. I shoot USPSA and am certain alot of the moving and shooting they do would be frowned upon. But it looks cool. Lol. Just like anything else on TV, the general public may not know any better, but the people who do actually have real world experience would say "nope not even close". Haha

    Any Experience with CK Arms Thunder Limited?

    I just received my limited 40 from CK Arms yesterday. I'm very impressed with it. And accuracy wise is ridiculously accurate. In the coming weeks I will post Uspsa video with it.

    Opinion of Major vs Minor Scoring

    I asked my self the same thing last year. A year ago I started shooting Revolver division because that was all I had. Found a good deal on a used .40 STI 2011 and found my placing right up in the top 1/3 overall and too 10 of Limited. I felt like I was identifyling targets and transitioning faster than I was getting the bullets there. So I downloaded to MINOR scoring and did my best placement ever. So I bought an Edge 9mm and have not only had more fun, but also have been on occasion the stage winner taking 100% of points OVERALL! Having fun is why we do this so pick accordingly is my opinion. I'm working hard to make Master with this 9mm and so far had I not messed around with .40 and MAJOR early last year, would likely be there now.

    So I shot a Infinity yesterday....

    I've been holding off shooting an Infinity. I have 2 STI 2011s, a .40 & a 9mm. I do fine and am happy, and fearful that if I were to shoot an Infinity that I'd be tempted to sell both to buy just one Infinity! Lol.
  24. Travis224


    I know that its a new model but someone HAS to have one by now. Please give a report, I held a P-07 the other day and apparently the 09 changes fix the short, narrow grip of the 07 but i was just curious how everyone was liking theirs.

    New to Revo Competition. 627 V-Comp, or 627PC?

    I have had the PC 627, and I HAVE the Vcomp. I love the Vcomp, I'm a average guy and don't see any problem transitioning targets. The PC model was light, and shot fast. For most people, the PC is a nicer all around pistol, I like putting on the comp and red dot and shoot open class on Steel Challenge tho. I did also took 1st place at the Nebraska State Steel Challenge match last fall with the Vcomp. A lot of guys were envious about how flat the Vcomp runs too.
