    New Vortex PST 6-24x50

    Great info. I have been looking at the Athlons and was just at a PRS match yesterday, two shooters were running Athlons (one Argos and one Cerus (sp)) Both had good things to say and shot very well.
  2. Look at Ruger RPR, love mine and have seen many of them at PRS matches and FTR.
  3. I agree with NateTSU! Do NOT agree with Stuey, you can get 6.5 ammo in droves now with no wait or little wait and anyone getting into PRS should be reloading anyway, buy projectiles, and brass and those are now in stock at any of the major re-sellers. I am buying Peterson brass from Graf & Sons, projectiles from Midsouth (had great deals on 250 packs of projectiles) I love my RPR (Ruger), just did my first PRS skills builder match yesterday and got 9th overall out of 30, the RPR is dead nuts accurate, there were two other shooters with RPRs. Sorry, just re-read your post, did not see you had a 50% off coupon. In that case you cannot go wrong with the Seekins and you will get your money back long term. Good luck!
  4. I have read velocities from both rifles with Comps and without. Do you have the comp in the correct area (just behind the unit) to pick up the projectile shock wave that triggers the unit?

    Same bullet weight, different velocity?

    I agree with the premise just surprised to see that much difference from a 4.75 inch barrel. I stuck with the JHP since it helped power factor.

    Same bullet weight, different velocity?

    Could be, but I have not seen that translate to my 223 reloading and that is with a 20 inch barrel.

    Same bullet weight, different velocity?

    I ran into something similar many years ago when testing round nose bullets to JHP (both MGBs). Another shooter and I wanted to see which fed better in our race guns. We found that the JHP was almost 100 fps faster. This test was done over 10 years ago.

    Perfect Powder Baffle

    I like the powder baffles in the tubes for more consistent throws but that powder quick disconnect, not sure the real value, I take the entire tool head off and dump powder plus I have a powder tube for all my tool head and die setups and not sure this would have changed my thoughts on having the entire tool head setup and ready to go for each caliber.
  9. Firmware is out for bluetooth. The only issue is the menu is hard to find, it defaults to m/s instead of f/s, otherwise it will be a great addition to the labradar unit so you can monitor it and change it while someone is shooting and not have to get close to a muzzle.

    Why are handguards so expensive?

    Nice find @Chip3!! Thanks, I need to replace a junkie one that came on my Stag AR and did not want to buy a ton.

    Re barrel or buy new

    Nowadays the re-barreling of rifle is standard practice and if you get the work done without too much expense. I have only done it once and the rifle had a great action. Just get a good barrel and get the install done right.
  12. @38Superman, thanks for the link, great reading. @Leam, I just started shooting 6.5 Creedmoor (RPR 1:7 twist) and REALLY like the Hornady 140 ELDs. Hornady just came out with an awesome 88 gr one that I am going to reload for the .224 Valkyrie (PSA upper, 1:7 twist), I have not done a lot of heavier bullets for 223 yet but was going to get a .223 bolt gun to match my 6.5 CM and use as a trainer. I am going to try the 88 gr ELDs with that gun and update but that will be awhile.

    Bullet pullers

    I like the hornady bullet puller. It fits into a press and has different collets for calibers and you can easily pour out the powder into your container. It might mar some softer bullets but I still shoot them. https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B000PCZZO4?tag=amz-mkt-chr-us-20&ascsubtag=1ba00-01000-s1060-win10-other-smile-us000-pcomp-feature-scomp-wm-5&ref=aa_scomp
