  1. I have the Burris SpeedBead and see no reason to do anything else.
  2. Looks like you’re all fixed up. Good deal and have fun with that thing.
  3. That is one heck of a disclaimer there. Don’t guarantee a rifle barrel to be accurate…
  4. My favorite and best shooting rifle has a CMMG 1-8 twist 16 inch barrel. I’ve hit steel out to 400 yards with that gun. I have shot a lot of 208s out of the eight twist barrel, so don’t feel that your problem.
  5. I would start with a replacement barrel. I have 3 different Blackouts and they all shoot supersonic ammo pretty well with about anything. Subsonic ammo is more difficult to get good accuracy from, but I’ve never had any trouble out of supersonic stuff. I use the surplus 147s and whatever other .30 cal bullets I can get cheap. I loaded up some 165 softpoints for 3 gun shooting since they are steel target friendly. Didn’t work anything up, just tried a load and it’s 1.5 moa easily. The 147s stay around or slightly over 1” at 100 yards. Anything over 2” is unacceptable in my mind. My 8” Black Rain Ordinance barrel shoots really well. I’ll check to see what my 16” barrels are. I did try some of those 110 gr Barnes black tip hunting bullets and don’t think I ever got a group over an inch at 100. They shot very well, but kind of expensive.

  7. One cool thing about the Mossberg version is you can buy a $20 adapter piece and it will function perfectly with the Aquila mini shells. I don’t own one yet, but it’s certainly a toy more than a tool in my mind.
  8. I went through 2 Razors as well with that problem. Their standard answer is “never seen that before”, because that’s what I got from Vortex as well. They did send new replacements both times, but my Razors now only reside on rimfires or AR 15s. I like the sight, but not durable enough for open gun.
  9. I had a similar experience a few years ago with rifle primers. The outer sleeve said large pistol, but inside the packages were correctly marked for the GM215M large rifle match primers. Doesn’t seem like a good idea to me.
  10. Being my own “Smith”, I would rather not add too much to the project unless it’s just a quick trip to the mill.
  11. Need a W/N ramped 5.4” threaded
  12. Never caused any problems, so no reason to do anything with it.
  13. Best thing would be someone with one at a match and ask to run and Meg through their gun if possible. I was skeptical, but bought one. Now I have two. Others have gone back to plastic, so obviously no perfect answer. There is quite a difference between the various brands of grips as well.
  14. I tried the Razor and agree that an Open gun was more than it could handle. I talked to Vortex, sent it back twice, even tried piece of rubber band under battery contact. It just kept shutting down. I put that Razor on a 1919 shotgun and it’s been fine for several months. Went to DPP for pistols.
  15. I’ve used the Racemaster for several years without issue and when locked the gun is not coming out. It’s plenty fast to draw once you are used to disengaging the lock. I did watch a guy lose his pistol at the last multigun match from a RM, but he didn’t lock it before starting the stage either.
