    Through or against the other side of the skin, what are your thoughts

    Hi Jim, I am not talking about "crossing my fingers and hoping..."! It is a decision to not shoot an animal inside a herd with a bullet that probably will pass through! If I were to hunt herd animals, I would use a very good bullet designed to not pass and wound another animal. Probably a Swift...

    Through or against the other side of the skin, what are your thoughts

    Hello, I like an entrance (on the right spot) and an exit (also leaving at the right spot) hole. By far! The only situation I would not like this, would be the one were there is a posibility to wound another animal at the far side. I see no problem with a good bleeding exit hole! I have lost a...

    Hello Daga Boy, You can do this, 300 grs at 2300 f/s for sure without any issue, with the 9,3x62! Good luck! CF

    Your recommendations - compact and convenient high quality binoculars

    Hello Longwalker, I had the same question some years ago to complement my main 10x42. Having had an 8x20 high quality binocular, in spite of being small and light weight, it falls short in optics. So, I end with a 8x32 one. I would do the same today. I bought a Meopta Meostar 8x32 for a very...

    Replacement Trigger for an FN Commcercial

    Hi Scrumbag, Thinking a little further, you can also make and use a single narrow plate of that thickness with two holes made at the same distance and of the same diameter of the ones in that part of the safety. Anyway, the two washers work great. Good luck CF

    I must add would be better to use inox washers.

    Replacement Trigger for an FN Commcercial

    Hi Scrumbag, Here. 1,5 mm is the safety plate thickness. I think you can use washers of 1,5 to 1,6 mm may be better the later to avoid any play. Good luck !

    Replacement Trigger for an FN Commcercial

    Hello Scrumbag, Here are the pictures. The two washers can be easely seen. This trigger is a little jewel, all steel, solid and really fool proof. Not to change anything but the safety to use a Winchester 70 type, a normal Mauser 98 one, or the previous FN mounted on the bolt, as I preffer...

    What comes before and after a 9.3 x 62?

    Hello, I like my rifles/cartridges have similar, if not the same, trajectory with their usual bullet weights. So, before my 9,3x62 I put my 7x57 and, after the 9,3 y would put a 404 Jeffery.

    Replacement Trigger for an FN Commcercial

    Hello Scrumbag, You can take out the safety part and keep this excelent FN factory trigger. I did it myself in my FN-AKAH 30-06. The ONLY thing that is needed to do is to put two washers of the same thickness instead of the safety plate. Done! I will upload some pictures of this. Best CF

    Rangefinding Binos: Leica vs Swarovski

    Hi lvW, Agree!!! I do not use, or have, RF. I use the scope reticle as a RF. All my riflescopes have FFP reticles, german Nr 1 or Nr 4. You must KNOW the animal dimentions as aproximately as you can. Worked more than enough to me. Best! CF
