    Quiet Muzzle Break

    You guys don't know how lucky you are. Along with full auto, bump stocks and anything that simulates full auto, silencer possession in my uber liberal state makes me a felon. Otherwise I'd use them on almost all my rifles. Just remember all it takes is the stroke of a pen and you may be in the...

    All one needs to do here in the U.S. is watch Biden's campaign commercials. His tone and what he says are geared to those with low mental horsepower, maturity, education and a willingness to believe anything.

    Quiet Muzzle Break

    Being of radial design, it won't mitigate recoil as well as a ported style. This type isn't recommended for a hunting rifle where there's a possibility of shooting close to the ground. As far as the 85% recoil reduction, I'd like to see on what rifle and how they arrived at that figure. From...

    MiG 21 Fishbed. There used to be one that flew out of Wilmington, DE. I made some parts for assembling it. It's one badass aircraft.

    Gun cleaning behind all copper ammo

    In my experience and although it may not happen when in your ownership, a coppered up rifle's accuracy will eventually drop off a cliff. Whether or not it happens when that cape buffalo presents itself is the question. :E Big Grin:

    Take this one to bed

    I can see where a reload could be problematic. I've found hundreds on the ranges. They are usually without a primer, primer upside down, no powder, wet powder, or bullet loose and pushed back in. Having said that, I trust my reloads more than factory ammo, at least for consistency and accuracy...

    @C.W. Richter I did not reload that cartridge, found it on the 500 meter range at our gun club. The previous day I found a .300 RUM case with no primer and the primer laying two benches away. That piece of brass looked hard used.

    At the range yesterday, I had an interesting find. As a reloader and future DG hunter, it made me do some serious thinking. Cape buffalo, lion, elephant, grizzly. one pulls the trigger, the animal flinches but doesn't drop. It now sees the transgressor and is intent on terminating it. Your...

    Plains Game Magnum?

    I think we can agree on the advice to take the rifle you shoot the best for the game being pursued. If it's a magnum of some stripe, take it. If it's a 6.5 Creedmoor, .270 or an '06, same advice. I just disagree that everyone should take a magnum for plains game. I've witnessed too many hunters...

    Plains Game Magnum?

    One morning's hunt, six taken with 6.5 CM, nothing under 200 yds. For a change that year, I took a 26 Nosler and killed two of these. It was like they were struck by lightning.

    Plains Game Magnum?

    The only comment I can make is they were either bad shots, used the wrong bullet or took marginal shots.

    Plains Game Magnum?

    One caveat for the MAGNUMs, if you're shooting in to a herd of the smaller PG at any distance up to 500 meters, it'd be a good idea to see if there is another animal standing behind the one you have in your crosshairs. :oops:
