Re: Looking for a smith who can cut me a new chamber

Do you already have a chamber reamer? If not Pacific Tool and Gauge can make you a custom reamer allowing you to reach the lands with ease. I was also going to suggest S and S Precision Rifles in Texas. They built my custom .204 and did a great job. Stick has the knowhow to build a benchrest grade r...

Re: Flat base for handguard

You may also want to buy a bubble level for your rifle. They make models that mount directly to your scope or to other placers on your AR. They will insure that you're not inducing cant into your rifle between shots.

Re: Flat base for handguard

A flat base with a bag that matches is the only way to go. I have a custom .204 benchrest rig with a flat base, Shehane Tracker, that allows the rifle to recoil backwards and you just have to push it forward against the stop to return to the previous position with the rifle still level. Anything els...

Re: Flat base for handguard

6mmAR.com has a flat base bag rider for the AR platform. It's not exactly what you're describing, but you may be able to adapt it to suit your needs. Look under the Benchrest AR tab.

Re: 2017 204 Ruger Five Shot Challenge

You're not going to believe this turn of events, I still don't. I went down to the post office today to close out my PO Box and found out that there was an envelope behind the counter. It was from Canada and postdated August 31st. I opened it and just about went into cardiac arrest. So, I ran home a...

Re: Monthly Shootout: September 2017!!!

Those Savage LRPVs are very accurate rifles for a moderate investment. A true value in a 204 Ruger, if accuracy is your goal. I like 'em. :wtg:

Sounds like it well on its way. Those carbon rings are real group killers.

Re: Monthly Shootout: September 2017!!!

On Target measures from Center to Center so I would think Jaxteller would insist that you use the same procedure to measure the farthest shot. Center of the farthest shot to dead center of the bulls-eye. Otherwise, smaller calibers would still have an advantage.

Re: Monthly Shootout: September 2017!!!

If you measure groups from outside to outside without deducting the caliber size then the smaller calibers will win every time the center to center measurement is exactly the same. You're going to have to measure from center to center for it to be competitive.
