    • I enjoy shooting long range to 1000yds.  Thus far, it all has been done with single shot BPCR rifles at paper and gong targets. Was at a Ridgway RC meeting in PA and won a Mossberg 300 Win Mag.  Ridgway has a 700-800-900-1000 yd Silhouette range and instead of spending the big bucks for a rifle - the Mossberg will be it.  I mounted a Hi-Lux M-1000 scope on the rifle, fiddled with a bore sighter getting equal elevation and windage adjustments and then started making reloads with 150gr - 168gr - 170gr - 180gr and 220gr bullets.  Am finished with the ammo and trajectory tables for each batch of rounds, now the rifle & loads need to be dialed  in a Central Jersey for 273yd (equal to 250 meters) scope settings.  Once I get this done for each of the rounds by bullet weight, I can set the auto dial up Camputer settings. Next work step when the weather breaks - drive up to Ridgway, spend a week there and fine tune the Camputer auto settings at 250 - 300 - 400 - 500 meters ... then compute and test the difference in Camputer settings from meters to yards at 700-800-900 and 1000yds ... plus determine which bullet weight reloads are going to provide the better groups. And for the good of the order ... Winchester 300 Win Mag brass SUCKS!  Out of 100 cases - the extrusions on the necks for 55 cases were split and the brass looked like spaghetti.  Contacted Winchester Olin customer service after calling every day for a week - to send the brass back for replacements.  This whole process has been a month and a half and still haven't received the compensation check.  But I found a vendor on eBay selling once fired.  They are Federals and the brass is excellent but work was needed on them because the original ammo was probably military sniper rounds and the webs were too large and wouldn't chamber in the Mossberg.  So 250 cases were FL sized - web trimmed - case length trimmed - cleaned in the rotary tumbler and ID of necks chamfered  before any reloading started.  Work was worth the effort because the brass is now up to snuff for future use with excellent cases
    • I have no axe to grind with AVB-AMG or anybody else. I am merely an observer and want to make an observation. The pro-gun rights side vs the gun prohibition side is constantly being badgered to "compromise" and to "find middle ground". This cannot be achieved because the gun prohibition side of the argument is dishonest. They claim to be compromising but never give up anything. They just move their goal posts to a lesser ban for the duration of any negotiation - e.g. "just give up 15 round magazines and make the limit 5 but we will compromise at 10". The only compromise they are really making is that they won't demand total disarmament of everybody just yet. It is an incremental approach that needs to stop. The goal is a ban on everything. The "nobody is trying to take your guns" is a lie. Not one more inch. I'm done. I had all my pistols confiscated in England in 1997 to allow the politicians to say they did something after Dunblane and before the inquiry was completed. They will never admit they did something completely ineffective and they will never admit how much they spent from the public purse compensating law abiding people for stealing their property. When one side argues from a position of lies, there is no way to negotiate.
