  1. https://www.atf.gov/resource-center/firearms-trace-data-2017
  2. Search up the Powley Calculator and determine which bullet will provide the highest stability factor
  3. Etsy has once fired 300 Win Mag brass for $30 per 50. Other vendors are in the $43 per 50 https://www.etsy.com/listing/593207873/300-win-mag-once-fired-military-brass
  4. 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 turn bolt smokeless 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 at 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 so I ordered 250 cases. 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 the 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
  5. Hey Sweeney, turn in your CC permit, you two faced hypocrite January 26, 2018. At today’s “gun safety” announcement, Governor Murphy, Senate President Stephen Sweeney, and Attorney General Gurbir Grewal launched a full scale attack on the right of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves with a firearm outside the home, otherwise known as right to carry. Murphy announced an intention to reverse Governor Christie’s executive order allowing those facing serious threats to qualify for a handgun carry permit, and to challenge any federal action on right to carry reciprocity. ANJRPC Executive Director Scott Bach slammed the move. “The U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly held that police have no duty to protect individual citizens, which means you’re on your own in an emergency. It is an outrage that the same government that abandons its duty to keep us safe is also working to prevent us from protecting ourselves. Governor Murphy will have the blood of more innocents like Carol Bowne on his hands.” Bach continued, “New Jersey is going to have to be dragged, kicking and screaming, into legal recognition of the right to defend yourself outside the home. ANJRPC is more than happy to oblige and will be at the forefront of the movement to restore this fundamental right.” Please forward this email to every gun owner you know, and if you don’t already receive alerts from ANJRPC please subscribe to our free email alerts for the latest Second Amendment breaking news and action alerts.

  6. And if they don't, any semi auto rifle or shotgun with a forearm (hand guard) will be illegal in the definition of 'assault firearm'... as a Remington 1100 or a Remington 7400, etc, even the Contender Thompson Sub Machine Gun https://images.search.yahoo.com/yhs/search;_ylt=A0LEVvuD22BaNk0A3jInnIlQ;_ylu=X3oDMTByMjB0aG5zBGNvbG8DYmYxBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDBHNlYwNzYw--?p=Contender+Thompson+Sub+Machine+Gun&fr=yhs-mozilla-002&hspart=mozilla&hsimp=yhs-002

(iii) a second handgrip or a protruding grip that can be held by the non-trigger hand; Means that any rifle or shotgun that has a forearm would be classified as an assault firearm Senator Gill's Office telephone number ...

  8. Old School - the matches are held at the Ridgway RIfle Club, Ridgway, PA ... http://www.ridgwayrifleclub.com/
  9. Marty - then there's the opposite side of shooting ... I cast - reload & hand load for every caliber of firearm that I own including 22LR with black powder. Includes 22LR up to 50-70 and metrics. The last and about the only time I bought factory ammunition was 2 boxes of 303 British from Privi Partizan to pull the jacket bullets to reload them with lead cast bullets for a 1893 Styer Martini Mark III rifle with smokeless and black powders. Being retired, I find enjoyment doing this instead of buying factory ammo, the majority of which is not obtainable for retail sale because the Pb bullet caliber rounds are non existent
  10. Kaiser - would this kind of match interest you ... http://www.ridgwayrifleclub.com/VBR/VBR 2017 Schedule.pdf
