    It was actually Greg's site where I read about this. I really like his explanations and u-tubes; very educational. While learning about this issue I was wondering exactly the point you were bringing...

    Chris, I am going to use the 168 gr Barnes TTSX for Whitetail out to 400 yds. I agree for larger animals with your comments. I think the 168 TTSX is a good match for deer in SC. I have taken many...

    I am not using any muzzle device; just factory 11 degree target crown. I hear you that a 300 Win is going to move in response to the reaction of the bullet leaving the rifle. Physics is inescapable....

    Been somewhat confused about some inconsistent groupings. 2 in same hole ( or ragged hole and then a flyer). My 700, 5R in 300 Win seems to jump so that I lose the sight picture but I expect to shoot...

    I have a Rem 700, 5R in 300 win. It has a 26" Varmint/Sendero contour barrel which is a little heavier than Sporter or Std barrels. The HS Precision stock is nice ( compared to typical manufacturer...

    Rhyno430 liked post by RMikeD On thread : New Personal best today
    Rhyno, I agree that a bullet passing through is "energy not deposited into animal". When I hit shoulder or neck with 178 Amax, they drop right there; no tracking required. The fact that they...

    Been trying to find alternate hunting load to 178 gr Amax in 300 Win. The ELD-X can't be found in 178! Working load for Barnes 175 LRX. Switched from 71 gr IMR 4350 ( for 178 Amax at 3.500", 0.025...

    I would defer to those more knowledgable than me (Nate, Orkan, Deadshot2, ddd007) but I think the real answer is "the accuracy affect from shortening barrel is directly related to the quality of work...

    AsherBlue liked post by RMikeD On thread : Sendero in 308?
    In addition to the 5R rifling being different than the Sendero, the 5R does not have a fluted barrel. At least I have not seen a factory fluted 5R. I have not been following Remington's offerings for...

    ddd oo7 liked post by RMikeD On thread : Barrel cant
    Yes, agreed. What I meant was that when you make your elevation and windage adjustments to hit the target at 600 yards, you will be effectively calibrating out the canting error just for that...

    I want to share 2 observations about my 5R 300 Win accuracy issue. 1. My better shooting earlier (0.3-0.4 MOA) was off sand bags front and rear and I always held the fore-arm of my HS Precision stock...

    Ok Nate, about Reamers. I assume you don't want one too worn or the chamber might be tight. Seems to me the parameter of interest is how much free-bore you want and the throat characteristics. I...
