    M82A1 accuracy testing

    Recently got my hands on a new production M82A1 Barrett. After reading through many forums I see a lot of “knowledge individuals” talking about how inaccurate the rifle is. One even mentioned it couldn’t hit a barn from inside a barn. The last couple weeks I’ve done some testing and here are...

    Recommend an accurate, reliable handgun I can add a rail to?

    I'm a little bummed out. Got a call from my gunsmith. He said he was not recommending adding the rail to my S&W 19-3 revolver. Now I'm thinking about selling it and getting another handgun. I love my 19-3 because it is a revolver and therefore shoots reliably. And because it's fairly accurate...

    OLD Marlin 60 & Accuracy Issue

    My Marlin 60 was the very first firearm given to me; so ~40 years old now. Until a few months ago, it sat unfired for more than 25 years. After a thorough cleaning and lube job, I fired it and tested several ammo types. The bullets flew everywhere. At 50 yards, I would get one hit near target...

    30 Rounds Of .223 Reloads For An Accuracy Test

    I would like an experienced shooter to test these and compare them to your current load. Even though I shoot off a bi-pod, I am on heart meds and they cause my hands to shake a bit. So I really need some one with steady hands to evaluate these. A chrono would be a plus, but not required. I have...

    Improved Accuracy with Laser

    I have never used a laser on a pistol until a recent purchase: P938 9mm with an integrated CT red laser. I LOVE IT. A couple of flyers as I was getting used to the 1911-style trigger. The pistol didn't seem to care whether I used 115gr or 147gr. Target at 21 feet. I didn't have a tiny torx screw...

    Time to redefine accuracy...Mini 14 surprise

    So was at the range with my Mini 14 again yesterday. Hooked up with a shooting buddy, and one of the targets he brought along was a 12" steel gong that he set at the 300 yard line. I was playing around with my Mini at the 50 yard line, while he was banging away with his 7mm-08 on the gong...

    Reliability and accuracy of Ruger Mark IV 22/45 Lite?

    I was dreaming about new plinker Kel-Tec CP33, but it seems like the pistol will be outlawed in WA before distributors get it. Therefore, I am considering Ruger Mark IV 22/45 Lite. Will appreciate all opinions regarding its reliability and accuracy.

    MOA Accuracy vs Investment to Get There

    How do you decide what accuracy is worth cost wise in a particular rifle? For example if you purchase a budget hunting rifle and it achieves 1 MOA out of the box with an ammo it likes, how do you decide how much to spend to cut that down to 1/2 MOA, 1/4 MOA or even one ragged hole?

    Finding that "one hole" accuracy.

    It was mid-may when I set up to shoot a 200 yard target at the range out back of the place. By the time I was ready at noon the temperature was a mild 75 degrees. I rode the Rhino downrange and stapled a solitary target to the frameworks. Dead center was a black one inch paster. My shooting...

    Upgrading from synthetic stock

    Has anyone changed from a standard synthetic to a chassis system or better yet, a nice wooden varmint or bench rest stock and compared their bench rest shot groups before and after? I've got a new Bergara B-14 hunter and installed a cheapo 20 dollar "vlife" bi-pod on it. Today I noticed that...

    Could this cause accuracy and consistency issues in an AR10?

    Well I think I may have finally figured out why I’m not getting the consistency and/or accuracy out of my Mega Maten AR10 build. I was blaming it on a bad Mega barrel until recently. I was removing the muzzle brake because I wanted to try something different and I discovered this! It looks like...
