    Hi everyone, I was just wondering if the ruger 10/22 loses significant power to the action while firing. I'd like to see if anyone has done tests on a ruger 10/22 vs a bolt or lever action to see if the difference is significant. Given the low power of a .22 lr round, I would imagine the way the...

    Looking at ballistics I see that the .243 has much less drop than the .308, would that also mean that the .243 is more accurate? This would mostly be a rifle used to hunt white tail. I have heard that the .243 will cause more damage to edible meat due to the higher velocity, would it really...

    Once upon a time I was a little boy that had the great pleasure to go plinking with his dad out in the woods. Working at a BSA camp in the summer I found target shooting and when I joined the army they taught me the joy that is suppressive fire. Now I am back in civilian life and have my old...

    Wife and I went to a pawn shop and spotted 2 Remington VTR rifles. I nabbed the .308 rifle for $600.00. It has been shot just a little bit, maybe 50 rounds. It is in immaculate condition. I left the .223 version behind for somebody else to buy. It came with a 3 by 9 Hawke scope mounted on it...
