Giraud Case Trimmer

In Review by Rich0 Comments

This review is long overdue, the Giraud Case Trimmer! This is the Rolls Royce of case trimmers. It is the case trimmers most other case trimmers hope to be when they grow up. It’s made right here in the USA. “What makes it so special,” you might ask? It does three things at the same time. It trims the cases to length. The trimmer adds a 15 degree chamfer to the inside of the neck for seating bullets. The Giraud also adds a 45 degree chamfer to the outside of the case rim for easy chambering. Traditionally, all three of those steps are separate operations. Which make for a longer overall processing time a the reloading bench. The Giraud Case Trimmer does all three steps in one pass, and it does a really nice job!

IDENT Marking Services

In Review by Rich2 Comments

If you haven’t heard of IDENT Marking Services, they’re a Texas based company that does laser engraving. Specifically, they can laser engrave your receiver if you plan to file a Form 1 and make yourself a short barrelled rifle (SBR). While this is usually talked about in the context of the AR15, and that’s actually what I had engraved, it can be applicable to the precision shooting crowd as well. Think about the potential for a handy, short rifle, chambered in 300BLK for hunting at shorter ranges. You could do it on an auto loader platform like an AR15 or on a bolt action like a Remington Model 7 or Model 700 receiver. With an 8-10″ barrel you would still be getting the most out of the cartridge, while having an exceptionally small package to use for closer range precision work!

Exos-Gear Bravo Series Bag

In Review by Don0 Comments

A month ago a company called Exos-Gear got a hold of us and asked if we’d be willing to give their Bravo Series bag a try. I love doing this kind of thing, especially because I love sharing my experiences, and in this case it’s positive. Exos-Gear sent me one of their Bravo Series in Olive Drab for testing, and I figured the best use for it immediately would be for use as a range bag. So let’s get through some of the preliminary stuff first.

Exos Defense Ti-7 Buttstock

In Review by Rich0 Comments

We were talking with the folks over at Exos Defense and Exos Gear recently about some products they wanted us to take a look at. I took them up on their offer to check our their Ti-7 buttstock and really liked how it turned out. For starters, their packaging is beautiful! Not that I buy products based on packaging, but it’s a nice touch when the product you shell out money for comes in good looking packaging! I was also surprised to find a whole slew of schwag in the box beyond just the stock. They also sent over their trigger guard, pistol grip, and stock support for precision work! First thing I did was bust out some tools to get everything mounted up, then I shot with the stock and accessories for a while. I took it to a qualification course at work. I even mounted a 1-4x scope on it to really try out the stock support. How did it all go? Read on!
