National Rifle League – Mile High Shootout

In Blog by Rich2 Comments

This past weekend I was fortunate enough to attend the National Rifle League match in northern Colorado, the Mile High Shootout! This match was put on by Robert Quigley and a host of good folks that donated their time to make it happen! It was set in the hilly countryside about 17 miles west of Craig, Colorado! It was a great venue that offered extremely challenging wind conditions. That was all paired up with a challenging course of fire to round out maybe the most difficult match I’ve ever shot. I think there were a number of guys who walked away from it a bit humbled! It still made for a great time!

Chronographing Barrel Break In

In Blog by Rich8 Comments

We’ve had a couple articles in the past on the importance of Chronographing Barrel Break In. This is especially true when breaking in a new barrel. The first several rounds through a barrel will likely see an increase in velocity. As the small burrs and imperfections of the bore are worn in by the passing projectiles there is often a velocity increase. That matters because if you chronograph a new barrel and head to a match you’re in trouble. Chances are excellent that at some point in the first 150 rounds or so the muzzle velocity will pick up and your DOPE will be off as a result. I’ve had it happen to me at a match, no bueno. I wanted to dig into this topic a bit more, so let’s go!

Barrel Nut Installation Process

In Blog by Rich11 Comments

We’ve talked a bunch about barrel nut setups on AccuracyTech in the past. Specifically Rem/Age style barrel installations where a Savage style nut is used to install a barrel onto a Remington Action. Barrel Nut Installations are becoming more and more popular. Now you see high end, custom actions, like the Bighorn TL3 and Mausingfield being threaded for Savage style threads. This enables the user to install a barrel of their choice. The owner can set the headspace with gauges and lock everything down with the barrel nut. All of this can be done without having to ship the action off or pay the $700-$850 that a rebarrel typically costs.

The Gear Race and How to Evaluate Purchases

In Blog by Rich1 Comment

So this week we’re going to discuss the gear race. Believe me when I tell you the gear race exists. The gear race can be loosely defined as spending cash on different pieces of gear. The expectation is that in purchasing better gear you will score better and do better as a shooter. What I can tell you after eight years and counting in this sport is the gear race is alive and well. The question becomes whether or not the money invested is worth the return. For some things it can be, but for the majority…not so much.
