This week’s article is on necking down 6.5×47 Lapua brass. There’s been a good bit of interest in this caliber in general. Some folks are put off by the idea of working with a Wildcat cartridge. It typically means there is some extra work to do in order to have brass ready to go for that caliber. I’m here to tell you that the brass preparation with 6×47 Lapua is exceedingly simple and pretty quick to perform. I’ll show you just how fast you can do it as well as describe the steps involved along with any that may come later in the process. Ready? Let’s get started!
This week’s article is on the evolution of tripod shooting! I thought over the next few months we would take a similar approach in another multi part series on tripod shooting. Specifically, where it came from and how it’s been evolving. We’re right in the middle of what appears to be a Quantum Leap (remember that show?) in tripod shooting technology. For the longest time guys would just grab a regular camera tripod and cook up a homemade rifle rest from a piece of PVC tubing and go to work. As positional shooting has become more popular, in large part to the Precision Rifle Series, tripod shooting itself is evolving! That’s the focus of this series of articles, the evolution of tripod shooting!
This week we’re going to be discussing Rite in the Rain paper and the benefits of using it over traditional paper when you’re out shooting! As the name implies, you can use Rite in the Rain paper when it’s wet outside and the weather isn’t cooperative with your range time. Then there’s always the questions of cost and how well it works. Whether or not it’s something you want to invest in will be up to you! For now let’s dive into more information about it and you can decide for yourself!
As we start a new year I’d like to wish all the readers a Happy New Year! It’s also fun to look back at the last year and share some of the top articles from the past year for newer readers that may have missed them. This is pulled directly from the site statistics from the software running the website. We welcome new readers to the fold all the time and often times some of our most popular articles were published at another time of the year and thus missed by the newest readers. Likewise, some of the more experienced readers will often benefit by rehashing some of the concepts previously discussed! So let’s have a look!
Today we’re going to talk a bit about two stage trigger benefits. For those a little unfamiliar with the concept a two stage trigger has a stop built into it where a single stage trigger does not. If you begin to pull a one stage trigger to the rear it will move until it eventually fires in one stage of trigger movement. With a two stage trigger when you begin to press rearward you encounter a stop, known as the break wall. Additional pressure is required to move the trigger rearward past the stop or breakwall to fire the weapon. The concept for this article is why it is advantageous to know exactly where you are in the trigger pull and precisely when the rifle will fire!
