So, you are interested in seeing what all the fuss is about and attending your first tactical rifle match? That’s excellent! First off, pat yourself on the back. Competition can be a little nerve racking but it’s also a ton of fun and nothing will advance you as a shooter faster than a competitive environment. You will quickly discover what gear works, what gear doesn’t, and where you do and don’t need practice with regard to your long range marksmanship skills.

This is the first of a series of shorter articles we’re hoping to post more frequently here. We plan on basing these shorter articles on common questions that come up on the Internet with regard to precision shooting. This first question we’ll address is that of torque values with regard to components on a precision rifle. Obviously, repeatability and consistency are key factors in the precision shooting world. So when and where possible, use a torque wrench to fasten any of your components.
I was able to tour their facility and see how their scopes are made, from the bare tubing all the way through the production process. Why is that interesting? Mainly because Steiner just dropped a bomb at the 2014 Sniper’s Hide Cup. They are releasing a new line of scopes to include a 3-15x and 5-25x in the new T5Xi Tactical line. The new scopes were designed, and will be almost entirely manufactured and assembled in Greeley, Colorado! The Steiner folks will still be importing the top notch glass from Germany but by producing the rest of the scope parts and components here in the United States they actually are saving money on import/export taxes and fees. They plan to pass those savings on to the Tactical Rifle consumer and in the same breath jump head first into the mid range scope market by introducing a higher quality product at an extremely competitive price.
Michael Victor over at Victor Company were nice enough to send us a whole package full of their latest products. We’ve reviewed each individual product and those reviews are an in depth look at the individual products. However, having access to all these products, we wanted to do a write up on how to upgrade your Accuracy International Chassis System with Victor Company Products so that our readers could get a sense of what to expect and what might be gained or lost by purchasing the products from Victor Company. Rather than looking at pieces we hope to give you a sense of the gross or aggregate change to your rifle by combining the whole product line and adding it to your rifle.
