AccuracyTech Goes on the Road: Part 3 Criterion Barrels

In Blog by Don3 Comments

Hey guys, it’s your favorite Viking raider again. Continuing the saga of his journey to Wisconsin. Last I ended where I was rushing off to make it to my next destination, Germantown Wisconsin the home of Criterion Barrels. I left Vortex at 11, and it is roughly 1 hour 45 minutes to Criterion Barrels, and on the way I stopped and grabbed a rather lovely pork tenderloin sandwich for lunch. In addition I found out just how completely rotten the Apple maps app is when it comes to Wisconsin’s completely screwy addresses, which lead to my car nearly getting stuck in the mud on the side of a road that I pulled over on to try and figure out exactly where I needed. Combine this with an emergency pit stop to tank up the car, and I was running a bit late.

Wildcat Cartridges

In Blog by Rich0 Comments

What’s a wildcat cartridge? In simple terms, it’s a way of creating a new cartridge or caliber, by tweaking some aspect of an existing caliber. An easy example are Ackley Improved calibers. The idea is by making a steeper shoulder angle, you can have more straight body in the case, and more capacity. So an Ackley Improved 243 Winchester can be formed by firing a 243 Winchester case in a barrel with the Ackley Improved chamber. As pressure in the case rises, and the brass heats up, it will expand to fill empty space. You may have heard of ‘blowing the shoulder out’ which is what you would be doing. Wildcats can be created by tweaking many aspects of the case. Some are worth the trouble, some aren’t, and we’re going to discuss some of the advantages and pitfalls!

Ruger Precision Rifle: Part 1

In Blog by Don11 Comments

Hey guys, it’s your favorite bearded Norseman from the north again. This time I’m here to talk about the Ruger Precision Rifle, the good, the bad, and the ugly.

The very first thing I need to do is point out that this is a rifle people are either going to love or hate. There really doesn’t seem to be any between with people. Well that’s not entirely true because I was definitely ready to love it, but hated some things about it. Now that I’ve had some time with it to change the things I didn’t like about it, I’m actually pretty happy with it. I’m going to start with what I think are the problems, and what I’ve done to change it around and improve it.
