What a difference a few weeks can make in terms of the change of seasons! A month ago we were shooting in shorts and t-shirts, and this past weekend we shot matches in long-johns, layers of clothing, and heavy jackets and bibs!
Part II of our series on measuring tools covers the care and use of a tool we all should have in our reloading kits, calipers. Calipers come in three basic types, Vernier, Dial and Digital.
What is airsoft™
Airsoft is a hobby and sport that utilizes small 6mm plastic BBs for projectiles.
One of the questions the Sinclair technical staff receives on a regular basis is how one can find the scope center height to the center line of the bore for their rifle.
As some of you are aware, this is a subject that I can talk with all of you on with some degree of authority since I am also a physically challenged shooter due to Polio.
My grandfather told me “get a good tool and take care of it and you will only have to buy it once”. The two main measuring tools we use while reloading are the one inch micrometer and the six inch dial or digital caliper.
Recently, I have had several customers ask me what barrel they should use for hunting, varmint hunting, and target shooting.
After hearing about great results that shooters have been having with the original .284 Winchester I decided to re-barrel and chamber my factory Savage F-Class 6.5mm X .284 after 1200 rounds of ¼ MOA accuracy had opened up a bit.
For generations reloaders have been trying to find the ultimate long range cartridge. Many wildcat cartridges have come and gone through the years.
On a daily basis in the Sinclair Call Center, our team of Reloading Technicians are assisting fellow reloaders with questions, suggestions, or issues they are having with their process.
Now that we have discussed sorting by various methods, once you have established your batches there are some additional steps you can take to maximize the overall performance of your bullets.
I just bought a new Remington 700 in .223 Remington for hunting woodchucks and prairie dogs. When putting a new scope on a rifle I like to set it up similar to my other rifles and also keep it simple.
