I thought Id pass along some info on the 2 CMP 40x heavies I got last week. The rifles are in pretty good shape, but there are a lot dings and dents on the stocks. Metal is good overall, but there...

A few years ago, some of the BSA scopes (Platinum and possibly others) were made Japan and were pretty high quality. All of them that I've seen in the last few years have been made in China and are...

I pretty much agree with everything that my buddies have said above. However, I do sometimes practice with a lower grade of ammo than I use in matches. I'm a little different in this respect,...

Velocity numbers werent' put on boxes of Match EPS until last year. The lot you mentioned was produced in 2002, so I'm almost certain you won't be able to get the velocity if Bob doesn't have it in...

Larry, what you say is true, but until March 1, CMP will sell only to CMP affiliated clubs. Hopefully there will be plenty of these fine rifles to go around.

I agree with my friend Gary. Both are great scopes, but the Sightron tracks better and is easier to adjust. The knobs turn really hard on my Weaver--much easier on the Sightron.

Benchmark Rifle Barrels: 1-360-652-2594. Ask for Ron. He's a fine guy, and will build you a barrel and have it at your doorstep in 3 weeks or so.

Well, I've got lots of plans. One is to shoot the new barrel on my Time until I've learned it. I've only shot it in one match, and ended up winning with it. But I still don't know it as well as I...

Ken, you were one of the ones I was thinking about. As a general rule, the guys that hold their rifles usually shoot with the bag pretty far forward. I hold my sporter, and shoot it with the bag...

Like Gary said, there's no hard and fast rule here. I've seen some really good shooters that keep the bag just about as far forward as it will go without hitting the pistol grip. But most folks...

What TangoTwo says is true. You say you want a "pure" bench gun. Well, there are no factory rifles that I know of, old or new, that are set up for pure bench work. Remington made some 40xs that...

Buzzsaw, you probably don't have too much sand in there--the bags tend to stretch over time, and I really believe it's impossible to pack them too tight when they are new. Just whop it down on the...

I know it's not recommended, but I shoot a lot with 1 eye closed. It really depends on the conditions. If it's windy, I shoot with both eyes open and watch the flags with the off eye. When it's...

Even the cheapest of ammos will consistently hit an 8" bull at 100 yards. Sounds like you have other problems. I would wait until next week when you get your new barrel and stock, and see how the...
