Everybodyís a Winner or is that Whiner?

So we hold a match with a serious entry fee... say $250, and give all who enter a 3 foot tall trophy costing $100. Of course it should be made in China. They could all name the match and the year....

Cheap Ammo Match

If the idea of a match where everyone uses cheap ammo, or the same lot of cheap ammo is so appealing, go for it. Go start such a league or club match. IMHO it wont go anywhere. It would for certain...

10/22ís are finicky, at least when you seek ultimate accuracy. Iíve got two of Larryís beautiful bench rest stocks. The first was not pillared. The second was. The first is on a stock Ruger heavy...

I love 6.5x55

I have 3 of these. 1 is a Swede Mauser in 6.5x55. 2 My favorite is a Sako safari with laminated stock. Itís a bit heavy so it recoils less than a .243. 3 I also have a newer Sako with matte blueing...

I have one of those Ruger 10/22ís with the spiral outside pattern, heavy barrel on it. Not a bad gun for the approximate $350 it cost me. I have slowly been making changes on it and each change has...

What is the debate here, people? KSS St. Louis warehouse and Zander’s are the same inventory. KSS Texas is what Killough has at his own site.

Dented case, Jam, Volquartsen Rod Out of Position

I had the same problem on my Ruger action with a Volquartsen full size bolt. Every thing was fine for about 300 rounds. I don't know why, but an empty case was mangled and jammed and before I knew it...

Getting Better

Of my .22lr rifles that should be of decent accuracy, my CZ 455 is number 10 out of 10. It's the worst. I know that a lot of folks have very accurate 455's, and some have the opposite. Mine is the...

Long Time Love For Anschutz

When I moved up from a Rem 540x to Anschutz 64, my world changed. I started winning matches. Hell I started winning at Judo, too. Awe, but that was 1969, when I was 13. In the 1980's I bought a 54...
