Got my neighbor into long range precision. So instead of a budget minded rifle he decides to go full in and bought a Barrett 98B. This is a long action rifle that is usually chambered in 338 Lapua.

Out the box Accuracy at 1000 Yards is very impressive!… Read More Barrett 98B Tactical. 308 WIN – 1000 Yard Accuracy Out of Box – 168gr Hornady BTHP Handloads

Unlike my previous TC Compass in 308 (which I sent in for repair and returned replaced), my load work ups are showing good results. Keeping the groups to 3 shots due to barrel temp on this pencil barrel, I was able to produce nearly a half MOA group with a 180gr Nosler BT bullet.
And the chronograph….laugh all you want because I was. This chronograph lasted 5 hits and has paid itself off with lots of load data collected.… Read More TC Compass 308 180gr Nosler & Varget – A Horrible Day At The Range…Ending With A Good Note
