This is a quick look at my new (to me) rifle scope I received today. One of the problems that I have run into lately is more rifles than scopes. I am constantly swapping scopes and moving them rifle to rifle. As most of you know I am a huge fan of Sightron scopes and […]
They say you get what you pay for and that is certainly true when it comes to firearms, but sometimes you come across somethings that break the norm. This time we review the concept of the value, budget or economy rifle. Call it what you will, these rifles will get the job done. Whether it’s […]
First look at the newly released 243 80g solid copper projectiles from Fort Scott Munitions. These rounds are designed to tumble upon impact. They make rounds for most pistol and rifle calibers.

Taking the Savage Axis 223 out to 1003 yards today. Using some Hornady 68g BTHP Match bullets on a charge of Accurate 2230. The scope is maxed out at this range, so I have to hold an additional 6 MOA. The Scope is a Sightron S-Tac 4-20x50.
This is a continuation of a video I made last spring. Link to video below. We determined a good load, now we need to see how it does at longer ranges. Shooting Hornady 68g BTHP Match Bullets using 22.5g of Accurate 2230.
Bringing out the AR-15 and the Savage Axis bolt rifle today. These are the first loads with CFE223. This was a highly recommended powder for me to try. I have decided to shoot these at 50 yards today, so the goal is 1/2 groups. These are sized to .224 and have no gas check.
This is the last of the bullets NYC Reloader sent me. I am using Varget and groups were a lot better today. I will most likely be picking up this mould in the very near future.
Time to take these rounds out to the range. Using my Savage Axis and a Sightron SiH-Tac 3-9x40
