One of the corrective actions you can take it to accurately measure and adjust your headspace to help in reliable ignition, accuracy and optimal brass life. Due to the break open design and the inherent flex in the action when fired with more flex in higher pressure rounds, you cannot merely take a rimless bottleneck cartridge or even rimmed bottleneck cartridge and measure it as you would a bolt action gun.
Shooting and Ballistics Testing the Thompson Center Contender .41 Magnum 10″ pistol with Underwood 210gr. Alaskan BallisticsI’m just a regular guy who likes guns, hunting, and ballistics.
Steve’s new TC Contender chambered in 6BRM does a really good job at 1000 yards. If he would have had a few better spotter corrections he would have put a few more hits on the head for sure. Zombie Head HuntersZombie Head Hunters is a group of shooting buddies that like to test their skills […]
A few shots at the gong from the 25 yard pistol line with the Contender chambered in .30-30 Winchester.

Checking zero after a bad fall during the deer hunt. NOT GOOD!!! Jerry 19112A On A Budget
In this video we test the best load that we have found so far with our Thompsin Center Compass in 300 Winchester Magnum.
In this video we test our hunting load for 6.5 Creedmoor. The 135 gr Berger Classic Hunter with Alliant Reloder 26 are tested. We test to see if load works in our TC Compass as well as our well worn Ruger Precision Rifle.
Today we have a look at the ORYX Chassis system for the short action Thompson Center Compass. I compare some groups with the Boyd's Pro Varmint and the factory stock.
We’ve got a very good accurate load for our 357 Maximum TC Encore in the Speer 180 grain Hot Core bullet. But let’s see if we can develop an equivalent load utilizing the Lee 200 grain hard cast RNFP bullet with H110 powder… FortuneCookie45LCFortuneCookie45LC started posting videos on YouTube in 2012.

Verifying zero in preparation for the deer hunt with the T/C Compass .243 Jerry 19112A On A Budget
The barrel makers informed me that the 500 S & W barrels were not as accurate as some of their other calibers suggesting that 2″ groups at 50 yards would be the best that I could get. Hodgdon Triple Seven powder offers us our own hunting seasons, so let’s see if we can beat that […]
In this video we test the 153gr Hornady A-TIP in the Ruger Precision Rifle and the Thompson Center compass chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor. Both barrels are 1-8 twist and we want to make sure that these stabilize in the rifles before formal load test begins.

Taylon once again showing us how shooting offhand is supposed to look like. This time with his father’s custom TC Contender in 22 mag. Good shooting Taylon. If you listen closely you can hear some lovely Wyoming wind and a little bit of trash talk aimed at Brandt. Haha great job Taylon. Zombie Head HuntersZombie […]
What happens when Wyoming has a long winter and Steve is locked up in his shop for way too long? He puts together an awesome gun, that’s what! This one is a TC Contender with an EA Brown barrel chambered in 22 Mag. This could be the perfect rifle for our 500 yard rimfire zombie. […]
Match Grade Machine sent over a Thompson Center Encore Pro Hunter with one of the many custom barrels they make. This one is in 450 Bushmaster. Hunting season is opening up soon and this lethal combination may just put this rifle in your pack and bag you that trophy elk or buck.

Testing loads with the T/C Compass .243 Jerry 19112A On A Budget
In this video we complete the 5 powders (Vihtavuori N560, Alliant Reloder 23 and 26, and Hodgdon H4350 and H1000) we test to clone the Federal Gold Medal Match 190 SMK load in 300 Winchester Magnum. We study the velocity and barrel time graphs to pick our best options for out performing the factory ammunition. We evaluate our performance in quick load to see what loads might give us the best performance in our very finicky Thompson Center Compass. Winchester Brass and primers are used.
Chico working the Ruger American Predator 6.5 Creedmoor and T/C Compass 308 at the 1000 yard Range, at Dead Zero Shooting Park in Spencer, TN. This is a combination of my video and Tread's video. I think it turned out great.
Doing a little long range at Dead Zero in Spencer, TN. A Huge THANK YOU to Tread for sharing what he recorded with me.
