re: Help my buy a .17HMR - TigerOnThe Hill
own a Tikka T1x, multiple Savage model 93 rimfires and have shot a Savage B17 in 17 WSM. I’ve never shot a Ruger Precision, but I’ve owned a Ruger 77/22 for 35 years. I’ll throw in another bolt action 17 HMR you didn’t mention, the Howa Model 1100. I’ve been happy w/ all the aforementioned rimfires...

re: Shooters ear - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]For those who still have their hearing I highly recommend plugs under muffs when practical. I know sometimes muffs are optimal for some types of shooting but usually when I don't have plugs and muffs I have plugs and am using a suppresser.[/quote] You make a good point for foam plug PLUS ear...

re: Help my buy a .17HMR - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]Have they redesigned the clips (yeah I said clips) on the Savage? Because that was a terrible design on the ones I’ve seen. The rest of the gun was fine, but the clips were a pain in the arse to lock in and didn’t feed very well.[/quote]As of 2 years ago, the magazine design has not been cha...

re: Can you baws learn Bamarep on the 350 Legend? - TigerOnThe Hill
I've never shot nor owned a 350 Legend. OTOH, before the 350 Legend there wa a wildcat known as the 357 Maximum. The two are basically the same except the parent brass for the Legend is the 223 Rem (rimless) whereas the 357 Maximum uses a lengthen 357 Magnum (rimmed). Both have the same case head an...

re: Ever Had A Scope Not Hold? - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]Just curious, but how long do y’all wait between shots to let the barrel cool? [/quote] I don't. I go on 2-3 prairie dog hunts every summer on which I usually shoot >100 rounds/day. Although I shoot 2-3 different guns each day, I don't let any of the barrels cool between shots. I a gun's pro...

re: Auburn and Kiffin shows why discretion is necessary - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]The most logical theory is that the boosters wanted Lane. Cohen didn't. So Cohen leaked the story to his boy Jon to make Lane either publicly accept the Auburn job or allow Cohen to move on to target #2. It backfired on Cohen because Lane didn't really turn down Auburn until Wednesday/ Thu...

re: Stuck casing in chamber - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]It is strange to me that the bolt was able to drop without extracting the casing. [/quote] That happened because the extractor pulled away from the bolt as you pulled the bolt away from the chamber. The forces holding the brass in the chamber were stronger than the spring holding the extra...

re: Stuck casing in chamber - TigerOnThe Hill
A case stuck in the chamber would usually indicate excessive chamber pressures. That can happen as an isolated event as even factory rounds can have a spike in chamber pressure. A bullet that's deeper in the case than usual can spike the chamber pressure. A chamber that's wet w/ oil can do the same ...
