Cleaning Kit Recommendation?

(13 posts)

Hi! I just ordered my first brand new rifle, a Vanguard S2 .30-06 Sprg. synthetic package. Super excited! I need to get a new cleaning rod/kit for it. What's everybody's favourite? Also, I noticed some specify the bolt body diameter. Can anyone tell what it is on my gun?
Any other tips you want to give me, I'd be happy to hear!...

I use the Bore Tech, Dewey bore guides, Tipton ultra jags, Dewey rods, and straight mineral oil for the outside.  I use to use Rem oil and others, but most of them have a base material in them of mineral oil and an odor that I didn't want.  Several competition shooters that I know told me they switched to it years ago, and are happie...

scope fail

(14 posts)

Shooting a 300 today had a Bushnell Legend 3-9 x 40 DOA on it.  Fist shot, scope went totally out of focus.  Took a lot of adjusting to get it right.  Following that the zoom seemed off.  Also adjustments didn't seem to be fine as well.  Determined that it was me, I went through 20 rounds with at best was 1.5" - 2...

A .300 Bee is a good operational test of a scope.  I tested a Sightron S-II on my .300 Roy after a couple of seasons on my 7mm Wby before parking it on my .257 Roberts.  Never read a report about a Kahles scope failing, but I'm sure it has happened since Homo sapiens assembles them, too.

scopes for mountain rifles

(14 posts)

I tried to post this earlier but my internet died just as I was getting ready to post, so if this message is a repeat, forgive me
I am hoping to put together a lightweight rifle for rough terrain/long treks.  Does anyone hunt with a fixed power scope?  I was thinking about either a Leupold 6x or their 1.75-6 so I could mount it low....

Thanks to everyone for all the advice.  I was trying to find a coin to flip when I backed into a scope deal.  I have a cousin who is always trying to sell something.  I went over to his house and had no intention of paying real money for an off-the-rack Marlin 30-30 until I noticed it had a newer-than-the-rifle Leupold  VX3 ...

Bad math and the 26 Nosler

(21 posts)

The attention the 26 Nosler received was oh so gushy about a cartridge that tossed a .26 caliber bullet with a high ballistic coefficient at a high speed. Now, the great data is starting to get some cracks in it.

The article below shows the 140gn bullet spewed out of the 26 Nosler didn't really make the 3,300 fps at the muzzle. It ...

Assume for a minute these ballistics are true for the 26 Nosler( I doubt it). My 270 Win., if it had the prescribed 26" barrel could basically duplicate the story's velocity with same weight bullets!  90 year old chambering!

Would those of you who own and shoot rifles in metric calibers tell me which of those calibers you have, which you prefer, and why? I'm working on an article.

Good post Jameson. I think it's a great decision by Weatherby to sponsor Jessy. He seems to be a great kid and certainly pulls in a different (younger) demographic for Weatherby. Not sure if you know it or not but, Jessy just won his first Pro Motocross moto last weekend  in Indiana and ended up 3rd overall for the day. That's huge a...
