Bolt Action Rifles / Re: Best factory rifle in 6.5 creemoor
Last post by Cold Trigger Finger -
I'm with Jack.  Pheromones cast from a Alpha dog, even an old and broken one, rile the Cougars and Bobcats.   :))

What's a Bobcat ?


  So, the OP has about a pickup load of options.
  It is just AWESOME!!! to see All these factory rifles available.
 And there is a bunch that haven't been mentioned yet. Like the Mossberg Patriot, Savage Axis , I don't remember if anyone mentioned the Browning ? Bolt , Hells Canyon Speed . I see Remington is making a Model 700 in 6.5 Creedmoor.
 Anymore , the short list seems to be , who doesn't make a 6.5 Creedmoor.
  I would say that was a successful cartridge !
  Quite different from when I joined this Forum.

General Discussion / Re: 6.5 Creedmoor - Good News for Lefties

The main down-side to shooting a RH gun from your left shoulder is, safety. Most of these guns are designed to direct hot gases away from the shooter if you have a case rupture.... however, if you are LH shooting a RH gun, hot gases will be directed right into your face.... now, what are the odds you will have a case rupture in your lifetime? I'm thinking very small, even for some of the high-volume shooters reading this post.... nonetheless, case ruptures do happen (there's a reason I put my seat belt on when I'm driving down the road...  just in case).

Cool that Bergara is coming out with a LH rig..... I'll have to take a close look at that. Currently my heart sings for a Sako 85 in 6.5x55 either in a Hunter or even the cool Bavarian configuration - unfortunately, in the U.S. market the only LH Sako 85s are long actions, you can't get a short action here let alone 6.5 creed, but I do believe they make LH 260 Rems for the European market.... how much is plane fair to Stockholm?

My shooting buddy is left handed. I don’t understand it but when shooting prone he prefers a right handed bolt.

Yes, through the years I have shot left handed with a right hand bolt, for hunting, not bad at all.  The only thing that seems to be different in the PRS type of shooting is letting go of the rear support (to cycle bolt) messes with staying on target.

Gunsmithing / Re: Stealth scratching brasss
Last post by mnbogboy -
My best guess is sharp corners left after machining.  They are especially troublesome with my A.I.s (brass tends to wedge).  Easiest to "file" off this/these sharp corners with the barrel removed.  Can be done with barrel on but filing contamination is a PITA to clean out.
Good luck,
Randy

Controlled round feed is the only way to go for a serious hunting rifle.   Push feeds are good for competition and sitting in a blind waiting for a white tail to wander by.

If it has to work first time every time and your life may depend on it, then the Mauser is the way to go.
