Reloading / Re: Double torch hook-up
Last post by LeadHammer -
By the way, I have everything together again and still have no gas.
It seems as the torch heads “pin” might not depress enough to activate the adapter. With the gas on, I can unscrew the torch head and take a screwdriver and manually push the valve and gas will come out. When I put it together, nothing. Soo next week I think I will load my contraption up and go store to store and try different adapters in the parking lots. Enough is enough lol.

General Discussion / Re: Shotmarker electronic targets
Last post by boltman13 -
One of the Clubs I belong to has mid range matches at 600 yds. with mostly Shotmaker ET's and one SMT.  I prefer the Shotmaker.  we have monthly matches April to November.  I have also shot at the range at Rawlins WY at 1,000 yds on Shotmakers and it was great.  I can not see any club building a new mid or long range set up and not using ET's and Shotmaker seems like the way to go.

Gunsmithing / Re: Replacement Stocks for Ruger American Predator Rifles
Last post by boltman13 -
I finally received my B&C stock in gray with black webbing.  The fit was very good.  The stock around the tang is a little proud but every thing works.  Both of my factory mags fit tightly and will not fall free when released but a slight tug on the release lever and out they come.  The rifle is slightly heavier but still light for a hunting rifle.  Hopefully the weather will let up and I can get some rounds down range and see if it shoots as great as I think it looks.

Bolt Action Rifles / Re: Savage 10 Predator????

Dan is correct as long as that's an actual vs a stock photo. I think the "predator" line came out when almost if not everything was bottom bolt release.

I thought I would give an update. I went out today and bought the 3-15x44 PST Gen 2 MRAD scope. I did go with FFP. The reason for this is that I do more target than hunting since hunting is only 2 months of the year. The illuminated reticle should compensate for the low light.
The feedback from this forum was very helpful. I called Vortex and had similar feedback that I did from this group. They recommended 4-16 or 3-15. The feedback from you guys made me stick with quality over magnification and it seems the majority of the guys I talk to and get feedback from shoot around 15-18 and only truly use the higher power when conditions are right or to verify shots. I stuck with Vortex over other companies primarily because of warranty and secondary was quality. One of the guys at my local store turned one in for warranty and 7 days from shipping it, had a new one show up on the doorstep. Their customer service just really seems to be awesome and talking on the phone with them was very pleasant.

Thank you again everybody!
