    Schmaltz

    I also ordered something from him that shipped last week and the tracking info said the same thing. I'm not offering an explanation...but it happened to me too, so shouldn't be cause for concern.

    Wyoming NR doe tag drawing question

    I can confirm that this is correct. I doubted whether this was right, so I called four different wyoming game and fish departments. All four told me something different than what wytex said...they all said that submitting both applications at once could get you 0, 1, or 2 tags. They were...

    First and second nonresident applications

    This helps a lot. Yes, I'd like to get as many tags as possible. I thought that your second choice would go into the draw even if your first choice was successful. But I guess that isn't the case? I guess I got confused when Washington Hunters said, "Or you can apply on separate applications so...

    First and second nonresident applications

    So I can go through the process and submit just one application, and then go in again for the second?

    First and second nonresident applications

    it's 100% first choice, 25% second choice. My question is: do the "first non Resident Reduced Antelope" and the "second non Resident Reduced Antelope" applications both enter the draw on the same footing? so if I put both my first and second applications (NOT first and second choice) in for a...

    First and second nonresident applications

    Every time I see someone asking a question about Wyoming's draw, I roll my eyes...but how the turn tables and now I'm confused... I'm applying for a type 7 reduced price antelope tag. I went through to submit my application, and it gives me the option to submit a "first non Resident Reduced...

    Load development: 100 to 200 yards

    Yeah I'm pretty sure I'm doing my part. I was shooting my tikka t3x lite in 7mm rem mag during the same range visit and was shooting 1/2-2/3" 5-shot groups. That is without a muzzle brake. The ruger american is in 223...and I have a muzzle brake one it...so it shoots like a 22. Same bench...

    Load development: 100 to 200 yards

    I'd like to think it can get better. It was shooting factory ammo (Norma tac-223) really well, .7 moa consistently, with the occasional half inch group. I shot through 400 rounds like that. I bought a bunch more and it didn't shoot anywhere near as well. Wonder if it was a different lot or...

    Load development: 100 to 200 yards

    Yes, I mean moa: .5-.7 moa at 100 and 1.12-1.35 moa at 200. "the difference could be your hold and not the load"...can you explain this?

    Load development: 100 to 200 yards

    I’m relatively new to handloading and I’ve been developing a load for my Ruger American predator in 223. Using once-fired norma brass, benchmark powder, 50gr Hornady vmax bullets. I found some chargeweights that showed promise at 100: 25.8 and 25.9 grains shot .7-.9moa at 100. Then tried out a...

    Chargemaster lite issues

    Had the chargemaster lite for a few months and I have been loving it. Worked great during that time, but lately the scale has been measuring .1 gr too high. I have a check-weight set and no matter what combinations of check-weights I use, always .1 high. I've confirmed that the check-weights are...

    What does a new Tikka T3x go for when on sale?

    I was able to get a T3x in 7mm rem mag with a blued barrel from Cabelas for $500 with a pricematch from grab-a-gun.com. They also price-matched a Leupold vx3i 4.5-14x40 CDS for $500. If you call around you can sometimes find someplace to match an online price.

    Bino Diopter Settings Question

    I don't know...I've only been out with it once and I didn't test different things at different distances. Just randomly checked the focus at different times and had to readjust. Next time I go out I'm going to check the focus of each tube at different distances.

    Bino Diopter Settings Question

    When adjusting the diopter on your binos, do you focus on an object at closer distances, say 100-200 yards, or do you choose something farther than that? Found different answers online. I just bought my first quality pair of binos, Maven B2 11x45s and whenever I check the focus of the...

    Leupold 4.5-14x40 VX 3i

    I have this scope, the 30mm version, on my Tikka t3x 7mag. I bought it in part because of the CDS system and was really hyped about it...but I never even sent the info in to Leupold to have the dial made. I thought I would make the dial using the environmental conditions of my average hunt...but...
