    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...

    Summer Scouting Question

    I have my first mule deer buck tag for a general unit in my home state of Utah this year. Is it too early to start scouting? I know scouting is always helpful to learn an area (roads, access), but as far as trying find areas that hold deer, will bucks move much between now and mid October when...

    Next step for load development - .223 Ruger American Predator

    Thanks for the encouragement! I'm .010 off the lands. Using a bipod and a rear bag rest. Factory stock, but I've free floated the barrel. Don't have a chrono to get velocity and SD. Brass is once fired, half from my rifle and half from another. Full length resized and trimmed.

    Problem with Marsupial Gear harness

    Got an email from them today: "Sorry to hear you are having issues with the pack! This is really the first time I have heard of this issue. I am not overly familiar with the outside armor of the Mavens but sounds like that is what is rubbing against the fleece. I know the Maven B2s are the...

    Next step for load development - .223 Ruger American Predator

    Don't ask me why but I bought four pounds of Benchmark so I'm going to stick with it for now lol. I'll maybe try those other powders later on. Thanks!

    Next step for load development - .223 Ruger American Predator

    But pressure signs trump the manual right? A friend told me that this Norma brass is military grade and is a bit thicker, making the powder fill more. I did notice at the heavier of the charge weights the powder filled the whole cartridge (before some vibration and tapping packed it down) To...

    Next step for load development - .223 Ruger American Predator

    I’m doing some load development for one of my new rifles, a Ruger American Predator in .223. Using once-fired norma brass, Benchmark powder, Hornady 50gr vmax, Winchester primers. CBTO 1.848. I’ve shot a number of 5 shot groups and these are the results I’ve gotten (I shot some at 200 and some...

    Problem with Marsupial Gear harness

    Just bought a MG harness and a pair of Maven B.2 11x45s (upgrades from the Badlands XR and the Vortex diamondback 10x50s). When I ordered the MG harness, I noticed they had a 2018 model and a newer version. I ordered the new one that said "New super durable fleece lining makes sliding binoculars...

    Connecting pockets to MR waistbelt

    Was about to order some waistbelt pockets when I realized the belt that came with my pintler does not have the molle webbing and is bare, like the belt pictured below. Is this normal? How do you guys with these belts attach things to them? \

    Got a problem and considering hanging up this handloading thing

    Update: I ended up just VLC chamfering and hoping for the best. Loaded up 15 rounds and shot them at 200 yards: Soooo I guess I can say that the problem is solved lol. The second photo is upside down...that is why the groups look like they are to the right of target. I want to say that the...

    How many pairs of boots

    Wow...okay I thought I was being over-the-top wanting a second pair. Anyone have any suggestions for a cheaper (<$100) brand/pair of lightweight boots with good ankle support?

    How many pairs of boots

    I started hunting last year so I had to accumulate a lot of gear very quickly. I went with a cheap pair of Lacrosse 600g insulated boots. For being a cheap pair, these have been great. Got maybe 100+ miles on them and they fit me well and with a good pair of socks keep me reasonably warm in the...

    First year elk calling

    Any particular reed or style you would recommend? Would you get multiple reeds, or one that does more than one sound?

    First year elk calling

    Started hunting last year. This fall will be my first time attempting to do any kind of calling. I'm going to have a Utah rifle cow and spike tag good for October 7-19 and a late season cow tag for December. These tags will be for one of Utah's premium LE bull elk units. Since I will not be...

    Best Binocs for under $500

    Any idea how the Maven C-series compare to the vortex diamondback 10x50? I know the mavens are better, but I'm wondering if it is enough of a difference to make the switch. I was looking at the B.2 11x45s but they may just be out of my price range. I may have to settle for c-series.

    Help a newbie find the to-the-lands length

    Panhandle precision's video on how to use the gauge covers this. He suggested tapping the modified case forward so that you can hear the shoulder hitting against the end of the throat, confirming that the modified case was fully "chambered." After I started doing that I did get more consistent...

    Help a newbie find the to-the-lands length

    I'm new to handloading and I'm having a difficult time finding what my maximum length is, both for my hunting rifle (Tikka t3x in 7 mag) and my for-fun range rifle (Ruger American Predator in 223 rem). I'm developing a load for the Ruger. I'd like to find out what the length to the lands of this...
