    20 MOA Rail. Max Range for scope, check my math

    Kind of difficult to understand what question is being asked. I’m pretty sure that scope has 25MOA of travel per revolution of the elevation dial and 60MOA of total elevation travel. Based on needing 26.5MOA of correction to get to 1000 yards with a 100 yards zero, I bet it takes about 25MOA...

    Anybody here dealt with insurance on stolen car?

    Yes. But they didn’t even make it out of the parking spot before the computer shut the car down. They did do so much damage stealing it that they totaled it. So I didn’t have to deal with the whole are the police going to find my car or not part. Insurance companies are notorious for trying to...

    Relative Recoil Between Cartridges

    Gotcha. I don’t own a Tikka but wanted to describe how he might clearance it if needed.

    Relative Recoil Between Cartridges

    You might be able to make that stock work. You only need the recoil lug to contact the stock on the back (butt of the gun side), so dremel out the rest. The good news is no one will see your dremel hack job below the stock line. If it were a different stock material you’d bed the recoil lug...

    Colorado Ram 2021

    Man, I missed this thread too. Glad it got some visibility recently so I could find it. CONGRATS! I guess Septembers are busy hunt times not busy Hunt Talk times!

    Oh nevermind. It was so they could get their messages up high enough to post a “I don’t want your honey hole but I need your reliable CO OTC archery elk spot because I’m to lazy to even read the regulations booklet” thread.

    copper plated shot - What's the benefit

    The only reason I'd shoot bismuth is if I had an old shotgun that couldn't handle steel. Material Density (grams per cubic centimeter): Tungsten/TSS 18.1 Hevi-Shot 12.0 Lead 11.2 Bismuth 9.7 Steel 7.9 Bismuth is 23% heavier than steel, but its still 13% lighter than lead. I don't think it's...

    copper plated shot - What's the benefit

    KPY Shotshell Ballistics Calculator is the only external and terminal ballistics calculator that I know of for shotgun pellets. It gives some helpful outputs such as ballistic gel penetration for a given pellet at a given distance, etc. Inputs include shot material/density, pellet size, muzzle...

    copper plated shot - What's the benefit

    @Durango Mike is saying the shot itself is 6% antimony, 94% lead; which is much harder than pure lead. The higher the antimony, the harder the shot, the less shot deformation, the better the pattern. Or you can add additional hardness via copper or nickel plating. Similar result.

    copper plated shot - What's the benefit

    From that perspective, copper plated lead isn’t any better for the environment than regular lead. You could just play in hard mode and shoot steel. 🤣

    copper plated shot - What's the benefit

    No. It is all about protecting pellets from deformation. Now, you can do this with harder pellets (plated or otherwise harder than lead like TSS), buffer, or fancier wads. Wad is near the bottom of the list for improving patterns. Let’s look at Winchester Long Beard XR. Anyone that has shot...

    copper plated shot - What's the benefit

    They’re still majority lead, probably 99% lead. So if that plating gets damaged before being ingested then it’s going to leach out lead into whatever bird eats it. Birds digestive systems might also be able to grind through the plating; speculating here. Basically the EPA says they’re still...

    copper plated shot - What's the benefit

    Copper is harder than lead. Harder pellets = less deformation = better flight = better pattern. And Nickel is harder again than Copper. And Tungsten (TSS) is harder again than Nickel. Steel is also very hard and actually patterns quite well, it just has terrible down range energy.

    Colorado archery elk

    Is it really that difficult to read the regulations book? If that seems like too much work then I can’t help.

    2022 shed thread

    My hunting buddy just brought this matching set over for me to measure. I can't get a picture that does them justice. Crazy mass. The G4s are over 20" long and significantly larger diameter than my wrist for most of the length. They weigh around 13 pounds each. Right 165.75", left 163.5". Give...

    Tuning a Muzzlebrake

    I couldn’t perceive any difference in muzzle blast. All horrendously loud and violent, definitely needed plugs + muffs on the covered range.

    Tuning a Muzzlebrake

    I suspect the closer to the breech, the higher the effect on muzzle rise.
