224 Valkyrie Remington 700 Build P4: Muzzle Threading and Barrel Install

Here’s my philosophy: why not have a threaded muzzle? If you want to use a muzzle brake or a suppressor, you’re all set! If you don’t use a muzzle device, you put a thread protector on, and you’re good to go. So now that we’ve completed the breech-end barrel work, let’s move on to the […]

Winchester 70 Rebarrel Part 1: Overview

Also published on our sister website http://makingwithmetal.com Metalworking and shooting are both passions of mine, so it follows that gunsmithing would be a natural fit. For me, here’s a powerful draw towards gunsmithing projects that involve accurizing, enhancing, and re-building firearms. So when I discovered that my Winchester Model 70 Heavy Varmint 22-250 rifle needed a […]

Expanded 10-Shot Load Development for 6.5 Creedmoor

Loading your own ammunition enables you to achieve results with your rifles that are simply not possible with factory ammunition. The key to achieving optimal results is the painstaking process of load development for each scenario and firearm you  need to load ammunition for. Here’s the big challenge: there are so many variables you can […]

RCBS Full-Length Competition Die Set in .243 Winchester

One of the great things about reloading ammunition is the wide variety of tools, equipment, components, cartridges, and firearms that you get to work with. Just when you think you’ve tried everything, you learn of a new powder, cartridge (Ex: 22 Nosler, sounds interesting!), press, rifle, or bullet. That’s what makes shooting and reloading a […]

New 6.5 Creedmoor Ammunition from Norma

Norma is known for their high quality brass and ammunition, I’ve used Norma brass for precision reloading in calibers like .30-06 with great results. Recently, I saw that Norma had announced a new addition to their Professional Hunter lineup of ammunition: in 6.5 Creedmoor! I thought I should try some out with the Ruger Precision […]

Overview: Inline Fabrication UltraMount

One of the most important aspects of setting up your reloading press is to ensure you have a SOLID press mounting configuration. There can be NO weak link. The bench must be solid, the mount must be solid, and the press must solidly bolt down to the mount. You can’t afford to have any flex […]

Hands-on with the new L.E. Wilson Case Gage Depth Micrometer

One of the most critical aspects of reloading rifle ammunition is proper sizing. First, you need to have a good sizing die for the cartridge you are reloading. Second, you need to setup your sizing die for optimal functioning (Ex: feeding in an autoloader) and accuracy/precision. While it may sound simple to setup a sizing […]

Bushnell Elite Tactical 1 Mile Rangefinder: Unboxing and Overview

When it comes to long-distance precision shooting, there are some tools you can live without, and others that are just mandatory. A good laser rangefinder falls into the “mandatory” category if you are serious about long-distance shooting in the field where target distances and angles are not pre-defined. I’ve been pushing my shooting out further […]

Overview: New Enduron Powders from IMR

It’s always exciting to see new reloading products that make things “that much better”. That was my first impression when trying Hodgdon’s CFE-223 and CFE-Pistol powders. These powders have performed great, and I love the fact that copper de-fouling is “built in”. There’s a new crop of powders from IMR that feature copper de-fouling plus […]

I’ll admit, I’m having a hard time being patient when it comes to getting started with the Hornady Lock-N-Load Iron Press.

Converting Weaver Bases to Accept Picatinny Scope Rings

Why do we have standards that are “close but not quite compatible”? I ask myself that frequently when it comes to technology, tools, and firearms. I ran into this exact issue a few days ago when I went to install a scope on my TC Compass. The only scope rings I had that would work […]
