  1. I know this has been covered, ive called Berger myself to talk to them about it but would you guys be comfortable using match bullets for hunting elk? Specifically 7Mag 168 gr. I bought a couple boxes a while back, didn't pay close attention and bought the match bullets instead of the hunting bullets. Any opinion would be appreciated. Thanks Daryl

    Berger Match bullets for Hunting

    Thanks for the thoughts guys! Appreciate it
  3. Does anyone know who the tag holders were for the December hunt in 27 south/28 North last year? If I was able to get in touch with one or both it would be fantastic. Hoping to gather some information as I look forward to scouting for an unbelievable tag. I know G&F used to give out names but no more.

    27 South 28 North Rocky Tag

    Still putting in the time scouting and trying to find some big rams for my Rocky tag. Wondering if anyone has any idea who might have one of the tags for the first hunt that starts this Friday in 27 south, 28 North. Would love to get in contact with them once they are tagged out. Thanks
  5. My dad was recently able to buy back his moms WInchester .25-20 lever action rifle that she used to shoot and hunt a little with, I had never even heard of the cartridge. Wondering if anyone has any information on where to find some ammo or brass to reload for this cartridge. Thanks!

    Vortex Razor HD Spotting Scope 20-60x Angled

    I believe it is the first generation lens but cant say for sure. Spotting scope is 2 yrs old.
  17. My gunsmith recommended that I do neck resizing only to help with accuracy. I did buy a neck resizing die and followed the instructions on the RCBS sizing die. For some reason I can't get the resized shells to chamber in my rifle. My gunsmith has said that he runs his chambers pretty close to specs. Any idea what is going on? Im just not experienced enough with neck sizing only as I have done FLS. Also, I have heard that neck sizing can increase pressures, is this true and why would that be. Thanks gentleman.

    Neck resizing question

    7 Mag. I really can't complain about the accuracy it has been fantastic but always looking for that little extra. I'll look more into the neck sizing but if it doesn't necessarily produce noticeable improvements in accuracy I probably don't really need it. Thanks for all the input!

    Neck resizing question

    Yes, the brass has been fire formed in my rifle. How do you "bump" the shoulder? I have reloaded doing the basics for most of my life but have to admit I'm not sure how to bump the shoulder.

    Neck resizing question

    Yes, I was under SAMMI specs.
  21. I haven't really done much in the way of building guns or gunsmithing but I am trying to gather the components to have a gunsmith put together another 7Mag for me. I have a question about trying to get ahold of all the parts for a Rem 700 long action. Is it really this hard to get ahold of an action without buying a Rem 700 rifle and just taking the action? It looks like in order to buy an action from Brownells you need to have a firearms license, not too mention the price for a new action. If I do buy a 700 action what could I get by with for a 7Mag? Would a .270 action be compatible to go on a 7Mag? Just FYI I have a B&C stock with the floorplate, BDL style, TImmney trigger and a Sendero barrel that I took off my other 7MAg. Thanks

    Rem 700 long action search

    How hard is it to get ahold of one of those barrels?

    Rem 700 long action search

    I've always kinda been partial to the 700 action, what are thoughts on a savage action as it was mentioned in previous reply.
