  2. General .308 Scope Questions

    Rifle, Shotgun and Handgun Scopes
    I am considering purchasing a tikka t3 lite in .308. I am browsing through scope options and have more questions than anything. I would like a reticle that has hold overs specifically for a .308 and adjustable magnification of about 2 - 10x. First question is about barrel length. The Tikka...
  3. Technical Explanation For Difficult Shell Extraction?

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    I am relatively new to reloading long range .308 and .338 Lapua. I had a tough time extracting shells after firing and found it was because of lube on the reloaded cartridges. After cleaning cartridges and chamber, shells extracted easily. Being a curious engineer type, does anyone have a...

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Hi, been reading the forums here for a while but this is my first post. Please forgive me if this topic has been covered - I used the search function but couldn't seem to find anything.

  5. fixing feed issues on Century Arms .308 converted MAS 36

    I’ve got a mas 36 converted to .308, the ones done by Century Arms. I’m trying to make it more practical and really correct Century’s mistakes. It’s a fun gun to take to the range so I’m pretty satisfied with it but I’d like to take it hunting every now and then. I can fix most of the issues no...

    Sweet video, 3 shot half inch group from 100 yards with a Savage Axis! This just shows you dont always need the most expensive rifle for sub MOA groups.
  7. .308 AR barrels need standards!

    Black Rifles
    I Bought 2ea .308 Winchester barrels for my LR308. Both had issues with being able to simply drop in a mid length hand guard. Returned the 1:10 5R barrel to Brownell's and kept the 16" 1:11 5R rifle from Rainier Arms. However, they both could have been better if they had changed the dimensions...

  9. Savage Model 10 .308

    Handloading Procedures/Practices
    I'm new at this so please bare with me. I purchased a Savage Model 10 with the 20 inch Bull Barrel. My dad is excellent at reloading, but has not messed with .308 a lot. He is going to show me the ropes on reloading. But Long story short, I'm going to start reloading ammunition for my Model 10...
  10. Mystery Cartridge

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    I came accross some cartridges that I've probably had for 20 years but don't know how they came into my possession. I checked Lyman and Lee cartridge specs and could not identify it. It is full metal jacket, probably Eastern Bloc military (at least I'm guessing that). The case body tapers...

    Hi guys this is my first time posting but not my first time on here I've found a lot of useful information here. Anyway, I have a Savage model 11 in .308 without the accutrigger that I can't seem to get any decent groups from. I am using the Nikon Monarch UCC BDC 3x9x40 scope and I have tried...
  12. First Deer Rifle.

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Hey everybody, I am new to this forum and am looking into getting my own first deer rifle. I have shot many calibers, and when hunting before I have had to free load and borrow either a .243 rifle or a .444 marlin from a friend.

  14. Sig 716

    Black Rifles
    I just recently purchased a Sig 716. Just wondering if any of you have experience with it. I've heard of some that won't cycle Win147gr, but read in a magazine article of the same ammo producing 0.33" groups at 100yds, with no issues.
  15. Best known scope for 200-300$ ?

    Rifle, Shotgun and Handgun Scopes
    Hi everyone, I've been shooting guns for about ten years now. But recently I've been trying using scopes for my Parker Hale 30-06 cal, as you might know it has a bit of a kick (recoil). The scopes I own are all cheap, so therefore probably won't stand for the recoil. So, I just want to ask you...

  17. Please help me identify this Mauser

    Ex-Military Rifles & Cartridges
    So I picked up a cheap Mauser rifle today that someone had butchered while trying to "sporterize" it. I figure since it's no longer original, I might look into putting a synthetic stock on it and having a bit of fun. Not sure if I'm gonna look to maybe have a new barrel put on it and a good...

  19. Best .308 for under $800?

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    What is the most accurate .308 with a 26'' bull barrel for under $800? I plan to do long range shooting out to 800 yds I have an excellent 22-250 that I can shoot .25" groups with at 100yds but past 600 it does not have enough energy. Any and all advice will be appreciated thanks.
