Re: Help with M99 - Scope Issue?

THe boresighter, once removed, has nothing to do with group size. That looks about like the group my 99 shot after a few rounds, with the Bushnell which came with the "kit" gun. I sent the scope back to Bushnell with a tube of KY Jelly. The rifle shoots like a dream with a Nightforce.

Re: Any problem standing my rifle on the muzzle brake in safe?

The crown of the muzzle on a 99 is about 3 inches back from the forward end of the muzzle brake. Standing the rifle on the brake won't affect accuracy, unless the rifle is dropped hard enough to shift the brake off-center... the aperture through which the bullet passes measures about 0.57" so t...

Re: Pending Commercial Release of M107A1

ok, I don't know the author of that link, but right off the bat I would have to say he has no idea what he's talking about and is most likely full of :bs: 1. The canadian's shot was 7,972 ft or about a mile and half NOT 2 miles. 2. HE wasn't using a Barrett he used a McMillan bolt-action rifle. 3. ...

Re: Pending Commercial Release of M107A1

What is the difference that makes a 107A1 more accurate ?

Anything retrofittable to an 82A1 ?

Re: Lake City or Barrett ammo?

From another forum - Below is my question to Federal and their reply. Overruns are not sub quality to anyone and if this ammo has problems with primers working loose then our combat troops are in major trouble. I could see the American Eagle I have possibly working primers out in full auto mode due ...

Re: Tea Party Movement

You got it, Bender... this was Concord and Lexington. Instead of the British Army, we have to fight the scum of America and the scum they vote into office. The Revolution took five hard and bitter years, and this one will take that long, too, but I do believe we'll prevail... we're the quiet ones, t...

Re: Question

Every time I get disgusted with what's going on in this country, and think about wide open spaces with beautiful beaches, scenery, jungles, mountains, I'm reminded that I'd have to leave my guns at home.

Screw that.

Re: Looking for .308!!!

Do check out "cupro-nickle" jackets somewhere, Google, maybe, before you buy... metal fouling issues with that stuff are why the US changed over to brass in the 1930s. From Sniper's Hide... FINALLY someone who knows the history of smokeless ammo! Steve speaks true. More below. Originally P...

Re: Spiked Bipod

Don't know what they're made of, but hairy brown doormats about an inch thick, look like made from coconut fiber, are what I use anyway with my 82 and 99 from the bench, to avoid vibration-induced inaccuracy... your spikes would just settle into one of these, probably without penetrating into the be...

Re: THERMAL IMAGING WEAPON SIGHT

People who have no use for things probably shouldn't comment too directly on things they have no use for. As for things I have a use for, the ATN PS-22 mounted in front of my Nightforce scope mounted on my AR-10 is the cat's patootie... and as Leo observed, it or something similar has three uses......
