Lapping Scope Rings

Lapping Scope Rings!!??? This question is often asked and sometimes i have a little trouble explaining it just right. so here it is... Excessive stress is hard on everyone and everything. Precision optics are no exception and often suffer (silently) from misaligned scope rings. In spite of their seemingly rigid designs, riflescopes flex and bend, sometimes permanently. The more a scope's tube is distorted, the greater the stresses placed on its complex internal lens arrays and mechanisms. Even heavy-gauge, steel-bodied optics flex when enough pressure is applied. Unfortunately many scope rings are not all that well aligned, though it is virtually impossible to spot with the naked eye. The same goes for rails and mounting bases, often ma...  Read More

Bug Out Bag - what you need

What is a bug out bag? People get confused between a survival bag and a bug out bag.  A bug out bag is light and has the essentials.  More like an evacuation bag.  We will talk survival bags later.  This bag is light and if disaster strikes you have what you need for 72 to 96 hours.  If your house catches fire or if there is an earthquake (or worse) – you won’t have time to think and pack; you must respond immediately – within seconds. Bug Out Bags NEED to be made according region.  This bag is made more for midwestern region and south. Warmer climates.  Keep the cold temps in mind when building. Food.  You will need 4 to 5 days of it.  It needs to be light weight and high calorie.  Taste should not matter you are eating for fuel no...  Read More

.300 blackout vs. 7.62x39

Which is Better?Well, the cartridges are virtually identical ballistically when bullets of similar weight are compared and both muzzle velocity and ballistic coefficient (BC) are factored in. With bullets upward of 150/154 grains, the 7.62x39 mm’s muzzle velocities best those of the .300 Blackout by more than 200 fps at times (especially with “hotter” foreign-made loads). However, the increased BCs of the bullets used in the latter negate much of that velocity difference. For example, when comparing Hornady’s 123-grain SST Steel Case (with a BC of .295) and Nosler Match Grade 125-grain Ballistic Tip (with a BC of .366), it’s easy to see that, despite weighing 2 grains more and having a 100-fps-slower muzzle velocity (2,350 fps vs. 2,...  Read More
