Re: Recommendations for .308 Winchester Ammo in 165-168 grain range

Hornady 150 grain SST has shot MOA or better in everything I have tried it in ( Ruger American, and 2 different AR10's). That is what I use on hogs and Axis when shooting .308, Puts them down just fine. I just started handloading using Nosler Ballistic tips, which shoot the same accuracy wise, just...

Re: Recommendations for .308 Winchester Ammo in 165-168 grain range

I also suggest the Premium Federal 168gr, Match, with Sierra HPBT. I just purchased from SG Ammo, $17.00 per box, vs. about $28.00 per box at Cabelas. There are also lots of other choices out there, but this is a good one to start with. flowrie, Sorry, I should have been more specific. I doubt that...

Re: Recommendations for .308 Winchester Ammo in 165-168 grain range

With a 1:10 twist, Savage .308s really like anything topped with a 175 grain Sierra Matchking, and it will shoot those better than the 165-168s. My son has a 10FP HS Precision, and it will eat those all day long. The best commercial loads were Federal Gold Match 175 grain SMKs, and Black Hills Matc...

Recommendations for .308 Winchester Ammo in 165-168 grain range

Now that I've got the .308 (Savage Model 10 Precision Carbine) that meets my requirements, I'd like some recommendations for ammo with bullets in the 165-168 grain range. The reason I want bullets of this weight is that the barrel has a 1 in 10 twist designed for the heavier bullets and that's how S...

Re: Recommendations for a .308 with Detachable Magazine

I bought a Savage Model 10 Precision Carbine that meets all my requirements. Probably won't shoot it 'til next week, but I'll let everybody know how it does.

Re: Recommendations for a .308 with Detachable Magazine

Thanks to all of you for the recommendations. My son and my best friend both have Savage rifles so I'll take a look at them first, then Mossberg.

Recommendations for a .308 with Detachable Magazine

Would appreciate recommendations for a good, reasonably-priced (not much more than $500) rifle in .308 Winchester. Three requirements: barrel at least 20" long, detachable magazine, and a stock with either an adjustable length of pull or a wooden stock that I can have shortened. Thanks for your help...

MV of Ultramax Cowboy Ammo from a 20" Barrel

I'm shooting Ultramax .44 Mag Cowboy ammo from my Browning M92 with a 20" barrel. Ultramax states on their website that the MV is 710 fps. Although they don't state the barrel length, I'm sure that this MV is from a revolver with a 6" - 7 1/2" barrel. Can somebody give me a ballpark figure for the M...

Re: Holsters for S&W M&P 9C

Thanks for the helpful replies.

Just for everybody's info: per Blade-Tech, the 9C will not fit in their Nano holster. It's made for the Shield and, of course, the 9C is too long.

Holsters for S&W M&P 9C

Looking for a couple of holsters for my newly-acquired S&W M&P 9C: one for AIWB and one for OWB at 3:00. I'm leaning toward the Safariland ALS for the OWB and either the Blade Tech Nano, the Crossbreed Supertuck, or a Mika for AIWB.

Recommendations?

Thanks,

Re: Double-stack 9mm with the thinnest grip

Solved my problem today: bought a S&W M&P 9C. With the smallest backstrap it hardly feels any bigger than the Shield. Capacity is 11 +1, so it's about the perfect combination of capacity and size. As a plus, it's a lot easier to rack the slide. So, thanks for all the recommendations--really apprecia...

Re: Double-stack 9mm with the thinnest grip

I currently have both a Glock 43 and a S&W Shield in 9mm, but I would like more capacity--say at least 12 rounds. The problem is that I have small hands/short stubby fingers and have trouble getting a good grip on a pistol with a double-column magazine. What is the thinnest-gripped, double-column 9...

Re: Honest using rifle/ truck rifle ?

I don't normally carry a rifle in my truck; most of the time it's a revolver. I know that limits capacity, but I hate the thought of brass being flung around the cockpit, sum bouncin' off the windshield and bouncin' back into my face, goin' down behind my glasses, or down the front of my shirt.
