  2. 308 crimp or no crimp?

    Reloading/Ammunition
    I’m new to reloading and wanted to know if I needed to crimp 308. I’m currently getting setup to reload my own 308 and the answer is all over the place on forums. I will have separate loads for my bolt and semi but I want ammo that works in both if needed. I just don’t want a lot of different...

    Firearms Gallery
    Alright.. enough talk about the coronavirus and more gun pics. We'll all feel a little better with a problem solver in our hands. I'll start out with my PTR-91 with a Zeiss Fero Z51 night vision scope from the early 90s. Nothing better to fight off a virus because "you can't hit what you...
  6. Best 308 bolt gun?

    General Firearms Discussion
    Trying to get my privileges to post so I hope this is a good way to do that. I know everything I need to know about modern firearms but haven’t been into long range bolt guns. So what are the best brands/types for long range shooting? I’m thinking 308 for more practical uses but also I’m...

    Reloading/Ammunition
    I'm looking for a source of inexpensive 308 plinkin' bullets, and found these: Reloading Supplies Good price per round, but I am not sure I want to commit to buying 1000 of them first thing. So far, I haven't found any for sale in smaller quantities. Has anybody else loaded these with good...

    MidState Firearms
    Someone gave us this box as it wouldn't work in his 308 Win. He didn't have a marlin exp, nor do we, so it's free to a good home. Would like someone who actually can use it to have it. 308 Marlin EXP. 14 rounds left. call or text me 6012019665

    Reloading/Ammunition
    I just bought my first box of .308 TMK's for my 20" 700, who's tried them and who's shot deer with them? I know it's not intended to be a "hunting" bullet but it looks like it would expand better than the SMK. J.B.
  14. Lesson Learned - 308 Charging handles

    AR's, AK's, Silencers /Class III
    I have a PSA Gen-2 PA-10 in .308, that I got a couple years ago. Of course, I have been tinkering with it ever since, gradually adding upgrades as required. One of the more recent ones is an extended charging handle which makes it much easier to load and unload a scoped rifle. Not willing to...

  16. 700 5-R in 308

    Long Guns
    I'm looking at getting a 24" 5-R in 308. Anybody have one? I like the Gen 2 since it's coated and has the oversized bolt handle. I've seen a lot of good reviews on them and they seem to be good shooters. J.B. Model 700 5-R Stainless Threaded Gen 2

  20. Advice on a Good, Affordable QD scope mount for 308 AR?

    Long Guns
    I have a Ar10 that I want to put optics on, but I want to use a one piece QD mount. Ive seen several that have good reviews, just want opinions from people that have used them in the past. (Note: Looking for 1" size, and it needs to be relatively low profile because I have a Troy Industries...
