re: Need help choosing a gun
Posted by TigerOnThe Hill on 4/16 at 2:46 pm
Yeah, I'm confused where the SR-762 came from, as well. Since none of the choices would really interest me, I'd just go for which ever has the highest resale value and then trade it for whatever you DO want....

re: Map of gun manufacturers moving to the south
Posted by TigerOnThe Hill on 4/8 at 5:16 pm
Interesting map. Thanks for sharing it. Small clarification: It's accurate to say that historically speaking, a number of gun makers have moved to the south over some years. OTOH, a number of the gun manufacturers in the map have not moved to the south in response to recent events since they've alre...

re: Muzzle brake discussion.
Posted by TigerOnThe Hill on 3/15 at 3:25 pm
Interesting video. It appears as if that particular brake is not well balanced in that there's too much downward force exerted on the muzzle. Seems like a well balanced MB w/ a top port would minimize or cancel the muzzle rise, keeping the barrel in a horizontal position; OTOH, this particular MB h...

BP, Here's a good article about Muzzle Brakes in general. http://www.chuckhawks.com/muzzle_brakes.htm Cliff's Notes version. The screw on type MBs, e.g. the BOSS, don't have any effect of muzzle velocity. The other type that consists of holes or slots cut into the end of the barrel, e.g. Magna-...

I've got two T/C Contender barrels w/ muzzlebreaks: a 375 JDJ (270 gr bullet at 2300 fps) and a 338 JDJ #2 (180 gr bullet at 2500 fps). Both of mine seem louder w/ the MB. I don't think there's any significant change in muzzle velocity when a MB is attached to the barrel vs unattached. Savage used t...

Between the two choices, I'd go 270 Win. hands down. Start w/ reduced recoil loads until you're confident he has good shooting habits off the bench. OTOH, my personal rec is to get a 260 Rem, 7-08 Rem or 308 Win and start your son(s) out on reduced recoil loads. A reduced recoil 308 Win actually ...
