Finding the Right Ammunition for Long Range Shooting

0

Endless amount of time and energy has been spent attempting to find out if factory or hand-loaded ammunition for long range shooting is most effective. Throughout most of the community, long range is considered to be at least 500-600 yards out. This is where you begin to see all the variations in components of loading techniques that affect the bullet’s point of impact. Here are some ways to expand the consistency and accuracy in ammunition for long range shooting.

Check out this German WWII era MP-40 sub-machine that was spotted in Syria recently. TFB shared the pics. This isn’t the first time WWII weapons have been found in Syria and other parts of the Middle East. Remember when 5,000 STG-44 assault rifles where found in a container? 

Syrian rebels have been sighted actually using the STG-44 in combat. Even the Mosin Nagant is still being used in Syria and the M1 Garand in Lebanon.

ATF Changes Their Mind on Shouldering Stabilizing Braces

0

Remember a few years back when the ATF released their letter on Shouldering Stabilizing Braces where they said doing so makes your firearm an NFA weapon? Well according to some breaking news on TFB SB Tactical just posted a letter from the ATF showing that they have since reversed their previous stance. Now We’re not sure if this means that all braces are now ok to shoulder or just the SB Tactical (and Sig braces).

Gun Range in Your Living Room

Don’t try this at home, because Demolition Ranch already tried it. He set up a gun range in his living room. Other than the potential deadly consequences and lead exposure, this is pretty bad ass. Again, don’t try it at home, or do, it’s your living room.

Timney Sportsman Trigger For 1903A3 Reviewed

0

Timney has a reputation for making some of the best aftermarket triggers available for a wide variety of firearms, at affordable prices. They are commonly used for hunting, target and competition shooting and have built a name on high quality, adjustable triggers that greatly improve the feel and performance of a stock firearm.

I recently started a project with a Smith Corona Model 1903A3 made in 1944. I found it sporterized at a local gun shop for a great price. The metal was in great condition and I planned on replacing the stock anyways, so I jumped on the deal. It was a great rifle, and I was very satisfied with the purchase but for one issue – it had perhaps the worst trigger I had ever felt on a rifle. Although the original trigger broke at only 5 and a half pounds, it had a mile of creep and terrible staginess. It was hard to ever know when the trigger was going to break, and the only consistent way was to almost slap it through the break.

Rather than try to clean up the trigger pull myself and mess with the sear interface or any of the stock springs, I decided to price out a Timney trigger. I found that Timney offers a “Sportsman” Model which can be found for the reasonable price of around $50. I ordered it and had it in the mail a couple days later ready to install.

Long Range Shooting: Muzzle Velocity

0

It’s no secret that long-range accuracy is more difficult to achieve than short-range accuracy. Not only are mistakes amplified over the distance, but there are more factors at play. One of these factors is muzzle velocity.
