  1. Cheap Bolt Action Recommendation?

    Rifle Discussion
    I want to buy my first gun and I want a bolt action rifle. I want the gun to be cheap, but more importantly I want the ammo to be cheap. I want a larger caliber like a .308. I have several hours of shooting experience and I loved shooting my father's Mouser .308 the other day, which is what I'm...
  2. Is the bullet supposed to be wedged in the barrel?

    Rifle Discussion
    So I bought a Savage Axis II XP two days ago, chambered in .308 Winchester. Everything is fine.. bolt, trigger (especially the Accutrigger :wink:), and cycling is well, pretty solid for a "budget rifle". However, I noticed that sometimes the cartridge wouldn't extract, which led me to think that...

  4. Ruger Gunsight .308 Scout w/ Leupold 4-12x @ 100yds.

    Shooting Reports
    Shooting Federal 168 grain hpbt, all bullets landed within a group about the size of a watch dial. I am not much of a shot, so I figure a marksman would do better. Granted that this is good ammo, I think the take away is that the short 16" barrel is pretty accurate. I had been concerned about...

  9. Unique One Of A Kind Rifle

    Rifle Discussion
    I've got this idea in my head to get a custom rifle to go on a hunting trip. Thing is, it's litterally like nothing else I've EVER seen. I want to get a lever action rifle, modernize it with a clip, switch it over to .308 ammo to give it a longer range and more accuracy than any current...
