Cam-Over on a Reloading Press

Like many things in reloading, Cam-Over is a misunderstood and often misused term. What exactly is 'Camming Over' a press? Do they all do it? Do I need to?

How important is SD in ammunition?

Short verion - it's not really going to matter to 800 meters or so. However, those folks going for the fabled 1k, 1-mile targets... very much so.

The Crossover Rifles – a Tikka CTR and Bergara HMR

Both the rifles we are looking at today could be called 'crossover' rifles - but really, it turns out live at opposite ends of the spectrum.

Bergara B14 HMR – First Thoughts

Been keen to have a play with the Bergara B14 HMR for a while. Sorting a clients rifle gave me the opportunity to check out this offering of a 'crossover' rifle. Just another Remington 700 clone? Or something more?

The Vortex Optics Razor HD AMG 6-24×50 Riflescope Review

The Vortex AMG is their first ‘all American made’ rifle scope. A great piece of glass, and well worthy of consideration for a crossover style rifle.

If you want to shoot long range, accurately – a good scope is a requirement. Something that is optically sound, reliable, repeatable and good for field use. The Burris ticks all the boxes there.

Tier One Scope Mounts

Not much point having great optics and cheap mounting. A real case of buy once, cry once. The Tier One Monomount (also known as the Unimount).

Over the weekend, I watched two shooters scope themselves – that is, the recoil of the firearm pushes the scope back into head, above the eyebrow – generally cutting the head open. Scope Bite looks nasty, but is easy to avoid.
