New shooting forum

Great new forum for people who actually go shooting and don't just talk about it. Keyboard warriors need not apply!

Gear Reviews - Blog site

This is without a doubt one of the most interesting and informative websites I have ever found on shooting:

Great blog for gear reviews with real world test results. The level of detail they go into and the range of gear tested is unsurpassed.

There is a particularly good test one tactical scopes. Also, good information on what the people who are winning are using.

Does Barrel Twist Rate Affect Muzzle Velocity?

There is a good write up on 6mm-BR today of an extract from Bryan Litz's new book Modern Advancements in Long-Range Shooting.

Does Barrel Twist Rate Affect Muzzle Velocity?

The results are surprising. 5 fps for a 4" change in twist.

I've also found out you can now get some of Litz's books on a kindle.

Lapua's New Products Brass

Lapua will introduce 3 new cases to its brass line up in 2015:

  • 300 AAC Blackout (300 BLK)
  • 7mm-08 Rem
  • 8x57 JS

I'm specifically interested in the 7-08. I’ve just received my 7-08 and I’ll be doing a reloading guide for it soon.

Lapua hasn’t updated its new products page yet but read more at 6mm-BR.

The Badger Cull

I see the Antis are as well informed as ever:

Telegraph - Badger protesters target country sports like hunting and shooting

“Forthampton shooting estate is as you probably know covered in footpaths. Making the sabotage of there business very very easy, if anyone walks along the footpaths during a shoot they have to break their rifles and wait for you to go."

Rifles, for pheasants, come on! Try a bit harder with your facts please. Probably the same logic they use to argue against the cull.
