Ranges or competition Do you want the ability to dial-to-range with the turrets as well as use hashmarks when appropriate, or only use hashmarks for holdover There are other considerations, too. For example, if the crosshair located in the first plane, the space between bars remains the same at all powers. Thus, a mistake in holdover or ranging will not be made by forgetting the power the scope is on. On the other hand, if the reticle is located in the second plane, while the space between each...

Rifle and handgun primers start everything going Right now it's difficult to buy any kind of primer, but there are still primers out there, for sale or barter.

Leupold replaced the dots in their Mil Dot scopes with thin bars and added a half mark to provide more precision for long range riflemen and call it the TMR.

The second day they also culled other animals, including gemsbok and both varieties of wildebeest, blue and black.

Both Lebels and Berthiers feature a distinctive, straight trigger. The 8x50R cartridge was derived from France's existing 11x59 Gras cartridge and was designed by Colonel Gras and Captain Desaleux. Refashioning an 11mm case into an 8mm cartridge created a large rimmed, steeply tapered case with a very squat and dumpy appearance. Yet, it worked in rifles and machineguns from 1886 to 1929 when it was officially replaced by the French 7.5x54mm rimless round. Loaded originally with a 232-grain...
