Trajectory errors, whether during or after the validation stage are usually caused by faulty inputs. The three basic inputs needed to get an accurate firing solution include the gun profile, target distance, and air density. This article will cover how to make sure air density is measured correctly and why it matters. Air density literally
This article outlines and reviews the ballistic functions of the Leica Geovid HD-B Edition 2200. It follows our main review of the HD-B Edition 2200, where we focused on general use and rangefinder performance. There’s a lot to cover with the Geovid. If you missed the first part of the review, check it out HERE.
The elk grazed slowly along the edge of an old burn. With two quick presses of a button, the Leica Geovid HD-B ranged it at 854 yards, then displayed the MOA correction needed to make the shot. I ranged that cow several times, each time getting a distance and correction. It was the first time
When I saw the Savage LRP on the shelf of a local sporting goods store, I knew it would come home with me. It wasn’t hard to guess what LRP stood for. Its heavy barrel chambered in 260 Remington, beefy action, and target trigger hinted at long range precision. That was four years ago. My
The RCBS Chargemaster Lite is a compact electronic scale with an integrated powder dispenser. It brings speed, accuracy, and convenience to the process of throwing powder charges. My first powder scale was a secondhand RCBS 10-10 beam scale. I added an RCBS Chargemaster 1500 scale to the bench over a decade ago, then a Chargemaster
Being able to quickly and efficiently reload a batch of quality ammo is a top priority for me. Once my load development is done, I don’t want to spend a lot of time at the reloading bench; I’d rather be shooting. Here’s my process for getting that done. If you ask a room full of
The question of how long to seat a bullet in relation to the barrel’s rifling is an important one. Seating depth can have a lot of influence on how well your handloads perform. Knowing how to measure for it is an essential skill. Luckily, it’s not that difficult. With a few basic measuring tools and
The question of whether or not to full-length size is one I get asked a lot. I always recommend full-length sizing the case, regardless of the rifle’s intended use. The benefits of reliability and function far outweigh any supposed downfalls. Full-length sizing means different things to different people. Some define it as returning a fired
