Do you neck down your brass @yorketransport

Yes, it's a simple one pass operation. I take 375 Ruger cases and run them into a 338 RCM die that's been adjusted to just kiss the shoulder. If I need to full length size the cases I just run them into a 375 Ruger FL die. I turn my necks just enough to clean them up, but my reamer cuts a no turn chamber.
can you share the specs of your reamer?

I'll dig through the pile 'o prints and see if I can find it.

Thank you sir.



Let's talk about equipment.

  Bipod vs bags
What do you prefer and why?   I am running bipod in the front and bag in the rear.  This seams to work best for me.  I have used my pack for front rest but I think I prefer the bipod.  Disclaimer: I have never used any bags made for shooting

I couldn't find my copy of the reamer print but here's the chamber portion of the QuickDesign spec sheet. I can send you the pdf of the full spec sheet too if you want it. This will match the PTG reamer marked 338/375 Ruger. If you ever want to use my reamer just let me know. :tup:


For gear I still like my Harris bipods. I've used the Atlas but they just feel like they're going to break. My favorite rear bags if I'm not hiking too far are 25# shot bags filled with cat litter. If I have to hike in a ways I'll just use my sweatshirt or something balled up under the toe of the stock.

Be sure to zero your gun using whatever gear you'll use in the field too. If I zero a rifle off of a bipod on the bench I'll hit somewhere completely different when shooting prone. With the specialty pistols I have to use the same rear bag or else my zero may be off by more than an inch at 100 yards.

This thread is full of good info!

I like a bipod if I am shooting of dirt, off a wood or concrete they seem to bounce a little. I use a LaRue. I have two bags, one for the front when I am not using a bipod usually place on top of a pack and one for the rear. Both are exactly the same, a military boot sock filled with ~5000 airsoft pellets, sock tied and then fold over itself creating two layers of fabric. I have a video if you guys are interested.

I went pellets because I want something water proof and they ended up being super light, just make sure they aren't the biodegradable kind.

Wasn't able to get pics today. I picked up a novagrade phone scope and though I was getting great video at 735 but phone died right as I was getting behind the rifle.   Phone dies fast when it gets cold!!!  Likening the phone scope except it's kinda heavy.

Let's see some target stands.

I use one of the Cloudbreak Design target stands when I set up a gong. My typical target stand is the rock face or dirt bank that I'm shooting at though. :chuckle:
