Whether you are looking for a competitive tactical shooting scope or something to take on a sheep hunt, its superior clarity, excellent turret tracking and lean overall weight make this optic hard to pass up.
For this trip I’m testing out my new Ivey Adjustable scope base available in MILs or MOA it makes extreme long range shots possible with the ability to add tons of elevation to the optic.
Welcome to the Muzzle Blast Podcast Ep. 4 where I sit down with Justin Crosby. Justin is an accomplished F-Class shooter and multi time national competitor placing well in the nation. I pick his brain about what he looks for in optics, what he believes makes the biggest difference in accuracy and how to read the wind.
I go over the details of this custom rifle made for PRS style and long-range competitive shooting. The rifle was built by Preferred Barrels and equipped with a Tikka T3 prefit with a taperless 900 contour, custom fluted, and cerakoted.
This is what the Tikka T3x 7mm SAUM was built for! Going further than every other tool in my safe. This trip was the entire drive behind the build and the choice of each component to carefully curate a 2,000 yard capable rig, the Vasara! (Means Hammer in Finnish where Tikka is manufactured) I have been chomping at the bit for more than a year to attempt this feat and bring you guys this video. I’m glad to share my results and bring you along the journey! Can’t wait for the next goal to crush!
Man what a great day out! The desert is green! 60° and sunny with virtually no wind. We brought some hammers and went to work on the steel at a mile!
From the first rounds fired to 60 rounds down the tube here is the update on the 7mm SAUM Tikka T3x Custom Rifle. Velocities and group sizes mostly with H1000 and the Sierra 183 Matchking bullet.
First long range trip with the Tikka T1x 22LR and I wanted to collect some data for drops at distance. My Ballistic AE chart lined up really well compared to impacts. It was very windy which created a huge challenge this far away.
This is the Breakdown!
Covering how I am doing the initial prep on my ADG brass when it is brand new. This is for my Tikka I have converted to 7mm Short action ultra magnum.
Going through the course of fire and covering how I did across the stages. Lots of fun, this was only the third time ever using my 22 so I still have lots to learn about how wind effects it and drops at each range. This is also my first competition with positional style stages that […]
Here is the Real Avid tool kit in use making many pieces one badass little one!
This is my first rimfire rifle and I’m extremely excited to have the latest offering from Tikka. This is the T1x and it has some really cool features. It does come with a premium level cost comparable to CZ 455 level of rifles. I bought this as a trainer for my big Tikka T3x and it does not disappoint. Tons of fun and I will definitely be getting into some 22LR ELR shots in future videos! I try a few brands of ammo and check group size as well as run some rounds at the dueling tree target with the wife!
I went on a trip with my brother and set up targets at 350 and 500. This is the first time really going for groups at distance with the 95g Sierra Match King. My rifle has a 1:7 twist so I was curious how stable they would be.
This was my first opportunity to test the Vortex Diamondback Tactical FFP 4-16 scope. This model is MOA with an EBR-2C reticle and matching MOA turrets which is exactly what you want in a scope, a reticle that matches the turrets. That makes measuring and dialing the correct adjustment easy. This is not my Review for the Vortex Diamond Back Tactical I want to try it a few more times before having a solid opinion on how I feel about it.
For this episode I sit down and Talk with Mrs. WDS about what it’s like dealing with myself and my constant Precision Rifle thinking or video making. We also talk about our families and when we got into firearms and how we feel about dogs! It’s a fun one that is very relaxed and an easy listen for all. Hope you enjoy and thanks to my wife for sharing!
