My First Rifle and the Start of a Long-Range Journey (TRN Exclusive)

My First Rifle and the Start of a Long-Range Journey (TRN Exclusive)

I'm 19 years old and I have very little experience with rifles, or even hand guns at this point. I am aware of the idea of long-range shooting but truly don't know much beyond you shoot at a target that is far away. I am unfamiliar with cartridges, bullet weights and even brands of rifles. I was watching Public Enemies and see Melvin Pervice run the bolt on a Mauser 98 and think to myself, I want a bolt-action rifle. But what brand should I buy?

Continuing a quest for Precision

This will be my first post here, so hoping you all find it informative. A bit of background first though. I have been shooting for 40 years, Reloading for 20 years, Precision shooting/Benchrest shooting for about 4 years. I still don’t know a dadgum thing. Every time I think I have had an AH HAH! […]

Why a bolt action AR-10?

Hey guys, I would like to start my contributions to The Reloaders Network by answering the common questions I get asked regarding the Uintah Precision UPR-10. It is a bolt action AR-10 upper, mine is chambered for 6.5 Creedmoor. The questions I am most often asked are; Why a bolt action AR-10? Why are they so expensive? Why would I buy this when I can buy a Ruger Precision rifle for the same price?

My Official 1200 Yard Video from Utah

The wait is over and the video turned out awesome. This is the first time I have seen the target camera footage. This was filmed this past May at The Long Range Shooter's of Utah's International Milk Jug Challenge. I am using my Ruger American Predator chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor. Four shots was all it took to bust the jug. I also took home the Golden Jug Award.

The Wife ! The Muzzle Blast Podcast! Ep. 3

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!

Project Mighty Mouse Step One: 1000 Yards

Well with the load work complete and with Mighty Mouse sighted in at 100 yards it’s finally time to see if Mighty Mouse can dispatch a zombie at distance. So out to our shooting area we went. I must say I was pretty nervous once we got everything set up and it was time to […]

Quest for precision 2 -Wind, Light and Mirage

As I write this, the rains and wind from Florence pelt my home in the foothills of NC. I will get some reloading done this weekend. I will leave my techniques for loading in Part 3. I want to discuss the effects of Wind, Light and Mirage and how it affects POI (point of impact). […]

Welcome to The Reloaders Network

Hello and welcome to The Reloaders Network.  First thing, a HUGE THANKS to Loads of Bacon for all his hard work setting up this community.  This is going to be big, I have no doubt.  So recently I have been toying with the idea of starting a blog, or some kind of weekly post and […]
A Little of This and That

A Little of This and That

Range gear has a use and isn't always just some fancy thing to show off. The use of single loading devices in the M-1 is about safety as not to drop the bolt on a loaded chamber. Spotting scopes are abundant these days and there isn't any reason to go out and spend a lot of money on one for your use. Shop around and save your money for loading components. A cheaper scope may have all the features you need.
