Today on Alaskan Ballistics we’re looking at the mighty little .243. Can the 95gr Federal Fusion be an awesome little hunting round? What would you use it for? Alaskan BallisticsI’m just a regular guy who likes guns, hunting, and ballistics.

The rifle has been rethroated for my Accurate 46-415S bullet. We took it to the range and shot the upper end for a possible hunting load… from what I saw before, while hopeful, I was dubious of whether or not I would actually find a HARD hitting hunting load… Well, 58.8gr of IMR-3031 was the […]
TC Encore SSK 45-70 with IMR-3031 Well guys, I took the Encore out for a spin, and on the recommendation of Rebel and Georgiaboy44 I got a couple pounds of IMR3031 to try. QuickLOAD predicted no pressure concerns for an Encore that theoretically could be rechambered to 458WinMag, so I did a ladder from 49.3 […]
One of the corrective actions you can take it to accurately measure and adjust your headspace to help in reliable ignition, accuracy and optimal brass life. Due to the break open design and the inherent flex in the action when fired with more flex in higher pressure rounds, you cannot merely take a rimless bottleneck cartridge or even rimmed bottleneck cartridge and measure it as you would a bolt action gun.

Steve’s new TC Contender chambered in 6BRM does a really good job at 1000 yards. If he would have had a few better spotter corrections he would have put a few more hits on the head for sure. Zombie Head HuntersZombie Head Hunters is a group of shooting buddies that like to test their skills […]
A few shots at the gong from the 25 yard pistol line with the Contender chambered in .30-30 Winchester.

Checking zero after a bad fall during the deer hunt. NOT GOOD!!! Jerry 19112A On A Budget

In this video we test our hunting load for 6.5 Creedmoor. The 135 gr Berger Classic Hunter with Alliant Reloder 26 are tested. We test to see if load works in our TC Compass as well as our well worn Ruger Precision Rifle.
Today we have a look at the ORYX Chassis system for the short action Thompson Center Compass. I compare some groups with the Boyd's Pro Varmint and the factory stock.
We’ve got a very good accurate load for our 357 Maximum TC Encore in the Speer 180 grain Hot Core bullet. But let’s see if we can develop an equivalent load utilizing the Lee 200 grain hard cast RNFP bullet with H110 powder… FortuneCookie45LCFortuneCookie45LC started posting videos on YouTube in 2012. He has been a […]
Verifying zero in preparation for the deer hunt with the T/C Compass .243 Jerry 19112A On A Budget
The barrel makers informed me that the 500 S & W barrels were not as accurate as some of their other calibers suggesting that 2″ groups at 50 yards would be the best that I could get. Hodgdon Triple Seven powder offers us our own hunting seasons, so let’s see if we can beat that […]
