I put a Nikon ProStaff5 2. I adjusted down and hit two very nice shots. I wrenched it back down and went to shooting. Here is an article on hot barrels. It needs some time to cool. So…I let it cool down for about 10 minutes…re-zeroed and took my time shooting between rounds. About 2 MOA but…in all honesty after nearly 30 rounds on the bench I was beat to hell by this rifle! Still…a pretty respectable group for a hunting rifle. My objective was not bullseye but grouping near bull. As you will read in the original post. I love this rifle more every time I shoot it…still getting used to the feel but man. Bench recoil is just a part of shooting…I have shot this badboy offhand and it is a dream to handle…. Given the interest and the holiday season I thought I would write a review of my newest rifle the Mossberg Patriot in the hard hitting, dangerous game cartridge. I purchased this rifle after some horse trading with my wife. The deal was set and I started looking for a rifle! I already own a Ruger M77 Hawkeye Alaskan in chambered in. After some research I settled on a rifle chambered in. The reasons are simple. With an understanding that I wanted a. After some research I stumbled upon the new Mossberg Patriot in. I was cautious as Mossberg is not as well known in the rifle market although certainly very well known in the Shotgun market as some of the other players like Remington, Winchester, Savage, and Ruger. After reading a few reviews of the new Mossberg Patriot in. The reviews were overwhelmingly positive so I figured I should at least not discount the rifle just because they are not as well known as some other brands. Given my experiences shooting the Mossberg series shotguns I felt comfortable checking out their rifles. I would say that is not far from the Mark pun intended. The first thing I noticed was the price. After purchasingthe rifle I ordered six boxes of Hornady Super performance ammo shooting grain bullets at 2,fps. For you big game hunters, this is 4, lb feet of energy! I opened the box at the dealer and the first thing I noticed was the weight of the rifle. Even my lb Wife commented that the rifle seemed very light. This is indeed a very light rifle! The listed weight is 7.

Thread: Ruger problems. Thread Tools Show Printable Version. I ran them all through the action before using for hunting. They all worked fine very effective on deerthe problem came when I took about 50 of them out to the range for practice. After about 30 shotsthey started jamming. I could barely fit some of them into the chamber and some flat out would not chamber. Has anybody encounted this problem?? Could this be due to fouling of the action or what, I wonder? I hate to think of that happening on a hunt!! Any advice would be appreciated. I've never worked with the. My first thought was that the barrel was getting ever hotter, cooking a maximum load to overdrive. But I nixed that thought, figuring you weren't doing a 30 roud burst of rapid fire. Then I wondered about a very sub-maximum load that didn't expand the case to seal out dirty gas back-flow. How "chared" and dirty was the brass after you fired it? How did the rifle act after a good cleaning? It could be a rare, but possible, case of excessive neck and chamber fouling. Curious, but just a thought. So, here's another: Barnes are soft copper alloy. They are critically picky about seating distance from the rifling. Maybe a combo of two, maybe none of these things. See if it happens with a guilding metal jacket with a heavier bullet. On the other hand, I've never fired close to 30 rounds on a trip, but a small cleaning kit might be a sound thought. Good luck, and let us know what you find. Sounds like a dirty chamber or fouled bolt face. I by the way have a Ruger.

Have you ever had a great idea, but no way of making it a reality? Then you came across it in a newspaper article or saw it in a store.

When I first read about it near the end of I thought it interesting. I found myself thinking, "Did they do the obvious and make an unbelted, non-rebated 0. Or did they try to get clever and screw it up? I had thought about such a cartridge for the past couple of years. This seemed like such an obvious solution to me. Use the 0. Instead of a belt or rebated rim, use a straight-sided case with a slight taper to the shoulder. And keep the overall length to fit a standard action size. Lo and behold, that is what Ruger and Hornady have created. Cartridge dimensions are as yet unavailable from either the Ruger or Hornady web sites. Dimensions shown were found in the January-February issue of the Rifle magazine article ". I also found slight variations in case length 2. The ballistics of the cartridge, as found on Hornady's web site, are fps for the grain bullet and fps for the grain bullet. As advertised, they slightly exceed those of the. On the other hand, they do not produce the excessive velocity and recoil of the. The Ruger Hawkeye rifles to be chambered for the new cartridge weigh from 7. With a scope mounted overall weight should be around 9 pounds. These rifles should generate in the range of 40 foot-pounds of recoil with the grain load and 45 foot-pounds for the grain load.
