Bushnell Scout 1000 ARC Laser Range Finder Review

The Bushnell Scout 1000 Arc laser range finder is designed for hunters. The Scout has Bushnell’s Angle Range Compensation (ARC) technology that allows the user to quickly and accurately find the range even from angled terrain. The Bow mode gives short-range horizontal distance, while the rifle mode gives long-range distance. The rangefinder is accurate within a yard and can range up to 1000 yards against the correct type of target. The Scout 1000 is compact and lightweight, easily fitting into your shirt pocket. The Scout 1000 is weather-proof, but not waterproof, that could be an important distinction.

Konus Spotting Scope Review

Up for review today is the Konus Spotting Scope 20-60x 80mm which I purchased from Midway USA  on sale for $198.00. Midway has some of the best prices around and I have good experiences both of the times I have had to contact customer service. A decent spotting scope is a necessity for high power rifle shooting. The Konus scope has been talked about quite a bit with an assortment of good reviews, and Jim Owens seems to like it.

Stock Refinishing with Tru Oil

Not too long ago I bought one of the Civilian Marksmanship specials. The specials are remanufactured M1 Garands with new barrels and new stocks. Once mine arrived I was rather pleased with how it looked, however I needed to do something with the stock as it was essentially bare wood when I got it. I decided to use Birchwood Casey's Tru Oil on this project.

Dillon Powder Measure Tuning

I love reloading on my Dillon. I usually use it for straight wall pistol ammunition. Once it is set up and dialed in, I can crank out plenty of 9mm and 45 to feed our shooting habit. My wife even likes the Dillon as it saves money on ammo and she thinks that the sound of me reloading on the Dillon and reaching into the brass bucket reminds her of the Pink Floyd song Money.

NCStar Mark III Tactical Scope Review

Up for review this month is the NC Star Mark III Tactical Scope. I got this from Midway with a coupon for about $115. I was kind of apprehensive about this purchase as I had read a couple of not so hot reviews and I am usually of the mind that you get what you pay for. Anyhow this is a 3 to 9 variable power scope with illuminated mildot reticules. It comes with an integrated quick release weaver style mount. My intention was to put this scope one of my flat top ARs.

M1 Garand Tune-up - Tightening the Gas Cylinder

When shooting an M1 Garand and here I am talking about a service or field grade rifle not a match grade rifle, there are three areas to check. Like buying a used car there are usually a few areas you want to examine to insure the car will operate properly. Three areas to check that will ensure your Garand will shoot fairly good groups are tightness with the gas cylinder, rear sight, and stock lock-up.
