M. Werks, LLC F/TR Bipod Review

Category : Bipods, Long Range, Shooting Gear Review, Tactical, Video

The first time I spoke with Jeff at M. Werks, LLC  I called to ask him about his bipod conversion that worked with a Versa Pod mount. He told me that he was no longer producing it. I was disappointed. The options for F/TR style bipods are limited and if you have a budget, even more limited.  We agreed while talking that there was potential demand for a good F/TR style bipod.  A few weeks after our talk Jeff called me and told me he was working on a complete bipod system.  That was the begining of  the M. Werks F/TR Bipod.

Lapua Palma .308 Win – Small Primer Pocket

Category : Long Range, Reloading, SHOT Show 2010

While I was at the 2010 SHOT Show, I had the oppurtunity to stop at the Lapua booth. We discussed a few different things but the most interesting was the introduction of a new .308 match case called the Lapua Palma .308 Win.  The new case is identical to Lapua’s .308 match brass except for the primer pocket. The primer pocket in the Lapua .308 Palma will be a small rifle primer pocket. Lapua told me that during testing they were able to get Extreme Spreads (ES) much lower than with cases that had the large rifle primer pocket.

LEFT: Lapua .308 Win. Match Case RIGHT: Lapua Palma .308 Win. The flash hole is considerably smaller and will require a smaller decapping pin.

Savage 110 BA .338 Lapua – SHOT Show 2010

Category : Long Range, Rifles, SHOT Show 2010, Tactical, Video

While at the Media Day at the range we got a pretty good look at the new Savage 110 BA in .338 Lapua. The muzzle break was very effective. However, the benches at that part of the range had a steel roof over them and the blast echoing around inside was painful even with ear protection. This rifle gets a cool factor rating of 10! See our videos below of shooting the 110 BA at Media Day and also some video at the SHOT Show.
