School me on reticles

Looking for a scope for an AR10. I'll use it for targets and steel mostly. Probably 100-250 yards. Could be dusk sometimes. My envelope is probably (2 or 3) to (9 or 10) by (36 to 50). Considering Zeiss, Swarovski, Vortex based on things I've read. I want clarity and light. But I'm thinking about re...

Re: Thinking about a 7.62x51 semi-auto rifle

I bought an Adams Arms SF-308 last week. It's a piston gun with an adjustable gas block. The guy I got it from had put a MagPul ACS stock on it, and upgraded the trigger. Different forearm and flash suppressor from the linked rifle. He also put 45deg flip up MBUS on it, but I forgot to try those. I ...

A revolver in 41 mag or maybe 357 - because I don't have a revolver I absolutely love my S&W 686, 4" barrel. It's very enjoyable. I'm considering a GP100 for "comparison purposes" but really for the grins. I'd think a 357 would be easier to find ammo for, so you'd use it more. Al...

Oldest daughter, youngest daughter, and I went to the range Saturday to get in some trigger time. Oldest daughter thinks it both boring and cheating to shoot at 7 yards. She generally shoots at 10-15. So, we went out to 25, put up some splatter targets, and shot for score. Little wretch outshot me. ...
