Scoping the K31 – Influential angles…
"I like K31 Swiss rifles; not fanatically, but respectfully and I thought I would scope the latest example to pass through the shop by mounting a scope rather than attempting to use the military tangent sight that can cover a target at 100 yards… a big target. Subsequently, a mouse click trip to Brownells yielded a 100-000-725WB Aluminum K31 Clamp-On Mount made by Swiss Products $74. It is a one fastener install mount with black anodized finished and a top side dovetail that is made to accommodate 3/8" dovetail mount rings…" New on Real Guns®, "Scoping the K31 – Influential angles…"
Remington’s Model 700 Quicker Twister 260 Remington Part II
"Within the public psyche, the 260 Remington is a bit like the tuna; people protest in mass to rescue cute dolphins from tuna nets, but don't think twice about eating the tuna. Within the same family of cartridges, folks love the .308 Winchester, the 7mm-08 Remington and the 243 Winchester, but often turn their collective noses up at the 260 Remington.

Remington’s Model 700 Quicker Twister 260 Remington Part I
"…The subject Model 700 SPS differs from my Model Seven in two important ways. The first is its 24" barrel which should boost 260 Remington velocity. The second is an 8" rather than 9" rifling twist which should be more effective in stabilizing relatively heavy bullets".
