As it goes in life, sometimes, things need a bit of lube. Resizing brass is certainly no exception to the rule, and anyone who’s been reloading for any period of time has a sizing die somewhere on the bench with a case nearly welded to the inside and a bin full of shoulder dented cases.
Hot off the presses this morning is news that MasterPiece Arms is introducing a new rifle called the MPA 65BA-SL. The new 65BA-SL seems to be built the same as the standard 65BA, a rifle that my friend Jon fawned all over last year. He consistently got sub 3/8 MOA groups out of that rifle, […]
