The Everyday Sniper Episode 216 Post-Black Friday Gear Talk
Did you score on Black Friday, or did you skip the shopping altogether? I scored a few items right around the Holidays,
- Victor Company AX Rails AXHR
- ColeTac Nylon Products
- Training Time is a Happy Time
Those are the items of interest in this podcast, another area of focus is my bitch about the state of the 338LM. I think people forcing the 300gr bullet in a 338LM on us ruined the caliber for many because the heavier bullet does not work as advertised, especially with people pushing it so slow. I give my continued observations on speed overweight again, in my opinion speed wins. The 338LM should be the ultimate sniping round, but going to the 300gr bullet handicapped it by a wide margin and ruined it for a lot of people.
Go back in time and listen to some of my older podcasts on stepping down in bullet weight vs the speed gains. I think you will find speed kills and it works better when you bring the speed back into the equations. Too many shooters default to the heaviest bullet of the class, they need to revisit that and see what a lighter bullet at increased speeds will do for you.
Pretty mellow podcast, hope you enjoy,
Don't forget to comment.

The Everyday Sniper Episode 215 Jim from Prime Ammo
In this episode of the Everyday Sniper Podcast, we sit down and talk with Jim from Prime ammunition about his recently announced Group Buy on the Sniper's Hide website. Jim has a new program to offer ammunition at some amazing prices that are being offered in a group buy, crowdfunding format. This is huge for the precision rifle community and specifically the Sniper's Hide members because, it is offering 6.5CM at $1.06 and $1.14 a round, with free shipping. By crowdfunding the bulk purchase and using this same system to offer ammunition people want vs ammunition where you have no choice but to take what they give you.
A great conversation all the way around, we really lay all this out for everyone both here in the Podcast and in the Sniper's Hide Forum.
To all the Sniper's Hide members and to the listeners of the Everyday Sniper Podcast, thank you for an excellent season, great year and all the support you have given, not just me and Sniper's Hide but all the participating companies who interact with us throughout the year.
Please comment on the App, or head over to Sniper's Hide for more discussions.

Mike is here, and in this episode, we talk scopes and specifically, the Leupold HD 5 7-35x scope was on the table. MHSA had the Leupold reps there recently so he breaks down the Leupold products.
Early talking about Mike and his Night Vision night out with Adam. Adam and Mike went coyote hunting recently in the northern part of the state.
Nice to have Mike back on the podcast again, it's always good to talk to someone on the other end of the microphone.

The Everyday Sniper Episode 213 Special Surprise Guest Episode
Who we have here, what can we possibly talking about, well you have to listen to find out.
Our special guest comes as no surprise, just surprised we were able to nail him down this great edition of the Everyday Sniper Podcast. I know you will be on the edge of your seat waiting with baited breathe to hear him lay down some knowledge bombs like a B52.
Don't mind the silliness of the episode, that is what makes it fun, and if you hear one or two things which may come off offensive, have no fear, it's all in good fun.
Sit back, relax, pour a glass of whiskey even if you are driving and enjoy this edition of the Everyday Sniper Podcast.

The Everyday Sniper Episode 212 Rear Bags, Bipods, Comments
Back at it this week, I just shot a short video, did a rear bag lesson and wanted to talk about some lessons learned.
We see a lot of different shooters, situations, and equipment when teaching a class. That experience allows us to look at things happening with our precision rifle shooting on a microscopic level. We really want to breakdown this process into the smallest components possible.
So with that, we see a lot of rear bag movement which causes some vertical stringing and weird flies with guys because the bag is moving out from under the stock. Choosing the right rear bag is just as important as choosing the right scope.
Look at yourself, use your phone to film your technique and really just hyper analyze the process.
We do these podcast episodes for you the listener, and the shooter. We want you to know the, "why" behind these things we talk about every week. The why is hte most important aspect of all shooting. Answer that correctly and the rest falls into place.

The Everyday Sniper Episode 211 Vacation Fundamental Truths
I am in LA but wanted to knock out a quick podcast for everyone. I did a full day at Disney and right now I am getting ready to head to see Jim at Prime Ammo.
In this episode, I talk about the levels in our heads, thanks to a post made by Regina M on Snipers Hide. This illustrates in living color how our head works in terms of viewing the reticle through the scope.
This brings me full circle to talk levels and fundamentals. I breakdown the prone position again and how our bodies respond to different elements of our shooting.
I think this short but powerful episode will resonate with a lot of new shooters, and some open-minded older

The Everyday Sniper Episode 210 Joe Salvador of Savage Arms
As promised, here is my interview with Joe Salvador from Savage. We are really excited for Joe to be on the podcast. We often talk about a lot of companies and you never know how it will be taken. Joe reached upon hearing some of the issues we had with various Savage Rifles and wanted to address them moving forward.
Savage has been quietly paying attention and making adjustments to support the tactical precision rifle world we shoot in. I think he does a great job of laying it out where Savage is headed moving forward.
Look for them at SHOT Show in 2020 as there is new stuff announced and new products on the horizon.
Thanks for listening, thanks for sharing, and thanks for commenting.

The Everyday Sniper Episode 209 Epic Rant, Hate me, Don't use my Site
So I have absolutely nothing to say today, and I am just uploading a podcast because that is what I am supposed to do. This creates a dynamic and often volatile situation where I rant about stuff that pisses me off. So with that in mind, I drop quite a few F-bombs in this episode.
I was home yesterday on Sniper's Hide and again I was lectured about my opinion of a competition that was posted in the forum. Don't lecture me on my own website, if you don't like my opinion, go away. I did not invite myself to your house, you came to mine.
Otherwise, I don't say a lot in this episode, I am just venting about random bs.
Thanks for listening, thanks for sharing, thanks for being a part of the Everyday Sniper Podcast.
