One of the best kept secrets in accurate reloading is precise bullet seating depth. Regulating seating depth and the resulting "jump" to the rifling is widely regarded as fundamental to improved accuracy. A few thousandths of an inch change between the bullet and the rifling can make the difference between so-so accuracy and real tack-driver performance. The Lock-N-Load® O.A.L Gauge is universally acclaimed as the most accurate, easy-to-use and reliable method of obtaining that critical relationship.
To use the Lock-N-Load® O.A.L Gauge, you will need a Modified Case (sold separately) to fit your firearm's chamber and thread it onto the gauge. Hornady® offers interchangeable modified cases in most common sizes from .17 Remington up to and including 500 Nitro. These specially prepared modified cases are threaded at the case-head and have a .002" oversized neck to accept the same bullets you intend to load. This is critical, as the Lock-N-Load® O.A.L Gauge dimensions obtained will be accurate to .001" These results cannot be attained with competitive products, which use a simulated bullet with an arbitrary shape.
For all bolt-action and single-shot firearms, or any firearm with straight-line access to the chamber. This model is preferred, as it is most precise and user friendly.
Weighing in at just 584 grams (20.6 oz), the Gen 2 JoyPod is unlike any other shooting bipod on the market. Designed specifically for weight-restricted shooting classes, the JoyPod offers a unique adjustment via its joystick that is unparalleled in its precision and smoothness.
The Gen 2 model goes even further, introducing up to 14 degress of cant and an improved design that will function with up to 50lbs of weight. Each JoyPod comes with a weaver rail adapter which will allow you to mount it to any rail or accessory rail. Seperate adapters are available should you wish to run in with more then one rifle.
The PodPad is an optional extra designed for the JoyPod. It works filled or unfilled with the JoyPod's sleds to bring you back to your shooting position easily. Normally $60, if purchased with a JoyPod they are just $40.
Now in it's third generation, the MEC Contact Butt plate has become popular among shooters. Its new generation has been carefully engineered and features subtle improvements on the classic design.
When weight is critical, yet maximum performance is essential, our newest riflescope is a game-changer.
Purpose-built for the lightweight requirements of short-range Benchrest, this new addition to the CompetitionTM family also excels in precision rimfire and air-rifle applications.
By eliminating the inherent weight of a variable-power mechanism, we were able to build the Competition™ Fixed 42x44 at just 20.7 ounces…without sacrificing the stunning images produced by ED glass or the robust mechanics for which we are known.
As with every Nightforce riflescope, the adjustments (1/8 MOA per click, 10 MOA per revolution) track true and without backlash. The side parallax adjusts from 10 meters to infinity and the eyepiece focuses the etched glass reticle quickly.
This CompetitionTM model utilizes a 44mm objective lens and incorporates premium ED glass, which provides a beautiful image through the optic in any condition. The tube diameter is 30mm, with an overall length of 15.2 inches. Our fine line reticle, the CTR-2TM, and fine line with dot reticle, the CTR-3TM, are available in this model.
Enhanced high contrast engraving is easier to see with larger numbers than most other riflescopes in its class. Internally, there are 45 minutes of angle of elevation adjustment and 35 minutes of windage adjustment available.
As with every CompetitionTM riflescope, the Fixed 42x44 undergoes a rigorous inspection process, to include our legendary impact test, before it can wear the Nightforce name.
The game has changed. The Competition™ Fixed 42x44 is making the rules.
