Evaluating Rifles for Accuracy Problems (DVD)
This is a great instructional video. You can return to it as often as you like to get every detail the way you want it.
In this intensive course, Gordy Gritters, well known benchrest gunsmith and competitor, thoroughly explains rifle accuracy, including the problems that cause poor accuracy, he shows you how to completely evaluate/measure/gauge every aspect of a factory or custom rifle for accuracy problems.
He shows how to “slug” a bore to evaluate internal barrel problems, and has some terrific borescope footage that clearly shows crooked/off-center chambers, smeared lands caused by dull chamber reamers, chamber and throat “reamer chatter”, throat erosion, and other accuracy robbing problems.
Gordy then goes into detail explaining some of the best procedures used to correct all the accuracy problems in the action, barrel, stock, bedding, trigger, and other components of a rifle, including the “Big Five” things that are absolutely essential to bring out the full accuracy potential in any rifle! This is the same information that Gordy uses to help his clients win matches.
Owning this kind of resource material is invaluable.

The Liberals at YouTube don’t want you to see this.

Renowned cartridge designer, gunsmith, and AGI instructor Fred Zeglin begins this course by addressing reloading from its most basic fundamentals. This allows the new reloader to begin the process almost immediately with confidence and safety. He goes further and introduces you to tools that increase the speed and quality of the reloading process.
Popular tools offered by numerous manufacturers of reloading gear are demonstrated and explained. He also covers casting bullet techniques and advanced precision reloading for long range shooting.
Most people learn reloading strictly from a mechanical ‘monkey see, monkey do’ view point. In other words, nobody ever completely explains to them WHY operations are performed a certain way or WHAT value they have. In this course Fred shows you, from a gunsmiths perspective, what is happening to the brass when fired and when it goes through the reloading process. This information will make you a well informed reloader and if you’re a gunsmith, will help aid in diagnosing problems with your clients’ reloads and guns.
Accuracy is always the name of the game for any shooter. Fred talks about what makes a safe, accurate reload and shares simple tricks that will save you hours of trial and error at the reloading bench and range. Obviously, this translates into saving money on components as well.
