Summer is here! Sun, lakes, pools, vacations, weddings, summer sports, and more! I understand that summer is a crazy time of the year for everyone! I hope that you had a great 4th of July!
That doesn’t stop the work at BRDGW. It’s the busy time of year building those custom rifles for the upcoming predator hunting season. Building upper receiver groups for clients. Working on some barrel projects for a couple of gentleman. Keeping the service and repair side moving smoothly. Then there’s the behind the scene projects at BRDGW. Testing and data collection on the test barrels. Which by the way, a new 243 Win test barrel will be spun up soon. Continued testing of the wildcat cartridge. Continued load development and testing for the 6 ARC, 243 win, 6 Creedmoor, and the wildcat. And, some other things in the works. All on top of piles of video that need to be edited and put on the YouTube channel. If you haven’t been to the channel, stop by and hit the subscribe! BRDGW YouTube
I’ve previously mentioned that the trend this year for barrels is carbon fiber. That has not changed. What has changed, is the ratio of carbon fiber barrels to the 416R barrels. It is now approximately a 5:1 ratio. Five carbon fiber barrels to every 416R barrel. This demand has been evident across the industry. The unfortunate result is increased lead times. I’ve been working with a very specific barrel manufacturer on the carbon barrels, and Gene has informed me that they’ve upgraded the electrical in their shop and brought in more CNC machines. Our discussions have gone well, and I’m excited to be able to speak more about this at a future time.
Client Success- Submitted Pictures
I love receiving pictures from clients of their success with BRD Gun Works rifles!
Success in the field means controlling all of the variables that you can.
Your equipment should not subtract from your shooting abilities, but should enhance and add value to your shooting. This starts with your rifle and extends to your shooting platform. Tired of watching those educated coyotes hang up out there at 200 to 300 yards, and not come in any closer? Are you trying to hose down a scattering group of pigs? With the right rifle, skill, and a tripod that is solid and steady without flex or excessive movement, those longer shots on coyotes or smoothly tracking those running pigs is made much easier.
This is where the Fatboy tripod and Invert60 ballhead enter the game. The Traverse tripod is a solid and rugged tripod that is available in 2 or 3 section legs. The 42.5mm tube diameter provides for excellent stability, while being strong and quick to deploy! Designed with features that greatly benefit the predator hunter: legs that don’t cross, lightweight at 5lbs 14oz with the bowl, a total height that is tall enough for most any terrain features, large rubberized leg locks that are easy to adjust and provide ultimate noise reduction, ½” toolless spikes that deploy quickly and easily, and it has a 100lb weight capacity. Oh, and don’t forget the lifetime warranty and the nice carrying case that is included!
The Invert60 ballhead allows for versatile shooting angles and smooth movement with its 60mm head. The 1911 (Picatinny) and ARCA Swiss adaptor make it compatible with a wide range of equipment. And, the quick release lever makes it easy to quickly attach and detach your gun, and the fine tuning adjustable tension allows for precise control. Fatboy’s excellent rubberized tension knob increases rip in all weather conditions, and also provides for very quick locking and unlocking of the ballhead with less rotational movement than other heads on the market.
