Dope cards and drop tables – How to generate and read them. What are dope cards and how do I read them?  Don’t worry, the thought police monitoring your office computer aren’t going to flag you for researching D.O.P.E.  In the world of long-range precision rifles, the term D.O.P.E. refers to Data on Previous Engagement.  DOPE is simply a collection of ballistic information...

Red Dot Sights for your Pistol

Red Dot Sights for your Pistol

Red Dot Sights for your Pistol Red dot sights for pistols are widely accepted these days and one of the hottest topics in the industry. Old enough to remember the introduction of these for rifles the parallels are striking. Experts once called them a gaming toy never to be used “on the street”, or for “duty”, those days are long gone. Considered all but mandatory on rifles today it’s a f... Read More »

How Silent is Your Silencer?

How Silent is Your Silencer?

How Silent is Your Silencer? One of the most common questions for those looking to purchase a suppressor is “how quiet is it”.  Problem being, there is no “real” answer to that question, only speculation, some assumptions, and a whole ton load of marketing. Internet and social media experts do little else than argue this point. Too often their experience does not include using them, j... Read More »

Getting into Reloading

Getting into Reloading

Getting into Reloading Imagine a conversation with yourself in your own head that goes something like this:  Bullpup or conventional rifle….give me a break, the answer is bullpup.   What caliber should I get?…wait a minute, why limit myself, I’ve got an SRS, I can have any caliber I want, whenever I want.   Let’s see…accessories…bipod, suppressor, tool kit, etc...

The Mantis Handguard/Bipod

The Mantis Handguard/Bipod

The Mantis Handguard and Bipod One of the longest running arguments amongst the rifle community revolves around using a bipod.  My earliest sniper schools would not allow them on the range, you fired unsupported or used a bag, had a box full of various designs. Training was often dominated by outdated military doctrine at the time, just not practical for police work, or most anything else for... Read More »

The Ratchet Compensator

The Ratchet Compensator

The Ratchet Compensator Rifles used to terrify me. To be honest, I cringe at all of the viral YouTube videos that people think are funny where someone obviously untrained is holding a rifle and they get pushed back off balance and fall or lose control of the gun. My mind immediately wanders back to a story of tragedy in Georgia. A child and his father were at a shooting range with their family. Th... Read More »

Brass Prep for 6.5 – A Primer

Brass Prep for 6.5 – A Primer

Brass Prep Condition: No ammo. I was testing the Desert Tech SRS A2 in 6.5 Creedmoor, and had no ammo to shoot in it. Nobody has 6.5 Creedmoor in stock, and it’s not one I typically use so I didn’t have any on hand either. Luckily, I did have some 6.5 projectiles, powder, and primers. I acquired  some once-fired casings and then began the fun. The reloading process, especially for a new c... Read More »

QD Suppressors VS. Direct thread

QD Suppressors VS. Direct thread

QD Suppressors VS. Direct thread We keep hitting on suppressors here on the Desert Tech blog, partially because we are suckers for suppressors, and also because everybody else is also joining the trend. Some trends are just trends, but the suppressor craze is one I can get behind fully. One of the big questions many new suppressor users ask, and one that often still perplexes those of us after dec... Read More »

Buying a Riflescope

Buying a Riflescope

Buying a Riflescope Rifle optics remain one of the fastest growing markets. Dozens of very good scopes are available for every segment of the firearms industry.  Variable magnification from low to high, reticles from clear to complicated, short, compact, long, large and small you name it.  The real question is no longer can I get it, but will it work, and more importantly will it work in my cond...

How does a suppressor affect the function of my MDRX

How does a suppressor affect the function of my MDRX

How Does a Suppressor Affect the Function of my MDRX Had a friendly little chat with a local ATF field agent today, we discussed the popularity of suppressors and the huge increase in form 4’s as people buy them. Seems like just a few years ago suppressors were few and far between, but nowadays I see them everywhere I go. When we built the MDRX, one of the significant design characteristics was ...
