Re: A & D FX-300I advice

I have used the auto trickler and a manual power thrower to just below target weight and it is very quick and accurate, usually within a granule of powder.
My set up is the FX 300 with an electric manual trickler which is slower but ok.

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

I'll show my ignorance :)
3. - 5
4. - probably but it's still 1/2 MOA
5. - yes, well under 1/2 MOA
9. - fouling
10. - clean
14. - 1 or 3

The furnace suit is on ... blase away

Re: New to bench rest shooting

Hi Ben, Welcome to the wonderful world of shooting. You said bench rest shooting is where you are starting, what distances are you planning to shoot? There will be suitable second hand gear for you to start with but the best advice I can give you is to be patient. Use the club gear and do your resea...

I'm glad no one mentioned the above to my first 280 AI - it was very accurate at long distance and wasn't a pain to tune.
Possibly just a hummer barrel?

Barrels - like tyres are a consumable.

Re: tell me about tuners for fclass

Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong here: Pretty sure tuners were first used on 22 target rifles to get the best out of fixed factory ammo. If you go to any comp my guess is your ammo will be loaded before hand. Just like 22 ammo you won’t easily change it. So I like the idea of having an option to...
