Re: Meplat Trimming

drilling the front will make no difference to drag. if you have burrs on the outside of the new meplat, and they are variable, that might be negative. before pointing, we only used to trim. there was an obvious reduction in b.c. as evidenced by lower point of impact. when using one trimmed bullet as...

Re: E CLASS. BUDGET F CLASS

A good concept but I have my doubts about its practicality, people will turn up with $2000 worth of fox gun with a slow twist rate that shoots 55 grain projectiles real well out to about 400 metres, and the old bloke with a $200 omark will flog them as he does now. Like it or not the gear is specia...

Re: king of 2 miles

graham, well designed bullets should go through the transonic zone with accuracy. the problem is to test for that. think dynamic stability. we all now know that the 168 gn sierra 30 cal matchking is definitely NOT such a bullet. and you are right, seeing thing at that distance is hard, and where you...

Re: Mixing powder

cliff,
they might say throw out the old powder and buy some more to replace it.

Re: Mixing powder

williada, what do you weigh when you weigh a primer? anvil + cup + propellent + other. too many variables here and all could be null and void by stacking in various directions. the primer is one thing we have no control over period. when compared to poi changes due to bending light on the way to the...

Re: SARA Queens Series

284 win, 284 shehane, 280 ackley, and others have all suffered from this. expectations of a certain velocity and loading to that rather than to sane safe pressures. when the 284 came into vogue, 6br reported guys shooting 180s at 2950 routinely. :shock: well we now know that if you want case life, 2...

Re: king of 2 miles

alan, alloy bullets can be cast and swaged to the weight and measurement consistency of modern bullets. they can be started at better e.s. than modern ammo. we can now use barrels of equal quality in black or smokeless guns, and smith both types equally as well. with black we clean between shots, so...
