Re: More on Barrel Tuners

well gene beggs might be very poor and have no work ethic.
looks like he can't afford a stock at all.
with his big tuner on the end, and the plate an the barrel to rest on the bag as another tuner he is a real cop out artist.
keep safe,
bruce.

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

more thoughts on damping. many feel that a skight taper on the groove diameter, if not both bore and groove, is beneficial to accuracy. krieger will lap up to a 0.0004 taper into a barrel if requested. i have often wonderd it a potential benefit of this is that friction removing jacket material redu...

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

tony boyers loads and barrels that resist wind deflection? those point blank guys have certain advantages over long range shooters in terms of sheer accuracy. these are short bullets and slow twists. their bullets are so short, and twists so slow, they are running much lower stability than we requir...

Re: hear ye hear ye

all hail to thee oh rich.
you nailed me on that one.
the lord has smote the mighty sir tim with many 50.9s.
he deserved the full monte.
that barrel has shot something like 70% of its shots into the x ring, so it had to come.

Re: A shout out

peter,
but you must get some discount there because your shooting and load workup is excellent advertising.

hear ye hear ye

let it be known that on this day, at the barker's nest rifle range, one sir tim de manning, with great valour and fortitude, placed bullets upon a 400 yard target in such a way as to score a mighty 60.10. his most noble weapon of choice was honourably chambered in 6.5 super lr. and the lord came upo...

Re: tell me about tuners for fclass

black powder shooters studybarrel tuning in some interesting ways. one is to hit the barrel with a plastic hammer and see what patterns form in the flour that has been sprinkled on it, this shows nodes and antinodes quite clearly, but only really works with barrels that have flats for obvious reason...

Re: tell me about tuners for fclass

actually all this tuner stuff raised the subject is gene beggs' skeleton rifles. no forend, but a plate bolted ot otherwise attatched to the barrel to ride the bag. this plate could be moved forward or back to tune. no stock would allow more weight elsewhere. you would really need to have that plate...

Re: tell me about tuners for fclass

gyro, there does seem a lot of interest in this subject. it has made me do a lot of reseach, which included some reading including dave mac and williada on tuning, as well as looking at the different types of tuners. i realized i don't even know how to tune a rifle how you need to these days. if i t...

Re: tell me about tuners for fclass

having started this thread , i feel obliged to comment. it appears that most of the big users aof tuners are incommunicado. probably because it is not worth wasting words to those who do not understand, which is most of us. my main gleanig from the thread is that there is no point trying a tuner unt...
