Re: 6.5 PRC

alan, what about the 277 sig case with steel case heads.
it can apparently be loaded to 80.000 psi.
that would let you go to the next node up!

Re: 6.5 PRC

not sure of the case capacity of this round. if it approaches or exceeds the 6.5x284, talk to some of the fclass old timers about barrel life. strangely enough, most but not all 6,5x 284s shot their best with 2209, a powder that was too fast burning to give full ballistic capability. the 6.5 super l...

Re: WTB - Trigger Shoe for Jewell BR

will a trigger shoe add enough weight to make a jewell br dangerous?
generally speaking superlight triggers have more feel if they are a bit thinner.
trigger shoes were more an attempt to make overweight triggers feel lighter.

Re: Flagpoles

an interesting story re flagpole maintainance. years ago sara had a group of students from a school paint the poles as part of a subject they were doing, and paid them for it. outwardly a very beneficial thing for both parties. only problem was that the political correctness department of the educat...

Re: WTB - Books

i have found some of fosters suggestions re annealing projectiles and bedding a little left of center,
but you have to digest stuff and work out what to spit out again.

Re: Flagpoles

ah the old flagpole problem. like most things on many ranges in my experience few seem to care about the problem until it tips over the top. we are all taught the wrapping the ropes around the pole when pulling the flags down stops them flogging on the poles and damaging any protective surface that ...

Re: WTB - Books

i can recommend the book by bill hambly-clark.
it removes the mysticism that has crept into rifle shooting, explaining how rifle accuracy works in simple terms.

Re: Zeroing for ETs

yes alan.
but how do you put it to the latter group when they actually argue black and blue.
probably this thread is about having a system that works.

Re: Zeroing for ETs

here is a thing i have actually witnessed. at a longer range i saw a guy bore sight a rifle prior to engaging an et. it became apparent that the barrel was pointing directly at the target with the scope also on the target. no attempt was made to allow for drop. any one who has ever looked through a ...

Re: Zeroing for ETs

if people could be relied on to actually activate their brains, no discussion would be necessary on this subject. anyone should be able to zero a rifle in such a way that a sight adjustment will put them on a target. problem is there still does not seem to be a cure for stupid. and when one seems to...

Re: Are any Aussies using Haverkamp actions?

hi adam, the actual bedding which is really the front portion, looks potentially sound in concept. and the design offers a long wheelbase between bags. the attachment of the butt does not look good for using the rifle to get up off the mound when your knees have gone. luckily this weak point in that...

Re: Are any Aussies using Haverkamp actions?

if i were using that action, first choice would be to glue it in with clearance on the rear. glue ins have a lot more to offer than some realize. there are more powerful forces at work here than some realize. for conventional bedding i would want a crossbolt behind the front recoil surface, and clea...
