Re: canting reticle to allow for spin drift

I was reading an article today about a particular gun and in it was mentioned that not all bubble levels are created equal. This really surprised me due to the simple way they work. I suppose the tube the bubble is in could have non parallel walls or have a bend in it. How to determine the specs fo...

Re: You don't need a scope to get a good score

Not really, an hour later he shot another 50.010. Not as tight as the first one but still nailed it. And looking back there are a lot of 50's in his previous scores. Obviously a very good shooter.

Re: Lee Collet Neck Die

The marks on the neck are barely discernable if you size the case, rotate slightly, and size again. Not a great fan of Lee stuff but have been playing with their collet dies lately with my 223, 308W and 7.5 SR and have been reasonably happy with the outcome. Quality is a tad variable though. I have ...

Re: Hexagonal Boron Nitride

Actually bought some Isopropyl acohol the other day from Jaycar (closer to me than Bunnings). Reason for the purchase was to make a solution of WS2 for the same reason as above. I have one 6.5AI that has always been fed a diet of moly. I trialled HBN and didn't like the groups I got. To be honest I ...

Re: annealing made perfect

I have a Bench Source and have been more than happy with it. It is an extremely fast machine. I believe though Stuart Elliot may have recently trialled an auto feed for the AMP. AMPs are manufactured about 20 minutes drive fro where I live. Must have a look in one day. Have basically not bothered to...
