Lee Collet Die solution for 284.

I recently heard that a 7x57 Lee Collet die would work on a 284.win case so I got one and tried. At first it was a fraz short and would actually bump the shoulder back but only .001". A couple of minutes with a drill to just remove a little from the neck hole in the collet and that's it. Until ...

Graham I heard that AR2225 can have pressure "spikes" when loaded up to maximum pressure but would have thought your place were pretty moderate? Have you tried AR2217?

Re: Wellsford Victoria Energy Limit?

Shane when I last shot the Queen's there a couple of years ago the range limit was the same as Belmont and we were asked to sign a statement saying we weren't over the limit. Manual targets unless some major change.

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

I can't see any problem with brakes and magazine feeding (Where the rifle is difficult to single load) but what about rifles that cannot have the bolt removed before being cleared off the mound? We would have to have another way of saflely clearing such as remove magazine and insert a chamber flag??...

Re: Problems with CCI 450s

Well if it was me I would be a bit confused.
The top two show cratering and the bottom two barely show a strike.

Re: VRA Prize meeting

The 3 x 1000 at Bendigo today was a great shoot. A lot of fun in testing conditions but surprising to me not a really big field.
Looking forward to tomorrow.

Re: Rifle weighing scales.

I have a 10 kg electronic kitchen scale,you may need to weigh the bipod separately,take some time and care weighing as the shown weight can vary if the rifle being weighed is not on the balance point.Please leave yourself some leeway as the persons manning the official scales may not be as generous...

Rifle weighing scales.

Any better suggestions than bathroom scales for checking rifle weight after swapping barrels etc?
Kitchen scales are too light I doubt the accuracy of the bathroom scales. Something someone picked up online perhaps?

Re: Grains or grams?

I reckon keep it simple when weighing powder and stick to grains even if to just prevent mistakes. I'd rather rely on my scales than my maths.
