Re: Sierra or Berger

I have found 2156 normally have 2 or 3 distinct "batches" in a 500 box which means you have to sort them. Measured a few boxes of berger 155.5 and they didnt have that problem. I dont sort bergers anymore as the differences were too small I'll throw another option in there for you. Several...

Re: WTB bushing bump neck sizing die .308

You can get different size mandrels for the lee, and if you want more tension you can always turn them down.
Redding body die and lee collet is surprisingly popular and consistent combination

Re: Abrasive cleaners and copper fouling

Thanks for the comments Frank. I do remember the death of the barrel with abrasive on a brush, and have been as careful not to replicate. I apply paste with a patch on jag only (no brush) only doing a couple of patches, and only every 500 to 600 rounds. It really does appear from my experience bring...

Re: Abrasive cleaners and copper fouling

Just to clarify, maybe I should call it copper trace rather than fouling, and is not at all bad, just noticeably more than prior to pasting. (And less than my last barrel) I only ran two Iosso patches down the barrel (6 or so passes each patch) so dont really think I overdid it, and am as always awa...

Re: Abrasive cleaners and copper fouling

Thanks Gyro, some interesting comments on that thread, and pretty well what I have heard before. I have always used abrasives very sparingly, and only every few hundred rounds to get rid of carbon buildup. What I did find interestingly was the change in the amount of copper being removed, and obviou...

Re: Abrasive cleaners and copper fouling

Any abrasive paste ( even the finest ) will put micro scratches on the barrel, which in turn pick up copper. Solution--don't use abrasive paste --except in a case of " have to " ie a badly fouled barrel. I would have have thought that either button or cut rifeling would have put deeper sc...

Abrasive cleaners and copper fouling

Last year I got a new rifle/barrel and was pleasantly surprised at how little copper fouling it experienced. My old Madco barrel used to give me a heap of blue patches with boretech eliminator, but would eventually clean up (was approaching 5,000 rounds), and was still shooting well. The new barrel ...

Re: How to hit the bullseye at 900 yd?

Hopefully there are some knowledgeable people at your new club that ate willing to do some coaching for new shooters. Gear setup is a big part of consistent scores, as you have said .. holding the gun. That part will come with practice and getting your rifle setup correctly (some good fclass specifi...

Gosford OPM - Sunday 21st October

Hi All Its that time again, the Gosford OPM is in a few weeks. As in all last years, we run 3 x 500m ranges (2+10, 2+10, 2+15) to avoid having to shift gear up the ranges, and enable us to get through all the ranges as quickly as we can. We will be shooting under covers on a synthetic grass mound (n...

Re: Tall Gun Safe

You will find that the ammo box in the top of most safes are only a tack welded piece of sheet steel. A lump hammer and a cold chisel quickly converts a safe with an ammo box into a "long" safe with no ammo box. Recently changing rifle from a 28" barrel to a 30" barrel meant I ha...

Re: 155gr bullet choice for 1:13 twist

We have had a few guys here with 12 twist fail miserably with hybrids. The Berger VLD would be a good option along with the HBC. Both are a good price too.
