Re: Drop tube

I just use an off the shelf RCBS one and don't have any dramas. I think it's about 150mm long. Using that I can get 49gr of 09 into Lap cases.

Re: New Barrel

You wouldn't find too many dud barrels from premium barrel makers. Most of the "dud" ones I'll think you'll find are from shooters with nfi. If you want to run in your barrels go ahead, but you did ask for opinions and that's all you've gotten.

Re: New Barrel

Do they run in Formula 1 cars? If you have a good gunsmith, you shouldn't need to lap anything in. Every shot you fire is a shot closer to the end of the barrels life. I have run in barrels in the past and have now given up, I have never noticed a difference in either accuracy, cleaning or barrel li...

WTB 224 Barrel

Hi all. Looking to purchase a new HV 1:6.5/7 30/32" 5R 224 cal barrel. Prefer Krieger, Bartlien or Broughton. If anyone has anything laying around they'd like to sell, let me know. Cheers.

Re: Savage LRPV 6BR

As the ad states, this is a Savage LRPV, not a Benchrest model. That would make it a factory rifle with a factory barrel in original condition apart from the modifications listed above. I do have brass and dies for the rifle, but as they aren't listed in the ad, I'm not selling them. Cheers.

Re: Rifle weighing scales.

Peter, As CRO of Victoria, perhaps you could persuade the VRA to invest in some certified weights. This would allow shooters to bring their own scales (or personal weights) to Bendigo to check them. I would want to hope all of the state associations have certified scales and appropriate check weigh...

Re: Rifle weighing scales.

I use commercial shop scales. You can pick these up at auctions from closing down fruit & veg/butchers/supermarkets/delis. If you buy one of these and invest in a check weight you'll have it for life and never need worry again.

Re: Loan of a flex pod

Tim, I think shooting off a flex-pod is a great idea and you should definitely use one if you are going to get serious about FTR. They are all the rage here is SA. You obviously noticed we were all using them at the Queens you attended. :)

Re: Copperhead projectile approval?

I'd be more than happy to buy Copperhead projectiles, but in order for me to do that I would need to get a reply from the business that sells them. Twice contacted, zero replies. I asked for a couple of trial packs earlier in the week. Got an email yesterday confirming, just waiting for account det...

Re: brownells aust

I don't blame them for anything that happens outside of their control, but not carrying stock and just pocketing the money from your customers before ordering stock from the states is poor form.
