Re: "Cheaper" optics - are they suitable?

When I first started I was using a Tasco World Class Plus 6-24x50. Was it any good? Good enough for someone who didn't know any better. Did it have limitations? Sure did, but I didn't know what they were. The cheaper stuff will work. For how long and how well, who knows. Slap a Nikko target on and h...

Re: Which D/P action is best?

Not that it means anything, but I have a Stolle dual port. I run it in an F/TR set up and picked this option purely from a weight stand point. I'm quite happy with it, but the timing is an issue with mine. I am that having that rectified as we speak. I know people who run Barnard dual ports for Open...

Re: Sierra 155gn MKBT

Hi mate. Are you a member of a rifle club? From the sounds of things you could use a bit of a hand learning some reloading basics. You need to find out your maximum first and work back from that. As a rule of thumb with my hunting rifles I've always started 2 or 3 grains under max load in reputable ...

Re: Omark 44

Hi Chris. There is no secret or special load. You're going to have to work up to you max first and figure out where you need to be after that. I would imagine you're going to be somewhere between 43.5gr and 45gr of powder. Also, I would get someone who knows what they are doing to take a look at tha...

Re: New Two Box Chrono

I just ordered one of these to try at home. I don't have an issue with multiple shooters when I test, so will be interesting to see how it goes. I've used a mates LabRadar and really like it. I think they are definitely the way to go.

Re: SAKO Sporting Rifles - Any good…?

The standard one was hard, but crisp. I could shooot well enough with it using a 8x Kahles to make nice round 1/2" groups at 100 metres. I just purchased a Maddco unit for it on advice from a guy in the know. Was searching in vain for a Canjar, but found it easier locating unicorn shit. It wasn...

Re: SAKO Sporting Rifles - Any good…?

You've bought a good bit of kit that should last you a life time. I have an 85 varmint I had rebarrelled to 6 dasher and I have a L461 varmint in 20 vartarg. Both shoot exceptionally well. The 85 magazine shits me to use, 75 was much better. I wouldn't rush out to buy another 85, much prefer the 75 ...

Re: 10 Twist 308 Win barrel ok for 155.5gn projectiles?

I ran a 1:11 5R Krieger with 155.5gr pills and had no problems at all. My 1:10 I'm using for F/TR shot my old standard 155 load into the same hole at 100 yards when I was fire forming, so don't think you'll have a problem. I've yet to set up my 30/06AI Kieth. I've fire formed 50 cases, was hoping to...
