Re: Sixty.10 Rattler – Coming Soon

Great idea Dennis, and it fits with the increasingly popular no empty cases on the mound. With that in mind, maybe mod 1 could be a clear acitate cover rather than the solid ally one. It would allow the scorer to count rounds and the shooter would be aware of how many to go. Just a thought, great c...

Re: chargemaster

Exactly the same experience. It worked fine for years then developed a high pitch whine on slow trickle then tended to stop early more and more frequently. I stripped and cleaned but it turned out to be tge power supply. It says 10v but works on 12 just fine.

Very happy with mine (the nut behind the butt being the weak link.) 140 ELDs at 3050 with 09 in necked down Palmer brass is going well.

Re: Auto Trickler upgrade, prepare to kick yourself if you’ve just bought one

All the flash "upgrades" and still running bronze bushes instead of bearings and a O ring drive belt instead of bearings and a timing belt. Over engineering can be as bad as under engineering. My trickler spout bound up with a bit of powder, all that happened is the nozzel stopped and the...

Oddly enough, that's what they're for.

Re: North Queensland F-Class - Long Range Bisley Challenge

What a great weekend shoot. Very challenging conditions with Bisley adding just another bit to cater for. Big thank you to Shane Green for putting it together, the Atherton club for hosting, Betta for doing all the stuff Betta does, Steve Laz and Josh for ROing and the other shooters. It all came to...

Re: sighting in target

There was a bit of history in the 215s Litz had been shooting them the previous year from a 1:9. The reduction to a 1:10 was, iirc due to the extra spin of a 1:9 accentuating errors from jacket wall thickness when there was no need to spin them that fast. That said, he seemed to do pretty well with ...

Re: sighting in target

It was actually Bryan that explained the second part to me. He gave a lecture at the SWNs and explained why Berger had reduced the twist rate on the 215s from 1:9 to 1:10. In a conversation later on I asked about the dangers of running in the "marginal stability" zone of the Berger calcula...

Re: sighting in target

The 90/95 will go ok out of a 1:10 whilst it has the speed but I suspect it will loose stability at some point. Unless I've got this wrong - which HAS happened in the past - the bullet becomes more stable as it slows down in flight. As I understand it , that is dependant on spin rate being suitable...
