Re: enlighten me on powder measures.

I used the RCBS and reweighed on a Gempro 250 for a few years. Generally there was very little in it, add a kernal or 2 or remove. The RCBS did have a tendency to overthrow and you have to wait to see that measurement pop up. Not a big issue, just chuck it back in and throw another. The only reason ...

Re: VRA lead up and Queens.

+ 1 for "just do it".

I made that decision 6 years ago, attended my first Queens at the NQRA in Townsville.
I learned more that first evening than in the 18 months prior. I took 2 ranges on day 2 which was all due the the advice that evening.
I go back this year as defending champion.

Perfect working condition, all the bits, hard case, ready to go.
Very little use, it has some powder marks on the bayonet, pretty hard to avoid them. Other than that its as new.
$500 + shipping.

Re: NECK CLERANCE - IS IT IMPORTANT?

IMO you can have brass that has an uneven neck and still be concentric to the bore, you can have even necks and a bullet that isn't concentric to the bore Agreed, but Can the projectile be concentric with unturned brass that is sized in a bushing die? If the neck is uneven and it is sized from the ...

Re: If ballistics is a science ....

The example you use is a great example of why there is little concensus. You talk of neck "tension" but we measure it in length. We aren't measuring tension are we? We are assuming the tension achieved by measuring the increase in diameter of the brass, not even the circumference but the d...

Re: Berger 210VLDs Loads for F/TR

As per the advice from Jase.
I've just done it. Go with an 8-10 thou jam and start low with .5gn increments.
Check for pressure signs and stop when you get them.
You will probably find they like a jam but starting with one keeps you on the safe side.

Neck turning mandrels

Does anyone know if the 21st Century neck turning mandrels will fit the Sinclair neck turning tool?
Or if someone has the 21st Century stuff, whats the diameter of the mandrel base.
Cheers

Re: WTB bushing bump neck sizing die .308

You could always skin the cat another way.
Get a small base body die and a Lee collet neck die.
Better result for your wallet and your cases. You only bump the shoulder when you need to, which shouldn't be very often.

Why don't you buy this https://www.ozfclass.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=10605 one then? I'd say just about everthing you will need to get started is currently available on this forum except maybe a barrel, but they pop up from time to time. The benchrest scope would be a good catch, you can't ...

Re: WTB .308 F gear

There's a bit more to it than just 308 Pete. What discipline are you planning to shoot, F std or F TR?
The Barnard is a good option but answering the question will help ID the barrel profile and twist rate you want. Do you need a bipod to go with it or a front rest?
