Well done Jim.
Those pomms are on fire. Great effort sticking a wedge between them.

Re: Barrel for Jr wanted

I'll measure to be sure (not home till Sunday) but the Barts should be 31" and the Maddcos 32" I'll measure and weigh and post back on Monday. Edited due to brain fart. The Barts are blanks. The Maddcos are unused and chambered 308 with an FTR reamer, threaded for a Barnard P just over 30&...

Re: Shooting in Commonwealth Games

The format could easily be televised simply by using a hexta/ozscore frame behind or a silver mountain in front of the manually marked ( official) target. What an oppertunity for the manufacturers! I would also assume that for the CG each shooter would have their own target face so markers could pat...

Re: Barrel for Jr wanted

This could be a little complicated but I have a Bartlein heavy that I'd swap for the Krieger.
Is there a weight limit on the barrel BAT? The Bart I have might be a profile up from a heavy palmer. I also have a Maddco #7 which is definately heavier that a HP. Straight taper from 1.25 to 0.9 I think.

Re: Stock Rigidity

Hopefully Peter Smith will be at the NQRA Queens in May. If he is I will take a picture of his stock. I believe it will undo many myths. It's not that he didn't put thought into it, Peter is very much a thinking mans shooter. He can also do, with some offcuts of ply, what others can't with the best ...

Re: Stock Rigidity

The "Spear of Destiny" is an obscenely pretentious piece of gimmick marketing offering to sell shooting skill. There's nothing in that stock that isn't in one of Bobs, Oh! Except Australian Rosewood of course. (Although I think this one is Wallnut?) 20170922_163944.jpg Thanks to Bobs aweso...

Re: What rifle case do you use?

Plano do a wheeled lockable, Lighter and cheaper than Pelican. Side by side I'd question any difference in quality.

Plano 108190

Where does that one come from James, and for how much?

Re: Stock Rigidity

I hear you Al. I won't be using the bouncy stock for comp, but it's a good tool to test my set up and release. Shooting FTR i have to deal with rifle movement but bouncing 3 targets was a bit excessive :? . Bob ran carbon rods down some internal side chanels in the most recent stock he made for me. ...

Re: New Sierra 230gr SMK

Thats expensive shooting $1.50 per pill It surely is. I emailed Brownells and asked them to add the product to their website hoping that their pricing might be a little more competitive than other places (as an aside, anything that is on the Brownells US site that isn't on the Australian one can be...

Re: What Precision or Tactical Rifle setup do you use

Going with a Tikka action, Trueflight 6.5 barrel in SLR , Terminator T3 brake and an Austec arms stock. Probably go with an Atlas bipod and still thinking on Scope. I have a Bushnell Elite for now, see how it goes.
Hoping the long neck of the SLR lives up to its reputation of extending barrel life.

Re: Stock Rigidity

A flexible wooden stock is not so bad i reckon Tim because at least it will keep u warm on a cold night when ya burn it ! The flexible one is an alloy one that got shaved until it got to weight. :cry: My wooden stocks ( made by Bob Eager) will not become firewood even to prevent hell itself freezin...

Re: Stock Rigidity

I think it's quite possible to go too stiff, the torque and recoil forces are going to go somewhere, all 'stiffness' or 'ridgidity' do is get them there quicker. That's not necessarily a good thing. I have a very flexible stock that came about simply by trying to get the weight down. It bounces arou...
