Re: New Barrel

I do 1 -1 -1 -3 -5 -5 then clean after each stage for the next few stages. Do it with the chronograph attached. You will have it zeroed, have an idea what charge is required to meet the target velocity and if it looks like it will hold a group together. It’s not really a big ‘waste’ of barrel life ...

Re: New Barrel

I think its fair to say that the majority of top level shooters do run their barrels in, and they are probably the best guide to what is worth doing and what isn't. I've run in about 20 6.5/7mm barrels in my career and have never questioned the need. I believe that 7.62 barrels are less prone to co...

Re: New Barrel

Frank sounds like you don't just get down and shoot, in fact you follow a process. what is not being considered here is not e every one has a bore scope. Does it make sense for the average shooter to seek out what the info barrel makers have on the subject? By all means get the barrel makers barrel...

Re: New Barrel

Could be something to do with the barrel manufactures instructions... guess they know a little about barrels? Will you guys be covering warranties for people don't bother with a run in procedure? What instructions? I know it can vary quite a bit from maker to maker. I tell guys I really don't do a ...

Re: New Barrel

Didn't bother with any particular procedure for my last barrel which went on a 6BRA. Put 25 rounds down the tube whilst fireforming, went home and gave it a good scrub. To this date it's probably been the best barrel I've had. All well and good but what would happen if it was a dud, would you expec...

Re: Bag/Case for 50” Savage 12 F/TR?

Here are a few pictures. One with a our logo added, John's standard logo which is Prone2Success and also a view of the reinforcing webbing on the bottom that doubles as a pocket for a cleaning rod holder if need be.

Re: Bag/Case for 50” Savage 12 F/TR?

I can take a picture later tonight and post it for you tomorrow. I know it's not local to you and getting it from the U.S. to Australia might be a bit of a dilemma as well but anyways.... John Homatas here in the States makes a padded/soft case for Palma and F Class guns. Has a pocket on one side an...

Re: Reversing a Barrel when Rechambering

If the smith gauged the bore diameter and found no taper, and the proposed new muzzle area was in good condition, what would be the problem? I agree with Alan's statement. The hard part here is you are measuring a couple of different things. Bore size and groove size. Most people don't have proper ...

Re: Reversing a Barrel when Rechambering

I've read all the comments and I'll give you my thoughts. First I will assume a new barrel. In regards to the direction of rifling and a cut rifled barrel and if it's a straight blank. Which end you thread and chamber doesn't matter. The lay of the finish is in direction of bullet travel. So don't w...

CLP is a oil/cleaner. CLP stands for cleans lubricates and protects. It's a good oil and use it in my guns.

About every 3 months Craig has a shipment going out if that helps at all.

Re: Truflite barrels, any opinions?

Hey Mick, I wasn’t sure if that’s what Chris was alluding to or not. Did cross my mind.

I know barrels amongst other things are tough for you guys to get not to mentions the prices you have to pay for all of your components that you need for shooting.

Re: forget tuners - get these

Early information I have is that there is no gain/benefit in performance over what we are all using right now. No I’m not just saying that to give the U.S. guys a edge over the shooters from down under! I can see the advantage in indoor range usage with the lead free thing but as of this time from w...

Re: Truflite barrels, any opinions?

Hi Gang, the usual suspects i.e. Krieger/Bartlein etc. are almost impossible to find, at least in the profile/twist/length I want. cheers, Chris Chris, What contour do you want/are you looking for? We make pretty much anything. Just because it might not be listed on our contour pages doesn't mean w...

Re: New F Open Rifle

So what cartridge are you using for .30 cal ? or are you developing a wildcat of your own ? I would guess a 300PRC which is about to be brought out as a proprietary cartridge very soon. Pretty much a 375 Ruger necked down. I think a good sized cartridge, not as overbore as the 300 Nosler or 300 RUM...
