Re: Trigger questions

Trigger Tech triggers have become very popular for some of the shooting disciplines over here over the course of the last couple of years. https://triggertech.com/products/diamond Looks good Frank. I like the way the shoe is uncluttered with an adjustment screw hole like the Jewell which gives ya l...

Re: Hornady A tip Bullets

The original alum. tip bullets I believe even prior to the 7mm's was the .50bmg AMAX bullet which they still make. Bruce's comment on the twist rates of barrels available or considered the standard back then probably didn't help at all. later, Frank I actually recall aluminium tipped hunting bullet...

Re: Hornady A tip Bullets

For reference my wedding ring is .924" in diameter. This is at 430 yards. My ring/finger is covering 3 of the 5 rounds. You can see one impact above and one at about 7 o'clock position from my ring. Top left is just the flash from my cell phone.

Re: Hornady A tip Bullets

Over here they are retailing for about $79 a hundred for like the 6.5mm bullets. I did get my hands on some of the 6mm's (25 of them). Haven't loaded them up as of yet. I have shot the 153 out of my 6.5CM (only shot 19 of them so far) but all I can say is you couldn't wipe the grin off of my face. ...

Re: Is my scope Broke ?

That is one test you can perform. Dry firing. If you see the cross hairs bouncing than I'll say the scope is not holding zero. I've seen it a couple of times my self and it was the scope. Another thing you can do to check for tracking is while looking thru the scope at a horizontal or vertical objec...

Re: throat angle

There are carbon issues with tight necks and long strings. I like about .003" clearance i.e. 0.0015" either side of the loaded round. It was Boyer who demonstrated how the correct neck clearance can be determined by the carbon wave on the neck. It is meaningful in determining that your ri...

Re: throat angle

Hello Frank and Peter. I'm with you, I'm a jumper. It's one of the polarising issues; jump or jam. Not much point in a debate, neither side will convince the other. Floaters take care of themselves. But I would like your views on this proposition. If you jump, it is likely that you will not need to...

Re: throat angle

Peter, twist rate calc on the 147's and 150's. 147's @ 2600fps. I get a min. of 1-7.656 twist. @ 2800fps. I get a min. of 1-7.92 to 1-8.052 twist depending on the numbers I use. So I say 8 twist is ragged edge for the 147's. 150SMK @ 2600fps. I get a min. of 1-7.392 twist. @ 2800fps. I get a min. of...

Re: throat angle

Peter, I can do a twist rate check again tomorrow on the 147’s for you. I know they will fly in a 1-8 but I feel the 1-8 is on the edge. I asked one of the ballistic guys at Hornady what he recommended on them. He said same thing they will fly in a 1-8 but he was more comfortable with a 1-7.5 twist....

Re: throat angle

Frank, Peter and Williada - Thank you very much for your data and information I've landed at leade angle not being a significant contributor but an influencer to some extent on precision. Its interesting but most I have spoken to with the new 200s and fast twists that couldn't get them shooting to ...

Re: throat angle

All very interesting to say the least. Not to get off subject about throat angle. I’ve shot a lot of the Hornady bullets both in handloaded form and in box ammo form. I haven’t expierenced and bullet failures/tip melting etc...I know it’s been talked about over here as well. I also know before Horna...

Re: throat angle

Sorry I'm not allowed to say who did the testing and or give more details. The one page I can say it is a .308win and a 175smk. The other page is a .30cal. mag but again I cannot say the bullet. I don't want this to come across as bashing makers etc....Look at the bottom right of each graph sheet. I...
