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...

Re: Trigger clean

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.

Later, Frank

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...

Re: New F Open Rifle

Hi Frank. Are you using the new Silver Mountain SOLO? The ones with 8 Sensors? Just curious. Those big pills sure do have some energy down range. They are about going about 200 FPS faster at the target than the 7's I shoot. How was the recoil to manage? Hey Craig! No not the single user set up. The...

Re: New F Open Rifle

Here is an 11 shot group I did with another load. From the previous ammo (different bullet) I made no sight adjustments. First two rounds stacked on top of one another at the bottom center of the X ring. I made no elevation corrections at all. Round #4 I jumped on the gun and blew a 10 at about 4 o'...

Re: New F Open Rifle

A little updated on the new rifle. Didn't shoot the match due to weather last Monday. The rest of the week for individual etc...wasn't any better for the guys. They rescheduled one relay to a different day due to rain and took another relay completely out on another. I did shoot the rifle on Thursda...

Re: Successful 6mm for long range

Tim N, Several 6mm's do very well at long range. Same with 6.5's. 6mm's myself I've been shooting originally as an across the course rifle and a prone long range gun and a F class gun. The rifle I built the shop is in 6x47 Lapua. I actually used it last year in the team matches for the F class natio...

Re: 6.5 150g SMK

For comparison sake....look at a .308win. bullet at 2700fps in a 1-12 twist barrel. The rpm of that bullet is only 162,000.

Re: 6.5 150g SMK

Is this in a canted land (5T) barrel? Yes it's the 5R style rifling. The posts I read on the U.S forum seemed to indicate that the 5R type barrels didn’t have the same bullet blow up problem as the regular barrels. In your position you would know a lot more about this than myself (and most others) ...

Re: 6.5 150g SMK

I've run them thru my 6.5 Creedmoor at an honest 2700fps (23" barrel) and my barrel is a 1-6.75 twist. I've only shot them out to 430 yards but no bullet failures. Accuracy is outstanding. I know the velocity isn't really high but twisting them out of a 1-6.75 twist barrel......if they are goi...
