Re: 22 BR

The 6BR FLS die with a smaller bushing will be OK for forming cases, and sizing them after firing. The 6BR seater die will usually not work with a 22BR, so it is likely that you will either have to buy a 22BR seater, or maybe get your gunsmith to run the chamber reamer into a die blank. Either 2208 ...

Re: to make a fire form barrel or not

If you are worried about eroding your barrel with extra fire forming shots, another alternative is to use Trailboss powder to fireform the cases, with some cheap and nasty 6mm plinking bullets. You could fore 100 rounds pretty quickly without heating up the barrel, eroding the throat or using up yo...

Re: A huge favour being asked....

I can send some 6 Dasher and 284 Shehane brass. Not exactly what you are after, but not sure if it will help.

Re: Ftr stock what’s the best.

If you are a right handed shooter go for a left hand bolt and left hand feed. In F Class shooting this is the best ergonomics. Good Luck. Cheers Cliff. Why do you make this suggestion Cliff? I'm a newbie to the sport so interested to learn. If you are lying behind your rifle with the butt into the ...

Re: Copperhead 7mm 183-4 bullets

Have only fired a handful through a straight 284 to obtain some chronograph data, literally about 20 They have a very short bearing surface and require quite a bit less throat length than Berger 180VLD's i usually use in this barrel. They need a good extra 1.5gr of powder to achieve same velocity a...

Re: New Sporter/Hunter Class...is your club promoting it?

It all looks good to me and I like the idea of what they propose. My club would never allow muzzle brakes or magazines to be used, but hopefully there are plenty more progressive clubs who will.

What were people shooting?

There were a few using SAUMs at the longs, but also a few 284s doing well. In the short/mid ranges, there were the usual 6 Dashers doing well and some other usual 6 and 6.5s.

Re: VRA Queen series.

Congratulations Rod Davies, Frans Knox, Dave Phipps and James Corbett in your 2019 VRA Queens win. Looks like the wind gods threw everyone a wobbly for the last 1000. So close to a clean sheet Rod. Where’d you lose them? Congratulations also to grand Agg winners too. Well, what a great 5 days of co...
