Re: Given Current Component Availability...

So for every box of Bergers we buy, we will be supporting the competition? To support the team, Berger Bullets will donate $1.00 for every box of 7mm 184gr F-Open Hybrid bullets sold towards U.S. Team expenses for the upcoming 2021 F-Class World Championships in South Africa. Time we got serious ab...

Re: Given Current Component Availability...

Thinking outside the box a little. How do the 90’s go in a 22BR?? The 22BR with 90gn pills punches above its weight. When i first started in F class I used a 22BR to win a few queens and scoped quite a lot of 60.9 and 60.10s with it. I still have a slower twist 22BR running 75gn pills and it has al...

Re: Given Current Component Availability...

If you're looking for a challenge as well as something cheap to run don't discount the 223Rem. With the goal of conserving both projectiles and barrel life in my 308W FTR and match rifle barrels, for supply and demand mean that even 30 cal projectiles are expensive, unavailable or both depending on...

Re: Berger Hunting VLD vs Match VLD

As you would do with any different batches of bullets, it would still be an idea to just run 5 of each over a chronograph so you can keep your same speed. Even with the exact same bullets, just different batch numbers, the velocities can change, sometimes enough to move you out of the node.

Re: News Flash - World Champ to build a Creedmore

Rod goes out socialising with his friends then the whole world knows what caliber the Aussie team is taking to South Africa. Good one Having to sport a man bun may also be part of the selection process by the look of it. Well I do like Chai latte and can rock skinny jeans but I lack the long flowin...

Re: The effect of too much twist and speed

Walker Flatline will be OK if you are not shooting under ICFRA rules ICFRA rule F2.20. Ammunition may be commercial or handloaded but loaded in a manner consistent with the ammunition industry’s accepted standards; must be safe to fire in the rifle for which it is intended and must meet in all resp...

Re: 300 WSM loads

To answer my own question, absolutely no pressure signs at all with a node in the 66s. so i will try low 66s at 800m on saturday. recoil is stout in a 7.5 kg rifle, noticeably more than the saum at these velocities (assuming around 2800, no chrono). That would be "stout" in a 7.5kg rifle....

Re: 7mm SAUM Rechamber/Barrel Life

Macguru , These figures of 900-1000 rounds are with 2209 which is very STOUT in the SAUM at 2950+ hence the reduced barrel life but the trade off is they are VERY Accurate and consistent. You can however double the life with slower powders like 2217 but they can be a little tricky to keep tuned but...

Re: 7mm SAUM Rechamber/Barrel Life

I have only put highish round counts through 2 SAUM barrels. One was used to fire 100 new cases at 2840fps before shooting about 750-800 rounds with 2209 and about 2960 fps. At this stage it started to lose its edge. I tried to tweek loads a bit more, but it just wasn't as good as it was. It was abl...

Re: Match rifle and NSW queens

Not sure if this has been discussed but they are both on at the same time - bit of a bummer as they both interest me... I'll probably pick the queens and another chance to irritate Mr Davies :D While I’m sure you will find plenty of opportunities to irritate me, I too am disappointed that 2 of my (...
