Re: NECK CLERANCE - IS IT IMPORTANT?

Through my own mistake I overturned the necks on 300pieces of 284brass, my chambers are no turn necks which I think are 0.317 (offhand). My loaded rounds only measure 0.311 and the barrels shoot wonderfully! I have got through one barrel and 600rounds into a second barrel and am only just starting ...

Re: If ballistics is a science ....

What bugs me is l put a lot of time in case prep, bullet prep, barrel prep and load development. Go to prize meetings and at the end of the day if beaten l ask the winner of their prep work and usually are told l just throw the loads and pick the bullets out the box as l go. That makes me think l a...

Re: 2213sc SAUM load

I have used 2213sc in one of my spare SAUMs and it runs 60.75gns of 2213sc with 180 hybrids at around 2960-2970fps. This was not the load limit and cases lasted a lot of firings. Hi Rod . Do you think it’s a powder worth looking at or best for newbie Saum lovers to stick to 2209? Regards Sellsy. My...

Re: 280 AI information Blog

2870 was around where my 280AI was happy The saum is the world team caliber so if you get one you will have a well proven cartridge in your quiver, not as exciting as winning with an oddball cartridge but maybe more likely. It’s been interesting to watch this experiment anyway. How about a 6.8-284 ...

Re: Grains or grams?

Hmm 15 point something grains to a gram, makes 0.1 grain far more accurate a measure than 0.1 grams in my book. Anyone measuring powder in grams is not safe to load ammunition and therefore unsafe to shoot near. Better not shoot near me then as the scale I use for long range loads only reads in gra...

Re: Pussy pads otherwise known as recoil absorbers

The Limbsaver recoil pads are getting good reviews and I like the ones I have had. They are pretty soft and spongey compared to some and come in a few different sizes and shapes. Mine were about 25mm thick which I liked.

Re: Awesome stuff Australia

Great work all around, they really had a great depth of talent, from the juniors to the vets and everywhere in between. Whatever they have done this time has certainly worked and I hope they can follow up on this success in the future.
