Re: 223 Rem throat length

If you are able to get hold of a couple of 80 grn projectiles first before adjusting the throat and trying them first, I'd do that. I've personally found that the hornady sit deep compared to bergers and sierras. In my savage anyway. One of the guys at north arm shoots 80 vld in a standard tikka thr...

Foresite mount size

Guys, I was given an old 98 mauser target rifle about 12 months ago and finally got around to changing it back to a t/r setup yesterday. It's in pretty good shape for it's age with a 1:14 26" madco barrel on it. When I went to put a barrel mount on it for the front tunnel, the spare one I had i...

Re: Lee Collet Neck Die

Guys, I'm not saying that there is anything wrong with the dies. It made good rounds, it was just my ocd f#€@ing with my head again. I still have it and just about to gjve it another go on the neilson I picked up recently.

Re: Lee Collet Neck Die

Yeh, nah, they are the same. They aren't a bad die for the money, but I couldn't get my head around the end result of what the crimp did to outside of the necks. Those three grooves that was left after sizing was what did it for me. I'm not saying that it was wrong or it made a difference to accurac...

Re: NECK SIZING

Thanks you all for your replies, I did remove the firing pin to find the lands which worked very well, but im having trouble with cases once i try to neck size them. I am getting a different feel when I close the bolt. reading the die instructions it says to screw the die in till it touches the she...

Re: NECK SIZING

I agree with you Bruce, if you are chasing the lands for overall length, but if you are just looking at shoulder bump, then the gauges work well taking measurements from a fired case and subtracting the length you require.

Re: NECK SIZING

These are a great die to use, but again like all dies, if they set right. If you bought it new there will be an instruction sheet in the bottom of the box. It's written well, so just follow the instructions step by step and you'll be good to go. And yes, you'll need the headspace gauge to set your s...

Re: F Class Competition in Australia

That's our next step, Barry. Introducing the new guys to a decent target rifle. Once they show any sort of ongoing interest, we offer the use of the club rifles to have a shot from. Granted they have to pay for the NRAA Winchester ammo, but we had 2 rifles made (both are Barnard actions in cronk sto...

Re: F Class Competition in Australia

Sungazer, most of the 223 rifles that turn up for the first time are sitting on folding bipods, so they fit straight into f/tr. Which means the the 1:12 55grn fit straight in. Granted they get blown around alot, but if we handle the situation correctly, there is no reason for them not to come back. ...

Re: F Class Competition in Australia

As a t/r shooter (who does shoot f/tr and standard on practise days occasionally), I don't quite understand where all this "future of f class" talk is coming from. As I see it, you guys have three of the best scoped disciplines in the world. Four if you include standard B. F open is and pr...
