Re: Wanted - 230gr Berger Hybrids

If you mess with 215's moly then and wet moly (pm me if you want to know how) and use Palm brass you wont have any issues with pressure. I dont know anyone who got 230's to work, not saying it is impossible but some of the best in Aus have tried and failed. 210vld's are the easiest heavies to get go...

Re: Wanted - 230gr Berger Hybrids

Yes I know, but realistically 215's are on the ragged edge with a one in 10 twist. Apart looking at the drift tables I cant see a benefit of the 230's over the 215's due to the max velocity you can shoot the 230's at Belmont. Also with 215's which I made work well in some barrels I feel that you hav...

Re: Seb PodPad

Seems a no-brainer to me that a plate/board with some carpet or other uniform fabric on top will be more consistent than a Podpad ! Especially for free recoil as u say Chris. Go with a steel plate I reckon to gain a higher inertia value than a board gives. Why ? Because ya DON'T want the board or p...

Re: Seb PodPad

Others may chip in, but IMO if you like me dont hold the rifle the pod pad will likely give elevation shots. I have tried a few times and as the top of the pad is not flat and a small groove is made if the feet are slightly on the rise of the groove then when shot is fired the gun sits down into th...

Re: Wanted Barnard Action or barrelled action - 223 or 308

My advice for what it is worth is get a .308. Missus was a steadfast .223 shooter as she said she did not like the recoil but went to .308 for team shoots, now she shoots 215's and the .223 has not been used in years (bolt and barrel).. The the tinkering becomes more than tinkering you will end up g...

Re: LAPUA 308 BRASS

Brass should not arrive like that. That said I prep all brass before firing, resizing with Lee collet die which has a mandrel that the outer collet sizes onto which fixes most neck dent issues. Next I trim etc so unless damage is serious most dented necks end up perfect.

Re: WTB - LH F Class rig

Left hander shooting right hander action you can see the port and see putting the round in. You can also see removing the case and see the bolt. Right hander with right handed action or even lefty and left handed action you cant see the port and you cant see to load or remove the case and the bolt i...

Re: "Cheaper" optics - are they suitable?

I have a fleet of sightrons All have been trouble free, perform well and of course suit my budget. I have had the option of going Nightforce br and have not been converted. I don’t believe they are any better I conducted a test one day and believe me there is a big difference. I was sending a Night...

Re: "Cheaper" optics - are they suitable?

I have been using a Sightron 8*32*56 for a couple of years now and it is a brilliant scope, would strongly recommend. Sightron are a lot cheaper than Nightforce and equivalent in quality. Hmm no.. I had two and sold them they are quite reliable but optics dont come close to Nightforce not even near...
