Re: Molybdenum disulphides, to use or not to use?

I agree with Chris,had three barrels around the 3000 round mark checked with a bore scope,compared with similar round count barrels and of the same manufacturer,but not moly coated,mine looked fine,the non molyed ones were severely fire cracked.Wet moly application is not difficult,I clean every day...

Re: primer pocket cleaning -to do or not

I clean primer pockets after every firing,I haven‘t done a scientific test to prove it is necessary,I think it is like cleaning your teeth,something you should do.

Re: Loads for 185 Grain Projectiles

It all depends on the individual rifle,with Winchester cases,46.5 grains of 2208,or 45.5 grains of 2206H and 185 Hybrids or Juggernauts,this isn‘t a recommendation,it is what I used at the time.

Re: 280 AI information Blog

Sorry , but I guess my strategy for a Queens will be shoot my .284 up to 800 yds or 900 yds then switch barrels to the 280 ai for 1000 yds . Switching barrels during a comp is something I’ve been practicing. And I still need more practicing . It did cost me a opm just recently. But you will never g...

Re: Cleaning after firing lead projectiles

Hoppes is fine,as far as I know there is nothing we should be using that dissolves lead in barrels,if in the unlikely event you got some leading solvent and a tight patch should push it out,a firm patch and JB paste will grab onto any lead also.For serious cases of leading,ooo or oooo steel wool on ...

Re: VRA Prize meeting

The 3 x 1000 at Bendigo today was a great shoot. A lot of fun in testing conditions but surprising to me not a really big field. Looking forward to tomorrow. Not surprising to me,when it comes to 1,000 yards and further,the commitment seems to ease off,hope tomorrow gets a larger field.A pleasing t...
