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: 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...
