Well done Alan, this is the kind of thing we need to help others and help the sport. Nothing is difficult, but sometimes it can be a little daunting. We are all too eager to help others where we can with information, our experiences and other thoughts. Collectively pooling ideas, or trialing an idea...

Based on this, most 26inch barrels will deliver around 2800-2870 fps for the 155gn 308. Maybe FS is going to become a short barrel class over there. Problem is how long is it going to be before its law here ? The bigger open calibers are going to be badly effected. And what about Match rifle in the ...

I was talking with someone yesterday at the Maintland OPM who uses a 6.5-284. The barrel is on 2600 at the mo, and has had one rechamber.

The rifle/barrel is Ben's old Barnard/barrel blocked rig and still shoots very tight.

Thought that may be interesting to post.


Tony.

HI Barry Interesting post mate :) I agree with you that my indicated method is crude, indeed very crude, but it was a method to try with the absence of the right tools. In reality there is no substitute for the right gear if you wish to make consistent ammo. I agree that my stony point OAL gauge, an...

Iggy Try SARA stores .... http://www.riflesa.asn.au/store.htm They will have the Redding mic seaters and the ogive gauge tool your looking for. BTW, the ogive tool is Okay, but in my opinion isnt really necessary if you have a good seater like the redding micrometer ones. The ogive tool will tell yo...

G’day Kreman and welcome to ozfclass. As Barry said, you will need to join a club to shoot regularly. All clubs will let you shoot as a visitor for maybe 3 times, so you can evaluate if its for you, then they expect and require you to make a decision and join. Joining fees are not much in reality wi...

Yep, soot everywhere! :lol: :lol: :lol: I forget to add that the marks that will show on the projectile will be elongated, this is because the force used to close the bolt not only pushed the projectile into the case but also into the lands. If you use the start of the mark (closest to the bullet ti...

G’day Iggy Mate you could try the following method if you do not have access to a stony point OAL gauge, Make a dummy round and keep it to one side for calibrating your dies should you ever need to re set them. 1. Full length or neck size a case 2. Do NOT put a primer or powder charge in it. 3. Seat...

Barry Just to give you some additional info … your settings, as you write them, for your Rifle/Scope in clicks, MOA for imperial ranges and (adding 10%) MOA for metric ranges. 300 = zero. 300 - 400 . 25 clicks up. (3.1 MOA for yards) (3.5 MOA for meters) 300 - 500 . 50clicks up. (6.25 MOA for yards)...

Id like to point out too that its best to ‘check’ your scopes calibration when your on the zeroing range. This is quite easy to do. Shoot a shot on your 100yard zero then wind, say, 3moa up and shoot again. Then measure the distance between the two holes. If the distance is 3 inches (76mm) then your...
