Re: Help identifing Omark barrel

Hi Mick Most Black Mountain barrels I've seen are marked with made by SAF Lithgow for Black Mountain Rifles. The photo you give seems to show the same outside texture of Black Mountain barrels where they look like a sort of hammer forged finish on the outer surface. Maybe there were some of these th...

Re: Front Plate

Hi Richard. This issue of anything on the boards or mats used under an F standard bipod that can guide the bipod in any way was dealt with and outlawed by the NRAA several years ago. Rule 20.10.1.2 part (b) covers the situation."In all cases the feet of the bipod must be free to slide freely in...

Re: Question for the Omark experts

Chris. I have and still use several Omarks. I don't like having ejectors in target rifles so all of mine have had the ejector springs replaced with very weak ones that still leave it in place but not functional as an ejector. The reason I do this is to leave the design of the action and bolt head un...

Re: Question for the Omark experts

I hope if anyone is loading an Omark to the point that they are flowing brass back into the ejector hole, that they are never at the same end of the mound that I am shooting. Regards Malcolm.

Re: Omark firing pin spring

Travis SARA gets the springs made, they are a good heavy duty item quite a bit stronger than the original Omark ones or any of the Remington 700 springs. Regards Malcolm.

Re: Central Rear Sights

lonerider43 Not sure if there was ever a specific mirror image l/h central sight but most I have seen were just the r/h sight with the iris mount reversed in the wind arm. Not all the iris mounts can be reversed though due to a couple of variations in their offsets. If you get one with the larger 9....

Re: Alpha munitions brass

Now you're on the money Bruce. Consistency shot to shot, minimal outlay for one case, no grizzling about machinegunning, no need for time delay arguments on electronic targets and hugely improved barrel life. Ticks all the boxes, I like it. Regards Malcolm.

Re: Alpha munitions brass

Hi Bruce. Maybe putting into a FLS die might be ok , but I just had a brilliant thought (couple of reds on a cruisey Sunday night). If we all went back to using muzzle loaders problem solved- absolutely zero case variation shot to shot. Problem solved and would save a shitload on cases as well. Rega...

Re: Alpha munitions brass

Hi Bruce. I know there are variables with filling and weighing case capacity as well as how well cases conform to chamber dimensions after fireforming but I still give way more credence to sorting cases by that method than on weight alone. Like I said you could give me a thousand cases of different ...

Re: Alpha munitions brass

Fireform in rifle, trim to length, plug primer pocket, fill to top with old ball powder and weigh. Sort cases as to internal capacity. It is internal capacity that determines the chamber pressure in a given barrel as well as the pressure curve upon ignition. Primer briscance can be a variable(but on...

Re: Alpha munitions brass

Hi Bruce. This subject of case weight variation really amuses me with the way people think it is so important to consistent accuracy. I don't think it matters a hoot. It is internal case capacity that is the important issue, not case weight. I'd be quite happy to make people think they had perfect c...
