Re: Sierra 110g SMK in 6mm

I have a friend who recently went through Berger 115s blowing up, Pacnor 1:7 twist barrel also - his is a 3-groove and I have read reports that they can chew the jackets up.

Re: Copperhead 184gr VLD

i received my sample this morning so I won't chime in with anymore photos. What I have done is weigh the bullets though and I can report there is a 0.4gr variance between the lightest and heaviest bullet, with the lightest coming in at 182.80gr and the heaviest at 183.20gr - there were two bullets a...

Re: Tikka T3 actions for F class standard

I have previously used a Tikka T3 in F-open - custom stock sourced and tidied up by Matt Paroz - I think the blanks are made by Ken Noye in Victoria. Anyway, the limitation, or the main limitation in F-open was that I could not hang a truck axle off it - Matt did not recommend it due to the nature o...

Re: 6mm Creedmoor

Just buy 6mm Creed brass, it's not hard to source. Projectiles...anywhere from 95's up to 115's depending on your appetite.

Re: Looking for 7mm barrel

Varmint to heavy varmint AlanF I have a 7mm Brux, heavy varmint profile that has 1800 rounds through it - currently 30 inches long and chambered in 284 and sitting in the garage doing nothing. You could comfortably cut it down to your desired length and re-chamber it. Twist is 1:8.7 from memory. PM...

Re: Motivational Music

If I'm in the car on my way to shoot, usually a collection of music off my phone - no bands in particular but I gravitate towards hard rock, industrial, darkwave...anything other than mainstream.

Re: Reloader 16 & 23?

Burn rate is similar to 2213SC so consider a load around that.

Re: Reloader 16 & 23?

I don't shoot a 284 but I shoot a 280AI and RL23 is my powder of choice. It is providing very good accuracy at 2815fps with no pressure and is very easy on brass. There's also a node at 2940 so I can run it at SAUM speeds and this node may be handy at the longs. I'm not convinced RL23 will give you ...
