Re: WTB fixed 10 power scope (prefer European or Japanese manufacture)

Will send some PMs!

Thanks Scott. Shame I didn’t get it fixed while dad was still here but better late than never. Looking forward to my young bloke using his grandads rifle.

WTB fixed 10 power scope (prefer European or Japanese manufacture)

I am after an older fixed 10 power scope to go on a restored 1971 Tikka M55 in 17 Remington blued. Would also consider a 3-9 or 4-14 in a European brand. This restoration is to honour my dad who passed away 3 years ago. He loved shooting foxes with it. It originally had a Tasco 10x but it was damage...

Re: Nosler rdf

Ok finally got the RDFs loaded up: preliminary results look good.
About half-MOA at 300metres.
Lapua SP brass; 42.5gn 2209, 30thou off; BR4 primers and a little bit of breeze. Around 2675fps. Might try a hotter load...
The Tikka CTR shoots well!

Critical barrel temperature

Is there actually a threshold temperature (or range) for increased barrel wear/life reduction? I have always let the barrel cool between strings but wondered if there is a temperature range to define ‘too hot’. I was using my new Tikka CTR and it heats up very quickly so this might be helpful. Given...

Re: 6.5 Creedmore and Re16?

A bit off topic but....

ShaneG I finally got the 6.5 Tikka to the range with some factory ammo...the Federal 140gn at 100y was pretty good in a little reprieve from a gusty crosswind at Belmont SSAA!

Re: Nosler rdf

I’m about to start load development using the 140 RDF and 2209. Was going to start at mag length for PRS.

I’ll post the results from 24” barrel; Lap SP brass; and BR4 primers.

Hope to get to the range within a few weeks.

Re: Given Current Component Availability...

I’m with ShaneG on this one...same rifle for me too! Lapua 6.5 Creedmoor small primer brass should last a while; seems to be good factory loads available; fair choice of pills (except Berger?); and has a reputation as an easy to load cal. Or just use a 223...several blokes at North Arm have them wor...

PS don’t forget that PRS is already looking very popular and they are mad for the gongs!

Re: a funny advertisement

Whilst I note the oxymoron (a gong does suggest less precision than a FClass target may provide) I think the point is that there are shooting sports that utilise the satisfying aural reassurance of a hit.

So yep, funny in ‘Dad joke’ sort of way...

Re: Military rifle enthusiasts Queensland

If he is not in a hurry to sell them I might know of someone interested in one of them towards the end of the year. I am on the Sunshine Coast too (I will check with scott/r).

Any details about their condition?
