Re: Norma 6.5mm 130 gr diamond line

Ken got back to me and is going to send some samples. I’ll let you know how they go.

Re: Norma 6.5mm 130 gr diamond line

I wasn’t aware of this company. I just had a look at their website and it does appear that there are some very suitable choices. So that could be the supply problem solved. They are however pretty much the same price as the Berger unless Ken offers discounts for bulk buys? I am happy to buy a couple...

Norma 6.5mm 130 gr diamond line

I was wondering if anyone has tried Norma diamond line 130gr 6.5mm projectiles? I am shooting a straight 260 mostly out to 500m in practical rifle matches. We shoot roughly 80 rounds a match and I like/need to practice, so I go through a few. I am sick of waiting for Bergers to come in to stock. The...

Re: WTB 260 rem 30 degree reamer

Someone is selling a 6.5slr reamer and dies on usedguns at the moment. It is not 260 improved but it is a very similar end product with a longer neck. Same parent case and about the same effort forming cases as well. Might be worth considering.

Lyman gen 6 powder thrower

I am thinking about buying a Lyman gen 6 powder thrower. I know then can be accurate but what I am really interested in hearing is how reliable they are from someone who has owned one for a while. I have used a borrowed charge master extensively and it works well but is not without it's flaws. Reali...

Re: 7mm 08

Keith you are correct the rifle will get used primarily for tactical matches at 500m. After looking at the components last night I get the feeling the extra case capacity gained from the AI is going to get chewed up as I have to seat the projectile rather deep. I don't think the very slight advantag...

Re: 7mm 08

Hey Graham the cases turned up today as well as hornady 162 Elds. Thankyou very much for that. You weren't kidding they were cooked! I Have taken some measurements and it appears my measurements closely match yours. There is very little difference between the elds and the Bergers. With the .170 free...

Re: 7mm 08

You mentioned before 308 lap brass for $88. I have previously paid that much but can't find prices quite that low at the moment. Where do you get yours?

Re: 7mm 08

I can feel myself getting drawn down the wild cat rabbit hole. How many firings are you getting from cases? I currently don't anneal because I am not set up for it.

Re: 7mm 08

Plumbs I have read your pages. I know you are stuck on the AI version and I understand why, but I am not yet sold and I think I may just run with standard 7-08. I have never had to fire form but I suppose it is not that big of a deal. From above post I am not sure, do you run any AI specific dies? I...

Re: Making bedding V Blocks

Wilson, I have made several that were incorporated into chassis I built. One for a Barnard and one for are ingrown 700. As I don't have cnc the easiest way to make the v is to step cut with a regular end mill then use a 45 degree chamfer cutter. I even noticed that Bunnings sells nice Sutton ones. Y...

Re: 7mm 08

Plumbs just re-reading your last post, I would have thought you would have got slightly more velocity then stated with a 30 inch barrel. Accuracy is king but do other powders give a bit more velocity? It really only matters if I go down south to compete, which I have been asked to do, as they someti...

Re: 7mm 08

Clever, I like what you have done with the case. The only thing that could throw that slightly off is the neck tension you are running on your die. Maybe it was a fired case? A 7mm projie will engage the lands at a diameter of . 282. With a 7-08 reamer at 0.170 free bore ( which ptg have recommended...
