Re: Submerging barrels in cleaning solutions

In regards to that beaut ultrasonic cleaner you built where did you source the parts ? Or more specifically is there a special frequency or product I should be looking at ? Lyman make one. Looking at the specs it uses 10 transducers and operates at 40kHz. https://www.lymanproducts.com/brands/lyman/...

Re: Tikka T3 actions for F class standard

Longranger, the pictured T3 is a 1/8 twist 223. The throat has plenty of length for the heavies. With no load development and PMC brass I was getting about 1/2 moa waterline with 75gr amax using a Harris bipod on a concrete bench the other day.

Re: Tikka T3 actions for F class standard

Good points UL1700! I happen to have my CG inch apart and a T3 out of it's stock. You can really see the difference between a dedicated target action and a light hunting action. The picatinny rail on the T3 makes it look much heftier than it really is. https://i.postimg.cc/RN9973tk/20190110-165805.j...

Re: Abrasive cleaners and copper fouling

Thanks Frank for the picture.

FWIW, when I have to resort to JB bore paste I use the Super Intensive VFG felt pellets.

Out of interest williada, if the bore has been smoothed too much can it be recovered with a few strokes of a lead lap and a course paste (i.e. say 300 grid)?

Re: How to hit the bullseye at 900 yd?

To add to Peter Smith's post on mirage, I've attached a good description of mirage that I found here http://southtexasshooting.org/multimedia/text/mirage.html The formatting on the webpage is not the best so I took the time a while ago to copy it into a word document and clean it up Mirage and Condi...

Re: 155gr bullet choice for 1:13 twist

Thank you all for your input. Selecting twist rate is a compromise which does lead to having different barrels for short and longs if you wanted to optimise the twist. I've noticed that the berger have revised their website twist recommendations a few times but if you go to their twist calculator an...

Re: 155gr bullet choice for 1:13 twist

Thanks argh, scott/r, williada, for you input. Price is a consideration in this case. Incidently I have a stash of 155 hybrids and 1:10 barrels :D :D :D but just looking to not "waste" the 1:13. So from the advice it looks like the #2156 SMK would be the best choice with the 155.5 HBC a cl...

Re: 155gr bullet choice for 1:13 twist

Thanks Alan,
While they will all stabilise, I know the berger hybrids prefer at least 1:11 & berger's twist calculator recommends 1:12 for the 155.5 fullbore.

What's the experience with the hbc 155.5?

Thanks
Peter

155gr bullet choice for 1:13 twist

Hi All,
I've got a couple of 1:13 twist barrels with plenty of life left in them that came with a rifle I brought. I'm thinking of using them for practice and club days. What 155gr bullet would people recommend. I know the #2155 SMK will work but is there anything else?

Appreciate any advice.
Peter

Re: The Future

This is great discussion, I hope it translates to the beginning of meaningful change. If I may add my perspective as someone who has shot at grass roots level in several countries other than Australia. It has been mentioned in a previous post that the strictness of Australian gun laws encourages par...

Thanks Roger, I should have been more specific in that I'm looking to import from outside of Australia.
