Re: RSAUM with Energy restrictions

Has anyone with a SAUM made a serious effort to find a load in the 2800s? I've seen very good accuracy in the high 2700s with a 284, so why wouldn't the SAUM have similar accuracy with lighter loads. When I was breaking in my saum and fireforming cases, there was a lower node with 175gr sierras, ac...

Re: RSAUM with Energy restrictions

I reckon these range energy limits are complete BS.. Everyone knows these regulations exist but not once have i seen them enforced or anybody tested.. Albert, As you know I run a saum.. I run a 28" barrel because of these energy limits.. 178gr pills are running 2915fps, (which is under the 3500...

Re: Carbon donut

Mr Sako Have you measured the bearing surface OD of your projectiles . Most throat dia are .30845 (but it depends on your reamer specs) it could be possible that your projectiles are larger in diameter than your throating reamer diameter. Depending on quality of projectiles some maybe ok others that...

Re: Canberra Queens

I've noticed in the comments that some shooters are not competing because of the targets?
Are these kongsberg targets that bad, that people would prefer to stay at home?

Re: Canberra Queens

Singo,

I'll be attending ACT queens, what was the issue in Sydney? Was there a electronic target issue?
Ive only shot on hexta and they seem ok..
Got the feeling something has happened in the past going by RDavies comment.

Re: Newby question about barrels

Barry, No I'm not saying that and if I understand your question correctly you are asking if cut rifled barrels ever get stress relieved etc.... Our steel starts out heat treated and double stress relieved as we get it from the mill. We don't induce any stress into the barrel blank and we don't do a...
