Re: Lyman Turbo Tumbler

Do you have any records of past members say in the 1950's?

Re: Grains or grams?

Still lots of sources of error in a mechanical scale. The pivot point for instance. Its type of construction jewel, kinfe blade, magnetic dampened lots of different types all with pros and cons and different sources of error. Nothing is error free, its a matter of listing the sources determining the...

Re: Grains or grams?

But what if your scales will show 0.001 grams but only 0.02 grns. Now what do you think? There is actually a bit more to it than that with electronic scales and there are other specifications that need to be looked at as well as just the resolution. Mainly to see if the resolution is a good guide of...

Re: Submerging barrels in cleaning solutions

Methanol is not very common these days due to it being, well drunk, and causing blindness. Mentholated Spirits should be methanol but I am pretty sure it is now Ethanol which has exactly the same cleaning properties as the Methanol anyway. As for being hydroscopic well yes it is but only in concentr...

Re: kg cleaning products

Just a heads up on the KG12 yes it is a very good product but use care and either gloves or wash your hands well after using. The only ingredient other than water is Cyanide.

Re: AUSTRALIAN FCWC TEAM SELECTION

I know what you mean Tim. In the ideal world, you would have a Captain who is perfect for the job, and then if that person does exist, they must be willing to put their hand up for the job. The reality is usually quite different, probably for other national teams as well. I think this is even more ...

Re: which would you recommend

Theres no need to get on the bandwagon and do as everyone else does. However there is generally a good reason why a small group of barrels represent the majority of those being used. I think it would be investigating Bartlien, Krieger and Lilja to name a few they are all pretty much the same cost as...

Re: which would you recommend

Being acceptable for what is what the other posters are trying to point out. In Fopen you are at a 6 in barrel length disadvantage that could be in the range of 200fps. Not to mention the profile of the barrel. F open is a tough class many of the competitors have multiple guns in different calibres ...

Re: Alpha munitions brass

I had a few Lapua Palma 308 cases that had the flash holes damaged slightly during primer removal. The pin was not ground down enough. Anyway I drilled them to make them uniform only at 1.59mm not the 1.8mm of a large flash hole. The result was a 20fps increase in MV and a slightly higher ES.

Re: High power scopes and NQ mirage!!

I am uncertain if winding the power back helps to reduce sighting error, it certainly makes he target look a little more still. This is something I would really like to know as well. Mirage is often compared to the spoon in a glass of water I understand that may just to be illustrate two substances...

Re: Rifle weighing scales.

When it comes to measurements there is really no such thing as an absolute unless you are NMI, even then there are tolerances given for the standards.
