Re: Loading .243 AI with .260 AI dies

One issue I can see is if you set the dies to bump the shoulder back it will leave a small area at the base of the neck potentially not set back and may create a weak spot after a few loads and you would still need to buy a neck only die such as a lee collet neck die. You would have to use the 260 d...

Re: Loading .243 AI with .260 AI dies

Other than the obvious fact that the neck diameter is different between the two?

Re: PRS IS COMING , WE HAVE TO EVOLVE !

All for the addition of new classes and maybe there could be a separate class shot before or after the main f class shooters have done their thing. Is the F Class shoot then going to be "before or after" the main TR or FTR shooters? Stupid question! Ftr and fullbore target rifle are curre...

Re: PRS IS COMING , WE HAVE TO EVOLVE !

As someone who has seen muzzle brakes in action I can see what the issue is with them, I am far from a dinosaur and am all for trying to get people involved in the sport. The problem with a muzzle brake is how they create blowback in a lateral fashion, on a dry mound this is quite an issue as the du...

Re: 260 Rem load data help

Looking at a few charts, start at around 42.5 and work up to around 45.5 of 2209, by what I can see it’s a very similar load zone to an 85 grain Sierra game king hpbt in a 243 and around 44 grains of 2209 works well there. Seating depth is dependent upon the rifle, each has its own preference, but f...

Re: NRAA Factory Ammo Velocity

No I don’t have any photos sunnycoast I believe I have melted all the defective ones into ingots, I might be able to find a couple if I have a dig around, or maybe in the box of unfired ones I have. The problems are not new and I saw it 16-18 years ago when in the range supplied ammunition. I got ba...

Re: NRAA Factory Ammo Velocity

I have had cases which have had cuts in them which are barely perceptible until fired upon which they expell gases into the chamber, cases with severely creased necks which cannot be chambered (3in one box and multiple more in several boxes) cases with split necks and others which have numerous defo...

Re: NRAA Factory Ammo Velocity

Recent disassembly of an unusable $1.30 nraa round showed it loaded with 43 grains of what appeared to be 2206h. Considering how low the charge is I would think that most would struggle to hit much more than 2800 fps. I will not buy any more of the nraa factory ammunition as I have had too many that...

Re: Victorian Queens Series - 2018

I would prefer electronic targets myself. Can’t be cheated by them, every shot is accurately recorded, no stick on patches that can fall off and cause confusion for the markers. That’s my 2c worth.

Then blow it out to 40 Deg shoulder

Nothing wrong with the standard specs. Try an 85 grain Sierra gkhpbt over 44 grains of 2209, it’s quite spectacular! Stops lots of critters in their tracks at quite good ranges.
