Re: Don’t throw out your worn out 6.5 mm barrel!!

Just buy a Savage axis in 243, grow your man bun, buy some ugly pants with tight calves and baggy crotch, and carry a no fat stevia sweetened soy latte and get a man bag to go with the auto tranny you put in your Subaru Forester!!!

Seriously though the 243 is not one to rule out.

Time we got serious ab...

Re: Question for the Omark experts

I will politely agree to disagree, if the metal became molten and was poured it would have flowed, yes brass and other metal are malleable, however pressure forming a metal is more appropriately labeled stretching when it’s forced into a cavity mould. Anyhow I don’t have any “flow” into the ejector ...

Re: Question for the Omark experts

! So that will allow a .001" brass flow with hot loads or soft brass!!! Keith H. :) :) :) If 1 thou allows brass to “flow” so be it! That’s such an incorrect term! If it was going to expand to fill the one thou depression it would more than definitely have been able to depress the ejector deep...

Re: Question for the Omark experts

Just to be safe and alleviate everyone’s thoughts of the possibilities of case damage and venting of ruptured case gases I made a plug with similar tolerances to the ejector that sits just below flush with the bolt face (1 thou below) will see how it goes tomorrow. ! So that will allow a .001"...

Re: Question for the Omark experts

I hope if anyone is loading an Omark to the point that they are flowing brass back into the ejector hole, that they are never at the same end of the mound that I am shooting. Regards Malcolm. Dont own use an Omark anymore, long since moved up the food chain, but, with 155's my load was at the time ...

Re: Question for the Omark experts

They do have quite a large ejector hole which is why I asked the question, I did think it may leave a mark or lump on the rear of the case, but was mostly concerned about it being unsafe to my wellbeing. I really only want to try it as a bit of an experiment.

Re: Tobler Actions

Tobler used to make pretty good barrels back in the day. Never knew they made actions though.
