Re: Seb PodPad

Cos, guess what ? YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN BUDDY. I'm one of the over thinkers. I still believe thinking/analysis of a bunch of very simple and tangible dynamics that take place during a rifles recoil 'impulse ' would be a worthwhile exercise. Perhaps THE best group I ever saw shot was off a podpad and bi...

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

Yes Williada I'm a very naughty boy for ignoring ES, but I don't weigh cases either or sort boolits .....

My fetish ( unashamedly ) is stock designing/building and gun setup and the chambering method and just playing with those dynamics is my lot for now. Call me myopic but there 'tis.

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

So many ways to answer ....... guess u have worked out by now I'm suspicious of so much of this theory ! Does the rifle/s u mention above Williada actually exist ? And if u have theory to try and explain what's going on is that theory being "peer reviewed " by others working in the same fi...

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

wsftr, i am talking of the 1 barrel shooter. bruce. Yes I am a one barrel shooter :) I would demand a quarter minute rifle in the right hands that may let out just a tad over the middle ranges. Its doable. It may mean sorting through a number of barrels. I know that if a barrel does not perform wit...

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

Bruce dont forget Mr Litz did not come down in the last shower. I would frankly suspect he is humoured by much of what he hears and reads ! This thread seems to be approaching more common sense with discussion about the simpler but perhaps more 'knowable' dynamics at work here. I would like to know ...

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

The simple reality for me Bruce is all the above has been flogged to death by numerous shooters over a very long time period and surely if the results were any better than just a Plain-Jane barrel then we'd all know by now ??? We could look elsewhere I suggest .... and there's lots of areas to drill...

Re: Seb PodPad

Seems a no-brainer to me that a plate/board with some carpet or other uniform fabric on top will be more consistent than a Podpad ! Especially for free recoil as u say Chris. Go with a steel plate I reckon to gain a higher inertia value than a board gives. Why ? Because ya DON'T want the board or pl...

Re: Seb PodPad

Others may chip in, but IMO if you like me dont hold the rifle the pod pad will likely give elevation shots. I have tried a few times and as the top of the pad is not flat and a small groove is made if the feet are slightly on the rise of the groove then when shot is fired the gun sits down into th...

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

well gene beggs might be very poor and have no work ethic. looks like he can't afford a stock at all. with his big tuner on the end, and the plate an the barrel to rest on the bag as another tuner he is a real cop out artist. keep safe, bruce. So did Beggs apply just as many resources and effort as...

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

tony boyers loads and barrels that resist wind deflection? those point blank guys have certain advantages over long range shooters in terms of sheer accuracy. these are short bullets and slow twists. their bullets are so short, and twists so slow, they are running much lower stability than we requi...

Re: Reloading Equipment

The non micrometer Wilson bullet seating die is all I use and can accurately keep up with the seating depth changes just by measuring with the vernier the total die head length i.e. the top section with the protruding adjustable stalk. Remember to run a note book that allows you to write down any di...

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

Yes very interesting.

Ya know the guy who I would really take notice of re the theoretical side of this tuner debate would be Bryan Litz.
