Re: Tuning Basics 101

It'll be great to have you aboard Rod. I think separate threads would be best. How about starting with a Gear and Mound Setup 101? I will do. First I would like to get to a range in the next few weeks and get some pictures of the common , simple mistakes I see regularly. For now though, with shooti...

[quote="Wal86"]After 39 posts no mention of the importance of primers and ignition? basic 101? Primers and ignition ? That pommie guy Laurie has done a lot of tests on some of this stuff and put it out there for us to read. Good on that man. One of the problems with these tests to me is ho...

Re: Tuning Basics 101

As Alan has thankfully reminded me , the subject is tuning. I just do get sidetracked on my "platform fetish" so easily, cos that's what I know and do - build radical stocks for my toys. Always have. And sometimes they work bla bla bla ... Tell ya'll something that took me a while to cotto...

Re: Tuning Basics 101

I totally hear u about the basics Brett. If the platform aint right ( and just quietly I've seen a few platforms that I wouldn't touch with a barge pole ) then the best it's gonna get is some good shooting in the easy conditions - when the operator has the time to hold thier mouth just right to get ...

Re: Tuning Basics 101

Its really the tip of the iceberg isnt it Brett!? The first I really saw of them was Cam and Julie McEwen. Amazing people and very generous with their time ans knowlege. They were mainly using them as a fixed weight to widen the node.. . . . . There may have been other northerners and far northerne...

Re: Tuning Basics 101

Great idea Brett, but if the top guys ( yourself included ) don't wanna talk about the stuff that really matters then are we stuck with lots of waffle from guys who aint TOP shooters ? Rob Kerridge. BTW u Ozzies r waaay ahead of us over ere. Yes I'm already sounding flippant. I just get bored easily...

Re: Concentricity gauge

gyro, when the sizing die is lacking quality. I wonder if bushing dies are made In 2 passes with the die body being one, then the bushing recess being another. this offers great potential for Monday morningitis to rule supreme. bruce.

Re: Concentricity gauge

redding comp dies are no guarantee if min runout. don't ask me how I know this. and don.t ask me how I set the die up. sizing is the thing with reducing runout. if you can't size straight, no amount of tricky seating will help more than a little. I have a custom 284 sizer for 284 win made in aust, ...

Re: Concentricity gauge

I remember a guy over here with too much money and not enough clues and he was using a Hornady one ( I think it was red ) that referenced the case off the rim. Not very clever because that would rely on the case rim being properly concentric to the case wall body ! I told him that was dumb but he ju...

Re: Sightron new scope purchase

My Sightron SIII 10-50 FAILED. That was about 8 years back. The side parallax knob stripped internally. When it got replaced ( it was probably not repaired because it was never designed to be a repairable item !!! ) I chose instead an SIII 8-32x56 replacement from the dealer and it has never let me ...

Re: 6BR-AI loads wanted

Hi I am getting away from the original topic but Gyro my last encounter with a 3 groove Lija was enough to not only steer me away from that brand of a barrel and also button barrels. The cost of purchasing, posting and getting a fclass barrel home on your rifle in Australia can be around $1200 AUD....

Re: Sightron new scope purchase

Probably best u narrow the question down to a specific model/s of the current Sightron range. One thing I've noticed now is how some of the leading modern scope manufacturers are flooding the market with a very large range of scopes at various price points. I suspect they are doing this to try and c...
