Re: Rifle stock keels??

Because the gun is still gonna track wrong Denis until u get the bag-riding parts of the gun in line.

Re: Rifle stock keels??

The whole point Brad with an "adjustable keel " is you can correct the angle variations that may exist between the front and back bag-riding sections. Even a very small amount of misalignment between the front and back will compromise the way the gun tracks. The scope cross hairs position ...

Re: Rifle stock keels??

Watch the video where Tom puts the camera upnto the scope and moves the gun. Then watch him rattle down a detail. Pretty impressive but not practical for f class where mounds differ in shape and angle and consistency. Would take a long time to set up back and forth, we can’t shoot that quick anyway...

Re: Starting out in F Standard - Tikka T3x?

Correction : I hear the tikka I mention above has had an after-market custom barrel fitted. Sorry.

Re: Starting out in F Standard - Tikka T3x?

Now re the T3 Tikka promotions above I'd have to agree they are a well priced rifle that can shoot well ...... there's a guy over here in a club across the island a ways who shoots a Tikka T3 in 223 and shoots it VERY well just off a Harris bipod. He's beaten guys with much more expensive gear. I be...

Re: Starting out in F Standard - Tikka T3x?

I can't comment on F Standard but I'll put some ideas out to bear in mind. Potential "Factory Rifle" problems : Bore of barrel maybe not finished well enough such that bore roughness will mean u will foul-out quickly and accuracy will deteriorate. Chamber dimensions may be loose/large. Sto...

Re: Stocks for Musgrave Actions

The Musgrave my mates got is a big solid action with a solid bottom ( no mag cutout ) and the recoil lug is cast into the base. It's got a bloody big totally flat bottom, except for the recoil lug up front which is proud of the base. If I remember rightly the base on my mates one could do with milli...

Re: Alpha munitions brass

Exactly Malcolm. Where's the published results of a PROPER test ? Litz is getting a bit of a bollocking here, when he's someone who has done a lot to wake people up from clinging to folklore and myths ? I could do a test myself as I believe I've got a gun accurate enough to generate worthwhile data ...

Re: Alpha munitions brass

Thanks Peter. But in defence of Mr Litz seems to me he has done a LOT towards attempting to debunk much of the wives tales and folklore that are sooooo prevalent in this sport ! Even if it's not all 'gospel' at least it gets you thinking ?

Re: Alpha munitions brass

Peter. Please define your last sentence ? And has ANYONE ever properly tested case weight variation vs long range accuracy ? If we use Lapua cases we need not bother weighing ? I do and don't weigh them. I'm waiting for that guy Bryan to publish some test results.

Re: LAPUA 308 BRASS

Sorry to hear about your undies Wal.

What I'm wanting to hear is some proven advice from proven results that we don't need to be buying Lapua brass to shoot consistently well ? If not guess I better stick with Lapua.

Re: LAPUA 308 BRASS

Interesting discussion. So are we ( as in many of us comp shooters ) buying Lapua cases just because they are SUPPOSED to be better than the other choices ? I am as I've just assumed they were. I never weigh them ( as I suspect it's just another fairy tale that it's worth doing that ) so I don't kno...

Re: Seb Mini Joystick Tension

Just take it apart Jase ? Can't be that complicated surely plus then you'll get to learn exactly what's going on with all the internals. I took my Shadetree Top apart then modified/improved it ! It never surprises me nowadays to find things that need sorting with any of the shooting gear. Regards Ro...

Re: WTB - LH F Class rig

It's simple lads, as some above well know : if the loading port ( and maybe the bolt too ) are to the same side as your body then the gun-management stuff is made a lot simpler. It's about making everything that happens on the mound as simple and trouble free as possible. That stuff is hugely import...
