Re: Brass prep tasks- case volume, primer pockets et al

I thoight I'd pull this topic from the Alpha munitions thread due to some interesting comments. Case volume. As i understand it, case volume (or rather the effect of case volume) relates not so much to the gross case volume, but rather to the net volume after loading ie the gap. I know pressure tra...

Re: Brass prep tasks- case volume, primer pockets et al

Hang on , I’ll say that is not always the case with pressure. But there seems in my experience with slower powders at 100% or slightly compressed loads , a reduction in SD’s

Re: Brass prep tasks- case volume, primer pockets et al

tim, loading black powder cartridges, a starting load is a full case to the base of the bullet. test that load, and then increasing charge wts compressed to the same column height. somewhere there will be an optimum compression wt for best grouping. these loads often exhibit e.s.

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

MB’s need to be allowed or the prs gang will overlook it . But of course with precautions that must be achieved to mitigate muzzle blast . 8 kg bit much , maybe 6.5 kg max . Other than that looks good !

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

North Arm’s rules would be a good start if Scott R wants to chime in . Or Seddo’s rules.

Re: AUSTRALIAN FCWC TEAM SELECTION

Anyway, can we as I said before , move on . Both Craig and Den would have and or will succeed. We need put the decision behind us and move forward. A debriefing is always a good idea as we can always improve. There are some serious hurdles ( Safety being one ) that have to be addressed for the Manag...

Re: AUSTRALIAN FCWC TEAM SELECTION

Having the privilege to be a firer in the winning NSW F-open team last year at Lower Light with Dennis as the captain I whole heartedly wish him and the rest of the team the best of luck in South Africa. I am confident they will represent Australia very well!!! We should be throwing support behind ...

Re: 280 AI information Blog

Actually just recalling, Trans Tasman and NZ Queens , barrel changing behaviour lol! Friday practice started with 7/08 ai then changed to Bart pink bits .284 and tuned load. That change was at 900 yds . Saturday practice and first time the team got together, was pink bits Bart .284 for the longs . S...

Re: 280 AI information Blog

Sorry , but I guess my strategy for a Queens will be shoot my .284 up to 800 yds or 900 yds then switch barrels to the 280 ai for 1000 yds . Switching barrels during a comp is something I’ve been practicing. And I still need more practicing . It did cost me a opm just recently. But you will never g...

Re: 280 AI information Blog

Good luck with it Hi Tim , no different than 2213sc . It burns pretty clean . I don’t think I can download any lower as pressures seem to be too low a...
