Re: Copperhead projectile approval?

I am happy with Ken's Response and his product! I will be using 7 mm copperheads pills
When my stocks get low again . I found them vary accurate with the very limited testing done.

Re: 7 mm 178 copperheads blog

Geoff, The 178gr bullet Graham has in his photo is not the 178gr VLD bullet you are thinking of which did require a short throat... This bullet is made on a new set of dies... With a 189fb it will seat 3/4 of the way down a 284 neck comfortably and touch the lands.. Cheers Alan Sorry Alan , I basic...

Re: 7 mm 178 copperheads blog

They need a short throat, ideal, 8 Twist but you will find that out. Sorry Geoff , these are the 178’s not the new 184 ‘s . Yes 9 twist maybe a stretch with the 184’s. But u never know until trying it . The 178’s are 1.478 “ Miller stab of 1.63 at 2830 FPS . Over 1 is stable but again depending on ...

Re: The Future

GSells I go to a club where they use MB sometimes and they place a barrier between the MB and the rest . It's lined with noise reducing foam . And they had a noise metre there a while back . It was much less noisy on the other side of it ... But the other issue we have is most PRS shooters don't wa...
