Re: Fireforming 30-06 brass into 280 ai as promised.

[ Keith, Are you referring to the cases ending up too short for a true 280 Ackley chamber? If so, would you mind expanding on this? Hey guys I appreciate the scrutiny, it’s always constructive and test the information. Yes , if this is it Kieth ?? 30/06 brass is about 40 thou shorter from memory. T...

O.K. Graham I do not wish to throw cold water on what seems to you to be a good idea & I mean you no disrespect, but when you make technical posts you must be sure there will be NO ramifications from what you post. From a technical point of view this is NOT a good idea!! It does not pose any im...

Hi Bruce . Being a plumber I’ve got a fair idea of when it’s right . Again another trial and error thing . Tempilaq may help . Cam Mac always told me “ Dark room till u just see it glow dull red . “

Re: Fireforming 30-06 brass into 280 ai as promised.

Here is a pic of annealling the necks . If you can afford an amp machine or a bechsource great . If your tight like me just a drill and a map torch will do in a dark room . Stop as soon as the neck is cherry red ( dullish). Some say that maybe too much . But if you go colder you may run the risk of ...

Re: How to hit the bullseye at 900 yd?

Plinked a couple 5 shot groups this arvo. One at 200 and one at 400yd. Had .5 moa left wind dialed for 200 and 1.25 moa left wind for 400. This is brand new lapua cases and going off the 8 moa comeup needed at 400 my velocity is way down. I might even use this load to fireform some brass at the 200...

Re: How to hit the bullseye at 900 yd?

And what group size or shape do you like to see? And at what distance? Is it common to use different loads out of same gun to suit the different distances we see 300-900 yards or do guys just have one load for everything? Ok my opinion, jumping is for hunters lol! I’ve always advanced timed my load...

Re: How to hit the bullseye at 900 yd?

Plenty of goof advice above so no need for me to say the same thing again . Only thing I can add is buy a good ballistics app such as JBM on your iPhone . After loading in all of your info and it must be correct ( eg rubbish in equals rubbish ) . You will see there is a pattern with wind speeds in M...
