Re: Mound Setup 101

joy stick rests FO are fantastic but not necessary for a beginner....if they can afford it sure go straight there.
Joysticks FTR - personal preference. The OZ pod concept is well worth a look. It fits nicely in between the mariner wheel and joystick options.

Re: Tuning Basics 101

After 39 posts no mention of the importance of primers and ignition? basic 101? Primers seating depth neck tension - should all be worked out in the first 25 rnds of the breaking in process, bullet holes in paper (group shapes/and their shot order) are not random... Another process that is overlook...

Re: Tuning Basics 101

I reckon the trickiest bit for tuning 101 is knowing what the holes in paper are telling you and making decisions from there. After that its the same steps that we all do - stick components together and go shoot them. I definitely agree to get the utmost out of the shoot the platform needs to be rig...

Re: Tuning Basics 101

Tuners aren't part of tuning basics 101 (IMO) Tuning basics 101 Decide what methodology you are going to use ladder, OCW, Cortina method etc. Decide what distance you are going to tune at and why. This distance needs to work with the methodology...ladders at 100yrds are unlikely to work Know what yo...

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: 6BR-AI loads wanted

Maybe something about the 6s thats a problem. Pity RWC didn't mention dimensions. I know some on this site have an issue with BL but his books and this reference shed reasonable light - for a rule of thumb if nothing else. http://bulletin.accurateshooter.com/2015/02/does-barrel-twist-rate-affect-muz...

Re: 6BR-AI loads wanted

I understood that specific testing had been done RE: the effect of twist rates on FPS and the impact was minimal. Stress on Jackets was another matter. In FTR for heavies its proven that more pressure via tighter bore groove dimensions doesn't translate to more FPS - in fact the opposite. i.e. if yo...

That must be some pretty good flight consistency to make it worthwhile reducing the BC.

Re: Bix n Andy Trigger Shoes

I'm not sure what you mean. Is the Barnard P trigger adjustable in its position? I've fond that the BnA bolts to the Barnard action fine but the shoe sits much further back, particularly with the curve in it and it sits much deeper into the stock so that the shoe touches the trigger guard. Not the d...

Bix n Andy Trigger Shoes

Hi, Does anyone know if the BnA 90 deg trigger shoe will fit into the the BnA trigger for the Barnard P? What I have found is that the BnA Barnard Trigger shoe is set back (relative to the original Barnard P trigger) by about 12mm so my finger ends up quite bent. I'm hoping the 90 deg shoe will corr...

Re: Ftr stock what’s the best.

OP - what stocks do you have access to? Depending on what you want to spend will dictate a lot as well. The theories of stock design can do your head in. Long and stiff has been a mantra for a while. 1K BR 6mm guys are experimenting with a slightly flexi forend for positive compensation benefits. Mo...
