Re: More on Barrel Tuners

Yes very interesting. Ya know the guy who I would really take notice of re the theoretical side of this tuner debate would be Bryan Litz. Yeah agreed. IMO it all comes down to what you need to fix. I'm confident if he assessed tuners from the question of - do they make groups smaller than a well tu...

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

Just the mere fact that Tony Boyer didn't use one might tell us something don't u think ? As I said, many very savvy shooters have decided not to go with them. Yet. To be honest - tells me nothing. :) It is noted though. I'll have to go and re read his book - but I believe I am correct when I ask.....

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

Nobody surely thinks they're new ? There are many very savvy shooters, from both sides ; the pro-tuner shooters or the waiting-on-more-evidence group who take a keen interest in this topic. It could truly be possible that in todays world with the hi quality of the various rifle components, plus the...

Re: Stock Rigidity

wsftr back boring in our game refers to opening up the muzzle to a larger diameter either with a boring bar or a back bore reamer and crowning the barrel internally. It creates a bloop tube. Rather than cut a blank back to take out the belled muzzle following factory lapping as all good smiths do a...

Re: Stock Rigidity

My head is hurting haha That’s shared pain of writing this stuff (lol) with an holistic view Rob. Housekeeping. Rob, it is essential to weigh up the personality of a barrel. Be very wary of modifying tapers or cutting threads on buttoned barrels at the muzzle. If you go as far to enlist a tuner, th...

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

assuming we are talking same lot berger bullets or customs same lot (gotta set the context so the rules apply) :) IMO bullet batching is a very fine tune step (wouldn't fit your use case assuming the above context is met) Weighing is simply to catch an outlier..arguably risk mitigation...this could...

Sungazer im pharqued if i know what page im on !!! I know damn well my gun is lacking in precision. I might have won a shoot the other day with it at Trentham but only because it blew some crazy winds and i never had a train wreck.

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

Has anyone ever taken a barrel to a musician or a music store where they have tuning equipment. If a barrel is struck with a metal striker (think like triangle) it will resonate at a certain frequency. I have no idea how this may fit into the equation of barrel tuning but thinking about it i think ...

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

varmintal has more than enough analysis of tuners. The thing with tuners - shooters argue about which is better, when the reality a tuner is just another tool to use to get to a desired state, it isn't the only way. It has been disproven that a tuner will produce smaller groups than without. followi...
