Has anyone used Vihtavuori N160 in 308W

I am looking for advice on whether I am wasting my time in trying VV N160 in 308W with heavy bullets. Bullets would be from 208 to 215g. I have used N150 with heavy bullets in the past but it tends to spike too soon. I get great results with N150 and bullets from 155g to 185g. I have also tried N550...

Re: HBC 155.5

Barry can I pick your brains a little? Do you shoot the HBC bullets into or off the lands for best results?

Re: Problems with CCI 450s

The top two are showing very slight cratering and would appear to actually have been fired and went bang. Every time I have had a misfire, the firing pin indentation has had very round edges not the very defined edge like in your photo.

Re: Au Match Rifle & Long Range F Class + Ultra Long Range

Re: Kapooka march out Nov 16

The Burring Motel at Lake Albert is good. My in-laws used to stay there regularly when visiting Wagga. They do not have a restaurant and it is not close to any restaurants, but both the Kooringal Hotel and the Thomas Blamey Tavern are just a short drive. The Burringa Motel is just off Red Hill Road ...

Re: Question for the Omark experts

I used Sportco/Omark M44 rifles for 30+ years without the ejector. The last lot of brass I used was Lapua LR primer fitted, had something like 20 firings from each case before I retired it because the case head could no longer be sized down to fit easily in the chamber. That brass never showed any s...

Re: Stock type?

I agree that the stock looks like a Bill Barratt stock on the forend and that was my initial guess as to maker. However Bill Barratt didn't put adjustable cheek pieces on any of the stocks he made. Either someone has added the adjustable cheek piece later or it may have been made by Bill Heald who d...

Re: FS bench source case annealing machine

Jim The 400 gram gas bottles the Bench Source annealer uses, are obtainable at many outdoor/camping supply shops. I found it more convenient though, to convert mine to use 2 x 8.5kg bbq gas bottles. All the hoses and fittings required were readily available at the local outdoor shop. I would recomme...

Re: Weaver rings & picattiny rails

Just apply some slight flame heat to the epoxy and it turns to a soft gum if you want to remove the base. Or apply a hot iron to the scope base for a couple of minutes, which I think probably removes any risk of overdoing the flame heat. This method also good for removing glue in bedding jobs. (hot...
