Re: RECOIL and THE BLOEMING CASE

That and wind reading while bisley style shooting. I’m no genius at it, but if we cant steer accurate 284’s and saums in wind shooting bisley style which is what it will be in South Africa, then there is no point expecting larger recoiling calibers to just magically go in the middle. Got to walk bef...

Re: BURRIS XTR-II F CLASS SCOPE 8-40 FFP with MOA reticle

I tried for years to have a dual purpose hunting and f class rifle. As good as it will get is multiple scopes and multiple barrels and possible multiple stocks. I know its not what you want to hear, but everything is a compromise when you try to do a dual rifle. If your after a saving of a few dolla...

Re: BURRIS XTR-II F CLASS SCOPE 8-40 FFP with MOA reticle

Bought 5 different brand rifle scopes before I bought a nightforce comp. Couple have bought 3 nightforce scopes for the same money and then wouldn’t still have to look for 2 more and find the funds. Buy once, cry once.

Re: F Class Competition in Australia

The thing about rocking up Ana shooting those 55gr sierras is you will make 600y barely then no further as they will go subsonic. Have done this. Good fun, but you will get caught in bad wind with a poor bc. Pretty much similar to all hunting bullets. We don’t let hunting guns past 500m at our club ...

Wonder how things will go with 7-7.5 twist barrels to spin those heavy bullets. There hasn’t been much publicised success with the 195’s in 7mm but those 183’s seem to go alright.

Re: 6.5 SLR

Had a similar one, the 260 improved with 30 degree shoulder. Just load 260 case and shoot and it would form out nice. Accurate too both fireforming and normal loads. Easy on recoil and pretty good in the wind. 2870 was the load with 140 hybrids. That wasn’t pushing it either. 2209 was choice of powd...

Re: Carbon donut

No need to add polish to a media. Who knows what residue might do to powder and what it produces when it burns. And if it could cause a reaction with copper jacket too... whole new can of worms.

Re: 6 mm Dasher

Mine was a plain unbushed firing pin rem 700, krieger 236 barrel 31.6 2206h cci br4 and 105 hybrid. 3030fps and it used to hammer. Barrel went south after 1000 rounds and from memory the throat grew pretty fast too. Does indicate it was warm but man it shot!

Re: 6 mm Dasher

Interesting Frank, most dashers I know of use around 36gr h4350, 33gr varget and 31.5 or thereabouts of h4985 all for around 3000fps.
