Simon,

Silver Mountain SOLO ET's

Hi All,
Anybody have any feed back on these targets, good bad or otherwise?
Clubs' thinking about installing a couple. Price seems OK but how are they performance wise?
Thanks in advance.

Re: Tobler Actions

I don't believe there was any part of the Angle 80 that was interchangeable with an Omark.

The only action I know that used an Omark bolt was the DALE -made in SA.

Re: Dual Stop Butts

Re: promoting the nraa image

After being given an option to have or not to have, I am now being forced to pay for a magazine I do not want--is that democratic?

Re: hey blokes

Never heard of one but that does not mean it has not happened. Pretty much unlikely providing users stick to manufacturers recommendations re loads and type of powder, but then everybody does not do that.

Scott,
We stopped using ADI projectiles in 1997 - that was when the Sierra 2155 was approved.

Last lot I purchased ( batch 17 no crimping groove ) cost around 18c. At that time 18c was considered expensive so moves were made to allow other projectiles , which were about the same price but infinitely better. Some ADI projectiles ( batch 14 for example) were exceptionally good but quality gene...

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

Much less Alan as even with shouldering there is backward movement -- a shoulder is not a fixed object ( like a tree ) but even then it's only a relative increase, not an actual increase, certainly nothing a chronograph not attached to the rifle would register.
