Re: Tobler Actions

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

Re: Tobler Actions

Was not aware that Tobler made an action -- might have but not aware of it.
The only action I know that used an Omark bolt was the DALE -made in SA.

Re: Dual Stop Butts

Geelong has a fixed, covered shooting mound and a separate stop butt for each distance out to 900 yds.
There are a couple of others --North Arm I think is one, Cannon Hill at Belmont is another.

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. Heard of a few mishaps ( not omarks ) but that can usually be traced back to user error or just...

Re: Memory Tester - ADI 144gn projectiles

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

Re: Memory Tester - ADI 144gn projectiles

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.

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

Alan,
Maybe, theoretically, but the question was with respect to " handling " not rifle weight.

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

How can the way you handle a rifle have an effect on muzzle velocities?

Re: Mounting a Nightforce BR on a Sako s491 in .223

Phil, You need a tapered rail for mounting the scope on. A rail with 20 moa taper would then make your starting elevation at 300 around 12 moa. This would leave you 28 moa for elevating. However you would probably need 26 moa of that to get to 1000 yards --not enough left. That is one of the problem...

Re: Sierra 2156 base to ogive

Like all projectiles they vary.
Gyro's pic shows them at 0.390".
I have several batches and they vary between 0.456" and 0.474"
Within a batch, no more than 0.002" variation.
