Re: 22 wild cat

I have had a 22-250 AI for over 20 yrs and had numerous barrels on it from 14-8 twist. It is only a hunting rig but I have taken it to the club on occasion for some fun. With an 8 twist 80gr Sierra @ 3500 was no problem and it shot pretty darn good considering it was not a Match barrel and action is...

Re: Submerging barrels in cleaning solutions

Helmar is great stuff, after cleaning l bore scope and carbons is gone. Just don't over scrub or you need a range for it to settle down. The Helmar copper remover isn't as good, needs improving. Trevor ,I will have to disagree! My testing over the last 12 months has shown me that the Copper Remover...

Re: Submerging barrels in cleaning solutions

Methanol is CORROSIVE to Stainless Steel !! Even with an oil additive I would not soak my Barrel in it especially if I'm only trying to save $10 bucks on cleaning fluid!! If you want a cheap cleaning fluid that works try Helmar, at $17 per 500ml its cheap and does a great job on my Saums and Its all...

Re: 6ppc loads

I found 2219 a good all rounder in the PPC. 65 Vmax with federal 205 primers and start at 27gn would be my pick for varmint load. How juicy is 27gr? This is in a varmint rifle so it probably wont handle what a good BR action would My guess is not that juicy!! I run 28.6 in my PPC with Berger 65BT w...

Re: Given Current Component Availability...

Thinking outside the box a little. How do the 90’s go in a 22BR?? The 22BR with 90gn pills punches above its weight. When i first started in F class I used a 22BR to win a few queens and scoped quite a lot of 60.9 and 60.10s with it. I still have a slower twist 22BR running 75gn pills and it has al...

Re: Given Current Component Availability...

Ken Melgard has a new 184gn 7mm bullet so it might be time to give our local supplier a run!! I would give them a go just so didn't have to support the US team. Are they ready yet?? I'll contact Ken direct. Geoff They are on his updated price list, I have emailed Ken waiting for a reply. In a Saum ...

Re: Given Current Component Availability...

For Club shooting only or maybe a prize meet here or there the 6BR or any of its variants (Dasher,BRA,BRX etc) would be my pick. They are not fussy on Bullets and they are still very cheap compared to larger cals. Powder is easy and with only 30-32 gns of 2208 it lasts for ages. Accuracy wise there ...

Re: 7mm SAUM Rechamber/Barrel Life

FWIW , I have tried probably every form of Carbon removing solvent over many years and the best one i have used for removing and softening up carbon is Helmar. You will still need an abrasive periodically but Helmar is great for loosening up Hard carbon is Saums . Brett, Is that H4000 Silicone Oil?...

Re: 7mm SAUM Rechamber/Barrel Life

Hey Azzo , If it is VERY heavy carbon you can get it out just takes some work. If your going to re chamber I would try it anyway but you will need clean it bare and maybe Iosso may be the only thing that will touch it!! ALL the carbon needs to come out so soaking for a few days may help but all depe...
