Re: canting reticle to allow for spin drift

Seeing as it's not an exact science because of all the other variables, wrongly or rightly, I just trusted my ballistics app after feeding in all the right info. As previously said, after a few shoots I could see I needed to go an extra click over what I have written in the photo.

Re: canting reticle to allow for spin drift

Keith I don't have as much experience as you but having been dialling in spin drift for the last 12 months of 6 years shooting, I can say without doubt that the effect of NOT dialling in spin drift can easily be seen in complete direction changes which happens regularly. The spin drift adjustment ca...

Which D/P action is best?

Hi All, Interested to hear some experience from shooters and gunsmiths. In considering the prospect of a future dual port build, what are the comparisons between a Stolle Panda, Borden BRMXD and BAT 3LL. Which is the better action and why? Do any have wear issues more significant than another when t...

Re: canting reticle to allow for spin drift

I use an App called Ballistic to get me started. Its close enough and then experience fine tunes it. 0.875 moa at 1000y in the case of the above .308 (1 extra click over what's written) equals 8.75" x 2.54cm = 22.54 cm. So yours sounds about right. Your close enough that you couldn't read that ...

Re: canting reticle to allow for spin drift

I asked the forum about dialling for spin drift a little while ago. The canted scope idea was suggested but fairly quickly shot down. Your right in that dialling wind will cause elevation but its in your favour with a correctly canted scope. If you dial left for a left wind that should theoretically...

Re: 2209 with 30 cal 155.5 Bergers

I've never thought ES or SD was important.. I reckon its all BS Hahahaha, Them's fight'n words! :lol: :lol: Not on their own, but in conjunction with group size and shape they are. The only time I've seen a justifiable disregard for them is in short range BR. That's a bold statement to make in a lo...

Re: Cartridge Runout

I use Redding comp dies and a Forster Co-Axe. I measure the neck run out of approximately 5 random cases (maybe a few more to find an upper limit) of the batch every time I re-size brass. Only to keep an eye on things. I have records of every batch I prep in case I need to refer back to it if there'...

Re: FCWC 2021

In an instance like this (and others), would it be effective to write a petition for each State, have the Fclass community members sign the relevant one and then have one councillor from each state submit the petition / letter?

Re: BEST SCOPE FOR F OPEN

None taken, but your assuming I didn't follow your approach. I bought it anyway. Although I ask, listen and appreciate, I like to try things for myself as I see fit. Nothing teaches like experience. Briefs glimpses of a product rarely tell a full story. You'd have to borrow a scope and shoot with it...
