Re: F-Open Calibre Poll - All Round

For me it has to be 7mm. As I tend to think outside the box, I can't vote above because my chosen 7mm variations are not listed, nor would I expect them to be. :roll: :roll: :roll:

Re: Trigger questions

I recommend CLP Break Free, in my opinion the very best trigger lube available. Clean triggers with Super Cheap Auto aerosol degreaser, blow out with an air hose. Saturate the trigger with Break Free, let drain off on a paper towel then wipe the trigger with a soft lint free cloth & install. Kei...

Re: Nightforce Benchrest 12-42 x 56 running out of elevation

What Matt is referring to is "tolerance stacking"! The Omark receiver has a thread into which at one point or other has had an adaptor screwed into it, then a barrel is screwed into that. All of those "fit ups" have tolerances & if they all "stack" in the same direc...

Re: Help identifing Omark barrel

Sportco's std rifling form was 4 groove, but I am pretty sure they made some 6 groove barrels when they released the model 44D. An indicator would be the diameter of the front sight bed, I am betting it's .800", this was standard for 44D barrels, as was 14" twist.

Re: Help identifing Omark barrel

From these two pics I would say you have a Omark barrel made either by Sportco (early) or MAB (later), it appears to be a 44B contour & will be 14" twist (Sportco) or 12" twist (MAB) & will have 4 grooves & lands. These pics rule out SAF manufacture.

Re: Help identifing Omark barrel

Quite a lot of these barrels surfaced about 20 or so years ago made by SAF possibly for Black Mountain, but not distributed by Black Mountain. There were a number of in the white blank barrels about as well.

Re: Is my scope Broke ?

Ok scope back on rifle . I did do some retuning work also but rifle works again . I think I might send my scope away every 12 months or so and pay them to give it a service. Maybe just a prudent thing to do to avoid a situation as I went through. Which I wouldn’t wish upon anyone as you are just se...

That's what I use but I find that if I use to much it can become sticky #-o


You are using the wrong silicone spray, try the WD40 Silicon spray, definitely not sticky.

Re: Moly Magic

The CLR is the way to go. I use 50/50 CLR , hot water in class jars. Tumbled till you are happy with the amount of moly removed. Hard to get it all off. I stop when its mostly gone from the bearing part of the bullet.. the thing i love about CLR is it leaves the bullets smooth and shinny. A word of...

Re: Is my scope Broke ?

I have always recommended that at the end of the day's shooting to wind your scope to it's 1000 yd setting to "ease springs". Think of it the same as de-cocking your bolt. Elementary my dear Watson!!!!

Re: NECK CLERANCE - IS IT IMPORTANT?

Perhaps it went like this..... In the beginning there was brass and it shot well one day a shooter said let there be better precision and so turned necks. there was better precision, then there were split necks so the shooter said give me less clearance between the turned necks and the chamber and ...

Re: NECK CLERANCE - IS IT IMPORTANT?

I have never met a newcomer who fully appreciates just how easy it is to degrade good cases with inadequate attention to detail during neck turning. Most agree that, if neck turning standards are perfect, brass fired in a perfect chamber/barrel will have few or no problems. Even with very fine clea...
