Re: Copperhead projectile approval?

As the NRAA gunsmith at that time I tested & reported on these bullets along with the JLK bullets. My report recommended the approval of Ken's bullets on the basis of quality & being Australian made. I never had any response to my recommendation. Consequently the JLK's were approved ...........

Re: Using CLR to clean barrels

Anyone here tried it? Seems to be becoming popular in the US with good reports? There are MANY excellent purpose made products available, so I would be VERY cautious about putting any acidic cleaning agent in any barrel of mine. Keith H.

Re: Reversing a Barrel when Rechambering

I've read all the comments and I'll give you my thoughts. First I will assume a new barrel. In regards to the direction of rifling and a cut rifled barrel and if it's a straight blank. Which end you thread and chamber doesn't matter. The lay of the finish is in direction of bullet travel. So don't ...

G'day Folks, I have a 30", 1.25" straight 260 Ackley barrel that I am rechambering to 6.5 grendel, 20" long for uses other than f class. The barrel has around 600 rounds through it. The smith (I won't name names at present) suggested that since the barrel does not have canted lands, ...

Re: 28 Nosler

Just wondering if anyone knows of a reamer in OZ Aaaaah yes bigger is alw...

The extractors & ejectors are interchangeable between Omark & Angel actions. No other parts are interchangeable that I am aware of.

Re: WTB extractor for Musgrave action.

Hi Rod. Extractors between a mauser 98 bolt and the musgrave are all but the same We have two musgraves. One is the same, one has a more tapered end. I would think it would take maybe a little grinding to adjust at the most. Cheers Adrian 20180630_141332.jpg 20180630_141418.jpg Great, thanks for th...

Re: Carbon cleaning methods curious after borescoping club barrels

Barrel cleaning is one of the most misunderstood areas in any form of shooting in my opinion. The amount of ruined barrels that have crossed my bench in 40 years of gunsmithing that have been ruined by neglect would stagger you!!!! Over the years I have used many barrel solvents & oils, most of ...

Re: hey blokes

I have seen the photo of one of the guys face. its a nasty mess. The bolt failure was real. So have I, if the bolt head retaining pin is left out, the bolt will come back. This happened on my home range several years ago. The bolt ended up 15 yards behind the rifle narrowly missing 2 people behind ...
