Re: hey blokes

I think you would more failures with rem 700 action more than Omark’s from what I have told of around the ranges . I have included sample of small cross which is not promited on ranges and one of large pin which displayed in bolt assembly Totally incorrect!!!!! Remington 700 actions love em or hate...

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 ...

Its a 9 twist bartlein HV barrel. ...yes i see what you mean about the prs, its based on the case on the left. My 300wsm230berg...

Re: New F Open Rifle

300 "shobby" is something John shobbrook and Jerome came up with. It's a 375 ruger with the shoulder pushed back and blown out so you end up with more neck length than a WM or Dakota and still plenty of capacity to push 230s. Ticks a lot of boxes :-) I like the 300 skadi which is the 300 ...

Re: hey blokes

I have been smithing Omark/Sportco rifles for the best part of 40 years. I have not found them to be any more prone to "miss-adventures" than any other action. The only "problems" I am aware of was with the old style bolthead retaining pin which broke often. I know of at least on...

Re: tell me about tuners for fclass

Gsells, I think you need to re read my post, and im not sure you understand barrel harmonics as well as you preach... One must think why you need to dampen/shift/alter the harmonics with orings to begin with..... Just a thought cheers I cant see anything wrong with this post, i call a spade a spade...

Re: tell me about tuners for fclass

I’ll go back to my original thought . Waste of time , don’t bother . I’ve commented a lot more than I should have ! As per usual :lol: . Regards Graham. Crikey Graham !!! Wal just suggests perhaps the gun has mechanical/setup prahblems. Mechanical problems are actual measureable tangible problems. ...

Re: tell me about tuners for fclass

I used a muzzle weight - well forward - on two 284s. They shot extremely well. The way the weights were attached actually squeezed the bore slightly at the muzzle which may also be beneficial. I believe they did improve accuracy and also improved the recoil characteristics of the rifles. They could...

Re: Wichester M17

Also who knows the take down screw threads Thanks Chop I think 30 TPI same as Winchester M70. No idea as to why the tang screw is angled, but all pattern 14 & 17 Enfields have this feature. I have successfully re tapped the takedown screw threads to 28 TPI, it can be hard going though. A bit of...

Re: Help... Hero to zero in one range

Thanks Ben its good to see I'm not the only one :) Having talked it through and knowing I'm not going mad / having kit issues is good. Dropping the final shot two weeks in a row was possibly more frustrating then the second range as I think I know why it happened. Mirage was the most significant ch...

Re: Help... Hero to zero in one range

I know that I struggle with mirage so it could be, but I would have expected to drop a few supers and maybe a 6 not that horror show! I keep toying with the idea of a Dasher or BRX but from what I have read it looks hard to justify the time and cost of fire forming. I still have some capacity left ...

Re: jongmans rifles

Matt is correct. I have seen 2 with shed lugs. I cut the front off the bolt of one of theses & installed an Omark bolt head. As far as I know it is still in service. There are better action choices out there.

Re: Barnard V block dimensions

I haven't had a look at the block vs the receiver screw hole locations but does the grade of ally make any difference here ? I'm guessing Barnard and most others use 6061 T6 ? Or maybe 6061 T6511 which gives a stronger harder ally than the T6 tempering process and machines better too. Or even 7075 ...
