Re: Submerging barrels in cleaning solutions

I use & recommend Boretech solvents, caution should be exercised when leaving it in the barrel for extended periods. Reason being is it is a water based product & offers no protection from air born moisture in high humidity climates. This is not the fault of the solvent and is climatic. I l...

Re: Submerging barrels in cleaning solutions

take a tip from me. do not leave boretech in a barrel. bruce. Which boretech product are you referring to Bruce when you say not to leave it in a barrel? I use the boretech eliminator as instructed on the label and it says you can leave a small amount in there. Why do you believe you shouldn't be? ...

Re: throat angle

I have not had a tip fall out but another club member has had two. One happened in the box of projectiles, the other he showed to me - it had been loaded but in his bullet box a tip had fallen out. He is not trying to straighten any - they are seated with a quality seater. I would estimate that he ...

O.K. Graham I do not wish to throw cold water on what seems to you to be a good idea & I mean you no disrespect, but when you make technical posts you must be sure there will be NO ramifications from what you post. From a technical point of view this is NOT a good idea!! It does not pose any imm...

Re: 2019 what’s your plans?

Hi All, 2018 is done on the shooting calendar so plans are underway for next year. Think I’ll do the vic and SA Queen’s along with some Bisley shoots which are great fun. Any shoot with manual targets is appealing as I think they will disappear over time :? So what are your plans? My plans are to m...

Re: 280 AI information Blog

Sorry , but I guess my strategy for a Queens will be shoot my .284 up to 800 yds or 900 yds then switch barrels to the 280 ai for 1000 yds . Switching barrels during a comp is something I’ve been practicing. And I still need more practicing . It did cost me a opm just recently. But you will never g...

Re: 280 AI information Blog

Hi Tim , no different than 2213sc . It burns pretty clean . I don’t think I can download any lower as pressures seem to be too low and ignition problems I imagine will start to happen. I’m hoping that using a slow powder will extend barrel life . Again time will tell and most definitely will have t...

Can't help with supply, you will need to shop around. There are several variations available, weight range is 8oz to 2 lbs. Price range seems to be around $350.00 depending on the variant.
