Re: Australia vs New Zealand F-Open Teams Match

Graham,
It is welcome news to hear that Australia has a FTR team as well as the F Open team,you will enjoy shooting there.
Rather than go back in your hole,as you mentioned,I think you should be an official correspondent.
Mike.

Re: .308 Headspace

John, I to have been troubled by this conflict of measurement.The first thing I will ask you,saying that you measured with a Stoney point device,is the thing actually 0.400"?,mine isn't and I get measurements more like 1.617"to 1.618"" depending on the barrel.The new Lapua blue b...

Re: Several primers not showing much pin strike

No company is going to admit fault on this scale. There is a dodgy batch end of story and it has been identified and we all move on what is the issue here?

Re: Several primers not showing much pin strike

Chris So are you suggesting that this particular batch of cci primers had no yellow compound within the primer itself... if so could you please post a photo of this, better yet one that has been struck with no compound.. This could be a way of getting your situation/findings to the right people.. C...

Re: Use of a signature block

Alan, Have noticed of late that a fair few members here dont have a signature block or dont actually sign there comments. It is quite fustrating sometimes not knowing the actual name of the posters and peoples nick names / user names make it difficult to determine the individual. Would you consider...

Re: Several primers not showing much pin strike

The whole thing about new reloaded cases needing to be jammed into the lands for the first firing to stop misfires is concerning to me,if there was any validity to this idea,factory rounds would be giving a fair percentage of misfires,as far as I have seen,this is not the case.
What is going on?

Re: Several primers not showing much pin strike

Phil,
The way I read your post,you have small indentations on the fired primers,just to make sure of the situation,did the rounds fire?,or did they misfire.? I have plenty of CCI-200 and Br-2's if you would like to try some different ones.

Re: CCI Primers

Being having troubles with the 280 Ai and cci's . But I believe it's more a reloading issue ( being my fault , not the primer's ) . Definitely work better than the Fed 210's with beautiful waterline! I was watching one of your video's shooting and you had some misfires,in my opinion you were rather...
