Re: Coatings for dies to reduce clearances

I just heard that Luke Ester from ProCal bought a hard chrome set up purely for this purpose so I will see if he can do it.

Re: 280 Ai loads

Haven't shot mine for a few months now since moving to Perth but I'm back in Sydney next week and will reacquaint myself with it thankfully.

Re: New Two Box Chrono

It's more coin, but I reckon LabRadar is still the way to go if your pockets are deep enough.

Re: Precision Rifle Series is here!!! And It Looks to be BIG

It looks very hard ! Well at least at the top level ! I wonder if we will get to the same level as the Yanks ? Have a look at the 2015 final ! https://youtu.be/sNe-rR5JisQ They're on a different level over there in terms of organisation, sponsorship and practice. Guys shooting 6.5x47s are shooting ...

Won't be able to make it down unfortunately. I'd written this one off due to not having my rifle and have a bit of work to do unfortunately, at least the work is shooting related..

Re: The Golden Bullet

Wish I had my rifle in time for this Brad, but next year I'll definitely make the trip down. Good luck with the running of the event, sounds like a great weekend coming up.

Re: Nosler RDF projectiles.

These bullets are now in shops to purchase. I've picked up 2 boxes of the 105gr 6mm but won't be able to shoot them for 2-3 months until I can get my rifle over to WA. Claremont Firearms also have .22, 6.5 and .30 cal RDFs available.
