Re: Vortex Golden Eagle 15-60x52 Thoughts

Well Michael, you have had a look through mine and I did offer you the chance to shoot my second stage in yesterday's heat! I'm more than happy with both of mine. I looked closely at the NF Comp and the Kahles K1050 but I find the Vortex easier to get behind, and I don't find the glass on the NF bet...

Re: Prefered primer for 280AI and AR2217

Hi Steve, Matt Paroz recently chambered a 280AI for me. Barnard action with a 32" 8.5 twist Bartlein hanging off it. Running 180gr VLDs. Approaching 200 rounds and it has sped up but doesn't like 60gr of 2217. It is happy between 59 and 59.5gr of 2217 and I'm currently running 59.5gr of 2217 wi...

Re: Lyman gen 6

Just looking at electronic despensers. Anyone played with a gen 6. I have a Gen 5 which I am happy with and a friend of mine owns a Gen 6 which he is happy with. He compared some thrown charges on a set of individual scales and reckoned it was pretty spot on as far as accuracy is concerned. RCBS ha...

Re: New March scopes now advertised

I have one of the prototypes and been using over the past few weeks, it's optics are better than both the 10-60 and 5-50. Looking forward to seeing what it's like in good conditions as conditions here lately have pretty ordinary. Matt P I'd like to have a look at that if you have it at the range th...

Re: Nosler RDF projectiles.

I'm interested to see when they will land here. I read a couple of reports on the Hide' and 6mmBR from some shooters who apparently trialled them and the claimed BC appears to be conservative this time around. Whether they are easy to tune and as consistent as the good old Bergers will be the key.

New March scopes now advertised

For those who may be in the market for a new F-class scope and have deep pockets, March have just advertised their new High Master scope. A couple of benchrest options but for the F-classers there is a new 10-60x56 with 34mm tube now:

Re: New Vortex Golden Eagle F-Class Scope

To me, it doesn't seem like the price gap between the Vortex and NF Comp is large enough to risk purchasing an unknown product over one of, if not THE, most reputable brand in the industry. I was fortunate enough to pick both of mine up at substantial discount which made it a no brainer alongside t...

Re: Barrel Cool device

Only just found this on the net. What a great gizmo. Would be very handy and save time when load testing if your like me and don't like running your barrel past warm. It says it's used by the US F-Open team. http://barrelcool.com/ I have one and like it. It's coming in handy at this time of year. C...

Re: Sierra TMK projectiles

They're a bloody expensive bullet, so they would want to be good to tempt most shooters away from Bergers.

Re: Buying a reamer

Cheers, thanks for clarifying that.

Cool. Pardon my ignorance as I'm not overly familiar with them but did you just order a Finishing reamer?

Buying a reamer

Hey guys, this might be a silly question, but are there any issues in buying reamers through PTG? Are there any issues with shipping to Australia or are these things blocked under ITAR? I am thinking about buying a reamer but thought I'd check in here to see if anyone has gone down this path previou...

Small primer pocket, might be good for a hot 6mm??


I think you're right. US shooters are frequently necking down the Creedmoor to 6mm for the PRS series. I think the addition of the small primer pocket helps its cause so it would probably be worthwhile testing.
