............. Cameron I think Rod was referring to the 6.5x284 I originally suggested. Brad, that makes sense. 6.5x284 = short barrel life. Cameron Yeah....that is what I meant. I am looking at rebarrreling to 284 for FO. ive had this idea for some time to make a 30-284 to get that tiny bit of capa...

Rod why do you think the barrel life was so bad? Pushing 6.5x284 velocities must be same pressure? That very short neck and steep shoulders? Just ordered a reamer for a 260 wildcat myself and hoping not to chew through barrels as quick as a 6.5x284 if I can help it. Its the same as a 284 pretty muc...

If you ask Linda (Southcape on here) nicely, she might lend you a few 155.5 FBBTs

My 260 INCH chambering worked pretty well while I was using it. I think the claim about the 6mm being better than the 6.5 just isn't true, you are simply not pushing it hard enough. My MV was 3200fps for the 123 6.5mm Scenar and 3060fps for the 139 Scenar. This will shoot inside any std 284, but not...

The savage is good value, it is a shame that Australians have to pay such a huge markup due to the importer high margins.

Rod If you compate a 155HBC and 155VLD they are pretty similar too. We have been trying a few things out just in the club shoots. Im sure someone will get a box of 155 hybrids or 155.5 fullbores to try soon. Hey mate, true enough for the VLD's, which are almost identical to the Lapua Scenar. We hav...

Shooting with no wind is like snow skiiing without snow - it just isnt the same experience.

I love wind, bring it on.

Interesting to note the comments about using illegal projectiles. I can pick a Berger 155.5 from a fair distance, as they look nothing like a HBC, and are much more streamlined than the SMK 2155. The Lapua Scenar 155 on the other hand looks quite similar to the HBC and would be very hard to pick on ...

No it isn't any different. Physics are what they are - no matter what the rifle or projectile, they all follow the same rules.

BC is dependent upon ( among other things ) Temperature, Barometric pressure, altitude and humidity. all which have as many combinations as lotto. So what's really the point as you spend most of your day calculating instead of shooting. :lol: Barry Winning is the point. The people we are competing ...
