Re: Bisley style shooting

Providing of course that each shot is timed, which I understand it is. (otherwise it would become a game of chess/strategy. delaying in order to fatigue your opponent/s). But tracking and ensuring fair play, seems like a challenge. Nah, the deal is to shoot with an erratic cadence, so that it bugge...

Re: Feet on concrete mounds

Re: Several primers not showing much pin strike

Just came across this on another forum. Maybe it's worth checking out: A bunch of our guys in northern England have just had CCI-450 problems too in 308 Palma brass. It seems that the cups of a recently imported batch are shallow and not all priming tools get them fully seated into the pocket with ...

Re: .308 Headspace

Wouldn't a set of go no go gauges tell you what you need to know at the rifle end? No, I wanted to be comfortable that virgin brass could be fired in my precision chamber without the need to jam. It's a pain in the arse fireforming if the load isn't functionally useful (accurate) too & I have n...
