Re: Compressed load?

44gr of 2208 behind a 215. . . . I'd say your pretty close to your limit especially if you have a short enough throat to be giving a compressed load in a factory rifle. 2500fps is pretty fast in a 24" barrel!

how many times can you fire a case before the primer becomes loose?

Re: NRAA incorporates IBS 600yd BR into the SSR's.

Good work guys!!

I think this may become a popular discipline for those new and experienced in long range shooting!

Is heavy gun only 5 shots at 600?

Re: Barrel speed up patterns an experiences.

I currently have a barrel that speeds up about 1fps for every shot just due to fouling. It's easy to remove but it can easily leave you scratching your head on velocity numbers.

hearing protection

Hi all! I have always used earplugs for hearing protection for a few reasons. I got used to wearing them all day during my trade, the don't foul on the cheek piece and it's easy to wear a broad brim hat. Recently doing more coaching and planning on being around a lot more shooting I have been thinki...

Re: CCI Primers

I had issues with the batch of primers I used in Belmont for the last nationals. Check your plots Richard I would regularly get poor ignition and and one or more out the bottom per detail. I chased the problem thinking it was firing pin / spring related cleaning, polishing, honing everything but as ...

Re: Which action is best - 2/3 or 4 lug?

I'm far from against a 3 lug Barnard. In fact I'm in the process of having the gun plumber assemble one as we speak :-) The main factors for going down this path against another BAT were price and availability of the action and also parts. Everything from springs, rails, stocks etc etc are much chea...

Re: Which action is best - 2/3 or 4 lug?

I like my BAT model M 2 lug actions. They are a little heavy but they have a huge amount of primary extraction and will make light work of a stubborn case if required.

I'd rather sacrifice a little bolt throw for increased extraction reliability and don't the feel it's any disadvantage in F class.

Re: One gun or more?

No one has mentioned the good old 300WSM I had 2 loads sorted for mine, 190 gn VLD for ranges to 600 then the 210gn VLD for the longer rangers Both projectiles had the same 300 zero and the 190 had a straighter flatter trajectory out to 600 if memory serves me right. Then the 210 drifted less out t...

Re: LABRADAR - Just how good are they? - some more testing

Good too see your back on deck Peter, Could I be controversial and say they (Labradar) are a bit finicky to set up?? we used 2 together at Lower Light some weeks ago and I thought why bother as no amount of adjusting and one unit wouldn't read at all. Is this normal?? Geoff They can be a bit fiddle...

Re: Load tune vs barrel tune

OK bit of an update! I've had a chance to get back to the range and repeat the testing 1000 and at this range the velocity is definitely starting to have more effect. Loads with 25fps ES would struggle to hold 6 ring while those with around 15fps or better AND good barrel tune were around X ring or ...

Re: Thoughts on small rifle primers being used in .284 brass

Could you just offset the potential small primer ignition "problem" by using a small mag primer?

Effectively your still using a mild primer in a large case so ES may not be affected in the same way as using a mag primer in a 223 case for example.

Re: Load tune vs barrel tune

I have always previously loaded for accuracy with very little or no regard for ES. I've always done my testing at mid to long range and achieved mostly "acceptable" results while continuously looking for ways to improve. After developing several barrels to what I felt were the best they co...

Load tune vs barrel tune

What I mean by load tune vs barrel tune is how many of you are tuning for accuracy with little or no regard for ES and purely looking for accuracy and who of you are tuning your loads for low ES and maybe adjusting barrel tuner later?? I have been messing around with a couple of new barrels lately w...
