Re: Carbon cleaning methods curious after borescoping club barrels

I do the same as you, I give the barrel an abrasive clean every 200 rounds. My barrels are all left with Hoppes soaking in them until the next shoot and I have tried all the carbon cleaners which get the soft carbon out but after 200 rounds there is always some hard carbon left in the first few inch...

Re: Heavy Gun

Nice looking rig. I reckon it would go well with 120gn pills on the rabbits.

Re: promoting the nraa image

I think the group blood donation at some shooting events would be great. It is not as if we will be exerting ourselves too strenuously after a days competition and it could be a good way to get our names and pictures out there in public.

Re: 6.5 150g SMK

The other alternative would be 6.5x55 AI. Then you could wear out the barrel fireforming, but at least you start with good brass (lapua). I guess you need at least 2 barrels done at the same time or at least with the same reamer... I never want to get another 6.5x284, too much stress on that case h...

Re: 6.5 150g SMK

Frank, where you pick up the 150g pills from? Cheers Is this in a canted land (5T) barrel? Yes it's the 5R style rifling. The posts I read on the U.S forum seemed to indicate that the 5R type barrels didn’t have the same bullet blow up problem as the regular barrels. In your position you would know...

Re: 6.5 150g SMK

Frank, where you pick up the 150g pills from? Cheers I've run them thru my 6.5 Creedmoor at an honest 2700fps (23" barrel) and my barrel is a 1-6.75 twist. I've only shot them out to 430 yards but no bullet failures. Accuracy is outstanding. I know the velocity isn't really high but twisting t...

Re: 6.5 150g SMK

Just need a 300 win mag case to push them at a decent velocity. With early reports of some people having the 150gn Sierras coming apart when pushed too hard, it might be best not to go too big in case size with these new pills. I would be tempted to try them in a 6.5x284 sized case and not push the...

It is, mate! He started Hoplon a few years back.

I never knew about it but he seems to have a lot of the gear we use.
