Another Barnard...

#1 Postby Tim N » Mon Oct 19, 2015 8:29 am

Hi All,
Here's a pic of my latest toy.
A few years ago I was advised by a gunsmith(not Matt) that I shouldn't let Rod D talk me into buying a barnard :?
So here I am with one :lol:
I still think the back end looks like a piece of water pipe cut off in a drop saw but this stock hides that.
Gunsmith-Matt P
The stock is by Rob Eager with a lowrider front and rear.
Adjustable butt plate which needs trimming.
Cal 7mm short saum
No testing yet

Nice rifle Tim. Interesting the short SAUM has made it across the country. Hope it works for you the same as the guys have been getting from it here.

Yes he did convince me to do a 280 ai some time ago which I'm very happy with
However I'm going with the " he who had most toys at the end wins" :)

Good looking Rig Tim !!

Il be interested to see the results when you start testing in regards to velocity/powder charge etc with the smaller case. I think it will work very well..

What's that growth on the end of the barrel ? :D :D
Is it a Paroz manufacture, or another Cessnock job ?
Extreme accuracy and precision shooting at long range can be a very addictive pastime.

Tony,
You are right, the tuner is a Paroz creation.
I used to think barrel tuners were just introducing another variable(which they are) however my thinking is that if you turn up to a queens etc with you ammo loaded and find out the conditions send it out of tune you are snookered.
With a tuner you have a chance of fixing that(if you know how to use it :-k )

Great, as if it wasn't hard enough to beat you blokes already. Now you are ganging up on us with a gaggle of barnard's. (or is that a battery of Barnard's?) :?:

Anyway, great looking rifle Tim, I'm sure it will shoot as good as it looks.

Well, some test results:
Water capacity of short saum 64 gns
284 same method 67gns
Water to top of neck
50.8gns of 09 sent a 168 @ 2840f/s
51.6 = 2870 f/s
More testing to do
Higher velocities printed lower at 100 yds
It did produce a couple of 60:5 at Canberra
