Re: 7mm SAUM Rechamber/Barrel Life

I have found the same thing. Faster powders = less recoil and better tracking.

Re: 7mm SAUM Rechamber/Barrel Life

Although not a 7mm SAUM, I did an interesting comparison with 2 308 barrels at a 2000 round count. The barrels were one serial number apart, same profile, twist, finished length, crown and chamber. Both were loaded to the same velocity using the same cases and projectiles but with different powders....

Re: Carbon cleaning methods curious after borescoping club barrels

Probably the best solvent (if you can call it that) for ease of carbon removal I have found is Evinrude/Johnson engine tuner. Used regularly (best straight after a shoot) it seems pretty effective. It can be left in the bore between weekly shoots but I wet patch then dry patch prior to shooting. Bor...

Re: LabRadar Bluetooth app now available

Nice app. It does make the Labradar a lot more user friendly. I use it with a Samsung S8. No dramas.

Re: A & D FX-300I advice

Hi Lonranger Thanks for your reply. Do you have a trickler you use for yours? I am thinking of getting either the Auto trickler by Adam Mcdonald or the Dandy Omega trickler. Both will be used in conjunction with a dispensed amount below the target weight and trickle up. Nothing that flash. I just u...

Just out of curiosity, what sort of neck run out are you achieveing using Lee Collet dies?

Generally under 0.001" total indicated runout. That translates to 0.0005" actual. Rarely exceeds 0.002" T.I.R.

Re: Powder & Primers in the tropics.

Beware of those moisture absorbing tubs. Some can promote rust. Powder will be fine as it comes with the lid firmly tightened. Primers seem to last ok just in a dry cupboard in original packaging. I think cold wet climates are worse than Hervey Bay. I'd be more worried about salt air causing corros...
