Re: Trigger questions

I have used jewell triggers on a m70 win and Dakota 76 actioned hunting rifles for over 20 yrs, as well as an fclass rifle. all I have ever done is give them a yearly squirt with shellite. never missed a beat. those first 2 have been in all sorts of conditions and not often loved. interestingly they...

Re: BJD-HBC 155g Projectiles

Not very happy with mine weights go as far as 156.9. :oops: herein lies a common problem with Australian industry. they often fail to go the full mile. just that bit further and we would have a lot of world class products here. with such things as bullets, near enough is not always good enough. bru...

Re: Hornady A tip Bullets

trav, I remember the silvertip. if it were a soft point it would have had a huge amount of lead exposed. but this lead was covered in tin. this had the effect of giving a bit of initial penetration followed by almost blowup. I used them in100 gn for 25/06 and 130 gn 270. I would rate those bullets i...

Re: New Sporter/Hunter Class...is your club promoting it?

bad primer, many of us have held the dream of feeding other discipline shooters into fclass and also hopefully t.r. the hunter thing has been tried by many, some with more success than others. many of us have tried pilching benchrest shooters and silhouette shooters as well. open days have been trie...

Re: New Sporter/Hunter Class...is your club promoting it?

I suspect some here misunderstood my previous post here. the concept of this subject is undoubtedly a good one. the point I tried to make is this. the hunting world is quite a different one than the long range target one. this world exists, and people within it equip themselves for it according to w...

Re: New Sporter/Hunter Class...is your club promoting it?

the rules doom this new discipline to fail in its aim. the intent is to attract hunters, yet no attempt has been made to understand what hunters use. mention has been made here of limiting scope power to 25x, yet a true hunting rifle will rarely have a scope that goes up to 10x. hunting scopes are a...

Re: Hornady A tip Bullets

willow,
19 shots is not a statistically valid amount to be meaningful if divided up into different seating depths.
frank must have lucked on a load to make the statement he did.

Re: Hornady A tip Bullets

yes gyro, and it would appear keith might be in the same boat. we are all in the same leaky boat, but the older ones can often see the leak. old age does have a tendancy to let you learn from the past. although I do wonder if a certain ex would be politician in australia has learned a huge amount ab...

Re: Hornady A tip Bullets

could it be that the Hornady marketing team learned some on how to charge extra with the heat shield tip, and carried it to a even greater heights with the aluminium a tip :?: :idea: :shock: . strange that the aluminium tip in the old amax was dropped because plastic ones were better, according to m...

Re: Hornady A tip Bullets

wal,
I still have some original amax 7mm 162 gn with aluminium tips.
they are longer than 180 gn bergers, and I suspect might have had some stability problems in the 1:9.5 twists commonly available in the day.
what goes round comes round.

anzac day

while the day is important to Australians, it is interesting to ponder it from the Turkish point of view. while some aussies think that we have the right to have a service in the dardanelles,the fact that they allow us to have a ceremony on their soil suggest great generosity. australians came uninv...
