Re: ACT Queens

I wish I could make the lead up. Queens only for me.

I’m planning to give my Dasher a run on the Friday and reevaluate from there. If it’s not Sydney esque conditions I’ll probably shoot all ranges with it.

Re: Varying powder charge summer/winter?

I think the magneto is accurate enough to prove that barrel temp has minimal to no effect on MV (at a level where it will not push you out of a node) compared to an increase in ambient temp (therefore powder temp) which has seen an easily measurable increase in MV of 20fps for a 14C increase. Perhap...

Re: Varying powder charge summer/winter?

I don’t know about your theory Tim, but I do have data from a chronograph session back in winter. I fired 17shots (15+2shot stage)with the magnetospeed attached, starting with fouled but cold barrel, first shot was 3015fps, last shot 3020fps. Barrel was pretty hot by the end, if temps were affecting...

Re: Varying powder charge summer/winter?

So the weather is warming up a little here so I took the chronograph out and tested on Saturday as the forecast was initially for mid to high 20’s. It only made it to 24C in the end so not a big swing in temp. The load I had settled on in winter ended up being 33.1gr of RL-15 and in ambient temps of...

Re: 6mm 1-7.5 twist rate

What cartridge?

If the bullets don’t blow up from being overspun it should still be accurate.

Question begs to be asked..... why??

Re: Kapooka march out Nov 16

Convenient yes, nice, no.
It’s a rough end of town out there.

Stay in town like at the Mercure or the Townhouse.

Re: HOW FULL IS A FULL CASE?

2209 in a 284 doesn’t reach the body/shoulder region. Last time I ran over the chronograph SD was 2.75 for 10shots??

WTB 6.5mm 7.75 or 7.5T 5R

It’s a long shot but if anyone has a blank laying around they want to sell let me know.

Must be canted lands rifling.
Prefer parallel but HV will do.

Cheers

Re: WTB bartlein 6.5mm barrel 30inch #9hv profile 1:8T

Depends what you want.

I rang for a Maddco 6mm parallel about 5 months ago, they might be able to drill it next month.

Still worth the wait though.

Re: Bag/Case for 50” Savage 12 F/TR?

http://www.joeballscanvas.com Joe does long canvas bags to suit Fclass rifles. So have you settled on shooting FT/R? The savage is alright to start out, but you would be better off finding a good F-standard rifle with a custom barrel and stock and getting into F/standard B grade. Savage action is a ...
