Re: Seb PodPad

Seems a no-brainer to me that a plate/board with some carpet or other uniform fabric on top will be more consistent than a Podpad ! Especially for free recoil as u say Chris. Go with a steel plate I reckon to gain a higher inertia value than a board gives. Why ? Because ya DON'T want the board or pl...

Re: Seb PodPad

Others may chip in, but IMO if you like me dont hold the rifle the pod pad will likely give elevation shots. I have tried a few times and as the top of the pad is not flat and a small groove is made if the feet are slightly on the rise of the groove then when shot is fired the gun sits down into th...

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

well gene beggs might be very poor and have no work ethic. looks like he can't afford a stock at all. with his big tuner on the end, and the plate an the barrel to rest on the bag as another tuner he is a real cop out artist. keep safe, bruce. So did Beggs apply just as many resources and effort as...

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

tony boyers loads and barrels that resist wind deflection? those point blank guys have certain advantages over long range shooters in terms of sheer accuracy. these are short bullets and slow twists. their bullets are so short, and twists so slow, they are running much lower stability than we requi...

Re: Reloading Equipment

The non micrometer Wilson bullet seating die is all I use and can accurately keep up with the seating depth changes just by measuring with the vernier the total die head length i.e. the top section with the protruding adjustable stalk. Remember to run a note book that allows you to write down any di...

I agree it's a hugely interesting subject. And very complicated.

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

Yes very interesting.

Ya know the guy who I would really take notice of re the theoretical side of this tuner debate would be Bryan Litz.

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

Just the mere fact that Tony Boyer didn't use one might tell us something don't u think ?

As I said, many very savvy shooters have decided not to go with them. Yet.

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

Nobody surely thinks they're new ? There are many very savvy shooters, from both sides ; the pro-tuner shooters or the waiting-on-more-evidence group who take a keen interest in this topic. It could truly be possible that in todays world with the hi quality of the various rifle components, plus the ...

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

I'm done here Jase and haven't answered your initial topic question ( apologies for the waffle ) but would suggest going to the source for the tuner. Surely the tuner makers have done plenty of work before putting thier tuner into the market plus they would be getting all the feedback from the shoot...

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

assuming we are talking same lot berger bullets or customs same lot (gotta set the context so the rules apply) :) IMO bullet batching is a very fine tune step (wouldn't fit your use case assuming the above context is met) Weighing is simply to catch an outlier..arguably risk mitigation...this could...

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

Sungazer im pharqued if i know what page im on !!! I know damn well my gun is lacking in precision. I might have won a shoot the other day with it at Trentham but only because it blew some crazy winds and i never had a train wreck. If the winds werent so severe i'd bet Lewis R would have creamed us...

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

I am probably on the same page as you Gyro. Coming from an electronic background and test and measurement equipment I have seen and used devices to both tune electrical Harmonics and remove them with quite a few different techniques. A lot of what I have seen published to date has not used what I w...

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

If I was doing the tests I would do them for all the states you mentioned " Personally I question the validity of needing to know the inherent frequency of a barrel that isn't in an action, that isn't in a stock that isn't being gripped tightly or not..." I would also do so very high spee...
