Re: WTB - Books

I think most authors require some filtering, due to their personal prejudices which may have started early and not been re-examined, we’re all guilty of it to some degree :oops: I believe Nathan to be ridgy didge in his field but remember he is hunting, not shooting long strings, 3 shot groups only...

Re: Moly - who still uses it??

Tell me this please : is there a solvent on the planet that will get under that "ceramic carbon layer" and make it let go so I don't need to cut it away with abrasives ?

Re: Moly - who still uses it??

I would be reckoning for the reasons u describe Alan it would/could help lots but I suspect with many other ‘normal’ barrels it won’t provide any gains and will instead introduce other potentially detrimental variables and dynamics. A barrel that for whatever reason wants to foul more than is desira...

Re: Are any Aussies using Haverkamp actions?

that is true, but the rear should not be used as such. bruce. Bruce, I have a Hall action that came without a recoil lug so I called Allan Hall in USA (a Benchrest shooter), he was adamant that the rear tang was to be used for recoil. The tang was very thick. I had a pinned recoil lug fitted becaus...

Re: Vortex Golden Eagle 15-60x52 Thoughts

A SFP scope set at its higher magnifications with very fine reticle lines is a handicap in tough conditions ! Been there done that, wouldn't touch one again. Think about it : how many of us have a gun so accurate that we will gain from the extra aiming precision we can have by using a reticle that o...

Re: Berger bullets optimal speed

Just a little more learning for ya Kianga1971 : I recrowned my FO gun the other day due to a ‘mishap’ that buggered it and it would NOT shoot when I took it to the range last nite. This was after recrowning it, and after a very anal lathe setup. It had gone from a ¼ minute gun to a ½ minute. Re crow...

Re: Berger bullets optimal speed

My reference to Unobtanium is to a damping substance that actually damps before the bullet has left the barrel ! Plenty of things that damp - but do any of them actually work the way people think they do. ? Damping means absorbing the energy present in a vibrating barrel. It can reduce the amplitud...
