Re: Annealing brass - is it worth doing?

Answer to the question is Yes ! I can feel when they need doing . After annealing the projectiles just seat smoother and they seem more accurate. I just use a map torch and a drill in a dark room . Love an amp but I get good results with my old school budget job . I did use an amp on the last time w...

Re: Cortina on breaking in barrels

I am still of the opinion with some of our own rifles , and all of the Harmonic modifies and tuning us Aussies do . That given, if we didn’t have a breath of wind over the 1000 yds , our rifles would actually do that ! But only way to ever achieve that with the conditions , from what I’ve seen . Is ...

Re: nosler 185 gn 7mm

Something else to think about is 1:8 twist especially in a faster cal , you risk the bullet blowing up and a big fat zero ! Mo , 9 to 8:5 twist is reliable and 183’ etc are reliable. I realise there are people who have the tuning skill to dial in 195’s etc . But for me , keep it simple. Just read th...

Re: nosler 185 gn 7mm

I dunno , 180 Berger’s vld or hybrids are just so reliable! They always perform ! So many Queens have been won by them and A couple of Worlds and trans Tasmans .

I don’t know about the Noselers . But I would rather have a properly stabilised bullet of a lower BC than the opposite. Mho.
