Range was heavy with what I call washing machine mirage . The range read very true and honest however it was onl...

Re: 2217 vs 2213SC which is a more consistent powder

[quote="williada"] Slower powders tend to have choppy vibrations, so other optimising factors have to come into play. In reality the simple sine wave is not really the full picture in vibration analysis, but it is a simple picture you can use and goes a long way in the tuning process. Davi...

Re: 2217 vs 2213SC which is a more consistent powder

Bruce, I feel you have been a little hasty with the ignorance you argue in the unfounded correction of my comments. Having done considerable testing with “Pressure Trace”, I can assure you peak pressure does increase as the barrel is shortened, not by much but it is significant. :roll: Barrel short...

Re: 2217 vs 2213SC which is a more consistent powder

Sorry just thinking about it . The outiliers could very well be not enough pressure eg running too slow . To be getting a efficient burn . Also try like I said chamfering your flash holes. Cheers

Re: 2217 vs 2213SC which is a more consistent powder

GSells, that’s great advice, thank you. I assure you I will start putting it to use and to see what comes up. Specifically the numbers I got where from the shoot on the weekend were: ES- 69 Min- 2801 (1st shot) Max- 2870 Mean- 2838 SD- 19.3 Of the 11 shots measured, there were 3 outliers. 2869, 287...

Just want to say for the newbies and not keyboard snipers . Very important to clean out the abrasive paste with wd 40 and patches afterward. Cheers .

Re: 2217 vs 2213SC which is a more consistent powder

Sorry , I didn’t ask the Question about 168’s . While I was testing 180’s I accidentally grabbed 168’s with the 60. Gr 2213 sc and wondered why I was getting another 20 FPS and still low extreme spreads. I have never trialled them but if you could get them to work with the shorter length and less wi...

Re: 2217 vs 2213SC which is a more consistent powder

On paper 2213 should be more consistent but in my 7mm SAUM 2217 was more consistent and accurate. ES was almost as good as 2209 and it was very accurate!! Downside of 2217 was it did not like loads on the soft side, it needed to be at a decent operating pressure for all the powder to burn clean and...

Re: 2217 vs 2213SC which is a more consistent powder

Thanks for your replies everyone. In terms of the barrel I’m shooting out of its 30” with a 1:8 twist. I’m currently running the Fed Gold primers as I have a significant amount of them on hand and they seem to be pretty good. The performance of 2213SC is promising, 58.2gn Over a 15shot string on th...

Re: Prize meetings

I know this is going to shock people. But I really don’t mind ET’s with NO DELAYS :shock: . As long as they are working well and there is the support such as the Gundy Mob showed .

Re: Prize meetings

Just some good news .... this weekend, at Goondiwindi OPM , we had 105 competitors and some real quality competition . We used silver mountain ET’s and the whole show ran faultlessly. Meaning if there was a problem, there was a ET assist / RO at a moments notice . Was very professionally ran . There...
