Yes but then they out shoot you week after week, Sophie shot a 60.10 at 500 the other week in some slightly tricky conditions! Thankfully I just point out that she couldn't do it without some exceptional loading on my part [-o<

A year on and 1 becomes 2

So after a year or so of F class and mistakenly inviting my wife along, we finally have two actions up and running. Both conform to the same basic principles Barnard P actions with Krieger barrels and Rob Eager custom carbon and wood stocks. Sophie is going to be concentrating her efforts with the D...

Re: Problems with CCI 450s

Sorry, I made that super confusing, the top two are showing pin strike but failed to fire, the bottom two are as seated (I couldn't see to picture whilst typing)!

Re: Problems with CCI 450s

Insufficient striker energy and/or striker protrusion or too much head space. I think that head space is the key! With low striker energy / protrusion the hard cup of the 450 is extremely unforgiving. Until FF my Dashers I had never had a problem with a 450. Despite jamming the projectile hard (ver...

Re: Problems with CCI 450s

I thought I was as I had one not fire in the 308 then had a bunch of issues in the 6mm. Turned out that my 8 month old sucking on a 308 case had done it no good and the 6mm was just the joys of fire forming from 6br to Dasher. Bit of a relief as I have 8000 CCI450s in the safe :wink:

Re: which would you recommend

Yes 6mm is a damn good way to start F open especially out to 600. Sophie shot her 1st 60.10 at 500 the other week on only the 2nd outing with the new Dasher chambering (previously 6br) I think she may have forgiven me for the change lol.

Re: Looking at EJ-123 scale for greater reloading accuracy. Any experience?

I would save for the FX series as you move from load cells to a hybrid moving magnet technology. As I understand it, this is what allows the scales to respond accurately and quickly to very small changes in weight and what differentiates the cheap from the expensive scales irrespective of brand.

Mate of mine has the same scope and relegated it to the .22 bench gun after 2 sets of stitches, exceptional glass though!

Re: High power scopes and NQ mirage!!

I have the 8-80 in victoria and have never fired a shot at 80x. That said the guy I purchased it off (only sold as he retired from shooting) claimed he often used 80x but I have yet to find suitable conditions. I do use 55 to 60 on rare occasion but the last OPM I shot at I was down around 15 to 20....
