Re: RUN TOO FAST?

. One thing I can guarantee is that if my wife knew how much it all cost, she would never let me spend it either. Mine shoots, it sort of opens the door a little to what I can spend but also puts on a fair break as she knows what its all worth #-o Somehow she has a Dasher and a SAUM with the SEB MA...

Re: RUN TOO FAST?

I have a definite view on whether to practice with a combination which gives lots of wind drift, or one which bucks the wind very well, and that definite view is that it depends, could be either way. Different shooters minds work in different ways, and all can be right. It is like some people say y...

Re: Warracknabeal Rifle Club Prize Meeting

With the definition of a close contact being "face to face contact for more then 15 minuets", there must also be a reasonable argument for a maximum of 10 shot strings especially to limit contact between the two scorers? James With one scorer sitting 1.5m behind the shooters feet and the ...

Re: Warracknabeal Rifle Club Prize Meeting

Would love to give it a go. I have never had the opportunity to shoot 20+. 15 always seems a big step from 10 so would add some extra interest.

The Wind Book for Rifle Shooters

After 392 days on pre-order :shock: the new edition of the wind book for rifle shooters has finally been dispatched! If it proves to be anything like as good as the 1st edition (I had a loan copy) then it will be essential reading! https://www.bookdepository.com/Wind-Book-for-Rifle-Shooters-Linda-Mi...

Re: RUN TOO FAST?

The bullet at 3004 MV (Limit +44) will drift 0.492 MOA (the same as the "6" radius 0.479 + bullet radius 0.013 = 0.492) under the influence of a 1 mph wind. In the perfect scenario, it will touch the "6" ring on the water line 3.00. But, with the legit MV of 2960, you get drift ...

Re: Can case volume be inferred by its weight ?

Really? I didn't realise the drying was that quick. An unfortunate incident I had with a coffee proved that it is essential for them to be perfectly dry inside. Yes with metho and heat, sunlight, food dehydrators, etc are much slower. I found the same thanks to being sucked by an 18 month old :oops...

Re: Can case volume be inferred by its weight ?

On the matter of cleaning the inside of cases with a bronze brush, I'm sure it could be done with the right design, possibly using a hemispherical shaped brush head with a sliding shroud for inserting through the case neck. If someone could manufacture it, it would be much faster and easier than cu...

Re: Can case volume be inferred by its weight ?

With the extreme accuracy achieved with modern presses (I may have accidentally ordered a Heavy Präzipress :lol: ) and dies, has anyone ever tried compensating for case volume with seating depth or indeed are these relatively tiny variations in case volume completely negated by varying bullet dimens...

Re: Can case volume be inferred by its weight ?

I think it's important to remember that the 284 variants and the 7Saum ( and long bullets ? ) are NOT famous for low ES/SD numbers anyway, which is a detail that perhaps screws with the tests we are discussing here ? I don't have experience with the 284 but the 7SAUM one should be achieving single ...
