Re: Tips for those with an open mind

no delay - 5+ seconds per shot over a string adds up to a heap more wait time for that condition to come back.
personally I think its less about the ability to shoot fast and more about the impact on decision making.
Time pressure does weird things to people and the choices they make.

Re: Tips for those with an open mind

aah - I see - shoot fast like a bench rest'r...now thats what I aspired to when I took up F-class. :P It used to be shooting fast meant as soon as the target was ready...now it means its as fast as I can load and fire...definitely a skill to do that well no argument. Now if only there could be even ...

Re: Problems with CCI 450s

Yeah - I'm not sure what dimension changes slightly but enough with such a hard cup that you can get miss-fires if anything is off i.e. not seated deep enough, too much head space etc. I love 21 century gear - extremely well made. I've been through a few batches of primers and also brass and only ha...

Re: Problems with CCI 450s

the 21 century adjustable primer seater is a great tool....if a batch of primers fails to fire then incrementally seating deeper has worked for me. Surprisingly I moved a batch .008" deeper once.

Re: Twist rate to charge weight

Is the bore groove dimension exactly the same as the 9tw? I understand small changes here will have a much greater impact on pressure than twist.

Re: Twist rate to charge weight

Testing in terms of FPS has shown that going from an 9 to an 8 twist (as an example) is minor in terms of FPS change (I would have to do some digging to find the actual numbers). So what the others said - its more about what the barrel likes.

Re: To turn or not to turn

can you turn it any more precisely than what it comes as new? Do you turn brass now - if not are you happy with the precision...if not what is the likely hood that turned necks would make a difference. Personally under Fclass conditions with quality brass I haven't been able to establish the value o...

Re: To turn or not to turn

Depends on who makes it. Lapua I don't turn it. IMO if it measures consistent then you are turning it to make it thinner for some reason. If you make it thinner how much neck clearance do you have? If you are increasing neck clearance by making it thinner you might need to anneal so you don't lose b...

Re: WTB: Juenke Bullet Comparator

Something from Eric Stecker - Berger Bullets about them. We tested the Juenke checker to see if the Juenke could detect voids inside the bullet. First, we marked an empty jacket with a sharpy on the outside to keep track of the relationship between the indicator read out and the position on the jack...
