Re: 7mm SAUM slow node.

Brett asks a good question.The 5 r's tend to run a little quicker. Bloody energy limits spoil the show and bog the potential screamer groups of the SAUM at higher nodes. Given the energy limits imposed the slower barrels in standard form are more appropriate along with a faster twist to take the edg...

Re: stuck cases

Copper, this seems like you added to an head space issue by body sizing too far in the first instance. It is very likely the head space with your initial loading may have allowed the case to stretch and bind at the base when fired as you thought. Cases should be prevented from being knocked forward ...

Re: 30 cal nylon brush options of best brands

Agree with Ben. But only use a nylon brush as a solvent carrier. Recently had to remedial lap a guy's relatively new barrel because of ceramic carbon build up. A more persuasive use of the bronze brush could have avoided the problem.

Just want to add something a little different. I bought a "Teslong" bore scope which is great direct from the Chinese supplier using their online facility, but I observed the paperwork had my IP address on it which I had not supplied. Interesting. Changed my computer passwords.

Cheech, I spoke to a senior detective on Saturday about these issues and theft is more widespread than you think with undesirables being more sophisticated with data matching to find where you live. A few years back my wife's and my own gear were stolen by forced entry. Fortunately the culprits were...

Can't believe someone's number is published on this site without their express permission! Private email is the way to approach people, especially with all the wackos out there. Totally irresponsible and should be removed.

Re: Problems with CCI 450s

Rich4, I think in target shooting you have to turn primers over on a barrel basis. That is why I buy sufficient to last the barrel life of the best batch on my initial primer testing with a new barrel. Same with projectiles. Same with powder. The best place to buy primers is from the association sho...

Re: Tips for those with an open mind

Gman, I think you have to have a foot in each camp on this one, depending on conditions. But I can say, some barrels do not tolerate various degrees of cooling with variable time intervals in waiting things out. Tests from the machine rest at 1000 yards from a dozen different barrels I used performe...

Re: Problems with CCI 450s

How you store primers is important too if you buy in bulk. A cool dry place is required. Also keep oily fingers away. Nothing kills primers better than oil. I soak old primers in oil for safe disposal. If primers are kept stored next to other chemicals they absorb vapors easily. Who knows how some p...

Re: 6 br additional calibre

I'm with Sungazer on this one. If people want change, go to FOpen. Rather see a grading system introduced to FOpen than too many changes in TR or FS. Then then market would then decide over time just as the use .223's in TR and FS have fallen away except for beginners and old folk who are learning o...

Good luck GMan, love to see more pics of the FO guys in action and some boards. Keeps us keyboard warriors up to the mark. Good to see positions on the mound and pictures of flags that are dead or alive in different sections so new shooters can analyse the pros and cons of setup in training sessions...
