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...

Re: 2019 National Teams Match WA Queens

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...

Which Barnard aftermarket trigger?

I use original triggers on my Barnard rifles and am happy with those because I am used to a heavier trigger pull which some new shooters may find harder to master. However, I was recently asked "which aftermarket trigger" is most suitable for use with a light trigger pull? I could not spea...

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

Bad_primer these slow burning burning powders like pressure to burn efficiently. There are a couple of options at either end of the spectrum and particularly if the weather is cool. Firstly if you seat the bullet deeper, you can increase the bullet compression of the powder and so increase pressure....

Re: Omark M44B action screws

David if you hold the stock between two fingers and thumb at the front screw in a vertical position and give the muzzle a tap with the other hand you will feel a hum in the holding hand. Then tap the butt to see if it gives a similar hum feel. If the feel is dull and not resonant feeling the setup i...

Re: Omark M44B action screws

David, if the recoil lug screw was not used but two new holes, one in the middle and one about an inch behind the recoil lug were we left the tang screw out. If the recoil lug screw was used, we used the tang screw. Three screws in our opinion were not needed to get best results and there was a dang...

Re: Barrel Change

Scott, stainless has a tendency to gall and those that use switch barrels regularly, wear the threads and often miss reference marks on the barrel and action even if using a torque wrench. Its a good idea, as Rich4 has said to use antisieze or something similar to avoid the issues. Many an action ha...
