Re: 7mm SAUM Rechamber/Barrel Life

Peter , @ 3000 plus and 62-63 odd grains of 2217 i found it harder to keep it grouping tight in terms of gun handling for a whole days shooting. Then trying to string 5 days together in a Queens I found the 2209 at 2920-2940 was just a lot easier to shoot and the gun tracked better so i stuck with w...

Re: 7mm SAUM Rechamber/Barrel Life

I have seen a similar effect with 2209 vs 2217 in the SAUM. With 2209 i generally see firecracking start to appear about 1 inch past the throat/Lead , which is where the hard carbon starts to build up also hence the high heat of the 2209. Interesting is that the Lead tends to not move as much as you...

Re: 7mm SAUM Rechamber/Barrel Life

Macguru , These figures of 900-1000 rounds are with 2209 which is very STOUT in the SAUM at 2950+ hence the reduced barrel life but the trade off is they are VERY Accurate and consistent. You can however double the life with slower powders like 2217 but they can be a little tricky to keep tuned but ...

Re: 7mm SAUM Rechamber/Barrel Life

Marty , I have run a few Saum barrels out and found that with 2209 and 2940 avg I go for between 900-1000 rounds before I re chamber. I have gone to 1400 but found by then it was not worth the rechamber as the throat erosion was too great . I have done 3 re chambers in the 900-1000 round mark , set ...

Re: New Aussie Supplier of Bore Care Products

Geoff , I have had that trouble and it turned out it was the brand of Patch I was using Not the liquid.

As well as Helmar I had the same issue with KG copper remover and Boretech not soaking into the Patch so I went back to sinclair brand patches and they soak in fine..

Re: New Aussie Supplier of Bore Care Products

I have been using Helmar for the past 6 months and found them to be an excellent product. The Carbon remover is probably the best Non abrasive carbon remover I have used to date and it easily rips out the carbon in my 7mm Saums. I only leave in the Barrel for 45 mins as per instructions . The Carbon...

Re: Successful 6mm for long range

Tim , I have had both 6mm and 6.5 over the years and both can do very well at long range. Wind is always a factor and thats as you know where the 7mm shine . A good 6.5 will do very well at the longs in F class and can be very consistent and are a bit closer in terms of drift to the 7mm at long rang...

Re: Federal 210M Primers

Trevor , Federal only use yellow compound BUT what they do do is use Red and Purple dye on the anvil to show the difference between a STD and magnum primer at the factory. I have seen some batches with minimal red dye and others with lots of Red dye in the 210M. Makes no difference to performance fr...

Re: tell me about tuners for fclass

My question re this topic would be does say Derek Rodgers use one ? I ask this because unless a "big league" shooter consistently uses and wins at a high level and recommends them, then until the proper science/testing comes out I shall remain sceptical. What an incredibly scientific appr...
