Re: Kapooka march out Nov 16

Thanks Mike, it would have been good to catch up.
I think ACT Queens will mean anyone I'm likely to know will be away from home.
All good, the Golf View looks convenient.

I have 2 of his. 1 drops into a Barnard mount, the other is an LMB Ultra which is shorter and let's me put a parallel barrel on a FTR rifle, thanks to some wizardry from Bob Eager.

Kapooka march out Nov 16

My son has his march out on Nov 16th. Yes, it clashes with the ACT Queens, which is bad planning.
Just wondering if anyone from Wagga could recommend accommodation.

Re: Wtb 6.5mm 130 berger vld

I have 1 box of 130, I'm guessing they're VLD.
Where abouts are you.
Yours for $50 + shipping
Aren't you going to be a bit pissed if they work?

Re: Copperhead projectile approval?

Well I don't know about the rest of you, but I like buying Aussie. It took me a while but I got my all Aussie rifle (Nightforce was the closest I could get for scope though) With ADI brass still able to contain and shoot my 2209 load and Ken making bullets I'll be supporting him. The point to note i...

Re: nraa funding of overseas shooting

There is Government money available for those who are selected in overseas teams but generally you have to apply for it. If shooters (whether TR or F-Class) are going to sit back and wait for the gravy train then they can forget it. Start with contacting your State Sport and Rec department and then...

Do you use a drop tube to fill those cases?

Yes mate, a 1m long piece of carbon fiber tube has served me well for over 2 years now. It's slow pour as well, a fast pour brings it half way up the neck.

Re: HOW FULL IS A FULL CASE?

I don't know where the original 'principle' comes from. My principle is to start load development from a known safe load from a book (I use adi powder so I use there book). From there I work up loads that perform but don't show pressure signs. Palmer brass isn't mentioned in any load development lit...

Re: Don’t throw out your worn out 6.5 mm barrel!!

It's an old true flight. It's threaded for a Barnard P though so might not be enough left if it needs a full rechamber? You might get away with it if you can just reduce the thread diameter to go in your action. If you have to chop it there wont be much over 24".
