    Waterproof Trousers

    Anyone got any suggestions for good waterproof trousers? I don’t mean over trousers just a pair that can be worn for shooting, walking or working in and preferably uninsulated (I like to be overly warm) Cheers

    If a bad or inexperienced gunsmith went too deep on undercut it would definitely weaken the end of the barrel , add a big heavy moderator and you could be in for some fireworks.

    No , they did get an ambiguous report on moderators however.

    That was my understanding also. I recently has a CZ527 in 22 hornet shortened and threaded, by a smith who builds and shoots F class rifles and the subject of reproof was never even discussed. On a modern rifle which was proofed when new, can anyone describe a set of circumstances under which chopping the barrel by a couple of inches and rethreading it for a moderator can weaken the barrel to the point of failure? Cheers Bruce

    Have Jackson Rifles not already disproved the need for re-proofing on end of barrel work such as shortening -screw cutting - re-crowning. I know in our area a very well experienced gun-smith stopped sending such work to the proof-house.

    Either would work well but probably black. Cheers, Ben

  21. Good morning....can you tell me if these scales are still for sale please? A fellow member of our club is just starting up & I know he needs a set of scales. I do appreciate that this is an old ad but noted that there were no replies, so I thought I would ask the question! Thank you.... Kindest regards, Stuart

    Whilst the proof houses do come across as a mafia I still think I`d go with what they claim is law.

    Palma brass

    My best load was 46.3 grains RS52 with a 155 Scenar bullet and 2.90" AOL (usual caveats apply). From a 30" 11 twist barrel, this gave 3050 fps. I did go faster, but the groups started opening up. 47 grains of TR140 gave 2890 fps with the same bullet/OAL , so you can see there's quite a speed increase with RS52. Pete
  25. Thanks just finished night shift so off to bed. No rush. Ian

    That could be argued about for ages, but i wont bite.. best ask a professional rifle builder what they do and what their insurance allows them to do to find out what happens in the real world based on relevant good practice.
