    22rf trainer - WIP

    First assembly of a project, wanted a 22rf trainer for my CF, needs a bit of fettling but feels OK: Annie MPR into a Sentinel stock, used a barrel block so action is also floating. now need to link up the Sentinel mag release to the original Annie one plus a bit of ‘filling in’ around the action. T
  2. Sy247 these are just my personal comments: would not really choose a 308 for ‘long range’ if this is your desired use for this rifle. I would consider reloading from the get go, yes start with a couple of hundred good factory rounds but reload from there onwards. 6.5 Creedmore would probably work? really ‘think’ on what you want from this rifle listen to what your chosen Smith advises (please!) brgds Terry

    1st shot in a string velocity

    Andrew concur that SD is a better indicator but I do not think a 5 shot string is a large enough sample, think you need to do something like 20 to make it ‘believable’ ie you’d have confidence in your SD value? if you look at it this way, the SD is sort of predicting what your load will do, so if you plan on say using the load for 1000 rounds is a 5 shot sample a good indicator? least that’s my take on it, someone out there’s bound to a statistician and chip in? T

    1st shot in a string velocity

    JCS ?? Can you expand on this as I’ve always viewed an SD using only say a 5 shot sample as pretty meaningless (statistically speaking), so view both as an indicator of a good load if it can be repeated Terry

    1st shot in a string velocity

    Ai if you cannot get to the bottom of it shoot all your test loads in a round robin method after a couple of foulest to settle things down- don’t use a magazine, single feed. Bowjijihn- can I assume the barrel is clean ie has some reidual lube I it ie les resistance so lower pressure =!lower velocity, if so what does discounting the first 2 or three shots donto your es as IMHO 60 FPS is abut in the high side? T
  6. Gluv, So for use with a 'fixed' bi-pod up from it is the rear equivalent of a joystick rest then? Interesting? T
  7. Saw a couple of real nice front rests on the table at March Scopes UK last week (I mean ‘real’ nice engineered items) but no idea of the brand - give them a shout? T
  8. Malxwal, Went thru' similar earlier this year, R15 ran out and had the potential to become sketchy in supply, found a few kg of N140 in the cupboard so worked with this. Now running 39g of N140 behind the Berger 130g Hybrid Tac, CCI 450 primers. Had a 'flat spot' in the OCW 39g +/- . Velocity is 2895 ou of the standard rifling 25" barrel. Very consistent. Will do some playing when opportunity arises with seating depth but results are good enough for my purposes at present i.e. it's not the gun that's misses! :) Terry

    Foam for gun cases?

    Efaom are your friends on this : https://www.efoam.co.uk/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIsq3x8eb52wIVZzbTCh1W8QujEAAYASAAEgIb4fD_BwE have the right foams and will cut to size, last time I used them got a deal on two pieces for not much more than one T

    IOR problems?

    Unfortunately this is probably a very accurate assessment of most reports or supporters of a brand on the web/ in magazines . T

    Sabatti tactical

    Whitworth and Medford rifling was similar. The Glock pistols I’d had in the past had this type of rifling. You can buy barrel blanks from Lothar in this design so do not think it is exclusive ? T
  12. Gluv the TAB carbine sling is nice if you are looking for ‘just’ a sling, the bungee section works well. if you are looking for a sling as in a ‘shooters’ sling then the TAB rifle sling has everything you need ( built in cuff, easy adjust even when sitting etc) by a bit bulky for a carbine IMHO T

    Cz replacement stock

    The Boyds varminnt is a real nice, a friend has one on a 425 and it is very much a man sized rifle. T

    OCD rant!

    Perhaps a muzzle break is only as efficient as the bullet heads passing thru’ it? 😎
