  1. Rebarrel from 223 to 204

    Hi Elliot now you’ve had your 204 for a while and developed and good load for it, have you noticed any significant performance difference from your 223? In your experience is one better for foxing and field use than the other?
  2. 6mmbr light strikes

    Yes, changing primers may well help. After reducing firing pin strength in my 308 I was suffering light strikes with BR4s. Changing to another primer sorted that out completely.
  3. New dies

    +1 And I'm experimenting with honed Forster FL dies too. I'm hoping they might speed up the process without working the brass too much.
  4. Vixen on Heat

    Sorry to drag this up, but could anyone please send me Vixen on heat call for Foxpro? I have been trawling the net with no luck. Cheers, Matt.
  5. Trijicon 4x32 TA31RCO-M4 BAC Rifle Combat Optic Blurb here: https://www.trijicon.com/na_en/products/product3.php?pid=TA31RCO-M4CP Plus GDI R-COM E-Model Combat Optic quick release mount Blurb here: http://www.gdiengineering.com/store/products/r-com-e-model.html Both only used a couple of times on my 10/22 for gallery rifle, so as new. Lovely sharp, bright optics but I prefer my old scope instead. £750 collect from home or Bisley, or plus post at cost. Also for sale elsewhere.
  6. Delta Titanium

    I disagree that the Deltas and DMRs are better than Sightrons. I have just sent back a Delta Stryker which was OK but very similar optically to the DMR. I have kept my S3 LRMOA as it represents better VFM and more useful reticle. None of the above are optically anywhere near my IOR, Z6 or the NF ATACR I just sold. I had a Vortex PST, and it was easily the worst of the bunch.

    Thanks for the info.
  8. A Wildcat is born

    Very interesting indeed. I have old 260 dies and brass from previous barrels and wonder if new life could be brought by a 6.5 SLR FLS or body die. May I ask who your smith was and do you know if he has a standard SLR reamer as well as the blown taper version?
  9. Black grey laminated, boxed and in excellent used condition. SOLD
  10. No worries, I was just interested to see if my guess was correct. There was another set for sale on SD a few months back.
  11. Rebarrel from 223 to 204

    Right, we are all settled then that 204 is not significantly better than 223, which means that the quoted manufacturers stats must be incorrect. I have shot foxes out to 300 yards under the lamp with a 22/250, though that is rather longer than the usual range. Had I been using my 223 I would not have attempted shots at that distance. I was hoping that 204 might have given the extra legs, but it seems not.
  12. Rebarrel from 223 to 204

    Gbal, can those figure be relied upon? They show the 204 whups the 223 at middling speeds with 50% less drift and 25% less drop even before 204 trajectory is adjusted for a max of 1" above line of sight. The general consensus here from those who have had both is the difference is negligible in the field, but your figures show the 204 does have a significant advantage.
