    Alternatives to QuickLoad

    Can someone tell me if the new IMR Enduron powders are listed on Quickload ? I was going to purchase it about 6 months ago , but I sent the guy / company a message asking & never got a reply thanks al.
  3. What do you want to do with it ? As that can help with the answers you may want to receive

    6.5 Creedmoor brass

    I use re-sized 22-250 brass with Large primer and have no issues at all

    6.5mm varmint bullet choice

    In that weight area, I use the 100 gr Sierra HP and the Sierra 120 sp both very good

    Twist rate

    If you have no joy with the heavy Bullets, I would try the 53gr vmax, and get your speed up a bit.
  7. Personally, I think it's more of a placebo effect... If you are really happy with all your kit, you will be confident & confidence breeds success. The same as doubt will eat away at you. That and the fact that 90% of shooters are tarts, we all love a toy ! If it looks good, feels good & it puts a smile on your face when it's all going well - then you will sware by the tools that you have, that they are the best. but like all things, it's easier to blame a barrel or any other part, than blame yourself. Likewise it's easier to change a barrel than it is to go back to basics & learn the fundamentals of marksmanship. I would also also add that the workmanship of the gunsmith in cutting the chamber & assembling the rifle will have a lot more bearing in its accuracy than the method used to make the rifling.

    Rebarrel from 223 to 204

    Surely you would zero for MPBR ? I know I do & especially with nightvision, as I get the best out of my ' package' without having to stress over minute distance calculations most of my rifles are set up for almost flat shooting with a max arc of 1"

    Premier Optics 5-25

    Hi, hope you don't mind, I'm following your thread intently As I'm looking at scopes of similar - but not necessarily price range , some that I want more info on, like :- Delta STRYKER ED , Burris xtr2, Steiner m5xi .. As reviews by users, mainly only happen on YouTube & I suspect that most are sponsored it's like a mine field....
  11. Thank you Baldie ... i do listen to your advice & Appreciate your wealth of knowledge As I own 3 Rem 700’s I will probably end up changing them all at some point, so I thought that I could easily buy the tool & change them when I needed. Thanks al
  12. I’m feeling the love ...and I guess I won’t ask & keep my comments to a minimum on this site in future. sorry that I have a different opinion & ideas as to what is a ‘ no brainer’ .. i posted that as ‘an idea’ that I have seen .. not as ‘this is how I will do it ‘ Being from an engineer background & also a skilled locksmith, I’m more interested & intrigued with doing work myself where I can & finding solutions to problems. I guess I must be in a minority in this modern era thanks
  13. Thanks, I'm now sorted, took the plunge on a single piece spring from Brownells at £ 7.30 cheers
  14. Cheers for the info & the offer from Baldie.. In the US, a Wolf Spring direct from them is about $8 & a Tubbs is about $ 20 Ok, so one is a single Spring and the other is a duel Spring but, Are they that much different effectiveness to warrant double the cost ?
  15. Thanks, but it's a Short action ... brownalls don't have any in stock or available to back order - I will ring them on Tuesday to confirm though cheers
