  1. A shame ballistics by the inch haven't got to the .17 Hornet yet! I'm also interested, having picked up a CZ 527 varmint recently, which is 24" out of the box and trimming some weight is tempting. As the optimal barrel length for HMR velocity is 19" I can't see it being less than 20"? It would be interesting to see optimal burn characteristics for common powders. If any kind soul happens to have Quick Load handy, I would be very interested to see the difference between N110 and N120 relative to 20/22/24" barrel lengths, I have a load of 17gn VMAX heads to play with and musing which powder to go for, Viht is always available my way. Edit: came across some 24" data velocity data here https://forum.nosler.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=25829 be great to see some different barrel lengths for 17gn.

    Biathlon Rifles?

    Could the Fortner action or a similar ball bearing lockup action work in centre fire? To have super slick cycling on a 223 for example? The video quality isn't great in this but you get the idea.

    January CSR match report and results

    It would be really interesting to see the rifles and calibres the competitors were using in the results.
  4. David who does them for us is working on some matching bottom metal in aluminium, early 2018 hopefully. The mags are designed to work with existing factory magwells on the Tikka T3, T3x and Lithgow LA102. Most aftermarket Tikka bottom metal is AICS double stack format which requires stock inletting, though I believe Atlasworxs do a native Tikka magwell replacement for folks who just want to swap out the polymer one for metal. I can't guarantee the mags will fit their bottom metal however, as I haven't tried one. Fine if they match factory dimensions but if tighter that might require modification.
  5. All prices include delivery. They are more expensive than the previous versions mainly due to Post Brexit exchange rates, as with all imported shooting gear. Also, the black hard anodised finish is more expensive to produce than natural grey, but based on customer surveys black was the clear winner. Considering these are milled from two pieces of solid aluminium and should outlast most owners, it's still significantly cheaper than bottom metal + inletting + AICS magazines if you want a dependable 10 round magazine.
  6. The new Tikka T3, T3x and Lithgow LA102 fit aluminium magazines are now available! The delay was a worthwhile one, a number of revisions to allow some types to fit the new Lithgow Crossover LA102 as well as the T3 and T3x. All milled from 6061-T6 aluminium and hard anodized in black they combine refined looks with extreme durability. https://riflemags.co.uk/brands/Waters-Rifleman.html We've been working closely with David who makes them to extend the range of calibres, there are now 4 calibre options in 6 and 10 round versions for each: .223 case family .308 case family 6.5x55 and x57 tapered cases .30-06 case family (handles nearly 20 calibres - detailed listings on the product) Plus, we have an excellent universal calibre single round loading block. Quick note: a 6mm BR, BR family & .22-250 10 round magazine is due in early 2018. Available here: https://riflemags.co.uk/brands/Waters-Rifleman.html
  7. A quick update: all the magazines parts are now with us, we're now busy assembling the eight different versions. They look lush! It'll be a few days until they are all complete and packaged, photos to follow soon.
  8. They are finally on the way! Following some delays with the followers, the mags themselves were all done a while back, we're expecting them to be with us next week all being well. Once here we'll be assembling them, so once I have the first complete I'll share some photos. Should all be completed, packaged and onsale before the end of the month.
  9. Update on the T3 mags, we were expecting them early July but the eta on their arrival has been put back around 4 weeks due to a delay on the follower run which are a new molded type using a slippy black polymer instead of the white acetyl on earlier versions. The magazine bodies are all cut and finished, springs are done, just waiting on the followers now. As soon as they arrive I'll post some pics.
  10. A quick update on the new batch of milled T3 Aluminium magazines. 6.5x55 types are done .30-06 types are done .308 awaiting finishing .223 being cut The production is slightly behind schedule, as we've squeezed in some single shot loaders to the run, so we are expecting these in late June now all being well. I'll update again when they arrive and have some tasty pictures to share.
  11. The .30-06 size 6 rounders will also take 300wsm. I'll be updating here once they are available but please drop me a line if you'd like an email alert https://riflemags.co.uk/contact
  12. If you could drop me a line with your email I'll make sure you get an alert once they go on sale. https://riflemags.co.uk/contact
  13. Expected early May now, slight delay as we've squeezed a new polymer single road loading block for load dev into the production run. They're being made now. The test run versions I've seen so far are lush. The new black hard anodised finish is something special.
