  1. What about the 7/300Norma with 180grn bergers, would they hold up to the velocity generated by the cartridge? Being a light bullet, it shouldnt kick like the heavier 200+grain bullets. I would estimate 800 rounds would get you through a season of shooting.
  2. Steve how far will it range a 36x24inch plate? Does it read station pressure?
  3. Jewel trigger spares

    By any chance have you got the email address of Dennis? need to check about the Mcmillan BAF stock. cheers
  4. Mike whats accuracy like compared to magneto and does it work in all light conditions?
  5. Automated powder measure

    tuck, what you posted seems fantastic, does away with the powder measure and all in one. Will look into it tnks:))) Who sells these?
  6. Automated powder measure

    Chris, I dont want to use it to drop the powder directly on to the case but rather on to the pan of the target master trickler and voila, process is automated and precise with the click of 1 button
  7. New F open Gun 284

    I was surprised too. Its got a long COAL 3.210 so that may have something to do with having a lower pressure given bullet seated far out. When I shot it at Bisley at 500,600 900 and 1000, it was 1.50 MOA flatter than predicted tractectory. When I entered the corrections on Shooter app, it predicted my velocity at 2900ft/s. Bisley was about 5 degrees warmer than at Diggle. I have to shoot at 100yards with 25MOA on the turret and actually measure the clicks of the scope are exactly MOA. If they are, then its actually shooting faster.

    Came across this automated arm for the harrell powder measure Anyone capable of recreating this feature?
  9. New F open Gun 284

    First outing of this Fclass gun - I had a weekend trip to Bisley with my new setup: 284Win built by Mik from Dolphin Gun company on a Fox barrel block chassis, Nesika Action, bartlein barrel throated for 180bergers and 312neck at 30 inch. I didn't get the Fclass open front rest for the moment I thought I would go with a bipod as Ive always shot off one and it worked out Ok for my needs. I drove up to meet Vince for some expert advice. As I flew in to shoot, my time was limited so wanted to get a solid load right away if possible.. We had to run this on an afternoon before i headed back to bisley for the weekend. I always followed his advice and glad I did again. Brass neck turned to 0.012 and used the new FL bushing type die from wilson. We prepped 10 cases and loaded them up from 50grn to 58grn VV N165 in 1 grain increments. One shot of each to check pressure. We stopped at 58grn with 2830ft/d and 18ft/s spread. Ran 3 rounds at 300yds and we got an inch group. Loaded another 5 and shot them at same distance over a chrono. I thought leave it at that, load 50rounds up to try at 500, 600, 900 and 1000 over two days. The rifle held in the 5 and X ring at 500 and 600 so I thought it was a good start. Hadnt shot Fclass type targets in over 2 years so I was well pleased. It was pouring on the Saturday at the 600yard in century so after 15 rounds I wrapped up. There was aprinter facility on century range which I though was awesome, shoot and print off your group right away at 300. Sunday morning weather was nice and winds around 6-8mph half value on stickledown. Started at 900 on the electronic targets. Really enjoyed using these although i did not make full use of their functionality. I used Shooter app to get me on target on the 1st sighter, bang on 5 ring and likewise at the 1000yard line. 900yard target I then moved to the 1000yard line to see what it would print. Winds picked up a little but it seemed consistent with occasional switch to a headwind. Big thumbs up to Vince for his advice, no waste of time and ammo so I could enjoy travelling, loading and shooting. Also Mark ellis and Nathan from 1967 spud had my stuff sent out in a whim which made the trip possible and successful. Top service as well as the very helpful people at Bisley Range Office, thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will be back. Until next time shoot straight.
  10. Is the DCR action a clone of a rem700 action?want to see if it would fit an MDT LSS chassis
  11. Magneto speed v3

    As above wanted MagnetoSpeed V3 ballistic chronograph
  12. Fclass scope

    Wanted anyone of the following Nightforce 12-42x56 BR NPR2 Nxs 12-42x56 NPR1/2 Nightforce competition 15-55 FCR1 reticle Weaver/vortex Torque wrench Vortex cantilever mount 30mm 3" offset version.
  13. Tikka T3 action for tactical build

    Thanks all for the feedback, Ronin that specific info on the Tikka is very helpful, cheers
  14. Now that my Fclass rifle is done, I'm thinking of a tactical build on the new MDT LSS chassis w carbine butt stock and Vortex Razor 4.5-27 scope. Would you recommend a tikka T3 action for a tactical rifle build? i'm looking at a s/h action with a bartlein 24" barrel fluted for a 260rem or 6.5creedmoor on a tikka t3 action. I read that these are available also in short action but can't seem to find any. Do they require any truing like the rem700s or are they good to go? tnks Rod
  15. what i beautiful rifle, dang i missed it!
