    Advice needed. Chamber issues

    From my experience the new brass will eject easy as its not fire formed to your chamber and expanded causing the pits and indents which act like barbs when you try to pull back the bolt to eject the empty case, try and get a gunsmith to have a look inside the chamber and also check the bolt extractor.

    Advice needed. Chamber issues

    Myself and two mates had this problem with Remington 700 rifles ,when you get the empty case out of the gun does it have small indents and pitting marks on it if so then it could be time to get it rebarelled or a new gun, as the problem will only get worse. It's so frustrating to use once it starts I moved on and got a Tikka best move I've done, my friend got his drilled out like in pics but it came back again then he got it rebarelled with a border barrel now it's great.

    Gun powder news ?

    Can anyone shed any news on this topic please, I was at the shooting range today and heard a few people saying that Vihtavouri powders are being stopped from being supplied into the UK as it was something to do with what the powder contains, I hope they are wrong as ive recently been getting some great loads with this powder. If they are what or how much powder are you allowed to keep at home for example 1 kg tubs.

    George Balfour (gbal on this site)

    Very sad news my sympathy goes out to all that will be effected by this , I've never had the pleasure of meeting the man but was always reading his post on this site and to me he was like the Shooters Bible and more.

    Problem with reloading press

    Ok thanks for that I will give it a go.
  8. My reloading press has suddenly started to go very stiff and the handle will hardly move up or down I can almost lift myself off the ground to try and make it move, I can't see how or what's causing the problem any ideas it's a Rcbs rockchucker press. When not in use it's always covered up to help keep it clean.
  9. Looks like a female blackbird ,but closer inspection could be a juvenile blackbird looking at the yellow skin at the rear of the beak.
  10. wow that is stunning ,what length barrel is that.

    cooper arms

    They sound good rifles i've been looking at the various types they do in 6mbr, as i'm searching for which companies make factory rifles in this caliber,not keen on the savage for what i want it for.
  12. That's great thank's for the info, I've now placed a order for some mounts.
  13. I've got a CZ 452 American with a 16"sporter barrel and i'm about to change the scope to a 30mm tube with side parralex ,the scope is a Bushnell Elite 6500 2.5-16x50. How do i measure the scope rails or what mounts would anyone recommend please.
