    I did that and it works well BUT.... it is advisable to weld/ fill the holes created by drilling out the front plate as the noses of rounds can catch otherwise.
  3. You use the click adjustable feature to FAR more easily and accurately set the degree of shoulder setback you require to set headspacing (typically resizing the brass to be shorter by about .001" at the datum point on the shoulder than its fired measurement.) With standard dies you have to unlock the lock ring, turn the die down a fraction then relock and see if the resize operation gives the desired headspace....a real ball-ache and sooo easy to overshoot and create excessive headspace. With the Whidden you do have to do the coarse setting in the same way BUT the fine and final setting is easily crept up on by turning the ring 1 click at a time which netts about a .001" change...... mine actually produces a half thou change per click.

    Loading tray/block for .338 Lapua.

    Yep....forstner bit and a drill = custom made blocks. I added a routed fancy edge and oiled the wood....included a central tray for tools in a 100 round block with leatherette liner. Completely over the top and bling but totally functional and cost damn-all.😆

    Loading tray/block for .338 Lapua.

    Block of wood , right size drill bit and 30 minutes effort.
  6. +1 for Whidden kit especially the click adjustable FLS.

    The higher number G1 can be a marketing ploy...its a higher number so may be seen as 'better (by the uninformed) ' than the G7 value of a competitor bullet. Some may genuinely need to use the G1 in their ballistic app even though G7 is usually more relevant. The move towards custom drag models will gradually take root.
  8. Also N570 (95g) but with 250g Scenar....2954fps ex 30" barrel

    The customer service and delivery are very good. You may also want to lok at Area 419 upgrades.

    Surely this must be a CYA policy statement for insurance or similar in case of accident as I can't see how this could possibly be monitored or enforced

    Moly Coated Bullets (Why)

    Brillo I got mine from a UK supplier but its not cheap as I had to buy about .5 kilo. I can let you have some if you want to collect for trials.

    Moly Coated Bullets (Why)

    Agreed above...forgot to list that step although coating seems to work without it well enough.

    Moly Coated Bullets (Why)

    I clean bullets in washing up liquid, dry then tumble in plastic jar in a vibratory tumbler plus tiny ball bearings to impact boron onto bullet. Barrel can be coated with mop soaked in a solution of boron in isopropyl alcohol.
