  1. 1066 is correct about the ludicrous european constraints on power output but its claimed that this only reduces the tracking range (mine usually tracks out to 50 yards) rather than affecting MV measurement and detection...... makes you wonder though!
  2. Good idea....I use a length of ally tube to sight through although I do have to tape it on each time! You may have a market for yours if it fits easily.
  3. Roy....same here re positioning.....thanks for feedback.
  4. John I also have a Magnetospeed but unlike yours its just the normal mount which is a faff to setup and keep tight so Labradar is better for me. Agree they are both accurate. I have been measuring 223 with a mod fitted so maybe I will try again without the mod to see if it triggers more reliably.
  5. Roy Where do you position the muzzle?
  6. VERY happy with this until I use 223 where recording is patchy. I would be interested in other users experiences re small calibres.

    A&D scales with autotrickler/autothrower

    I don't know the kernel size of N160 but N550/ N560 kernels are circa .04 grains if that gives some sort of guide.

    A&D scales with autotrickler/autothrower

    I could not get on with the Lee thrower...it would crunch on large kernels and leak finer stuff. Forever fiddling with the tension srew just degraded the whole setup. The Lee was never meant to be motorised. The V3 thrower is a transformation.
  9. Is it general practice to use Loctite...non setting.....on rail to action screws?

    A&D scales with autotrickler/autothrower

    V3 all the way.....thrower etc is sooo much better than V2
  11. +1 re srvets post........I had a similar response initially to my 338 variation....it being described as 'the bad 338' ! I protested with club help and got my variation. Don't let them make law on the hoof!

    Same here.....little or no fouling. Its VERY easy to apply and no great additional effort. My main aim is extending barrel life in a 6mm SLR. Velocity is as required with 43.5g H4831.
  13. Join...... the club is a good 'un! Also if and when Salisbury plain comes back you can use that with FCSA.
