    Moly Coated Bullets (Why)

    Been there, done that many years ago, used moly bullets, coated the barrel as well, no difference noted in performance so have used out of the box bullets for the past 12 years or so. Don't waste your time unless your rattling hundreds of bullets down range in one day. As Vince says, just another variable and something else to worry about. Keep it simple stupid!

    With balls that big, how is he even able to walk?!

    He came into the Footwear Dept where I work but I had to measure his feet blindfold and sign a confidentiality clause so I would tell the world of his footwear brand of choice. He gave me useful advice on how to maim customers at a single blow with a little finger (always good to know in Newcastle upon Tyne). Now I am not one to crow but he gave me a manhug with his big powerful arms as his omnipotent eyes pierced into mine and I felt all whoozy. PS. I am not gay but if he comes into my shop again I will ask him out. LOL. I am sure that my ladyfriend won't mind!

    Tried CSR wearing camo, fixed bayonet and bipod Bradders, but a bit of a git to hump around. Will stick with benchrest I think. Good proper shooting (unlike me). ATB

    Surge protection for electronic scales

    Bet that cost a few shillings? A little overkill for 32 grains of N150!

    Surge protection for electronic scales

    Didn't know that nicklock so thanks. I am thinking that what I thought was a problem with fluctuating power supply was most likely caused by air temp fluctuations, drafts etc. Thanks to all that replied. Good shooting, Les

    Surge protection for electronic scales

    Thanks for that info. It is not a serious problem since I purchased the A&D scale but sometimes the zero 'wanders' and I had just made a presumption that it was some kind of interference from the mains supply or an external kind. Being a layman I just wondered if somekind of plug in device would improve things. I do wipe down the scale to reduce static etc. I do not take my mobile phone into the room and I do let the scale warm up for sometime before using it. I can live with it but I was after a quick solution without resorting to getting an expert in. Cheers

    Surge protection for electronic scales

    Morning Gents, I use electronic scales and every now and then the scales are affected by voltage surge. It is not serious but I was wondering if anyone can recommend a particular type of line protection device (brand, type, number etc) to reduce any fluctuation. Cheers, Les

    Looking for: Minimum neck surface to hold bullet

    As long as your careful in chambering the round and have enough neck tension to hold the bullet in place and not fall out then give it a go. I would not put your rounds in a magazine in case the bullet is knocked out of concentricity.

    Looking for: Minimum neck surface to hold bullet

    I was told many years ago that a bullet calibre length was recommended. If however you wish to keep the bullet your currently using you could have more neck retention to hold the bullet in place! Or change bullet weight to possibly have a larger bearing surface thus enabling more of the bullet to go in the neck.

    Where is everybody?

    Lol matey. As for Les Junior, I am pleased he is not on here because he is a ginger t*sser and never did like him! If he dies before me I am going to use his ashes when it is icy outside on my path so I don't slip. See you at our forthcoming 'man gathering' wherever that might be. Keswick? Les Senior
