  1. Re-Pete

    General purpose target rifle.

    The GRS hybrid stock is brilliant (I have one on my 6.5x47)...........but for F/TR, I'd go for a proper single shot target action. Pete

    Getting scope level

    Can't you see if it's canted when on aim?.......I certainly can, although I do get into spirit levels when fitting the scope to the rifle. Pete

    RPA rifles

    It's a CG-RPA 2000 (a Quadlock predecessor, with Belleville washers and a 2-piece firing pin).............a cracking strong action with a "tuned" 2-stage RPA trigger that breaks around 300gms. Pete

    General purpose target rifle.

    This place has a couple of likely candidates https://gtshooting.wixsite.com/gt-shooting/rifles My first 7.62/308 target rifle was an old Mauser from here. I paid around £175 for it, shot it at Bisley for a year or two, then traded up to a Swing Mk4. Pete

    RPA rifles

    Bet it's not as bulky as my 6x47............... Pete

    Inside of brass neck to clean

    I think consistency is the name of the game...........I've heard of american shooters who use a very loose neck, load long, and let the lands seat the bullet. I plan to try that in the not too distant. It should eliminate variations in neck tension. It'll also need a bit of load dev............ Pete

    I did say "if"..............😊 Pete

    Inside of brass neck to clean

    Bit of carbon in the neck helps the bullet to slip out easily..............if I clean my cases, I lube the inside of the necks with Lee die lube. Probably a waste of time, like cleaning the cases in the first place, but it makes me feel good.........😊 Pete

    Tikka T3 trigger

    CG-Jackson, if you can find one........I have two of these on Tikka M595's, and they're brilliant https://www.6mmbr.com/cgtrigger.html Pete

    RPA rifles

    https://rpainternational.co.uk/rpa-systems-limited-enters-barrel-manufacturing-market/ Your rifle might pre-date this, however, and I'm not sure if this is up and running even now. Pete

    RPA rifles

    Based on a Quadlite action, you won't go far wrong with that.............. Pete

    Powder for .243

    As a matter of interest, One on top of Two, what's the fill ratio with your load of RS52 in 243? Pete
