  1. We found that any sideways pressure on the red blade will cause this. The blade appears to be there as a secondary "safety feature" in a cheap single stage trigger that makes it feel a bit like a two-stage. It will work as a single stage without the red blade, but the design is such that I certainly wouldn't recommend it. When it works, it works OK, but with the occasional jam..................we have ours set at around 450 grams. Any lighter, and the jam rate increases exponentially. The whole trigger only costs £35, which says it all, really................... Pete
  2. Unopened box of 100 Lapua 6BR cases. £65 posted Pete

    6.5 creedmoor and RS62 temperatures

    Compared to RS52, RS60 will definitely fry your barrel. I have a 308 with a Bartlein that's only had RS52/155's at 3000fps through it, and after 1500 rounds, it still looks as good as new. The 6.5 with a Lothar and 600 hot rounds of RS60/123 Scenars is another story................not a pretty sight, but still shoots well. RS52 is a double base powder, but it's a bit more barrel-friendly than RS60, for sure. Pete

    Seating depth for .223 80gr Sierra MK?

    I jump mine .020" with 80 grain SMK's, and can get 1 MOA at 600yds on a good calm day. Pete
  5. The footprint looks a bit small.................a stiff breeze would have that over in no time. Re-Pete

    Trigger Maintenance

    Get an aerosol can of brake cleaner, remove trigger assy, wash through repeatedly until squeaky clean, allow to dry completely, then give a squirt of a dry lube such as : https://www.amazon.co.uk/44172-WD40-Professional-Lubricant-400ml/dp/B006A8JEUS allow to dry and re-assemble. Pete

    Steel Core Designs

    Well if they are a reincarnation or a subsidary of RPA, they already have the tooling and a factory. Have a look at the Gunmart review: https://www.steelcoredesigns.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/338-CYCLONE-REVIEW-LR.pdf "Tested by Walts for Walts"...............Popsbengo, I love that !!😎 Pete

    The clue is in the address, Tonbridge, Kent.............this is where RPA have a place. I had a pic rail fitted to a rifle there a few years ago. It was a bugger to find, tucked away on a small ind. estate. Some really nice kit lying around, though. Pete

    Molten Salt Annealing Rig

    How much salt did you buy? I have the same Lyman pot and I've been trying to guess how much I'd need to get a decent depth once melted. Pete

    Barnard 07 rifle/stock

    I'm not sure what you mean by fitting a collar............if it has to go between the barrel and the receiver, then the barrel will need re-chambering to get the required headspace, in which case it will need re-proofing. Pete

    Are you dropping them into water as you go? Pete

    Barnard 07 rifle/stock

    Why should it need re-proofing after removing and re-fitting the barrel? Pete

    Gunsmith

    Well I looked up the diameter of no. 6 SWG , and according to https://www.rapidtables.com/calc/wire/swg-to-mm.html it's 4.877mm, whereas the 6-48 screws that I have (which fit) are 3.38mm in diameter.................. Pete
