    Tears in Case necks

    I use these also. Although i have my trimmer motorized with a motor off a sewing machine . This has a foot control so i have 2 free hands. Very fast to operate with very consistent results.

    Biathlon Rifles?

    new .223 time

    The 69gr tmk stabilizes no problem in my 1 in 9 twist blaser lrs 2. Another very good choice is the hornady 75 gr bthp. These 2 shoot very well in my rifle.

    223 Load Tests and an unwanted surprise!

    I found my best accuracy running the 69 tmks at 3100 fps using h4895 . I used 25.7 grains of it. In my lee reloading it showed its speed at 3000 fps!. Cci 400s are a very good primer for the 223 with a very hard cup design. My blaser lrs 2 has a 24 inch barrel.

    .22 Semi-auto ammo

    plus 1 on this. i have a walther gsp carbine rifle semi auto. accuracy is up there with any bolt action 22 i have ever shot. The action in tgis rifle is very tight. about 150 rounds before i have to clean it.

    Has the .17 HMR had its day?

    always thought it was a pointless caliber. Too loud for rabbits. And marginal performance on fox.

    New Tikka rimfire

    Looks like a very good rimfire. But i think ill stick with my walther gsp carbine rifle.

    Best Rimfire - straw poll

    Hw66 jagdmatch in bolt action. And Walter gsp carbine rifle in semi auto. I'm lucky to own the Walther and have owned the weihrauch. Both superb rifles.

    Powder charging vid

    I use a Very similar setup. I was having trouble a couple of years back with consistency of hand loads. The target master was doing its job admirably, but something wasn't right with my groups. I bought an electronic scale to check if the powder was being weighed consistently. I found out that there was serious inconsistencies on some of the fills. Some were have a grain heavier than others. I later found out that there was dust in the pivot point of the scale and it was throwing out the charge weights. The target master was still doing its job but must have had that little bit more resistance to deal with. I would never have got to the bottom of it, only for putting lots of rounds through a chronograph. Every so often I give my scales a very thorough clean in case it happens again.
  10. Fantastic achievement Alan on your first outing. Made all the better using a rifle you built yourself. Congratulations. Murph
  11. Plus 1 on this. My local gunshop has a bore sighter. I bought an MTC taipan and wanted it bore sighted for my 22. I asked to adjust the magnification on the scope to see if there was any error. There was a slight bit of error on it. The owner of the shop told me that almost every scope in sfp under £1000 showed from slight to horrendous!. I tried my z6i 5-30x50 on my rifle to see what it was like. There was no descernable movement in poi through the whole zoom range.

    Powder recommendations

    I'm using h335 at the moment with very good results. Tannyoky had about 60 tubs of it the last time I enquired. Plus 1 on Tannyoky. They got a big shipment of powder in last month. With blc2 you will struggle to hit 3000 fps without filling the case up.
