    X i get the impression your fighting a loosing battle with tac and that bullet weight , ok , try different seating depth etc . But dont hold your breath . I honestly think this powder is suited to lighter bullets . I spent a bit getting 3 tubs of the stuff from kranks delivered , but in my 223 ackley 8 twist . No matter what i tried it just wasn't acceptable accuracy wise and the pressure signs i was getting in the stiffer loads was unpredictable and dangerous so dropped it and went back to h4895 which was worked up to load and consistent in comparison . Its very frustrating trying these things and not getting desired results . I would agree on the n140 or a similar rs powder although iv never used rs yet . Once iv ran out of 4895 and varget ill switch . If your getting .4 with 4895 then "just" a case of finding a replacement powder . Do you have access to any other powders ?? Before you go buying like 3 different tubs ?
  7. Good choice sir , hope it fulfils your needs ...

    6br 108g eld-m

    Hi guys was wondering if anyone has tried these in 6mm yet compared to a similar load (105 Amax etc) and how was it accuracy wise and was it fussy to tune ? I know everyone will probably have different results but just would like an idea . I still on 105s but will soon try them myself and see . Thanks for any info . atb...

    Firearms Interview on Tuesday

    If the garden is flat a 22LR wouldn't possibly be granted . They may even state that you must shoot only from a high seat to help avoid richohet , how big is garden ? Football field size ? 22LR is quite richohet prone . Hmr abit less so but will still twang off the ground and be dangerous

    Firearms Interview on Tuesday

    I remember being asked - perhaps you want to kill somebody ? I answered with , i could kill with a car or knife if i really wanted to . I wouldn't need a gun . And i assured him i don't want or would kill anyone . Asked , whats your intended quarry ? Crows mainly , with which he said thats fine on the ground but in the air ? I assured him i would only shoot quarry safety with a safe bacsktop or if it were unsafe - id leave the shot for another day when it was safe . Going for 22LR is wise / iv heard of people putting in for like 6 plus calibers on first grant / application - bit silly .
  14. Yes noticed it , the tub on the right to me could be H335 ?

    Imperial dry neck lube

    Yup same as - imperial , it lasts years and very effective , be careful opening the tub of puff dust ! Hold it flat on a table etc then carefully open lid . Or its akin to talkum powder everywhere ...
