    Primer seating tool

    Hi i used a rcbs universal tool Which is good , now relegated to back up. But bought a k+m single hand tool with the gauge - its superior to the cheaper stuff , the precision is to a thou or less . Well worth the investment . Atb

    Lock and Load

    Exactly what i thought when i seen the topic title - lock n load concentricity gauge !
  10. I bought 3.6 some time ago now and honestly iv never even looked or considered doing an update . As it had all the calibers i had used/ use ! But i shoot a 20 practical and it doesn't have that listed . So i used the next nearest cartridge 20 tactical and it works fine . So i really wouldn't worry about updates unless you have to get the latest new kid on the block calibers that are released - which Isn't that often ? Atb Ps will probably upgrade at some point lol.

Im on the cusp of finishing a restoration tho and i cant get the 2stroke thing out of my head so i impulse bought this 1993 TZR 125R nearly two year ago and im dying to have a play . Iv changed even bearing and seal top to bottom . Needs running in / new 170cc top end ( Athena ) powdercoated wheels, frame, swingin arm , yolks .

    George Balfour (gbal on this site)

    Best wishes to gbal and family . To me gbal was short for " golden balls " because i kinda thought of him as the golden boy of the foram - if that makes sense .... as he was always helpful and had an in depth knowledge and a slightly dry sense of humor that came across in his posts , he must of been on the foram daily . Such a shame

    hornady eld match

    If someone has a 6mm / 243 eld X i can section it next to a 6mm eld M i already have ! Haven't loaded any yet so not a clue if they shoot or not . Or i could send a eld M to someone to do the same . To see the cup thickness difference if any

    95gr Sierra TMK for 6br

    Woodlander have you tried the 87g Vmax ? Worth a try
  15. No mate I don't, honestly I've never needed one . Normally I'd get the load right then zero ,then confirm drop @400 yards in inches. But without dialling. Measure the drop in inches which then should equate to the same number of clicks on a 1/4 moa scope. Then confirm the impacts at 400 dialled. Besides QL does give a ballpark figure. But one day I may get one. I would then plug in that data to strelock pro and Normandy ballistic calculator and print out a chart. Now on my .20 I limit my shots to 400 . But on my 6br I'd do the same but confirm the drops out to over 700 then make sure it matches the drop chart at every 100 yard interval. Probably sounds a bit unorthodox but it's worked good for me . On the loads I think I'll try 24.4 24.5 & 24.6 now and see where it's at . I nearly bought a battery powered small portable fan so I could blow air across the top of the moderator as heat haze was a bit fuzzy. So may help. I will try and get out this week to confirm the loads etc . ATB
