    Vit double based powders

    Thanks chaps for you positive replies. For other folk watching. Can any advise on the possible benefits of using a double based powder (eg Vit 540) over a single based (eg Vit140) powder. Another example is R17 which has a reputation as a barrel burner would R16 for example be a better choice as an alternative? I hope this will encourage a little more discussion. Thanks

    Vit double based powders

    Can any one advise on pros and cons of Vit 5 series powders. Do they cause excess wear on you barrel as they burn hotter. I know barrels are consumables but? Thanks for advise

    6.5 Creedmoor Cases Large or small primer pocket

    Hi chaps thanks for your comments. Laurie your knowledge on the subject as usual secound to none. I tend to agree with VarmLR there appears to be little advantage in paying the extra for SR brass. Any addition comments appreciated.
  4. Hi folks can any one advise on the performance difference in large and small primer cases with the Creedmoor. I have been advised to expect slower speeds with lapua small primer cases. Can anyone advise, If using small primers should you use standard primers or magnum primers Thank in advance

    IMR 4451 for 260rem

    Chaps I like other folk can no longer get H4350 for my 260rem can any one advise on he suitability of IMR 4451 as a substitute. As an alternative could N150 be used to good effect. Any other advice with regards to alternative powders will be welcome. Thanks

    6mmbr V 6X47 or 6mm xxxxxx

    Chaps one further point with the BR is Dies. All my dies are either Redding or Forster. Would the BR benefit from my using Wilson Dies in this case. I do not want to start a die war but merely wish to gain from the benefit of your extensive experience Badger

    6mmbr V 6X47 or 6mm xxxxxx

    Thanks chaps for your comments. As big Al pointed out I neglected my intended use which will be target work out to a max of 600m. Most of shooting will be carried out at 300 to 500. I currently have a 243 and a 260 which is my deer gun. My intention is to replace the 243 with another 6mm. 6BR has a reputation as very suitable for this type of shooting and has a reasonable life expectancy. As previously mentioned I had a BR in the past and was very pleased with its performance. I regret selling it. What I am trying to find out is peoples honest comment on the other 6mm options as other than 243 or 6ppc I have had no first hand knowledge of their performance. Badger
  14. Chaps as I have never saw a 6 X 47 but have read lots about how it is the next great thing could anyone please advise on the difference if any. I had a 6Br some time ago and always have regretted selling it. You comments would be appreciated as I am considering building a new 6mm. Badger

    Hornady ELD Bullets

    Can anyone advise if they have had a view of these new bullets. It would appear they are to be gamechangers for long range shooting. I await your comments. Badger
