  1. Upgrade Accuracy International AT

    AX and AX AICS not the same thing
  2. which calibre do you most enjoy shooting?

    470 Nitro Express The 12" flame ....
  3. can anyone help

    the benefit of the RL17 powder is high mv on heavy bullets so you get the benefit of their high bc (if chosen carefully) without the historic norms of lower mv. albeit at the cost of some temp sensitivity. imo 168 is not heavy enough. find some modern high bc bullets 175gr - 185gr ish. Berger hybrids or Juggernaughts are one (rather expensive, but very good) option. Avoid Sierra 168gr Matchking at all costs if you are planning on running them out towards 1000.
  4. can anyone help

    Ah. Ok. I have used RL17 a lot in 308. It works best with the heavy bullets i.e. 180gr and up. For 165gr and down its not really ideal, better with the Varget, Rl15, N140 type powders. Sounds like RS50 is more in line with that group ? So I would suggest you either go to heavier bullets and get the benefits of high mv's. Or change to a slower burning powder.
  5. .22 Semi Auto Laws

    crisis, what crisis ? Somebody says something that can be construed negatively and it becomes a crisis. Social Media fever comes to us oldies....
  6. new tikka or sako

    yes but you have to. plastic mags... By the time you have added in new bottom metal, after market stock why bother starting with a Tikka ? You are not going to get the money back, better starting with something that has a price point and may hold some of the value. get the heavy barrel and 1:8 defo. why would you limit the options 75 Varmint with a 24" tube would be my suggestion
  7. AW .308 folder

    Not sure I understand that post but, there is a lot of that about, dropping something in an AICS and selling it as an AI. Legally, it's called passing off (and its not legal). Some geezer up in Lancashire (?) does it a lot on guntrader. I had a moan at them as I was fed up having to look at numerous piles of shite when I wanted to see what AI's were for sale. If they don't sort their sh_it out after a while and its still pissing me off, then next stop Trading Standards for both Guntrader and our Lancastrian friend.
  8. Life would be toooo long. but feel free
  9. Sounds like it needs a bit of degreasing. I just spray mine with any old primer and it works fine ?
  10. Sierra bullets sold out

    Oh ffs, cheer up or give us a day off. Well we wouldn't want them to be profit driven would we. No, that might make them greedy, choose to invest in a successful business, introduce more product lines to compete with Berger, increase production and produce more bullets.... They are American not English
  11. well maybe, maybe not I used to shoot a 308 can on a 223 and I could not tell the difference. Sure there was one, I just could not hear it. Having said that if I was rebarelling , I would just cut M18x1 for a can, no brake
  12. I use the AI supplied mod on the tactical brake. People in the next pit tell me it is very quiet. I also shoot Northstar and SL5, it beats them. Gets hot fast. FWIW
  13. Kahles 624 TT V's 624i

    Well the bodies are different diameters so the part numbers can't all be the same. Email Kahles....Google....
  14. Had the 75 Varmint in 223 50gr Vmax was the best deer bullet i found. Can't remember the load but knowing me it would be pretty much max with Benchmark, seated 10 thou off the lands. 0.25 moa with a better shooter than me (eh!). Used the Lee Collet dies. Amazing load. No fiddling about, just loaded up, did a pressure test and went with it. Excellent kills on Roe, rapid kills at 'normal' ranges, little unnecessary damage, does not blow through. Never tried it past 200, better things for that job probably ? Shot some 70gr HPBT as well. Better in the wind at long range, but its hard to see this as a decent load for the 223 unless its a 223 only competition. Sure it extends the envelope but to what end ?? Better off with a 243 or a fast twist 22-250 ?
  15. Lee turret press

    I view a bit of play as an advantage. It lets the case align with the die which is really the key. After many I years I eventually managed to break the casting and switched to a Lyman turret. Very nice but is the ammo any better - no, and there was some very good stuff made on the lee.
