  1. I also used the same app at Orion and was very impressed.

    PRL 2019 - What Calibre, Action/Chassis and Optic

    I think people aren’t replying through fear of loosing the advantage. I have had the cartridge debate with Ronin and MJR several times trying to find the ideal trade off between recoil and wind cheating. I shot a 6.5X47 Lapua Accuracy International AT with a Schmidt PM11 3-20X50 I was hand loading a 130gr Hornady 130gr ELD-M Over 37.5gr N150 for 2820fps and an SD of 6.2. I didn’t have time to develop the load and used the same one I had used for a previous rifle. Another competitor shot an Accuracy International AW in 6.5 creedmoor with a Schmidt scope he used factory Hornady 140gr ELD-M at 2680fps. We both scored 93. Its more about riflemanship than ballistics. One of the Irish lads was using a .308 and the calibre wasn’t what let him down. 6mm cartridge’s struggled to provide a visual feedback when looking for splash on misses. I used mine to adjust point of aim. What is clear though is knowing whatever cartridge you shoot like the back down your hand will give you the advantage. The only person I’m out there competing against is myself right now. Because when you make a stupid mistake like short stroking and having a fail to fire causing the mandatory 30 second wait until you can cycle the bolt again which causes a loss of vital points there is only one person to blame. Especially on a 140 second stage. To respond to Ronin, long action isn’t seconds it’s the risk of poor fundamentals and a short stroke.

    Howa short action Chassis

    As per the title I want a short action chassis to fit a Howa. Prefer something light weight like an MDT LSS. Cheers Scotch

    6mmbr N150

    I have just plugged in some data. To be at 2444fps at 1000 yards the MV needs to be >4500fps. Something is a miss.

    That’s really slow MV. For 30g Varget 26” barrel I’m getting 2900fps with 105 a-max

    HS Precision new gen 2 bottom metal.

    Paddy Dane had a shipment of Curtis mags in. I wasnt aware Joel Russo has stepped away. The actions appear to be doing well from what I have read. A shame the mags aren’t up to scratch.

    If you are buying this so you have a flush fit detachable magazine I would also consider a Curtis flush fit magazine that you can use in an AICS bottom metal.

    6mmbr N150

    I am going to be using N150 when my Varget stash is depleted. I much prefer N150 to the N140 when I was looking for an alternative to Varget in my other calibres .308/7-08/6.5CM and 6.5X47.
  11. Just further to add it wouldn’t be cost effective to sent a McMillan Back to the USA for a cheek piece. Sell the existing stock and buy another one.
  12. I have just had an adjustable cheek piece added to a Staffordshire Synthetic Stocks A5 style stock. They are built the same way as McMillan. I was able to use Terry’s Cross KMW logger head hard wear thanks to @terryh its was a world of difference to my rifle. It wasn’t cheap though. About £325 fitted as the stocks need re-glassing and finishing once cut.
  13. Callum Ferguson 6.5X47 Krieger barrel. This barrel has not been shot. It has a bead blast Finnish and 18X1 muzzle thread. finished at 24”. This barrel will fit both the AT and AX308. Callum’s prices are on his website, these are a premium product that command a high price and are £1050 new I am offering this one for sale at £750 I have new Brass available at a very good price to whoever buys this barrel
