  1. Just testing the water here, but I've recently replaced the H-S precision stock & 4 round detachable mag on my Savage, mod 12 LRP short action rifle, with a chassis system. I was just wondering if there is any market for the H-S stock as its far too good to chuck out? I believe its model no. is PST114, with an Ali full length bedding block and is made from fiberglass & Kevlar, Uncle Mikes recoil pad & sling swivel studs. Its channeled for a heavy tactical / varmint barrel and is the 4.4'' action bolt spacing with center feed. these are sold in the U.S. for around $495 Any help would be appreciated Cheers.
  2. Cheers Ronin, thats good news as, like I said, its too nice a stock to bin

    .284 win with 180gr ELD M

    Hello Sean. I use 55.5 grains of N165 under a Sierra 183 grn MK (# 1983) and gets it to about 2,800 fps with a 34 inch 1:8 Bartlien courtesy of Mick Maksimovitch @ Dolphin. seated "just" off the lands. A good, accurate round.
  4. I hope you mean "1,000 yards"?☺️
  5. Cheers for that Varm, I'll have a go with that and work it from there. I wasn't trying to get high velocities in the first place, I was only working from multiple articles I'd read to give me a ballpark figure to start off, and while "Quickload" is helpful, I've learned from experience not to trust their predictions on loads too faithfully, as they're quite often way off the mark. A morning down on Short Siberia will be needed me thinks!
  6. Thanks for the input fella's, much appreciated. Everything was as it should be re; the rifle, scope etc. It's funny though, as a few days before I had just finished running the barrel in with its original H-S Precision stock and I was using cheapo S&B 140 grain FMJ's, VV N150 loaded low at around 38 grains, and it was shooting o.k. not brilliant, but I was still running the barrel in as mentioned, and so far has only had 60 rounds through it. The brass I was using was once fired Hornady with large primers (using CCI BR primers). As for load development, this was to be a starting point for me. I made up this small batch to see how they would go and take it from there. I agree that the velocities were a tad high (highest recorded was 2829 fps) and should be looking at 2750 or thereabouts, so that'll be easy to take care of. Cheers
  7. Well, I had an interesting morning yesterday at Bisley testing out some homeloads at 300 yds. Loading 44.3 grains of RS62 behind some Nosler 140 RDF's. COAL of 2.815'' (giving a .009 thou jump to lands). The rifle was chucking them all over the bloody board. I was getting velocities from 2791 fps, up to 2829 fps and everywhere in between ( a little too fast I think)! but I've never shot like that before. I know it wasn't me as the other two rifles I took were consistent V & 5 shooters to 300, 900 & 1k all day long, and in excellent conditions too. But here's the rub. Its a new rifle, Savage mod 12 LRP, which is supposed to be a pretty good factory rifle. Mated to a new MDT chassis and very decent scope and is a peach to shoot, so I'm a little perplexed and don't know what to look at first, but suspect it may be down to the ammo?? These bullets have a wide array of opinions from really good to not that great and powder is good for this caliber (6.5 Creed). Any thoughts anyone?
  8. I'd go the .308 win - 6.5 Creedmoor route.
  9. Ok Pete, I'll have it. Could you pm me regarding payment etc.
  10. Hello Pete. If its the "Accu Shot" one, I'll have it. please PM me Cheers
  11. Hello Varm I've been reading your results with interest as I'm trying load development with a new 6.5 CM using the same powder in a 26 '' barrel. what COAL or jump were you using for the scenars? I understand that this round is fond of a bit of jump, say 30 - 40 thou, is that the ballpark area you're in? I'm not going the Scenar route (no pun intended) but thought I'd try the Nosler 140 RDF's in my Savage 12 LRP to see how they perform, but even with a 30 thou jump, this puts them under a 2.800'' COAL (2.796'' actual) while touching the lands obviously makes them 2.826 COAL, so I guess I've possibly got a short throat?

    Funeral of George Balfour

    I'd never met the man, but had crossed paths on the forums a couple of times. So sorry to hear this news. God bless you George.

    Ooh, thats better. I can take off my welding goggles now☺️
  14. Damn it! I've just bought one, then along comes a cheaper one - typical! Anyone looking for a very good scope for not a lot of money should buy this, I certainly would have. Good luck with the sale mate.
  15. Here's one for you to ponder. Has anyone tried to use or build a precision long range target or tactical rifle based around the .270 round? I only seem to have heard of it as a great deer rifle etc, but with the right bullets, match barrel and all is it something that would work? any thoughts or experience would be useful All the best
  16. Hello all. Does anyone know if there is such a thing as an M-Lok accessory rail which has a Anschutz / UIT type rail in it - to take a TRAKKER bipod for example?
  17. Thanks @nd, sounds like an idea. I was thinking along similar lines but wondered if there was such a thing already made, but I'll do that if all else fails. Cheers. E

    Delta Stryker

    Got mine yesterday and looks really good - very well made. I've not had a chance to use it as yet, but I'm certainly looking forward to it. The 1/8th MOA reticle with illume dot is simplicity itself, so it should be very good for its intended use (long range targets with a 6.5 CM)

    Delta titanium Stryker HD 5-50x56

    Just got mine yesterday and I'm very happy with it! I haven't used it yet, but I'm really looking forward to it. It seems VERY well made and the 1/8th MOA reticle is pure simplicity. Just have to see if it compliments my 6.5CM

    Keep plugging away mate, but be aware. Once in a blue moon a scope will have a slightly canted reticle as its been set in the scope wrongly ( though I can't believe S&B would have that!!). I recently had to send a Vortex Golden Eagle back to get it exchanged as the reticle was totally pi**ed inside the tube. I thought it was me at first, but the boys at Fultons confirmed it. When everything was perfectly squared, the reticle was out by about 10 degrees. The good news was I got a new one and its super duper! All the best

    Forster "National Match" f/l dies.

    If you lived closer I'd let you borrow mine when it arrives
  22. I'm looking at getting a new full length sizer die in .308 Win and have seen the Forster .308 "National Match" F/L sizer die. Can anyone tell me the difference between that and the normal bench rest f/l sizer as I've not really seen these before. In case it makes any difference, I intend to use it for my Paramount Target rifle

    Forster "National Match" f/l dies.

    Thanks a lot for that TreeWorks. It sounds as though its the right die for my rifle then.

    Redding decapping die query.

    Yeah, you're right there mate. I still can't quite believe what happened there though. Still, its an even bigger excuse for me to get rid of my little CZ rimfire. Oh, and thanks for not taking the P***

    Redding decapping die query.

    Hello all. I'm in a bit of a quandary about using a Redding Decapping Die (small) # 69100. Please go easy on me if this is a really stoopid question and I've missed something obvious, but I've been using this bit of kit for quite a while now on .308 win cases with no problem. Then last night, for the first time, I tried to decap some 6.5 Creedmoor brass, only to find that only the pin itself gets past the case mouth, as the part that holds the pin in place at the end of the rod (pin holder?) has a wider diameter than the case mouth! Is this right? I thought this die was able to decap a wide range of cases and I'm not exactly trying to stuff a 50 BMG up it. WHAT EXACTLY AM I MISSING HERE.
