  2. As said give Dave a shout, the one shown on his website is my photo of the first trial version fitted to my own Hornady, works very well indeed. Also as I mentioned earlier try adjusting the cut-in point for the final slow trickle, it helps with over-throws of ball powders etc.. After setting your charge weight press and hold the "MODE" button, it'll start showing an increasing figure in 0.2gr steps, for stuff like Ramshot I set it to 0.4 or 0.6gr.

    interesting little problem

    I'd agree with Andrew, slight roll over crimp, especially if shooting heavy loads from the Henry's tubular magazine.

    FCSA Update

    Details announced today, At the bottom of this HO page: "it prohibits high energy and rapid firing rifles and a device known as a “bump stock” which increases the rate of fire of rifles and provides for compensation of owners." https://www.gov.uk/government/news/government-introduces-new-offensive-weapons-bill-to-tackle-serious-violence And this : Prohibition of certain firearms: Legislative measures will amend section 5 of the Firearms Act 1968 to include "any rifle from which a shot, bullet or other missile, with kinetic energy of more than 13,600 joules at the muzzle of the weapon, can be discharged;" and "any rifle with a chamber from which empty cartridge cases are extracted using- (i) energy from propellant gas, or (ii) energy imparted to a spring or other energy storage device by propellant gas, other than a weapon which is chambered for .22 rim-fire cartridges;" The purpose of firearms legislation is to reduce the risk that firearms can be used in criminal activity. Those working within law enforcement have raised concern that the weapons, to be inserted under section 5, have the potential to cause significant damage if they were to get into the hands of terrorists, criminals or an individual seeking to commit a major shooting atrocity. Following the public consultation, concern was raised on the potential impact that banning rapid firing rifles such as the VZ58 Manually Actuated Release System (MARS) rifle could have on disabled shooters. Respondents outlined that some disabled shooters rely of this weapon to participate in the activity of shooting and that the banning of this particular firearm could have some impact on their ability to do so. However, no evidence was produced on how or why they would adversely effect disabled shooters, for example, that these are the only types of weapons they can use, nor what forms of disability would rely on this weapon. Therefore we do not anticipate any differential impact from this proposal. https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/717685/Policy_Equality_Statement.pdf

    Tumbler media

    Walnut shell sand blasting media, on eBay for about £15/5Kg I think the stuff I got was 16/36, runs like sand and doesn't stick in primer flash holes https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/5KG-Walnut-Shell-Blasting-Media-for-Blast-Cabinet-Tumbler-Polisher-Grit-16-36/401116353315?hash=item5d6465d323:g:13AAAOSwGzhaFCJN
  7. No issues with mine, I particularly like the ability to be able to customise the slow trickle speed (not just using the lo -med-hi options) and be able to alter the point it cuts in at in .2gr decrements by the simple hold of a button. If you know anyone going over to the US Amazon.com and Walmart have them for $169

    Small vs Large primer test: Rifleshooter.com

    I use Starline 6.5 Creedmoor SRP brass, using Ramshot Hunter as well as Viht N140 & N150 all my velocities were well below (50-80fps) the same loads in LRP cases. Of course the Murom KVB-223M primers will also be contributing to it, as previously discussed they give a lower fps reading compared to the same loads using Federal 205's.

    Recommend a: Digital Powder Dispenser

    I did the same "Guinea Pig" trial for the Hornady L'n'L version a few years ago, it certainly improves things. Have to say I'm very happy with the Hornady, adjustable slow trickle rate and cut-in point via a couple of button presses, get the odd +.2gr with ball powders but setting the slow trickle cut-in point back a further .2gr means it's quite a rare occurrence. When I was testing the "Thingy" I did a sample of 25 charges, all were withing -0.0 to +0.1gr which is more than good enough for my shooting, I introduce a much larger set of variables to my shooting than the powder dispenser does!.

    Very sad news indeed, please pass on our condolences to George's family.
  11. I have one of these, with the standard legs the max height is 7-3/4" to the rail fitting, I also have a set of longer legs that give about another 2" of height. Mine also has the cant fitting which is on the newer versions as standard now.

    Additional Data for Lovex Powders

    Thanks Laurie, an excellent find Just took a look at S062/Precision data for the 6.5 Creedmoor, with a 140gr it says 34 - 37gr with 37gr giving 2611fps. This ties up very nicely with the suggested load data you gave me last year, I ended up using 36gr and got 2535fps from my Ruger RPR.
