    Opinions on Sightron scopes?

    3 here, an 8-32x56 and 2 of the 10-50x60 No complaints at all, only reticles I wouldn't have are the fine crosshair and the target dot, I prefer MOA2 or the newer MOA-H reticles. https://sightronusa.com/reticles/

    Small primer 6.5cm vs large

    At the moment I'm only pushing the Nosler 140's with 36gr of N150, I did a ladder test from 35.0 to up to 43gr with no obvious signs of pressure, best nodes were at 35.6 to 36.4 and 38.0 to 38.4. 36gr will do what I need it to, as I've posted elsewhere my days of consistently shooting sub-moa groups with anything are long gone due to disabilities. Even sat with an MTM High-Low shooting table I can just about manage 1moa! at 100m. No problem dropping Sarts falling targets at 800-900m with that load though I'll stick with the Murom KVB-223M primers as I still have about 9,000 of them to get through!!.
  3. Sold to the nice man above, thank you
  4. Almost forgot, there's a set of bases with them, marked A5 & A12,
  5. I'd say 1", just tried them on a Simmons 1.5-5x20 WTC and they're a perfect fit with about a 2mm gap between the rings either side.
  6. One pair of as new Parker Hale RAHS.3 Scope Rings. (May have a second set but still looking) Original, sought after and not that easily found these days Parker Hale RAHS 3 scope rings with studs. These will also fit original bases as used on Lee Enfield Enforcer / SMLE No1 MK111 and No4 MK1 service rifles etc. and were the original mounts supplied and used on these rifles when scopes were fitted. £60 inc. post. (I have well used pairs listed at £99 and above!)

    Yes, not a lot to be honest. The Murom magnums produce a slightly lower speed than standard Federal or Magtech. There's another thread on here about it where Laurie explains that the Muroms are not really "magnum" in power but do have thicker cups to withstand the pressure better. Laurie also has an excellent series of articles in Target Shooter, this is the one on small rifle primers, http://www.targetshooter.co.uk/?p=2662

    Small primer 6.5cm vs large

    I've been using Starline SRP for about 8-9 months now, the one's I shot on Sunday and Monday are on their 6th and 7th firings with 1 anneal at 5 firings. No difference in accuracy to first firing, biggest limitation in the equation is me not being physically able to hold anything steady enough to better than 1MOA on a good day!. Current loads are 42gr N140 with Lapua 100gr Scenar or 38gr of N150 with Nosler 140gr Custom Competition, both using Murom KVB-223M small rifle magnum primers.

    S&B Creedmoor Brass

    Only experience I've had of S&B rifle brass was in .308, quite a lot of neck splits after 2/3 firings, I certainly wouldn't use them again. Kranks are selling high quality Starline 6.5 Creedmoor brass in LRP for £58.40 and SRP for £71.20.
  10. Hi Mark slightly confused by the above reply about having to join the club to shoot there. My friend shot with you at Eskdalemuir last weekend along with other shooters from the Pigeon Watch forum, he didn't have to join your club to shoot there.

    6.5 Creedmoor brass

    SRP brass is available at more sensible prices nowadays, Kranks have Starline SRP at £71.20/100 (and LRP at £58.40) . It also has the standard size flash hole so no need for the smaller decapping pin. I have 100 of the Starline SRP that have just had their 5th firing with no signs of any obvious problems, I've annealed them ready for their next outing.

    How do You prep Your brass? UKV survey.

    De-Prime Wet Tumble using SS Pins (Full clean) and Dry in Halogen Anneal (If fired 3 times) Full Length Size Inspect cases Trim to length, Chamfer & De-Burr Short Wet Tumble using SS Pins (To remove lube etc.) and Dry in Halogen
  13. 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.
