    Creating a new load

    I admit the jamming is a bit caveman gbal but when needs must.
  7. Hi folks, after a tab style rear bag. Ideally I'd like British made and not a a silly price for a bag with some plastic in. Cheers!

    Creating a new load

    Hey man, I've just had to start a load for my .284 so I'm fresh off the process. There's a lot of things you could do with sorting components if you're that way inclined. Perhaps a target shooting member could enlighten us to the ins and outs of that. If it's just general shooting/hunting then I'd start by inspecting your brass just to check for any damage or visual anomalies. I'd then full length size all brass, (Consistency is key). If you wanted to check case length now would be the time to do it after sizing. Trim if necessary. De-burr and chamfer. For your seating depth you can either use a gauge and modified case to do this or load a bullet in to an unprimed empty case to the very minimum depth to hold the bullet. You can then load the bullet in the chamber essentially until the the bullet hits the lands and gets pushed back in to the case, once your bolt has closed that is then the max seating depth for your chosen bullet. Unload the dummy round. This may be quite hard and may need persuaded out, I've heard a length of wooden dowel passed down from the muzzle and tapped to release the bullet is the safest method for barrel damage safety. It may unload with a good pull of the bolt. Searching the bullet back 20 thousands of an inch from the lands would be an acceptable starting point. Do as much research as possible on possible loads with your chosen components. Either from manufacturer books or forums. The latter to be taken with a pinch of salt. There's a few techniques for finding an accurate load, you could find a starting point and work up by 0.5 grain increments or possibly by optimum charge weight method which is usually increasing by 1% per charge load from a chosen start point. Videos on this methodcan be found easily on YouTube. Hope this helps, there is more you can do but I'd say that is a good starting point.
  9. Can you use an 18650 battery in the magneto speed? As it can use 2 cr123's that usually equates to an 18650???? I know batteries can be quite specific things though.
  10. Cheers folks, I've been using kg1 on the barrel since I got it, I have it one clean with cr2 but didn't get much out except carbon fouling. I Concur that scrubbing is far better for carbon. I've only used my nylon brush so far as I can bring myself to use the bronze!
  11. I should maybe add that this is a stalking and plinking or more like whacking rifle. Not a match or competition rifle
