  1. 6.5mm bullet options.

    I’m a fan of the 139gr too for price and also consistent availability. It just works. I’m still struggling to get the RDF to shoot well. I’ve also been shooting a lot of the 130gr Norma Diamond with a G7 of 0.295 in factory Prime ammunition at 2935 FPS and if you run the numbers it does remarkably well vs more commonly used peers.
  2. It’s good to know someone on here is capable of arguing that Newton’s laws of motion are wrong. Ask yourself three questions: 1. If muzzle blast is deflected downwards where does that force of motion direct the muzzle ? 2. Why did Surefire re-design their brakes to includes diffusion ports at the top side of their brake ? 3. Why do competition shooters not use pepperpot designed brakes ? This article is quite interesting and shows some working examples. http://precisionrifleblog.com/2015/08/12/muzzle-brake-blast-ground-signature/ As I alluded to previously, if you have good technique you can avoid ‘hop’ with or without a brake. If the OP is struggling with bipod hope he will find good instruction to be the best way to reduce ‘hop’ but he can also change his muzzle brake as that will help too. Naturally, if he’s shooting a rimfire it might not help much but the larger the calibre the more any weakness in his technique or equipment will be exaggerated.
  3. A pepperpot muzzle brake isn’t ideal to help mitigate recoil. If your technique isn’t great then it exaggerates any weakness in your position. Get a brake that deflects force backwards rather than downwards which merely encourages the muzzle to ‘hop’.
  4. Does anyone know what the factory set AI firing pin protrusion should be for a standard .308 bolt face / firing pin ? If anyone has the capacity to measure this I’d be curious to know ? Thx
  5. How Clean is clean??

    26 times ?? Please stop. Watch this and learn from the best in the business.
  6. This looks amazing. Now all I need to do is persuade my wife to cancel our Xmas hols ! #getcreative !
  7. Nosler 175gr RDF

    I’m struggling to get them to shoot well. The BC is high as you know but maybe they are a bit load sensitive.
  8. This from Thunderbeast Arms: Many people believe that suppressors need to be kept very clean to perform well. This is not true. All of our silencers are sealed and welded, and cannot be taken apart. We do this to produce the strongest, lightest, and smallest suppressor, since adding threads would compromise one of more of those factors. In addition, the full 360-degree welded baffle core featured in most of our centerfire suppressors could not be taken apart anyway. We also do this to ensure long-term accuracy and reliability of the product. Our centerfire rifle suppressors need minimal cleaning in most applications. The only "gunk" they accumulate is some carbon buildup, which is self-limiting since each shot will knock some loose. We recommend taking a baseline weight measurement when the suppressor is new. When the suppressor has gained approx 2-3 ounces, it's time to clean. This can be accomplished using CLR (a ZEP product - find at Home Depot) to dissolve the carbon. Soak the inside of the suppressor in ZEP and flush it every day for several days. Alternating with an Ultrasonic cleaner can help to break up stubborn carbon. Do not use CLR in an ultrasonic cleaner - it will damage the tank. NOTE ON STAINLESS STEEL: Please note that the 22 TAKE DOWN should not be cleaned using CLR because its baffles are stainl.ess For ULTRA series suppressors, CLR should not soak the "Direct Thread Insert" for Direct Thread ULTRA suppressors. The best way to accomplish this is to have the thread end up and fill the suppressor up to just short of the direct thread insert, or about 1.25" into the suppressor.

    That's a shame, it was a great event but it's good to know we are going to have at least 2 subs
  11. SnipersHide Cup 2017

    anyone know why the RBL match has been postponed this year ?
  12. SnipersHide Cup 2017

    I've registered for the HideCup at Rifles Only in Texas and also for the Core Long Range Challenge Finale the weekend before in Florida. Can't wait and I'll never complain about the price of a match in the U.K. again....$275 for the HideCup, ouch.
  13. Listen to a George. He knows more than he rest of us combined. Simple.

    I love the concept of pairing an experienced and amateur shooter for a combined team score.
