    Powder for 69gr TMK

    Well 24gr of RS40 gave me a mean MV of 925m/s, that’s more like it!

    Powder for 69gr TMK

    I tried 23, 23.5 & 24gr of RS40 this morning and they all shot very well. I’ve loaded up some more at 24gr to test over the magnetospeed next weekend.

    zeroing problem

    Did you check the position of the front mount on the dovetail?

    zeroing problem

    You haven’t got the front mount too far forward have you? The dovetail tapers out and could pull the mount off centre.

    Satterlee load development method

    Pressure, velocity and action time. It doesn’t matter if the cases have been reloaded or not, as long as they’re consistent throughout the batch. There are a lot of variables within the round which you cannot truly control and two rounds is not nearly enough to establish all of the results which could occur.

    Satterlee load development method

    All of this case prep and assembly effort seems to be completely lost by firing only two rounds and concluding on the best charge weights for further development. A repeat of all of the rounds fired would no doubt result with different results! ... in my experience of a few thousand rounds fired through NATO EPVAT systems.

    Sako vs Tikka

    One more point, the Sako double stack mag allows you to fill it up in situ, where as you have to drop the tikka mag out to fill it. Here's my Sako sniping bunnies last weekend;

    Sako vs Tikka

    The only issues I’ve got with the Tikka’s is the length of the action (long!) and the plastic mags wearing at the lips causing misfeeds. The tikka recoil lug is superior to the sako. I’ve got the Sako, and I’m very happy with it. Also consider the CZ’s, they’re not as ‘polished’ but the mini Mauser action is very good.
