  1. Bullet lengths for 7mm (.284) Sierra and Lapua

    Thanks for that info Laurie. That's really helpful. I was favouring the Sierra, so I will probably go with those. Many thanks! Chris
  2. Hi folks, I was wondering if anyone has any bullet length information on a couple of 7mm bullets for me. I am interested in 2 potential bullets: Sierra Tipped MatchKing 7mm 160 Grain (Polymer Tip)Lapua Scenar-L 7mm 150Grn HPBT I am trying to work out the bullet stability at a 1 in 9 twist rate, but very few manufacturers list the length. Many thanks Chris
  3. My DIY annealing machine!

    OK, so I have just received mine today. I can only say that I have been completely delighted with the whole experience. I paid with paypal gift (to save on any tax and keep the price low). The machine was extremely well package. It was in a big polystyrene box, which was braced on the inside to stop it being squashed. The machine is very high quality, and a really nice little size. I have loads of kit at home, so space is at a premium, so it will store really well. I have tested it out, and I was surprised to find that the numbers on the timing wheel matched exactly with the number of seconds before it spins. I assumed that it would take ages to find the right setting and i would have to use a stop watch etc, however it took me no time at all. This piece of kit is remarkable value, especially when you consider how much it would have cost to ship to me. Utterly brilliant, really pleased!!

  8. Scope views - podcast

    I don't know if any of you guys follow this guy on youtube, but he has recently published 4 podcasts on his experience of various scope. I found it informative. Obviously it's on one guy's view, but he is very experienced. I was surprised (and disappointed) on his experience of the Vortex PST. You may also find his view of Leupold quite surprising. https://youtu.be/-au7-yrwwog?list=PLJUaiRIEduNU_GOJo8uYAtgLCY2Q8N3Cl https://youtu.be/kjrds1Kb97s?list=PLJUaiRIEduNU_GOJo8uYAtgLCY2Q8N3Cl https://youtu.be/vxOL7AdQbp4?list=PLJUaiRIEduNU_GOJo8uYAtgLCY2Q8N3Cl https://youtu.be/txG1T2X3NSo?list=PLJUaiRIEduNU_GOJo8uYAtgLCY2Q8N3Cl Chris

    Cool, thanks both!
  10. XLR Industries Element Chassis

    Hi, I am new to the forum and I am also new to centrefire shooting. I am currently researching the equipment/platform I want to use, and I was looking for a reasonable priced Chassis system for the Remington 700. I came across the XLR Industries Element Chassis, which I think looks really good. They are an US based company, and I can't easily see a UK supplier online. I notice that one or two people on this forum have the chassis, so does anyone know where to get them from? Cheers, Chris
