    50 Cal Ban Dropped

    They say there's not many 50 calibre fac holders and these should be held in a endangered group. Can't understand why like any legally held gun owners should be targeted. We are all law abiding citizens who have to provide total security for our weapons. We jump through many loops to keep our sport safe. And to keep our choice of guns. Our ranges have security and safety standard embossed in to our members as we ensure safety at all levels.

    New barrel breaking in

    Hi all , thanks for the various does and don’t, myself and Steve have bore scoped the barrel we proceeded to use a pistol rod,with bronze brush lapped with fine wire wool and drops of oil . Afterward I cleaned the barrel and some minute bits of metal findings were removed. Since I’ve got to zero the scope I’ve opted to fire and clean the barrel. Through the process of zeroing. i must admit that when I purchased the rifle , it was assumed (gunsmith) that I know what to do in breaking in the barrel. Fortunately Steve is on hand and refreshed my memory. I appreciate that everyone has there own way and there’s Not a set way to break in the barrel. Nick

    New barrel breaking in

    As I remember I did JB my old factory Remington rifle barrel. As it was recommended to do so , since my 6br is a Louther Benchrest barrel I have no intention to JB it. I will follow Steve DUNN guidance for my barrel as I did with my 7mm barrel, Steve ,Laurie and Vince are the ones who have guided me on my Fclass shooting and will also guide me on Benchrest shooting. if I can’t succeed with the input from these people then I will take up Fishing !!

    Which electronic powder thrower/dispenser

    For me Hornady Lock and Load like any powder scales spend your money wisely, always check the charge on my Hornady Balance beam scales. Choose a suitable location for using your scales, and don’t rush the reloading.
