    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.
  4. What are the pros and cons of using Molly coated bullets against Non Molly coated bullets? Is there any issues of cleaning a rifle barrel when you use Molly coated bullets against Non Molly coated bullets. Nick
  5. No . On this subject . Therefore will leave well alone and stick to what I know. I will load scenar L 105 for my 6br and follow your load data advise and see you on the range in due course. Nick

    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.

    Hi all, I had the great pleasure to shoot the first 600 Benchrest at diggle last Sunday even better my very first time using electronic targets! Now on one of my 5 shots fired a couple of my shots were showing SD 5.4 someone made a comment wow they are good? To be honest I’ve no idea what they were referring to and since I was shooting had no time to follow on with the conversation. i can’t for the life of me remember what’s so interesting about SD ?

    Load development

    Hi all, now looking for some input, I shoot at Diggle fine club, mainly Fclass shooting, my current load for my 1-9 30” heavy profile barrel is Viht 165 with 53 gn. Using Scenar L 180 .My MV 2691. If I wanted to tweek my load what would my load be ? Is there such a thing of a sweet spot ? i don’t want to burn my barrel out, I am curious if a slightly higher charge would increase my results on paper ? cheers Nick

    Load development

    Good read, will read again and have a dabble. cheers for the input. Nick
  18. What scope would be classed suitable for Benchrest shooting and what type of reticle would be used ? Budget is £900.00. shooting at diggle for 2019 so looking to purchase a scope rather than using one scope to cover Fclass and Benchrest. Nick
  19. Yes the gun handling is good, the loading of my ammo is good, still learning I think you never stop learning . My scope is 8-32 and very happy with the rifle and scope set up. My discipline is Fclass and I like the Benchrest I only wish I could shoot more Benchrest.its like vince says practice and practice gives great dividends and reflects on your scoring and wind reading which at diggle is one hell of a windy place. If you can combine everything and still hit the target and score then there is definitely an improvement. Work and family commitments reduce my attendance at times.
  20. Hi vince, want to shoot the 600 next week, as it’s my mums anniversary of her passing on 23rd .hence No shooting.
  21. Thanks, I will use my sightron for both disciplines.

    Couldn't resist.

    I’d pick up Seiko 5 sports 200 metre Kinetic watch some months ago , with broken stainless steel strap for £30.00 . RRP £350.00 put new strap on and changed seiko deploy catch over onto new strap. Looks great. have you thoughts of having a new movement in the watch that given up?
