    Leupold Mark 5HD 5-25x56 IR 35mm Anyone ?

    Wow that surprised me on the price tag.... I'm sure it's a cracking scope but if you ask me these top end optics have a huge mark up. Way way over priced. No offence intended. Atb No I deer

    Just about the sexiest tactical mounts there is !

    What's the new Mk5 leupy like....? MK4 glass is superb and a great scope but my eye couldnt keep the reticle from doubling occasionly which I found annoying but that's probaly my vision not the scope...

    BC,s

    My bal cal is shooter

    BC,s

    I tried G7 and found my elevations were way out and found G1 much better for me,I've no I deer why it was way out ðŸĪ”,I can't remember exactly but it was a couple of minutes or so keen. Not sure if the bc for the 7mm 180gr ELD match bullets has been confirmed yet. Last time I checked it had TBD which may have ment to be determined..! Again these hornady Bc's are with this doplar radar which is probaly only a gnats willy difference anyway

    0.5 moa at 1000yds is pretty reliable

    Entering the Bc's in my bal cal with all the other info gets me real close,good enough for my needs

    Benchrest

    The brass gets annealed on a AMP annealer,sometimes every firing sometimes every 2 or 3, this time they had just been annealed and I came across 2 out of 120 I've loaded for a competition with no neck tension,there's about another 80 I've not yet loaded so maybe more yet.

    Benchrest

    Have I missed something as Nick was ripping the necks off the cases,what was the cause...? There is so many different types of dies nowadays, most still say FL size,some with bushing and some use a custom expander mandrel after they have been bushed to a size so to be expanded after which seems to me the best solution,hopefully very soon I will receive my first custom expander mandrel and try this technique, reason being I've been getting the odd case that's had none or very little neck tension and all the brass was neck turned at the same time and the same bushing was used ðŸĪ”

    Have you remembered to lube inside the necks...? Expander ball will be 2 or 3 thousanths smaller than the bullets diameter Unscrew the spindle and measure the expander ball. Before you unscrew the spindle measure how much the decapping pin pertrudes below the die bottom so you put it back the same 👍
  13. Mine is a 1 in 8 and I use 139gr scenars.they will do you nicely,41grs of RS62 works great,10 thousanths jump

    Whidden F/L sizer die neck tension

    I didn't really get to the bottom of the problem,the die i had skimmed brass off every neck. Forsters customer service was really good,Hannams were just unlucky to be the stockist. They were still helpful and quickly sorted things out with forster and me. The neck wall on your brass maybe fraction too thick by the sounds of what's happening too you,the tolerances are so tight. Expand yours and neck turn them for uniformity and only take off the high spots 👍

    Whidden F/L sizer die neck tension

    Yes Dave it was.i did about 190 before I notice all the brass trimmings on the press because I didn't have my glasses on 😂😆. Partly my fault but I didn't make the die.... Lapua brass

    Whidden F/L sizer die neck tension

    I had issues with a forster BR die set,first one skimmed brass off the necks ,i neck turned them all to uniform necks,sent the die back and the new one i was sent over resized the necks,it had a 7mm button on a 6.5 cal die ðŸĪŠ This may be your problem too...! I sent this die back aswell and someone from forster rang me from the US appoligizing for the problems I had,asked me for some damaged brass etc etc, he got Hannams to send me another die set and micrometre seater as compensation for my aggro.
  17. How fast do you want to launch a 139 to 147gr bullet,windrift wise again very little in the 6.5's, you'd have to go out too 1000yds to see the difference Anybody have comparisons at hand. According to my bal cal my 27 inch barrel will launch a 139gr scenars at 2836fps at 55f. Adjusted my bal cal velocity by 100fps faster and it a 3.5 inch gain in full value 10mph wind. The extra 100fps is only 1.5 inch gain in a 5mph half value wind 😉ðŸĪ”
  18. There's the usual 6.5's then there's the high performance 6.5's,depends what your after and there is the trade off with barrel life. I've got a 6.5x47 and it's great, I can't see what I stand to gain by changing to another 6.5 cal, the 6.5x47 is very accurate and efficient.

    .338 Norma Magum

    I can invisage the bigger the bullet bigger the meplat,Bergers are Gucci and a good wind call would be better,scenars are IMHO very good.

    The 300gr Bergers won't measure and weigh any better, the scenars may benefit from pointing as they have got a big meplat compared to the Bergers. The 285gr ELD's got the ballistic tip and they have the biggest BC but are they as consistant and the Bergers and scenars....? Probaly not and they would be that bit longer and may not fit the mag.

    284 win & 162g ELDX

    Sorry it was at 55f not 52f but it would only show a few fps difference,it will do 2900fps on a hot day,if you want to run them at 3000fps 52.5 to 53grs of RS60 😆. Some are running on RS62 but I've not tried it myself though I have 3kg of it in stock I run my 6.5x47 on.i don't feel the need to try. N160 works too

    284 win & 162g ELDX

    Hi Paul My 284 is 26 inch 1 in 8, I use lapua brass,BR2's, 57grs of N165 pushes a 162gr amaxs according to my bal cal at current temperature of 52f will be doing 2880fps and there very good 😁I've not tried the ELDX but the velocities will be similar,I hope that helps

    .338 Norma Magum

    Yes 93grs was a great group but very similar at 94.5grs,you need all the velocity you can get from the 300gr scenars to get the best out of them for ELR ,the scenars are great bullets. Are you pointing them for the extra BC...? I'm not familiar with the 300 grainers only 6.5 and 7mm ones. How consistant do the measure and weigh,the ones I use are as consistant as anything else I've used. I have shot the 300gr scenars in a mates 338 lap mag.they were great out too 1800yds.
