  1. Gluv, where have You got Yours from?
  2. Mattrem700, I plan on handloading to get access to high BC bullets. I don't think there's a lot to gain accuracy wise, this rifle/ammo combination already shoots 0.3MOA@100m consistently from a lightweight FTR bipod and improvised rear bag... It's a great rifle and value for money is through the roof. Mine's the black "ugly" one in the back
  3. Thanks It's Range Buddy on Android.
  4. I can't help myself and have to show off It's the third time I shot 800m in competition. Sabatti Tactical .308 Win, GGG 175gr. Wind was minimal, 1-2m/s. Temperature around 30* Celsius. What's the best You can get with factory rifle and ammo? Michal
  5. Doing my research regarding reloading I spoke with a couple of guys I know who are all decent shooters... They all have different ways of doing stuff, especially when it comes to brass preparation. Some full length resize and anneal after every shot, some just wash the brass in an ultrasonic cleaner and call it a day... How do You prep Your brass? Michal

    Sierra 155gr TMK for mid/long range?

    Laurie - thanks for the insight, that's not something You can find in PR blurb. I got excited because Sierra claims .519 @ 1900 fps and above and .490 between 1900 and 1600 fps... What are Your thoughts regarding 155.5gr Berger vs the new 155gr "PALMA" SMK? Michal
  7. Going through Sierra's catalogue I stumbled upon 155gr TMK and I'm amazed I haven't seen anyone mention it. It has a G1 BC of .519 - 5% better than 175gr SMK... Is there anything wrong with it? Seems like a perfect bullet for mid range shooting. Michal
  8. When using normal trigger mode, the reticle stays put. In set mode it vibrates during shot release. I will search for the thread You mentioned, thank You!
  9. This is not shooter induced movement. I shoot air rifle (Olympic discipline) ~ 610pts, rifle prone ~620pts, I know when I pulled a shot... There is no noticable movement on my part when shooting from a rest. Michal

    RS powders for heavy .223/6.5CM/.308 bullets

    Thank You guys - I will start with RS52
  11. Theres definitely something to it, I checked and see a tiny movement in the scope even when dry firing. I guess it's the "set" mechanism causing a vibration.

    RS powders for heavy .223/6.5CM/.308 bullets

    Thank You all. Am I correct that single base RS50 will also be less temperature sensitive?
  13. While getting familiar with my T3x I noticed that my groups when using "set" trigger are not better than when using standard, heavy setting. I also noticed a slight jerk when using "set", even when dry firing. Am I imagining things or have someone else noticed that too? Michal
  14. After doing some additional reading (Laurie's threads were very informative as always) I decided to skip the Lovex and go for Reload Swiss powders. I will be reloading: - 24" 1:8 twist Tikka .223 with 80gr SMK -28" 1:11 Sabatti .308 with 185-200gr Berger - 28" 1:8 Sabatti 6.5 Creedmoor with 142-150gr SMK Which specific RS powders would You recommend for each of those? Is there one that can do it all reasonably like Hodgon Varget? TIA, Michal

    Sabatti tactical

    Thank You, I'm quite pleased with that :) The stock trigger is a single stage 600 gram setup, quite heavy as I'm used to match triggers (60-75g on my Walthers LG and KK). It's not bad though and with rifle resting on a bipod doesn't bother me too much. Apparently You can adjust it down to 300 gram - my friend did just that, I'm scared of messing with a rifle that shoots so well. You can opt for 250/500 gram 2 stage match trigger if You want to. Sabatti claims barrell life of 10000 shots... It's also quite easy to clean. Michal
