    Big problem with new rifle

    Does the action ‘dry fire’ ok?perhaps something inside the bolt is binding up when cocking the firing pin spring or compressing the ejector springs its times like this where you start having to eliminate possibilities... hope it’s an easy fix 👍🏻
  2. Yes it is, and it’s still available 😉

    H S Precision stock uk importer?

    This one: https://www.hsprecision.com/shop2/rifle-stocks/remington-700/remington-pro-series-varmint/remington-model-7-varmint-stock-psv063/ Or something very similar inlet for a model seven action with a Varmint profile barrel... its an embryonic idea for a semi custom build 🤞🏻

    Remington Primer Reliability

    I have just finished my last batch of 500 Remington 91/2 lr primers (243 & 308) and all functioned flawlessly. Perhaps there’s a duff batch??? luckily none of my foxes heard the ‘click’!

    FL & neck sized powder charge query

    Just experimenting.... If it improves things great, if not I still have an accurate load to fall back on 😀

    FL & neck sized powder charge query

    That was my thinking too, but always better to hear it from someone else 👍🏻
  14. Hi, done a little bit of reloading for 243 over the years but have always full length resized, had a go at neck sizing some cases and before I load the rounds up I began to wonder will I have to develop a new powder charge or can I stick with my existing powder weight? Cases are once fired in the rifle I am loading for, primer, powder type and bullet make/weight the same as my existing accurate load. thanks for any guidance in advance Stumpy
