  1. Inconsistent Neck Tension.

    There is one variable not raised in reply here (well at least my skim reading suggests so). I immediately spotted the brass had been sonically cleaned and I didn't spot where inside neck lube had been used at any stage. When brass is so squeaky dry clean from this treatment, it can be very grippy on projectiles. I'd be tempted to use an expander mandrel with the neck dipped in graphite (~ Imperial dry lube) after the cases had been sized. This will leave a residual lubrication in the neck and should give more consistent true neck tension. Just a thought..
  2. You'd have a gas-cut bolt face if that was happening
  3. BSA Martini

    The Aussies used to use Cadets for varmint rigs. It remember reading about a lot of them in the Aussie "Sporting Shooter" magazine as a kid.
  4. Remington gone bust.

    It's important to realise that a company being declared "bankrupt " in the US is rather different to the UK (from what I understand) or here in NZ. That status is less dire in the US, ie, there is still a chance of survival.
  5. You know when!!

    The seller has 100% +ve feedback
  6. ear defenders

    You'll never get a perforation from that sort of small arms fire. Artillery close up is a different matter..
  7. ATACR vs Razor AMG

    You'd go a long way to find a more rugged scope than an ATAC-R. Built like the proverbial..
  8. Tika T3 drawing

    You about Edi?
  9. Look at this off AccurateShooter Daily Forum: Nikon have just released two new models and at face value, they seem definitely worth considering.
  10. Barnes 165 and Varget Help

    The ADI website shows Varget (AR2208) loads for 165s: http://www.adi-powders.com.au/handloaders/rifle.asp?Calibre=30-06+Springfield Looks like you can get high 2800s with 165s
  11. AMP Annealer - Aztec Upgrade

    Had a read through of the current SF thread on AMP and here's what the makers have said: "...Our recent reveal of the AZTEC mode has caused quite a stir and now that we have a moment we would like to clear up some of the misconceptions and assumptions we have noticed. 1. AZTEC mode is NOT a firmware upgrade nor a patch to the existing software. (We are aware that we called it such when we made our original Facebook post and that we referred to it as an "update" in the video but this is simply not the case. We have amended the original Facebook post to reflect this. "
  12. 6mmbr which primer

    I'm surprised no-one has mentioned the 450 primer. It's known to work well in 6BR. I prefer to use the same primer in my BR and the 6- and 6.5x47s. Keeps it simple and it works.
  13. 'Low mag' scopes...

    If the brief is ".222, slim profile, close and up to 200yds", I'd be thinking something like a 2.5-8x36 VX-3. I have one on a bush deer rifle and they're very flexible yet compact
  14. I've spent a lot of time amongst shooters in the US and have never heard the term "heads" used once. I've only ever seen it used (erroneously in my opinion) on this forum
  15. Varminting in Australia

    I'd suggest this claim is mere wishful thinking. Short of straight chemical poisoning or mechanical destruction (ie, bullets), organisms have a remarkable ability to develop resistance and often full immunity given enough time. As they say, time will tell
