    K & M neck turner

    As above I'm looking for a K&M neck turner, preferably just the cutting head. If anyone has one that's no longer used please PM me.
  2. He's free to ask whatever he wants for it, and do we know that he hasn't already paid £55 a tub? We don't. quite simply if something is priced to high then it won't sell, or if it does sell then someone really wanted it and is happy to pay the price. The for sale section is going to turn into a bun fight if everyone chips in with that price is to high. Banus, this isn't aimed just at you, it's for everyone's benefit.

    Lapua 7mm 180 gr Scenar L

    After 3/4 hour of searching UK websites for this said bullet I have come to the conclusion I will probably find it easier here! if anyone has a box or part box of the 180 grain Scenar L and wants to sell them It would be greatly appreciated, the only catch is I need them by next Friday.
  6. Pete, I'm quietly confident that all my Bartleins were made in America ?
  7. Brand loyalty, you have probably hit the nail on the head.
  8. Or perhaps they don't have money to burn and so stick with what they know works. ive probably had 12 or more cut rifled Bartlein barrels and every single one has worked, some were easier to get working than others, but they all shot or still do shoot 1/2 MOA. Anything above that and you will never be seriously competitive at F class, I'm not sure of the accuracy levels required for CSR or PRS. Button or cut rifled, the costs will be same to purchase and chamber so why take a chance, fantastic if you can afford to, but most of us can't so we stick with what we know and what people win with. That's not to say that buttoned rifled barrels don't shoot, they clearly do, Broughton and Benchmark are testament to that.

    F class type Rear sandbags

    On closer inspection it's not in a good enough condition to sell, so I will keep it in the car as a back up. The stitching has gone on the ears which is a common problem with the Edgewood bags, or at least that's my experience. being low isn't always a good idea, there are certain firing points on Century that you will be grateful of a medium or high rear bag when using a Seb rest or similar.

    F class type Rear sandbags

    I have a spare Edgewood now that I have my Lenzi. It has had a repair and is full of Sand I have to check if it's Zirkon. pretty sure it's this one

    Norma powders

    Thanks for that Laurie. I was looking into MRP which would appear to be a good powder for the F Open shooter, but I see from The Norma data that it's a double base powder, so that combined with a high price rules it out.

    Norma powders

    Out of interest Laurie can you give us a price difference say between Vhit and Norma?
