  1. As an aside, can anyone think of a single Tactical application for the .20 Tactical?
  2. Is it just the photos or does the lettering on the side of the action have Devcon in it?

    Alternative to RL7

    N130 or, as suggested above, N120.

    T3x Trigger Question

    I think you’re confused, Cam. A single stage trigger, such as the standard Tikka offering, remains stationary until pressure causes it to release. A two stage trigger moves under initial pressure then comes to a stop and requires additional pressure to cause it to release.
  5. Sounds like the Home Secretary has made his mind up but doesn’t really know why...

    OCD rant!

    I sympathise. The one which grips my sXXt is ‘of’ instead of ‘have’.

    Load for 6mmBR

    N140 data for the lighter bullets is hard to come by, but it works well. I use N140 with 70 grain bullets.
  8. Are you thinking of selling the action? I remember you advertising it a couple of years ago.

    Two stage trigger for Tikka M595

    If it’s the 6.5x47, it’s a set trigger, not 2 stage.

    Have we really stooped to discussing socks? I think I have finally lost the will to live.

    .223 barrel cleaning

    Indeed. So many used rifles are pitted through neglect, I am just bemused that people don’t bother. Pushing a patch with some solvent on it through a bore really isn’t that hard.

    .223 barrel cleaning

    Why would you not clean it after every outing? Remind me never to buy a used rifle from you, please.

    .20 cal specific custom action?

    I don’t think so- the Stiller Predator shares the Remington 700 footprint, so is not a true short action.

    .20 cal specific custom action?

    MB, Raytrade (the Remington importers) are also the UK Dakota agents. If a single shot bolt action is your thing, I don’t think you can find a nicer true short actioned rifle than the Dakota Varminter.
  18. Might be an idea to add the make and model of the action?

    No offence intended to the OP, but these were my exact thoughts, too.

    6mmbr which primer

    I use BR4s in mine. I once tested them against Federal GM205Ms out of interest. The BR4s were noticeably more accurate and the chronograph showed their ES to be better. I keep the Federals for the 222 and the Tac now.
  21. Full length photos added, as requested.
  22. Cooper M22 single shot. Synthetic stock ceracoated in titanium with black spider web spatter to add a little texture. Fitted with a Sassen stainless barrel in a modified Sendero profile by Neil Mckillop, who also removed the horrible flexible factory bedding compound and replaced it with Devcon. Tube is 24" with 1 in 10 twist, threaded 1/2" UNF with invisible thread protector and throated for 70 grain Ballistic Tips. Round count sub 300, including a careful break in. Burris 30 mm Signature Zee rings with plastic inserts included. No turn neck (.272”) £1000.

    Sako 22 Hornet action and wood stock

    No problem. I see you have managed to amend the title of the thread now. I have only seen two M78 Hornets in 30 years of being a Sako anorak, but they are out there.
  24. The groups were shot at a shade over 100 yards, prone from a bipod. PM me an email address and I’ll get some photos taken tomorrow.
