  1. The 'Tactical' K31

    I blame CNC..........! To be honest - just about every rifle manufacturer was showing a CNC'd ally stock with a tubular hand-guard at IWA. You'll look naked without one Laurie.
  2. .224 Valkyrie

    I tried to get some info on the Valkyrie at IWA but - surprise, surprise - no one has heard of it!
  3. .224 Valkyrie

    Where's the brass coming from Dave? I've been looking to get some myself.
  4. Reloading with Rosie

    Well Bruce - Edgar Brothers had to offer some sort of incentive to get us there and make fools of ourselves! But seriously, I take your point. The world has changed massively in the last few months - what with Formula One swapping grid girls for kids. Reloading with Emily anyone?
  5. Reloading with Rosie

    Mine's been and gone - taken off line - sorry you missed it................cringe cringe!
  6. Pengo - I think the 3 from 5 is sort of 'set in stone' - UKBRA-wise.
  7. Guys - I went up to Diggle Range today. The good news - the farmer has cleared the access road so absolutely no access problem for those hoping to shoot the the CSR match this coming Saturday or the Tactical on Sunday. Could we have run the 600 yard benchrest shoot today? Well yes - except that it was so misty you couldn't see the targets - so, good call Bruce!
  8. M62

    That's what separates us Brits from the rest of Europe - the worse it gets, the better the humor!
  9. Seating Depth Rule of Thumb

    "Now what's that all about?" Pure and simple - the wind. I've shot competitive benchrest with a 22PPC and 6PPC for 25 years, using proper machine front rest, rear bag AND WIND FLAGS! Even so, I'd be fibbing if I said I'd never shot a half MOA group and so would every other benchrest shooter on the planet!
  10. Norma 7mm saum brass

    Yes - it's best to do the primer-pockets AFTER the first firing. If you do it on un-fired brass, as you say, they are tight and you risk opening them up slightly - which you don't want to do as slack primer pockets will often be the reason you scrap your brass after a few firings.
  11. AI AT Build

    Benny - here's a pic of a Fortmeier and an Atlas on an AI AX chassis. Also 1200 yards? Why aren't we talking 12-52 S&B? Or at least 8-32. You can't have too much power with a rested rifle.
  12. Seating Depth Rule of Thumb

    This is a problem with many factory rifles - which are throated 'long' to cope with any situation/bullet. The 'one calibre' seating depth is a good 'rule of thumb' for those just learning to reload. You can go much less than this - but not if you're ramming the bullet against the feed-ramp. Load 'em carefully, by hand. Having said all that - if you're getting 0.7 inch groups with a Bergara, I would say you've already exceeded the manufacturer's expectations.
  13. Reloading with Rosie

    I don't know what to say - yes Bradders, a little make-up wouldn't have gone amiss. But, I was always going to look grim stood next to Rosie! Honestly, the guy who was down to do the first vid. didn't show up so I was 'railroaded' into the job. My script was all about stalking - hence the 243 case - which I know sod all about so I just had to make it up as I went along.
  14. Shooting Show

    Er, no - not yet! But soon.
  15. Shooting Show

    Just got back from the Show. Great new venue - strolled in at 11.30 no queues, no hassle parking. Good support from major manufacturers like Swarovski, Leica, Leupold, Zeiss, March , Mauser, AI etc. Bumped into plenty of UKVers and everyone seemed happy. Struggled to see everything by 4.00pm but maybe I talk too much.
