    Benchrest

    Just had a look at their website - got some decent looking gear at good prices - might go and have a look.

    wooden stock inletting

    Necessary tools for opening up a barrel channel? A short length of wooden dowel, coarse sandpaper and a dollop of elbow grease - unless of course you have a milling machine.....
  3. Kevin - bargain of the century! I'm thinning my stuff out, otherwise I couldn't resist it at that price.

    Ladder V's OCW: Which works best for you?

    One-third MOA at 1000 yards! Good luck with that - this year, in the UKBRA 1000 yd Championship, I would estimate that around 700 5-shot groups were shot - no one got a 1/3 MOA group! Please bring your rifle along to one of our shoots and clean-up!

    Improved 284?

    And why did he do it? Well, I was lucky enough to shoot with Bill at the Hawksridge 1000 yd benchrest range way back in 2004 and I asked him. The reason he took out the taper was simply to aid extraction when 'running the gun' - i.e getting five shots of in about 10 seconds.
  8. John, Have you done any load dev with the 33XC yet? Powder choice etc?
  9. Great pics, great weather - thanks for sharing.
  10. I've just build a rifle on the MDT ESS chassis - you might like to have a look at it on Target Shooter http://www.targetshooter.co.uk/?p=3051

    REM 700 blueprint

    Yep I would agree Popsbengo - spend all that money getting a Remmy blueprinted and when you come to sell it, the work isn't obvious, so it's just a Remmy and you get nowt for it. However - it does let you put 'blueprinted' in the sales ad which might baffle a few............. As Baldie says, the sloppy bolt-to-body fit is the biggest difference between a Remmy and a custom action but a new PT&G bolt will cost you even more. But, again quoting Baldie - you won't see much difference - unless perhaps you build it into a 6PPC benchrest rifle - then you will struggle to get a blueprinted Remmy to compete with a decent custom action. With its massive ejection port and mag cut-out there's very little 'meat' left in the Remmy action to keep it rigid and there is an excellent article showing one rigged with strain gauges flexing when fired. It makes sense to start off with a decent custom action in the first place if you are seriously chasing accuracy - cheaper in the long run. But - what's this '30K dream rifle'?
