  1. Harris bipod 9-13” swivel

    Only have a 9-13" swivel with smooth legs available, I can't stand the notched legs myself but it's personal preference I accept.
  2. Drone/Rifle dilemma

    Get the Barton Gunworks rails for the CZ, they reach well forward to give adequate eye relief, the price is reasonable(ish) and they're precisely machined so you'll have no problems with fit either.
  3. 260 rem 123gn ELD-Match & N560 1:8 twist

    I have some kindly given to me to try. Only problem is, they won't be any good for hunting whereas the ELDM's likely are (despite being a 'match' bullet). I'm trying to get a 'one-bullet-fits-all' solution. It probably won't work out that way.
  4. 260 rem 123gn ELD-Match & N560 1:8 twist

    I'm up to 43.2gns for 2870fps with N550, next few loads will be in .2gn increments up to 44.2gns. So far there are no pressure signs, bolt lift fine, primer fine. I think if I can get around another 30fps, which should be on the next step, I can play around with seating depth to tune the groups. I'm going to try 143gn bullets too as the 123gn ELDM's group pretty badly so far.
  5. Price dropped, but I won't go lower, it's virtually as new.
  6. Hmm, not sure how it compares to a magnetospeed, as I tend to borrow a MSpeed when at the range so leave this one at home. I've never done a like for like comparison. I used it for all my 243 and 17hh load development though in most weather conditions and not had a problem. I think really super dull days it may need some assistance, but on wet, really super dull days I stay indoors, mostly.
  7. 260 rem 123gn ELD-Match & N560 1:8 twist

    Full 550 data (max book load for both and N150 is faster)
  8. ProChrono digital chronograph, latest version complete with the hard to find Bluetooth adapter. Less than a year old and in perfect condition with all original packaging. Can be posted foc to UK mainland address. The Bluetooth adapter let's you control the unit remotely from up to 30 ft away. You can also automatically store your string data to your mobile phone, automatically calculate ES and SD, store multiple strings. The app is free and compatible with android and iPhone devices. £150 exl. post (the bluetooth adapter is over £90 new).
  9. It's an utter bargain and if I could have sold the Sightron in a timely fashion it would already be on the 243. Pete, I've pm'ed you on the other place but will do so here as well.
  10. 260 rem 123gn ELD-Match & N560 1:8 twist

    Good to know.
  11. 260 rem 123gn ELD-Match & N560 1:8 twist

    So, does this mean developing two loads? Winter/spring, summer/autumn? I think I may revisit the N160 too and see if upping the charge there has an effect as there weren't any signs of pressure with that combo either. How temperature unstable are the double base powders? Will I be likely to encounter a sudden spike on hot days?

    Barrel is 600mm varmint (Tikka T3x). Brass Remington 243 sized to 260 and formed. (in old money 23 5/8")
  13. 260 rem 123gn ELD-Match & N560 1:8 twist

    Not sure if it being a new barrel affects velocity at all? I'm going to up the charges gradually and see what happens. At 41.5gns I have no sticky bolt, no change to primer, no different to the starting charge. All velocities recorded with Magnetospeed v3, so I'm confident that the measured MV is correct.
