New stick for general target work in 6mm Norma Dasher

Just starting on load development, using 105g Berger hybrids and IMR 4166 getting nodes at 31.4g 2890 FPS and 32.4g giving 2955 FPS. Very low ES & SD, first time I’ve Dealt with the small case 6mm’s

Also a bit of a learning curve re. Ski type by pods and rear bags, need to play with grip leaning towards free recoil perhaps?

Very please so far with build

Scope is March 10-60 HighMaster in March UK rings. Action has 20 moa rail. Must say the optics are very clear edge to edge.

Short throw on the ultimatum is not as heavy as other 60 deg actions i’ve Used.

Very  nice Terry.

I was playing with one of these actions last week, and will probably end up barrelling it.

There is one fault with them however. The bolt is so fat [its about .835 ] in diameter, it throws all the geometry of the cocking dog lower etc. Not a problem on a stock like yours, but it causes problems with chassis etc, as the dog won't clear the stock.

This also means that the magazine [when fitted in a chassis ] fouls the fatter diameter bolt.

All can be sorted with correct pillar heights in a composite/wood stock, but major headaches in a chassis.

Nice smooth action though.

Evening Dave, 

yes bolt is larger dia. and could see the issue in a chassis but I’m off chassis these days - to me they’re like pubic hairs 🤔😂

not sure what they use for a coating but it sure is smooth?

It looks like DLC to me Terry.

I was looking at the bolt closely. By its very design [3 lug ] The bolt has to be as fat as the lug dia.

I swapped the head for the magnum bolt head, and it looked to me, to be about as far as it would go, ie, no lap mag or Norma.

is yours a single shot ?

Mr Egg,

Yes a Gunwerks Verdict, nice item, slim wrist and vertical grip with thumb shelf (ambidextrous). The pop off cheek piece is and engineering 'thing' in itself 😎

Ronin,

Did turn out nice, thank you. Just need to sort my *hite out re shooting off bunny ears and big bipods

Get the bag settled (tap the bag with the stock base )

 

Use a strip of carpet (I kid you not) under the skis

Ronin,

re. Carpet, you’re the second person to say that, I’ll nip out and try to obtain some variations on this.
