    Thanks for your input guys much appreciated. Deer that is a beautiful group with your 284. You mentioned barrel life, what kind of life are you getting from your 284. And what velocity are you getting? again sorry for all the questions.
  14. Hi watch lovers, Toying with the idea of buying a Bertucci A2T watch for everyday wear, just wondering if anyone has any experience of this brand or the model? I like field watches for non formal wear and this American brand seems to offer a lot of watch for the money.
  15. Don't know when i'll be back next. Did a couple of SWAT courses with Irving/Dallas/Fort Worth PD.....what a couple of weeks ! Warmed up with 10,000 rounds each of 9mm at the range the weekend before.......probably shot more in that weekend than in 25yrs in the UK....talk about sore thumbs from loading in 95 degrees heat !! Met some great people.....happy days !! Regards, Rob.
  16. Cant be used on deer and too expensive for fox so not much use in the UK.
  17. How fast were you going when you took the photo?!
  18. I think that must have been a previous visit Gary. Never a dull moment with Dave M around 😁

    Problems Sierra TMK seating

    My 6.5x47 with 139gr scenars sat on 41grs of RS62 doesn't usually seat to the desired length on the first stroke of the ram. Sometimes it needs 2 or more.. Try it. Seat and measure.. Seat and measure and see if measures shorter each time but don't force it. The powder is compressing a bit more each stroke.. scenars have a thick jacket so less likely to dent it.. if I had a long drop tube it may help.. I do tap the case a few times on the bench top with my finger over the neck to stop powder flying out to get powder too settle down a bit more before seating..

    Its what the cullers use for the traps.

    Problems Sierra TMK seating

    Was going to say the same, often hard to get consistency seating over very compressed loads
  22. No i deer

    Problems Sierra TMK seating

    If your using a compressed load this could cause it too.. Try the lighter neck tension method first though 👍

    Problems Sierra TMK seating

    Some die manufacturers will supply a polished seater to prevent this, or you can do it yourself with lapping paste
  24. Good times Ian ....seven hilarious days and excellent craic....Were you there for the liquor store visit in Mingus?

    Problems Sierra TMK seating

    IME, the TMK's have a very soft jacket, and when seating, you can easily crush/deform the ogive if there is too much neck tension. So, you need either a better fitting seating plug, or you need to set a lighter neck tension, via an expansion mandrel/die. Dealing with the same thing in my CM, but haven't ordered the mandrels yet. Had the same issue as well in my 224 Valkyrie, and the expansion mandrel did the trick quite well.

    (Texas) one of the best place to hunt Deer

    I can imagine. It's strange even for us Americans, even when we live there. They're old laws that never came off the books, and since some have used them to make a living now (like the "uni-card" membership to a proverbial "club" that allows you to drink in restaurants), they'll probably stay in place. Kind of similar to the laws you guys used to have about Pubs, being affiliated to only one parent brewery, limiting what they could sell (at least until the laws finally changed). Made no sense, but continued on long after it was enacted until people finally couldn't avoid changing it to something that made sense.

    Problems Sierra TMK seating

    I’m having problems getting a consistent seat on my 260 with 130 TMK. I’m using redding dies with a VLD stem in it and getting up 10 thou difference with Hornady compactor. Never had a problem with 140 ELDM. Any thoughts. I’ve cleaned them and sat the other stem on the bullet Tip but it looks like it will squash the tip.
