    Murom primers required Derby

    How do you think the gas was leaking back to cut the bolt face? I have just started using Murom primers and find them a tighter fit in primer pockets than CCI or Federal. I haven’t seen any that have pierced so can’t see how the primer choice could cause the effect you describe unless the primer pockets were already shagged?
  2. can you give me internal and external measurements and weight please Thanks
  3. Nice sounding project - have you considered 300 Norma??

    Long range scope

    Schmidt and Bender 5-25, Kahles 5-25 or Nightforce ATACR in similar spec would be my choices
  5. Ha ha that’s so true!! By the time we all perfect our gear there is only one weak link left in the chain 😂😂. A great result indeed

    people thoughts on moderators.

    I have been incredibly impressed with the Freyr and Devik mods from Edinburgh Rifles. https://www.freyr-devik.no/products They are incredibly lightweight and very quiet indeed next to other mods (the larger ones more so than the smaller ones as you would expect). They also have titanium innards so they shouldnt rot away. We have two in our household (196 on a 308 stalking rifle and a 280 on a 6.5x47 PRS rifle) and I would consider another like a shot!

    Here you go, it is based on the default data off QL so bear that in mind. As always start low and work up, may not be safe in your rifle etc..... I assumed a 25 inch barrel as on a CZ 550.

    Concentricity gauges

    Could I pick the UKV collective brain please. Like many others I strive to obtain the best results from my handloads and aim for concentric ammunition. There seem to be two methods of measurement of concentricity, those that reference off the case wall such as the Sinclair comparator and those that reference off the cartridge long axis by centring meplat and case head such as the Hornady. Is one better than the other? It strikes me that a non concentric case (eg small dent) could result in an indication of excessive runout whilst the bullet could be perfectly aligned with the long axis. Would the Sinclair type be better for assessing case concentricity and the Hornady better for assessing concentricity of loaded ammunition?

    reloading 6.5x55

    RS60 works really well in the 6.5x55, good terminal effect with Barnes 100 or 120g TTSX, 120g Nosler BT and the 120g Sierra pro hunters

    Optics and mount for .338 Lapua Magnum

    S&B PMII 5-25 with 2nd focal plane reticle and a 30 MOA rail in Third eye rings for me because it’s what I had already when I got the 338. Saying that I do thing it is a good fit for the application

    Knife kit?

    Which wood are the scales made out of? Pretty sure I used kingwood which is similar colour. Like the Damascus blade!!

    Measuring Case Volume

    I think you have thought more about this than the rest of us!! 🤣🤣 Let us know the results, it would be interesting to compare H20 based volume with paraffin based volume

    Knife kit?

    I did an Enzo trapper in D2. Great knife for stalking but a bit short in the blade for bleeding Reds. https://www.thestalkingdirectory.co.uk/threads/had-a-bash-at-making-a-knife.115159/
