    223 Build

    Nice mini mauser action, i though my 527 was a bargain 220 : ( what make is the rail ? id prefer this to say a factory tikka t3 . Nice looking rifle . simon6ppc on tube uses the tmk in his 223 sako with great affect. Think he's the same guy on here with same name . Good luck with development i hope its a tack driver.
  2. Damn bob - sorry to hear you having to give it up .

    Probably one of the best hunting videos

    Quite amazing but can't help thinking it may be less traumatic and quicker with a well placed bullet. I think most of us on here hunt in one way or another - just dont like seeing any animal suffer. eg- Why im against 17 for foxy personaly-.. But realize it may have a place in certain countrys / senario . Atb

    Sentinel 6XC

    Love the tungsten finish, im wondering why is there a shortage of the sentinel? If there's demand there - which im sure there is ?

    Fire forming help

    You should ideally make a few test rounds and watch for pressure signs on the case head and primer edge especially . If you reach high pressure signs on either thats not your safe forming load in my mind . You should reduce . BUT you may not get the case shoulder to form 100% so a second firing may be needed. Thats basically what i had to do on my first Ackley many year ago - i personaly wouldn't do another .. Good luck - stay safe ..

    Redding micrometer seating dies

    If you dont use the vld seater bit u could end up crushing the tips of your bullets slightly as they more pointier / longer etc . Iv know some people just strip there std seater and machine a deeper hole to allow the extra space needed for vlds - think this what your refer too ?
