  1. Yes, Sinclair was absorbed by Brownells a few years ago but you should be able to get a response, I presume they still sell the item, otherwise a trip to a engineering supply shop with the tool should work. I'm fortunate in that they are deemed essential, or the one near me is, one of the best tool shops in the North West.
  2. I just measured the one on mine and it is .134" with a very coarse thread. A 6-40 screw seemed to be a close match on diameter but the thread is too fine so I'm guessing 6-32 although putting it alongside an 8-32 screw the pitch seemed coarser than that.
  3. Guys, TR is a British discipline and .30-06 was never used, it was .303 before the 7.62mm became the service round and as TR mirrors the service round of the day, the use of 7.62 target rifles became the norm and then 5.56mm could be used as it was introduced into the services. I'm not sure how long after the change to 7.62 the .303 could be used for TR, it may still be an option for the die hard luddite. .30-06 was always an American target round but you won't see that used much, even the .308 has been put on the back burner for most competitors other than Palma, the 5.56 is predominant in ATC as the AR15 dominates and most other disciplines allow any cartridge so the 6mm & 6.5mm rounds are widely used.

    F-Class 1000 yrd face size

    I'm not aware of any changes to the F class target but I understand the TR bull and V bull may have become smaller, not sure by how much though.
  6. Pengo, bear in mind that at 25 yards each click of a 1/4 MOA scope turret would move the point of aim 1/16 inch, subject to it's internal mechanical integrity, surely fine enough for any target.

    Neck bush size when using a Mandrel Expander

    You'll only know for sure when you measure your brass with a seated bullet, otherwise you're just guessing. Measure a dummy round and subtract 2 thou if using neck turned cases, if not turning necks I'd assemble three dummy rounds and take the average, then subtract two thou. Having said that I've used cartridges with 1, 2 & three thou tension at various times so IMHO and for my rifles, the exact tension wasn't that important, or at least not as important as say charge weight and bullet seating depth. Some people recommend buying two or three incremental sizes to experiment with anyway.

    General purpose target rifle.

    Clover, Just one correction is that .223 can be used in TR although it's generally only a few hard core individuals that use it and mostly at club level and regional comps, that allow handloads, the ammunition offered in most national events, being issued is not conducive to high scores!

    Rifle Basix trigger

    Pat, I have a RB L3 trigger which may not be the model you have but there are three adjustment screws on the front face of the trigger body. Top is weight of pull, clockwise increases this, middle is overtravel, clockwise reduces this, bottom is sear engagement, clockwise reduces this. I made some notes on the instruction manual that weight and overtravel require a 5/64 allen wrench and sear requires 1.5mm/.060". I'd recommend a mid strength thread lock if you're going to adjust these, but I found them relatively easy to set up and mine is very reliable, it's been on my 40X since 2003 or so and never malfunctioned, just clean it with lighter fluid every so often. Richard.

    Improved 284?

    I also have both and they are 35 degrees, the reamer prints also show that, it's the KMR that changes it to 40, not sure about the other wildcats based on that case.
  12. Dies now sold, Thanks for looking.

    HELP !! Screw rounded off

    See if you can smash a slightly oversize torx bit into what's left, clamp the base in a drill press and using downwards pressure on the handle use a suitable spanner to turn the bit .
