  1. Yes in hindsight I could just use a Mlok flushcup but I've come to like the balance the rifle has with the two weights Dave re the chassis. The baricade stock at the front of the mag well is fully rounded, is that on purpose? The acc has rounded corners but a flat centre section and I find that useful. Also is the hand grip adjustable for and aft, again I find that really helpful for getting a good trigger finger position. Also I obviously haven't tried the chassis but it looks like the slope for the thumb rest could be moved forward a little to better align with a thumb up position. All meant as constructive observation, not criticism, hope it helps. Personally I don't like the slope at the front of the fore end but that's just my opinion, doubt it will impact on the stocks function. Best of luck to whoever is making them, good to see uk companies investing the time and resource.
  2. Its already been said that the morning stages were slow but judging by how much progress the range has made since I last visited for the last comp earlier in the year I'm sure that will be addressed. I think the stages were all very good, a good balance between difficulty and being de moralisedđŸ˜‚ and yes the apex roof was my downfall, well that and stage 6 where a couldn't quite twist my old body comfortably enough for a steadylefthand shot. I would also say the blinktroll target is probably the best stage/target i think I've ever shot. And the addition of the electronic target for your last shot on one stage was a clever and inventive use of technology to provide a winner of a prize - well done Paul on your shot. Thanks for a good event.

    So has anyone tried it in a 6.5 Creedmoor? Is it a barrel burner and what were the velocities like? I usually use RS62/140eldms, just wondering if there's a gain with N555.

    New Defender

    I doubt its aimed at anyone intending to do real work with it, the jap pickups have that market cornered anyhow. More aimed towards the chelsea set now. Having said that I recently followed one around a Land Rover experience day and it did seem very capable but as previously said they are all too complicated to fix when in the real outback. As for the previous defenders, I don't see the attraction, god awful things to ride any distance in.
  6. Dave is there a recessed hole for a QD sling in the fore end? Pet hate on my acc is having to fit a weight to gain a sling mount. Just a suggestion but it would look a lot better with the stock cap screw recessed.
  7. Ronins 260ai is impressive. By way of real workd comparison to a creedmoor shooting 140eldms at 2850fps it has .5mil less elevation and .4mil less windage for a full value 10mph wind at 700mtrs.

    Send it Series 2020

    The competition was a well run and more importantly a safe event. The weather was poor first thing so the start was a little delayed with light drizzle for the morning giving way to better weather in the afternoon. The venue is impressive and its obvious there's been a serious amount of hard work and forethought put into the range. The competition was shot over 8 stages with RCO, spotter and marker for each stage with the RCO giving targetry, time limit and safety brief on each stage with a clear Hit or Miss given on each shot - well done to those individuals, it makes a huge difference to the shooters. The targets were robust and each with a good backstop that was 'dumb' when damp but gave good feedback once they started to dry out. All the distances were sensible with the shorter range targets used for the more difficult multi positional stages, my particular favourite being an UKD stage consisting of three targets spaced around a hillside - a very well thought out stage. The image below shows the range with targetry out to 2000mtr. The berm on the far left is the 1000yd F class target and there is also a moving target in the centre of the range just to the left of the access road.

    Bullet Jump

    But then surely if a bullet was jammed it would create higher chamber pressure and hence a different barrel time. Surely there must be a corelation somewhere. And how are the factory loads explained such as gold medal match that seams to shoot in any reasonable 308?

    Bullet Jump

    All very interesting. With regard to chasing the lands once a precise load is found I also tend not to revisit my loads until the barrel is what I expect to be half way through it's useable lifespan and then if necessary retune the load. Which makes me wonder about all the jump to the lands etc, is it that dimension that really makes the difference or are we actually adjusting chamber pressure and or optimal barrel time?

    Left hand/S&S pmll

    No it won't in my experience. I run PMII's on several left handed bolt rifles including a custom Remmy clone action. You should be fine.

    AMP DIY Alternatives - Induction Annealing

    Here's my set up. I made a simple stand from some stainless steel tube with an aluminium table. The table has a very simple trap door, slide the lever to the right and the annealer case drops into the hi tech resepticle below... 6.5x47 cases takes 2.1 seconds. I ordered the water cooler for the coil, the foot switch and the adjustable height scissor lift from fluxeon at the same time. I had planned to fully automate it but it's so simple and quick to use I'm not sure I will.
