    Redding body die

    Let me check, I may have one
  4. Thanks for all your helpful comments and suggestions folks. I've got a stash of CCI-BR2 primers and some H4831SC, so that will be my starting combo. Thanks
  5. OK folks, some advice needed..... Best Primers for a Straight 284Win using H4831SC, what are people using, standard or magnum? Also any preferred brands, I have CCI BR-2, Fedral Magnum or Standard at my disposal. Many thanks in advance Bruce
  6. Hi All Given that H4831SC is not available anymore, I need some pointers on powder for a 284Win....... 30 inch barrel, good custom action etc etc 180gr Berger VLD's will be the bullet of choice... Options are N165 or N560, what's people's thoughts....... Quickload says I will get more speed and less pressure with the N560, I know that 5 series powders may eat barrels, but that aside what are people's real world experiences of either powder? Thanks Bruce

  8. Hi David No problem at all, I will be lodging the rifle at Fox firearms on Saturday, so no issue there. I can let Brian know that you will be having it if you want. Cheers Bruce

    Cheap alternatives

    Les, I'm guessing that you then use the Bold 3 in 1 pods to wash the patches so you can reuse them...... How many "firings" do you get from each patch?
  11. UKBRA are holding a 100 yard Benchrest weekend on the 30th and 31st March.... - Venue is Diggle Ranges Saturday will be a taster day, we will have some Benchrest Rifles for people to have a go with, but feel free to bring your own also. Sunday will be a competition, with classes for Benchrest Rifles and also Unlimited, where anything goes as such. - 50 rounds of ammo will give you enough for the comp and sighters Would anyone be interested in either day?
  12. Bradders, that is possibly because people "incorrectly" portray shooting disciplines of which they know very little about as being X, Y & Z, quite often these portrayals are less than favourable. That in itself makes it very hard to attract new blood to any discipline, before you even go to the expense of organising matches, training sessions, taster days etc ect.... We are all shooters after all and maybe, just maybe we should be trying to help the sport of shooting "Wholesale", rather than just trying to score cheap points against sections of our own community........ Yes, I'm a benchrest shooter, I make no bones about that, but the amount of complete and utter twoddle I hear talked about the discipline is just ridiculous and yes it sure is harder to convince someone to give it a go, when they have had their head filled full of rubbish in advance of ever trying it. So I speak from some experience.
