October Update

Written by Nathan Foster on October 11th, 2012.      1 comments

Hi everyone, hope you are all doing well.

Just a note to say that I will no longer be running the bedding compound contests. Many of our photo donators were non gunsmithing hobbyists so I have brought the monthly draw to a close. I may start a fresh contest in the future, will keep you all informed about that.

Please keep your photo's coming in, I greatly appreciate the input and a chance to meet you all.

I guess you will be wondering what I have been up to.  For the last few months I have been flat out tricking up rifles for clients.  I have some testing to do for NZ Outdoor Magazine involving the new .375" 350gr Matchking (BC.805) and 7mm 140gr HPBT Gameking bullets.  I am currently running the 350 grainer at around 2690fps out of my .375 RUM, though the projectile is realistically designed for the .375 Snipe Tac. 

I have also been very busy writing for the website and will soon introduce a new ebook as part of an ebook series.  The first ebook of this series deals with understanding the fundamentals of the long range rifle.  It serves as a platform to help those new to long range shooting understand the long range rifle. In essence, it covers the questions I receive by email on a daily basis; Which rifle should I buy, factory versus custom, Why X action is better than Y action, what type of barrel should I buy. Within the pages, I will share my experience with you which is much more useful than opinion. A how to guide, a buyer beware, a basic course in rifle engineering principles for beginners and experienced shooters alike. 

My plan is to alternate between uploading my cartridge research and ebook writing.  So hopefully you will see an ebook, then a fresh cartridge on the Knowledge base, then an ebook and so forth.

All the best.
