Re: Remington bankruptcy 5 days ago by Paul Leverman Re: Remington bankruptcy

Interesting link there, Scott. Lots of good and not so good info. The usual mixture, and then the usual animosity common to internet threads. Two posts caught my attention: the modified stock pictures and the formula. Looking at the stock mods, the size, shape, and location of that "anti-torque lever" gives me the idea that torque cannot be a major factor, unless using a free recoil shooting technique. That stock extension, in my opinion only, could easily be replaced by a firm grip (Hold that f..

Re: Remington bankruptcy 6 days ago by Scott Struif Re: Remington bankruptcy

Which is probably why Nathan recommends front/rear bedding for amateurs with flat-bottom receivers. When I was researching torque, I ran across an article that said bedding the first couple inches of the barrel ahead of the receiver actually came about because Mauser and its clones located the front receiver screw in the recoil lug. Torquing that action screw caused the action to be bent downward, ahead of the bolt lug recesses, resulting in uneven contact of the bolt lugs. So Winchester relocat..

Re: Remington bankruptcy 7 days ago by Scott Struif Re: Remington bankruptcy

Hi, Paul. I found a forum thread where a guy who shoots 45-70 535 grain says his gun torques to the shooterís left as much as 45 degrees. I assume itís a RH twist. (3rd post from the top.) http://forum.accurateshooter.com/threads/rifle-torque.3965858/page-1

Re: Remington bankruptcy 7 days ago by Paul Leverman Re: Remington bankruptcy

Another reason why round receivers are popular: machining multiple recesses and surfaces true to each other. Once the work piece is chucked, any machining will be relevant to the centre/bore line, resulting in true to centre threads, lug recesses, shoulders; thereby enhancing potential accuracy. But having said all that, with the new CNC processes, all this may not be applicable any longer.

Re: Fiocchi Extrema 17 days ago by BH Re: Fiocchi Extrema

This thread is aging a little but I have just become aware of Fiocchi's Extrema ammunition using Hornady's SST projectile, and Googling around has brought me all the way back to an old favourite website. Talking specifically .270, I used Hornady's 140grain BT Interlock bullets years ago to good effect - and my experience aligns with what I've read on TBR - very accurate, great BC, and with careful placement they're fast killers - but no end for end shots on deer with them! Lately I've decided I ..

Re: 195gr TMK performance and minimum expansion threshold 20 days ago by Ian Re: 195gr TMK performance and minimum expansion threshold

This thread is of particular interest to me. On my to do list of projects is building a 195TMK load for my 308, specifically intended for longer range cross gully shots at sambar. Previous work with the 175TMK in this rifle gives me hope that I will see 2500, maybe 2550fps from the 195 which should keep impact velocity above the 1800 fps wall out to at least 500, hopefully 600 yards - more than far enough for my purposes. I will try to dual load this with a closer range load using the 165 Swift ..

Re: RIfle Slings 1 month ago by Frank Vallich Re: RIfle Slings

To conclude this thread the following observations. The RS3 sling provides a secure cross body carry allowing freedom of movement. Both arms are available for deployment for whatever task is at hand. An example is having the rifle available while walking with a 20 gauge while shooting grouse. THe BEST feature is the ability to drop to one knee and have stability. No need to insert the support arm through a loop as the sling rides up under the left arm and secures the the rifle into the firing po..

Re: .25/06 loads 1 month ago by Nathan Foster Re: .25/06 loads

One more thing Mike, being a very old rifle, chances are that the throat is getting somewhat worn now. best to give it a quick birthday (polish) before going further ahead. Once the throats become worn, it can pay to use a projectile with a longer bearing surface. In a worn tang safety model with 24" barrel, properly bedded, lugs in full contact, mag box floated, a 100 grain BTSP may hit its sweet spot at velocities of around 3300fps or higher (especially with Superformance powder). It pays to w..

Re: Inquiry re: Copper Fouling with the SST 1 month ago by Nathan Foster Re: Inquiry re: Copper Fouling with the SST

Hi David, just a couple of important points to go over first. Never shoot 10 shot groups with this rifle, that is to say, do not let this barrel get hot. If you want to put 10 shots on a target, try to keep the rifle at ambient temps all the way through (up to an hour or more). If you want to test to see how the rifle holds its zero under pressure (for follow up shots on game), perform this session once, after developing your optimum load. Do not use scotchbrite on this particular chamber. This ..

Will do! I shot yesterday and had 31 rounds through the bore without cleaning the copper. My groups for the first 31 rounds were better than yesterday's.

Re: RIfle Slings 3 months ago by Mike Heyl Re: RIfle Slings

Scott - I too read the book and was initially a bit confused. I posted a link in this thread a month ago about the Latigo sling. When I went back and watched the video link in that post - combined it with the pictures in the book it made more sense to me. As near as I can tell both designs are very similar in the loop design/loop keepers.

Hey Bob, i asked this question in another thread, but it is probably more relevant here. How do you find the 168 eld-m performs out of the 30-06 at close ranges? I'm tossing up between a 30-06 and a 308 as my next rifle and by reading through the forum, i've noticed that you use both. I'll mostly be targeting Fallow, Reds and Pigs at close ranges in dense forrest, but also stretching out at longer ranges for Roos and general target work on open farm land. The 308 seems pretty perfect, but i'm wo..

Sorry for all the comments. I should have entitled this thread, "My scope blog." The other issue I've got is, with a 90 degree bolt throw and extra-low rings, eyepiece size is a major issues.

Chris Murphy, if you happen across this thread... Scott is a fan of Leupold. Would you be so kind as to post the model of Leupold you are using.
