Re: Howa Bedding 3 days ago by Scott Struif Re: Howa Bedding

Hi, Marty. You cautioned Brandon earlier to be mindful of stock-material compression, even with laminate, which sounded like good advice to me. Pillars would, of course, preclude that problem. I donít use blue Loctite on action screws, but it would certainly prevent the screws moving any. I havenít seen it discussed, relative to action screws, but, in automotive applications, torque-specs are generally given for dry threads, as lubricant on the threads will change the forces being applied, and w..

Gratuitous suggestion 4 days ago by Scott Struif Gratuitous suggestion

Nathanís recent email to members contained a link to his new Vimeo feed, where he answers random questions posted on this forum, via video responses. I learned about this new feature before todayís email, because he posted a link to it in a forum thread Iíve been following. Iíve been watching some of the videos, and picking up tidbits of info that, if I poured over the books, are probably there. Still, itís worth hearing live. I realized that much of what I had read, and thought I absorbed, was ..

Re: Howa Bedding 6 days ago by Brandon Warner Re: Howa Bedding

I finished the bedding job last weekend on the Howa. I have a question about mag box clearance. With the new stock, when I originally fit everything, I noticed it was pinching the box and the rear screw came up a couple threads higher then it did in the Hogue. This caused the rear action bolt to interfere with the bLot when cycling. I addressed this by removing 1/8Ē off the rear action bolt and the same off the box. Holding the rifle at one oíclock and loosening the front action screw the front ..

Re: Am I the Guy Looking the Gift Horse in the Mouth? 24 days ago by Joshua Mayfield Re: Am I the Guy Looking the Gift Horse in the Mouth?

Reporting back on an old topic: My friends' course was postponed due to weather and the pandemic but we did it yesterday. Weather was picture perfect. Prior to the earlier postponements and after the discussion on this thread I did talk with my friend and he was clear that the round count would be considerably lower than 200 in a best-case scenario. It seemed that he wanted to give a high number to ensure no one showed up short, which I can understand as he is designing this course to be offered..

Re: Setting up a older Remington trigger 29 days ago by Scott Struif Re: Setting up a older Remington trigger

Hi David. Most manufacturers nowadays use locknuts to secure trigger screw adjustments, then put a dab of glue on the locknuts to hold them in place, in the unlikely event they wander loose. Nail polish is recommended for home gunsmiths for that purpose. In your case, there are likely no locknuts. If you use blue Loctite on threads, you have to clean it and any oils that may have seeped into the threads, before reapplying it.. That could be difficult. Iíd adjust the screws to where you think wan..

Reloading...270 Winchester 1 month ago by Daniel Schindler Reloading...270 Winchester

Greetings. I am seeking your experienced opinions here. I already know that some (many?) of you have more reloading experience than I do and why I am posting. FWIW, Iím not a reloading newbie in spite of the fact that I was an English majorÖas was Mr. OíConnor in my defense. From .375 H&H all the way down to 6mm, Iíve successfully loaded MOA loads with the reasonably frequent 1 hole 3 shot group @ 100 yds. Maybe my handloading skills could be fairly described as intermediate with my triple check..

Re: Illuminated FFP 1 month ago by Nathan Foster Re: Illuminated FFP

Hi Scott, yes thats the trouble. When speaking to the head sheds at Sightron, they stated that the only way to really get FFP to work in low light at the current reticle thickness, is to use illumination. Their concern is that if they make the reticles thicker, customers will complain. My concern is that the customer is not always right and that illumination is just one more thing to go wrong. Its nice to have it as an extra option, not the only option. The following is an edited cut and paste f..

It seems that Andy's "Have a Laugh" thread is locked up --- too much mirth. If some Webmaster can unlock it, then we could keep all this absolutely priceless and intelligent humor together.

Re: 200gr Muzzle velocity 1 month ago by Nathan Foster Re: 200gr Muzzle velocity

Ha, fun to stir... OK, at .177 height, 100 yard zero, 3035, Alt 1900ft, Sierra says 8.2 while shooter says 8.3. Either way its dial up 8 MOA plus one click for 550 yards. So basically this is merely adding confusion to matters. At 12 inches of extra height at 550 yards, you have somehow gained just over 2 MOA or two extra inches height at 100 yards. So what we are looking for is something dramatic, a major change in POI. I am really sorry Matt but you may have to pull the target back to 100 and ..

Re: Long Range Considerations 2 months ago by Scott Struif Re: Long Range Considerations

When I discovered this website a year and a half ago, I realized how ignorant I was about terminal ballistics. That you can hit an 8Ē gong at a given distance doesnít mean you can make an ethical shot. I had assumed my 30-06 was deadly as far as I could accurately place the shot. My personal best was a 450-yard shot on a pronghorn with a 150-grain cup-&-core at a pedestrian MV. I recovered the unexpanded bullet from the heart. (Nathan explained to me in another thread why that happened . . . low..

Re: People Complaining About Recoil 2 months ago by Ben Law Re: People Complaining About Recoil

tons of 223's - 308's come with brake's or threaded muzzle these days, which kinda sucks, i don't trust threaded muzzles for long term accuracy particularly when they are much smaller than the barrel diameter.

Re: Head shot 2 months ago by Joshua Mayfield Re: Head shot

In late 2017 and early 2018 we had a thread going titled "Neck Shots on Medium Game with Frangible Bullets." I think there was some overlap with this discussion. In that thread I explained my parameters for taking certain shots. I re-read them this morning. They still sound theoretically okay. I mentioned the stomach-sick feeling of taking a bad shot and wounding a deer in passing, but it was definitely a past tense mention. In fall of 2018 I got cocky and careless, feeling good about having snu..

Re: Speer projectiles? 3 months ago by Simon Crowther Re: Speer projectiles?

Thanks for that Nathan. Actually I've posted this thread in the wrong place, I'm not after long range precision ammo, just decent hunting ammo. I am very fussy though, I can't stand the thought of maiming an animal. My normal ammo with either Sierra Pro-Hunters or Hornady SSTs is shooting great. I suppose I've always been very lucky with reloading and so far have always managed to load very accurate ammo, this is the first challenge that I've had. I'll have a rest from reloading while I have a t..

Re: Remington bankruptcy 3 months 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 3 months 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 3 months 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 3 months 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.

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!

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 ..
