Re: Load Development (help me please) 45 months ago by Ben Grady Re: Load Development (help me please)

Hi Guys Just an update, if anyone was slightly interested in this thread. 25-06 Rem on a P17 (M17) Action. My load development stopped as I had a elbow operation but now I a am ready to go. Just to re-cap. I had a new heavy Bradley Barrel fitted. Original groups were bad 11/2 -2+". I docked 15mm off the end of my barrel because Chris Murphy saw tooling marks right at the muzzle. Straight away groups dropped and the Federal 117gr factory ammo was 4 shots touching and fowl shot not far away. My ho..

Hi Paul, there is a thread running in the long range section. I will delete this thread shortly so we don't get posts spread too thin. I'll start game testing these after xmas when we have stocks here in NZ.

Reloading assistance 46 months ago by Greg Whorlow Reloading assistance

Hello, I was planning to write a nice piece on my journey through using Nathans books, however, I have come up against a problem that needs immediate assistance. I have read a number of reloading books, including Nathans of course, I have accumulated a lot of gear and finally found myself is a position to start reloading. I have a Lee Breach Lock press, Lee Ultimate Die set, ADI AR 2209 powder, [email protected] primers, 150 g Nosler Partitions, the list goes on. I am loading 270 Winchester (yes Nathan I was ..

Youth rifle training 46 months ago by Nathan Foster Youth rifle training

Hi guys, I just want to run through training with Riley. I do not want to hash out hard won material from my book in this thread so will keep my points short as I try to get all of todays thoughts relayed. You can refer to the Shooting book and kin for more info. My sole intention here is to get you thinking about approaches. This week I wanted to get Riley shooting centerfire. I opted for the .308 as it is such a good training rig and I can slowly build up power. Riley is 9 years old and of a l..

Re: New bullets 46 months ago by David Gausepohl Re: New bullets

Quote:ELD/ELD-X Has anyone tested the new Hornady ELD or ELD-X (match) bullets? They rate them with a higher B.C. because the tip doesn't deform due to in-flight heat. I've inquired of Hornady if the construction is the same as the current A-Max but have not had a reply yet. Sorry, I see the other thread on this. I misquoted the Hornady info, the X version being the hunting bullet and the match version IS the A-Max with the new tip. I'll let you know about anything new I hear from Hornady. David..

Re: Montana Rifles? 46 months ago by Bob Mavin Re: Montana Rifles?

Hi guys. just check!!! I remember my gunsmith telling me not to buy???? can't remember if it was the later Montana or not but he said the barrel wasn't threaded to the action instead it was shrunk or sweated together? I was told the Mauser 12 isn't threaded either. Bob

Thomas I have a few 303s in the gun safe ;D won't reloading dies be the issue.? I do like the idea. Your thread was the seed in my mind that I let germinate $#@! Let me mull some more over the pros not cons? That Scope would look lovely on a 12 gauge rifled slug of some sort? Stop day dreaming Thomas and concentrate on the course lol thanks mate.

So where are the 270 projectiles ??? 47 months ago by Chris Bayley So where are the 270 projectiles ???

With respect to the Hornady ELD thread and my previous observation that Hornady don't do the much vaunted A-MAX in 270 I am left wondering why ? Is the 270 a bit of an "L&P" calibre ? ie. world famous in New Zealand only ? I accept that 30cal and 7mm would be the most popular here but I thought 270 would edge out 6.5mm but perhaps sales lag those of the 6.5 internationally ?? So then: best long range performer for 270 ? (I'm currently loading SSTs) Cheers, Chris

Re: Tikka T3 Pillar question 47 months ago by Chris Bayley Re: Tikka T3 Pillar question

My lug was basically corroded in place and appeared ready to resist all pulling attempts: [http://s292.photobucket.com/user/ChrisBayleyNZ/media/DEBD5783-6558-4965-B7F1-5F5D50A1C9B5_zpszvfe5sdb.jpg.html] I sprayed on some WD40 and left the stock in the light sun to warm/expand and let the WD40 work in. After a couple of hours and a single tug with some pipe grips it came away first time. It's looking a bit beaten up tho: [http://s292.photobucket.com/user/ChrisBayleyNZ/media/C6B7CC37-4926-46AC-8..

Re: Hornady new 47 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Hornady new "big thing" announcement...

Nate, Nath or Nathan, its all the same. I post as Kiwi Nate when helping on longrangehunting.com. Have posted bugger all these last couple of years but still get PM's regarding the 80 page 7mm-300 thread. I agree with what you are saying. Mike Neeson on the other thread has just learned a new saying regarding current marketing. The 175gr bullet will hopefully go well at around 3150fps in the 7mm Practical. The 9 twist will be ideal at these speeds without ripping things up. The BC of .660 should..

Re: Where to next ?? 47 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Where to next ??

Hmm, a tough call because soft loads won't allow you to really practice with the rifle as would be in the field when hunting with full power loads. This could in turn lead to misses or wounds. But the soft loads will allow you to get used to the rifle. This final animal of a book should help you with recoil issues. I would rather you read this bore making any rifle alterations. If only the barrels were just a touch thicker, it would make fitting an M14 thread viable and make for a much different..

hi Trevor i suggest you look at all the different stocks you may want and check which models they are available in. the remington stocks seem to be of reasonable shape so you may want to look at stabilizing and bedding also. most rifles are covered in Nathans book, check out this link once again martin has done a very helpful thread for everyone to have a look at http://www.ballisticstudies.com/Resources/Discussion+Forums/x_forum/17/thread/6584.html

Quote:You use one layer of tape on top and one layer on the rear then put thin smear of glue on tape and set into action trim off tape that can be seen sticking out from action. This is lowered into compound like that and when broken out the lug is left in the stock. Hope this makes sense Yes I believe I see it now after having a look at the other thread. I read the instructions as relieving the entire back of the lug which made no sense to me but relieving the rear interface with the action doe..
