Information/Tips wanted on using a chronograph. 46 months ago by Ben Grady Information/Tips wanted on using a chronograph.

Hi Guys Here is a reply I posted on my P17 Project 25 06 thread. I am new to chronys so any tips/advice on their usage would be appreciated. Mine is the Blue, "Beta Master Chrony". I set it up with the screen cord at full stretch, say 4-5m away with the sun shields. The chrony was sitting on the ground and I was testing a suppressor so muzzle blast probably wasn't an issue. It was a hot, sunny day, with a tail wind. I was shooting prone off the bi-pod with a back rest. Below is the reply to Bob ..

Re: Are the 700 clones universal? 46 months ago by Paul Leverman Re: Are the 700 clones universal?

Thanks, Cor. That's good info, and I appreciate your input. It's kind of what I figured was happening. I think what it boils down to is why try to re-invent the wheel. Remington did a good job,as well as the others, so is it worth it to start over? Someone, somewhere will come up with an alternative, and that's ok, because we don't want to become stagnant. Warwick, I am very familiar with Barnard. I have a PL. It is truly a work of art. I am, however, in the same boat as yourself regarding the e..

Re: .243 win. and Partitions for Whitetail Deer 46 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: .243 win. and Partitions for Whitetail Deer

As long as the deer are not too heavy, this bullet performs very well. What you have to understand is that this bullet does have to work hard after impact to stay together. Hornady utilized a flat base as well as their Interlock swage and external cannelure swage and these features do allow the bullet to penetrate to vitals on mid sized deer. Quite often you can see that the 95gr SST has only just held together or fallen completely apart after reaching and passing through vitals. Wounding does t..

Re: full length sizing issue :( 46 months ago by G Dog Re: full length sizing issue :(

Yeah I think so Bob. My normal method is very similar to yours as well. I found that in new brass to once fired in my 7x57 there was almost 100fps velocity loss. I thought I was seeing things, but I wasn't. So, yes I recheck after all the new brass has been fired. I'm very much a hunter, I'll shoot paper once the body gives out, hopefully another 30 plus years left :) I'll updare the thread once im sorted. Its my first .280ai so its all new and exciting too. I'll be intrigued to see if I can tam..

Brno ZKK 600 update 46 months ago by Mike Dewey Brno ZKK 600 update

Been a lot of load development since my last update. I check the stores often when in town and have a fair selection of powder now: IMR 3031, 4895, 4064 plus H4350 and Win 748 for the 9.3x62. Short barrel (20”) so have to push things to get any speed. With 286 gr Nosler Partitions can reach or exceed 2400 fps with any of them without pressure signs except for the Win 748 which showed tight bolt randomly at all loadings from medium to high. The original stock is European style with a short, slend..

Re: New 358 barrels 46 months ago by Thomas Kitchen Re: New 358 barrels

hi jason. being a wildcat the reamer had to be custom as i don't believe gunsmith would have one. me and Nathan discussed few options to try and avoid needing to get custom reamer, but in the end it just seemed like the best option. not to sure if gunsmiths have a good deal going with reamers makers but at a guess if i paid for the gunsmith to organize it plus the mark up i would be no better off. not sure if with one off jobs gunsmiths charge full price for reamer and client gets reamer or not?..

P17 Project, 25-06 Rem 47 months ago by Ben Grady P17 Project, 25-06 Rem

Hi Guys. I going to ditch the last thread on "re-loading help needed" and start this new one. 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..

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.

Youth rifle training 47 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 47 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..

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 ??? 48 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

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..

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..
