Re: New bullets 59 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? 59 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

Re: 358 x 55 Scrubber 60 months ago by Warwick Marflitt Re: 358 x 55 Scrubber

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 ??? 60 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 60 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 60 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 ?? 60 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..

hi chris i haven't bedded a tikka but i think Nathan means the top and rear of the lug that touches the action the rest of the lug that does not touch the action will be bedded in the action completely without relief? please wait for someone that has done a tikka to answer this, i believe martin taylor has done a few please read his thread http://www.ballisticstudies.com/Resources/Discussion+Forums/x_forum/17/thread/3925.html

hi randy. just having a read up on this thread what an interesting bit about the 150 interlocks anyway. two things springs to mind 1 did you change powder charge when you changed seating depths? your barrel harmonics will change so you'll need to workout your coal then do your load development from there. 2 what dies are you using? if your concentricity isn't good a bigger jump may cause problems

Re: Picking bullets for our needs 61 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Picking bullets for our needs

Hi Brendon, if you want to go softer, yes, you can try the V-Max. I can see other good advice in this thread from bullet suggestions to 4 litre engines. As I have written in the KB, velocity is an important factor when using a small bore. So the first step is to make sure that your loads are up to full speeds. The second aspect is as talked about- shot placement, especially as we lose velocity. The HP Gameking is a good bullet in its own right. Be sure to study the actual wounding before you com..

No, its me that has to apologize. As much as I like to try and nuture the info exchange on the site, I do have some aspects that I want to keep solely for customers and also, avoid any "why are you doing it that way" questions because only a part of the book info was relayed in a thread. I have some of the tipped 180gr VLD projectiles you made and sent me here, but have been shooting .338 exclusively of late. Am hoping to spend time over xmas with the Practical and give your modified projectiles..
