Re: Heavy Barrel or not? 59 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Heavy Barrel or not?

Sounds good Glen. Yes, just work through it step by step. Hi Bryan. The featherweights are OK but I have found two weaknesses which go hand in hand with the 600 yard Elk slayer thread and the Tikka comments. 1. Rifle shakes if you have been climbing, then have to drop and take a hurried 300 yard shot. 2. Recoil can be quite fearsome in .300 Win Mag. I would not want to shoot a 208gr bullet above 2600fps in this rifle. It would also take a good deal of practice. It can be done if the hunter reall..

Re: New Barrel Preparation Questions 59 months ago by Ben Grady Re: New Barrel Preparation Questions

Hi guys. Well my new barrel has arrived chambered in 25 06 rem. It is 26" stainless steel with a 9.5 twist. It has a heap or meat at the knox and tapers down to about 16mm at the muzzle. It is going to be a fairly heavy set up looking at the barrel on it's own. I have ordered a laminated stock from boyds as it is touch and go if there will be any wood left, next to the knox once the barrel is inletted being a heavier contour (with my exiting stock). I've decided to hold off threading for a suppr..

Re: Fast barrel? 59 months ago by Randal Graham Re: Fast barrel?

Jared, posted on the .35 thread, I'll put the lapping link here too... http://youtu.be/ml-9oLLKYsM Is the rifle shooting consistant groups? Even at 2"... Are they consistant groups or all over the place and vary from small groups to large randomly? Very very generally speaking, large but consistant groups are barrel finish related, very random all-over-the-place groups usually end up being throat/chamber issues or a bad crown. Also, if you shoot a long string, like 5 groups of 5 rounds, and the ..

Re: Fast barrel? 59 months ago by Randal Graham Re: Fast barrel?

Saw your post on another thread about fire lapping this barrel... Have you bore scoped this barrel yet Jared? I always hated chasing problems by throwing stuff at a gun waiting to see what might work, can go around in circles for a long time before issues get sorted out. I'd consider having a proper look at the bore first off to see where the barrel is at for sure. If it's tool chatter, crappy lap job, pits, burrs, crappy chamber cut or throat, you'll see it right away. Firelapping takes a lot o..

Re: Warming up to the .35's 59 months ago by Randal Graham Re: Warming up to the .35's

Hi Bob! Yes, saw your posts in the 9.3/.35 whelen thread, found them quite enlightening. Sounds like a beautiful rifle as well, always been quite fond of Sako rifles, I owned a Sako carbine for a short time and it was one of the nicest guns I've owned, but was not in a caliber I could easily load for...and an offer came along. How I ended up with the damn BLR actually, and an auto-5 to boot. Wow, 225 at 2600+ , that has gotta be a deer hammer. Hmm, that would hit pretty hard a fair ways out I'd ..

Re: Warming up to the .35's 59 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Warming up to the .35's

Hi Randal, I think to some extent this is a personal choice. To my way of thinking, a bolt action rifle is a simple and effective proposition. The bedding, trigger and bore can be worked on with ease. The ejection port can be cleared easily. The comb of the stock on a bolt action can be made to have better alignment. So on the one hand, while a lever can be faster to cycle, the bolt action will not recoil in the same manner and recovery from recoil is very fast. Such a rifle can be made both por..

Warming up to the .35's 59 months ago by Randal Graham Warming up to the .35's

Nathan suggested I have a look at the .35 whelen as a contender for my next hunting rifle, after looking at both the .35 whelen and .358 winchester in great detail I must say I am feeling the pull towards them. One stubling block is lack of rifles available in either. Although I'm not opposed to a build in any case. What I have come to is this; the Browning BLR is a rifle I have many many years of expirience with, and it is available in .358 winchester. In this caliber it has a 20 inch barrel on..

Re: rifle wont shoot less than 1 1/4 inch 59 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: rifle wont shoot less than 1 1/4 inch

Hi Jaspur, this may simply be a case of your COAL being wrong. You are cuurently set too long and concentricty will be very poor. Set COAL to 71mm, then rework up loads. See COAL article in the rifle accuracy section of this site for more info as to why your COAL was wrong at 1 thou jump in the .308. There should be another thread here somewhere close which covers the same info and also powder charges. Bedding may need addressing, plus other factors as described in my last book (Accurizing).

Re: Weatherby Vanguard 300WSM 59 months ago by Andrew Dobbin Re: Weatherby Vanguard 300WSM

Finally got time to post an update for those interested. I finished bedding about 2 weeks ago, came out real nice with just a couple of cosmetic cracks at the tang. I ended up putting a Timney trigger in because when I adjusted the factory trigger to 1.5lbs the trigger weight screw was only engaging about 1.5 threads, and this just didn't feel safe to me. Bonus that the Timney has a 3 position saftey opposed to the original 2 on the factory. [http://s40.photobucket.com/user/nakidobbo/media/phot..

Re: Open sights 59 months ago by Randal Graham Re: Open sights

Browsing through the forum and came across this thread, thought I'd jump in as iron sight hunting has been my passion since the beginning of my hunting some 36 years now. I have had glassed rifles, particularly for coyotes, but most often use iron. My first great setup was on a BLR in .30-06, front sight was the factory post with a hood added and what I came up with was a small platinum shotgun bead. On the rear the first really good one was a lyman #90 .22 target sight, it has finger adjustable..

Re: Tikka T3 build/bedding 60 months ago by Paul Horwath Re: Tikka T3 build/bedding

Here's what I've done to prepare the pillars and the recoil lug for bedding my Tikka T3 action thus far. I've screwed the pillars to the action using a tapered head screw. On the threads of the tapered screw, I wrapped the threads with electrical tape to a diameter that fit the inner ID of the aluminum pillars. The tapered head centers the pillar at the top, and the electrical tap centers the pillar where it mates to the face of the action. Then I placed a tall socket on the top of the pillar th..

The problem lies with the original tapered screws pulling into and possibly through the unsupported thin washers in the gua..

Re: Unburnt powder in the moderator 60 months ago by chris murphy Re: Unburnt powder in the moderator

Welcome GB it is simply that the barrel is to short for the amount of powder in the case to fully burn. Make sure he cleans it out regularly or he might end up with a pipe bomb threaded on his barrel

Good morning gentlemen. I have been following several threads on here with interest and a comment Nathan made above has prompted me to join up and - where possible - join in. In the comment above Nathan refers to a discussion about double set triggers, now as this is a small obsession of mine I would be very grateful if someone could point me to that discussion. Meanwhile I will be considering further some of the discussion surrounding stock bedding. My interests are vintage and out of productio..

Re: new brass 60 months ago by Ronald Le May Re: new brass

Just a quick one I have discovered that NORMA brass has a rim thicker than the Lapua brass I use in this case the rims are 140 thou. So you should adjust your NK, FLS and Seating dies for this fact. It seems a bit harder than the Lapua brass as well I am triming mine to 2.161 for a 3.1410 COAL with BERGER 140VLD in 6.5 x 284. One point often overlooked by some as not that important is the primer pocket and the internal of the flashole. Standard practice for me with new brass is to uniform the po..

for a stand get a rod with a thread on the bottom. then a piece or steel or aluminium and drill two holes in it. one the size of the rod and the other the size of the dti stem area. drill a little hole at 90 degrees to each of these screws and use them for set screws to hold everything together. http://www.sinclairintl.com/reloading-equipment/measuring-tools/concentricity-gauges/sinclair-concentricity-gauge-prod37479.aspx

Re: 25-06 Rem twist rate for 117gr projectiles 60 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: 25-06 Rem twist rate for 117gr projectiles

I think that's a really good idea Ben- 26", then cut down to 24" later if you don't like it. Having said the above, the suppressor might make this a bit of an issue. You would want some meat at 26" before thread cutting. Can be a lot easier at 24". So you need to decide on whether you really want to fit the suppressor or experiment with the longer barrel, or fit a barrel with a bit of heft to it (e.g. True-Flite #2 contour barrel, specifically contoured to suit M14 thread at 26"). Just bear in m..

Re: 25-06 Rem twist rate for 117gr projectiles 60 months ago by Ben Grady Re: 25-06 Rem twist rate for 117gr projectiles

Thanks Nathan, 10" may be the safer bet for a 25-06 Rem. What about barrel length? 24" or 26"? Get a 26" and cut down later if it is annoying. Will I get anything more from a 26" length than a 24" for this calibre. A lot of internet thread reading says 24" minimum but 26" is better as the 25-06 is overbore. I will probably get it threaded for a suppressor as I have a 25cal suppressor already on my .303-25. cheers Ben
