Re: TC Dimension rifle 90 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: TC Dimension rifle

Looks OK but I can't comment as I have not used the system first hand. Hopefully this is a good one,looks like a lot of thought was put into the design, lots of R&D. There have been a few switch barrel rifle designs over the years and sometimes there is a problem relative to how much play/slop there is between the barrel and action. This model has a tight collet with supplied torque wrench so it may be quite a step ahead. A secondary problem is that most switch barrel rifles cannot cope with hea..

Re: Rifle accurizing service 91 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Rifle accurizing service

Hi Guys, at the moment, exporting rifles is a bit difficult for me but this may change in the future. As True-Flite solidify channels through barrel exports, this/they will be able to provide options for me. It is great to have this company to work with. Branded rifles are a good idea. Its something I would have faith in myself, the rifles we have built in the past have shot well until the bores have worn out. But, I also need to make the site pay for itself eventually as others have pointed out..

Re: got my 300 win mag 91 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: got my 300 win mag

Hi Trevor, I had a look at the accuracy, it is very good, infact for an out of the box 2012 SPSS, it is exceptional. If this is consistent, it tells us that the bore (and action) is extremely good. You will be able to build on this, refining accuracy down below 1" and further down to hopefully you hit the sub .5" mark- if you want to achieve this. There are several ways to go on a limited budget. I could go on here for pages and pages. Instead, I will offer a few ideas. Utilize existing stock an..

Re: An SPS 7mm Rem Mag for long range mountain hunting 93 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: An SPS 7mm Rem Mag for long range mountain hunting

Hi Erich, thanks for your kind comments, I am slowly coming right. The difference between the XCR II and standard SPS is essentially a paint job. Apart from the coating, the barrels and actions are the same, the stocks are the same SPS stock except for the soft rubber panels. Personally, I prefer to steer clear of painted metal work as it can come to grief during bedding or rebarreling operations at which point, the entire finish needs to be removed. This is why I prefer the British army method ..

Re: copper fouling 95 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: copper fouling

Hi Tim, the front king screw should definitely not be bottoming out. This may well be the cause of your wide fliers. You have two choices, either grind 40 thou / 1mm of the king screw and re-chamfer it, or if you want to re-bed the rifle, you can use the fresh bedding to lift the action up a tad and create the clearance needed. To determine whether this may be beneficial, check the current bedding to see how well it is adhering to the stock. Typically, the Browning and Winchester bolt action rif..

Re: .223 95 months ago by tim Kollat Re: .223

Im just going to stick with 300 win mag. The 30-06 is my dads that he gave me a long time ago and I think Im going to fix it up nice and give it back. I know this thread started as a .223 thread, so Ill ask one more thing: Nathan, Ive read from many sources that the spin of the 55 grain fmj has no effect on yaw and does not stabilize it so much that it wont yaw and frag on impact. Your writings that the slower twists that just stabilize it enough in flight but yaw and fragment on impact sound mo..

Re: 270 Weatherby magnum - bullet choise 95 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: 270 Weatherby magnum - bullet choise

Hi Arve, thanks, glad you are enjoying the site. OK, regarding the 140 grain Accubond, it is a very violent, wide wounding projectile but can suffer at the extremes. When pushed at extremely high velocities and used at close ranges on heavy bodied deer, penetration can be poor and in many instances, excessive weight loss can be the result. On the other hand, as velocities fall below 2400fps, kills can be quite delayed. The 140 grain AB works very well in the .270's out to ordinary hunting ranges..

Re: scope mounts for browning x bolt 95 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: scope mounts for browning x bolt

Hi Tim, much depends on how far you want to shoot. If you want to shoot right out to 900 yards or so, then yes, a 20 MOA barrel can take take the pressure right off your scope. Generally, it is a good idea to put a canted base on a .308 for long range work. Just bare in mind, every once in a while, the 20MOA bases can cause the scope elevation to bottom out. This is usually caused by minor discrepancies in surface finishing of the the receivers from rifle to rifle. In such instances, the front o..

Re: Win 70 Extreme Weather 96 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Win 70 Extreme Weather

Hi Richard, the addition of a B&C stock is a great upgrade for the M70. The plastic stocks Winchester used prior to this were possibly the worst on the market, as was the method of hot glue gun bedding which would fall apart after a period of use. I have not handled this latest model M70 so some of what I will say is speculative. For a start, I have no first hand experience with the new M70 trigger, its adjustment range or rifle to rifle consistency. I can only hope that it has the full adjustme..

Re: To Pillar bed or full length bed a rifle? 96 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: To Pillar bed or full length bed a rifle?

Hi Ryan, the short answer, is to utilize both full length and pillar bedding. Regarding pillar bedding, pillars are best utilized where there is a risk of stock compression over time. This is most apparent on on wood stocked rifles because the wood fibres can become crushed, resulting in a split stock. This occurs especially on older rifles where oils have continually run into the wood fibres but in contrast can also occur with dry, brittle stocks. In my own processes, I pillar bed wood stocked ..

Re: Actions 101 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Actions

Hi Murray, yes, you are reading that right. However for the smith, its more a case of "I don't want to go down that road". The M700 is the easiest action for smiths to work with, both for machining and bedding. By easy, I don't mean this as a reflection of time factors or the skill levels of the smith, however skill levels are relative if the shop is employing apprentices. By easy, I mean that the receiver threads are usually cut in such a way that the factory barrels can be removed without the ..

Re: Good starting platform?? 103 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Good starting platform??

Hi Jonathan. Of the rifles you have mentioned, the T3 and Rem SSPS are both good light weight rifles for the Alps. It really is up to you, which features you find the most desirable. As for the .270Win cartridge, most readily available factory loads in NZ feature a 130 grain bullet, many are very good. If you want to step things up further, for Thar and reds, a hand loaded 150 grain bullet is very emphatic for both close range and longer range work. Many people are currently facing tough financi..

Re: 243 Win/ 95 Berger Test 103 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: 243 Win/ 95 Berger Test

Hi Jim, OK there are quite a few possibilities. I would like more info so if you can bare with me, we’ll get started. Regarding the bore: Have you tested other bullets in the Savage, if so, did they also produce fliers. If you have tested other bullets and accuracy was good, were the bullets flat based or with a vastly greater bearing area. How was the fouling, is there a complete lack of fouling when you look into the muzzle. When you look into the muzzle from 30-45 degrees, can you see circula..
