Re: MRAD with yards 7 months ago by Warwick Marflitt Re: MRAD with yards

Schools of fish. For sure. And old imperial cows with gallons of milk [https://postimg.cc/XGNjRVtq] Then we have the new metric ones that will have litres of milk.

Re: .17 HMR and Bore/Throat Polishing 7 months ago by Ryan Nafe Re: .17 HMR and Bore/Throat Polishing

Guys, this thread I found the other day is why I think itís probably a very good idea to bed it, pay special attention to the first two pictures: https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=489777&=1 ó- The .17 Mach 2 is actually something Iíd be very interested in using, there are around one hundred boxes of 50 on a local store shelf. The main problem is that I have yet to find a rifle in that cartridge. Probably one reason the ammo is sort of stockpiled there, virtually nobody lo..

Re: .17 HMR and Bore/Throat Polishing 7 months ago by JOHN HAYS Re: .17 HMR and Bore/Throat Polishing

Interesting thread. I bought a .17 WSM for an upcoming moose-hunting trip. I havenít had time to shoot it yet, but it is supposed to be a very high velocity round for a rimfire. ďThe Savage Arms B.Mag Target rifle is chambered in 17 Winchester Super Magnum with a 8+1 capacity. It has an 22" stainless steel barrel and gray laminated thumbhole stock. The receiver and barrel have a stainless finish.Ē I understand that this can be an accurate rifle if properly bedded.

Re: Used Remington SPSís 8 months ago by Ryan Nafe Re: Used Remington SPSís

Bryan, itís not an actual discussion if the would-be participants arenít talking about the same things. When one person is talking about idea ďxĒ and the other is talking about idea ďyĒ, thereís not actually a dialogue going on. Itís just two people talking about entirely different things in the same thread. This is why itís so important to make sure both parties understand what itís in question, otherwise no progress is made. Youíd end up using time and effort without actually getting anywhere...

Re: 338 Federal specific 200 Woodleigh? 8 months ago by Paul Yates Re: 338 Federal specific 200 Woodleigh?

Regarding the original question. There's an Aussie in this thread who uses the 200 Woodleigh as his go-to projectile in 338 Fed for everything from fallow deer to sambar with consistently great results. https://www.24hourcampfire.com/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/topics/3634927/19 Some excellent load data and discussion in that thread as well. One of the best cartridge-specific discussions on the net, IMO.

Re: 338 Federal specific 200 Woodleigh? 8 months ago by Paul Yates Re: 338 Federal specific 200 Woodleigh?

I know this is an old thread, but I just can't help myself from posting because it seems to me the 338 Federal is being under-rated. Probably for good reason, because it seems the info is based on fairly old data, such as "Upper average velocities for the .338 Federal in a 22Ē barreled sporter include 2850fps with 160 grain bullets, 2650fps with 180 grain bullets, 2450fps with 200 grain bullets, 2400fps with 210 grain bullets, 2350fps with 225 grain bullets and 2250fps with 250 grain bullets."

Re: New Schultz and Larsen Rifles 8 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: New Schultz and Larsen Rifles

I am of two minds. There are many good rifles like Grahams, and then there are the duds. One of which pissed me right off because the rifle was dumped on my bench with its design flaws (see Thomas's post) which can become problematic. I helped the guy through it, then he did an article in a gun rag about how great the rifle was. Total bullshit and it really put me off the design and also gun rags. Then another came in, the front action screw was too short, poor guy cross threaded and stuffed the..

Re: Gas Nitride as a Rifle Finish 9 months ago by Ryan Nafe Re: Gas Nitride as a Rifle Finish

That was an interesting thread, Warwick, thanks. The process used on the parts in that thread is a salt bath one, and looks like a QPQ sequence as well. The QPQ (quench, polish, quench) is what gives that black finish to it. The single-phase gas process Iíll potentially use (meaning itís just one phase, the part is put in the tank and then removed, very very basic) will give a finish that looks very similar to satin aluminum, or passivated stainless steel. Sort of like a silvery-white satin colo..

Re: Need Loading Help 9 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Need Loading Help

Ok, some useful info in that reply. Yes, brake off please. Especially this design. Test the rifle without the brake. If it shoots well, I want you to go find someone who can dock and clean up the muzzle afterwards to prevent muzzle swelling issues later on. For now, clean the barrel again, get it back to bare steel with solvent, spiral the chamber, using a bronze brush and harsh solvent, soak, scrub, soak, scrub then clean it all out and get the bore dry and ready for shooting. Fire about 4 foul..

Re: .270wsm build questions 9 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: .270wsm build questions

Just one more thing I wanted to mention here, may help a bit James. Lane mentioned the DRT bullet. Like I said, lots of good helpful posts in this thread and this was one of them. You could put the DRT to work if you want to. The key factors to using it at range are to check the meplat on each batch to make sure the batch is optimized for low impact velocities, 30 second alterations if needed. I covered this in the cartridges book. The 152gr could be put to use, may suit your wants and needs nic..

Re: Need Loading Help 9 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Need Loading Help

OK, here we go. Expert advice, otherwise known as long distance guess work. Human issues. 1. There is a high possibility that the brake is reducing recoil to the shoulder but then creating a concussion shock wave which creates a more subtle yet insidious problem. This problem can be worse than issues caused by felt recoil. Not a great many people understand this so don't bother googling it. 2. Brake is removed to isolate rifle on its own but technique is not optimal to control rifle. If so, this..

Re: .270 Win Concentricity, simplicity lesson learned... 9 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: .270 Win Concentricity, simplicity lesson learned...

Hi Robert, just a quick note, I have changed the heading of this thread slightly so that other .270 users can browse the SST / chamber info. For other readers (Tikka shooters): Example of Tikka chamber / 150gr SST / Max OAL sometimes around 86.2mm or 3.393". This should be considered somewhat short. Magazine length 85.7mm (3.374"). Seat to 85.2mm (3.354') and see how ammo feeds. Seat shorter if need be. Work up loads very carefully, no assumptions. H4350 / 2209 / N160 still best, especially for ..

Re: 223 for rabits 9 months ago by Caleb Mayfield Re: 223 for rabits

Brendan, to be truly discreet you need the bullet to be traveling at subsonic speeds as it leaves the suppressor. So for comparison, the 223 is still going to have a loud crack from the supersonic projectile. If it were me I think I would ask the following questions: How far am I going to be shooting rabbits? Do I want anything to be left after shooting them? How quiet do I need to be? (Houses nearby or just don't startle the horses?) What subsonic ammunition is available for either option? What..

Re: Sierra 30cal 195 TMKs in the 308  and the 30.06 ?? 10 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Sierra 30cal 195 TMKs in the 308 and the 30.06 ??

Thanks Joshua. OK, we can consider that chamber (throat length) as being in the exact middle of the SAAMI min max range. Guys if you are interested in the 06, then jot this down also. So again we can see how data varies. In the space of just two forum threads, we have Todds first barrel at SAAMI max (actually just a shade more), the next under min and now Joshua's which is a mid spec. Easy to see how load data can be misused.

Re: Something Different -A Rafting Trip/Bear Hunting Rifle 10 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Something Different -A Rafting Trip/Bear Hunting Rifle

One thing I want to add to this thread - Marty's post. It was a shame to see this skipped over. The rifle Marty mentioned is as light as one could possibly go with a medium bore of this power. It is ready to go out of the box. The action length is to be considered short and light for a long action therefore minimizing weight (yet plenty of allowable OAL for 9.3). The barrel is as thin as you can go. A percentage of folk do not have the grip strength for this particular combo, not enough to shoot..

Re: 10 months ago by Calin Brabandt Re: "Maxis" (Savage Axis Magnum Conversion)

Thanks very much for your thoughts and feelings about the 358 Norma, Nathan. You're definitely not alone. You got me reading about the 358 Norma now and it seems that hunters who own it love it! It's a shame that the cartridge never took off. Making brass from 300 WM looks like a fairly easy and economical solution. Interestingly, online retailer MidwayUSA's price for Norma brand 358 brass is actually lower than the price for nearly any other Norma brass, including Norma 338 Win Mag brass. Somet..

Re: 10 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: "Maxis" (Savage Axis Magnum Conversion)

Regarding the .375 Ruger, feeding is different when you have the whole body at belt diameter. But further to this, it changes again when both body and bullet diamter are increased. It can be quite annoying, cartridges popping out. But I suppose anything is possible given enough time and mucking around. That .358 Norma option looks enticing. But you would need to be prepared to muck around with brass (best to trim .300 right down) and it would be good to make use of the Hawk brand of bullets. Thi..

Re: Thanks Nathan & True Flight 10 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Thanks Nathan & True Flight

Thanks for your kind words Todd. That is a great. Hopefully it also has a sweet spot at full speeds. While we are on this topic, I may as well share some of my own current research on the subject of the .30-06. First and foremostly, it is important to understand that SAAMI min and max specs for the .30-06 vary widely. Min spec is fine for light bullets but badly cramps heavy numbers. Max spec can create long jumps with short bullets. Body specs can differ by a few thou. Throat specs can differ b..

The ER Shaw Savage standard magnum profile online order page does offer 375 Ruger, 35 Whelen (including AI), and many other options (including the 358 Norma, which does sound interesting, but the Shaw barrel is 1:14 only). In standard magnum, barrels go up to the 375 RUM. Even larger caliber options are available on their Savage heavy magnum and varmint profile order pages. However, the Shaw website says the Savage barrels are not for the Edge/Axis and their installation services are not availab..

Re: 10 months ago by Calin Brabandt Re: "Maxis" (Savage Axis Magnum Conversion)

Quote: But if you want to study 'change' then do add velocity to the equation. Too often we sell ourselves short in this regard. If you have a big case to begin with, you can generally soft load if need be. But if you have a small case, you cannot load extra fast. I think the 375 Ruger would give me a bit more room to work with than the 35 Whelen in this equation. It's tough to generalize with any value but trying to compare apples to apples from your ballistics information, the 475 Ruger might ..
