Re: New Schultz and Larsen Rifles 13 months ago by Thomas Kitchen Re: New Schultz and Larsen Rifles

hi Luke as soon as you see this "the three lug low lift bolt locks solidly into the barrel" it sends alarm bells ringing. you got to stop and think if the locks lugs aren't locking squarely then i will have to lap them and then that means every barrel will have to be lapped in, you can't really true the action either. you can also see that it's a switch barrel action using a c clamp style system. there no room to bed the whole clamp as the magazine is hard up against it and the tiny recoil lug t..

Re: Cartridges for Fast Killing Inside 125 Yards 13 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Cartridges for Fast Killing Inside 125 Yards

Yes, anyone hoping on this thread might wonder what the heck is going on, a .375" for deer? But we have our freedom of choice and again this thread is about curiosity. Those with an open mind will understand all sides of any arguments here. As a heads up, I have updated the Whelen page this morning, just a small update at the bottom, introducing the Hawk bullets along with notes on the bullet jackets. I have no experience with these projectiles yet, all current feedback is reliant on the couple ..

Re: Cartridges for Fast Killing Inside 125 Yards 13 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Cartridges for Fast Killing Inside 125 Yards

Shot placement is certainly a key factor as is bullet design. And as you said Mike, there is no need for more than a .308 inside 200 yards on these body weights but sometimes a guy just wants to experiment and this thread was based on boredom versus curiosity which I quite understand. Generally speaking Ryan, I teach readers to aim for the forwards section of the shoulder which gives room for error in both directions. You will see my comments on shot placement versus the customs of various count..

"I just don't see the possibility of someone carving the keyboard buttons out of bone or wood. A society of convenience, driven by the marketing specialists that tell us what we can't live without" Well said Paul. I made a brief comment on another thread about market driven products and our reliance on ever "better" phones, tablets etc. I thought it interesting that folks were pointing out the uselessness of things on new guns like plastic stocks, muzzle breaks etc and complaining about spell c..

Re: Cartridges for Fast Killing Inside 125 Yards 13 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Cartridges for Fast Killing Inside 125 Yards

Hi Ryan, unless you have an injury or special circumstances, it can be best to put recoil out of your mind and focus on both stock design and technique as per the book series and also some of the videos we have been making. It is really hard to have it both ways. If you want a change in performance, then there needs to be a change in power, embrace it. The 7mm Rem Mag is for example my wife Steph's pet choice. However she has been so sick of recoil emails lately that she is going to put a 7mm Pr..

Hi Ryan i have been reading this thread progress with interest. at first i did think the humble 270 would excel, i use one as a general hack and have found both 150gr interlocks and partitions handloads can give you a real wow factor. i use to use hornady 130gr whitetail interlock factory loads with success not sure if its much different to 308 win results though. anyway after reading that you have been given a 25-06 i had quick google search for prefit 35 whelen barrels for a savage and seems t..

I was just having a look at cleavers website. If only i was right handed, 300wm howa varmints barreled actions 499... some good deals on rem700 5r milspec's too. But bugger me, every 20 inch barrel 308 i saw comes with a threaded muzzle, seems like nearly everything one there had a threaded muzzle.

Re: Some new steels for knife makers 14 months ago by Cor Nepgen Re: Some new steels for knife makers

Hi Warrick, Thank for the advice, think I'll save myself the experimenting with D2 haha. I must be honest, I like the way a patina builds up on steel but have never considered how this will influence the handle materials from an aesthetic perspective.. Food for thought.. I think you are on to something with the Chef knives in superblue, that just sounds like an amazing application for that steel. Sharpening knives are half the fun for me, between freehand stones and the sharpmaker I tend to have..

Re: Some new steels for knife makers 14 months ago by Cor Nepgen Re: Some new steels for knife makers

Hi Warrick, Thank you for posting your findings and this thread, I have become very interested in different steels and enjoy comparing them as an interest. I must stay, you are quite brave making a knife from S110v. My daily carry is a spyderco Manix 2 in S110V for the last two years or so. My experience with different steels is obviously much more limited than you, so far I have 8CR13MOV, VG10, 52100 and S110V. My experience is pretty much as you describe above. It will cut and keep on cutting ..

Parker Hale Rebarrel 14 months ago by Rod Smillie Parker Hale Rebarrel

Hi all I have a Parker Hale Majestic in 30-06 that I am considering rebarrelling in 30-06 as I have really enjoyed shooting it. It does shoot okay but am keen to extend it to a 500m rifle. I am not sure of the thread dimensions and what barrels would be appropriate. The action on the rifle is a mauser that was used before PH started making their own. Any advice gratefully recieved. Cheers Rod

I know this is an old thread but I finally found a good source for CRC 350 & 400 at a reasonable price in Canada. Acklands Granger. If they don't have it in store they will bring it in within a few days. Around $15 a can as opposed to $40 inc shipping on Amazon.

Re: .44 RM performance on medium-sized game 15 months ago by Jean Dupuis Re: .44 RM performance on medium-sized game

I'm ready to spend some money on good ammo for hunting, that's not a problem. As the Hornady FTX delivers good performance, I'll take it. Sadly, no cheap "cowboy loads" are available here in France, so either you plink with your own reloads, or you use lower quality hunting ammo like soft points rounds that can be found for around ~30€ or 35€ /50. It is quite costy, but for someone like me who wishes to have a decent hunting/plinking rifle it is in fact quite good. The only thing I still ask mys..

Re: Cold weather hunting ballistics, and feedback on my first custom rifle build. 15 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Cold weather hunting ballistics, and feedback on my first custom rifle build.

Hi Scott, the actual switch barrel concept can be hit and miss, especially in these environments. Yes, I know its popular these days, especially in tactical rifles- but so are bubble levels mounted in places where they are of no use. A major problem with switch barrels, is that in order to be able to make the switch, the barrel threads need to be loose enough that they can be undone by hand, often using a grub screw as a retainer. The trouble with this is that changes in temp can allow the syste..

Sierra 85 gr HPBT Gameking 15 months ago by Luke Lahdenranta Sierra 85 gr HPBT Gameking

I am about to set up and load for my Tikka 243, I am looking for a bullet that could serve as a benchmark for the performance of the 243 Win cartridge on deer at ordinary hunting ranges, let's say 300 yards or so. Reading over the Knowledgebase here as well as other threads on the 243 the bullet that seems to get recommended over and over again is Sierra's little .243 85 gr HPBT game king. This little bullet is supposed to kill deer very quickly but as 7mm/.30 guy used to heavier bullet weights ..
