Re: Ignorance is bliss 25 months ago by Cor Nepgen Re: Ignorance is bliss

Hi All, Well this turned into a very interesting thread and some good reading! Apart from all the very good advice given above, I would highly recommend slowing down a bit and go through the books step by step.. Especially the Long Range Rifles book. It really does go through the basics of what you want, as well as the pro's and cons of each action. So take your time and go through all the books step by step. If you need to save up some, that is actually a blessing in disguise because it gives y..

Both my rifles wear Lothar Walther, they are excellent quality wise. You could try the website as they do a lot of ready profiled and threaded barrels for a variety of guns. Over here a lot of people are saying good things about Bergara barrels, they are cheap too...

Re: A 270 Magnum 26 months ago by Thomas Kitchen Re: A 270 Magnum

hi Murray not sure where your getting 168gr .277 amax's from?? i would love hornady to do amax's in 270. i am big fan of my 270win but the 277 bore is an odd one thats not overly well looked after with high bc projectiles. anything is possible but you got to workout if its worth it. the 264 win mag might be a good option. also have a read of this thread http://www.ballisticstudies.com/Resources/Discussion+Forums/x_forum/18/thread/1421.html

Re: Supressor on 25-06 26 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Supressor on 25-06

Yes, unfortunately, the .25-06 derives its good killing performance from high velocity. It fires a very light bullet and is reliant on dsiprortionate to caliber wounding via velocity. A good number of .25-06 users end up with .257 Weatherby rifles as a way to enhance this further, whether they understand or have the words to describe these things or not. They simply see what they see and want more. The .25-06 loses 35fps per inch so you stand to lose around 100fps. This may or may not be a big d..

Re: Supressor on 25-06 26 months ago by Thomas Kitchen Re: Supressor on 25-06

hi Jeremy i would leave it long but there's a little more to this depending on the contour of your barrel. if your barrel is of very thin profile its sometime better to shorten it so there's more metal for threading and a better shoulder for the suppressor to butt up against. i wouldn't go shorter then 22 try leaving it 23-24 if possible is my opinion

Dealing with dissent 26 months ago by Andrew Murray Dealing with dissent

How do you lot deal with blokes that want to tell you that you're shooting wrong? Like Patrik's post "Hold that Forend" it works [http://www.ballisticstudies.com/Resources/Discussion+Forums/x_forum/18/thread/12056.html]... Surely others can see the results but still want to say you're doing it wrong? I notice that just about every shooting image about target or long range shooting has a guy with a bipod and both arms down the butt of the stock. Surely the results speak for themselves right?

Re: Sandbags 27 months ago by Christopher Howse Re: Sandbags

So I purchased a generic brand X bag type sandbag. I wear my jeans as work wear till threadbare. So my EBay X bag by straight shooter shooting supplies Australia cost $50 Posted and that seemed OK to me as it seems like quality cordura type material with some no slip where it grips the rifle and is shaped suitably as the bag is intended. Using creek sand from a dry outback creek the same as we use in concrete it weighs in at a whopping 15 kilograms filled with sieved creek sand. My idea is to ha..

Re: One hunting rifle! 27 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: One hunting rifle!

For me, possibly the .30-06. I love my .308 hack but if I had to sell off everything including the long reaching magnums but still wanted to be able to shoot relatively long while having plenty of power for all situations, then the .30-06 would win out. I have built a few good .30-06 rifles now and while they do suffer more wind drift than the likes of the 7mm Rem Mag etc, they never fail to please. Its always hard to say though. If we went Mad Max, then the .223 might be the better choice for a..

Re: Interesting Book 27 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Interesting Book

The Book "A yankee in the trenches" is now available as an open source share since being out of print for many years, then finally formatted into a PDF. An interesting book in that it is almost a fly on the wall view of the Commonwealth forces. A must read for any war history buff. I assume the book link you posted is of the same publishing fate. If it is not, I would prefer to delete this thread.

Good news from the 'smith - P-14 is done 27 months ago by Paul Leverman Good news from the 'smith - P-14 is done

Got an email just now from my 'smith. He's finished the barrell for the P-14. He's got it threaded and chambered, and honed out. I'll have to wait until I get it home to see what's happening with brass. There was an issue with the SAAMI chamber specs and what my dies made. He also throated it to suit the 208gr A-MAX, which equates to somewhere around 1/4" longer than normal, .240" if I remember correctly. Except for the fitting and bedding of the barrel and action into the Boyds stock, the wood ..

Re: carbon fiber stocks 27 months ago by Bryan Webster Re: carbon fiber stocks

Most of the issue is the shape of the stock as Nathan has explained in his books. Other than that, and very important is improving your shooting technique from various positions. The carbon Fiber stocks from makers like McMillan and Manners as well as some NZ firms, if you choose the correct shape, are flawless in this regard. Other things you can do (especially in NZ is to add a suppressor. Here many have a good gunsmith thread the barrel and install a a high quality muzzle brake.

New technology in bullet construction has reduced the importance of this number. I would consider 130 gr copper bullets. You will keep velocity over 2600 fps for your range, and energy over 2100 ft-lbs/sec. Great penetration. Just as suggestion.
