Re: Long time Hunter/Shooter/Reloader Just Finishing Nathan's Books 2 months ago by Steph Foster Re: Long time Hunter/Shooter/Reloader Just Finishing Nathan's Books

Hi John, Chris has made me a very pretty emerald green stock for my left handed Montana action (7mm Rem Mag) and I love it! So much so that when I finally get around to finishing my 7mm Practical project I am hoping that Chris will consent to making me another stock - colour undecided at the moment. I really rate Chris's stocks, he does good work. Hi Willie, Welcome to the forum. You are working in one of the places on the planet that I most want to visit. I guess the Northern Lights are old hat..

Re: Long time Hunter/Shooter/Reloader Just Finishing Nathan's Books 2 months ago by Willy Bartel Re: Long time Hunter/Shooter/Reloader Just Finishing Nathan's Books

I found and ordered a Timney 110 Enfield 5-shot trigger. It cost $104 delivered with taxes. Here's a link to a post detailing my adventures with the P14 as well as pics of the modifications. https://www.canadiangunnutz.com/forum/showthread.php/1485641-Dad-s-first-deer-Ever-amp-My-first-4-Point?p=13217489#post13217489 [https://www.canadiangunnutz.com/forum/showthread.php/1485641-Dad-s-first-deer-Ever-amp-My-first-4-Point?p=13217489#post13217489]

Re: Long time Hunter/Shooter/Reloader Just Finishing Nathan's Books 2 months ago by Willy Bartel Re: Long time Hunter/Shooter/Reloader Just Finishing Nathan's Books

Hi Paul, I found a timney listed at Ellwood Epps. They've been into 303 in a big way for years they even have a Cartridge/Reamer named after them. 303Epps. Cleaning after the range...this has been a bugbear for a couple years since I mounted a scope and reworked the stock. The barrel is badly pitted and muzzle worn. I should probably cut a couple inches off and recrown. Can you confirm that it's the correct trigger? It's listed as TRIGGER ENFIELD SP E1-5 6-SHOT MAG. Item: MGA 111 Hmmm I found Th..

Re: 280 Ackley Recommended Projectile Weights 3 months ago by Iain Re: 280 Ackley Recommended Projectile Weights

Looks pretty good to me Vince. You should be happy with that. Just a couple of tips with the Montanas - if you already know, no harm done, but they may be helpful. I've owned a few of them and found some of this out the hard way. 1/ Kimber assembled many of the stainless 84Ls with the wrong front guard screw. For some reason best known to Kimber,they used the screw from the 84M which is .100" shorter. The result is only one turn of thread engagement in the action. The fix is a Rem 700 rear guard..

Re: New Load 3 months ago by Paul Leverman Re: New Load

Andrew - the following link has some outdated info, but does contain some powder comparisons, like using TraiBoss or SR4759, for reduced loads. It also contains a reference to the Lyman #49 manual. The Lyman loads start at 2403fps (IMR 4895/ AR2206H) up to 2717fps (BL-C(2)/AR2206); these are their starting loads. If you don't have the Lyman manual, I can scan it and post in the Test forum for you. Hope this will lead you somewhere: https://forums.gunboards.com/showthread.php?471417-SR-4759-for-r..

just for warwick reply the henry's 22 levers have a good rep. Mark i have been using cci suppressor rounds lately i can't rate them enough, they kill really well. the 22lr is an odd design in theory it shouldn't be as popular as it is, its heeled projectile (only centrefire i can think of that a heeled design is 310 cadet) and no freebore once again only one that comes to mind is the 22 hornet. what's interesting is how tight the saami spec match chamber is compared to the sporting spec one. mus..

.22 LR Remington 597 3 months ago by mark suckling .22 LR Remington 597

Hi Guys, Not really the appropriate forum for this but I know there is a wealth of experience here. I've had a number of .22LR over the years, I'm often disappointed with the accuracy and move them on. The best I had was a savage rascal for my son but he out grew that one. I have a tidy heavy barreled Remington 597 semi auto in a Boyd type laminate stock. The accuracy is pretty ordinary with this one too. I've recrowned it and mock bedded it with auto filler receiver only, this eliminates the ba..

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.

Re: .17 HMR and Bore/Throat Polishing 4 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 4 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? 4 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? 4 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 5 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 5 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 5 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.

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..
