Re: Knife sharpening 13 months ago by Joshua Mayfield Re: Knife sharpening

Last year this thread prompted me to read up on one of my state's unique natural resources - novaculite. Arkansas whetstones are pretty widely known, but it dawned on me that I didn't actually know much about them. In my reading I saw that two of the leading suppliers of finished stones are located just minutes down the road from a place my wife and I take the kids two or three times a year. So I called them up and asked if I could drop by. At both places real, live, knowledgeable people answere..

Re: Muzzle Break .375 14 months ago by Thomas Kitchen Re: Muzzle Break .375

hi Alan it appears this thread got missed. im not sure what action you planning on doing a build on, if its a remington have a look on the blog you'll see Nathan shooting a 375 rum in a precision platform stock and how much alone the stock can make a difference. i was talking to Clive yesterday great guy not sure if he's exporting stock but might be of some use to you. trueflite here in nz does a very good forwards venting muzzle brake it takes the sting out a caliber without the rearwards blast..

Re: Podcast, Nathan 14 months ago by Luke Lahdenranta Re: Podcast, Nathan

Thanks for posting that up Nathan, I enjoyed the shoot the breeze on the podcast. I hope you do get to do a part 2. I had to laugh about the comments near the end about the gun weights and 9.5 lb being a good average weight. I was just reading a thread about guys bragging up their ultralight weight rifles (from a big name manufacturer that you refuse to work on) that come in around 6lb scoped. I've never shot a rifle that light but I really do wonder about those guns. Everybody atleast on the in..

Re: Winchester Coyote Light 14 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Winchester Coyote Light

Hi mark, sorry I was away bush. Stopped here yesterday just to paste Colfo's gun policy page regarding the elections. As an answer to the first, the Coyote is basically the old push feed version of the M70. These were a very nice action however if yours has polymer floorware, you will have to be careful with torque settings, crushing, splitting etc. Otherwise these are quite often a very accurate rifle. The mag length is a true short action, no good for the 180gr. Please see following FAQ from s..

Re: 338 edge 15 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: 338 edge

Just to clarify Jared, my .338 Edge in the Precision platforms vid is .725" at the shoulder with an M16 thread. The barrel is 26" long. OAL with the 285gr was 95.6mm for .2mm jump but the throat has since gone for a walk so it now has some jump but still accurate. Velocity and jump at middle age is not unlike a .308. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D50hQluX9hY [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D50hQluX9hY]

Re: Hornady 243 - 6mm 103gr ELD-X 15 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Hornady 243 - 6mm 103gr ELD-X

Hi mark, this is in essence a high BC variation of the 95gr SST, but with a touch extra weight. This is a very good bullet design. It is limitations are relative to the bore diameter rather than the actual bullet design. Hornady have done their best to provide us with a bullet that retains velocity which equates to more than just a flat trajectory. Couple high retained velocity with a wide meplat and the result is increased wounding potential. This bullet also suits the now common 8 twist bores ..

Re: 338 edge 15 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: 338 edge

Thats a shame. When TF started out, there was a major learning curve, much of which you may have read about in my Accurizing book. There were no doubt some barrels in those early days that did not shoot as well as they could and some were truly flat out duds. This was not just about making mistakes, it was a path of discovery, sorting the theory of barrel making from fact. I chose to stick with TF through thick and thin and to help them get to the core of things (again as covered in the book). O..

338 edge 15 months ago by Jared Breingan 338 edge

Just got a few question you guys might be able to help with in regards to my 338 edge I'm having built. Action is a stiller predator Barrel is a kreiger no6 contour will be finished at 28" to start with. Which should be about .730 at the muzzle. Barrrel weight is similar to the Rem Varmint but with more meat at the chamber end and less at the muzzle. Stock will most likely end up being a precision platform. So first question I'm going to have a muzzle brake fitted so what would you recommend for..

Definitely tongue-in-cheek on the baseball cap and glasses. The boonie is where it's at. I've become a believer on this point, among others.

Joshua, are you sure we shouldn't offer a boonie hat in that kit instead of a baseball cap?

Re: 338 RCM  Heavy bullet load? 15 months ago by Thomas Kitchen Re: 338 RCM Heavy bullet load?

HI James Have a read of this thread it might help http://www.ballisticstudies.com/Resources/Discussion+Forums/x_forum/24/thread/14961.html My take on things is if we look at the smaller say quarter bores and smaller we have to be weary of to much energy transfer and not enough penetration, that's why you have to be careful with matching projectiles to game weights. Now when when we move towards the bigger bores 338,358 etc we have to be careful of to much penetration and not enough energy transf..

I want in. I'll help with stateside marketing. Let's kick things off by offering complimentary promotional kit (see how I used "kit" like you Aussies and Kiwis) items, starting with the "Foster Special," a baseball style cap that can only be worn backward and wraparound sunglasses.

Re: The official Remington Custom Shop 15 months ago by Lane Salvato Re: The official Remington Custom Shop "Terminal Ballistics Ultimate Long Range Rifle" thread

Thomas, Nathan would also insist upon monolithic copper projectiles with an extra tough nose to ensure they stay together and make an exit wound for a nice blood trail over the mountains. One could argue for an extra long box magazine and make it the Tactical Practical. Also, extra light scope and rings to be sure to keep the weight to 6.5 lbs or less, a definite "mountain rifle"!

Dan you probably remember when it was announced on the wireless that the british army was looking at replacing the lee enfield after the boer war with a mauser style bolt action. did you jump on your penny-farthing to go tell your friends. you know its looking a million bucks now after a rebluing specially for 100 year old action, they are well made actions, would be nice to have a 35/303 built on one hmmm. i thought Nathan would want a nice browning, with an ultra light carbon fiber stock with ..

Re: The official Remington Custom Shop 15 months ago by Martin Taylor Re: The official Remington Custom Shop "Terminal Ballistics Ultimate Long Range Rifle" thread

With that sort of budget it has to be a SS control round feed Rem clone for me, you get all the excellent design benefits of the Rem and more reliable cycling. So like a Montana etc, etc. with a pinned 20moa rail. Ruger's work very well after setting up but they are over complicated in their designs, way to much going on for me. Pick your adjustable stock its a very personal taste part of the equation, you all know the design characteristics to look for from reading Nathan's literature and watch..

Very funny Luke. I am sure that in the instruction booklet, the words "Hold it like a man" would not go amiss. Both Dave Manson and I are still surprised how fast the Practical reamers have been selling. We also had dies made. Dave's share of the order was sold before I could even make announcements, am not sure if he has any left. I am currently withholding putting the dies up for sale on our site as we have upgraded the seater stem further. All dies whether sold or yet to be sold will be fitte..

I thought the Remington M700 SPS 7mm Remington Magnum was already the unofficial "Terminal Ballistics Edition Ultimate Long Range Rifle" ? :) Remington supplies the rifle part of the kit, Nathan supplies the Book, DVD, and bedding kit to fix the stock, you pick a scope and off to the races we go! I guess Remington could officially sponsor Nathan like those TV gator hunter guys. Could get the stock hydrodipped with Nathan scowling and shouting "Hold that forend ya pansy!!" I would buy one.

Yesterday I was using my time productively browsing the Remington Custom Shop. Yes dreaming of when I win lotto. I noticed the new Kuiu Ultimate Sheep Rifle for $5895, lots of Kuiu and Carbon bling. Now if Nathan and Remington joined forces to produce the "Terminal Ballistics Ultimate Long Range Rifle", what would it be? My suggestion would not be the obvious Sendero based rifle but a Practical rifle with lots of Practical bling: 7mm Practical - making it a factory calibre Trued long action Remi..
