Re: Finally able to get Nathan's books 4 months ago by Luis Vazquez Re: Finally able to get Nathan's books

I've been shooting since I was 4 years old and hunting since I was 6, and I am 43 now. Started learning to reload with my dad when I was 10 and really though I was pretty knowledgeable till I started reading your website, the knowledge base and the threads. By reading your studies I realized why I did some of the thinks I did when reloading, setting up a rifle, load development, etc, thinks I learned from my dad and I never questioned them but now I know why I agree with you on not trusting the ..

Re: Always learning 4 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Always learning

There are two very good elements to this thread which others can learn from and should take note of. Nick has described the difficulty of holding a very small and light rifle versus the level of accuracy he is trying to obtain. Factors such as heart rate and breathing will be effecting results. Stresses from his working week will show as errors in his technique. Nick needs to be aware that a proportion of his accuracy issues may be from the ammo, especially the black ammo with steel cases which ..

Re: Bitten by the Medium Bore Bug 5 months ago by Luke Lahdenranta Re: Bitten by the Medium Bore Bug

So I started this thread about a year and a half ago, when after reading Nathan's medium bore cartridge write ups way, way too many times i found myself bitten by the medium bore bug and just had to get one. I went back and forth on a bunch of different options with a 9.3x62, the Ruger Guide gun 375 and 338 Win mag being the top contenders... But sometimes a good deal is what is needed to break the dead lock so I just ended up the proud new owner of a Weatherby MK V Lefthanded in 340 Weatherby !..

Soft points going too fast to expand!! 5 months ago by Connor Huntbach Soft points going too fast to expand!!

On a U.K. hunting website there is a debate going on where several so called pro shooters are claiming that soft point hunting bullets will fail to expand if pushed too fast (if the animal is too close or you are using too potent a cartridge). Apparently they have seen this happen hundreds of times and anyone who believes that it is simply down to the bullets construction or shot placement is an idiot! The link is https://www.thestalkingdirectory.co.uk/threads/soft-point-expansion.169372/ if any..

Re: Barnes TSX Failure 5 months ago by Luis Vazquez Re: Barnes TSX Failure

You can try out Hammer Bullets, I dont know if they ship outside the US but you can check. You'll want a light for caliber bullet so you can push it faster, however these bullets are guaranteed to provide terminal peeformance down to 1,800 fps. Of course higher impact velocities are recommended, but they work great. Here is a link to some more info on them: https://www.longrangehunting.com/threads/hammer-bullets.211476/ Best regards, Luis

Re: caldwell chrony 5 months ago by Trace Jacoby Re: caldwell chrony

I am in the market for a new chronograph and after reading through this thread, am looking toward the Caldwell. The one I used before was a borrowed shooting chrony alpha model. I was not impressed with it. It seemed to be very sensitive to lighting and would not read consistently most of the time. I was wondering if there are any useful updates on the Caldwell unit? Some of the reviews online are mixed, some have me believing it may not be much better. But I trust the collective knowledge and e..

Re: Used Remington SPSís 6 months ago by Ryan Nafe Re: Used Remington SPSís

Some updates for everyone whoís been wondering how the project has been coming along: - The rifle is fully assembled and ready to shoot. Everything has been threadlocked and torqued to either manufacturerís specs or Nathanís specs in the case of the action screws. A quick summary of what Iíve done to a stock SPS 7mm Rem Mag circa 2008 manufacture: - Stockyís M50 Laminate w/aluminum block stock, middle swivel stud removed - TriggerTech Primary trigger set as low as it goes (1.5 to 2 pounds) - War..

Re: .280AI Build 6 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: .280AI Build

Hi M.A, it helps if you have a false shoulder for the cases. If you have a .30 or .338 cal FL die with a tear drop shaped button, then it would be good to neck up, then neck back down again using another FL die. The cases should be a tight fit in the chamber with the false shoulder. This will help to prevent stretching at the case head. After that, seat into the lands as you suggested. TB is fine, mild loads of 2213sc burn rate also fine (RE 22 etc). 1:9 is fine. The 3 contour finished at 26" ca..

Re: Barnes TSX Failure 6 months ago by Andrew Murray Re: Barnes TSX Failure

Anders, It is mentioned in the second post of this thread. "...Relatively new issue..." Hence the comments about past results having no bearing on the current problems. Perhaps it was a simple QC error by Barnes, but if I had to guess I'd say they have dropped their standard to make/save money. Many companies do this.

Re: Barnes TSX Failure 6 months ago by Anders ÷sterberg Re: Barnes TSX Failure

Quote:Some of you may be missing the point here. I was talking about recent batch issues. Lately I have been seeing issues with bullets weighing less than 100 grains at impact velocities over 2900fps in flesh, recovered bullets showing zero expansion. I suggested folk keep an eye on (test) their current ammo just to be sure. This has nothing to do with game shot in the past and comments of this nature have no relevance to this discussion. When/where did you wrote that... not in this thread...? I..

Re: .375 _?_ Mauser 98 Oberndorf 6 months ago by Paul Leverman Re: .375 _?_ Mauser 98 Oberndorf

Couple of things, John. It's not impossible but it will be a test of your gunsmiths ability to set it back a thread. He has to match the iron sights location perfectly. Before he does this, he should at least cast the chamber. By far easier, and it may answer all your questions. Also, do you have a new case, or a F/L sized case you can try? Maybe it's just a question of shoulder location/angle or of neck length. Nice looking rifle.

Re: The Hack 6 months ago by Paul Leverman Re: The Hack

It looks as if the holes had some contaminant in them. The threads are still intact, but you can see how the apex has been rounded off. As Nathan said, you should find a hand tap and t-handle and clean up the threads in the hole first. If you try to wind in the new bolts, the same thing will happen again. Be very careful about your alignment when using the tap, not difficult to do, but can sometimes be tricky to get it started. The issue being where the threads of the hole are damaged. A taper t..

Hi John, you'll see this thread is already running in the long range section. Should be a good bullet but will take up a lot of mag space as you have suggested.

Re: The Hack 6 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: The Hack

Hi Bryan, the common name for this thread pitch is 1/4" UNF (1/4" x 28). If there has been some cross threading (perhaps compound seeped into the threads), it may pay to obtain a thread tap and wind this in by hand to clean up the threads. If you need new screws, these will ship from the U.S (Midway / Brownells) to Ireland without restrictions. But you may also be able to find 1/4" UNF hex heads locally.

Re: The Hack 6 months ago by Paul Leverman Re: The Hack

Remington should (may) have 1/4-28 screws. Without a better picture, it looks like this one was cross-threaded or had something in the hole. May also have been screwed into a differently threaded hole, perhaps a 1/4-20 or 1/4-32?

Re: 7.62x39 vs 5.56x45 7 months ago by William Craig Re: 7.62x39 vs 5.56x45

You donít say where you are or what you plan to hunt, so itís difficult to fully assess which caliber would be best for you. I live in central Virginia, so my comments will be based on living and hunting here. Iíve not shot the 7.62x39 much, although I did mess with a .300 BLK for a while. I have shot the .223/5.56x45 a lot - from AR as well as bolt actions. It can do a lot, but it really isnít the best choice for hunting game weighing much over 50 pounds. The 7.62x39 and .300 BLK throw a much h..
