Re: Picking bullets for our needs 50 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Picking bullets for our needs

Hi Brendon, if you want to go softer, yes, you can try the V-Max. I can see other good advice in this thread from bullet suggestions to 4 litre engines. As I have written in the KB, velocity is an important factor when using a small bore. So the first step is to make sure that your loads are up to full speeds. The second aspect is as talked about- shot placement, especially as we lose velocity. The HP Gameking is a good bullet in its own right. Be sure to study the actual wounding before you com..

Re: Last post gone 51 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Last post gone

No, its me that has to apologize. As much as I like to try and nuture the info exchange on the site, I do have some aspects that I want to keep solely for customers and also, avoid any "why are you doing it that way" questions because only a part of the book info was relayed in a thread. I have some of the tipped 180gr VLD projectiles you made and sent me here, but have been shooting .338 exclusively of late. Am hoping to spend time over xmas with the Practical and give your modified projectiles..

Re: barrel shortning & suppersors 51 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: barrel shortning & suppersors

Hi Brendon, sorry, just playing catch up here as I have been busy with projects. Sorry also for missing your mail. OK, so you are at 3030fps with 2213sc. If you go to 20" and change to 2209, I think you will be able to work up to 3150-3200fps and have a good load. This barrel length should work OK and by being a bit shorter and fatter, it will be better regarding the potential muzzle thread diameter and the effects of trapped heat. So in conclusion, you should find that with load development, th..

Re: barrel shortning & suppersors 51 months ago by Warwick Marflitt Re: barrel shortning & suppersors

Yeah Mike thanks for that. I researched and heard that B4 I ordered mine in 2010. Mine works great and he seamed good to deal with? I mean $110 for my suppressor compared to the moon beams others charge its only a tube with spacers and washers threaded at one end.... and like I said it works and his new stuff looks massive! But I didn't want a flash wank piece to show off!!!!! I just asked Rodge for a super quiet short out front over hang (150mm past barrel) suppressor and he gave me what I want..

Re: barrel shortning & suppersors 51 months ago by Warwick Marflitt Re: barrel shortning & suppersors

I think its the quickest way to devalue a rifle! keep it standard length and get the end threaded and get one made like I got for my 22LR by Rev Rodge. SUB-SILENT SUPPRESSORS.......... Check them out here's Video of my 22LR https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pRIKiK2msls http://sub-silentsuppressors.com/?page_id=8823 PRICES AND CONTACT. http://sub-silentsuppressors.com/?page_id=16079 Or you can use an engine oil filter!!

Re: 270win /150 sst 51 months ago by Paul Yates Re: 270win /150 sst

Sorry to revive an old thread. I, too, am working on developing a load for .270win with the 150gr. SST. Based on the reloading data from various sources, I have decided to see what I can do with IMR-7828. I will begin with some reasonable loads and work up from there. My target, of course, is the recommended 2900fps. I am aware that getting that out of a 22" barrel will require me to be at or above max pressure, and I am not particularly confident about doing so. At listed max pressures, it seem..

Shouldn't really be talking about guns and loads in this thread but I wanted to say- a .358x39 is my kind of cartridge. Nice. Just be a bit careful with a whole freebore thing in the magnums. Use the book series to help with your planning in this regard. Christmas soon....

Re: Scope and turret questions 51 months ago by Thomas Kitchen Re: Scope and turret questions

hi russell. i just fitted a bigsky 4-16x42 to my tikka, i don't notice the turrets getting caught on anything didn't even really notice the extra weight. the extra zoom of the 16x is very helpful specially if you do want to extend your ranges. not sure you would notice any difference between 3x and 4x at the bottom end but a lot of scope choices are personal choice for your type of hunting. they must be waterproof with caps off otherwise they would leak gas like you say but you wouldn't want to ..

Hi Jon, Theres a wee story behind the rifle - underfunately not a good one. I was very much looking forward to using this rifle in 8x57, but the barrels not the best and Im not willing to waste money on ammo to test it. Your extremely lucky to have some 170gr sst. I tried very hard to get hold of some before I actually had the rifle and it was impossible. Please reply back in this thread when you've tested them.

Re: learning curve of reloading 51 months ago by Mike Davis Re: learning curve of reloading

thats "refilling" not reloading.........I reload a very few loads for our shotguns using an very primative stack n whack type hand loader.... rounds wont chamber in everyone of the shotties but they are made for the break open guns with a light charge of steel shot so the fit for the purpose they are made for (low recoil legal killing loads)...... now give me new unfired cases and I can turn out rounds better than factory, that will chamber in anything. as thread title says..its a learning curve..

hi scott. i highly recommend Nathans books, the one on rifles will help you from having similar issues again. the axis is not really a good platform to work off you'll see why in the book. also have a look around on the forum there's few threads on guys working on tikka's, howa's plus few other brands might be good read. also Nathans video's on youtube are great

Re: Cleaning rods 52 months ago by Warwick Marflitt Re: Cleaning rods

A lot of RC planes have a carbon rod for the main wing spar. How would a thick brazing rod go? You could silver solder the threaded end off the old rod onto it and possibly the handle spigot too. Or use some Penny /Panel washers and make a handle from a drilled piece broom stick or some plastic rod?

Cleaning rods 52 months ago by Warrick Edmonds Cleaning rods

I happen to be in the market for a new cleaning rod. So off I go to the local gun shops where I'm presented with two choices. A stainless rod for $80Aust or a carbon fiber rod for $150Aust. Being a good student of Nathan's books I want to choose the carbon fiber, however for that price? What irked me was that the previous weekend I'd stopped in at a hobby store and picked up three meters of 5mm thick carbon rod (for my knife making) for a total cost of $20. Where does the 150 bucks come from? I ..

Re: change.org adler lever action petition 52 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: change.org adler lever action petition

Its fun to play God. In New Zealand, we had some birds, some rats and some Maori fullas. The Maori liked hunting and fishing. Then the white man came and spread himself around along with every other culture- and is still spreading himself around with every new subdivision and new house we put in, breeding willy nilly. Then we have the arrogance to say that such and such an animal is a pest and unbalancing the eco system. And so we carpet bomb our bush, kill some possums, kill the birds we are su..

Re: concentricity tools 52 months ago by Ben Law Re: concentricity tools

I drilled and tapped holes into the 50x50x5mm shs and cut short sections of threaded rod and screwed them in. It can be interesting when you discover some really poor ammo. I have some factory stuff that doesn't shoot too well, one round measured .017 run out at the projectile. I'm interested to see if/how much accuracy improves once all my brass is fire formed and neck sized compared to my fl sized rounds that have poor concentricity.

Re: Rem Sendaro 7mm load dev issues/headache 52 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Rem Sendaro 7mm load dev issues/headache

Hi Radley, don't blame the belt, this has nothing to do with the issues you are seeing. For starters, the brass you are using is a pain in the ass, both Nosler / Norma and Federal. Both are weak in 7mm rem Mag. If possible, change to Win brass. If you continue to have extraction issues, it will be a primary extraction problem with the action, not a brass issue. Or- it could be a reloading method issue. None of this has anything to do with the belt on your brass. The area just behind the shoulder..
