Re: Rem Sendaro 7mm load dev issues/headache 53 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..

Re: Remington 700 53 months ago by Martin Taylor Re: Remington 700 "Long Range"

Nathan covers that stock design in his book Jacob, will work but it exaggerates recoil to a degree and the fore grip is not as good as say the Sendero. I have only used one of these stocks on a 308 (I think it was?) and it worked ok on that. My understanding of these is that they can vary in builds (check the old threads) but generally they were along the lines of a SPS varmint in the better quality stock. All the normal Rem tweaks will be needed as in your book and build quality is still on the..

Re: small calibre muzzle brakes 53 months ago by Martin Taylor Re: small calibre muzzle brakes

My son & I are about to build a 223, wish lí d known it needed a brake to be shot accurately as l would have ordered it with a threaded muzzle. Damn. If a shooter cannot recover sight picture after firing a small calibre like a 223 or simliar at it's medium/maximum effective ranges they are doing things horribly, horribly wrong. Set up your gear and get some techneqiue worked out as Chris & Jason have said. Justifing brakes on small cal's, give me a bloody break....... I will stop my ranting the..

Re: What are members other hobbies or projects 53 months ago by jason Re: What are members other hobbies or projects

Warwick I can relate to the fun police. At my local beach the council have blocked off private beach access for quads. We now have to travel along the road and in the designated access. You have to now have a car licence, they class the beach as a road. You can only go in the designated part of the beach. They have fenced off the sand dunes to save the plants from quads, maybe fair enough. You need to also register the quad for the road. Also register the quad with the council every year. And mu..

Healthy and supportive 53 months ago by Nathan Foster Healthy and supportive

This "off topic" forum has been set up on request, currently on a trial basis. If you can't keep your posts light and need to vent, then so be it. But do try to support each other in a caring and concerned manner. The TBR forums have attracted a wonderful group of kind and warm hearted hunters from around the world so I hope that this continues within this thread. Please note, I may not be able to spend much time on this forum as I am already stretched thin. Also, being that I am normally in the..

Face time? 53 months ago by Francis Saunders Face time?

Hi Nathan I have just been reading with interest the thread from Bush Chook. Also the idea that you posted on live discussion work shop. In your last post to Bush Chook you said that not seeing the rifle and the way he shot made isolating the problems hard for you, which I can we'll agree with. Just a thought. Have you an IPad? You could video face time with clients that do. I no that this would not solve all the can of worms and may even open up a few...but it may be worth looking into. Cheers ..

Re: Tikka T-3 chamber size and resizing 54 months ago by Bert Saenen Re: Tikka T-3 chamber size and resizing

Hi Martin, thank you for your reply. When I did try this the first time I didn't have the concentricity tool yet. My main problem with seating this long was neck tension. Three of the four test cartridges (without primer or powder) collapsed in the Redding Instant Indicator. The one test cartridge I still have has minimal runout. The needle in the concentricity tool just wiggles a bit. FYI, these are the COAL and CBTO to jam I recorded (all with Lapua cases): Hornady 168gr AMAX: COAL 2.896" CBTO..

Re: BRNO ZKK Project 54 months ago by Mike Dewey Re: BRNO ZKK Project

Thanks for the reply Nathan. Have some of your compound from another project. Ordered two just in case... Wondering about relief between the front 'pillar' and the threaded projection under recoil lug. Contemplating just filling gap with compound then Dremelling out some relief if needed. What think? The Leopold 2-7 x 33 VXR is maybe a newer version of what you're thinking of, I can easily fit a fist between brow and rubber eye piece. Put probably close to 150 rounds through without trouble off ..

Re: Skype group call 55 months ago by jason Re: Skype group call

Honestly.... yeah, nah. The amount of info or detail you go into needs to be able to be re- viewed over a few times to sink in. I would of thought this would make you even more busy. And often someone's question has been asked in a similar way before in a previous thread. And usually its dis- missed as it's not a concern to us at that very time. people need to search old threads. I guess you could do the videos from the lazy boy. But I would guess they would be much like the forum as very accura..

Very interesting and seemingly comprehensive. http://www.dayattherange.com/?page_id=3667 Mike, still sorry about your lost barrel--about any lost barrel--but it sounds that based on this study that you might have done worse a lot sooner than with FrogLube.

Hi Craig. Dan from Reloaders supplies gifted me a bore guide a while ago. I do use it- specifically to keep solvent out of chambers. The guide is not so helpful if lapping as I have written in book 3, but it really is useful from prevent runny solvents like Eliminator or KG-12 from running to the action and mag well. It saves a big clean up. But as for preventing chamber damage- well, I have a tool specifically for this called my brain plus an additional tool called common sense. These were the ..

Re: 7mm accuracy issues 55 months ago by jason Re: 7mm accuracy issues

You will find a few good posts on this if you look at past threads. Myself found the 154 sst hard to get grouping. It was ok but not what I hoped for. With thoughts of it being my fault not being able to shoot straight. That was until I tried the amax. But anyway look at those old threads plenty of good info in there.

Re: sako carbonlight 55 months ago by Ricardo Laborin Re: sako carbonlight

Guys, very cool thread! Andrew, thank you for sharing, it resonates a lot with me. I too bought a Sako 85 Finnlight in 300 WSM that takes me back to high school fistfights whenever I shoot it, but sure damn wanted it and paid a lot for it!! I'll put it on the block for sale as soon as the new 300 comes in, mind you, at 8.5lbs unscoped and with a straight recoiling stock. Funny thing is, I've never seen an old-timer carrying ANY light rifle that was not a .22 Saludos!

Uncle Nick would know (Nick Harvey). OK, just a bit more to add to this thread. [http://s1322.photobucket.com/user/NathanFoster1/media/Sako%20muzzle%20WL_zpsrbki1d0r.jpg.html] The above photo shows a Sako suffering from severe copper fouling on the lands. Other rifles may show the same in the grooves. This coating is in essence fused to the bore. Think of it as being pretty much guilded / braised in place. If we put Sweets through this bore and leave it for an hour, the Sweets will have worked ..
