Re: Open sights 61 months ago by Randal Graham Re: Open sights

Browsing through the forum and came across this thread, thought I'd jump in as iron sight hunting has been my passion since the beginning of my hunting some 36 years now. I have had glassed rifles, particularly for coyotes, but most often use iron. My first great setup was on a BLR in .30-06, front sight was the factory post with a hood added and what I came up with was a small platinum shotgun bead. On the rear the first really good one was a lyman #90 .22 target sight, it has finger adjustable..

Re: Tikka T3 build/bedding 61 months ago by Paul Horwath Re: Tikka T3 build/bedding

Here's what I've done to prepare the pillars and the recoil lug for bedding my Tikka T3 action thus far. I've screwed the pillars to the action using a tapered head screw. On the threads of the tapered screw, I wrapped the threads with electrical tape to a diameter that fit the inner ID of the aluminum pillars. The tapered head centers the pillar at the top, and the electrical tap centers the pillar where it mates to the face of the action. Then I placed a tall socket on the top of the pillar th..

Quote:Hi Paul If you look at Bens picture above you can see the pillars protruding from the stock that will fit up flush against the washers located in the plastic trigger guard. I have done similar is the Boyd's stock but have used a machined feral that fits into the plastic guard then bedded them into the stock, l also machined flat seat rather than tapered action screws. The problem lies with the original tapered screws pulling into and possibly through the unsupported thin washers in the gua..

Re: Unburnt powder in the moderator 61 months ago by chris murphy Re: Unburnt powder in the moderator

Welcome GB it is simply that the barrel is to short for the amount of powder in the case to fully burn. Make sure he cleans it out regularly or he might end up with a pipe bomb threaded on his barrel

Re: Tikka T3 build/bedding 61 months ago by G B Re: Tikka T3 build/bedding

Good morning gentlemen. I have been following several threads on here with interest and a comment Nathan made above has prompted me to join up and - where possible - join in. In the comment above Nathan refers to a discussion about double set triggers, now as this is a small obsession of mine I would be very grateful if someone could point me to that discussion. Meanwhile I will be considering further some of the discussion surrounding stock bedding. My interests are vintage and out of productio..

Re: Brass preparation for LRHunting (and DIES selection) 62 months ago by Alvaro Piqueras Alonso-Lamberti Re: Brass preparation for LRHunting (and DIES selection)

Hi all; Old thread, but iīm going slow, step by step. Someone have noticed I have had many problems with my sendero. Things start to go well, but you canīt relax too much! The other day i was reloading some rounds. During F-L process, i get a bit distracted, and a case mouth traps the decapping needle, bending the threaded rod (hornady die: it has a threaded rod where you screw the expander and the decapping needle). I just raise the handle and start again, after checking the case mouth. I didnī..

Re: new brass 62 months ago by Ronald Le May Re: new brass

Just a quick one I have discovered that NORMA brass has a rim thicker than the Lapua brass I use in this case the rims are 140 thou. So you should adjust your NK, FLS and Seating dies for this fact. It seems a bit harder than the Lapua brass as well I am triming mine to 2.161 for a 3.1410 COAL with BERGER 140VLD in 6.5 x 284. One point often overlooked by some as not that important is the primer pocket and the internal of the flashole. Standard practice for me with new brass is to uniform the po..

Re: concentricity tool 62 months ago by Rob Hughes-Games Re: concentricity tool

for a stand get a rod with a thread on the bottom. then a piece or steel or aluminium and drill two holes in it. one the size of the rod and the other the size of the dti stem area. drill a little hole at 90 degrees to each of these screws and use them for set screws to hold everything together. http://www.sinclairintl.com/reloading-equipment/measuring-tools/concentricity-gauges/sinclair-concentricity-gauge-prod37479.aspx

I just got through sliding the scope(left tightened in rings) from the rifle to check the length of the front scope base screw and I had put Loctite blue 242 on the scope base screws and the crossbolt screws of the Burris Signature bases and rings. Do I need to remove any of the loctite from the screw threads and thread holes before reusing and if so how to remove? Also I just remove the front screw from the front base,can I just put the screw back in the base and torque to specs of do I need to..

Re: 25-06 Rem twist rate for 117gr projectiles 62 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: 25-06 Rem twist rate for 117gr projectiles

I think that's a really good idea Ben- 26", then cut down to 24" later if you don't like it. Having said the above, the suppressor might make this a bit of an issue. You would want some meat at 26" before thread cutting. Can be a lot easier at 24". So you need to decide on whether you really want to fit the suppressor or experiment with the longer barrel, or fit a barrel with a bit of heft to it (e.g. True-Flite #2 contour barrel, specifically contoured to suit M14 thread at 26"). Just bear in m..

Re: 25-06 Rem twist rate for 117gr projectiles 62 months ago by Ben Grady Re: 25-06 Rem twist rate for 117gr projectiles

Thanks Nathan, 10" may be the safer bet for a 25-06 Rem. What about barrel length? 24" or 26"? Get a 26" and cut down later if it is annoying. Will I get anything more from a 26" length than a 24" for this calibre. A lot of internet thread reading says 24" minimum but 26" is better as the 25-06 is overbore. I will probably get it threaded for a suppressor as I have a 25cal suppressor already on my .303-25. cheers Ben

Re: new brass 62 months ago by Ronald Le May Re: new brass

Hi Thomas & Nathan You can neck size if using the brass in the same rifle but after a while you may find the case grows in length which requires the case to be trimmed and FLS'ed.(Bump the shoulder back) I usually FLS every 3rd firing in my 6.5/284 and trim every reloading. The secret to extended case life is to work up a load that gives the performance you require without running it hot, though in saying this Magnum cartridges do have a lower limit which it is advised not to load below. Whether..

Re: concentricity tool 62 months ago by Rob Hughes-Games Re: concentricity tool

get a piece of guage plate.(ground plate). 4 ball bearings around 1cm and a bolt (5cm) and 2 nuts. drill 4 holes in the plate so the ball bearings are almost touching. solder or epoxy them in to the holes. drill a hole between them at the end for the bolt. either drill and tap it or but a nut on each side of the plate. that bolt will be the backstop for the case. ideally the bolt is non threaded where the case rubs and is square. then either make a stand for the DTI or use a magnetic stand.

Hi all; Let me update this thread, FWIW. The rifle is performing, at least, well. I have put plenty of work in the rifle, following Nathanīs books. It has been bedded with Matchgrade bedding compound, lugs lapped, optics fit, barrel mantained as best as I can. Get some H4831sc, a bit fast, but it was the best I can get. Pushing 208 amax at 2870fps. I can improve my reloads a bit, just waiting to get some extra stuff. I have a pair of questions, in order to end the set up of the rifle, until I ca..

Re: Is more better? 63 months ago by sllindsay Re: Is more better?

I am just catching up on this thread. In reply to the question about copper fouling with TSX and TTSX bullets, I have been shooting them a lot in my 308 (130gr at 3000fps) for about a year and a half. I don't find they build up copper and worse than lead-core bullets in the same rifle. I have several rifles that are terrible with regular ammunition, so I know what bad fouling is like, but I have not had a problem with their use in the 308. sl

Re: Recoil reduction 64 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Recoil reduction

In my second book, I have put forward a useful method for determining bullet suitability for game. As far as the A-Max goes in 7mm, I tend to rate this as a 10% bullet based on this method. Sorry guys, I do not wish to delve further into the details here apart from to say that I do not suggest the 7mm A-Max as being "ideal" for Elk, but that it can be used succesfully at lower velocities and in the 7x57, this bullet can make for a good all around type of load where a wide range of game body weig..
