Re: BSA CF2 in 30-06, Rebarrel  to 35 Whelen ? 45 months ago by Warwick Marflitt Re: BSA CF2 in 30-06, Rebarrel to 35 Whelen ?

Sorry but :0 It doesn't work like that. Hit it like you mean it ! You watch a fencer or builder hitting in nails. They use a full swing to get the most kinetic energy into the hammer so that the nail gets driven into the wood! Swinging the hammer head hard and fast makes it really ring and sends a high energy Ping of vibration through the steel and the tapered pin just pops open.A heavy hammer just bruses and deforms the metal....... Make sure you leave the castle nut loose over the threads so t..

Re: P-14 found in the bottom drawer 45 months ago by Paul Leverman Re: P-14 found in the bottom drawer

In a previous conversation with one gunsmith, and from comments made here, I tried to find a barrel with a larger diameter, somewhere around the 1.325" that is "spec" for the P-14. But, as we all know about specs, they are open to interpretation. I did find one barrel maker in Alberta who can supply me with a 1.3" barrel, and everyone else can supply 1.250", of course. In talking to one supplier, he pulled some "drop-in" or "pre-fit" off the shelf and measured them while we were on the phone. It..

Re: two twist rates one barrel???? 46 months ago by Warwick Marflitt Re: two twist rates one barrel????

THREAD HIJACK sorry guys. The recoil will be horrendous. I am only using my own thoughts to analysis this and may be totally wrong! My thoughts are that as powder burns the pressure builds and recoil builds progressively. Similar to the hp torque curve of a petrol engine as rpm increases.. An electric motor makes maximum torque at zero rpm. So the rail gun will smash hard as it reacts to the input of energy. Then again its probably possible that it would fire a 10 grain bullet at 7,000 fps. Put ..

Re: Devcon is cheaper..... 46 months ago by Cor Nepgen Re: Devcon is cheaper.....

Hi All, I just finished bedding my .30 06 M700 with the Match Grade Bedding Compound. I don't have any experience with other kinds of epoxy or other kinds of alternatives. It took me two tries to get it (My mistakes not the product.) I think apart from the product being exceptionally nice to work with, the amount of information on how to go about the job is really thorough. This forum has a lot of info in threads, the videos and book really cover all the basis. So for me the support and advice a..

Re: P-14 found in the bottom drawer 46 months ago by Paul Leverman Re: P-14 found in the bottom drawer

I see, says the blind man. It is not the threads. It is the shoulder diameter. Yes, this could be very problematic. Time to start looking for barrel makers.

Re: P-14 found in the bottom drawer 46 months ago by Paul Leverman Re: P-14 found in the bottom drawer

Thomas - re-reading your first response, and you mentioned that the barrel tenon was a problem in regards to the blank diameter. Do you have the diameter of your action threads? Mine measure out to the point where a standard 1.240" barrel will do just fine. I may be a little bit out on the numbers, but by calculation it seems that they are 1.125" X 10TPI, square threads.

Re: P-14 found in the bottom drawer 46 months ago by Paul Leverman Re: P-14 found in the bottom drawer

I wish I could show you what I see, but unfortunately my optical equipment belongs on the ark. I'll try to describe it starting with the bolt. In comparing the marks on the P-14 lugs with lugs on my Ruger (that I know are lapped) they are very similar. Clean lines, extending into any pits that are present. Bright steel, but not a mirror-like gloss like hammered steel. The edges of the lugs show what I believe to be the original relief cuts. They are rough-ish and discoloured (black) inside the m..

hi Paul. that's a good score i'm lucky to find a stapler in my desk draw i think your talking about the thread for my p14 project so ill try give you as much info as i can. if your rifle is a p14 the bolt face is designed for the 303 brit rim so there no need to open it up for the belted magnum cases. if its got a p17 bolt it'll need work. i got a 308 norma magnum reamer made by mason reamers to suit the 208gr amax's the coal for this set up is longer then the standard C.I.P specs. if you wanted..

Re: Three rifles enough? 46 months ago by Mike Dewey Re: Three rifles enough?

I'd hoped this to be more a "what do I use for what I do" kind of thread rather than "what's in my locker". Otherwise I'd mention my oddballs: the 1883 Winchester in 45-70-405 or the H&R Garand trainer in 22LR. Favourite long range or practice or close and personal? Or whatever you use in competition. How have you worked on them to make them work better at what they're for?

Lol. The piston speed of a 2.25 4cyl Landrover @ 4280 rpm is 2,500 ft /min! (41.66fps) What you have to remember is that they where built as an Expeditionary vehicle. Driven like a donkey and cart over rough terrain you'll get to your destination every time. Drive like a Cock chasing a hen and you deserve to fail! Low range first gear idle and you'll get nearly vertical and they ride like a Rolls Royce with 16 psi in the tires on rough roads and river beds. They need to be on 750/16 SAT original..

Re: BSA CF2 in 30-06, Rebarrel  to 35 Whelen ? 46 months ago by Thomas Kitchen Re: BSA CF2 in 30-06, Rebarrel to 35 Whelen ?

this thread really does make interesting reading. not sure how hard it is to do a second chamber cut from 35 whelen to 35 whelen improved, as there's always an option of starting with one then going to the improved, but its a lot of hassle when you could just start with the improved one. first thing i thought when i saw the thread talking about improved whelen was it makes dies hard to get. a quick search shows both rcbs and redding make improved whelen dies. there's the lee custom collet and se..

This is the thread that just keeps giving huh. OK, I did order an AI reamer and all the reamers cleared customs a few hours ago. Warwick, you were toying with the idea of having the barrel longish to keep velocities up. If you do go this way and and also go with the AI, it will make a wee bit of a difference and give you some powder BD versatility. The AI cases will last a long time and you can still run factory ammo through it- if NZ is ever properly re-supplied. The fireforming is no big deal ..

Re: Ruger Precision Rifle, barrel options 46 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Ruger Precision Rifle, barrel options

Hi Randal, good to hear that the factory barrels are going well. Ruger has come a long way in recent years, showing a major improvement in overall barrel quality since the release of the Hawkeye rifle. One thing I need to say guys, is that of late the subject of fast change barrels has been coming more and more to the fore within the realms of my own research and among peers. One of the problems people are beginning to find is that the faster you can change the barrel, the more there is to go wr..

Hi Gerry, there is a test page you can play on. When you get an image uploaded to photobucket (full image, not the thumb), look to the right of the screen for the code. Click on the code and it will automatically copy. Note, it pays to have the image sized to web large before uploading otherwise it can make a forum thread display oddly after displacing all of the other components on the page. Plus it then makes the page hard for people to view if they have a slow connection. On these forums and ..

Re: Anschutz 1710 High End .22lr 46 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Anschutz 1710 High End .22lr

Another interesting discussion. The primary point that we need to take into consideration is that you cannot hand load a .22 and tune loads to the barrel. Options include testing a range of ammo- which can be a pain if you are a culler / commercial hunter and need to focus on only a few brands of budget ammo or those that kill the best as apposed to small hollow point types. Or as suggested (and a great idea), weight sort your ammo. Beyond this, you have little control besides the usual bedding ..

Re: SMLE synthetic stock 46 months ago by Sako08 Re: SMLE synthetic stock

Thanks Nathan - I am eagerly awaiting my delivery of some more compound so I can do a separate mix to fill these areas, have used the time to key up the fill areas (per you diagram above) with a hot wire and plan out the rest of the job as best I can. I had heard some not so great reports about these stocks prior to getting into this and I can now see why - still, it is going to make for an interesting challenge! I will keep you posted on progress via this thread. Cheers, Pete
