Re: Setting up a older Remington trigger 4 days ago by Scott Struif Re: Setting up a older Remington trigger

Hi David. Most manufacturers nowadays use locknuts to secure trigger screw adjustments, then put a dab of glue on the locknuts to hold them in place, in the unlikely event they wander loose. Nail polish is recommended for home gunsmiths for that purpose. In your case, there are likely no locknuts. If you use blue Loctite on threads, you have to clean it and any oils that may have seeped into the threads, before reapplying it.. That could be difficult. Iíd adjust the screws to where you think wan..

Reloading...270 Winchester 7 days ago by Daniel Schindler Reloading...270 Winchester

Greetings. I am seeking your experienced opinions here. I already know that some (many?) of you have more reloading experience than I do and why I am posting. FWIW, Iím not a reloading newbie in spite of the fact that I was an English majorÖas was Mr. OíConnor in my defense. From .375 H&H all the way down to 6mm, Iíve successfully loaded MOA loads with the reasonably frequent 1 hole 3 shot group @ 100 yds. Maybe my handloading skills could be fairly described as intermediate with my triple check..

Re: Illuminated FFP 7 days ago by Nathan Foster Re: Illuminated FFP

Hi Scott, yes thats the trouble. When speaking to the head sheds at Sightron, they stated that the only way to really get FFP to work in low light at the current reticle thickness, is to use illumination. Their concern is that if they make the reticles thicker, customers will complain. My concern is that the customer is not always right and that illumination is just one more thing to go wrong. Its nice to have it as an extra option, not the only option. The following is an edited cut and paste f..

More of Andy's 12 days ago by John D. Hays - New Mexico More of Andy's "Have a Laugh"

It seems that Andy's "Have a Laugh" thread is locked up --- too much mirth. If some Webmaster can unlock it, then we could keep all this absolutely priceless and intelligent humor together. In the meantime, I will try to post a story my mother told me long ago about life in the middle of the 1930s Dust Bowl.

Re: 200gr Muzzle velocity 1 month ago by Nathan Foster Re: 200gr Muzzle velocity

Ha, fun to stir... OK, at .177 height, 100 yard zero, 3035, Alt 1900ft, Sierra says 8.2 while shooter says 8.3. Either way its dial up 8 MOA plus one click for 550 yards. So basically this is merely adding confusion to matters. At 12 inches of extra height at 550 yards, you have somehow gained just over 2 MOA or two extra inches height at 100 yards. So what we are looking for is something dramatic, a major change in POI. I am really sorry Matt but you may have to pull the target back to 100 and ..

Re: Long Range Considerations 1 month ago by Scott Struif Re: Long Range Considerations

When I discovered this website a year and a half ago, I realized how ignorant I was about terminal ballistics. That you can hit an 8Ē gong at a given distance doesnít mean you can make an ethical shot. I had assumed my 30-06 was deadly as far as I could accurately place the shot. My personal best was a 450-yard shot on a pronghorn with a 150-grain cup-&-core at a pedestrian MV. I recovered the unexpanded bullet from the heart. (Nathan explained to me in another thread why that happened . . . low..

Re: People Complaining About Recoil 1 month ago by Ben Law Re: People Complaining About Recoil

tons of 223's - 308's come with brake's or threaded muzzle these days, which kinda sucks, i don't trust threaded muzzles for long term accuracy particularly when they are much smaller than the barrel diameter.

Re: Head shot 1 month ago by Joshua Mayfield Re: Head shot

In late 2017 and early 2018 we had a thread going titled "Neck Shots on Medium Game with Frangible Bullets." I think there was some overlap with this discussion. In that thread I explained my parameters for taking certain shots. I re-read them this morning. They still sound theoretically okay. I mentioned the stomach-sick feeling of taking a bad shot and wounding a deer in passing, but it was definitely a past tense mention. In fall of 2018 I got cocky and careless, feeling good about having snu..

Re: Speer projectiles? 2 months ago by Simon Crowther Re: Speer projectiles?

Thanks for that Nathan. Actually I've posted this thread in the wrong place, I'm not after long range precision ammo, just decent hunting ammo. I am very fussy though, I can't stand the thought of maiming an animal. My normal ammo with either Sierra Pro-Hunters or Hornady SSTs is shooting great. I suppose I've always been very lucky with reloading and so far have always managed to load very accurate ammo, this is the first challenge that I've had. I'll have a rest from reloading while I have a t..

Re: Remington bankruptcy 2 months ago by Paul Leverman Re: Remington bankruptcy

Interesting link there, Scott. Lots of good and not so good info. The usual mixture, and then the usual animosity common to internet threads. Two posts caught my attention: the modified stock pictures and the formula. Looking at the stock mods, the size, shape, and location of that "anti-torque lever" gives me the idea that torque cannot be a major factor, unless using a free recoil shooting technique. That stock extension, in my opinion only, could easily be replaced by a firm grip (Hold that f..

Re: Remington bankruptcy 2 months ago by Scott Struif Re: Remington bankruptcy

Which is probably why Nathan recommends front/rear bedding for amateurs with flat-bottom receivers. When I was researching torque, I ran across an article that said bedding the first couple inches of the barrel ahead of the receiver actually came about because Mauser and its clones located the front receiver screw in the recoil lug. Torquing that action screw caused the action to be bent downward, ahead of the bolt lug recesses, resulting in uneven contact of the bolt lugs. So Winchester relocat..

Re: Remington bankruptcy 2 months ago by Scott Struif Re: Remington bankruptcy

Hi, Paul. I found a forum thread where a guy who shoots 45-70 535 grain says his gun torques to the shooterís left as much as 45 degrees. I assume itís a RH twist. (3rd post from the top.) http://forum.accurateshooter.com/threads/rifle-torque.3965858/page-1

Re: Remington bankruptcy 2 months ago by Paul Leverman Re: Remington bankruptcy

Another reason why round receivers are popular: machining multiple recesses and surfaces true to each other. Once the work piece is chucked, any machining will be relevant to the centre/bore line, resulting in true to centre threads, lug recesses, shoulders; thereby enhancing potential accuracy. But having said all that, with the new CNC processes, all this may not be applicable any longer.

Re: Fiocchi Extrema 3 months ago by BH Re: Fiocchi Extrema

This thread is aging a little but I have just become aware of Fiocchi's Extrema ammunition using Hornady's SST projectile, and Googling around has brought me all the way back to an old favourite website. Talking specifically .270, I used Hornady's 140grain BT Interlock bullets years ago to good effect - and my experience aligns with what I've read on TBR - very accurate, great BC, and with careful placement they're fast killers - but no end for end shots on deer with them! Lately I've decided I ..

Re: 195gr TMK performance and minimum expansion threshold 3 months ago by Ian Re: 195gr TMK performance and minimum expansion threshold

This thread is of particular interest to me. On my to do list of projects is building a 195TMK load for my 308, specifically intended for longer range cross gully shots at sambar. Previous work with the 175TMK in this rifle gives me hope that I will see 2500, maybe 2550fps from the 195 which should keep impact velocity above the 1800 fps wall out to at least 500, hopefully 600 yards - more than far enough for my purposes. I will try to dual load this with a closer range load using the 165 Swift ..

Re: RIfle Slings 3 months ago by Frank Vallich Re: RIfle Slings

To conclude this thread the following observations. The RS3 sling provides a secure cross body carry allowing freedom of movement. Both arms are available for deployment for whatever task is at hand. An example is having the rifle available while walking with a 20 gauge while shooting grouse. THe BEST feature is the ability to drop to one knee and have stability. No need to insert the support arm through a loop as the sling rides up under the left arm and secures the the rifle into the firing po..

Re: .25/06 loads 4 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: .25/06 loads

One more thing Mike, being a very old rifle, chances are that the throat is getting somewhat worn now. best to give it a quick birthday (polish) before going further ahead. Once the throats become worn, it can pay to use a projectile with a longer bearing surface. In a worn tang safety model with 24" barrel, properly bedded, lugs in full contact, mag box floated, a 100 grain BTSP may hit its sweet spot at velocities of around 3300fps or higher (especially with Superformance powder). It pays to w..

Re: Inquiry re: Copper Fouling with the SST 4 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Inquiry re: Copper Fouling with the SST

Hi David, just a couple of important points to go over first. Never shoot 10 shot groups with this rifle, that is to say, do not let this barrel get hot. If you want to put 10 shots on a target, try to keep the rifle at ambient temps all the way through (up to an hour or more). If you want to test to see how the rifle holds its zero under pressure (for follow up shots on game), perform this session once, after developing your optimum load. Do not use scotchbrite on this particular chamber. This ..
