Re: concentricity tools 53 months ago by Ben Law Re: concentricity tools

Quote:I use a Sinclair Concentricity Gauge on Nathan's recommendation. The case sits on top of two pairs of ball bearings for support & is simple & accurate. Really happy with it. I ordered the unit from the states. here's the link to a Youtube promotional clip; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTkjkhKoE9U I looked at the design of the Hornaday unit & thought it was poor. I could see how it could give you errors & be miss leading as it relies on the base of the case being true from memory... not ..

Re: Tikka T-3 chamber size and resizing 53 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..

hi bert after reading your post i done a little bit of research as i was wondering if the ctr bottom metal could be modify for the trg42 magazine for the magnum tikkas, don't think its possible. how ever came across these http://www.atlasworxs.com/cart/index.php?act=viewProd&productId=11 its bottom metal that will accept the accuracy internal mags which may be a cheaper option. one of the forum members used one of there straight replacement ones that accept the standard tikka mags on his rifle. ..

Re: BRNO ZKK Project 53 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 54 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..

Re: Maintenance Lubrication and Copper Questions 54 months ago by Timothy Good Re: Maintenance Lubrication and Copper Questions

I know this thread is a little long-in-the-tooth but I just ran across this test of a bunch of lubrication products that seemed relevant. 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. But the heavier grease you are using now sounds like the best medicine for longer stints when the gun is ..

Re:  Nathan,Bore guide for cleaning rod ? 54 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Nathan,Bore guide for cleaning rod ?

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 54 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 54 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!

Re: Sweets7.62 55 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Sweets7.62

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 ..

Re: 338wm load development 55 months ago by Buck Slammer Re: 338wm load development

Hi Martin, it wasn't my intention to offend anyone. So, I am sorry. You are quite right and I will withdraw from any argument with you or anyone else. Are you Australian? Do you hunt Sambar? I do, and I was applying my knowledge of the animal and the terrain familiar to the majority of Sambar being pursued by hunters. Because a shot on Sambar infrequently results in that grand creature dropping on the spot. And in that terrain if they even run a short distance they are obscured by heavy vegetati..

Re: 338wm load development 55 months ago by Buck Slammer Re: 338wm load development

Hi Nathan, I mustn't have read the entire thread closely enough and missed the intermediate long range requirement, however the Partition isn't too shabby as that front section is quite soft and does lots of damage and supposedly works down to 1800fps. The problem with the standard 338 is that it starts out slow to begin with so that 1800fps isn't that long a distance perhaps, at least with the 250gn slug. Anyway, I am curious about your work so I just ordered your entire collection. I am hoping..

Hi, thanks to all who responded. I believe I have located the answer is a thread titled "Best WSM and/or 600 yd Elk Slayer" in the Long range hunting and shooting category of this forum. Nathan suggested the Winchester Extreme Weather in 300 WSM. Perfect - not too heavy, not too light and I love that action. Although, if someone could help with their personal knowledge regarding the magazine box and if it is long enough to seat those long and heavy A-max bullets in the 300 Win Mag (not WSM) and ..

Re: Tikka T3 vs Browning X Bolt 56 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Tikka T3 vs Browning X Bolt

The question becomes a bit more difficult when we want to shoot long. This is the crux of the matter. Once we reach out, we find that smaller things make a big difference. For example, a light rifle that recoils heavily will produce fliers in the field if technique is not exact and identical with each shot, regardless of what the rifle is capable of at the bench. Such a rifle will not perform so well with a bipod either, shifting around 1 MOA from shot to shot with changes in terrain / ground ha..

Thank You Nathan! The internet can be a source for a wealth of information, such as this very site. Howsomever, there are times when I think we should have a button on our keyboards that is labeled "Bullshit Eliminator". Which is the prime reason why I don't last long on many of the websites they have out there pertaining to hunting. It never fails, somebody posts about for example the killing power of a 380 pistol on Cape Buffalo. The question in itself has to come from a mad man. But not to wo..
