Re: new brass 61 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 61 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 61 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 61 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 61 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.

Re: Rem 700 sendero bolt (problems?) 62 months ago by Alvaro Piqueras Alonso-Lamberti Re: Rem 700 sendero bolt (problems?)

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 Nathan´s 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..

hopefully nathan along to help soon. but one that push's recoil straight back into shooter / stock that is inline with the barrel etc. if you have a look at the wood stock thread you'll see that one of the bell and carlson design comes up, might be worth look at. there also a thread called recoil reducers and stock design gets mentioned in there, hope it helps

Re: Is more better? 62 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 63 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..

Re: Recoil reduction 63 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Recoil reduction

Hi Dan, I have shot out to over 1000 yards without parallax adjustment on a very basic Leupold VX1 with 4-12x40 with retro fitted target turrets. Adjustable parallax is kind of a pain. One the hand, its another step that has to be taken before you can shoot (if the scope is fully reliant on parallax setting). On the other hand, without it, it can make long range shooting very difficult. For example, with my old 4-12x40, I had to be very careful about my eye position, otherwise the shot would be ..

Re: Recoil reduction 63 months ago by sllindsay Re: Recoil reduction

I was out of town so missed my chance to weigh in on this thread earlier. I won't argue caliber here (but I love my 308!), but I have some observations on platform. Nathan got me into using Rem 700 actions on semi-customs and I could not be happier. With a Timney trigger, they shoot like a dream (I have three). Since time is short for this season, I would suggest buying a Rem SPS in your desired caliber and find a load that will get you by for this season. Then in the off-season, bed it in an HS..

Re: Tikka T3 build/bedding 63 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Tikka T3 build/bedding

Sorry to be a pain Ben but I would like you to have a think about upping the trigger weight a half pound / quarter turn. Once we go below 1.5, things can go wrong. Cold mornings / evenings are the biggest problem where feeling is lost in the extremeties. Under these conditions, accuracy can be very poor, the trigger going off well before the hunter is settled. You may also find that accuracy is poor at 100 yards. Target shooters use very light settings of a half to 1lb but even then, my tests sh..

Re: Recoil reduction 63 months ago by Jim Moseley Re: Recoil reduction

You never stated your max range that you wanted to achieve. Since the Savage is easy to re-barrel, why not entertain the idea of the 6.5-o6. The 140 gr Amax is a very efficient bullet and can do lots of damage at long distance. The top barrel makers are building pre-threaded barrels that are top notch shooters. I would also go with a better stock. Personally, I'll will always be a fan of the 7 mag :-)

Re: Your thoughts on rebarreling a .338 Win Mag 63 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Your thoughts on rebarreling a .338 Win Mag

HI Bill, its funny how weight is a subjective issue. I went to check the weight of my .338 Edge for you. I build this rifle as a "medium" weight. It breaks the general rules of an Edge build and rather than a 30" full contour barrel, it has a basic 26" semi varmint contour onto which my forward port brake is fitted. Steph has been sniping cow pats with it of late, so the partial recoil reduction is quite fine with the forward ports- as long as the rifle is held properly. As for the weight. The c..

Your thoughts on rebarreling a .338 Win Mag 63 months ago by Bill Goodland Your thoughts on rebarreling a .338 Win Mag

It's time to re-barrel my .338 Win Mag. After reading some of Nathan's books, it is looking like I have a fairly average barrel on my Ruger MKII. The rust pitting towards the muzzle from a super wet (by West Oz standards) weekend hunt with a taped muzzle, may contribute as well.....lesson learnt there. Anyway I am stuck with barrel contour and length, I am leaning towards 26" and No. 4 contour. I still want to be able to hunt on foot with it, but also be able to shoot to a max of 1,000 yards usi..

Re: p 14 project 63 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: p 14 project

Hi Thomas, I suggest you go with a full diameter knox (A) at 1.23" for a length of 2", then taper down to .650" at 26". Arthur can make any final adjustments to the knox if need be. You can dock down to 24" later if the rig seems too long. A No.4 barrel would be nice to tame recoil but you talked about climbing high with the rifle so the #3 will make for an acceptable carry rifle for backpack hunting. If recoil proves to be unacceptable, you could dock the #3 barrel to 24" and fit a suppressor. ..
