Re: The truth about Jacinda 4 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: The truth about Jacinda

In case you missed my post on the Christchurch shooting, I am putting it here to. Hi guys, I am shutting this thread down also. No more. It is sad enough that so many people were killed and I know that this will never be over for their families. But I don't want this shitty situation to absorb any more of our time or energy. Today you can either worry and live in fear of things that are beyond your power and control OR you can get off your bloody computer and engage in a fun activity that actual..

Re: 7.62x39 vs 5.56x45 4 months ago by William Craig Re: 7.62x39 vs 5.56x45

You donít say where you are or what you plan to hunt, so itís difficult to fully assess which caliber would be best for you. I live in central Virginia, so my comments will be based on living and hunting here. Iíve not shot the 7.62x39 much, although I did mess with a .300 BLK for a while. I have shot the .223/5.56x45 a lot - from AR as well as bolt actions. It can do a lot, but it really isnít the best choice for hunting game weighing much over 50 pounds. The 7.62x39 and .300 BLK throw a much h..

Re: Mass Shooting 4 months ago by Steph Foster Re: Mass Shooting

Although this is a thread that started specifically because of the Christchurch tragedy I think that it is inevitable that conversations turn to the question of how to prevent this from happening again and of course how this should never have happened in the first place. Mark and John, you both believe that you have very different beliefs and political leanings. So what? They are just clothes that you wear on any given day. From where I am sitting, looking at you both from the outside I see you ..

Re: Mass Shooting 4 months ago by John D. Hays - New Mexico Re: Mass Shooting

Hi Mark, Thanks for the response to my post. You and I have a different view of what is going on with gun control, and that view will be different among people from other countries. So that would be interesting to discuss. Let's wait and see if anyone else wants to chime in. If so, we should move the discussion to another thread. This one is about the specific attack in Christchurch, about which many people are in shock and deep sorrow. Also, this happened in their home country and they must de..

Re: Nathan is ill 5 months ago by jason Re: Nathan is ill

Hi Nathan. It's been awhile since I have checked in here, I haven't been doing much shooting for a while, anyway... Sorry to see you weren't doing so well. Because my lack of shooting, I still do it but not as regular, I have mostly looked at general topics or off topics. I understand Steph's and your frustrations, simple topics getting beat to death when a thread search would probably solve ones gun related issues. But these days everyone wants an instant result, there need is of most important..

Some nice compassionate words in this thread. I could go on about how we should behave. Instead I will relay how I speak to my daughter on a daily basis. This is not easy for me as I am sharing our private life but here goes: I love you. You are so smart, so beautiful, so kind, you are amazing.

Hi John, Chris has made me a very pretty emerald green stock for my left handed Montana action (7mm Rem Mag) and I love it! So much so that when I finally get around to finishing my 7mm Practical project I am hoping that Chris will consent to making me another stock - colour undecided at the moment. I really rate Chris's stocks, he does good work. Hi Willie, Welcome to the forum. You are working in one of the places on the planet that I most want to visit.

Re: Long time Hunter/Shooter/Reloader Just Finishing Nathan's Books 5 months ago by Willy Bartel Re: Long time Hunter/Shooter/Reloader Just Finishing Nathan's Books

Hi Paul, I found a timney listed at Ellwood Epps. They've been into 303 in a big way for years they even have a Cartridge/Reamer named after them. 303Epps. Cleaning after the range...this has been a bugbear for a couple years since I mounted a scope and reworked the stock. The barrel is badly pitted and muzzle worn. I should probably cut a couple inches off and recrown. Can you confirm that it's the correct trigger? It's listed as TRIGGER ENFIELD SP E1-5 6-SHOT MAG. Item: MGA 111 Hmmm I found Th..

Re: 280 Ackley Recommended Projectile Weights 6 months ago by Iain Re: 280 Ackley Recommended Projectile Weights

Looks pretty good to me Vince. You should be happy with that. Just a couple of tips with the Montanas - if you already know, no harm done, but they may be helpful. I've owned a few of them and found some of this out the hard way. 1/ Kimber assembled many of the stainless 84Ls with the wrong front guard screw. For some reason best known to Kimber,they used the screw from the 84M which is .100" shorter. The result is only one turn of thread engagement in the action. The fix is a Rem 700 rear guard..

Re: New Load 6 months ago by Paul Leverman Re: New Load

Andrew - the following link has some outdated info, but does contain some powder comparisons, like using TraiBoss or SR4759, for reduced loads. It also contains a reference to the Lyman #49 manual. The Lyman loads start at 2403fps (IMR 4895/ AR2206H) up to 2717fps (BL-C(2)/AR2206); these are their starting loads. If you don't have the Lyman manual, I can scan it and post in the Test forum for you. Hope this will lead you somewhere: https://forums.gunboards.com/showthread.php?471417-SR-4759-for-r..

Mark i have been using cci suppressor rounds lately i can't rate them enough, they kill really well. the 22lr is an odd design in theory it shouldn't be as popular as it is, its heeled projectile (only centrefire i can think of that a heeled design is 310 cadet) and no freebore once again only one that comes to mind is the 22 hornet. what's interesting is how tight the saami spec match chamber is compared to the sporting spec one. mus..

Hi Guys, Not really the appropriate forum for this but I know there is a wealth of experience here. I've had a number of .22LR over the years, I'm often disappointed with the accuracy and move them on. The best I had was a savage rascal for my son but he out grew that one. I have a tidy heavy barreled Remington 597 semi auto in a Boyd type laminate stock. The accuracy is pretty ordinary with this one too. I've recrowned it and mock bedded it with auto filler receiver only, this eliminates the ba..

Interesting thread. I bought a .17 WSM for an upcoming moose-hunting trip. I havenít had time to shoot it yet, but it is supposed to be a very high velocity round for a rimfire. ďThe Savage Arms B.Mag Target rifle is chambered in 17 Winchester Super Magnum with a 8+1 capacity. It has an 22" stainless steel barrel and gray laminated thumbhole stock. The receiver and barrel have a stainless finish.Ē I understand that this can be an accurate rifle if properly bedded.

Re: Used Remington SPSís 7 months ago by Ryan Nafe Re: Used Remington SPSís

Bryan, itís not an actual discussion if the would-be participants arenít talking about the same things. When one person is talking about idea ďxĒ and the other is talking about idea ďyĒ, thereís not actually a dialogue going on. Itís just two people talking about entirely different things in the same thread. This is why itís so important to make sure both parties understand what itís in question, otherwise no progress is made. Youíd end up using time and effort without actually getting anywhere...

Re: 338 Federal specific 200 Woodleigh? 7 months ago by Paul Yates Re: 338 Federal specific 200 Woodleigh?

Regarding the original question. There's an Aussie in this thread who uses the 200 Woodleigh as his go-to projectile in 338 Fed for everything from fallow deer to sambar with consistently great results. https://www.24hourcampfire.com/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/topics/3634927/19 Some excellent load data and discussion in that thread as well. One of the best cartridge-specific discussions on the net, IMO.

I know this is an old thread, but I just can't help myself from posting because it seems to me the 338 Federal is being under-rated. Probably for good reason, because it seems the info is based on fairly old data, such as "Upper average velocities for the .338 Federal in a 22Ē barreled sporter include 2850fps with 160 grain bullets, 2650fps with 180 grain bullets, 2450fps with 200 grain bullets, 2400fps with 210 grain bullets, 2350fps with 225 grain bullets and 2250fps with 250 grain bullets."
