Oops ! I've been a lazy bastard and started this thread before googling - Sorry. There is some info on the net, but I would still be interested in any first hand experiences.

Re: Cartridges for Fast Killing Inside 125 Yards 11 months ago by Kenneth Kephart Re: Cartridges for Fast Killing Inside 125 Yards

Ryan, Your build should be a thumper! You might also look into E.R. Shaw for your barrel and work. I've bought 2 barrels from them and absolutely love them! My 284 Win barrel, 24" polished, blued, 11 degree recessed crown in their 1.5 contour for my Mauser build was $272 shipped to my front door. Does make for a HEAVY rifle though. 10lbs scoped, no ammo. You can always thread the barrel for a brake. Another option is a recoil reducer in the buttstock. Essentially a mercury tube with an oriface i..

Re: Cartridges for Fast Killing Inside 125 Yards 11 months ago by Ryan Nafe Re: Cartridges for Fast Killing Inside 125 Yards

A couple questions for you guys, though I do think the answers are in the book: 1. Does anyone see major potential problems with going with a stock from Choate that has a full-length aluminum block? I believe the stock is made from fiberglass-reinforced polypropylene, similar to the Ramline military rifle stocks. At a minimum it could be said to be a solid improvement over the factory Savage stock (not exactly the highest praise :D ) and the particular design I’m looking at doesn’t have any unne..

Re: Sierra's new TGK (tipped GameKing) LR bullet 11 months ago by Luke Lahdenranta Re: Sierra's new TGK (tipped GameKing) LR bullet

Here is a thread from another forum with some further info on these new bullets. You have to sort the wheat from the chaff but towards the end if the thread there are some pictures of the bullets sectioned and compared to the ELD X . It appears that these bullets will follow the TMK vs ELD M in that they have a slightly thicker jacket and slightly larger and deeper hollow point and plastic tip than the ELD X. FWIW https://www.longrangehunting.com/threads/sierra-gamechanger-bullets.205659/

Re: 375 Ruger Handloads for Alaska 12 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: 375 Ruger Handloads for Alaska

I just want to clean this thread up a bit as it may be confusing for new players. Regarding the .375 cal Gameking (250 and 300gr). As many of you know, these have an extra thick jacket and tough core. Nevertheless, when used on large animals, it is all quite relative. If you have used a regular Gameking in a mild small bore on fairly large bodied deer, the performance is quite comparable (eg 7mm08 / 6.5x55 140gr). This bullet has the potential to produce very broad internal wounding when appropr..

following up another old thread... i had a play with the 208 amax a while back. the mag lenght in my marlin xl7 is 85.9 so i set coal to 84.9, max coal is 86mm, powder 2209. they shot ok, around an inch at 2200-2350fps. from 2350-2550fps, very poor, around 2-2.5". decided to try something different and loaded up some 168 zmax and 180 sst. wind was blowing 30-40kmh, so i didnt expect too much. surprise was the 58.5gr zmax load, av 2849fps, es 18fps. also i seem to remember not using a sling when ..

Re: Have a laugh! 12 months ago by Caleb Mayfield Re: Have a laugh!

Luck, Paul. On the Home page for the site there is that section that shows the two most recent posts. Because of the way this site functions, the posts in that box show up in kind of an unprocessed format so all the links and tags and formatting shows up. In the forum threads it shows up as processed html code so you don't see all the tags and such.

Re: Some 7mm Rem Mag Questions 12 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Some 7mm Rem Mag Questions

1. Hi Luke, I have tried throating the Rem Mag on two different barrels but it does not work so well. The jump is too long for the neck diameter and neck length. Just leave it as it is, it will be just fine. It just needs time. If you really want to ream it, go with the 7mm Practical. 2. Jim Mosely posted this in the LR thread: 180gr ELD-M RL26 / 67.3 grs Fed GM210M primers Rem Brass Length measure off the ogive / 3.750 .006 off the lands MV / 3019 fps You would need to start a lot lower and wor..

Re: Some 7mm Rem Mag Questions 12 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Some 7mm Rem Mag Questions

Hi Luke, yep, the little Tikka rifles can be a mongrel. If you can get into a groove with them, all good, if not, they have to be altered or moved on. The stock design is of course a major issue. Upgrades can work well- but then we have to get the bedding right which can be tricky. It all depends on how a guy wants to play it. In the Tikka vid, I worked with the gun as-is so as to not bust a guy's wallet having already laid out cash on his rifle. I worked with what I had in front of me. I proved..

Re: Sierra's new TGK (tipped GameKing) LR bullet 12 months ago by Aaron Peterson Re: Sierra's new TGK (tipped GameKing) LR bullet

So Sierra has now said that the minimum impact velocity for these will be in the 1800-2000fps range. So, not a great “long range” bullet, but I already knew that based on their construction. I just wanted to update this thread with that info.

Re: Accurizing a savage weather warrior w/ accustock 12 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Accurizing a savage weather warrior w/ accustock

Hi Dirk, on the Savage, you need to dscern whether the bore is producing high copper fouling or very little fouling. If the fouling is high, use the methods in the acurizing book and or the Rem 700 troubleshooting vid to work the bore into shape. If there is very little fouling as can happen with some Savage rifles, it may be dimensionally unsound. You are going to have to get past the hype of Savage shooters (I get the occasional fanatical email from them) and see this for what it is. The Accus..

hi Luke as soon as you see this "the three lug low lift bolt locks solidly into the barrel" it sends alarm bells ringing. you got to stop and think if the locks lugs aren't locking squarely then i will have to lap them and then that means every barrel will have to be lapped in, you can't really true the action either. you can also see that it's a switch barrel action using a c clamp style system. there no room to bed the whole clamp as the magazine is hard up against it and the tiny recoil lug t..

Yes, anyone hoping on this thread might wonder what the heck is going on, a .375" for deer? But we have our freedom of choice and again this thread is about curiosity. Those with an open mind will understand all sides of any arguments here. As a heads up, I have updated the Whelen page this morning, just a small update at the bottom, introducing the Hawk bullets along with notes on the bullet jackets. I have no experience with these projectiles yet, all current feedback is reliant on the couple ..

Re: Cartridges for Fast Killing Inside 125 Yards 12 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Cartridges for Fast Killing Inside 125 Yards

Shot placement is certainly a key factor as is bullet design. And as you said Mike, there is no need for more than a .308 inside 200 yards on these body weights but sometimes a guy just wants to experiment and this thread was based on boredom versus curiosity which I quite understand. Generally speaking Ryan, I teach readers to aim for the forwards section of the shoulder which gives room for error in both directions. You will see my comments on shot placement versus the customs of various count..

Re: Cartridges for Fast Killing Inside 125 Yards 12 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Cartridges for Fast Killing Inside 125 Yards

Hi Ryan, unless you have an injury or special circumstances, it can be best to put recoil out of your mind and focus on both stock design and technique as per the book series and also some of the videos we have been making. It is really hard to have it both ways. If you want a change in performance, then there needs to be a change in power, embrace it. The 7mm Rem Mag is for example my wife Steph's pet choice. However she has been so sick of recoil emails lately that she is going to put a 7mm Pr..
