Re: Cartridges for Fast Killing Inside 125 Yards 12 months ago by Thomas Kitchen Re: Cartridges for Fast Killing Inside 125 Yards

Hi Ryan i have been reading this thread progress with interest. at first i did think the humble 270 would excel, i use one as a general hack and have found both 150gr interlocks and partitions handloads can give you a real wow factor. i use to use hornady 130gr whitetail interlock factory loads with success not sure if its much different to 308 win results though. anyway after reading that you have been given a 25-06 i had quick google search for prefit 35 whelen barrels for a savage and seems t..

I feel your pain man. My Galaxy S5 is atrocious for spell check and autocorrelation... case in point. Who ever write autocorrect and expects to have actually written autocorrelation? I have created the thread :)

I was just having a look at cleavers website. If only i was right handed, 300wm howa varmints barreled actions 499... some good deals on rem700 5r milspec's too. But bugger me, every 20 inch barrel 308 i saw comes with a threaded muzzle, seems like nearly everything one there had a threaded muzzle.

Re: Some new steels for knife makers 13 months ago by Cor Nepgen Re: Some new steels for knife makers

Hi Warrick, Thank for the advice, think I'll save myself the experimenting with D2 haha. I must be honest, I like the way a patina builds up on steel but have never considered how this will influence the handle materials from an aesthetic perspective.. Food for thought.. I think you are on to something with the Chef knives in superblue, that just sounds like an amazing application for that steel. Sharpening knives are half the fun for me, between freehand stones and the sharpmaker I tend to have..

Re: Some new steels for knife makers 13 months ago by Cor Nepgen Re: Some new steels for knife makers

Hi Warrick, Thank you for posting your findings and this thread, I have become very interested in different steels and enjoy comparing them as an interest. I must stay, you are quite brave making a knife from S110v. My daily carry is a spyderco Manix 2 in S110V for the last two years or so. My experience with different steels is obviously much more limited than you, so far I have 8CR13MOV, VG10, 52100 and S110V. My experience is pretty much as you describe above. It will cut and keep on cutting ..

Parker Hale Rebarrel 13 months ago by Rod Smillie Parker Hale Rebarrel

Hi all I have a Parker Hale Majestic in 30-06 that I am considering rebarrelling in 30-06 as I have really enjoyed shooting it. It does shoot okay but am keen to extend it to a 500m rifle. I am not sure of the thread dimensions and what barrels would be appropriate. The action on the rifle is a mauser that was used before PH started making their own. Any advice gratefully recieved. Cheers Rod

I know this is an old thread but I finally found a good source for CRC 350 & 400 at a reasonable price in Canada. Acklands Granger. If they don't have it in store they will bring it in within a few days. Around $15 a can as opposed to $40 inc shipping on Amazon.

Re: .44 RM performance on medium-sized game 14 months ago by Jean Dupuis Re: .44 RM performance on medium-sized game

I'm ready to spend some money on good ammo for hunting, that's not a problem. As the Hornady FTX delivers good performance, I'll take it. Sadly, no cheap "cowboy loads" are available here in France, so either you plink with your own reloads, or you use lower quality hunting ammo like soft points rounds that can be found for around ~30€ or 35€ /50. It is quite costy, but for someone like me who wishes to have a decent hunting/plinking rifle it is in fact quite good. The only thing I still ask mys..

Re: Cold weather hunting ballistics, and feedback on my first custom rifle build. 14 months ago by Nathan Foster Re: Cold weather hunting ballistics, and feedback on my first custom rifle build.

Hi Scott, the actual switch barrel concept can be hit and miss, especially in these environments. Yes, I know its popular these days, especially in tactical rifles- but so are bubble levels mounted in places where they are of no use. A major problem with switch barrels, is that in order to be able to make the switch, the barrel threads need to be loose enough that they can be undone by hand, often using a grub screw as a retainer. The trouble with this is that changes in temp can allow the syste..

Sierra 85 gr HPBT Gameking 14 months ago by Luke Lahdenranta Sierra 85 gr HPBT Gameking

I am about to set up and load for my Tikka 243, I am looking for a bullet that could serve as a benchmark for the performance of the 243 Win cartridge on deer at ordinary hunting ranges, let's say 300 yards or so. Reading over the Knowledgebase here as well as other threads on the 243 the bullet that seems to get recommended over and over again is Sierra's little .243 85 gr HPBT game king. This little bullet is supposed to kill deer very quickly but as 7mm/.30 guy used to heavier bullet weights ..

Hi Marcos, This thread may help you make a comparison. Keep in mind that the pads will not be this level of grit for long... there is a reason scotch brite pads don't come with a grit rating but rather a finish rating... http://www.ballreviews.com/miscellaneous/scotch-brite-pads-grits-t125883.0.html [http://www.ballreviews.com/miscellaneous/scotch-brite-pads-grits-t125883.0.html] Cheers mate.

Sightron SIII 6-24x50 LRMD or LRMOA and with IR or not and FFP or SFP? 15 months ago by Rainer Keller Sightron SIII 6-24x50 LRMD or LRMOA and with IR or not and FFP or SFP?

Hi All, I am looking for two scopes for my 300 Win Mag and a 6.5 PRC, both rather light with plastic stocks (soon to be bedded). Nathan's Sightron/Nightforce bug bit me and now I am considering selling my Burris Veracity 4-20 to get better tracking. My understanding from the Long Range Rifles book was that MOA is preferred, and from some comments here that FFP is not high on Nathan's list (bit I don't know why) and IR is neither (because it's just fancy but mostly useless?). But now I saw in the..

Thank you for the links, Nathan. Good stuff indeed. Not to hijack the thread....but taking a fellow employee to the range tomorrow. Going to start her on the 22lr and then onto the TrailBoss loads in my 243 (might as well let her do the fireforming). Back to the thread.....the TrailBoss loads for any of my rifles are really good for trigger control and breath control practice before moving up to full loads. Most enjoyable to shoot.

Thanks, Everyone. As always, the feedback here is solid, sensible, and politely communicated. I'm starting to think this is the only courteous place left on the internet. As you guys point out, the .270 makes sense on several levels and offers great value. Mike and Hamish, I do reload. You guys are right on the money - I'd be getting to know the light bullets for a while as my son grew into the rifle. He likes to shoot now and I sure don't want to ruin it for him.
