I had both a sako and a ruger that would not stay on a piece of foolscap at 100.
the aust agents for both rifles were missing in action...
yes ray it was a good talk.
a couple of old guys looking back.:LOL:
re17 is a stick powder, not unlike 2209 to look at, but a slightly different...
my use of re17 suggests that you need a little less than 2209, suggesting that re17 burns just a little faster.
re17 seems a little more temp...
a 400 gn swift aframe will more likely expand well and still not lose weight from the nose.
is there any need for a bullet heavier than 400 gn in...
personally I find more euroguns ugly, and some buttugly compared to most American rifles.
also the modern American boltgun has on average far...
oh ye of great trust:unsure:
maybe they have found some new powder technology that is not available to the public.
interestingly the 280 rem has slightly greater powder...
now that is the kind of knife a real hunter would use.
you might find 2920 optimistic in the 7x64 with 160 gn bullets at sane pressures with any sort of case life.
interestingly the british gun trade made a lot of high grade rifles on the p14/m17 action, albeit much modernized and unrecogniseable.
funny spitzers won't feed but round nose will.
it is usually the other way around.
the 286 gn 9.3mm partition is NOT a big game bullet.
the nose blows off immediately, and this not only reduces its weight immediately, but can...
looks rough to me, but that could be the picture.
the basic rifling looks good, but if rust has done its thing it will foul, and possibly not...
just another thought.
when the 303 was loaded with cordite, barrel life was compromised compared to more modern powders.
it was a very erosive...
polygonal barrels are definitely easier to clean due to being able to get at the total surface easier with brushes and patches on jags.
the old myth, promoted by forged barrel makers still persists.
truth is heat and flame, the things that actually wear out barrels, erode forged...
a good argument for dry firing,
in cold hard fact, what is a brno 600 action?
with a m70 type safety and a decent trigger added, it is a m70 win with mauser breeching.
and varget (ar2208)
45/70 bullets will be stable at the higher velocities of 458 win and lott, which probably also have faster twists than 45/70.
being designed for...
prior to the fal I think they made a 30/06 that looked more of the garand style.
maybe he went on safari to burkina faso and was not booked into international rescue.
well that sure outperforms both of my old 25/06 barrels.
and many of these anti meat eaters are also druggies.
and drugs are becoming more legal.
and they will be the end of civilization as we know it....
google battle of plevna to see how 44 cal levers were the assault rifles of their day in the hands of the turks.
don't start me on the earps, bat masterson, bill cody, or hickock, let alone custer , as human beings.
more legends that veer far from the truth....
call me an agnostic.
I would like to believe, but I can't.
modern marketing has made me cynical, as have modern politicians, and here I see both...
in the old days some people made claims, and the general populous just unthinkingly believed them.
nowadays people tend to look at evidence...
and a collet die fixing that problem will cause case head seperations.
I thought the 450 nitro used a 480 gn loading as std.
I know the kynoch original ammo I had used this bullet.
with regard the Winchester 50/110,...
just before the belt is not case head expansion.
this is measured on the belt.
you will often get quite big expansion on first firing a new belted...
it never hurts to recognize a wanker when you see one.
he just had the p.r. to get away with it
no enmity at all.
I am trying to come to grips with spin decay, and hoped you might have some knowledge on the matter.
getting poor prices for wildcat rifles translates into failure to convince the customer he needs it a lot.
do that and you can charge extra.(y)
have you tried brownells?
well that might sum the man up.
he also thought he had the right to shoot in national parks.
and people used to chase bears for him to shoot.
i'll bet he did a lot of dry firing.
john taylor admits to doing a lot of it as he walked around.
is that 1800 fps a muzzle velocity, or velocity at a range having decayed from a higher muzzle velocity?
if it is from a higher muzzle...
I was sure lt capped were available in normal rifle calibres.
would you be able to post a picture of one?
have you shot...
why not use a 338 barrel, and buy a chamber reamer to suit.
swaging down bullets seems a less than optimum thing to do for many reasons, not the...
ah yes, the explora cartridge.
I notice they recommend not using the stronger loads in the 96 mauser and krag.
while it is my belief that the 96 is stronger than the...
if they are anything like 9.3mm partitions, it might pay to have some swifts loaded just in case.
supposition by me.
this cartridge always had a good name as a killer of game.
I suspect much of this reputation came from the use of the l.t....
at the risk of making 2 enemies, I would like to enter this debate.
firstly cip and saami specs are easy to look up.
the problem in comparing...
that describes the usefulness of a silvertip well.
another cartridge that possibly got a good name from the l.t. capped bullet is the...
there are some, who do not understand, who equate the l.t. capped bullet to the Winchester silvertip.
nothing could be further from the truth.
but the Jeffery did not have the leslie taylor (l.t.) capped bullet.
in those days controlled expansion was little understood, and the bullet...
part of this cartridge's success was the l.t capped bullet.
used as a soft, it was light years ahead of std soft points in terms of controlled...
