    I guess this plan works

    IF one could buy new each year but there AIN'T no 6X scopes with the parameters necessary for HBR shooting being made today and those who have made them in the past no longer have "parts" for the...

    I have nearly a Keg

    of SMP 735 I've been sitting on for a few years. I figured in a pinch it might come in useful :). It will make guns go boom and make bullets fly. Commercial re-loaders use it so it for sure works....

    I'm looking to the Going Forward

    there are always old scopes out there but neither Burris or Sightron have any parts for the older scopes they say and friends of mine have had no luck dealing with Leupold on HBR scopes. Not many...

    The problem with the old stuff

    is no parts to fix them. Sure, they have a lifetime guarantee but what good is it if it messes the bed and it will mess the bed and the company won't fix it? I've been through this with a couple of...
  7. I have not measured the primers

    but they have been trued up with a standard SR uniformer I have been using for the 20 or so years I've been benchrest shooting, it not ever have been a problem in any of the other dozen or so BR...

    I have a Cut barrel

    on my latest rifle and it hasn't attracted any copper at all, in about 600 rounds without any treatment at all. It will shoot all day without cleaning as well (6BR). I decided to go with the Tony...

    No,

    I put it in the gun safe until I get home in the spring. There is something in the path between the trigger and the cocking pin that seems to be interfering but I'll be dern if I can see what it is....

    The problems

    With the March are a few. 1. The 1/4" clicks, 2 Lack of Reticle choices. 3. the extra weight. While one could whittle a barrel down it would be hard to make weight with this scope. What is the point...

    Right

    He who measures everything, keep meticulous notes and intermittently tests after something is established, gets things done. There is no substitute for precise. I've been preaching this for how many...

    The Problem is Tim

    NONE of the scope manufacturers are currently making 6X scopes that fit into the parameters necessary at any price! Not even your coveted Leupold, nor will they do any custom work on their own...

  16. Looking for someone to work on my Air Arms EV2

    My EV2 developed a big air leak some time ago and I haven't been able to find out where it's leaking. Can someone recommend a person who might fix this rifle for me please?

    Thanks Asa

    the inside of the bolt and firing pin mechanism are dry and without any lubrication at all. I cleaned it when I bought it. I never lube the inside of a bolt. This one is a different problem. I'm...

    Stevens 200 Woes!

    I have a Stevens 200 .223 that has stopped shooting. I've done everything I know to make it shoot but it will not ignite a primer. Uncocked, the pin protrusion is .055" but the pin will not touch the...

    6 es

    I have started a new chapter in my Benchrest life, a 6 BR Varmint Hunter rifle! I decided, on a whim last winter, to build a 6MM rifle to shoot in the Varmint Hunter IBS class. Did it around a 700Rem...
  22. I've been getting

    not all that much indentation in my SR primers with .055" pin tip protrusion, actually had to increase it by .005" to get them to fire in that rifle. I'm quite sure 30 to 40 thou wouldn't do it in...

    Some have to keep learning the lesson

    of staying two years ahead on components. No other way to do it if one wants to be able to shoot. If folks are new and not experienced shortages, let this time be a lesson and remember it.

    Interesting;

    usually sodium is a no no with heart issues. I have the same issue, to a lesser degree. My Dr. told me to use slightly more salt to get it up a bit. It worked.

  25. Stan dropped out

    Don't know why. He HAS some Youtubes on the bolt timing that were very well done and relocating the bolt handle for extraction. SGR.
