    Carbon fouling on muzzle crown

    I found the same in my AI .308 barrel. I had nearly 1000 rounds through it before thinking to remove the brake and clean the crown. It had a thick layer of carbon build up on it. I cleaned it by sticking the tip of the barrel into an ultrasonic cleaner with a solution of citric acid (lemon...

    Changes to UK gun laws

    Yes our laws suck. They were trying to ban our 50 cals as well but we managed to hang on to them........ Rifle shooting is a minority sport in the UK so we are an easy target for liberal politicians looking to make a name for themselves.

    Best hot weather full face motorcycle helmet?

    I’m using Bell carbon lids now. Lightweight, lots of vents and a really wide field of vision so they don’t feel claustrophobic. I used to wear Arai but I think the Arais are due some modernisation. https://www.sportsbikeshop.co.uk/motorcycle_parts/content_prod/263962

    Tangent Theta in Spuhr - Parallax Binding

    Really dumb point to make here but are you all sure you aren't overtightening the spurh mounts and bending the tubes? Please don't flame me but the Spurh has multiple bolts (very similar to the forks on a motorbike) and what can happen is as you torque one of them, the others will then seem...

    308 Beyond 1K YARDS

    Max I've shot mine to is 1400 yards. About 1 hit in 8 at that range and lots of dirt sprayed on the gong from rounds coming in at a high angle and falling short. It's like playing the lottery at that range with .308, more like firing artillery. 178 is the heaviest bullet I've tried, don't...

    308 Beyond 1K YARDS

    I've found 178 ELDMs to be scary accurate to 1000 yards with the .308. 1000 yards is easy with them and I can consistently hit a 12 inch steel plate. 1200 is a lot more difficult. My rifle is an AX, 24 inch, 12 twist barrel. Pushing the bullet at 2770 over 44.5 grains of RS52, Lapua Brass...

    308 Beyond 1K YARDS

    Lapua recently revised the BC on this bullet to .460. I've shot this bullet to 1000 and .460 entered into JM Ballistics is spot on for drop.

    Tangent Theta in Spuhr - Parallax Binding

    Mmmm.......that’s disappointing in a scope that costs thousands. You shouldn’t have that uncertainty that you can break it on a PRS barricade. I’ve actually dropped my AXMC off a bench with my PM2 mounted in a Spurh and the rifle landed on the eyepiece (stock was folded at the time). After my...

    Question for all you AI Guys I have the AXMC Long action rifle and just have the .308 barrel at the moment. I've ordered the .338 barrel and conversion kit as well but I'm planning on just switching the muzzle brake between the 2 of them for the time being until my wallet cools off and I can...

    6.5 vs. 308

    I was in a similar position 6 months ago. I bought an AI rifle in .308 as we can't get them from the factory with the 6.5 barrel in the UK. I was new to the long range game but the .308 is a great cartridge to learn with. It recoils and the wind moves the bullet around so you really learn how...

    Does anyone know the Cerakote code for AI Flat Dark Earth colour? I want to get my mod done to match the barrel. Thanks!

    Schmidt and Bender: is it time to cut my losses

    My S&B 5-25 PM2 has been bulletproof. Even managed to drop the rifle off a bench in the the drag bag the other day and smash the scope cap with no damage to the eyepiece. It still put the first cold bore round through the V bull, the zero didn't move. They are the gold standard for a...

    Accuracy International Picture Thread

    I’ve got a mag adapter in black on a Dark Earth rifle. Mine just came that way from the factory as I ordered the AXMC long action in .308. You can see the left hand side of the adapter where the mag cut out sits. I wouldn't worry about it though. I think it looks bad ass and breaks up the...

    I'm glad I don't live in England anymore.

    I think the media has a lot to blame in this. Our left wing media portrays the US like it's the Wild West....everyone wearing a gun on their hip and bullets flying every time you go to the shops. Whenever I've been to the US I have always had a good experience and found everyone to be very...

    I'm glad I don't live in England anymore.

    Yes you make a very good point.....we had a famous case of a 70 year old farmer shooting a burglar dead a few years ago and the farmer ended up in prison. That is fucked up. We have had a lot of stabbings but the part of the story you might not see in the US is that 95% of them happen in a...

    I'm glad I don't live in England anymore.

    Good to see you are all open to new ideas and points of view from a different country. I simply make a point on a forum and have been attacked by several people I don't know and have never met. Thanks guys.
