    Anybody else hate the gym?

    Bud you are doing it all wrong. Hire a really hot instructor, that will motivate you LOL. If you don’t like the gym, look for something completely different like hiking. You’ve got some seriously amazing mountains not too far from you. Check out Arizona Outdoor Adventures. They do 1-day to...

    Forster Full Length Sizing Die Question

    I’ve had the same problem with Forster dies being out of spec. Send it back. It really does seem to be quite a common occurrence with them.

    TriggerTech 2-Stage Trigger - I'm stoked!

    Weird because I tried one a couple of weeks ago on a friends rifle in the U.K and i can assure you we usually get everything at least a year after you guys 😂 It was really nice, better than my TT diamond and the first stage take-up felt just right. No after travel. Exactly as I would want it to...

    Any F1 racing fans?

    I got to meet Lewis H twice in the last year. I wasn’t really a fan of his but have completely changed my mind. The guy is an absolute beast of a workaholic. His dedication, passion and technical knowledge is incredible. You need to be on a different level to be a top driver but you can see what...

    Bolt doesn't close

    I suspect it is your case neck thickness. Measure the tip of the case mouth with calipers for a case that didn’t load. Tell us what you get. You probably have a tight neck chamber. The case mouth might have flared a little too.

    Growth in Case Neck Thickness - what causes it ?

    Sorry, to be clear there is no expander ball. I use a Forster Bushing Bump die and I use the same in my .308 and .260 which doesn’t show growth. I was thinking it could be one or more of the following: 1. The die. It did have to go back to Forster because it was too long / wouldn’t bump the...

    Growth in Case Neck Thickness - what causes it ?

    From 0.014 growing to 0.0165 x 2 + .264 = 0.297 vs my 0.295 neck but even 0.297 is pretty tight for a non-tight necked chamber. Even if we take just the mouth of the case, the neck is 0.016 to 0.0165 so we don’t need to even get to the topic of a donut. When I turn the necks, I get a nice clean...

    Growth in Case Neck Thickness - what causes it ?

    Yes a FL die with an expander ball and I use the same type of die in all my rifles yet the case neck thickness growth in one is significantly more than in the others.

    Growth in Case Neck Thickness - what causes it ?

    I’m using a K&M Mitutoyo Wall Thickness Micrometer and I’m measuring along the case wall neck. Measurements are reasonably consistent along that length.

    Growth in Case Neck Thickness - what causes it ?

    I’m trying to understand what are the key drivers of growth in case neck thickness and what steps can be taken to minimise it ? I notice that in a couple of my rifles case neck thickness on Lapua brass is only slightly thicker than new brass even after 6-8 firings. However, on a 6.5CM the case...

    Accuracy International AT stock upgrade???

    I much prefer my MPA chassis to my AT chassis but i wouldn’t de-bond the latter to fit the MPA. Sometimes they fit, sometimes they don’t (they don’t always fit a R700 action!!). I believe de-bonding will also massively impacts residual value of your AT. The market in the U.K. for a de-bonded AT...
