    Berger 109’s range report after a year

    Im really hoping so because if I could get my 6x47s to run as reliably as my BRA, the BRA would stay home and the 47s would get worn out....I am partial to it as long as I can get it to run....consistently....maybe running 109s thru the 47 slower thru a 275 neck will be the answer. I know this...

    Berger 109’s range report after a year

    its possible I may have had a carbon ring in them causing some of that as well. I have since learned to do a better job of being sure to remove it. I use a bore scope to monitor and clean every 300 rounds or so, maximum. That has to help but every smith I talk to recommends 4-6 thou neck...

    Berger 109’s range report after a year

    I had a number if things go sideways. I ran 105 hybrids in 3 different 47s with 273 necks and it seemed like they all shot very well for about 700 rounds or so and then things got weird. zero it one day, .2 high the next. move the zero down .2 and the day after that it was .2 low, or left, or...

    Berger 109’s range report after a year

    I had finicky issues with several 6x47 necks but got a 275 reamer and can not wait to find out if my issues have disappeared. Just seemed like some days they shit amazing other days the load fell apart. Im hoping it was just odd. Eck tension issues with the 273 neck and the 275 will cure it.....

    22 Creedmoor misfire/hangfire issue

    I will try that...knowing its a 7 twist, I would like to run something heavier than 75-80 grains. 88s would be great if they will shoot...

    22 Creedmoor misfire/hangfire issue

    I have been doing some reading and that research appears to agree with what you are saying....SRP brass up here in cold temps in MN, ND and Montana is now a dead issue. Thanks for confirming what I thought might be the case...

    22 Creedmoor misfire/hangfire issue

    PS....if anyone has any 22CM load data they would like to share, I am all ears. I have 75 and 88eldms...80gr, 80.5 and 85.5 VLDs and 77 tmks, Hornady brass and H4350 and RL 26 and a few others to work with. Neck bushing size suggestions would also help. thanks again,,

    22 Creedmoor misfire/hangfire issue

    Hello, I have been doing some 22 CM load development in my rifle and just got 100 new Alpha SRP cases. The rifle is a 24 inch 7 twist tube and has been fussy to get shooting well and has already ended up back at the original gunsmith who worked up a load with Alpha LRP brass. Well, I got...

    Would you consider a trade even up for the exact same thing but right handed?

    Acceptable/normal zero variation

    I agree. I have done the 1 shot per dot thing and I think it's a good idea because on occasion, one shot will take out your aiming point and potentially skew follow up shots, so using one shot per, a person always has a fresh poa...it doesn't necessarily show group most accurately I guess but...

    Acceptable/normal zero variation

    Perhaps I am putting my ignorance on display but think I am going to have to try this...shoot a group of 20 plus shots and find the center of that, and relocate that "center" to as close as I can get to my POA and call it zeroed. That way the dispersion cone should fall either in the zero or...

    Acceptable/normal zero variation

    I havent actually tested in this format yet but I think it would be good to include a cold bore shot and even a clean cold bore shot in the test....

    Acceptable/normal zero variation

    Thanks for the replies folks, I have chased my zero all over the place and it appears I may have been doing myself more harm than good. Just for some back story, I am running an Impact 737 with a Spuhr 4001, Vortex Razor Gen II in a McMillan A3-5(is not yet bedded in to the stock) chambered...

    Acceptable/normal zero variation

    what do you fellas use for a protocol or a procedure to "prove" the rifle is established and doesnt shift? I am thinking a 2x2 piece of cardboard with like twenty five 1 inch dots on it and shoot one each time I go to the range, from prone. Keep track of time, date, wind and environmental...

    Acceptable/normal zero variation

    I typically clean every 300 rounds or so. I fear carbon rings and things like that so I have found my guns tend to shoot better and more consistently than the old "let it go until accuracy falls off" method. Tried it what way and it didnt go well....

    Acceptable/normal zero variation

    So that jives with what i was thinking. it is a 6BRA and it never really strays farther than .1 so seeing some small shift that can be chalked up to the other things you mention makes me feel more confident. I have been thinking about making a "zero log" target with multiple dots on it so i...
