    303Guy replied to a thread Wolf Match Extra in Rimfire Area
    I have noticed a very strange smelling powder in one of my ammo's. I think it's Aguila match although it could be Geco match. Then again, it could have been someone else using Wolf.

    Maybe look at the bedding again. My results when I made a change were that the rifle became less sensitive ammo types and brands. The group hardly shifts but the group isn't great either. My sights make it difficult to pin down the cause but I...

    I had a pair of old weavers. One I gave to a buddy and the other I think I still have. One of the lenses has separated making it essentially unusable. It has the low profile eyepiece. Yup LtFrankDrebbin, Lithgow Slazenger. Integral...

    303Guy replied to a thread Scoping a Rem 510 ? in Rimfire Area
    I epoxied a front sight onto my 510 just to be able to test the rifle. I was so careful not to bump it and break it of - I had used cheap epoxy. Then came time to remove it. A tap with a small hammer and drift would do it, right? Hah - I had to...

    Yup. Get a glue on mount. I did that with my 512 and it's been on for .... I don't have enough fingers to count the number of years. Does anyone actually make such a mount? It wouldn't be difficult to give a machine shop a drawing to make...

    I took the 510 to the range today with some Geco Match ammo and some Aguila 40gr solid subsonic ammo that I got in December. Well, the Geco didn't do so well but the Aguila solids did quite well considering the sights. I could tell from aiming...

    So my new target ammo was a disappointment but the Aguila solid 40gr subsonic did quite well. I ran some through my scoped Remington 512 and got a one hole hole group. Seeing how it performed I sighted the rifle in for the hollow nose subsonic...

    OS OK, those results are great. Now comes the part where you equal those groups without the bag rest as tazman says. :mrgreen: Tomorrow I get to test my new target (or is it match) ammo. I have of course done nothing on my rifles over this...

    Maybe by strapping the rifle down you might have introduced stresses in the system. Possibly operating the bolt could be causing small changes in the stressed system. That's assuming it wasn't a bedding issue all along, which could have been. The...

    OS, you mention shooting the rifle in. I read that 22 barrels don't shoot in. They have to be lapped.

    That young lady up above is remarkable in her ability to shoot 40 shots into one hole in one string. Apart from her ability to aim that well, there is her endurance, both eyesight and concentration. These dang youngsters! They should be striving...

    Great experiment! The results are very interesting. First two shots are off while the high and low velocity shots are in the group! Interestingly, up above, in one of your groups it was also 1 & 2 that were out outliers. Notice that 1 & 2 are...

    I remember those. What I am wondering is whether those outliers could be caused by shot to shot velocity differences. Maybe that's an exercise I could do one day at the range. Could be tricky to set up though. Our 25m range does not lend...

    You've given me some ideas for a heavy clamping arrangement I can use at the range. Your last group has 7 of the 10 shots in a respectable cluster. It would be interesting to know the velocity of each of those shots.

    I've got this 22 barrel with a tight chamber and tight bore that I thought I might try to build into an air rifle. The pellet head slightly engraves the rifling. Then I thought maybe better build a target rifle although the chamber appears to be...

    I would like to learn the art of lead lapping. I have thought about lapping that two-groove but just to remove sharp edges. I have another rifle that is tight mid section that I want to lap. Here's the two-groove bore.

    Hi Sirius, glad to have you on board. Would you happen to have some photos of your rifle? Is it a two-groove or five groove? I have three two-groove rifles, one that I haven't fired yet. Unfortunately, none of my rifles are in original form -...

    I find the groove diameter to be a bit unusual. My two-groove has a groove diameter of .318 which I thought was about standard with a groove diameter of .304. The bullet needs somewhere to expand into. My limited trials with cast in this rifle...

    Aye. Subs are as boring as. But to suppress, that's what we have to do. Also, subs tend to be more accurate. Then again, there is something very satisfying about a supersonic crack with no muzzle blast.
