    If you neck up the 6mm Rem cases, would be the easiest way to be sure that you don't have to turn necks. The 7mm case would be as almost as easy and has the same shoulder angle but, you'd have to make sure the neck doesn't thicken. I doubt that it...

    So, it is turning out that it's not really the RPM that is effecting the accuracy of the cast bullet in the <140K RPM range but, how well the bullet is cast, how well it's loaded and how well the chamber of the rifle is able to align the bullet,...

    I manufactored aircraft parts from 1978 until I closed my business in 1997. In all thoughs years, I never had a drawing that had a mil spec requiring DPI for magnetic steel parts. Milspecs are required for structural aircraft parts. Could you...

    Hmmmm....... 180,740 rpm and still linear? Other people do that, too with even better accuracy, Right? So again, what is the "threshold" RPM? Threshold...... is that something that I can find anyplace else? Or do we just have your word for...

    An old High Power, 200 yard, target load is 48.0 gr 4064 with a 168 gr match bullet. I believe I got that from Ken Waters. In my Rem 7600, I was able to 100 yard,5 shot, 5/8 groups, with that load. Frank

    Also for those wanting to measure the bore and groove of the 303, this may help you. If the barrel is within tolerance, note that measuring on the corners (red line) will give to the groove size. If you have pin gages, you can verify the corner...

    larry, larry, larry, again, you try to mislead. CBA does not shoot 5, five shot groups or one 10 shot group. Both group averages are for 20 shots! They shoot 4, five shot groups and average them, in the 10 shot groups they shoot two, ten shot...

    Regarding larrys theory that groups should be twice as large at 200 yds as they are at 100 yds. That does not hold up with FACT. What I am about to show you is based on the CBA National matches between 2010 and 2013 ('14 hasn't been shot yet). In...
