    Taz...those pictures look pretty good from the unfocused pictures you have here...but...I'm thinking that you have chatter in that bore...try screwing your mirror on to the probe a little farther in... or if it's screwed on to the limit...loose it a...

    When I first got serious about .22 BR, I used to blame the ammo for almost every flier I couldn't claim from my own inability to control that POI... didn't run any flags or even understand what wind does to the lil'Pills we shoot. In my mind...

    For as long as I can remember, I'd clean a bore...do what I thought was a good job, then I look down the barrel with light at the other end and it would shine like a diamond in a Goat's butt. I smile, pat myself on the head and say..."Good...

    These are the flags he uses...you can see the direction they point very easy with this double vane of red and white...I think I can make these very easy. I'll try my hand at it tomorrow.

    No kidding taz...after all this shooting, I still don't have it down firm just how much a projectile actually moves off the 'X' for any given MPH from any direction. I get a lot of 3:00 & 9:00 with 1/4 variations on those but I'm struggling to get a...

    I would love to see some pictures of one of your CZ barrels taken with a bore-scope. I get the impression from what your saying that...they don't have any chatter or tool marks...that they are slick as glass. I must be mistaken thinking that all...

    Compensating for the wind again... I shot mid-morning today with the wind, trying to learn to compensate the right amount for the different velocities & angles that it will blow. I used a more 'score forgiving' target so the results weren't such...

    Taz...I think that continued dirty patch thing is us cleaning the carbon out of the scratches/tooling marks in the barrel. I think the carbon collects there and rounds out the ID of the barrel & seals the barrel as the projectile passes. When we...

    How about an 'Ivory' or 'Purple' stock? My son just had to have the Apache, I never liked these as they don't have the feel of wood & blue steel. I guess that's my bad, I grew up before all this plastic stuff.

    I would take a look at the hardness of that cast and several others in that batch of Pb, try to determine if this is a 'one off' rather than reflective of the entire melt. That's strange, I don't recognize that grain, it looks more like cast steel...

    Best advice is get a hot plate & USE IT!! Bring molds to 350/375 degrees before staring ta cast. I guaranty the majority of problems will disappear. CW
