    OS, is there any way you can check whether or not the extractors lift away from the case once the bolt is locked? I would imagine that they cam outwards in the extractor cut outs on the breach face. My Remington bolt holds the case firmly against...

    Thanks for that OS. Good find. I have a rifle (several of them actually, Slazenger Mod 13's) that don't have extractors. Well they do but they tuck away and do not do anything to the case and they are not part of the bolt. Single shots - you...

    I just looked up Eley Contact. Semi-auto subsonic. Mean velocity 1040 - 1090 fps. Then Eley Force. Semi-auto high velocity. Mean velocity 1130 - 1250 fps. Eley Tenex - Mean velocity 1040 - 1085 fps. I have used the Force. Stronger muzzle...

    OS, my target board is perpendicular to the bench house. I use estate agents board to pin my target sheets onto and they are flat. That whole board is then pinned onto target wall. It means I can set up at home and just pin the days targets up in...

    I've never heard of any 22 LR having a jacket of any sort. Being a heeled boolit, it needs to be soft enough for the heel to bump up. Although, having said that, I have recovered 22 boolits in which the heel did not bump up. And maybe I am wrong...

    OS, on barrel vibration, the other day at the range I fired a few shots with different powder charges. One 'group' was a horizontal string almost perfectly in line while the other was a normal group. It made me think of just that thing. On...

    I hope this doesn't further add to the shortages you folks have been experiencing. Hopefully it does show up for sale in your parts but I would suspect maybe not.

    I was wondering about that. So this happens even if you run a patch through it immediately before firing? How long does it need to stand before it does that again?

    I've found that if the rear sight is far enough back and just the right size and shape, I can still aim with irons. A very small 'U' notch or 'V' seems to work. It's deceiving because I aim from indoors and can see just fine but when I go...

    tazman has covered it. Where altitude does matter is with the downrange velocity of the bullet. Your downrange velocity will be greater than mine. This could mean your boolits are staying in the transonic zone longer but on the converse, will be...
