Re: WTB Walther KK-MS

I bought one new around 1989 for roughly $900 if I remember correctly--very nice rifle. But, I gave it to my son about ten years ago after my first chemo go round---the trigger is very light and I could not set it heavy enough to feel it due to neuropathy. I know of two others that might be for sale...

Re: Postal Silhouette Matches?

Mountainman, I tried to find Roger's post for the Silhouette postal but couldn't. You can scroll down about five topics and send Roger a pm---he is the OP for the post about the Wyoming State Championships. I'm getting ready to send in my $ for the postal---pretty sure it's not too late, the complet...

Re: Just gotta talk to someone

KKJ's are certainly classy rifles. All the ones I've seen (a handful) have had tapered barrels. You are referring to a KKJ that is in 22 long rifle? As I think some were made in other calibers (maybe 22 Hornet). I would shoot the Walther KKJ if it's a 22 long rifle---if it won't make hunter class, i...

Re: 6.5mm Bullet for the Close Animals

I think your idea of seating them deeper and increasing neck tension is a good bet. I would also try a standard primer--based on this---standard small rifle primers in a 22 Hornet can dislodge the bullet before the powder burns and cause erratic accuracy, high ES and SD---some folks solve this by us...

Re: 6.5mm Bullet for the Close Animals

Interesting, I have several 6.5x55's and have shot the 107's out of all of them including the Swedish Mausers with no issues. When I've had issues with brass not sealing it has been because the brass is very work hardened or the load is very light. I do shoot quite a few 120 Nosler's also and they h...

Re: HOLYCOW Dustin

Very good shooting Dustin, your skill is impressive.

Bob, your point about making changes to the game which diminish the accomplishments of past shooters who worked hard to achieve them is a very good point, +1.

Re: Which 7mm caliber?

Hawkeye, some folks use the 7mmTCU and do ok. Your 7x47 should have a bit more zip than the TCU. If I had it I would try it. Limited experience, but I shot a 7BR two seasons---really liked it. I shot the old Nosler solid base 150 grain on rams, and 120 anything or even 115's on the other critters. I...

Re: Deformed pellets

My close up vision is very bad and I don't wear my glasses when I shoot my air rifles. So, I'm never sure whether I'm loading pellets with bent skirts or not. I mainly shoot indoors for practice at ten meters as there are no air rifles matches close, but I also shoot some postals. I do look my pelle...

Re: How do most people dry their SS tumbling media?

David, here are a couple of things I've found. If you shoot a 25 or 6.5 caliber, the steel pins may bridge in the neck----you can buy shorter pins and they will not bridge. Also, I use a RCBS media separator to remove the pins from the brass---works fine. Then I just rinse the brass and pins. I dry ...

Re: How do most people dry their SS tumbling media?

I'm also in the no dry camp. I put mine back in the tumbler container with about enough water for the next batch. But, mine rarely sits for more than a week and I'm using it again. The container (Thumblers) was made to handle water, so no issue there and I've ran my steel media for maybe seven years...

Re: Savage / Anchutz Match 64 trigger spring.

For crude methods. For measuring stretch, you can use a scale similar to a scale that weighs fish. For measuring compression, you can use a lab scale and your finger---just compress the spring under your finger while it's sitting on the scale and repeat until you get a average. If you want a better ...

Re: Close focus adaptor

Steve, I was able to make the 50' Leupold adapter work on a Burris scope by securing the 50' adapter in a piece of pvc that was big enough to slide over the front scope bell and then sliding the pvc with the 50' adapter secured in it until it came into focus and then securing it--with tape. I used i...
