Re: Spotting

I sure agree with what edgehit and richard are saying. On another note, the shooter has some responsibility in this also. If you are the shooter and you are not able to call your shots with some degree of accuracy you are in a position to set yourself up for frustration. This frustrated me many time...

Re: Reloading

Charlie, if you are wanting to dabble with reloading the Lee Kit will work. If you have it, try it. I received one like that when I was in my early teens for the only rifle I had, a 30-06. I loaded lots of ammo on it. They are slow for sure and you might need a powder scale---I found the Lee Dipper ...

Re: When working up a load....

David, for a 308 I go in 3/10ths to .5 grains depending on the powder----smaller increments for faster powder, larger increments for slower powder. Google or read about "ladder testing"---it may save you time and money. FWIW, I just read an old book about 243 and 6mm reloading and the guy who ran th...

Re: Another reloading question.

Quickload is software that compiles bullets from different manufacturers and powder from different manufacturers. I use it a lot and like it. It's comprehensive but also easier to make a mistake----you are doing the input---so you have to understand how to use the program and what it is telling you.

Re: bolt failure

Good safety reminder for sure. Thanks. I always wondered about the safety factor difference between 22 bolt guns---I have several where the bolt is the only lug. My Walther has two pretty substantial lugs. 40X's have big lugs, but a two part bolt---something to wonder about I guess. 22's run at a pr...

Re: What do you typically do, when

Also, I'm not a fan of adding powder until the bolt opens hard--I don't do it. If I want to work up loads, I will use a chronograph to get an idea---there are methods using a chronograph that are useful for sure, but not bomb proof. Flat primers and still bolt lift can fool you---many rifles will ta...

Re: What do you typically do, when

I generally have an idea when I buy them....HA! But, what do you have David, maybe if you elaborate, someone else has tried them before and has some results? Quickload can be a real help if the bullet is in his base. The manufacturer or the online loading manuals sometimes have new info. If you can'...

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...

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...
