Hey John glad to see u here. Just wanted to say thanks. About 8 years ago i purchased a sako in 7.82 warbird and couldnt get load info. I called your company and ended up talking with you for about a 1/2 hour. Your info was great. I ended up killing a 150 class wisconsin whitetail at what was a long shot for me at the time 570yds. And man that warbird knocks everything it touches dead. I have since sold it and i am going to try to build a firebird. Thanks again for your time.
John, i started the ground work on the firebird build wondering about where i can get a reamer and a headspace gauge. I also was wondering with the higher velocities of the Lazzeroni cartridges if i should use a slower twist barrel. I intend on shooting 168s and 180s in this firebird any thaughts on what twist i should go with. Im leaning on a 27" barrel with a break.
JGS Precision tool should be able to supply you with the reamer and headspace gauges (((headspace gauges are the same for the Lazz 284 Firebird up thru 475 Bibamufu)))
as for barrel twist ,,,,, I just re-barreled my own Firebird with a SS 1 in 9 twist Schneider ,,,,,,, shoots REAL well at 300 yards with 139gr Lazz LazerHeads, but now I am going to try some of the longer VLDs to see what it does ,,,,,
accubonds come to mind as the Bergers seem to be too fragile for the speeds that the Lazz Warbird and Firebird run at ,,,,,, but as always, I have more to learn ,,,,
