Re: Twins update

What kind of velocities are you getting with your load? I am just curious.

Re: Twins update

Ric it looks as if they are indeed identical twins. Chris built a fine pair of rifles!!
Guns and ammo, what more do we need?

Re: Twins update

gotta be honest here... those are 4 shot groups.. the cold clean bore shot is somewhere in the mix... I was really hoping for the CCB shot to be outta the group because I thrive on frustraition!!!

Velocity, it was real overcast yesterday so I didn't have the chrony set -up. I plan to in the future and I will give another update...
I think the .284 cal ( especially the 160-175 class of bullets ) is largly over looked so I plan to really experiment with it. you see the 150's and 140's being used a bunch even the 168's now and again but no-one really has stretched the big 7's

the barels on the rifles are crap... I really enjoy using a dozen or so patches just to get out the initial powder fowling. THese things are so bad that I only need 2 or 3 and then after running a brush down them I only need another 2 or 3 to have it clean. It really sucks cause I was hoping to use the barrel cleaning regiment as part of my daily work out.. I have to talk to Chris about this...
The other thing is the way he built the rifles is actually quite boring and now I have no idea what I will do... I planned on being aggravated and frustraighted by spending unGodly amounts of money buying 6 or 7 types of powder and way more bullets than I would ever use to work up a load for these rifles.. and now after 2 attemps .. I am done...

OH well I guess I'll order somthing different... I suppose if I have a yard sale on Sat someone might take them off my hands...
