Re: I'm in the Edge Aussie club

Hey Andrew,
I am real happy for you mate. That rifle is sure to give you years of fun and enjoyment.
Those two groups. 91grains and 92grains. They seem to shoot to different points of impact. Were they shot under different conditions? If not you may have to pay close attention to your powder charge wieght when you are reloading.
What's the pressure like with these two loads?
Norm

Re: I'm in the Edge Aussie club

Yeh good Andrew thanks, where did you take the beast for its first day out?, and what about pressure signs with the 92gn load any? Mine shoots its best with that charge behind the 300 smk but ive found thats its absolute limit before the bolt gets very sticky and primers flatten badly with any increase. Also good to see someone build an edge on a mk5 thats something a bit different as well. Maybe we can meet at silverdale one day .

Re: I'm in the Edge Aussie club

Norm i made the correction after fireing that 91 grn group thus the change in point of impact for the 92grns.

Mick i was fine even at 93 grn but was getting and extracter mark on the case so i will probably just stay at 92 neither load showed any sign of sticky bolt lift or flattened primers.

Mate yeh that sounds good i have to go out to chrony the loads now anyway.
Might see you next ADA meeting.

If that's the case Andrew, you are right to go.
Just load up a heap and get out there and shoot some stuff.
