Re: I'm in the Edge Aussie club

Yeh Matty,
Thought it was mission impossible for a while there but all is good now.

I ripped out the bedding from under the barrel and this got rid of the hot barrel fliers.
I then dropped the action hold down screw torque settings from 65 in/lb down to 47 in/lb and it now shoots into the one ragged hole at 100 yards with 92 grains of AR2217 and Remington brass.

Now that I have a workable load for the rifle, I am looking for some Norma .300RUM brass so that I can work out a second load for the rifle up near the 98 grain mark.

If you see any Norma brass about, please let me know.

Also lets see some pictures of your new cannon asap............
Norm

    JAWZ, I like the way the brake contrast the barrel! I'm not that big a fan of sythetic stocks but every once in a while I see one that catches my eye...your's did...can you give me a desciption on the colors and % and is it a marble effect or what do you call it? Very attractive rig.

    Norm I will post pics as soon as I get my hands on it. Talked to some guys on AHN today and they said it could take up to a month for customs to clear it in NSW which would suck. As for the norma brass if I sea any I will get your number off Andrew or Simon and give you a call.

    Chas1 Jaws stock is a standard weatherby MK5 Accumark stock. I think they're made by bell and carlson.

    Matty,
    That sucks about having to wait a month, hang in there mate, the wait will be worth it!
    I cocked up on the brass. It is Nosler brass not Norma. I got hold of some off the "Shooters" warehouse web site. Should take a bit higher pressure, time will tell...............

    It is infectous.

    The stock on my gun is the standard HS black with grey spider webbing and full length bedding block.
