  1. .270wsm oal problems

    I tried that and it measures the same
  2. .270wsm oal problems

    Hi guys im trying to work up a load for my kimber .270wsm hunting rifle im using 130gr sierra bullets. Im having some troubles figuring out my max oal for this load it seems the throat of this rifle is very short. I tried making a "dummy" round and coloring the bullet with a sharpie and seating the bullet deeper and deeper till no marks from the lands appeared in the bullet and they stop showing up around 2.744" which seems very short! SAAMI specs list 2.860 as max OAL. And the federal commercial ammo I had laying around measures 2.780" and ive never had a problem chambering factory ammo. I loaded up a ladder at 2.730" which is the shortest oal load data I could find and they all chambered well, accuracy was so so but I found a good accuracy node that I would like to work on a little more by adjusting seating depth. I put together another dummy round and seated it to 2.800" the cartridge chambers fine with no increase in pressure required to close the bolt handle and no extra pressure required to extract the cartridge but I do see scratches around the bullet ogive from contacting the lands which has me confused as I would think that if the bullet was being shoved into the lands it would be harder to chamber and extract. Am I doing something wrong here or is this common?
  3. SP-01 Barrel bushing, does it make a difference

    Thanks for all the great info. Im going to put in an order tomorrow for the bushing and a srs disconnector from cgw. I also need a front sight I bought a competition rear sight from czc but didnt want to drill out the front for the pin so I think ill go with the cgw fiber optic front. From what Ive read seems like ill need a 6.5mm. Does that sound right?
  4. 100rd sample pack. Acme. Quality concerns.

    I just finished up loading 1000 147gr nlg fp 9mm from acme yesterday and didnt have a single bullet that had coating flaking off or was deformed
  5. Was thinking about getting a barrel bushing for my SP-01 tactical and was wondering if it actually makes a difference in accuracy, and also how difficult it is to install
  6. Thoughts on RPR

    Went out and bought a RPR on friday. Took it out this weekend and put 100 rounds through it and have to say im very impressed my best groups were .52" at 100yds and .76" at 200yds. Also very impressed with the 6.5 creedmoor round its a joy to shoot low recoil and very accurate. Thanks for all the advice guys I appreciate it
  7. Thoughts on RPR

    Hey guys my wife is wanting to get into long range precision shooting. Ive been researching different rifles and it seems to get a quality rifle your looking at $3k+ before optics. Thats more than im willing to spend for a hobby that im not sure she is going to stick with. So I think Ive decided just to get her a RPR in 6.5 creedmore and if she sticks with it we can always upgrade in the future. So my question is, is the RPR a good rifle for a beginner? Ive read a lot of reviews on them and most of them are good but I have read a few bsd ones. Also what style reticle would you guys recomend for someone just getting into PRS. I think im going to go with the Vortex viper pst. I know there is better glass out there but again looking at price point I think it will be plenty good for her right now.
  8. Best drill for a newbie

    Ok target distance was somewhere around 30 ft im shooting 9mm 147gr coated lead over 3.0grs of TG at 1.140" oal. Out of a cz75 sp-01. I have watched videos on grip and stance the stance I feel Im pretty good with. The grip im still working on I love the feel of the sp-01 rubber grips but they almost feel like they are too small for me I dont feel as though the palm of my off hand has enough room to really get pressure on it which doesnt make sense to me because they are pretty beefy grips and ive never noticed a problem with my grip on my other guns although I havent really shot much else since learning a proper grip. I dont have pictures but will try to get some next time I shoot. Thanks again
  9. Best drill for a newbie

    Thanks for the advice ewuwpew. What other info should I have included? To clarify Im not new to shooting at all ive been shooting since I was old enough to hold a gun til this point it has just been more based on hunting and plinking which ive never seen the need to practice fast follow up shots.
  10. Best drill for a newbie

    And ive tried increasing pressure with my offhand but it makes it hard to hold steady... I think that part is just practice and conditioning
  11. Best drill for a newbie

    Havent got a timer yet im using an app on my phone and to keep accuracy with my 2nd shot im at or just above 1sec
  12. Best drill for a newbie

    Hi everyone, just trying to get started in uspsa production shooting and was wondering if you guys have any suggestions for drills. I went out and tried shooting double shots at multiple targets yesterday and the results were pretty bad. Takes me way too long to get my sight picture back and accuracy of my second shot is not very good. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks, John
  13. SP-01 tactical sights

    I talked to CGW before I bought the hammer and they told me it is production legal for uspsa
  14. SP-01 tactical sights

    What does the bushing do?
  15. SP-01 tactical sights

    Thanks guys. Thats kind of the way im leaning Paladin. I like the look of the CZC competition rear sights, but I read on another post that the dawson precision front FO post was much better than the CZC one. Ill have to go find that post again and figure out what height I need. Does the CZC rear competition sight work with the Cajun gun works race hammer? It looks like that rear sight hangs off the back a little.
