uhg.. I always forget something...  good thing its not my head....  N133.  Ive gone as high as 27.8.  Not much difference. other than accuracy. It seems to shoot best at 26.9

I am loading 6ppc In lapua russian.   ive tweaked my load to 26.9 using 68 gr bergers jammed 6 thou. this is giving me the best group. so far......  Nothing to write home about but my last test yielded a quarter inch group at 100yds.  Still need to tweak some. Yodave changed up our targets and we now have a much smaller X target to shoot at. This Sunday will seperate the men from the boys. So if I can get this load or something very close to it to shoot in the high tenths.. I'll be a happy camper.

 Well experimenting is right up my alley.. So i should fit right in.. !

 Oh yeah.. the other thing I was curious about... Blow by or blow back. The necks on my bress look nasty and sooty when thew come out of the chamber. Is that considered normal? Im not sure whats an appropriate level of carbon build up on the outer surfaces.

Yes Sir it does. Thank you.
I am right on the money. I am 0.269 on the chamber and the brass is turned to 0.2675. My rifle shoots fairly well but i have yet to make it shoot like it should as my skill level is still that of a beginner.  

I was curious "where the magic happened"  And this is exactly the kind of reply I was hoping for. I knew I couldn't be the first one to think about this. I just didnt know that there are 40-50 years worth of people ahead of me.  Haha!

After watching the shots hit the paper, I dont feel so bad anymore!! Hahaha!!

What an amazing facility!  We have gravel and more gravel and then theres more gravel.

really like that aluminum Anshutz!!  and those rests!  wow!

Nice vid Rick.  Great idea to do something for Canada too. Not sure where one begins. There are so many venues here that only shooters are aware of.
What I wonder about... how do you change someones mind that has no interest in firearms and have them realize how much fun it can be...?  I'd say it 'relaxing' too but up until now I was thinking there was something wrong with my abilities! LoL! That should change having watched this vid!

without having gone exploring is there actually an organization in Canada that is dedicated to rimfire BR? Im rather new to the sport. Ive shot forever and a day but never took it past a dirt mound out in the back woods. I must say I have had some great experiences with the people Ive met and the days out shooting. The Irish fellow is right on the mark.

My bad, Thanks for reiterating information already posted. I did see that post I guess I should have been more concise in my description of what I am going off about.

Lets say you have a cartridge that is"perfectly sized" 0.002 neck & 0.002 shoulder. It shoots lights out. Why mess with a good thing right?  When you discharge the round the neck expands and allows the projectile to leave the chamber with little interference.  Im splitting hairs..

If you have a cartridge with lets say the bare minimum of neck clearance.. 0.268 in a 0.269 chamber... wouldnt this be enough to allow free exit of the projectile as well as keep the brass from being over worked thus prolonging its life and possibly increasing accuracy? Or is that 0.0015 -0.002 what has been shown or proven and is known to work?  Or am I right out to lunch as the cartridge then becomes too difficult to manipulate? Some one out there must have tried this at some point?   Sorry if this is a ridiculous question. Im just curious and searching for 2nd opinions.

Hi Guys,
My first post here also.

Im curious about this as well. Is there a set standard to neck clearance inside the chamber?  Does this vary from caliber to caliber? My savage 10 (in .308) leaves my cartridges very dirty on the necks after firing whereas my weatherby vangaurd ( also .308) does not. Both rifles are discharging the same cartridge. unturned unmodified federal brass. Of course one wont accept the other but that is beside the point.

I ASSUME that one tries for the least amount of clearance as possible? The less the neck expands at time of discharge the better?  Correct me if I am misguided. I am only playing with this in my own head.

   There are a number of choices for vane shapes & colors.  If you  want to stand out in the crowd this is the way to  go.
