Hey danyboy,

When the guys talk about clearance, they are referring to total clearance. .002" clearance would be .001" per side for example.

With regards your particular situation, the neck clearance of your Lapua brass looks like a good place to start - .002" No need to turn the neck diameter down unless you want to clean the necks up a bit and/or feel like adding more clearance for whatever reason. As for neck bushings, I would try a few different sizes and see what kind of neck tension your rifle/load likes. Perhaps .267" on the tight end to .269" on the loose end? I don't shoot a 6BR so can't really say what a 6BR likes for neck tension. Another thing to keep in mind is that your bullet could have a pressure ring at the base of around .0005" The bullet makers in the crowd can confirm or deny this dimension. What this means is that your actual loaded OD could be .2705" measured at the pressure ring with the bullet seated. If you're using longer bullets in your 6BR, the bullet's base could be down below the neck/shoulder junction. Just measure the bullet at it's base and compare that measurement with a measurement taken just a tad further up the jacket. Some will argue that tight neck tension is a good thing because if you're running a compressed powder charge, the tighter neck tension will keep your bullet in place where as minimal neck tension could push the bullet out some. Seating depth considerations are an important step in load development and consistent seating depth is one of the critical aspects to shooting small groups. Consistency is key, even if you're doing things all wrong, do so consistently.  Cheesy

Charles. I have several extra Graham flags that I doubt very much I'll ever use. They are the ball type. How many are you looking for? I'll dig them out of storage and get back to you with details and photos. Dan

One thing you should be aware of with those Sako mag fed rifles is that you won't be able to just place a round on top of the feed lips and close the bolt. The bullet nose will jam up on breach face. I used my old Sako for several years in matches at Rosebud and I had to seat each round in the mag before closing the bolt to prevent stoppages. You could thumb in a round a little deeper so the bullet nose is inside the chamber. Either way, both eat up time on the clock and I found seating a round in the mag was the fastest and most repeatable process during competition.

My old Sako 6ppc would shoot 55g Nolser Ballistic Tips as good as any match bullet if you'd believe it. Or at least as good as Opel's early 6mm batches.  Cheesy They were seated so shallow that if I looked at the loaded rounds the wrong way, the bullet would pop out of the case mouth. I seated them there because that's the OAL it took to touch the lands of the factory barrel with such a short bullet. If seated deeper, the groups would open up.

Agreed! A big thanks to Rick, Hugh, Rosebud (Tony), Wayne and their better halves for making this happen. I gleaned some valuable knowledge from the one the best in the sport and look forward to applying this to lay an arse whooping on my Rosebud pals.   Grin

Yeah I guess that makes more sense. I was wondering how we'd fit both 100 and 200 yards into a weekend. I was all for it though!
8  News / BRSC - Benchrest Shooters Canada / Re: ROSEBUD SCHEDULE FOR 2017 on: February 10, 2017, 11:46:11 AM
5 targets for each class. 20 targets with a total of 100 rounds on record, both at 100 yards and 200 yards. I think this will be Rosebud's first 4 gun. I'm excited! I just hope I'm not working. Sad

That's what I thought but wanted to double check. I have a rifle that I'd like to shoot in Sporter if I can make the Stampede Shootout match.

Hi Rick,

Is the BRSC following the new NBRSA rules for Sporter Class?

Great shooting everyone.

Jen and I were both sorry we couldn't make it. Jen enjoys Arizona and it's always a pleasure for me to shoot a match hosted by Berger.

See you all at the Cactus next year!

Lee, it kills me not to attend but I'm heading back up to to Ft.Mac tomorrow. Still lots of work to do up there.

At least this year you guys won't have to worry about me showing up with my Sako.   Grin
See you all at the Nationals!

Rob, I've had good success with PMA's case holder/drivers as well. I'm not sure there is much of a difference between Sinclair's or PMA's though.

Phil, I'll be driving east this fall to visit the family south of Barrie and will be passing by Kenora. If the timing is right I'd like to drop in to see your range.

Am I allowed to contest bull 22? I have my fee ready.  Grin

Anyone have a spare action wrench for a Bat 3 Lug they'd like to sell?
Thanks, Dan.

I'd be interested to know as well.

Thanks for posting the equipment list Rick. I find it's interesting to see what guys are shooting. At least for me I like to see who the gunsmiths are and what bullets guys are shooting.

I see Bob's bullets are listed a few times. Good on ya Bob! It's great that we have a few Canadian bullet makers in our midst.

Nice shooting Opel!
