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.

As was stated above neck clearance of .002” is a good target.
If you accurately measure the brass from each chamber you will see how much it differs from each other.
We normally measure the neck, shoulder and base dimensions of the fired and sized brass as the way to match up the sizing die to the chamber. One measurement that doesn’t get the attention it should is the shoulder (tapered part) bump back. It is common to see the dimensions over sized which effects the headspace clearance on sizes brass.
In a target type rifle this should again be in the .002” range of bump back. In a hunting rifle a bit more bump back is recommended to handle adverse environmental conditions.
The closer you can match the sized brass back the chamber dimensions the better it aligns the projectile to the bore.

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.

   Turn your necks to achieve a clearance of 1 1/2" to 2 thou. under your chamber neck dimension.
   This should be measured by seating the bullet of your choice in the turned neck and then measuring
   the outside diameter of the  neck where the bullet base sits.
