BR Equipment + Components / WTB 6 PPC chamber reamer
« on: February 18, 2019, 05:43:37 PM »
Does anyone have a 6PPC chamber reamer they'd like to sell?  Or rent?

I'm wondering whether anyone in Canada is set up to neck-turning (for a profit) for other shooters?  My guess is that this would best be done by someone with a lathe.  I find neck-turning by hand a pain and would gladly pay to have a couple of 100 cases turned for me.

Centerfire Discussions / 6 PPC Chamber Reamer Availability

Does anyone in Canada sell chamber reamers?  I'm guessing probably not, but thought I'd ask before looking at the US suppliers like PT&G.  I'd like to purchase a 6 PPC reamer for a build.

Centerfire Discussions / Custom BR Action
« on: February 03, 2019, 11:13:49 AM »
Since I've already asked about barrels, let me ask about actions too.

Who in Canada can supply the top custom actions?  Most would have to be imported, I guess.  I'm thinking of BAT Machine, Stiller, Kelbly, Defiance, Surgeon, etc.

I'd like to build a custom varmint rig, but with a BR action and topnotch barrel.  I'd probably go with a single-shot action.

Centerfire Discussions / Purchase of barrel blank
« on: February 01, 2019, 02:50:41 PM »
I'd like to purchase a top-of-the-line match-grade barrel for a project.  I would like chrome-moly.  It would be in 6 mm., with a bull-sporter contour (.700 diameter at the muzzle) and 1-14 twist.

Who in Canada might have this barrel in stock?  If no distributor up here in Canada has one, is it possible to order directly from a US maker like Krieger, Shilen, Bartlein, Broughton, etc.?

Any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Is there an agreed-upon opinion about the minimum distance that the bullet should protrude down into the case neck? I ask because I've discovered that the new-to-me Sako 6 PPC I'm loading for seems to have a long throat, and to seat the bullets I want to use so that they touch the lands (68-gr. Bart's and 68-gr. Watsons) puts the bullets out so far as to give me less-than-usual bullet/neck contact (less than half the length of the neck). Of course, I could seat them deeper, but this would introduce a certain amount of jump, which I'd like to avoid if possible. 

With the Bartís touching the lands, the base of the bullet is .121" down the neck. The Watsons end up about .140" down the neck. I don't plan to work rounds through the magazine, so getting the OAL to work through the mag is unnecessary. I'm using the Wilson chamber-type straight-line seater (and the Wilson chamber-type neck sizer as well).  Iím wondering whether this amount of contact (like the .121Ē with the Bartís) will produce enough tension and Iím concerned about creating excessive run-out.

Any insights on this?

Centerfire Discussions / Reloading Components in Canada
« on: January 25, 2015, 09:59:54 AM »
I'm new to this forum and am coming back to shooting after an absence of a few years.  While trying to obtain certain components the way I had years ago from the  US, I've discovered that new US laws have prohibited suppliers of reloading components from shipping to Canada.

So how do we obtain cases and bullets now in Canada?  I'd like to get some brass to get started again, and have discovered Bart's Bullets that seem worth trying.  Who are the big Canadian suppliers?  Or even small suppliers?

Hi, I'm brand-new to this forum and had a question for you guys.  I have a .22 PPC for which I loaded Norma 22 PPC USA brass years ago.  I'm told that the Lapua 220 Russian case makes up into a superior .22 PPC case.  However, this would require quite a bit of work--to fireform to .22 PPC dimensions, to trim, and to neck-turn so that the resulting brass would chamber in my .22 PPC chamber that has a neck diameter of .2465".  I guess I could acquire the tools and put down the time to learn how to do this and then spend the time doing it, but I was thinking that if there are some guys in Canada that do this routinely for profit, I'd rather have it done.  So...does anyone do this as a part-time business?
