That's shooting well. I've got 100 rounds loaded to test in mine next trip out with a couple bullet weights. I picked up some more Hagar brass to make some NOSGAR up.
I'm watching the usual suspects for 100 lots of the brass to flesh out my stock too.I bought 6 packs of 50 Hagar cases and wanted maybe a 100 more.
Maybe they'll break down the big lots.
I could burn out of the 22N barrels 3) I have with 500 cases.
Let us know when you lift the secrecy blanket on that cat.
Hagar case and a little light 22 cal bullet (I know you like the light ones)
That's good shooting. 94 is dang respectable.Made it to 600 with the 28" 22N shooting 88's
Cold (for a southerner), windy, from behind and quartering both sides.
Switching is harder to call (for me) than a wind from the side.
Did my personal best though, 94%
10 X's, 18 10's, 5 8's, the rest 9's.
The 8's and most of the 9's weren't my fault
18 shooters and I got to look at a lot of pretty rifles.
Looked through a couple upper crust scopes and I am very happy with my Athlon Argos.
Again, 34 X all day.
Do you feel like it is more pronounced now than when you were using the RCBS die set up?I started with an RCBS set (not small base). Did full length size, minimal bump.
Lately my sizing has been with an Redding body die.
I'm using a .222 undersize mandrel in the Lee collect die.
Both had the same problem.
I don't have a borescope and am leery of working to must in a space I can't see.
I usually don't shoot enough factory stuff to get stickage ($$$) but I do have a bunch of bargain 62gr that I might shoot.
It'll give me once fired brass at the least.
With the swabbing stickage wasn't really that bad.
The previous 600yd I shot the 24" BA barrel and during the prep time for the second and third relay I pulled the bolt and ran patches.
Made the day with a little stickage at the end of the relays.
Uploading a cherry picked 10 round string to youtube. My best ever 96. No X's though.
No. Seems better.Do you feel like it is more pronounced now than when you were using the RCBS die set up?
I suppose I'm just asleep at the wheel here. Is this a single shot straight pull AR we're dealing with?No. Seems better.
And the IMR4350 powder is better than CFE223.
It's to the point I can live with it. Sort of. Before it would shut me down until I pulled the bolt (keep the allen wrench for the bolt handle with the ammo out of habit).
I've smoothed the edges around the bolt face, extractor, ejector. Run without rings to reduce the force required to open. This last shoot I ran with a cut down ejector spring and a bolt tail spring (like Lantec).
Next step will be ramping the carrier (like a 1911 bolt stop).
Reducing all the drag to open a bolt.
running the charge up a little just to see.
