I think you're WAY over analyzing things. Or at least my perspective is that at a certain point, you're going to just have to try and find out for yourself. JMHO. Knowing full well the variety of feedback one gets on forums, and not just this forum. Ideally, you find folks where their interests align with yours and that helps. But there are many folks that some of this stuff is academic (as in they don't really shoot all that much) or they don't give a lot of context of what their use is.Yes I see those peoples comments, forum gods and show up to the range and shooting is horrendous or NRA instructors who have questionable gun handling skills. I guess it’s all subjective.
I had a discussion with my gun builder on tuners or brake and just tune via hand loading. Luckily, his shooting preferences or interests aligned decently (not the same) as mine. That and there are many who are able to tune their setups for similar caliber, distances and accuracy expectation. Personally, I'm not striving for ultimate accuracy. If I were, I probably would have gone with a setup way different, and closer to the F-Class or benchrest setups. I watched a few of the Lou Merdica videos, as well as some that are on the "members section" of a forum. While that guy has seemingly been there and done that, not quite been doing what I am looking to do. If you are looking to do that, that will be awesome. And looks like quite expensive, as well a tremendous amount discipline to get there. They buy barrels but bunches, powder but the 100s of pounds, whole lots of bullets, etc. Craziness! But I can understand that that's what it takes (or can take) to get to their level.
So…. What did you order?Waiting on an HV 6BR 26” bartlien barrel.
So you can test the “harmonics”
Calibers are 243/6mm, 264/6.5mm, 284/7mm and 308Holly hell you don’t mess around!!!!
Cartridges are looking like 280 AI, 7mm-08, 6.5x47 lapua, 6x47 lapua, 6BR, 6.5 Sherman, 30 Sherman magnum. Possibly another 6.5x284 and 243 AI with Bartlein 400MODBB Barrels. All the short action gonna be switch barrel off a defiance currently a 6XC.
Nice, what did you order? For your BR?What calibers are you going to run?
I just got in some barrels, stocks and a chassis as well. But might be a little til l get things going.
Don't tempt me. HahaI tried a Kahles and man that glass is nice. It’s built like a tank too.
No promises not to, but don't see that in the foreseeable future. Unless say I win the lotto or something.
I just put in my order for the glass for my .308, so pause on spending for a bit for those larger purchases. But, I did refi recently, so no payment for this month. :hmm:
What did you like about the Timney triggers?
I've tried all and I went with Timney. My stuff is geared mostly for hunting and I like the range of products and pricing from Timney. I've got some older bolt-actions with non-replaceable triggers so I didn't want to have mix of single and 2-stage triggers. Plus I was used to the single stage from hunting when I was younger. Whatever I could replace with a Timney, I did. I didn't know they made a Glock trigger. Now I may have to get those. Lol.

Brass arrived today. Ordered from Whidden. First time ordering from them and very impressed. The box was packed very well, with each box individually packaged, gaps in the box filled well, and taped very well. They even offer a gift after your first order. I’ve been eyeing their dies, so this might get me to try more of their products.
Bullets on the way. So very close to loading up for 6.5. Think the barreled action is still a couple of weeks away though.
Found the Hornady ELD match in stock.Which dies do you have in mind? Someone mentioned to me the SAC dies are the way to go. I’m sure their great but $350 each die does puts a dent in the wallet.
Next need to order dies. Might have my 6.5 setup ready before my .308
I don't mess that that scenars voodoo magic.i would test if I had access to anything greater than 100 yards… .
No, I haven't. With my 1:10 barrel, I've only shot 168 gr and above. I was intending to try up to the 220 gr range, but I've only gone up to 185 gr. The Berger 168 gr hybrids have a high BC for that weight range. I just started testing with that bullet when I got busy. I will likely stick with the heavier Bergers for a while. Because I have them and recommendation from my gun builder.
A buddy has shot the 150-160 gr range, but his barrel twist is much slower than mine.
Interesting test, eh? You should try. Go test um, Go test um, go. . .
