Tough conditions to be load testing, more fun than I had at work. What happened to group 5? Is that a wind change?

it was very tough conditions, group five was a hot barrel and I thought to myself good enough so really it was me :wtf:
doesn't matter though I'm retesting groups between #1 and #2 target again
it is a keeper :thumbsup: and the roo's are in big trouble :drinks:
I'm very happy with it especially everything being secondhand on it, it was a gamble
its my hobby and what I spend my money on since I gave up ciggies 10 years ago :thumbsup:

Have you accounted for the increase in.price of cigs in the last 10 years. I remember pack of 20 selling for well under 10 bucks when i used to work at a shop. and then got told that when a friend moved to aus he was paying 2bucks a packet and smoked like a chimney...even the cheapest 20 packs are $20+
I am always right... repeat that 50 times

a little tool l have made to check for a carbon ring in my dasher because l have been experiencing pressure every now and then,
its not my idea but l thought some may be interested

Image

l shortened the neck on a case and fitted a fired 22 rimfire case so it will slide snuggly inside the neck of the case and fit the neck diameter of my chamber
this way l can keep an eye on the carbon before l get any pressure signs :drinks:
l should also say that this rifle has a tight and short neck, the reason why l need to keep on top of the carbon ring
it IMO would not really be necessary for a factory chamber

There is a new electronic bore scope available that is miles ahead of the electronic bore scopes to date. This one has a 90 deg mirror which really is an essential part of the scope so you can look at the bore like the barrel was split in half and looking down on the cross section. Previous electronic scopes lacked this mirror and could only look ahead, they also lacked the close focusing to get a crisp clean detailed picture. Best of all this scope only costs $50US it works out at $90 Aus all up including delivery.

The scope is a Teslong and can be purchased direct from the manufacture www.teslong.com it takes a while for delivery from China which is a shame that we cant buy it from Amazon like in the US as they are getting them delivered very quickly.

So if the .22LR case gets stuck on extraction then you have carbon build up?

The tool Marksman has made is to measure the neck area of the chamber. It is a tool that needs to be used when the chamber is totally clean to start with a measurement can then be taken. This becomes the benchmark. From then on the measurements are largely comparative. If he gets a reading lower than the standard then something is blocking the tool in the neck area. This is most commonly carbon. 99.9% of the time.

Hmmm...interesting...

So...exactly where does this carbon ring build up, & how easy does it happen. ..?..

And i assume you've had that chambered to pretty tight tolerances marksman, which brings me to ask how delicate must you push that tool in to feel the carbon...?

the tool is fairly snug to use but the way it is used is to measure after chambering and closing the bolt, l know what it should be because l own the reamer and have a print for it, when l have found problems is after forming brass but it will be handy for checking from time to time
this could be made for any 22 cal case with a 22 rimfire case

l have looked at the teslong bore scopes a while ago,
dmoran from the elite long range competition site did a review but it was not the new $50 one that will fit from 22 cal it was the older NTS150B
l think you may be helping me spend my money sungazer :lol: :thumbsup: :drinks:

here is a graphic from Tony Boyer's book "the book of rifle accuracy", page 156 that shows where the carbon ring would be.

I have worn out three 22-250 barrels and haven't been happy with the accuracy of any of them. Have been shooting 22PPC benchrest, then down grading these to field shooting when their best barrel life is gone. By keeping everything the same (Remington 700) swapping is quite easy. However I'm very impressed with the 22 Dasher specs, specially now Norma has come up with a better case which requires less work. I arrived on this site after Googling 22Dasher and look forward to seeing how it shoots.
