Lets talk about torque!

If you apply too much torque you may snap the head from the screw, too little and the screw will not hold materials firmly together. The application of measured torque is important…

Review of the Ase Utra Jet-Z Compact moderator.

Sound moderators, supressors or “silencers” as non shooters like to call them have been a controversial subject over the years. First off the bat I would like to debunk the “silencer” myth and give a brief outline of what moderators are actually for… Many people believe they know something because they have seen it multiple…

Building a Presicion Rifle Part 5 – Long range steel in the snow.

I must confess I am a little behind regards writing articles. I have been very busy shooting and testing kit which is very important or I would have nothing to write about! Last week I made the winter pilgrimage to Wales with some of the regular crew with a goal in mind. To run the…

Load testing with Reload Swiss RS60 and the GnZ Precision Rifle build.

I took a trip down to Bisley today in order to run a barrel break in on the .260Rem and do a little load testing. Although the weather was pretty awful the day proved fruitful and results were very impressive. You may have read the previous Presicion Rifle article which featured Mik Maksimovic at Dolphin…

Recently I took one of our project rifles up to Dolphin gun company for a new barrel. We detailed the rebarrelling in the last Presicion rifle build article. I was lucky enough to watch Mik, part owner and head gunsmith, working on the rifle. His knowledge and experience in both shooting sports and engineering impressed…

Building a Precision Rifle – Part 3 – Extended range shooting.

The GnZ Precision rifle build has up to now been a huge success. At both 100yds and 600yds the rifle achieved very good results. Would this bear out at longer range. First we should bear in mind the budget so far.. MDT HS3 Chassis system – £500 Second hand Remington 700 ADL – £350 Second…

Building a Precision Rifle part 2.5.. A quick update from 600yds.

I headed back out to Bisley today with regular contributor Raf and the Precision Rifle project. The project is based around a £350 second hand Remington 700 in .308.. It will end up as a light weight .260Rem. Please head back and check out the first two articles for in depth descriptions of the plan…

Building a Precision Rifle Part 2 – MDT HS3 Stock assembly and DNZ Gamereaper mounts.

After a couple of weeks of paperwork and thumb twiddling the second hand Remington 700 finally arrived (many thanks to ACP Shooting, Sussex, UK). I had been trawling the used ads online and found an ADL (basic model) for £350. The rifle is well used but in satisfactory condition given the price. The barrel is…
