Thread: New custom rifle arrived

  1. #1

    New custom rifle arrived

    Well at last my new toy is here.


    A custom .223 Akley improved with a 1/7 twist tru- flight barrel designed for long range.


    Anyway Enough talk , here is some pictures.



    It just gets better.


    Loaded some mild reloads tonight to break in the barrel and fire form the brass, I have heard that .223Ai fire forming loads can be still very accurate.


    After the initial shoot and clean dozen shots this was the 5 shot group I shot straight after.


    Fireforming load with no load development. 5 shot group in the .3s


    80grain AMax with N140.


    This group was shot in 15mph + full value winds.


    Looking pretty good.

    Cheers thanks guys. The App is Ballistic AE on Iphone/Ipad. Its great. Its also good to carry out group analyisis like I have done here. Also if you shoot a gong say at say 500 yards you can photograph the gong, set the refreence, input the bullet markings and check what you group, give you your group details in inch, MOA, vertical and horizontal despursion etc etc

    Its great and well worth the money.

    Also a very good ballistic side off it too.

    Went out for a play tonight, only had time for my dad to have a quick go, I managed to get a group of 5 down range.


    I ranged the distance that I shot tonight and last night,MIT was actually 125 yards, so even more impressive.


    Managed this group tonight, in very strong winds again, shame about the flyer, the group is .21 MOA with out the flyer, even with the flyer it's still only .43


    Looking good guys

    cheers thanks Pete.

    I was thunking on trying Vit 140 in my .204 as I have lengthy off it, but saying that my .204 shoots really well with Reloader 10, so best left alone if possible thing.

    Is your new build your .20 Tac.?

    yes new build being the Tac
    running the bergers on vit 130 with superb groups
    the 140 seems to suit the lighter bullets though

    As you say I'd stick with the reloader 10 in your case dead is dead
    ive really enjoyed load development with this rifle
    I've gone in with two other guys and bought the latest magnetospeed chrono
    so looking forward to seeing what speeds I'm getting
    my Tac is really quiet also people are quiet shocked how quiet it is
    regards pete
