Transonic Bullet Stability

Great article in 6mm-BR about Transonic Bullet Flight. Well worth a read.


Supersonic bullet shadowgraph

UPDATE:

There is a discussion on Varminting UK about which bullet/rifle combo's have been proven to remain stable through the transonic and into the subsonic stage. Read more here:

Another good blog site


Ryan's Range Report

There's an interesting article today on 6mm-BR:

Follow the link within the article to the blog site, it's well worth a look:

Some good videos on their YouTube Channel. I'm following quite a few good YouTube channels now, think that'll have to be the subject of a future post. Let me know if there are any you think are worthy of including and I'll do top 10 or something.

I've updated the links page too.

New shooting forum

http://varmintinguk.freeforums.net/

Great new forum for people who actually go shooting and don't just talk about it. Keyboard warriors need not apply!

Gear Reviews - Blog site

This is without a doubt one of the most interesting and informative websites I have ever found on shooting:


Great blog for gear reviews with real world test results. The level of detail they go into and the range of gear tested is unsurpassed.


There is a particularly good test one tactical scopes. Also, good information on what the people who are winning are using.

This website is like a book you can't put down. I'm hooked.







Does Barrel Twist Rate Affect Muzzle Velocity?

There is a good write up on 6mm-BR today of an extract from Bryan Litz's new book Modern Advancements in Long-Range Shooting.


Does Barrel Twist Rate Affect Muzzle Velocity?

The results are surprising. 5 fps for a 4" change in twist.

I've also found out you can now get some of Litz's books on a kindle.

Lapua's New Products Brass

Lapua will introduce 3 new cases to its brass line up in 2015:


  • 300 AAC Blackout (300 BLK)
  • 7mm-08 Rem
  • 8x57 JS



I'm specifically interested in the 7-08. I’ve just received my 7-08 and I’ll be doing a reloading guide for it soon.


Lapua hasn’t updated its new products page yet but read more at 6mm-BR.
