Primer Consistency



Large Rifle Primer Performance

Written by LAURIE HOLLAND

This thorough test assesses the consistency of several commonly used Large Rifle Primers and has some results you may not expect. Very well written and very useful.

I also found a couple of other articles on this subject. Whilst not nearly as well carried out of written, still useful information to add to the discussion.

Transonic Bullet Stability

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

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

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