Your new Sinclair Competition Shooting Rest will provide you with years of reliable service. Please read the following instructions as your new rest require some final assembly prior to use.
The cleaning tool head is slotted so as to hold the cleaning felts and cotton rolls. To insert the felt or cotton roll, back out the set screw, insert felt or cotton roll (centering in slot) and tighten set screw until it is no longer protruding from the tool head.
Flash-hole deburring is a one time operation that should be completed prior to loading new brass. This tool can also be used on fired cases that have not yet been flash-hole deburred.
There are very few differences between loads for long-range target shooting and hunting. When I work up a load for either, I look for a lot of the same things, including accuracy and uniform velocity for on-target hits.
Now that you’ve selected the best cases, deburred the flash holes and uniformed the primer pockets, it’s time for the last step of case preparation – trimming. Trimming your previously- fired cases to proper length is a step that must be done carefully, especially when you are trying to make the most accurate, consistent loads possible.
I know the current thinking is to build “Across the Course” rifles on an AR frame (space gun) or something along the lines of a Tubb rifle but I have always enjoyed shooting a bolt gun.
After firing your brass, the first task is to clean the cartridges. Residue from firing collects on the outside of the case. Some residue may be present along the body but most of it is concentrated in the neck and shoulder area.
I started varmint shooting close to 50 years ago and just recently got hooked on F-Class competition within the last few years.
I sometimes talk to shooters about “across the course” shooting and I take for granted that everybody know what this type of shooting is.
For as many years as shooters have been sending rounds down range in high power competition, there have been just about (probably even more) that many “correct” ways to properly clean and prepare the firearm for optimal performance.
Reloading dies if taken care of properly will provide years of service to their owner. Most dies are hardened and then micro-polished for that mirror finish many of the dies exhibit.
Keeping good records on our shooting hobby is an important practice that all of us should do a better job of.
