I sure would like to hear back from anyone that has already gotten thiers back. NEF did not provide many details about these barrels, and I have to wait till this coming week to send in for mine. I would love an update from anyone who has gotten one.
Stan, what I mean is that I got 5-6 MOA with Barnaul HP and FMJ in a rifle that does about 2 MOA with cast and less than 1 MOA with handloads using the Sierra 125 .311 Pro Hunters. Results were just as bad with some nameless Russian surplus.
Wow...a 9.45 twist....that is pretty cool. These guns should stabilize some big heavy bullets....exactly what I was hoping....now we just have to see what the throat is. If it is too much....will possibly not be so accurate with factory ammo or reloading 123 gr bullets..unless seated long, but would be great for big cast bullets or with big Sierra Matchkings. On the other hand....if the throat is short....it is pretty easy to get it reamed out and accurized a little bit. I can't wait.
This is a cartridge that would do just fine with a 1/12 twist! Not that the 9.45 won't work and indeed it might be fantastic. The 9.45 just does not seem to have any precedent or purpose.
Lessee, what other .311 cartridge out there has a 9.45 twist? This is coming across like a matter of conveniance in terms of rifling buttons already on the shelf! What is 9.45 per foot when translated into turns per meter?
are they selling rifles in 7.62x39 or just barrels ?
this is a slick round, i believe it is based on the 220 russian which is the root of the 22 and 6mm ppc. it may also be the cause for all the wsm and wssm rounds too. does it have a small or large rifle primer ? a small one would be preferrable.
with a 310 groove, it should be easy enough for cast bullets too. although, a regular 308 groove would give us more of a bullet selection.
Ya got that backwards scatter gunner. 7.62x39 is the parent cartridge for those mentioned, It was developed in the 40s a response to the shortened 8MM the Germans used in the Strumguvier, (spelling?) The worlds first assult rifle. 8)
