    Lederer Barrels

    Michael Turner had a thread going on Lederers, but it appears to have been archived. Finally got around to shooting one of the blanks I bought from him. Damn fine shooting barrel and talk about well lapped. I scoped it and it's one of the best finished bores I've seen. Shoots really tight too. I developed loads in high wind and found a couple of nodes that held up well (tuner off the gun). Here's a five shot target laid down in 15 - 20 mph push.



    Four went in a nice round hole and one walked a hair high (probably my work, or lack thereof, on the flags).

    The gun:



    Cartridge - .30 Stingray
    Bullet - 114 gr Martin
    Charge - 33.0 LT-30
    Seating - jam minus 0.010"
    Action – BAT DS
    Trigger – Bix N Andy
    Barrel – HV Lederer 18 twist, 4 groove, finished 23”.
    Chamber – .30 Stingray, 0.331” neck
    Stock – Dixie
    Rings – Harrells
    Scope – March 50X, fine cross hair reticle with 3/32 dot
    Tuner – Bukys TSI

    Jackie - the Stingray is an improved .30 Major. Shoulder is pushed forward 0.035" and the blown out to 40 degrees. I built this as a backup gun to my other Stingray for score shooting.

    I will be receiving my first Lederer barrel next week and I am looking forward to shooting it in our 600 yard matches. It is a 8 twist HV and I will have it chambered to the 6 BRA. I first met James Lederer at the Super Shoot about 15 years ago. He was working for Mike Rock at that time. It seems that he has learned his craft VERY well. Below is a picture of James taken at the SS. Good shooting......James

    Seated the bullet long, chambered it, measured base to ogive, and noted that as jam length. Guess a lot of folks call that hard jam. Bumped seating depth 0.010" below that.
