This is a “SMALL” video update on the Corsair 7mm since I carbon fiber sleeved the barrel. Hence the title named TEASER. A full future long range video is soon to be filmed and produced. This adventure was cut short as i was having some technical difficulties with many of the slugs in the field with no way to correct it till I returned home. Casting bullets is a real learning experience and there will be more info shared in the near future (i was experimenting with mixtures). But this TEST will be redone and probably at a longer range. Needless to say, i’m quite happy with what I was able to achieve before I shot this target and after. I managed to shoot 1\4″-5\16″ 75 yard group earlier and this was after testing different hold techniques on this gun. Again, more info to come.

I bow my head for your shooting on that range, and not only…
That rifle of yours is really beautiful. The carbon fiber structure perfectly adds up to the structure of the wood used for the stock.
Impressed, really.January 11, 2015 at 1:34 am #217014
Thank you kind sir. I really appreciate the compliment.
Stay tuned for moreJanuary 11, 2015 at 5:51 pm #217041JensParticipant
You bet, I will. I can only learn. Thanks to you for sharing all your knowledge.January 16, 2015 at 10:06 am #217291
Very nice results, congrats!
How much clearing do you still have between barrel and airtube?
Compliments of my dad as well, showed him the way to your youtube channel,January 17, 2015 at 1:50 am #217325
maybe a HEAVY 32nd or a light 16th”
But its clear all the way upJanuary 18, 2015 at 10:16 am #217388
That’s not much, but it’ll do i hope. 🙂
No notable POI shifts with different fill pressures?January 19, 2015 at 4:56 am #217456
Yes sir, with this gun, when you go up or down 100 psi +-, you DO notice a POI shift. These guns have no return spring and they are set up to make the MAX amount of power as per the guns design.
With it being a SIMPLE QB design, it would be pretty EASY for a machinist to REMAKE you or anyone else a receiver. They are simple. In other words, you can have someone make you a custom receiver as TALL as you want so you can add a full shroud.January 19, 2015 at 11:29 am #217467
Do you know if the POI shift is because of the airflow via the valve or because the airtube is flexing and touching the barrel?
Some Corsairs, those of the first series, did have a valve return spring.
Mine sn. 0065 hasn’t got one, like yours.
I’ll keep my Corsair original, no need for a shroud on the range here. 🙂January 24, 2015 at 10:03 pm #217928wmyendParticipant
Tofaz, where did you get the rabbit target? Would be nice find a prairie dog target just like it too!January 25, 2015 at 3:04 am #217938
LOL……i literally stole it from my hunting buddy Paul. He promised to make both of us one but he only made himself one. When he came to shoot with me, he brought HIS rabbit and i begged him so that he felt like crap for not making mine. SO HE GENEROUSLY GAVE ME THIS ONE………lol! Ahhhh, remember guys, BIG PUPPYDOG TEARS WORKS FROM MAN TO MAN TOO……lol!
ITS CUSTOM MADE!January 25, 2015 at 3:17 am #217939knifemakerParticipant
