I haven’t seen anyone review the match yet so here we go…
a) Be safe – This is a have to, not a want to
b) Don’t forget any equipment – You’ll be ‘that guy’ forever….
c) Have a plan – Be open to change if needed to meet conditions
Life and responsibility has gotten in my way for the last couple of months so I was really looking forward…[Read more]
.308 and 6br for me, I haven’t shot much lately and need to catch up.
Bipod for both rifles.
I will help as well
FTR .308 please sir…..
Steve I plan to be there.
I will be shooting a 6.5×47
I’m the 1411 guy at 1k. Magneto speed says average mv of 2638.
If I true my app to for the 1411 at the target by adjusting hold over it says my mv is 2614, between 1/2 and 1 MOA difference.
I’m not doubting either piece of equipment, I’m thinking adjusting the bullet bc to true the app is the way to go for me. That’s the path I’m going down till…[Read more]
John, it is up to the more experienced to make sure you have a safe and enjoyable match so that you continue to come back. Not just linden where some of us call home but everywhere you go.
You’ll do fine, just have patience and don’t be discouraged if you win last place like I did my first match…..
Every one of us at some point was a first time shooter. It was a good experience since we all continue to shoot. I was lucky enough to grow up in an environment that allowed me to observe and learn from two people with the same passion for shooting but for different reasons. One for hunting and the other for competition. Same methods with…[Read more]
Edit: Additional Info………
I use a 6 o’clock hold on the x ring and try to do all my ‘scope dialing’ during sighters and hold off for wind when shooting for record. I feel I have lost all focus and momentum when I start dialing during record shots and am just chasing my tail.
For me focusing on the bottom of that circle helps my…[Read more]
Safety to me means showing up every time with the proper tools to be successful.
– Research proven load combinations to reach the target distance
– Careful loading techniques with chosen components
– Load testing prior to the match to prove consistency and safe function of the
load in my rifle. Safe function being no obvious signs of pressure…[Read more]
My .308 started life out as a Gunbroker auction factory Remington LTR. It had a 20″ 1:12 twist fluted barrel. I shot my first ever mid-range prone match the first time I was invited to shoot at Reese bottom with 168 game kings over Varget. It made a trip to Britt Jones last year. The original action now lives in a
30″ 1:10…[Read more]
My range report won’t take nearly as long as Brett’s
Planned to go Sunday, work shut me down and I didn’t get to go
Congratulations to everyone that went.
Scott Parten .308 F/TR
I’m planning to go Sunday.
Thanks Wynne and Surrell for the kind words and advice, hopefully I’ve learned something watching you guys.
When you have a purpose, you pay attention (At least it helps me anyway). The best advice heard in a long time is from my mill manager, “It’s OK to be good, getting better is what matters”.
I am guilty at sometime or another of each issue we had Saturday
b) Mis-fire from either poor reloading practice or poor rifle maintenance
X2 what Kenneth said. I’ll help any way I can.
Mr. Danny I use a Sartorius GD503. I bought it on eBay for about $350. It measures to the kernel of powder.
Scott Parten, .308 win, bipod
She hit me up too mr. Richard. Military gal she said. Wanted to be my friend as well…..
We look for stuff like this all the time at work so I took a hard pass as well.
Thanks mr. Wynne for keeping an eye on this
Thanks to all that responded.
I have a new firing pin assembly coming as a spare and I’m going to get the tools to change springs.
Im also going to take another look at how I’m sizing my brass.
I’ve have a couple of misfires lately, two out of 30 shots today. One or two testing loads recently. This is the only rifle I’ve ever had this happen. Primer strikes look normal other than it doesn’t go ‘bang’.
Pulled bullets and both had powder.
Using BR-4s. Brass has several firings. All are hand primed. Bolt has been bushed.
Bad primers?…[Read more]
