    Thanks Tony

    I don't disagree with one thing you have said and have picked up a couple of pointers. I have experienced some of those things you have pointed out. Another aspect of having someone watch one is to...

    Thanks guys

    I'm going to try a 6 Beggs for score shooting in the HBR classes. I have a 6 BR currently but wanted to try something a little different. The 6 BR is very good @ 200 and 300 yds. Wonder if the Beggs...

    Generally speaking

    will a 308 bolt face work for .220 Russian cases, extraction and ejection wise? If not, what is a solution to make it work?

    Thanks,

    Ya might try

    getting a replacement hook or a new Extractor kit and replacing the existing hook. Perhaps more that the notch was done to it. A ring reducing the size of the opening could be silver soldered in...

    Air rifles are a lot off fun

    I have a couple and early on in the BR thing I bought a good Position rifle and competed with it. I knew more sophisticated rifles would come along and sure enough a year or two later the Thomas was...

    I don't understand

    what the intrigue is with distance shooting, beyond 300 yards. I don't get it. The equipment demand is similar in cost I would think. I just don't understand why people want to lie on the ground to...

    How about the ejector spring?

    Is the ejector spring very soft? Perhaps the spring has been modified to try to limit the amount of ejection?

    Great Post!

    One of the biggest problems in the benchrest sports is the reluctance of those on top to share EVERYTHING. Egos do not permit it, unfortunately. There are far too many people with big hat sizes in...

    There was an article

    In PS magazine years ago about crowns where someone did a number of different crowns on the same barrel and if my memory serves, the crowns made no difference in accuracy, even the one hacksaw cut....

    I have tried the weight behind the muzzle

    and its how I tuned my EV 2. I made a one oz. weight that slides freely up and down the barrel and hold it with a nylon thumb screw. I found tune about half way up the barrel. I have a Brass one on...

    Great news!

    I got involved with Air Gun Benchrest a number of years ago now but there was so little opportunity to compete, I gave up. I still have rifles though and may try again. The Slug making thing would be...

    I have tried a number of times to join Airgun Nation and keep being bounced around. Have they closed memberships?

    I have nearly a Keg

    of SMP 735 I've been sitting on for a few years. I figured in a pinch it might come in useful :). It will make guns go boom and make bullets fly. Commercial re-loaders use it so it for sure works....

    I have a Cut barrel

    No,

    I put it in the gun safe until I get home in the spring. There is something in the path between the trigger and the cocking pin that seems to be interfering but I'll be dern if I can see what it is....

    My EV2 developed a big air leak some time ago and I haven't been able to find out where it's leaking. Can someone recommend a person who might fix this rifle for me please?

    Thanks,
