    Clearly you have received a lot of very good advice. I'll only add a little as I'm one of those who tend to try and reinvent the whee and understand where you are coming from. The mentor thing is #1...

    Al makes an extremely good point. It is impossible to learn what the flags are telling you when you have a rifle that's only capable of hitting the aim point once in a while. It is also true that...

    I don't know that there is such an animal. If there is, I've never seen it. But, don't despair. You can do this. Boyer's and Ratigan's books will help, but the best way to learn, in fact probably the...

    If we are talking about reading wind in competition it's not really necessary to understand everything that's going on. In some cases there is entirely too much information to act on. Fortunately, it...

    Buck Creek UBR 8/17 results

    Sorry for the late posting. Only got these results last night. I don't know much about the match other than the mirage was pretty bad at 200.

    Red Brush UBR 8 17 19 results

    Yesterday was a typical Red Brush day. While the wind wasn't exactly strong it couldn't make up it's mind which direction or how fast it wanted to blow. The first couple of relays at 100 went pretty...

    Very good advice. I've already learned that over 3400 with an 80 gr is pushing the envelope on a hot day and surely don't intend to go through all that again with brass. Primers falling out when the...

    Al, I'll have to confess that I haven't. When I considered the brass prep and fire forming for the Grinch, I folded under the pressure and went with 200 pieces of 6.5 Lapua. I have attempted to...

    Wish I could help with that Frankie, but my only part in that match was calling it and taking the pic. You should contact Billy for a correction.

    I can't say what every FFL will do, but the one I use would accept it with a new serial #. Another option, although it would take some doing is to remove the barreled action from the stock and then...

    Gerald,
    Mike gave you some very good advice. Having competed with a 222 I can tell you it is very competitive at 100, but just doesn't have the horsepower to do much at 200. IME- Modified Class is...

    Thanks for the reply Mike,
    At this point I haven't found any Lapua available which is one reason I thought to try some Starline. Will let you know how it works out.

    I've never used any Starline brass but I've read here and there some folks seem to think it's pretty good stuff in pistol cases. I recently noticed that they are making 6.5 Grendel brass and I'm...

    Sometimes you get lucky. A friend and fellow shooter just called. Turns out he has a barrel with that chambering and history suggests it may have even been chambered with the same reamer. He also has...

    Unfamiliar chambering in old benchrest rifle

    The owner of a local gunshop, who also shoots UBR matches with us, recently bought several old benchrest rifles from the widow of a shooter who passed several years ago. I tend to be a sucker for the...
