    I turn mine to .0085. Thin, but not too thin. I've reloaded the brass many times since I'm a bench rest shooter and have had no trouble with with cracked or separated necks; yet this thin neck...

    I've shot In a few score matches with Mike at both Tomball and the Dietz range a few years back. There was nothing but awe that this cartridge from yesteryear could win over modern calibers. But with...

    Same experience...

    I had the same experience with a Bauch & Lomb 6x24 Balvar scope. It hazed up inside and the manuf said it was obsolete and would not honor the warranty. They did offer a trade in value for a new...

  6. Well now....

    Unless you plan to shoot this beautiful S&W quite often, I'd just buy the commercial ammo. That's what I did with my 1986 4" Python. Got bored with the extra steps in pistol loading the 38 Special...

    So Sorry....

    Very few could put out as interesting an article as Dick could. I always looked forward to his articles in Precision Shooting. They will remain in the Benchrest history forever.

    Here's what happened...

    One of the members of our club did just that. The only problem was his .45-70 shot two inch groups. A couple did hit the ten ring though.

    I Shoot....

    I shoot in a match with Robert this Sunday. If he doesn't have a spare scope, I'll lend him my T36. That should settle the scope question.

    As to Warranty

    I have a friend that in the mid eighties returned a 24X bench rest scope for a broken reticle (he had purchased it used at a gun show.) After six weeks he inquired to Leupold as to status. He was...

    Yes...

    I use them (125gr tipped Match Kings) in my Hunter rifle. It has a 1-15 twist barrel. They perform as well as the 135 Burger (no longer made) and the 134gr BIB bullets I've used. They are reasonably...

    Seems to me that the high power shooters demand as much accuracy and us bench resters do. If customs bullets gave that much better results, they would be using them and some of them do. But Sierra's...

    1.5 to 2oz is my preferred weight. That's what any of the bench rest shooter I know set their's.
  17. Try...

    Try Bruno's shooter supply. That's where I purchased my Leupold 6 X Hunter scope. Great scope! Weaver also still makes a 6X Hunter scope. It is a fine scope, but the Leupold gives about another inch...

    You're right on...

    The Hunter Class has greatly diminished since the NBRSA authorized VFS. The general feeling is "who wants to shoot with a 6X scope?" One thing about VFS is that with a 36X scope or more, you can see...
