    Calvin,

    I've have been BR shooting for 53 years. Started in 1969. As a newbie I didn't pay any attention to what was going on with NBRSA/IBS, but I think it involved money and who and how it was...

    Unertl scopes

    WAY back when I started BR shooting I saw a lot of Unertl scopes on UNL rifles.

    Several of the fellows had a "clamping" devise on the scope tube that locked the scope body to the front mount yoke...

    While I don't shoot 22 BR anymore, I still have 2 Burris Minis, 2 Lyman 6x, and 2 Weaver KT-6's.

    They may not be on a par with todays scopes, but were fairly light, had adj. objectives. and fine...

    Benchmark Barrels

  9. John Fry info

    Al,

    That rifle is pretty typical of the rifles John built in the '70's.

    I remember one he did for himself where he threaded the entire length of a Rem. action. (can't remember which model)
    and...
  10. John Fry info

    Al,

    I shot with John Fry all thru the 70's and early 80's.

    He was a tough guy to beat, and along with Manley Oakley, and Tom Sitez,(sp) was one to the top BR gunsmiths in the NW Region.

    I'm...

    After looking at your stock pics, I don't think that is Benchrest stock .

    It is a McMill. Metallic Sil. stock. Forend is the wrong shape and a BR stock would never have a high cheek piece like the...

    If I remember right the cartridge was developed by Harvey Miller. The MCR stands for Miller Custom Rifles.

    It is very similar to a 219 Donaldson except with a 6mm neck.

    Harvey had a fair amount...

    Al,

    Yes I remember Manley messing with the short 6 BR. I think Dan Dowling actually started it, and it was called a 6 Talldog. A few other guys messed with it too here in the NW area.

    Elton, shooting a varmint rifle, won the 100 yard 10 shot agg.

    Hunter,

    Nope didn't buy Weber's stuff. Probably should have, but didn't have the $$ to pull if off. I was in my 4th year of teaching high school metal shop, and was not making a whole lot of $$...
