    So I decided to try the Bench rest style?? I don't think I could adapt myself to getting down and up from the prone position with a heavy rifle that I have several thousand dollars invested into the build-up and playing around down there in the dirt with it.

    So, here I am with a rifle that I am very proud of, that I enjoy shooting, and want to join an origination to be proud of at the same time ... Which discipline am I considering??? That is why I am trying to reach out to you guys for guidance with what I have to work with and I have to remember, I am almost 77 years young and it seems like over a 100 years since I was in the CORP. playing in the mud and getting my butt shot at!!

    I hope this helps and I am looking for help from you guys and the oppertunity to see if I can out shoot any of you in the same class??

    Dallas -

    Can't help but feel your confused or been misinformed to competing:
    - First, you do not have to travel out of the USA to compete in F-Class. Safe to say 99% of the F-Class shooters in the USA don't leave the states to shoot.
    And also a very large number do not travel more then a couple hundred miles to compete a whole season.

    - Second, Benchrest is just that, "bench rest". Meaning you shoot from a bench, not getting up and down from a prone position like you stated above.


    Your interest being in Long Range, here is some input to both LR F-Class and Benchrest:
    - 600 and/or 1000 Benchrest have 2 classes, LT-Gun and HV-Gun.
    LT-Gun has a 17-lb weight limit with brakes and suppressors being permitted.
    HV-Gun has no weight limit and again brakes and suppressors are permitted.
    Both classes are shot from a bench, from sand-bag rest, with very few rules regulating the rifle configuration (almost anything goes).
    That are shot for both Group size and for Score (two ways to win).

    - F-Class (F-Open) has a 22-lb weight limit, brakes and suppressors are NOT permitted.
    It is shot from a prone position, from bi-pod or rests of many different configurations.
    That is shot for Score only.

    Hope that helps....

    Donovan;

    That third paragraph in your post sounds like, to be what I am looking for... On a broader sense, I do understand the weight limitations for the different class' (these two class' I have never heard of or any thing about them) I would be interested in the LR f-class, benchrest; 600 and or 1000 yards and look at the two classes.. LT-gun and HV-gun..

    In those two classes, it looks to me like the dividing line in in the weight of the gun.. Not in the calibre of the gun??? Mine is a 300 Winchester Magnum and the weight is about the 17
    pound limitation but can be adjusted down 2-3 pounds or so. I'm going to look up the rules of those two classes.. I have two of the rifles that I have built-up, one is a 300 win mag, Remington 700, LRT.. and the other is a 300 Win Mag, Savage Model 110 FCP.. I enjoy both very much and they are real Coyote getters.. They are both much better than I am..

    I want to thank you very much for the guidance and encouragement...I feel like I am advancing even though I don't know what the hell I am doing....(Grin)

    get the best custom fit ear plugs and buy 30+ db ear muffs. And wear them around all loud noise.

    Suppression will not do what you want and will not allow BR accuracy.

    David;
    I have two pair of ear plugs that were custom made by a professional that made from warm poured wax and carved with the electronic enhancement inside...They are very good, but
    that is the least of my worries at the present.. I am wanting to pull down the muzzle blast from the 300 mag blast to one that is greatly concealed as to my position.. Also; the
    silencer and or suppressor (which are one and the same thing) that I want to use will NOT effect the accuracy in ANY way what so ever.. Once that bullet passes the muzzle, it is not touched by anything until impact.

    The crown, nothing is effected or touched in any way.. At less distance shooting, 1 to 400 yards, the same groups are achieved, with or without the silencer/suppressor!! My hearing is
    NOT effected in any way!!!!

    David, I want to thank you for your input into my problem??

    What kind of suppressor do you have? Ive never seen a suppressor or read about one that didnt affect accuracy or point of impact.

    Dusty;
    I am here to tell you that you have been severily ms-lead from whoever told you that...

    Take a good look at this site!! I will not say which silencer that I got but there are several to pick from..

    Mine is registered through a Corporation and it was much easer..

    Give Thunderbeastarms.com a call and talk with them...1-307-287-2052 I trusted them explisidly and they didn't even suggest any kind of BS

    good shooting

    Dusty - What is the average size of the group you can shoot with those rifles? Three or five shots...doesn't matter.

    I dont plan on putting one on a br rifle if thats what youre asking. Im sure on a 1moa gun youll never see a difference except point of impact
