  1. The 178 ELD-m shot pretty good in the 24” but the 16.5” really seems to like the 175 smk. I’ve got to get out with the rifles and do some more testing now that the ranges are open again. I’d love to know what Hornady is doing with their superperformance line. The 165SST Load will go out the 16.5” barrel at around 2700fps, most other equivalent loads are around 2550fps. Expect to lose 150fps going from 24” to 17”
  2. If the Hogue stock was just a bit more rigid it probably wouldn’t be a half bad stock for a budget gun, it’s just too flexible as is. Ok for a hunting stock but not for precision. I did the same thing as you with my .223 SPS tactical. Picked up an HS precision take off and swapped it out. I did nothing else and turned it into a one hole rifle.
  3. Having taught the BB course in Canada I would suggest starting with that as an outline. You don’t have to adopt it wholesale but you could parse out what you feel is relevant. A couple of suggestions. Since safety Is and should be the primary purpose, whoever is going to teach should have some skills but understand it’s about safety not teaching them how to be future top competitors. They don’t have to be GM’s but they should be able to demonstrate any skill competently and be able to focus on teaching safe methods. Also the students should have to do some drills on the timer under reasona
  4. This is my first but I’ve already bought more
  5. Tracks done, getting closer
  6. I remember when we were shooting 115gr bullets at old major. 1550+FPS. I had loads for my P9 in 9x21 That was back in the day when rifle primers only were used for major and after a couple loading in your brass you had to glue the primers in...
  7. I like working on the kits but I need to finish something, I keep moving on and starting something else lol
  8. Given that it’s a factory barrel I’m not sure. It doesn’t seem like a particularity fast barrel. The 24” load of 44.9 was around 2650fps and in the 16.5” it was right on 2500fps
  9. Probably around 200? After the last session I really wasn’t happy where the accuracy level was, it will shoot some loads ok like AA 168 match, but other match not so much. So I took everything apart and reassembled it and gave the barrel a really good scrubbing. Now it shoots awesome. I’ll give it another good cleaning and then try some previous loads through it and see.
  10. I do the same thing, I just trimmed the safety down, broke all the edges and polished it so there’s not any abrasion now.
  11. I wasn’t but I’m starting to be
  12. I think the brass made a difference, this was the first time trying Starline .308 brass. The long rifle is the one I’ve used for PRS the last two years and this is the best I’ve seen it group. It’s normally a 3/4” rifle. The shorty has been a bit of a struggle. It shot OK but not fantastic, now it seems like it’s coming into its own. Maybe it’s just broken in lol
  13. 44.9 worked best in the long rifle and seems to shoot OK in the short
  14. Out with this again, looks like 44gr Varget with the 175SMK is dialed in.
