  1. I would be interested in any updates as well a year and a half later as I'm getting ready to have the same treatment done on a 260 barrel.
  2. Old Lodge Armory might be worth checking out as well since they are in Virginia.
  3. I think you'll find that between the 260, 6.5x47, and 6.5 Creedmoor they are all close. It'll come down to personal preference. I have two rifles that I have shot in matches, both sniper matches and just banging steel. 1. Remington 5R MilSpec in 308 -- bone stock but its a shooter. It's in a AICS stock. The thumbhole on the AI is a love hate for some people... I recently switched to the Viper skins so it got rid of the thumbhole. I'm pushing the 175SMK's at 2725fps with Varget. 2. .260 Remington on a Remington action and Rock Creek barrel at 24". This sits in a Mcree stock. I am shooting the 140 Amax about 2810 fps with H4350. The 6.5 bullets fly so much better than the 30 cal bullets. I'm having another 260 built on a Surgeon action and Krieger barrel that will sit in a McMillan A5 stock. I'm mostly likely going to turn the Remington 260 into a straight 284 Win since its the same bolt face and can be used on a Short action. I'll use the Mcree stock. It's probably going to have a 30" barrel and will push the 162 Amax well over 2950 with ease. The BC on the 175SMK is good too. One more comment since you mentioned the 338 Lapua .... do yourself a favor and look at the 338 Edge. It can be built on a long action so it doesn't require the XL Lapua type action. The Edge will push the 300 SMK's over 2900 easily. Look for articles from Shawn Carlock. Ya I'm gonna build one of these too so I can shoot it at a mile. You're more than welcome to lay down behind either rifle and send some rounds down range if you want to check them out.
  4. My wife got a Mac Book Pro just a few weeks ago and that thing is slick. I think I've been using it more than she has
  5. PM sents ...... My Superior tuned 170 has ran like a top all year.
  6. I would start at 4.7 and work up. It's probably going to take 5.0 - 5.2g to make major depending on your barrel. You'll probably find a ton of info with a quick search.
  7. Got the photos back in photobucket after a glitch...
  8. I got the black finish ... melonite or nitride finish, I'm not sure what Matt uses. I'll get pics up soon
  9. Yes, indeed it was a FUN match ... with the hardest stage I've ever shot. I'll be back again to try again nextt month. The 22 side match was fun too.
  10. Read thru this.... http://www.brianenos.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=127521&st=0&p=1439051&fromsearch=1entry1439051
  11. WOW, it's been almost 2 months since I last posted something here .... so much has happened since then. I should be in Vegas now for Open Nationals but I had to cancel that trip due to changing jobs and I didn't feel comfortable taking so much time off after just starting. Obviously shooting is something I do for fun and without the job there is no shooting. There is always next year, right?!?! Anyway, probably only one to two more outdoor pistol matches this year to run a few rounds thru the new open gun. I am going to shoot tactical rifle matches for the rest of the fall. I shoot USPSA for FUN and it some people have made it not fun. I will not be shooting with those people any longer and will not waste anymore energy on that. Catching up on match summaries .... I shot the Indiana Section Championship at the end of July. This was my first major as a B Open shooter and I ended up 3rd B. The heat was brutal but I shot consistent all day but had 2 misses. Below are the videos .. I could have picked up the speed in certain areas and need to have more patience on steel. I did wipe out on stage 2 but kept the gun pointed in the right direction and my finger off the trigger. Popped right back up and kept on shooting Stage 2 (the fall): At the Area 8 match I finished 5th B in Open. I was really rusty after only shooting one local match between the IN Sectional and A8. Day 1 was a struggle with one M and 2 gun malfs. Day 2 was much better but I already had dug a big hole on the lower point value stages. Only 1 M for the match.
  12. OH YA! I'm signing up. Gotta figure out who I can drag through the mud with me!
  13. My open gun from Matt should be here in October. Yee-Haa!! I got mine a week ago and just last night put the first 100 rounds thru it. It is so tight but it ran perfect and is flat as hell. I need to chrono my ammo since this gun has 3 holes. The ammo was 173-174pf at A8 in a different gun with no holes so I should still be 168-170pf I'm guessing. I'll get pics up this weekend.
  14. Has anyone done the Warrior Dash? 3.5 miles of fun and mud, and more mud? http://www.warriordash.com/index.php I'm going to have to find a place to do it in 2012!
  15. My 170 runs like a top. I can get 29 in it but it is tight so I normally just start with 28 in it unless I really need to start with 30 in the gun.
  16. I see reference to combined overall results, are they posted somewhere?
  17. Manny Bragg class the past two days. My ass is draggin' but it was definitely worth it. Too tired to type much else now but if you ever get the opportunity to take a class, DO IT! More later....
  18. And they are letting anyone from Ohio shoot the match for $7.00, right Roy?!?! LOL.
  19. Just wanted to share the root cause of this problem in case somebody else has the same issues. The cause of the cases not being fully inserted into the shell plate was the block that pushes the case was rubbing against the ejection wire and it would not fully push the case into position. Did a little bending on the wire and adjusted the camming rod properly and now everything work like it is supposed to.
  20. Just noticed USPSA has been updated for July and I'm now in B class for Open.
  21. Shot the McDonald, PA match last Sunday and finished 5th out of 18 in open. No videos for the match. Got off to a slow start on the first two stages which were 8 rounds and a 6 round classifier (09-07 It's not Brain Surgery). After that I had 3 solid runs on the field courses. Only two Deltas for the match (out of 96 rounds). Been slacking off on my dry firing for the last week due to other personal issues. Probably within a day of putting all that behind me and moving on. Change is good. Manny Bragg class is next week so I still have some ammo to load for that but I'm really excited about the class. Perfect timing before a couple of matches. Report/thoughts to follow.
  22. Check the adjustment of the camming rod to make certain you're getting full travel. Also make sure the slide is not dirty or dry of lubricant. The adjustment to the camming rod seemed to do the trick. Thanks!
