  1. Put the 24 inch 243 barrel that came as extra with the gun. Shooting factory ammo Hornady 95 sst. Strapped it into a rest. Set scope with one round. 1st 3 shot group 3/4 2 ND 5 shot 1/2 3 Rd 5 shot 1/2. Really strapped it in (lead sled) 2 back to back single hole 3 shot groups. I had to JP tank break from the 308 threaded onto that Barrel recoil was pretty much non-existent don't have a clue how many rounds are on this Barrel so I'm going to go ahead and order the lri 6mm Creedmoor and shoot the 243 till it shoots out Sent from my SCH-I545 using Tapatalk
  2. thx, that's what I thought. got this thing as a practice / back-up. IT just wont group, 8 different factory and handlaods. on the lands off the lands, slow ,hot. Just cant get under moa. most @ 1.5 moa some out to 2.5
  3. going to rebarrel a rpr , from 308 to 6mm Creedmoor. I have talked with the LRI guys , I think im going in that direction. does anyone have any reviews of other manufactures ? thanks in advance
  4. not for sale. I got in on the first round of 224 Valkyrie`s from JP rifles and ( should ship anyway now) planning on putting the mark 5 on it for some prs gas gun matches.
  5. New mark 5 5 X25 to be released at shot show for sale the following Monday. Supposed to be designed for prs. ( with all the goodies added in the $2700 range) I Have a 50% cert for the Leopold. Spoke with the custom shop guys Friday. That's where my info came from. I Personally run nightforce nsx on all my long rifles, to include the ruger. ( you really cant go wrong running a nightforce, not claiming its "the best" but it will do everything you want it to do WELL)
  6. i am with p.e. Kelley. Just want to shoot some gas gun club matches, with factory ammo. My JP barrel/bolt is paid for and is supposed to ship mid Jan. Optics will be the new mark 5 ( won a cert) supposed to be available right about the same time. My home club is core. So i have a great place to put it thru some paces. I will keep progress posted.
  7. I like my Burris xtr 1x 8 Sent from my SCH-I545 using Tapatalk

  9. thx just got back from RO duty at a club match got to play with a few. going to get the that combo. thx
  10. Most of the larger retailers are running this combo "package" in the $1100 range. Bushnell 202540KC Elite 1 Mile Conx Laser Rangefinder with Kestrel Sportsman . Seems to be a good beginners starting point. All the reviews for the Leica were good. As were the Gunwerx all in one. But @ $1700 , I was hoping this combo would get me thru my first year or two. And starting a " better future rifle fund" would be the way to go.
  11. Bushnell 202540KC Elite 1 Mile Conx Laser Rangefinder with Kestrel Sportsman ? Going to shoot PRS next season. I got my primary and back up rifles setup for next season. I worked as a RO for a match this year and shot the 2 gun series this year @ C.O.R.E ( my home range ) Both rifles are shooting sub MOA. I am going to take the intro to PRS and intro to long range classes, before my first match. So I have a good beginners foundation and been coming up to speed with gear for spring. My questions are electronics related. the bushnell/kestrel combo is what I am looking @ Any input would be great! thanks in advance
  12. DOTHAN endless summer blast coming up. welcome and come have a "blast with us" I have a complete lender rig, I would be happy to help a new shooter out.
  13. I used spray contact cement to stick with paper plates to the a zone. seems to have helped my focus /center. Instead of just brown.
  14. I took some used targets home , used contact cement to secure white paper plates to the Alpha circle. set up dry fire and live fire ( co2 powered BB gun, same weight as original. Slide blows back just like the real thing ) didn't take long ....the A`s started happening. seems I was not focusing my front sight on the alpha area ( too much brown) the white paper help me !
  15. check out this topic "Homemade 3 gun carts" ton of ideas
