  1. Well the stage description could also state to start empty. That will depend on the match director Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Looks straight forward to me, and doesn’t have any restrictions on length of magazine or capacity of magazine, only the number of rounds that can be loaded IN the magazine. No more than 8 rounds may be loaded into the magazine at any point Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I would say no since most rules I’ve seen require .308 minimum Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Have always just “tapped” my barrel to make the POI same as POA for the slugs.
  5. Just ran one again this last weekend with shotgun, got 3 doubles, 2 fell off and got 2 hits on the last 2. 5 shots and 10 plates...it was sweet Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. It was the best match I have competed to date, definitely going to push some of the design on my local club, they will probably bitch about it though haha. Sorry to hear that on your rifle, all my equipment ran great for once, I was the issue here. These old knees just about had enough by the end though and definitely coming back next year for more abuse Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Made it through the match, all the load building paid off and I hit the 620 yard shot after about 15 rounds. 18 x 24 steel on a MGM T-post hanging by a piece of 4" fire hose. Problem was a 25mph 2:30 wind and a twisting target. At least I hit it, that's all that matters right? What really had me thinking was the 180 yard slug shot and the 130 yard pistol shots! All hits but it sure got inside my head before doing them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks, I appreciate that! I know it can get better as I improve my technique. I was very satisfied with the readouts of the load and I have all of the input from here to thank for that, you guys have taught/given me a ton of good advice. Thank you! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Received some sierra 77gr and loaded up a few...they shoot better than the hornady and I have read that somewhere before. I am sold! Loaded 23.6 gr of TAC at 2.20" here is the data for the 5 shots. Still not a sniper yet but it is big progress! Mean Velocity - 2627 fps SD - 9.7 Spread - 27fps .856" 5 shot group at 100 yards
  10. I will probably just use them up as a mid range on the spinners or plate racks, bought 500 and hate to see them go to waste.
  11. Not off topic, I have not seen or heard of a 3gun match to go that far but some around south Texas do go to 300 or 400. This originally started in an effort to build a round in preparation for the Seekins Precision Hard as Hell match which advertised out to 620 yards for rifle. It has been posted here a ways back that the longest was around 450 and with a stage gun. It has wandered back and forth but I'm using all the information I can get!
  12. I am one of those mere mortals...I have been looking for a good deal on some Sierra's but nothing has come up yet. What list are you referring to? Only reason I picked some up was because of this thread and the good things said about it. I tried Varget, did not like the it metered at all, I guess it wouldn't be that big of a deal if I went out and bought a Chargemaster or something like that. I am going to shoot out the components I have and try some others down the road a bit, but for now, I have about 14lbs of powder to burn up
  13. Well, I think I might be about 90% and have decided on a load to finalize. COAL or thereabout 2.200" BTO of 1.7935" using Hornady 75gr BTHP with 23.4gr of TAC traveling at 2627fps. Which puts my Razor BDC hashes under 600 yards so I will tweak this a little more to get the FPS up, SD lower and the ES smaller. Looks like I will need to be right at 2700fps to make the BDC cover the distance. Last trip to the range I shot out at both 100 and 200 yards and came up with several consistent 1 MOA groups with the BCA barrel and tried the BPM barrel as well. It did shoot a little better so it mig
  14. The scope I have now is the Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50, I have only shot with it once and I don't think it is the scope as I can actually see the grid lines now. Got a few things to try out such as holding the follow through on the trigger, put 6 rounds in the mag to shoot 5 rounds, the last batch of bullets made using the Base To Ogive measurement instead of COAL. Then we will see what to do next. I believe these last rounds are built to the best of my ability.
