Re: Silhouette Rifle Rules Changes - 2018

49er, I want to shoot the Martini in the 22 BPCR, not lever action. Plus, it doesn't have a tube magazine. I can't believe it's not legal for that. Brent, Dustin does shoot lever gun. All 3. He runs the Louisiana State lever match in December. He runs a good match. A little thin on prizes ( I got a ...

Re: bolt failure

think 54.18 bolt. It broke the back part of the bolt off. Just in front of where the handle is/was, and jammed the bolt in the action. Yes, the bolt body. Shrapnel included the bolt handle, the black spacer behind it, the indicator spring and pin, firing pin, cap and aft part of the bolt Body. The s...

Re: Silhouette Rifle Rules Changes - 2018

Guess I'll have to dig out an old Martini and put a scope on it and try out BPCR. I've got a couple from 1870 -1880 that were converted to 22lr about 1900. You could probably use that martini in a local match if they had the room, but it's not a "legal" rifle per 22bpcr rules. What???? An original ...

Re: bolt failure

I don't know. I just welded the swinger back together at the range. There is a bit of force there. Makes me want to zyglo my bolts. Emmett, you ever done any of that? Dustin, It was a dare and you called me on it. I will never dare you to post anything again. LOL. At least you didn't put Lapua rules...

bolt failure

Sorry to change the subject, but a friend of mine recently had an uncontained failure of his rifle. He did everything right. He was shooting a factory, unmodified Anschutz 1907, using Eley Edge ammo. The bolt was fully closed and locked. It was an aimed shot. He was shooting 3p. He was wearing glass...

Re: Silhouette Rifle Rules Changes - 2018

Dustin, if we wanted to shoot bolt rifles, we would. Some probably do. Personally, not interested. At all. Happy to hear that others like it however. You can put a scope on a lever rifle and shoot it, or on an automatic, or a pump, low-wall, high-wall, whatever. Doesn't have to be a bolt gun. You c...

Re: "Post or Bead insert..."

I don't think Mr. Farmer writes or interperts the rules. I wouldn't feel comfortable until I get word from the Silhouette committee. Those are the people who will make the decision. Al Foust probably can read those tea leaves better. If nothing else I'll protest you at the Texas match so we can get ...

Re: cards

I'm impressed. They got them in the system pretty quick. I was surprised. Mine say I'm a non member, which is surprising as I am paid up till 2025. Missing 20 cards between all of us. I made a spread sheet. I look forward to seeing the online reporting software and being able to look up other people...
