Re: Would anyone else like to see the weight limit change?

:-t No. [-x I have a Annie with a bumped 6.2 to 20 and it only weighs 7.5 pounds. Jerry, please correct me don't shoot with an expensive carbon fiber stocked Anschutz 1712? I argue that not everyone can afford to build a rifle with a custom stock. I am speculating here but maybe one reason why Lever...

Would anyone else like to see the weight limit change?

My question is there anyone else who would like to see the weight limit on Small Bore Hunting rifles increased? With Leupold discontinuing the popular Silhoutte scopes should the silhouette committee consider raising the weight limit to allow heavier 30mm tubes variable powered scopes to be used? I ...

Re: Any rule changes ?

I just want to assure everyone that we (Ridgway Rifle Club) do want the Nationals but on a rotating basis. We have a great staff as well as community support. But it is just to much to do it every year. If we could rotate sb/hp one year and LAR the next we would be very happy and would be able to p...

Re: Any rule changes ?

If Ridgway is not interested in hosting it the perhaps the Nationals should be moved to another permanent location?

Other NRA National Championships are held at a single location and I cannot see why the discussion to do the same with the SB and HP Nationals shouldn’t be held?

Re: Any rule changes ?

DavidABQ,please stop with the false news of Ridgway ( spelled with no e),that it is their or NRA intent to have Nationals there on a permanent basis.Ridgway is perfectly content with the alternating format. This kind of rumor causes only conflict and does this sport no benefit. What does matter is ...

Re: Any rule changes ?

David, we just got back from the 2019 Smallbore Nationals at Ridgway. That area of Pennsylvania is pretty much an epicenter of silhouette with many, many locals being active competitors. Unlike Raton where competitors and match administrators swoop in for the match and swoop out. The Pennsylvania p...

Re: Any rule changes ?

I suppose we could all speculate about the National SB Silhouette commitee making Ridgeway the permanent home for,the Nationals?

It would give us something senseless to do for a bit of time.

Re: New Silhouette Scope

The Weaver EFR or Leupold? Leupold. I did some looking around today and it appears that the EFR is still on Leupold's website, but every outlet has them listed as not available. Disappointing, we are just getting back into smallbore and I could use at least three of them Even the 6.5-20 EFR scope h...
