Re: Spirit level front sights for lever actions

Rex, the best advice I can give you is ditch the bench altogether. It's best used as a place to put your ammo and a cold drink on a hot day. The less you rely on it the better. I always ask folks who shoot only off a bench what do you do when your 1/2 mile in the woods. Do you strap it to your back...

Re: Spirit level front sights for lever actions

zeros for my new 3030 were greatly different between sighting in and the match. Were you sighting in offhand or off the bench with a rest? The recoil is different, and that will effect POI. To get at least close with bench rest sighters, I use a technique shared by Mr. Steiger: put the rest right u...

Re: Spirit level front sights for lever actions

. but regardless, find out how you hold the rifle and the zero your rifle for that degree of cant. Not for zero cant. This portion of your statement is actually the main reason I am interested. I am not sure exactly why yet, but zeros for my new 3030 were greatly different between sighting in and t...

Final Reduction
Sure would like a silhouette shooter from this forum to get this.
I don't get notifications of PMs so please send an email.
Can't get the email function to work, so how much does the rifle weigh? What about length of pull, and trigger weight? Thanks!

Re: Spirit level front sights for lever actions

The level will not obscure the target. That wouldn't make any sense for any shooting game. It might be a bit of a distraction however. I use a level on my BPCR, as to 95% of all BPCR shooters. But when it come to shooting chickens offhand at 200 meters, I ignore it. My offhand "natural position" is...

Re: Spirit level front sights for lever actions

How much would a small cant change your POI at 200? It is the indian, not the arrow. About 6-8" unless you are holding the rifle at a 45* angle... Seeing how it isn't specifically EXCLUDED in the rules and they have been around about 4 times longer then this game and none of the top shooter that I ...

Re: Spirit level front sights for lever actions

How much would a small cant change your POI at 200? It is the indian, not the arrow. The degree of can't seems to depend on which rifle.I experimented with it a bit at my one and only CLA match, and it seemed to make a difference between hitting horn or rump. Interested in the sight as a training t...

I have searched the topic and can't find a conclusive answer. Appreciate your wisdom. http://stores.leeshavergunsmithing.com/new-style-17a-f...

Re: Anschutz Options

It fits in all of the other McMillan benchrest stocks so I can't see where it wouldn't fit this one. Especially if you're buying it flat topped. Thank you. Do you know of anyone that has built a standard class rifle out of it? I think I have seen a hunter class in one of the Pharr stock variations,...

Re: Anschutz Options

Me personally. It would be a Holeshot 2500X Single Shot. You need to find somebody that has one, hold it and shoot it before you spend that huge amount of money. You may not like the way the custom actions feel. If you build a hunter rifle out of it, you will need to be careful with barrel length a...

Re: Lighter Springer alternative

I will respectfully disagree with some of the posts. I had a R-7 and an R-8 and although they were lovely guns for plinking, I could never get them to shoot anywhere near well out past the pigs. I have had an R-9, a HW-77, an R-10, and several TX-200s. They all shot well and ,yes, they were harder ...

Re: Lighter Springer alternative

The 10 meter PCP rifles are too heavy for people with severe back problems. We have experience with all the PCP rifles. The Anschutz 8001 Club is the lightest available. It will be so small that it will fit your wife but you will not be able to shoot it well. Even your right hand will be too big fo...

Re: Lighter Springer alternative

I am guessing you have 18 yards to shoot air pistol at home. You do not need somebody to host air pistol matches for you. Form a club. Pay the NRA $35 per year. The NRA will send you a club number. Buy one set of targets. Decide which days you want to shoot matches. Send the approved match request ...
