Re: New Silhouette Scope

I offered the use of my standard rifle and several hunting rifle class rigs which only succeeded in producing a change in topic. One ground crawler actually told me that he's never hunted anything and does not have a hunting rifle 8-| I also suggested that with their expertise, superb equipment, and...

Re: New Silhouette Scope

My club has a version of PRS called ' know your limits'. The use of AR's is encouraged. But the precision rifles that were there were the epitome of tactical rifles; the scopes alone were easily over $3000 a copy. Everyone of these heavy hitters was really big on showing off his rig during conversat...

Re: New Silhouette Scope

Its simply a question of the interest in fixed power scopes. The tactical craze has every sniper wannabe bucking up for the latest fashionable tactical scope to put on their 22lb rifle along with a bi-pod, range finder etc. Silhouette is a more of a hunter's game and hunting is out of favor with the...

Re: Weaver Scopes are History !

They were always superior to leupold in their adjustments. I have two in 16x with the old steel tubes (el paso manufacture). Both are clear and crisp with excellent parallax adjustments. The current Weavers with 1/8 minute clicks were/are very nice but the 1/8 minute clicks are a pain--the 1/4 minut...

Re: Silhouette in Alabama?

I seem to recall that there used to be HP silhouette a while back at Red Stone or Nuntsville? What happened to that? I'm sure its been a long while back.

Re: bolt failure

Another anecdote ....my client had a brand new Marlin in 45-70 and bought a box of 350 gr Hornady ammo. During his attempts at sight-in shot number 14 from the box detonated destroying the rifle and putting shrapnel in his arm. The detonation was catastrophic literally consuming even the cartridge c...

Re: bolt failure

I suggest that the cartridge detonated...it was probably defective in as much as the damage even to a poor made action required considerable pressure. As an anecdote my clients were making zip guns using antenna tubing for barrels. They fired 22's repeatedly and good enough to kill. No doubt a weak ...

Re: NRA Score Reporting Form

In response to Sporty's observation, most of the competitors at my recent match had their new classification cards indicating that they sent in their old scores. However several had no clue that they were to send in their old scores so I copied and sent them in for them. Not everyone reads this site...

Re: NRA Score Reporting Form

Interestingly we had our first high power club match March 24. We shoot two 40's . I used the new form. I opened up the tournament site, put in the tournament ID number, hit the score here at the bottom and the new portal requires the tournament ID again and an Access Code. But Willis I ain't gots o...

Re: New NRA Competitions Portal

Easy access and sign up. My classes are actually correct and my rotten scores from the 2018 Nationals show up (darn!) Our first HP match is this coming Sunday and I'll report back on my experience with electronic scoring ;)

Re: Bench Rest Rifle Club Regional entry form

Remember to include your NRA number on the entry form. If you don't have one then use your NRA competitor number. If you don't have either that's OK. A legible and valid email is also a good idea :ympeace:

Re: NRA Score Reporting Form

I have several questions that I'm sure someone can answer: a) the reporting form requires inputting NRA # , Names and address for each competitor for each match...how is that a reduction of work for the match director. Seems to me that the 'books' were less work and related problems; b) how does rep...
