Re: First BPCR Match

nope. If it bounces, pinwheels the x-ring of your own target - it's a miss. It's a tough life out on the 1000 yds range

Saw it happen more than once this weekend. :)

Re: First BPCR Match

Well, to be honest the .38-55 would not be allowed in a BPTR match. There are minimum bullet weights and velocities that are required in the name of safety. Not that the bullet won't go that far, but the rules are the rules.

Re: First BPCR Match

Cool bounce shot with the .38. Thats not something you see every day. Not to stretch you too much, but keep BPTR on your radar too. One day you and Jeannie will have to launch at 1000 yds. It can be even better than playing bumper pool with the rams (however, bounce shots are scored as a miss). Anyw...

Re: Visiting NSW Australia

Oh it's "fun" trying to take a gun to AU! The permits (that's plural) are state by state, so if you want to visit NSW and the go to South Australia, you can double the "fun" And after all that, you must get 2 more permits to allow you to "export" your rifle back home. 3 wk and I get to find out if I...

Re: Took the Plunge into BPCR .22lr

Welcome to the club. I see on Facebook that Jeannie shot very well indeed, though I haven't see the scores yet. Sure wish I could have been there.

Re: Behind the Berm

It's a joke. There is no list, nothing happens, but apparently, someone gets some giggles out of it.

I fell for it too.

Re: Combined 22bpcr and CLA

It is important to remember that this sport got a lot of it's initial get-up-and-go from people that would mount Crosno or Shaver liners in their Big Bore BPRCs and shoot them in this game. Those guns are good bit slower than a purpose-built .22 bpcr. Perhaps the seemingly long relay times should be...

Re: Combined 22bpcr and CLA

In a sanctioned match, no. But if the match director is making exceptions for things like lever guns than a Martini is certainly a reasonable non-legal gun to use. But you won't be a fully legal competitor. (Martinis lack a hammer, among other things).

Re: .22 bpcr regional Tappan Hill GC, Minneapolis, Kansas.

Ha! I'd like a piece of that wager... But alas, I will not be there. My rifle isn't even going to be functional for another 12 weeks while I wait on Lilja for a replacement barrel.

Have fun, I definitely want to hear how this comes out. :)

Re: Combined 22bpcr and CLA

the only reason I worry about shooters taking their CLA smallbore to the range for .22bpcr is they may go home too discouraged to try again. By way of comparison, my first fly fishing set up was a 9 ft wet noodle of a rod with 10 wt level line. Nothing could be worse to start a young teenager in fly...

Re: Combined 22bpcr and CLA

REALLY SMALL!!!!

I believe they are 1/4 the size of the CLA Rifle targets shot at the same distances. (1/2 as long and 1/2 as tall).

The chickens are so small, sometimes, you can't tell they are even there. And don't think I jest.

Re: Combined 22bpcr and CLA

Sounds okay to me, but will most of them be able to reach 200 m with the sights on the average CLA rifle? I'm not sure.

Re: Ridgway 2017 Match Dates

Congratluations to Lester. Looks like he just shot himself into Triple A, if not Master Class.
