Re: 39 animals in High Power!!

Awesome news! I'm sad that I wasn't able to attend this year. I shot beside Kalvin a couple years ago in a smallbore match - super nice guy. During the match, I couldn't understand why he was having so many misfires. When I asked, he just smiled and said that he was using the extra time before the c...

Re: Need aftermarket Stock Sako P94s

I can't help with the stock, but I'm your guy if your friend needs to find safe storage for any excess 5-round magazines.

Re: Silhouette Auto Score Excel Workbook

Thanks for sharing. Can you share the password to un-protect the sheet so that I can customize to our format of 2x40 matches for each rifle. Here's a copy of our layout without any of the awesome automation features you've added. In addition to the match and class winners, I'd want to use custom for...

Re: CZ 457 Varmint Precision Trainer Question

Thanks for posting the picture of the dimensions.

I've heard about a box-jig used for inspecting rifles at big matches - does any one have dimensions/instructions to make one of those jigs?

Thanks,

Re: 2019 CBC Championships

Any words of wisdom about travel arrangements for someone that would be flying in? Allen, I'm not a local, but enjoyed my trip to Pe Ell immensely a few years ago. If you can afford the time, highly recommend taking the long way to Pe Ell from PDX - grab a rental car at the airport and head West to...

match director in training

Our long-time silhouette match director is off chasing Bambi's pa in the woods so I stepped up to run our monthly club match (4 - 40 round matches). I arrived early to set the targets and set out the registration and score sheets - it took much less time than I had allowed, so I was able to pace ner...

Re: How do most people dry their SS tumbling media?

I don't do anything to dry mine either. I rinse and drain using a wash basin, then leave the media in the bottom - the small amount of water remaining usually evaporates before I'm ready for the next batch. No issues so far.

Re: Rules 1.6(e) 1.7(d) 2.12 No State Membership Required

I like that our National (Canada) and Provincial (British Columbia) championships are open to all, and recognize both Open and Resident champions. Residents are expected (maybe required) to be members of the Provincial/National sanctioning association.

Re: 35 Rem for CLA-- legal but used much?

I started into lever action silhouette about 2 years ago and started shooting a big bore gun last year. I had a Marlin 35 remington and a 45/70. I chose to use the 35. I cast a gas checked RCBS 200 grain flat nose. 10.5 grains of unique. Accurate and will take rams. My bullets end up at about 210-2...

good thinking jbzeus

very exciting to see someone working to expand our sport and create a silhouette shooting opportunity at another club

I doubt I'll ever get to Illinois to shoot silhouette at your club, but I appreciate your effort
