Re: Reloading 357/38 SPL.... WTH?

I got four squibs with factory .38 Specials when fired in my .357 Magnum lever action. No separation though. In addition to the squibs and the increased leade (freebore) I'll only shoot .357 Magnums from now on. I have hundreds of 5.0 grains of Titegroup in .357 Magnum cases with Hornady 158 grain X...

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 ?

Is it the "location" or is it the the match director that doesn't want to have to do it each year?

Re: Any rule changes ?

DavidABQ, this says a lot, don't you think? "Ridgway is perfectly content with the alternating format." - hermit5.

It would seem a suggestion to have it there each year would not be in the best interest of Ridgway.

Federally, yes they can and often do.
State, so long as your state doesn't prohibit it. A couple do I believe.
It was returned to my home. The FedEx driver started a friendly conversation when he supposed it was a pistol after noticing the return address.

Re: Stupid rules question

Below is the smallbore hunting rifle rule from the 2019 NRA silhouette rifle rule book. Considered what a Jury will decide if loading a .22 rifle with a single shot is challenged. I suggest asking each jury member before the match to set your expectations. Notice there's no rule stipulating you must...

Pistol out for repair question

I shipped a pistol to the manufacturer for warranty repair. Does it ship back directly to me?

Re: Artificial Support Question

I see the leather vest exclusions with lever action matches mostly as tradition because they aren't stipulated in the rules as a violation last I looked. Rules state heavy leather vests are permitted provided there's room to insert a 4" thin walled PVC pipe so there goes any torso support. The butt ...

Re: Georgia Smallbore Silhouette State Championship Tournament

I'm sorry to see this cancellation. I doubt we can change how people register for state competitions. I know a few shooters at our matches were talking about going to Georgia but I don't know if they preregistered. This gives me an indication of what can be expected with my first NC state match plan...

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 conversa...

Re: Which Smallbore Hunter Pistol?

Thanks for your recommendations. I decided to spend less on a competition pistol and buy more ammo with the savings. After seeing a couple reviews on the Kel Tec CP33, I got one locally. I've been breaking it in and am pleased with its performance in practice off of a bag. I replaced the bright Will...
