Re: is .356 legal for CLA?

So what did the silhouette committee determine last year?
Seems like verbal symantecs with rimmed and semi rimmed. As the only difference between the two types is how far past the case body the rim extends.

Re: is .356 legal for CLA?

And as CLA is NRA sanctioned, then it would seem that the NRA would be the final determination.. and as clear in this article in the Amercian Rifleman, the 356 is described as "rimmed".

Re: is .356 legal for CLA?

Umm , the only place I've seen it described as a semi rimmed is on Wikipedia. Every thing else from the time they first introduced it up until a couple of years ago has called it a rimmed case. Still begs the question, if the 444 marlin is a legal case, why not the 356/307, both use identical rims a...

Re: is .356 legal for CLA?

Not sure why any one would label the 356 or the 307 a "semi rimmed" cartridge.

Re: is .356 legal for CLA?

Form cases for the 356 from 444 marlin.
Would seem to me if the 444 a "legal" cartridge, the 356 and 307 would be too..

Re: Opinions please .22 bpcr sights and scopes and bases

Nothing to be sorry about Dick..
We had a DZ, it was a good scope, and the mounts are great, but that 8x was just a bit much for off hand shooting. So we sold it.
Love those B5's and now with them offering more than just the standard cross hair, they are just great.

Re: Opinions please .22 bpcr sights and scopes and bases

Ive yet to run out of windage with either the MVA or Baldwin Schuetzen sights. They are both more than tall enough for the 22bpcr matches and will probably shoot out a bit further. Yes a spirit lever in the front will help keep you from canting the rifle.

Re: Opinions please .22 bpcr sights and scopes and bases

For the scope, the MVA B5 with the #2 mounts is hard to beat.
For iron sights I like the MVA Schuetzen soule, paired with a Baldwin front.

Re: Big Changes

Just guessing here, but if they run this like they do the BPTR classifications, you'll be issued a card for every discipline. In the BPTR we are issued classification cards for midrange position, midrange prone, and long range. So I would assume they'll issue silhouette class in all the disciplines ...

Re: Big Changes

This is something Competitions has been floating around for a few years now. It was heavily discussed on some of the BPCR forums when Ranney first floated the idea. The biggest problem is going to be how quick will the NRA be about getting scores reported to a shooters activity list, and new cards i...

Re: What is your favorite metal polish to polish cases with?

Using the corncob media I like a goodly dollop of Brasso on the media,let it run a bit to get mixed in and then add the cases.
Wet tumbling with ceramic a couple of drops of dish soap with lemon, and a tablespoon of lemishine.

Re: 3031 or Varget

Varget is slower than 3031, more comparable to 4064. I tend to like the slower powders in the 30-30, but 3031 is never a bad choice

Re: Common actions for 22BPCR?

I don't believe any of the reproductions would hold any particular advantage over an original refitted with a good barrel, properly fitted and chambered. Finding the ammunition that a rifle will shoot well at 200 meters in windy conditions is the main thing to work on. The Miroku lowalls certainly b...

Re: Common actions for 22BPCR?

Pretty much what Brent said, mostly one version or another of the 1885 winchester and the various 44xx stevens dominate.
