Re: air rifle for practice

Adam's reply =)) notwithstanding, I shoot a P-70 junior, or sometimes the 4H club Air Arms 200T or Champion Choice version, about $550. I suppose the Daisy CO2 rifle is an option. Its good practice, I have a large yard with a couple sheds & 3 woodpiles. So far this year, Team Chipmunk has lost 9 pla...

Re: Silhouette near Indianapolis Indiana

Widcat Valley at Lafayette is also IHMSA. They have rope resets for 22's, but 1/5 scale is at 25, 50, 75, 100 yards & non sanctioned rifle. Nice bunch of guys though. If your friend is open to shooting handguns, have him contact me through Riley Conservation Club or pm me. If he is open to other thi...

Re: Silhouette near Indianapolis Indiana

Danville Conservation Club was running SB rifle up until last month. They had a couple of light turnouts & cancelled their remaining matches. I run IHMSA matches at Riley Conservation Club about an hour west of Indy, but turnout is so light I have resorted to shooting swingers. We have a member that...

Re: FS: Premier bumped Leupold

Hey hawkeye, Nate here. What other scopes does he have? Anything suitable for Smallbore prone? I'd consider 1/8 and 1/4, and probably not bigger than 3/8 MOA dot, or a simple fine crosshair. I dunno about a dot in prone...never tried it. Anything Tucker converted? Thanks! Hi Nate, I think this was ...

Re: Weatherby CFP

Any of the 300 blackout or 223 family would easily work. 6 TCU, 6x47 (from 222 magnum brass), 6x45, 6.5 TCU, 7 TCU, 7x45, 7x47 (from 222 mag) are all viable candidates, as is the 30/223 already mentioned.Keep us informed if you rebarrel.

Re: When working up a load....

I often use .5 grain increments for load development. I also will load and shoot my most accurate (to date) reload when testing others, so I have a standard to compare to on any given day. Stay away from black powder in your 308. If manufacturers wanted you to shoot it, it would be in their reloadin...

Re: Champion's Choice has RWS Target Rifle on sale right now..

Thanks for the heads up. We have a startup collegiate rifle team. This ammo isn't 10x, but neither are they. At 50 foot targets, this will suffice. I ordered 6 cases.

541 buttplate

I've acquired a 541 and am learning how to shoot it. I don't yet have a vest. The buttplate is smooth & slick. Do I merely replace it with a thin rubber pad? Can I put skateboard tape on it? What have others done for a budget solution? It wants to slide on my shoulder. Thanks in advance.

541-T base & rings

I think I want to replace the one piece Leupold & turn in rings with a Weaver style setup. Any insight as to what base I need? I want a bit taller rings methinks.

Re: Big Changes

IHMSA cards contain all the same info as NRA except for the 2 highest scores notation. Name, address, year, membership #, classification for each category in each discipline that is updated by the MD. It's a simple format that allows the MD to put all your match scores for that day/event on a single...

Re: Big Changes

My NRA rifle experience started about 2 years ago, I've shot a few smallbore matches, and have a record book. I've been shooting IHMSA handgun silo since 1983. We have always used cards to record our scores. There are 24 categories in IHMSA compared to 16 for NRA rifle. IHMSA scorecards are a simple...
