Re: Time for new target stands...thoughts please!

Our club has a set of resets, made a long time ago by Mike Stimson in Texas. You might check or post on the IHMSA forum. They work well, have an integral metal backer, a round thing to wind the string around. They nest against each other in a 30"x40" space when not in use. I can take some pics if yo...

Re: 2019 NRA SB Hunter Rifle Match 3 & National Championship

Congrats to the winners (of course) but also to the many shooters not in master who gave it their best. To us mere mortals, to see scores of 35+, just hard to imagine the work and effort that goes into those scores. Being a handgun silo guy, I realize those in Master class are 50 times better than t...

Re: 1% of the one percenters

A search of this forum (well, the classifieds) has turned up ZERO such guns in the last year. Not even right handed, much less lefties. A search of gunbroker shows exactly ONE and it starts at $1000.00 for a RH. These guns may be selling for less via word of mouth, but they are generally unavailable...

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.
