Re: HOLYCOW Dustin

It is my prediction that the first ever 40 x 40 fired in highpower rifle silhouette will have used a cartridge propelling .264 inch diameter projectiles. Which ammunition company responsible for the development work on this round will be represented? Will it be Lapua, Hornady or Remington? Of course...

Re: HOLYCOW Dustin

I just arrived home from the range. Was practicing with a .260 and 7-08 on my animal swingers. Don't be jealous....you'll be retired someday. :wink: I will not debate you, Dustin. But I will add my two cents to those eyebrow raising comments you made. The original game of highpower rifle silhouette ...

Re: Sierra .284 diameter 197 grain bullet

I have not tried it or have plans to. You might need a faster twist to stabilize that big missile at the speeds we normally launch at. I was given a few boxes of Sierra GameKings 7mm 175's recently. I ran 50 test loads of 40.0 grs. I4064 with it in three 7-08's this past Tuesday. All bench tested on...

Re: HOLYCOW Dustin

I have to agree with you, Ken. I have shot shoulder to shoulder with that team since they became regular faces at the St. Louis HP regional match. Also at the last two Nationals.

Re: HOLYCOW Dustin

Those record scores were fired at the Texas and Oklahoma matches this past September. A state record score of 52 x 60 was posted at the Texas match and a very nice tie score record of 38 x 40 posted at Oklahoma. Both scores were fired with the hunting rifle. The combined ram X count for those two ev...

Re: Classification Changes

I for one hope we stay with the current book system. But if we are forced to the electronic reporting system, I as a match director WILL NOT be the one entering individual scores. It will be the competitors responsibility to keep his own scores reported.

Re: Nostalgia

EQ Guy, I am familiar with that range you mention having shot there several times. I lived in Reno, NV and worked in Sparks during a two year job transfer from spring '96 through spring '98. Finding silhouette matches was not a problem in the area. I shot two seasons of HP and SB at SVSC and also SB...

Re: Nostalgia

The Ruger M77 is a great rifle,Tony. Mine was a tang safety 7x57 for 4800 shots. At the time it wore a 6.5 x 20 Leupold with fine duplex. It helped put my name three times on a Wyoming State Championship trophy, and a CO State Champ trophy, too. 8) And, it was the very same rifle Mr.Bonner used for ...

Re: Another inquiry...

........still nothing, no reply. I will bring an extra rifle and ammo just in case he shows up. :wink: Every year since I took over MD in 2003, I get a dozen calls or emails about what is silhouette all about. Maybe four individuals in that time actually showed up and shot a match. I have not had a ...

....from a new club member, my 5th or 6th this year. It will be the part about standing up shooting, not prone with an AR-15 in my reply that he will realize it's not for him. :wink: "Hello, Bob. I'm a member at CRC and saw that you are putting on a match this weekend. I've never shot high power sil...

Re: How about some Lever Action scores????????

Jeanne, in no way was I expecting you to provide us with a match report. You have your hands full I well know. Your efforts are very much appreciated. There were 160 plus others there, some active posters on SC, that could of and should have posted at least a minimum effort update. Please do not be ...
