Re: Hornady 243, 103gr ELD-X, first samples report

Nice vid Bob!

Jerry, I don't have a chrono so I'll have to guesstimate velocity until I can get to use a chrono.

I have seen seconds before. :D These go well beyond what Sierra sells as seconds. Hopefully they shoot ok and if they shoot it will be interesting to see if they do any better on Rams.

Hornady 243, 103gr ELD-X, first samples report

At the SHOT Show I talked to a rep from Hornady about 6mm bullets for Rams. At first he didn't understand the problem but after some conversation explaining the situation I think he did. "Oh, you have to knock the steel plate off the stand, not just hit it?" Initially I was asking about Hornady bond...

Calverton Shooting Range

I saw a posting that Calverton Shooting Range in Calverton NY has Smallbore Rifle Silhouette.

Can anyone confirm that please?

It is on this list http://www.muck-boy.com/Shooting%20Rang ... 20Page.htm

What is wrong with the word cowboy?
It is sexist, it should be cowperson.

:roll:
cow1
kou/
noun
noun: cow; plural noun: cows

a fully grown female animal of a domesticated breed of ox, used as a source of milk or beef.


Perhaps 'Bovineperson'?

Re: Close focus adaptor

I got mine from Leupold and it is a quality piece of glass. It works just fine. I can tape it to any scope I have and it works. Be aware Leupold has 2 different threads on the front of their scopes. Old ones vs new ones. I think the Leupold close focus adapter is for 50 feet, right? I am looking fo...

Re: Close focus adaptor

I got an answer on another forum. A 'close focus adapter' is a fractional diopter lens, 1/4, 1/4, 1/2, mounted between the scope objective lens and the object being viewed. (Is that a coincidence?) The focus distance of the close focus adapter is determined by the diopter power, the power of the sco...

Close focus adaptor

Can someone explain the optics of a close focus adapter? I bought one and it works but the glass is of really poor quality so the sight pic is a bit blurry, the light pass through is not so good and it pinholes. I would like to understand the optics of close focus so I can buy a nice piece of glass ...

She switched to 6br. I dont know why, you would think she would get pressure to use the lapua round since she is on team lapua. Anyway she won like crazy with 6br last year
Lapua produces factory 6BR ammo with a 105 Scenar bullet but I doubt she uses factory ammo regardless of the cartridge.

Thanks Allen. Especially since it was your comment about the size of the circle that made me want to look at this. :)

Re: Target image with MOA superimposed

Thanks Jerry. The images on the NRA site are serviceable. They are a little different as they show 1" lines rather than MOA. Yeah, I can do the math. LOL I am looking for a visualization rather than a measurement. :) Still like to find the others to match the one I posted if anyone knows where to fi...

Target image with MOA superimposed

I am looking for images of the C, P and T with MOA lines superimposed on it. I saw them before and snagged the Ram but I guess I didn't snag the others. Please send me a link if you know where to find them.

The Ram looks like this;
