Re: Defiance Rebel barreled action

I too looked it up. From the photo lineup of various cartridges, it appears to be halfway between a 6mm Dasher and the 6x47 Lapua. Less recoil than the 6.5 Creedmoor, enough punch for rams? Interesting...Alpha is making brass for it...that makes it sound pretty legit. I'd like to see some numbers on...

Re: Cheap(er) spotting scopes

I think the high power shooters (conventional, not silo) would be the ones to ask. seeing a bullet splash on a black target is one thing. Seeing a bullet hole in a piece of paper, especially a black bull or on a black scoring ring is much more difficult. I've tried spotting 6mm holes in a light gree...

Re: Bergara B-14R 22LR

While this rifle may not be right for some shooters, It appear it is right for me. I shoot long range benchrest silhouette at NRA size targets out to 200 and this will be perfect! If any one knows when these will be available to the public, just a little heads would be valuable, There is just too s...

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

Pyramid Air sells a nifty biathlon airgun target that is a string reset. While based for 10 meter shooting, the concept is easy to copy, modify, and build or rebuild to your purpose. We have a couple for our 4H program and they work well. Although sometimes we have to tilt it a bit because the 10m r...

Re: Bergara B-14R 22LR

They didn't make this rifle for us. they may not even know we exist, or if they know about us they don't care. This rifle was made as a practice option for the PRS or F class folks, with a nod to the NRL shooters. Some of these disciplines have a 2# minimum trigger, while others allow "any safe trig...

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...
