6.5 SLR

Hi All,
Has anyone had much experience with this one?
Looks interesting but have read that the lapua brass can be fiddly to size etc.
I have enough projects for now but no harm in thinking about it...Accept future cost 8)
Like the idea of a wildcat without fire forming.

Re: Canberra Queens

I'd recon all the gas bags are at home, I'm still recovering from Connaught. A wild guess for me would be: Intermittent rain with wild wind changes, some technical difficulties with the targets, followed by a few crossfires and a great time at eagle hawk figuring it all out. May a great time be had ...

Re: Bisley style shooting

...South Africa doesn't get hot... I am detecting some verbal irony. And yes it would get hot there, although Bloemfontein is quite elevated. Since sarcasm is regarded as the lowest form of wit I prefer to go with irony :D With heat being a possible safety concern for our TR comrades maybe this cou...

Re: Bisley style shooting

Phil, You've highlighted something that I for one had never considered. As you say F-Class shooters can dress much lighter. For that reason it may be better to look at F-Class only events for warmer times and places, and also think carefully about 2 vs 3 per target, and consider reducing the number...

Re: Somchem S365 South Africa , Next World Champs

Re: Another newbie

Welcome to the sport!
With the dollar value of some importance, can you get a 308 face bolt for your tikka then build from there.
New barrel and stock
With a barrel vice you can then shoot it as a 223 as well.
CRM do a tikka based F class rifle.

Re: 6.5 PRC

Hi Frank,
If you have time to post some info on this round would be great.

Should be a good one for the gunsmiths fitting new barrels :)
