Re: Sixty.10 Rattler – Coming Soon

ben,
how you had it set up made you move your right elbow, possibly initiating a varied shooting position.

Re: Tuning Basics 101

rod,
lower light can get some mirage at times, making aiming a little difficult, and potentially handing you a bit of vert.
however it is as you say honest in the respect mentioned.

Re: Mound Setup 101

actually you have to position your rifle to aim at the target. as for reloading without moving position yourself, you have to position yourself around that. the rests are the natural point of aim for this discipline. around that you need to get into the most comfortable position to suit that, as lac...

Re: Mound Setup 101

another way to overcome hard undulating ground for the rear bag is to put a flat sandbag about 1" thick on the bottom. it can have a hard flat surface on the top side if you wish to stand the rear bag on that. the soft underside can will naturally conform to the terrain, filling hollows and bul...

Re: Mound Setup 101

alan, you were one of, of not the, originators of joystick use in oz. I can remember you using one which appeared to be of your design and manufacture with great effect. in those days most guys rejected such ideas. now the worm has turned. several things I dislike about them are that to hold the sti...

Re: Mound Setup 101

I must confess to being a luddite in some ways, and do not use a joystick rest, preferring to be a bag squeezer.
many beginners do not want to spend big money on joystics for various reasons.
any advice from bag squeezers would be appreciated.

Re: Tuning Basics 101

looking for this velocity window is easy with a labradar. if you don't have one, a ladder test might be the quickest way. this has the bonus that every barrel has a slightly different velocity window. in some ways doing it without knowing velocity is a good thing, as preconceptions are out of the eq...

Re: Tuning Basics 101

assuming that your loading process is "tuned", it would seem that there are 2 main basic tuning tools to work with. they are bullet relationship to rifling, and powder charge. when both of these things come together in the best balance, the load is tuned to the rifle. most people seem to s...

Re: Tuning Basics 101

gyro, not only tuning a rifle becomes too hard for some, but the realization that wind reading takes a lifetime to learn part of finishes them off. they lack the character to face a challenge. even though many of them only own 1/4 moa rifles. much of this can be put down to the advertising machine s...
