Re: Sightron new scope purchase

I brought a new STAC 2.5-17-56 with ED glass and all last year and had it for 6mths. It was excellent, the whole package. I only had it briefly but it worked beautifully and would get another now for PSR. I only upgraded for an SIII 10-50-60 because it was better suited to F-class.

Re: Prize meetings

Re: New importer for Peterson Brass ?

I have used Peterson with my .260Rem and it’s been excellent. Extremely tough and can placed in the same category as Lapua. Definitely worth consideration and purchase.

Re: Just starting out

I fully Second what Barossa said. Start with .308 and learn with club gun for as long as you can or get a good tikka or a Howa And get it re-barreled. Shooting F-TR or standard will give you a good place competitively to learn and not get caught up with the arms race that F-open is and .308 is a goo...

Re: Nosler rdf

I have just loaded up 130gn RDFs for 260Rem. 42.5gn 2209, 26” 1:8 with Fed Match Gold LR primers. The case necks were prett trigger though, hoping that doesn’t impact too dramatically. I’ll report results from 300M after this Saturday.

Graham

I am about to jump in the .280AI journey and finding your thread/blog has been tremendously valueable and heartening to see it come together for you with solid results.
Thanks for taking the time to put all of this down for our reference and enjoyment!
