QUESTION. Would airlines give you any grief if you carried a few unopened boxes of projectiles in your checked luggage :) ??

Re: 6.5 150g SMK

The other alternative would be 6.5x55 AI. Then you could wear out the barrel fireforming, but at least you start with good brass (lapua). I guess you need at least 2 barrels done at the same time or at least with the same reamer... I never want to get another 6.5x284, too much stress on that case he...

Re: 6.5 150g SMK

Re: New F Open Rifle

I am setting up a 300wsm for 230 berger OTMs as this is pretty much the energy limit in NSW F open. I expect to get around 2800 fps tops and i hope that will be enough.... Its a 9 twist bartlein HV barrel. ...yes i see what you mean about the prs, its based on the case on the left. My 300wsm230berg ...

Re: scope?

I found my scores jumped a few points when going from a NF BR 32* to the NF comp being able to resolve within the X ring made the difference. I know I could of been using a different technique (framing or setting up on on other parts of the target but to be able to see more clearly helped me. yes e...

Re: scope?

Agree totally sunnycoast. I have the Nightforce Comp 15-55 on my barnard and its perfect. Usually used at 40-55x. But I also have the Nightforce NXS 8-32 x 56 on my savage and I like that too. Its a better scope for some non-range shooting and still has adequate magnification for f class.

Re: scope?

I have not tried the golden eagle, but i like the nightforce more than the sightron. its a bit clearer and more solid (and more expensive) .. maybe on a range day get a look through a few...

Re: scope?

Well if your not walking around then anything between the NF NXS 5.5-22X56 MOAR-T and the NF NXS 8-32X56 MOAR-T would get the job done.... as i said personally i find scopes with less than 30x maximum a bit annoying for target but thats coming from an F open background. And it depends on the conditi...

Re: scope?

I think a 30x magnification is the minimum for f class to allow you to aim off around the x ring.... I have a NF 8-32x56 NXS with 1/8 clicks on my 308 (similar to yours) but i would not like to use it hunting.... I have QRW rings, quick release, and i would put a lower power smaller scope on it for ...

Re: Help... Hero to zero in one range

You know, the same pattern can be caused by different factors. The elevations in my 600m group could have been caused by velocity changes. I only know they were not because i have chronographed the rifle and there is hardly any spread at all. And I have seen the 5/6/700m groups on a good day...And I...
