Re: One mile + rifle

Hi Bruce If you're looking at getting into it then go on YouTube and check out "Mark and Sam after work". They're over here in WA and are shooting various cartridges out to beyond 4000m! It could give you a good idea of what to use. They've got heaps of videos about rifle setup as well. Ce...

Re: used stocks

Cheers for the replies guys! John, thanks for the links, I'll keep checking their site. Most of those were for a short action of which there are heaps around. If i could use my original sporter weight synthetic stock i would but the barrel channel is way too small. BAT, unfortunately I don't know an...

used stocks

G'day all! I posted an ad in the "for sale, wanted" section without much luck (which i was partially expecting due to it being unusual). But that's ok. So i thought I'd ask here if anyone knows of any dealers/shops etc here in aus that have used stocks available. I'm looking for one to sui...

oh, and getting back to the original thread, while i am biased, i think the 300rum has alot of potential as a very accurate cartridge, especially at the longer ranges. if your looking for flat shooting and wind bucking ability, then its up there with the best. imho.

happy shooting

while i dont want to start an argument, or go too much off the original thread, wouldnt it be in the sports best interest if we all became a little more accommodating towards new shooters. i cant speak for the other states, or other regions here in the west, but in the wheatbelt area, the sport appe...

hey i totally agree, after seeing the amount of dirt that gets "displaced" after firing two ranges i can see how it may be annoying. on the other hand, i always shoot on the other end of the mound to anyone else, and everyone always wears hearing protection (like they should be). it has been comment...

guess i will have to see as theyve been ordered. 168's for me would be way too light, mv would be somewhere near 3500 im guessing.
i was going to run the 200gn sierras but the heavier the better for my cartridge.
