Welcome to F Open, Josh \:D/
Extreme accuracy and precision shooting at long range can be a very addictive pastime.

Bahahaha. It's awesome to have you come over to Open Josh. Absolutely love the rifle, the stock and the arctic camo. Can't wait to see it in action.

I hadn't seen his website before . Thanks Denis.
Yes, It certainly looks like Josh's new baby has made the front page. I think all the rest are Kelvins :D :mrgreen: :D

Thanks tony, Steve, Dennis and cam, I picked it up at 9am yesterday and was running it in by 11am. However I'm flying out today to snowboard Japan for a week. Perfect terrain but no I cant take it with me!
That's the one on his site! I would think its the only rifle he has built in that confirmation and colour!
Cam, it would be very hard to part with the Python however I really like the f class stock, may have to sell the Python to get another. Plus it sounds like your wouldn't have the room in your safe!
Oh and Dennis, Brent has got his shehane up and running so add another to the f open field!

Love his website Tony, it's a great tool for his business. Since I found it, I cant stop "rifling" through all the photos. Beautiful looking rifles.

I actually have an attic camo onesie from a fancy dress party, might whip it out at the last range of the Nationals this year!

Hey Josh

How's the new addition to the family going? Looked really nice at the C v C match.

Any further with the load development yet?

Cheers

Andrew

Hey andy,
Still have a few kinks but it's coming along well. Seems like it has a half grain window around 56.0gr of 2209 producing 2920fps. This was shot on a hot day so I don't think I'm flirting with the limit. I'm finding it is sticky in the bags possibly due to it being 2kg heavier and an increase in surface area compared to the mbr. I think I'll try some Teflon tape to decrease the friction. Hoping to be ready for Warwick in a few weeks!

Hi Josh

Sounds like it's coming along well. My little flirtation with the 7's is coming along well too. Very early yet but eh trued Savage is shooting well. No load development yet as still running in. Shot a few .2 groups at 100 with it and 121 the other day with a load I picked as a starter.

You coming up to Bundy this year? I was planning on going to FNQ but looks like a trip west to Longreach might be happening instead. Shame but probably a better option given how busy everything is around at the moment. You should bring this one up to Bundy if you're coming?? Happy to have you in Open.....makes my two days much easier!

Cheers Andrew
