    Had my dads old 1950's 22lr he gave me years ago still in the closet, along with a 410 from Mossberg that hadn't been touched since we got them years ago. Was going through the closet re-oiling things to be sure rust was not starting to take over...

    Az and a full week of shooting! Yes! However, March is spring break time and family is first. I just arrived home from a day of skiing with my son. I am happy for all the years I spent shooting winters in AZ. I need to take a few years break. I...

    I have a few black metal ones that came with the older model. ...the kind of cap that fit around the top and outside. I made Walnut caps and don't need them. PM me and I will gift you one if you want it.

    Yes, you are right about the ML, no coaching there. Which is a bit of irony in that shooting in an ML match the rifleman has to stand back up, then looking away from the changing conditions to load for a few minutes and then getting back down into...

    Yes, if you want to win, we instinctively know it is only to our advantage to find the very best partner we can find to shoot with. Great riflemen find great riflemen to work with. As we know,:smile: that is why working alone is such a big...

    I would point out a few of my observations. You write:Although it might make the sport harder to get into for someone not experienced with wind reading. I agree, which is why I would suggest only making Expert and Master class in BPTR a NO...

    The fact that NRA Creedmoor is a team event is why I have taken a break from mid and LR events the last few years. Odd that most all other target rifle sports to include youth 22rf, the competitor relies on themselves only, and to be coached would...

    Never hit a hammer with another hammer or some hardened metal. They can shatter! I carry a piece of an easyout in my arm. Was tapping the easy out in a drilled broken off bolt in an engine block when the hammer head broke into pieces.

    I hate to sound like a know it all but I doubt if more than a very few shooters can tell what twist they are using (likely none) and fewer among the top ten longrange BPCR riflemen in the country would place any differently using an 18T, 17T or 16T...

    For fun I tried the third one offered. I used a 45 cal BPCR bullet I had made up about 2004 and entered the data as close as the fields would allow. I think I did it right. http://www.geoffrey-kolbe.com/images/151038.png I don't think the graph...

    Never had mold handles split. I've had them fall off while casting (a pain in the other end). When I'm done casting I glue them back on with Red RTV.

    Actually all Springfield 45-70's were 1 in 22 inch twist and even the long 535 gr Postell hits head on at 1000 yards in good to moderate conditions.

    I have never shot any of the heavy weight 22rf's. My rifles are all 16 twist. I often thought it would be interesting to have faster twist rifles like 12 twist and 50 grain match bullets/ammo. At may be that it is too great a nitch market for ammo...

    Hey Greg, Right off the bat, when you stepped up to shoot the mid-range 3-position match last October, I knew you were a good man! I have had good luck with the case of Aguila 22-Match I got a few years ago during the 22 shortage. One of the...

    I think this about sums it up as to the current state of Handloader. However, I feel the loss of the 1970's 1980's era when Handloader was not written for entry level nor did product sales drive the content. Precision Shooting and the old Rifle...

    Throwing rocks with a 16 twist. How about a 9 twist? Any experience? I have not done it so I am not poo-pooing it until I have some real experience.

    I think you need to go back and re-read the size of the barrel. And yes - they will go 200yds. Accuracy in a 9 T barrel is the question here. Have you tried it? Or just guessing?
