That edge could do it. Have Tim pop it's cherry, and PLEASE video it!
i think me and leo are headed for deer lodge next week we will break it in.
Cody you'll have to do it, pretty sure Leo couldn't hit the ground with his hat.
We are talking 7/8ths of a mile of a mile to start...
That's already been done. They held them regularly in Ohio and some at Iowa. At Ohio it was a few yards shy of one mile. 5 shot groups for group and score. Matt
So I know we keep saying cold bore.... but has anyone ever thought of making something that "preheats"
the barrel? We used tire heaters in motorcycle and car racing, so I wonder if something similar would work for barrels and be allowed since you could easily heat a barrel before getting to the line.... crazy idea.
It wouldn't be impossible. We have chamber flags that cool the barrels. The question is how to evenly heat the entire barrel, with a device that stays inside the weight limit.
Simple solution--change the weight limit again.
it would be removeable, once the barrel Was heated it would retain enough heat til the first shot... shouldn’t affect weight
It's a myth.
I have no problems tracking cold bores. 95% of the time they go in the same spot as the rest following it.
That 5% of the time when they go elsewhere is when I just cleaned the barrel aggressively. Or haven't cleaned it in a long time, stored it for 6+ months and shot it that way.
Hey, rock shooting is not so bad. Junebug gorilla glued this back together for a souvenir.
Here in Aus , I helped a buddy win a National Queen’s Prize shoot using
heat packs to preheat the rifle . We had tuned it in 25 deg Celsius
conditions , but the day of the comp was 5 deg Celsius . Waited til the
very last moment to get the rifle out of the bag and set up . ‘ Warm bore’
shot was in the 10 ring : a lot of competitors were cleaning barrels and
wondering wtf , why is my rifle not shooting ....
Back on topic , congratulations to ELR Central for stepping up to lead the
way in this comp , and set some tough , no bullshit rules . Like many field
shooters , I’m tired of the spray and pray guys chucking lead all day and
getting one hit and claiming some record . These rules will most certainly
sort out who has their shit together , and those that do not ....
Lifted this from David Tubb's facebook,
Congratulations to my son-in-law, Nate; today He won the ELR Central World Record competition. This competition allows two separate attempts (spaced 4 hours apart) and consists of 3 (cold bore )shots each time. He took 3 shots and had 3 hits at 1768 yards in the morning and then beat his own record in the afternoon with 3 shots and 3 hits at 2011 yds after the wind had become trickier. Nate uses the new Tubb Adaptive Target Rifle (Tubb gun) with a Dynamic Targeting Reticle and Tubb T7T two stage trigger. He is shooting a .375 Cheytac with a 364gr Warner flatline bullet that has a patent pending Nose Ring modification in a Schneider 7 twist barrel.
More to follow.
I am pretty impressed that Nate hit 3 for 3 at 2k. Thats better than I though we would see in the first match. Well done! And he did it with a tube gun
Damn that’s an ugly scorecard ... Theres some serious talent in that list .
Anyone still complaining about the validity and difficulty of the rules now ?
Thanks for posting , Desert Fox .
Makes me want a 375 cheytac or varient even more.. Been kicking around the idea.. just cant come up with a feasible excuse for anything bigger than 338 lapua...
Sure is. It a start. ELR Central is still fine tuning the rules.
