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.
Nate Statler 2000 yards record which he shot in the afternoon and broke his 1 mile record in the morning was even impressive, considering that the wind was brutal in the afternoon. I was shooting the 300 grain Berger OTM with my 338 Lapua Ackley and only managed to hit 1 out of 3 at 2011 yards target.
Id still drink a beer to that... I got berger 300 vlds Ive been developing a load for. But I have some OTMs and Elite hunters too I think... I wouldnt think a load would be much different for them... still not sure what shoots best. 98.5gr re33 in a 30 inch barrel.
I used nothing but 300 SMK since I started shooting the 338 nine years ago. I only switched to Berger OTM after deciding to shoot the ELR World Record Event. I found out that the OTM is shooting a bit flatter than the SMK. I used 95 grain of Retumbo for both bullet and getting 2870 fps velocity from a 30" barrel. I only had two weekend to prepare for this shoot. I wish I had more time to practice.
I recorded this video with my Go-Pro showing impact from a 300 grain Berger OTM Hybrid at 2000 yards during one of my shooting practice.
I enjoy the innovation competition like ELR bring to the market. I see this becoming a who has the most money along with the talent like so many other sports if it hasn't headed that way already. I recently stumbled onto a article about the 14.9 SOP made from the 20mm Vulcan case. Even though they said the gun was a 100 plus pounds and wouldn't qualify for this competition its a great example of engineering and what can be achieved today. This kind of competition should bring out some great guns.
What do you think has the accuracy edge between those two bullets? How far have you shot them for groups? Thanks
Both are equally accurate on my rifle. However as I alluded on my previous post, I've had a lot of experienced shooting the SMK on our local 1000 yards shoot here in Southern Cal. Below are some of my score from these shoots. These are not true F-Class target by the way. The X are 10" in diameter.
What match are you shooting in? Is there pits? Are they marking the targets or are you shooting blind? What targets are you shooting on? Sorry for all the questions but I am helping start up a 2k shoot.
