    Be careful thinking a br guy can’t run his app and make cold bore hits at distance once in a while, just saying;)

    Read my previous post. They were hunters before they started BR. It was just a way to compare guns and have some fun competing. Matt

    No way to prevent a team member who is also shooting to gather that data though. Yes the conditions do change (to a known value believe it or not, or the same pattern every year) but as long as team members can spot for each other, preventing shooters from having some data is impossible.

    I think Rimfire is going to make ELR popular. Anyone can compete, and at a much lower cost.

    Here is picture of our 416HSM cases with screw in shellholders,

    for Ammomaster, etc, and slip in shellholders for regular presses

    Also have some for big LEE Classic and Smart Reloader presses..

    A 378 WEA MAG in picture for comparison...


    Second is stacks of 416 HSM, about a third fireformed

    and the rest to be fireformed... So far total about 1700, Ed

    They could indeed run more than one target at once. Also, they could pair fire. This event may become like BSN in F-Class, where the match turns away ready competitors who have the skill along with investment in specialized gear, but few large scale events to go to.

    As an aside, - absolutely agree that weight limits, especially evolving ones, are onerous.

    Can someone explain the logic of why a typical FCSA match shot at 1,000 yards permits a 50 pound 50 cal, but when the distance to be shot is tripled, that same 50 cal from 1,000 yard match now needs to be less substantial?

    No one is requiring shooters to select smaller calibers that don’t need to weigh 50 pounds. I would contend that the desirable 2-1/2 inch action for 50’s and .416’s with appropriate scaled barrels and stocks push 50 fitted out. So is the move to suppress custom builds of the big head cases, because only factory builds easily meet weight.

    For the guys loyal to .338, this is essentially putting a 17 pound weight limit on your guns and saying it’s common knowledge that a 700 action can work for an LM. But in all likelihood you don’t want the smallest action that works.

    The weight reductions squeeze the BMG case guns unfairly and the only question is why that is going on.
