Everyday...every way, both rifle and pistol.
Sounds right to me.
I wish I'd have put this thread in the appropriate section of the forum. Oh well...
So now that I know who is who, I have a question. Who is throwing charges and who is using a Chargemaster?
I shoot a 6ppc in short range benchrest. It has taught me that I need to practice over the flags in order to someday be competitive.
I throw my charges with a Chargemaster at the range. One reason for this is to eliminate the excuse to myself that I didn't throw my charges from a Harrel's very accurately.
That's all I've been doing as well.
So, so true . Thank god .
I’ve done both and mostly throw with an old Neil Jones type measure
Mostly shoot LT. I seem to be able to throw it a little more accurately
If the gun isnt in tune and it can’t swallow what I may be off throwing
I’m probably in trouble anyway
Thanks Tim. I'm about to pick up a used thrower from a member here. The Chargemaster is nice, but I'm trying to speed up my loading process. I was way too slow in between relays. It caused unneeded stress.
You should plan a trip to the shamrock next year
If you’ll do that I’ll plan a trip back up to the Hog roast.
Me and you’ll team up one em!
Watch out boys. You are all in trouble.
I’m all PPC . Can’t help it I like drilling holes.
I throw with a Neil Jones
I'm short range BR as well. Two 6ppc's and two 30 BR's.
Throwing - Harrell BR measure
I do own a chargenaster
I've joined the PPC USA throng. I've bought two Sakos in the past year. A 6ppc vixen hunter and a .22 PPC USA AI Bench Rest. I'm perched and ready to do some shooting/ coyote calling.
I shot a bunch of other cartridges before I bought a PPC. When I finally listened to some wiser gentlemen here, I bought a nice one. Borden action, Leonard stock, Leupold 45 scope. I’d have to search for the paperwork for all the particulars, but it’s not needed to make this point. I used the suggested load parameters from this forum for two different powders and Berger 68s. Below are the targets from that first day of testing. 100 yard 5 shot groups with the bullet touching the lands. It’s the first time I had a gun shoot that well . I put it away and haven’t shot it since. I’ll pull it out and shoot it when I decide I really know what I’m doing. I don’t want to waste the barrel on learning.
That is some mighty fine shootin', Josh.
Thanks Jim. It’s one of the most scary accurate guns I’ve ever shot. I found it hard to figure out which load shot best so I put it away for later.
I seldom shoot them now but I've got 2 PPC barrels for my Borden and another that was for my drop port viper, before I sold the gun. I've had several over the years. My first PPC was actually on a 98 Mauser...No kidding! My first sanctioned matches were IBS score. I got my feet wet with a very good 6BR but quickly jumped to 30BR, then 30 Major. I shoot mostly UBR now, which is caliber neutral but I've shot other calibers in it..30's, 220 beggs, 6BR, 6 Grendel. They've all been pretty good. They all seem to have little pro's and cons but I'm really liking the 12 twist 6 Grendel right now.
I don't know anything about what to look for with a PPC. Having said that on looking at the targets I'd be all over the H322 at 27 grns! They're all great though!
