" FUN STUFF" I recently had a .22 Dasher built with a no turn neck and throated for 80 grain bullets. The rifle was built on a old Wichita action with a 31" Broughton 5c barrel that has an oversized Harrel's brake on it. It is loaded to 3330 fps. with a 80 grain A-MAX. Because I had a large stock of Norma 6Br. brass that has been what I have been shooting with. Although I did form some up with Lapua and Remington brass. It is interesting to note the two best low 2's that I have shot was with the Remington 6 Br. brass. ??? I built it to be used for metallic varmint shooting out thru 500 yards. a couple of weeks ago the gunsmith/benchrest shooter that built it was shooting it at a 12" swinger 885 yards with a slight 6 to maybe 10 mph west to east crosswind. It took him 3 shots to get on target and then he tagged it 17 times in a row. When we were done shooting we drove out to the plate and he was able to cover the 17 shots with the palm of his hand. Yesterday at the San Gabrial club benchrest match he shot it again,minus muzzle break). I have not seen the final results yet,but he was in the middle of the pack with about a .330 agg. I certainly know that's not a winning score, but for it's first and only time at a benchrest match we thought id did good! It is a joy to shoot and makes you feel like you can reach out and touch on the range. I have not enjoyed shooting this much for years! From Dave Kiff, My new .22,6.5) x 47 Lapua reamer arrived today, When the 7 twist barrel gets here we'll have more fun. now I need 90 grain bullets. I"m fat & happy ! John P.S. Your host was watching us shoot yesterday. He really enjoyed himself at the benchrest match, I'm sure he will be giving you a report Re: benchrest shooting.
