I definitely want to try this out but I'll be shooting a 6.5 Grendel with a 20 power Leupold and hornady factory ammo. Well I gotta take the training wheels off sometime. 600 ended up being easier than I thought and of course the crowd was pretty cool. Wait you didn't say anything about newbs bringing donuts.

You will be fine at 1000, I have shot several times with a x22 or x26 and had no problem. No donuts at this one, only high power matches.

I cant believe a post from mattt even got a response!

What are the odds this should be my first long range match.....my .308 AR has handloads that are sighted in at a 100, but ive never shot past 300 :(

Would really like to see the resident Zeiss fanboy shoot the match so he can show us all how superior European glass is.

All Palma team hopefuls must go through initiation, in this case mattt must do Ahhnother8's bidding while he's in Australia.

It was more sympathy than anything...

Bring out your zombie hunting setup.

There was a younger couple there last weekend, the chick was wearing a SF State sweat shirt...they were just hanging out. Don't know if the guy was a shooter or what. Was going to ask why he didn't shoot but was busy working the pits.

Jim warned me about drinking the kerosene/diesel fuel/whatever is in those squirt bottles...:D

Those karosene bottles are good for getting rid of the coffee jiters .I didnt know they were not for sipping when you are in the pits.

Kerosene! I thought it was kool aid, no wonder my scores are low.

I figured out it wasn't Kool-Aid when I lit up a smoke after my turn in the pits :41:

So, this is with optics, not iron sights?

I've got a new .308 AR I haven't even shot yet. Can anyone recommend a relatively inexpensive scope to get me in on this?

Oh wait.. 22nd? I'm booked. Let me see if I can reschedule some things...

Bags? Benchrests? What's allowed? Do I have to wear one of those funny coats?

wooger
10-14-2011, 6:44 PM
This is benchrest or F class, no coats needed. I can bring an extra scope if needed.

Thanks for the very generous offer, but I wouldn't be comfortable borrowing something like that, plus I wouldn't have any time to sight it in and get accustomed to it. I'll reprioritize things so I'm ready for the next one.

Unlimited sighters, shooting off concrete benches under the shade of the roof?

Shooting at a 10" Ten-ring from over half a mile?

Oh, yeah........I'm in!

I will finally try f/open killshot but with my 300 wm with 220 smk. I hope I dont melt the barrel or blow out my shoulder.:eek:

How well can he pull targets? I might be interested.

Phish Get one of those camo baby backpacks camo him up install hearing and eye protection on him and he could even spot for you if you give him a little spotting scope.

What's the FPS on your Winmag and I'll compare....

The wind makes it fun. It's just when it blows eight different speeds over the 20mins that's the problem!

Shooters friend recoil pads are manpons . I did get a headache after 20+ rounds of the 300 wm followed bye 40 rounds 30.06 from my steel buttplate rem model 720.Followed bye 20 rounds of 35 rem out of my steel buttplate rem game master. :confused: Maybe I need to look at a recoil pad

Killshot, you sure you want to shoot 1K. I mean, you didn't do so well at 600 last weekend and there was no wind :)

Last weekend was our only scheduled weekend at Sac Valley for no wind this year, LOL

Now wait just a minute, I'm sure there was 1 1/2 to 2 mph "gusts" last weekend!

I had a whopping half minute dialed into my scope. :D Could have been my crooked shooting just as much as the wind though.

10-16-2011, 5:59 PM
Heck, my scope isn't even zeroed and I was 1/2 minute.. + or - 1/2 minute.
