too expensive. you have to buy 1k at a time to get a descent deal. prices went up 20% on these suckers within the last week.

Midway's prices on the 155 Scenar have always sucked. Grafs or powder valley are much better.

Let me know if either of you C&R holders are going to order from Midway or Grafs anytime soon.. I need some bullets, brass, and a few items from Midway. No rush.. just collecting components for my .338 and sustaining my .308 :)

Cool. Thanks. I'll do some price shopping and let you know.

Anyone doing any shooting this coming weekend? 1000 yard bowling pins perhaps? :) First person to hit it chooses the post-shoot beer.. last person buys it!

$123 for 168 500 round pack threw Grafs. Out of stock at the moment. Nosler custom comp is $47.79 for 250.

So you're able to get discounted prices even on some bullets and brass? Sweet.. I was under the impression there wasn't any discount on those items..

midway doesn't really hook you up on bullets and brass. only a few bucks. no biggie.

nosler 168s 1k count at midway is around $175. i know you prefer smks, but i swear these perform the same.

As Pete said Midway doesn't break you off as much as Grafs does on reloading.

only on the nolsers. i think they bought out all the nosler 168s a few months ago when nosler had the big sale. i bet midway hoarded it all.

They grouped really tight for me and certainly perform well.. but there were slight differences in terms of POI.. maybe I'll experiment with it just one more time.. I think I still have like ~200 sitting around.

i'll give you the 250pack back if you want. i don't mind. they are good bullets.

Na.. the 200 I have laying around is more than enough. No intention of ever really using them.. just going to test what I have left for the sake of measuring the differences compared to SMK.

I think I may have a pack I can donate, if not I'll toss ya a few 168 SMKs I have left. Probably around 80 or so.

Going completely off topic for a second.. shooting in the rain had absolutely no effect on my POI at 100 yards. Now I wish i tried shooting at longer ranges that day..

i also suggest you guys start shooting without rear bags. i hear the scprc match does not allow them.

There's ways to get around that depending on what exactly they prohibit. Start practicing shooting with a towel/ shirt wrapped around your hand or something :)

good idea. someone should make a special glove that acts like a rear bag.

Mark does not allow rear bags of any type - including rolled up towels. That said a few shooters use a shooting mit on the weak hand - I've tried it and preffer useing just my hand for better control.

How about wearing a winter glove full of poly beads? :)

Though seriously.. I would just keep it simple and shoot with my regular gloves. Not TOO much difference depending on the size of the target. It is a bit shakier on the cement though..

Why? For realism? Like using a dedicated shooting mit is any less realistic than a rear bag. Its arbitrary rules like that that don't sit well with me.

Can't answer that but I'd estimate no - he approves of and recommends a shooting mit if we want padding. I wear gloves when I shoot anyway and just use my gloved hand. Once you get use to it you'll find that for anything but BR using your weak hand under the rifle butt gives you a very solid platform as well a very controlable platform.

Can't answer that, we don't know why he went that way, it started a couple of years ago. But those are his rules, his match.

Yeah.. I do it every now and then. Only time where it's a significant hindrance is when I'm on the cement. Then again, it might be due to more than just my hand/ wrist touching the ground.. I just don't have enough cushion between my ribs/ bones and the ground to absorb the pulse of my heartbeat. I need to start on a high calorie and high fat diet!

No biggie when in the dirt though..
