Re: Rules For The ELR sub-forum

When we move a thread we usually leave a notice or link at the original location, for a week or so.

If that is gone now, do a search on posts by yourself and you should find it.

Re: Rules For The ELR sub-forum

I didnt realize how CROWDED the other subforums had become. Last time I hung out here was years ago and it was definitely a different crowd back then. Hopefully this will stay a place where people who have a clue can converse without the wal mart crowd giving advice. Thanks

Re: Rules For The ELR sub-forum

So guys this is my first post and I would like say how much I love this place. But I'm with the rest of you guys on all the folks that say they know what there doing but have no clue how many rounds down range it takes to get to this level of accuracy. On that note I have been working on a 308 I built working at a mile. The reason I say this is cause every one thinks you need a big mag rifle to get waaaay out there, but with a lot of knowledge you can make wonderful things happen with a lot less powder these days. We all know how tough it is to get components for loading these days. Although my 6.5-284 doesn't use to much more powder.

Re: Rules For The ELR sub-forum

My 1,000 yard shooting program has reached 980 yards so far because that is the max range of the club where i compete in PRS shoots (Desert Sportsman's Gun Club) with my 6.5 Creedmoor Ruger Precision Rifle. It has a 3.5 - 21 x 50 Bushnell ERS scope with a H59 "Christmas tree" reticle. My RPR competition rifle has a nice Atlas Bipod and CTK monopod but those are not something you can find on hunting rifles.

Soon... I also have a 6.5 CM Ruger Amer. Predator (not the Model 77 style Ruger Predator) with a 5 - 15 x 44 SWFA scope for hunting.
I have begun moving toward my own club's 960 yard steel silhouette (sp?) range with the RAP rifle, at first from a bench rest. It's more difficult due to the rifle's much lighter weight, plain mil hash mark reticle and heavier 3.5 lb. trigger compared to my RPR competition rifle. But I AM making progress in ringing the steel more often at 700+ yards

At that 960 max steel range at my club (Boulder Rifle and Pistol Club) I have been competing in a local "laid back" match designed to improve hunting skills at long range. Time constraints are 4 times longer than the fast PRS match evolutions. We even have time for a a few sighters at each distance. (I told you it was laid back.)

But the catch with that "laid back" match is that we are not allowed to shoot at the larger silhouette targets but must shoot at little "MOA-size" steel squares. i.e 5" square at 500 yards. Damn hard to hit all the time - even 50% of the time on some windy days!
DISCLAIMER: I have only competed in the "laid back" matches with my competition rifle from a bench. Next I'll use my RAP hunting rifle and stay with it.

By next March I may try 1,000 yard NRA F class competition at my club. Hey, I've quickly learned that ANY long range competition will improve your shooting in the field. So why not try as many as I can as often as I can?

So that's my odddesy of learning long range shooting. Soon I'll begin practicing with both rifles from my shooting mat and the portable bencherest wood seats. I'm also learning position shooting with a sling with each rifle and it is DIFFICULT, even with the RPR competition rifle and its TAB Gear competition sling with its adjustable bicep slot. If you want to know what your pulse looks like thru a scope then try shooting with a sling.

BTW, both Ruger 6.5 CM rifles shoot 1/2" MOA. The RPR competition rifle with Hornady 140 gr. ELD-M (Match) ammo and the RAP with Hornady 143 gr. ELD-X Precision Hunter ammo. If only I could shoot as well as my rifles. And yes, Hornady's hunting ammo does shoot as well as its match ammo, just as they advertise.
