Re: Cold Bore Challenge
Yeah... Thanks.... I kinda thought you'd say that... Back to the handloading room... <sigh> LOL
BTW... I'll have my own version of the cold bore challenge coming up soon... ;)
I'm headed for Virginia for my annual ground hog hunting trip in a few weeks. I will rarely get more than one shot per hour since there will be three of us and we take turns shooting and the groundhogs can get a bit spooky this time of year.
Elevations,wind, and distances vary greatly and we operate as a team with one man on the rifle, one on the spotting scope, and one on the ballistic calculator when a shootable groundhog is spotted.
I think I'll stick with the 55gr VMax's until after that trip because the bullets fragment very easily and it's cattle and farm country so once a bullet hits something you WANT it to come apart and the VMax's will do that more often than the SMK's.
I just ordered my first Nightforce scope from Bob Beck an it's gonna go on one of my SAUM's and I hope I have it ready in time for the trip. I'm pumped about maybe just using it for my Cold Bore Challenge rifle. I was going to send this rifle back to have it TriNyted but couldn't stand the thougt of it maybe not being back before hunting season. It shot lights out before and I'm having the action rebedded in a Mickey stock and it should shoot even better soon.
Still looking for a 308LTR and hoping my wife doesn't see my credit card bill before I get this Nightforce paid for... LOL
If it's long it can't be wrong... LDHunter (Long Distance Hunter) from the Piney Woods of NW Florida. I hunt clearcuts for scrawny whitetails... ;)
