Re: How are you new members finding us?

Just managed to have a quick look around the forum, already know ill be back often.
Came over from www.snipershide.com
Im by no means new to long range shooting. But long to me means 5-600meters
Im just in the process of building a heavy .308 to do some more shooting, only mistake I have made on this project so far was to order a 1:12 barrel.

Not sure why a 1/12” barrel is a mistake on a 308 (I assume Win)? It would seem like the perfect twist. I should stabilise a bullet up to 190gn, and if you want a heavier bullet than that, you probably want a bigger case.

Re: How are you new members finding us?

I guess that's trye, I don't plan on shooting anything heavier then a 175
So It should work fine.
Is it worth while to keep it 27.5" long, or should I cut it down to 24"?

I plan on keeping it as long as possible!

I was invited via e-mail by one of your "regulars" after being under attack in another forum concerning my bullet choices.

Welcome to LRH.

You'll find that the use of Sierra Matchkings on game is more widely accepted here. I think you'll like it round here.

By the way, nice web site.
