Re: long rang hand cannon

JB,

That's exactly what I was thinking too, but was told the restriction is as was stated for pistols. I'd guess someone don't want people to have rifle accuracy at LR in a pistol that could be concealed under a trench coat or something to that effect.

Coyoter,
I think a milk jug at 1000 yards with a rifle is not much of a problem, nor would it be with a long, heavy match barreled pistol either.

Consistantly means many different things to many people. For me, consistantly means my rifle NEVER shoots any larger groups than "X" number of moa.

Would I be able to do it consistantly as per my definition, probably not likely. 12-14" groups, maybe better, in perfect condidtions might be doable tho. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I want one to fit in my tuff box on my 6-wheeler. I'd use it for Moose out to however far it could group small enough to work 100% of the time.

99.95% of shooters don't even understand how to hit a milk jug at even 500 yards... even if they had a vice. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    I have not shot past 720 yards with a pistol but at 720 we were hitting a 6x8 inch steel plate with no problem with a 22 BR. I know that the contender you can put a 16 1/2 inch barrel with no problem.

    Well heres the deal.

    Barrel 16" on the nose you can have a pistol style hand grip or a full length buttstock.

    Barrel less than 16 can only have a handgrip no butstock allowed.
    Barrel longer than 16" has to have a buttstock.
    And shotguns must have a barrel length of 18" or longer. These are legal definitions as described to me by an officer in Minnesota.

    As far as the calibers listed, I have personally shot an Encore with a 14" compensated barrel in the 30-06 round, And I will not shoot that again, even with the muzzle break the recoil was too much.

    Good luck

    Very interesting. So you can't use the stocks on the contenders with the 14" bbls? I had also thought if it was manufactured as a pistol action, shorter barrels and a buttstock was no problem. Hmmmmm, I'll have to do more checking on this.

    There's also a minimum rifle OAL too, can't remember what length it is though. I wonder if their's one for pistols too?

    Thanks guys.

    the action is manufactured neither as a pistol nor rifle. I went around and round with a police officer about this once.

    It may be different in your state but in MN thats the way it is.
