Re: 6.5 Mystic Rifle for 1000mBR/ F class Competitions

alg, again, not available readily or reliably. About the only powders I have access to are from Hodgdon/IMR. I can get reloader from time to time.

Unfortunately, due to these component restrictions, I have to limit my projects.

would love to do a fast twist 6mm but without 115gr bullets, what's the point?

After spending several days last fall arguing with GG and I about( Efficient )case designs and how there was no free lunch just more powder and pressure by a bunch of Wildcaters that were going to hurt themselves, I'm suprised to see you even mention the word Efficient in one of your posts!!!

Thought you guys might like the group I just shot this morning at 345yds.



Swabbed the barrel as groups were starting to grow after 70rds of shooting. Just ran a dry patch down the pipe a few times. No chemicals. Took the fouling shot then hunkered down and hammered this 4rds.

And if you are wondering why I didn't shoot the 6th shot to make a 5rds group? Yes, I chickened out.

Is this typical? I wish. Nope more like 1/2" to 1" for 5 rds under most normal conditions of wind and mirage. I always seem to pull a shot. Oh well, good enough for possibles in F class.

A few more days to practise and then it is off to Kamloops. Apparently, the shoot is full so we will be shooting 5X15 rds instead of the 5X20. I am glad that we have to shoot a shorter course first time out. Very tiring to keep concentrating and form for 20rds.

Already shot 500rds and cleaned the barrel maybe 4 times. I am liking the stability and consistency the Gaillard is showing dispite being really fouled. Will come in handy for those long F class days.
