Re: New Cooper 6br

On the beregers me and Bill Bailey have shoot several pdogs around 1100yds with his 6mm-250 with the beregers and I have noticed that the bullets almost act like a FMJ at that range. With the AMAX i have seen a least a little expansion around 1000yds.

Lerch,
Sweet rifle! The stock is very striking, if she shoots as well as she looks (and it should) you will have a valuable heirloom to pass on to future generations of Lerches.
Shoot straight & enjoy,
Dave

Nothing quite like a good lookin' stick of wood on a nicely done rifle !!! It's most refreshing to see somebody post a picture of their new toy with a wood stock !!!! A good Quartersawn stock will be very stable and shoot great besides looking like a million bucks !!!!!

I love the looks of your new stick !!! Good luck with the shooting.----7mmRHB

Re: New Cooper 6br

Well you got yourself a damn nice rig there Lerch, I hope it serves you as well as it looks.

I have always preferred a nice natural stock over the synthetics, however both have their places. I love the way the stock is bellied and ported, sure makes for a very functional product. I am sure you will take full advantage of it, or from what BJ says he will. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

Well take care of it, and try not to do it like I do a new truck, just head for the thickest brush you see and get it over with then you can enjoy it the way it was meant to be.

Daaaang Steve !!!

Well anyways I now now how the rich and famous ( or is that poor and infamous ) live . !

You have some good taste buds there my man, that is a piece to slobber over. And yes ! . by all means , use it and enjoy it and the minor dents and dings that come will serve notice to all that it IS ! a precision tool meant to be used and enjoyed .

One of the finest things that I have at my home ( I don't say own because it is older than me plus a couple of my children , so how could it be mine ? ) is a hand made singletree . Hand forged iron and hand carved /fitted oak. Well used and without a doubt served well . It is a thing of beauty .

Congratulations on a good investment for those that come after you !

And Yes !!, I am a sucker for a beautiful piece of wood too !

Richard Franklin of Richards custom guns has found a way to firm up that wood foundation. Using laminates of figured and exotic woods is a specialty of his . [image]Figured and fancy stock - Reference stock #111 SOLD[/image]

That is my stock so stay back !@! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
