I will start by saying this cartridge has surpassed my expectations.
The make up of the rifle:
Broughton 5C 1 in 7, 31" finish
chambered in .243 WSSM Rouge 262 neck
This chambering is designed for the 115 D-TAC and I'm anxious to try Richard's 120's when he gets a chance to get some to me.
I have only put together 1 load but there is really no need to look any further.
Winchester WSSM brass (sorted by weight)neck turned to 260
flash hole and primer pocket reamed
reloader 22 45grs.
D-TAC 115 into lands
FGM 210 primers
M.V 3120 fps.
The 31" barrel was meant to go in a barrel block but I really wanted to do some testing so I put it on my .260 AI and it shoots so good I almost don't want to take it off. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img]
I like pictures so here are some pictures of some shooting I did tonight.
The group on the steel target is a 3-shot group at 600 yds.off the bi-pod.
A month ago I did shoot this rifle in an "F" class match and came in 3rd. but I was happy with that as I was shooting match style with a sling. It is awesome when you can call every shot to your score keeper. This was my first time shooting with the sling and I think I'm going to invest in some iron sights so I can shoot with the match rifle guys instead of the "F" class.
Congrats to our very own "300win" who won the match. He only lost 3 points out of 45 rounds!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]
followed by Richard schatz and myself ( I seem to be a little slow on picking up on the wind.)
Well, enjoy the pics
P.S how do you like the shooting mat???
It was custom built for me by my wife, who spoils me rotten [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] it folds into a rifle case. it has a hidden pocket for a 1911 and bolt flag and has a flip down padded flap that has 30 case holders. The entire inside of the mat is neoprene lined and has extra padding for the elbows and leather on top of that.There is a couple clips for the sling when it is folded for ease of carying.My wife hasn't been shooting with me this summer because she is in the process of growing a new long range shooter, only 3 months to go [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
