Re: Tight necks worth it?
<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">quote:</font><HR>why would br shooters all do it?
I follow br and use what I can, wherever I can. But, you have to guard to being a slave to other disciplines.
Hunting is a different game.
I have one genuine tight neck rifle that I use for moderately long range hunting. <shrug> Then there was the neck turning and various bushings, yada yada, yada.
I tend to think a good barrel, on a sound action, assembled and bedded by a competent gunsmith, is all I need.
In other words, not exactly overrated, but not the ultimate solution, either. Of course, I'm surely no expert on the subject. Just my opinion. Basically, I'm responding to the rationale that tight necks are preferable because benchresters prefer them.
Good hunting. LB
