Re: Getting started in F Class
Ill agree with overbore, id do a bit more load development, and se if you could shrink those groups a good bit. Going to a competition with a rifle that won't perform to the level nessicary for you to at least call your shots.... it won't even be fun. You will be very annoyed by the time the first relay is over. Look at the diameter of the xring on the target you will be shooting at. If the rifle won't do it under ideal conditions, you have ZERO chance of being competitive, and you probably won't enjoy it much at all. You won't learn how to shoot the wind, and you will essentially be wasteing ammo.
I did this once at a smallbore match in Raton. Day 2 was an anysight match, and I could place the dot in the leupold in the xring, extremly stable wind condition, watch the bullet drop throught the target a couple inches left, correct, repeat, low, repeat, left, repeat right AAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!
When you don't get the points you are holding for, you feel like instead of the wind being your enemy, its this freaking POS rifle youre trying to drive.
