For all the big cal long range shooters out there, just kind of interested in knowing what rifle and caliber you take out to practice with? Does anyone have any friendly competition they shoot with their buddies to recommend? We get to see pictures of the pride and joy in the gun safe, now lets see the pictures of those practice rigs.
Looks like you have some fun rigs there Willys. When you are shooting the howa, do you dial in wind and elevation, and if so how is that bsa treating you? What load are you using with that pss? I also load 175 grn for my buddies custom 308 remy, but we haven't shot out to 1000 yards yet, still working up a load for him.
Suprisingly the BSA has treated me pretty well. I only shoot it out to 300 yards so I am not cranking the thing two much, but it has tracked really well. The glass is not the best but I would buy another for a cheap practice gun.
The load for 175 smk.
Black Hills Brass
44.2 grains of Varget,
Seated 2.820 (mag lenght)
I was running them with 44 grains but was having the ocasional one drop into trasonic. the extra .2 seemed to help.
