Re: stevens build in 22PPC or 22BR F-class questions

Mysticplayer thanks for your reply and I have read your week 75 gun it's nice. Is F(tr) and F class 2 different competisions? I think your saying F(tr) is only open to 223 and 308 is that right?

How hard are the 22br and 6br to get to work in a stevens action and magazine?

By the way how hard does your 338 mystic kick when you shoot the 300smk? What action did you use for the 338m?

Thanks aggain, Gabe

Yes, these are two shooting divisions that shoot at the same match. F(TR) is 223/308 only. F(Open) is anything up to 8mm. Usually, no magnums are allowed due to noise/concussion to fellow shooters.

The short case can be made to work in a Stevens action but if this was a hunting rig, I would want a longer case just to be sure of no feeding issues.

I shoot my rifles single feed so case length doesn't matter. For F class, only single feed is allowed.

My 338 Mystic will kick as hard as any other case that can push a 300gr MK to 3000fps. NO fun in a light rifle. Mine weighs 35lbs and has a brake. Still pushes the rifle back a few inches when fired.

I have become a big recoil wuss so spend almost all my time with my 15lbs 223 and 21lbs 6.5.

Jerry
