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