Too bad they don't make polished stainless scopes

+1 with Roy, except the shot glass is really nice too, looks like a bullseye in the bottom of it.

Re: Finally Completed Long Range Pistol

Very nice pistol! The paint job is sweet... as is the polishing. Have you taken her out to shoot yet?

Nice to see a new member from right around the corner! I live in McLean, VA but also have a farm (with a 500, soon to be 600, yard range) less than 15mins from the Gainsville Five guys... (the burger place, normal lunch stop every saturday after shooting). Shoot out there with some good friends and members of this site there almost every weekend, let me know if you'd like to stretch the legs on that 22 BR a bit!

I have 3 stocks ready to go now. 1 for a striker w/mag well and 2 for target actions with the single port, they are set up for factory nutted barrels.

Re: Finally Completed Long Range Pistol

Thanks everyone for the nice comments regarding my rig. Been out two weekends in a row working up loads and finally have a load that is working for me. Best powder, bullet and seating length is as follows.

Brass Prep
Brass = Lapua 6mm BR Norma, trimmed to 1.557"
Forming Die = Redding Custom made from chamber reamer
Bushing Dies = Redding Competition
Mandrel = K&M .224
Neck Turner = K&M

I ran the brass first through Forming Die, then through FL Sizer to set back the shoulder. After that I ran it through a K&M .224 Mandrel Die to shape the neck and turned them very little, just enough to take the high spots off. Next I ran the brass into my Redding Competition Neck Sizing die using a .246 bushing. Loaded round measures .248 and chamber is .250". Next I sorted all my brass to .010 of a grain and boxed them up

Handload Recipe
Brass = Lapua
Bullett = Sierra MatchKing 52 gr BTHP
Powder = H322
Charge wgt = 30.6 gr
Primer = CCI BR4
Length = .002 off the lands

Best group was .193" (3-shot Group @ 100 yards)

Re: Finally Completed Long Range Pistol

Oliveralan,

Thanks for the invite, I sure will take you up on that as currently I am driving all the way to Warrenton (Clark Bros) to shoot, which is okay, but too many distractions and I am limited to only 100 yards.

I'll send you a PM with my contact info. Thanks again.
