You bet, 10:00 am to start. I will be there a bit earlier to set up.

And I need to check a few loads in my 338 Lapua . I plan to do some dialing in with the new Gen II Bergers. Would like to do a media test on a few at 1000 but don't know if I will have time to make a trap by then.


Glad to hear we have shooters coming. Looks like the weather will be good and in the mid 60's.

Re: 2011 Long Range Shoots, Townsend Montana

Well I had a hair brained idea and put an add in the club paper looking for old swingset frames. A guy called me and had two . Today I picked them up and went to work hanging my new AR500 targets on them. Then a random light coat of camo paint I had laying around. Here is the first one all ready for us to beat on at Saturdays shoot. This should get the targets from 800 t0 900 yds. up a little higher and easier to see. Target sizes are 8, 10, and 12 inch. Come on over and help us test it out!

I won't be making it this time unfortunately. Gas prices are killing me, my barrel is at Dave Youngs to go in for Nitriding anyway. I'm hoping by next month I can make it and with a tricked out barrel Like the gongs, a little closer together would help my wind calls look better

Going to miss ya BnG. and Anne too. Her new friend Michelle was hoping to see her there again.

I got to get up to Daves soon. I was talking to him about nitriding this week. Did you get some good velocity data before?? I hope so as I have been looking hard at this process.

Re: 2011 Long Range Shoots, Townsend Montana

I got some very good data before sending it in!! I have a real nice load that runs the 165 Matrix at 3053 with 10 fps ES. Also have a similar load for the 150 Ballistic tips, I also took both bullets up to the top to find the upper limit before sending it in so I should be able to get some very good feed back on what the Nitriding does for this barrel.
Anne's wanting to go shoot again, I don't think I could leave her behind, not that I would anyway.

BnG, please share what you see with me as soon as you get it tested. I would love to hear what really happens with this.

Tell Anne hi for us and if she still has Michelles number she should give her a call.
