Re: 2011 Long Range Shoots, Townsend Montana

Any of you locals going to the Potomac shoot this Sat? It looks like I will have room for one in my daughters' car for the trip . I would rather take my pickup, but with diesel at 4.15, it would be a $50 bill to make the trip :( The Honda wil do it for half that, but I can only ride two. Let me know if you are interested.

Re: 2011 Long Range Shoots, Townsend Montana

The June shoot is this coming Saturday ( 11 th ) starting at 10:00 am. Weather looks great so far! Hope all that have been coming can make it and some new shooters too.

I plan to keep working with my .338 LM and the Gen 2 Bergers. Anyone coming that could bring a good reliable chronograph? I would like to get some solid velocities on the loads and don't trust what I have.

Also if you have any new ideas for some different targets let me know and I will see what I can do.

BnG, ya comin? When we doin the deer shoot?

Thanks all!

Jeff

I'm planning on coming. Won't have a ton of rounds to shoot (20 or so.....not sure how many rounds you guys typically shoot at these gatherings), but I want to just come meet some of you all too. So, I'll get a little bit of shooting done....hopefully enough to get data to send in to Huskemaw.....and put some faces to names.

Jeff, I can bring my Shooting Chrony F-1. It's nothing fancy, but it gets the job done and it'll be another option for you if nobody else brings a chrono.

Thanks, looking forward to it!

Hi Ben, Glad you are coming! Just take I 90 west to the 3 forks exit and up hwy #287 to Townsend. Go right through town till you cross the river and then take the next left (Indian Creek) Come on up Indian Creek about ( and this is a guess) 3 miles and look for a quansit hut up on the hill to your right. There will be a red flag flying at the gate by the road to and signs for the range.

See ya Sat.

WOW, it's been a month all ready it's been a fast one here with deaths and marriages!
I'm thinking I'll try and make it this time, I have a coyote made up and can get an antelope made, I'll check back in when I get things nailed down a little more. Got some interesting rifle options that I was thinking about

Re: 2011 Long Range Shoots, Townsend Montana

Hey Ben, Thanks for the Chrony offer, but I have two of them I place in line together. I feel mine run from 20 to 30 fps on the fast side so I wanted to compare data with a different brand chronograph. But I appreciate you offering. Thanks!

BnG, glad you are trying to make it. Bring up your new projects , I would like to see them.

We have decided to have a little free lunch for this shoot. My wife says we have plenty of Elk in the freezer so we will bring a grill and burgers. Bring along a chair, and your beverage of choice (no acohol please) and we will supply the 803 yard Burgers and chips. Everyone is welcome to come.


Jeff
