How many rounds for a 1000 yd BR match?

Lerch and I are headed to MO for their first 1000 yd BR match Sat. There are 2 matches in both the light and heavy gun for a total of 4 matches. We are going to shoot the same rifles in all matches. How many rounds do we need to take???

    Depending on if they shoot 10 shots with HV or just 5, and how windy it is for sighters, about 100-125 rounds should work. What guns you taking?

    Good luck.

    That seems to be the consensus; 100-125 rounds.

    I am taking my 6-250 that Kirby built and Steve is taking his Cooper 6BR.

    We've been out and shot a couple of times over the past week. Steve just got his Cooper going good and settled on load that printed a 1" group @ 400 yds. My little 6-250 has printed 3, 5 shot 1000 yd groups right @ to just under 7" and one that was about 12". I was pretty happy considering the stinkin' wind was blowing 10-15 MPH everytime we've been out.

    Wow, thats small groups. Specially with those light bullets, I think.
    I have seen those light 6mm's been taken badly by the wind sometimes.
    I had a try on 1200m, with my 6,5-06. I had to turn 10 MOA into the wind that day, with 140grs A-max @ 910m/s.
    I guess the 6mm's would have had to turn even more that day.
