Re: 6.5-284 mutt whacka'
Cotton gloves? My hands look like hamburger that's played in poop. Embarrassing when taking the lady to dinner and your hands resemble a Sasquatch!
I left that "fuzz" in there just to see who'd see it first.
We have a winner!
Actually, it's a chip left over from me crowning the barrel late last night. No worries, I patched her up before heading out to wring it out. The little vice/cradle on the bench is to blame for that fiasco. These are made by Berry's manufacturing. Picked them up at Shot Show.
Overall, very, very nice product. Well made, etc. One little problem. DON'T TRUST THE EFFING CRAP VELCRO! They used some sticky back stuff and the glue SUCKS. This gun took a "peter pan" off the damn thing onto the floor last week. I had to sand the stock over, cut the crown again, and go over everything with a fine tooth comb.
I called them and informed them, they said "we'll handle it." Have not heard a word since. Normally I don't broadcast stuff like this, but for what I paid for them and after what happened AND considering its been almost a week I think I've been patient.
Like I said, IT IS a good product overall that's very well made. Just beware that the velcro is an afterthought that will need to be addressed first thing.
Ok, back to shooting talk:
It's S. Dakota in April which means overcast, 35 degrees, 20+mph winds, and wet.
Groups showed promise. I slapped the ammo together. 56g of short cut 4831, a lapua 140g lawn dart, norma case and a seating depth of "about that much".
Elevation at 100 was spot on but it wandered left and right about 5/8-3/4 inch. It's gusty so I'm blaming the wind and the shooter not caring enough to stay on top of it.
400 yard groups were ok. A little big so I'll go back this evening when hopefully this crap weather settles down.
