Never been to the Crawfish but I beleive James Mock, one of the guys that shoots with us has been several times, I'll have to pick his brain about it. If a man shows up at the Crawfish with a 6BR though, he's shooting for second place. All up my gun weighs 19.5 to 20lbs. Prior to our matches starting in March I'll be re-barreling it with a Heavy Varmint, still wont make weight. The current barrel has over 2,500 rounds through it. At a group type match a 6BR wont hang with a 6PPC. I did say .1's with ease but, not every time I squeeze the trigger. I built the rifle for our local matches and one we shoot north east of Monroe, LA. Theres talk of that match being a 600 yard IBRSA sanctioned event next year though. At our last score match, myself and James Mock shot a 199 out of 200. He beat me by several X's though. I finished second to a 6PPC. Might have to build one of those one day.
