Matches

Ever heard of the "Crawfish Match"? It's one of the premier group matches in the USA. It's held in La. every year. A rifle that shoots in the .1's could easily win that match. Your MBR stock would not be legal under IBS or NBRSA rules. Put it in another stock and get it down to 13.5 lbs. and she'll be "race ready".

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.

Doesn't matter what he's shooting if it shoots consistantly in the .1's. That was my point to begin with.

Take things one at a time!

#1 break the barrel in with about 20 to 30 rounds and clean
after every shot for the first 10 shots,Then clean after every
2or 3 shots for the next 10. By then you should feel the bore
getting slick.

#2 Now after a good cleaning Shoot several groups to see if
they group or string (dont worry about the size just the shape)
because a line of hits horizontal or vertical normaly means a
poor stock to action/barrel fit.

#3 If it shoots a round group then all it may need is some load
development.If not go to step #4.

#4 Bed the entire action but leave the tip pressure point.(It can
be removed later) to help align the action during bedding.

#5 Shoot to see if bedding helped ,if not remove the pressure
point and shoot again.with barrel floated .

#6 Only take one step at a time and you may find that it shoots
well with out a lot of work.

#7 At this point it should be just a mater of load development to
get the most out of your rifle.

It sounds like a lot of work but it's worth it to get a good shooting
rifle in the end.

I guarantee 1/2 MOA on all of the custom rifles that I build and this
is the method that I use because it works for me.

If a factory rifle has a good barrel it can be made to shoot well.

Ibrsa

Mr. Roscoe, what is the IBRSA? I have not heard of this group. Do they concern themselves with only longrange?

Thanks every one.

J E Custom, I will follow your advice.
I have just started the break in process, only 4 rounds down the barrel yet.
Im waiting for a Leupold VX-III LRT 6.5-20x50 and Burris Signature rings now, the package will be here within 2 weeks I hope, so I cant do any real testing yet.

Were talking about the same thing, IBS to some, IBRSA to others
