Re: Shooting a 223 to a Mile Accurately By Jerry Teo

I enjoyed the article, a lot. I have been experimenting with a 7 twist 223 and the 90gr bergers and SMKs with limited sucess. I was planning on using it in F-TR but cant get groups better than MOA at 600 even though it shoots bugholes at 100. I think that a little more velocity is called for with these bullets, but am unsure. I am going to try some RL 17 when I find some. Hopefully that will wake it up. I would back down to the 80s but I throated it very long for the 90 gr. bullets. If the Rl 17 doesnt work I guess I will have to set the barrel back a bit.

In F-open you can shoot anything so long as it is under 22 lbs and doesnt have a muzzle brake. There are some rest restrictions for f-open.
The limits are 8.25 kg and 10.0 kg, translating to U.S. lbs as approx. 18.15 lbs (~18lb 3 oz), and 22 lbs. You can use bipod and/or sling for F/TR.

Re: Shooting a 223 to a Mile Accurately By Jerry Teo

Jerry,

Interesting article! Due to scope issues with the 6 Dasher, my wife ended up shooting a .223 Rem @ Chilliwack for the BCRA match. 80gr Bergers over RE-15, worked just fine out to 600m. She stayed home from Portland, but I tested the gun @ 800, 900, & 1000yds - and exercised a new target puller in the process ;) It held elevation well - surprising, as DR is kind of treacherous in that regard, but it did get punted about in the wind a bit more than we expected (being used to normally running B155 VLDs @ 2960-3080 or so).

I think with a 30" tube and maybe running the Berger or JLK 90gr VLDs stateside it could hold some promise for 1k F/TR. As is... after watching some Canadians running .223 Rem these past two years @ BCRA, I sure wouldn't bet against 'em @ 600m and in!

Thanks Milanuk, I do not shoot FTR...yet and my gun is more of a sporter weight so I havent had to worry with the weight restriction, but I came pretty close off the top of my head. I did preface it with "I think" because I couldnt remember.

Jerry,

I enjoyed the article very much. Frustrations did not stop you, that alone is a great lesson of perseverance.

Great writing and shooting!

Thanks for sharing.

I expected Jerry to be much older than that; I'm surprised! :confused:

That's a big smile that I would also have if I was hitting them rocks a mile away with a little 223!
