6 Dasher

Here's my new F-Class/Varminter/600-1000 BR HV-Gun/Rock buster

Stocks made by Robertson Composite, Barrel is a Broughton, action is a Bat 3-Lug. I have a Leupold VX-III 8.5-25x50. I am extremely happy with how it turned out and so far how it shoots.



Shooting a white spot (chuckar crap) on a rock face at 905, kept drilling it.
Then I sighted in to shoot a 15-20" rock at 1022 yards, the wind was blowing the opposite direction up on the hill.

Busting some dirt, trying to hit a 900+ rock, got it on my last fireforming load

So far these are the only shots on paper, first shots out of the gun were in the upper right orange, gotta love that.

Thanks for the compliment.

I am planning on using this rifle for a local competition in a couple of weeks. It's called the T.V. shoot. A bunch of farmers and locals get together in Ione, Oregon and try to hit a T.V. sized steel plate (27") with a cold bore shot at 1030 yards.

Plus a BBQ which is always delicious!

Thank you Sir, will do!

P.S. I like the way you painted your .243, the color would blend in perfect around here and the pattern is just cool.

Some slow times at work allowed me to do some more load development.
I tested a load that showed great potential at 100 yards, a 105 Berger VLD over 33 grains of RE-15 and of course a 450 Small mag primer. The first group on paper at 1000 yards, was 6". Mostly horizontal grouping.



My second group was also the same load.
But the jerk (me) behind the trigger messed up a beautiful group......DOH!!!

I sighted in on the 8" - 1220 yard gong. I used a load I have never tested on paper, a 105 A-Max over 33 grains of Varget. After guessing what the drop would be, I was only 2.5 IPHY off.

Another long range shooter showed up and I let him shoot my rifle, we ended up hitting 5 times. I am simply amazed at this rifle, at this point.



Thanks for taking time to look.
