I love this gun, but If I had to start over. I might have made it a 17 pound gun. Just so that I can make light gun class in 600-1000 yard benchrest.
I thought about that before I built the gun, but at that time we didn't have 600 yard benchrest in Portland.

That's ok, because I can still shoot Heavy gun. That just means I have to build another gun for light class....RIGHT???

I don't know if or any compromise it would be to make the gun any lighter, for F-Class. 17lb vs. 20+lb.

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.
That portable shooting bench look familiar. Nice rifle by the way.
To achieve the maximum possible accuracy, all variables must be remove or at least minimize.

Hmmm, I wonder where I stole that design.....

Yeah it dosn't work half bad! I shoot mostly prone, but there are times you just need a bench, like cronographing. My dad can't lay on his belly, and if he did he couldn't get up. So there's the solution. Thanks for your design and compliment.

I wanted to test that load again to make sure it wasn't a fluke. The load was a 105 Berger VLD +.015 into lands over 33 grains of Reloader-15, CCI 450 Small Mag. Primer.

I don't think it was a fluke. This group breaks Powder River Sportsmans Club current 1000 yard record, which is currently 4 and 3/16"..... My group is 3.80" Unfortunately this wasn't shot at a match. Although I had 5 witnesses, who were setting up to shoot a black powder match.

Here's a recent long range rockchuck hunting trip.

I have received my new cronograph. I shot my 105 Berger VLD load with 33 grains of Re-15. Average velocity was 3047fps and E.S. was 13 fps for 5 shots. I'll stick with this load for now.
