Great stock to shoot with also!

Hey Mike, long time no chat!

Chuck hunting at that distance was a blast, it was pretty challenging to be honest. I learned which bullets I don't want to use anymore. And which to consider.

Shooting live varmints at that distance is a bigger challenge than I would have realized. You don't get too many sighters on a grey bearded rockchuck, and you have to be smart about wind and set up. I don't hunt them but once or twice a year due to limited numbers and accessability. It's always a treat.

Mike, you ougta know who that is behind the bino's in that picture. The guy who bailed our buns out, when the digging got tough I haven't forgot that day. Think snow. His 257 Weatherby is shooting great, accounting for some meat in freezer this year.

Give me a PM sometime, fill me in on the lastest.

Man those are some nice'uns you have there. I guess owning one Dasher isn't good enough, I notice a few of the Dasher guys have more than one. I am definetly sold on em. Yours look like works of art.

My project has been way too much fun. I had some pressure probs in mid summer but, it was because I wasn't properly removing the carbon ring. I have done ok in F-Class and somewhat competitive in heavy gun class in 600 BR. I still have alot of things to figure out, in this BR game. The 1" white dot looks so small on the NBRSA 600 YRD target on 25x.

My goals this year for 2009 is revamp my rest head on the Fire-Control. I want to see if by improving this bag setup actually helps my groups. It's worth a try. Also get a higher magnification scope, so I can see that little white dot on the 600 NBRSA target alittle better. Get a new blank ordered and chambered up. And most importantly enjoy another year shooting F-Class and BR, its been fun meeting these guys and clowning around. Good times this year 2008.

Happy New Year!

Re: 6 Dasher

Flybuster, what is your barrel diameter from breech to muzzle. Also, what is the model of your stock.

Re: 6 Dasher

Hi, I decided to get the 1.250" straight cylinder, as the gun was originally desinged as an F-Class gun. Weight limit for F-Class Open is about 22lbs.

If I had known BR was in my future, I would have built the gun with a heavy Varmint contour for light gun class.

The gun weighs 19.5lbs with the Leupold scope.

The stock is a Robertson GBF. GBF stands for Great Britan F-Class, the stock was designed by their F-Class team. You won't find it the Robertson composite stocks webpage though. It feels really good to me, and I like it much better than Robertsons Speedy F-Class stock, which feels awequard to me.

Feel free to ask any more questions.
