Er dont want to sound naive but whats the gunslinger challenge?

I remember seeing an article about some comp some where in a magazine , random targets, unknown distances type thing.
The more formal disciplines of BR comps dont really do it for me, although most of my mates do it, but this I may be interested in, if you have details PM me.

Hi Shooter, Not sure on a number, if some one knows chime in but,

Awesome rig. I would also like to know your technique on how you finished your stock.

Re: Barnard 338 Lapua

Sorry for the delay, been on holiday.

Hunter, If you find the post in the hunting section, I gave full details on how to do the paint, and paint used.
If you cant find it PM me and i will tell ya, long process though.

Redhead, The load I have settled on is 92 gr ADI 2225 with a 300 gr SMK 10 thou off the lans, CCI mag primer and Lapua Brass, this combo is giving me 2850 fps and its a death ray.
Ive had some teething problems with it, like brass being the biggest(was using Norma) all those are gone now and its a pleasure to shoot.
I now have a 1250 yrd gong which is going to get a pasting real soon.

Regards 300WSMMAD

Re: Barnard 338 Lapua

I'll add that I think that paint job is pretty slick. Damn good idea with the fishnet.
