Hello from Michigan

Hello, I sure am glad to see all you long range shooters here! looks like there will be some great reading.

Things are frozen in Michigan now, that makes for some good yote huntin I use a 22 bench rest(.244" neck), resting in a walnut/cherry laminated thumbhole stock, 12X Leupold glass, 24" - 12 twist douglas S.S. barrel, tuned timney trigger, all feed from a Swdeish M96 Mauser action.

My Long range rig is a 6.5x55 Ackley Improved, 24" - 9 twist E.R. Shaw barrel, 12oz trigger and 24X weaver glass. Miss Ackley will drive tacks with IMR 4831 pushing 123 grain Match knigs. The newest addition is a vintage 1960's bench rest rig ; 300 Weatherby magnum with 36X optics, walnut/maple laminated big fatty stock, 30" hart S.S. barrel all weighting in at 63lbs!

Enough rambling I need to scout around this site.

Any one have input on these Huskeman optics shown on this site? never heard of them...

Re: Hello from Michigan

Welcome Bob, if you ever get to the Traverse City area I have a private range with plates from 420 - 1000 yards and an additional area at 1500. Snow or not I shoot all year at least a couple times a week.

Re: Hello from Michigan



This is the 63 lb, 300 weatherby magnum! old school for sure with lots of lead and rails for proper straight bag tracking. Build in PA then transfered to CA and finally here in Mich.
