    Load recommendation for 1000 yards

    My barrel length is 24". I have exactly the same rifle that you have. For me 175gr Matchking worked extremely well in accuracy, but my most accurate load was overpressured and I had problems opening the bolt. So I discard it. Did you have better results with 175 Matchking or with 175 Tipped...

    Load recommendation for 1000 yards

    Actually I have to say that the load with Sierra 168 HPBT was extremely good. At 600 yards I competed with custom F-class rifles and I did better than half of them. And at 1000 yards I know the accuracy was very good, because I was previously trying the load shooting stones at 1000 yards with...

    Load recommendation for 1000 yards

    That's the problem. The options here are not very much. I have different kinds of bullets, but only RS and Vihtavuori powder. The twist is 1:11,25. So 195gr bullets were not stable. Maybe I should try Sierra TMK 175gr, what do you think about it?

    Load recommendation for 1000 yards

    Hi, all! I have been shooting last weekend at 880 meters to a target in a championship and I had a very big problem because the bullets came subsonic to the target and the sensor did not detect most of them. It was strange because I used my usual load and it never happened. I used a Remington...

    Fast twist rifle

    Tikka was my first choice, but in those calipers they only offer twist 1:11 here. I think we are not so lucky here in Spain. I can't buy a rifle in the supermarket hahaha. I've just asked for this model to my gunsminth. We will see if he has it with the twist I want. Thank you. Someone else...

    Fast twist rifle

    By the way, as you know so many options, if you can recommend one rifle good enough to shoot under 1/2 MOA with reloaded ammo it would be great.

    Muzzle Brake for Remington 700

    Hello guys, thanks for your answers and sorry for the delay in my reply. You are right, I'm from Spain. My rifle doesn't have a thread and in Spain it's very difficult to make one in the rifle because the modifications in weapons are very controlled. I would have to write a lot of documents and...

    Two engineers Shooting from Spain!

    This is in Santa Fe I remember Santa Fe very well. Dolly Parton was there, but we didn't recognized her in the beginning. So we asked her to make a photo. She thought the photo was with her. I will never forget her face when we said that she had to take the photo for us hahaha

    Best bullet for long range shooting

    Thanks so much for your answers guys. I'm going to try the 195tmk first because Canhunter35 has the same rifle. If it doesn't go well, I'll try the rest of them.

    Best bullet for long range shooting

    Hello, could you recommend me a bullet better than the SMK HPBT 175 gr to shoot targets further than 1000 yards? I am using it right now, but I want to try if there is something better, with better aerodynamics. I am looking for something than can keep supersonic more distance. My rifle is a...

    WW2: Spanish blue division in the Siege of Leningrad

    Hi guys, I have seen this video of the WW2 about the attack to the Soviet Union. It is told by a Spanish sergeant who participated in the siege of St. Petersburg. It may be of interest to some of you, because it talks about war and I think many of you served in the army. The description of the...
