Read what the pros use prs shooting and pick your bullet and reamer I went with Bart barrel 236 bore m24 1 in 8 shooting 105 Berger hybrids and it shoots good luckI plan to build a 6mm cm or dasher and leaning toward the cm. I have a model 700 sa almost new and was planning a Brux heavy target or heavy Varmint, 30” 7.5 twist. Don’t know what bullet weight or distance! I know this will be the first questions but this is all an experiment. I am a Pennsylvania white tail swamp hunter and long range is all new but at 59 I am hoping I can ease into a new hobby in 6 years and have this ready to go!
Please give advise on the barrel, am I on the right track? Advice is appreciated and requested! Thanks
That is weird, I shoot 26" Dashers and consistently get 40-50 fps more speed than friends running 24" Dashers, and do so with less powder.You don’t need 30” for a Dasher; it only adds about 8 fps per inch above 24” or so. Accurate shooter did a test by cutting an inch and testing repeatedly.
Not disputing what your saying but this is what a read on accurateshooter. Have no real world experience.I have some of it. The only thing is a longer neck. By trimming the neck back it can be shot in Dashers reamed for 6 BR Lapua brass.
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
