Give them .308 and make it challenging.


The original biathlons were done at 200 and 400 yards with military bolt guns with military ammo.

Since Air rifles and .22LR is all the Europeans are allowed, they grow up with them and have built some incredibly crazy accurate rifles. The Hammerli airguns with electronic triggers are awesome to shoot, but very far from "affordable".

That's because most have never had the heart rate above 80 let alone try to shoot with it at 140

I'd wager the average GD member's resting heart rate is above 80

I was also impressed by how close the whole match was too. From Gold to Silver was less than 6 seconds after a near 25 minute event. And the poor Russian guy in 4th was just .7 second from a medal in front of the home town crowd.

I picked up a BB 7-2. Paid $400 for it. It has a GREAT trigger and is very accurate. The actual Biathlon Rifles have a different barrel and a different safety ... and, of course, a different stock. Not that there is anything wrong with the BB 7-2 barrel ... it is great, hammer forged to help eliminate any stresses.

I bought a roughed in stock blank from Boyd's that did not have the inlet cuts ... was for a Ruger 10/22

In the old days, when it was mostly a Nordic competition, they all used service rifles, usually in 6.5x55.


Yep, and the ranges were much longer, too. IMO they should still use service rifles (bolt-action, though) and service pistols for the various shooting events that used to use them.
The finest opportunity ever given to the world was thrown away because the passion for equality made vain the hope for freedom.

They should have different categories. While I enjoy watching the current bi I would love watching it with service rifles and bigger calibers. No fancy rifles just run of the mill bolt action rifle or even semi if they want.

it started out with 6.5 swede

its just not practical now, in terms of venues and courses, and centerfire rifles that accurate are much more expensive. .22 shooting is like go kart racing, fun to do, its about technique not gear, but not as fun to watch. Also, have you tried shooting small bore with a lightweight rifle? its hard enough with a slow heartrate, i cant imagine it with your heart racing.

Pretty much biathlon except running vice skiing. Oh, and the rifles stay at the shooting range.

They are pretty basic but everything is good quality. The butt is confusing as hell though. I couldn't shoulder my cousin's Anschutz without being super uncomfortable. The harness/sling is pretty cool but requires practice to use well.

Were we watching the same biathlon? Those were some pretty tricked out rifles.

Probably because it was setup to fit her shoulder. Those butt plates adjust several different ways, and to set one up for yourself would take quite a bit of time and a second person to get everything where it needs to be. Heck even the trigger on some of those guns have 6 or so different position adjustments

That would explain it. She's a twig. She could whip the harness on and off super fast, while I was all derrrrrrrrrrp when I tried.
