Yeah Tim, I'll plan to be there with a pair of bolt guns and factory loads that I hunt with; hopefuly y'all can help me out a bit with stretching their range....maybe even getting a qual card for the longer stuff?
Link Posted: 1/10/2006 5:24:19 PM EDT
I might tag along

Do you guys know if they provide spotting scopes for the 200 yard area?

Not really. But if you have a good scope 10x and better and shoots a bigger hole than the .223. You can spot your self.
Link Posted: 1/11/2006 1:26:11 PM EDT
I am shooting 223, and I don't have a scope...
My spotting scope is on backorder hinking.gif
Guess I'll just wait till it comes in before I shoot at that range.

Thanks for the info.

A few of us have spotting scopes you can use. I might be able to spot for you using my scope.
Link Posted: 1/11/2006 2:41:33 PM EDT
I will be there on Sat. with a customer shooting skeet around 10am. After I was going to bring my AR and my pistol. If you see someone with a ANGOLA visor that me. See you there.

No, but they will give you a loner (if they have any left) when you pay. You just have to give them your DL, tell then you are headed to 200, and they loan you one. They are nothing great, but will probably work.

Weather permitting, I will be back down at 600 again. If it is very windy, probably be at 200 firefroming some new brass...
Link Posted: 1/13/2006 3:30:33 PM EDT
The winds are forecast to be light and primarily from the North....should be pretty favorable conditions.

gotta bail out on this one. hospital call.........


sorry you all. but I do have a nice XOTIC USS scope on the way in replacement for my BL scope.
it's basically a Bausch and Lomb on steroids. variable power.

Ask at the desk when you pay they had some. You may have to leave you DL at the desk

Anyone gonna have a Chrono there? I would like some readings to verify a load.

Also Volder Mor**. How did you get that scope. I was under the impression it is not on the market due to a redesign...

oh a little this and that.......

well I'm trading the BL straight up for it through Chris Farris at swfa. Called him up yesterday about it and he said yes.


Prolly buy the redesign too if I like this one enough.

Nice to meet you guys today. Enjoyed the shooting as well, could not have asked for better weather. God Bless Texas!!!

You aint kidding. Good to shoot with you guys. The Ranger is a hell of a shot too!!!
Link Posted: 1/14/2006 10:42:38 PM EDT
Indeed, it was nice meeting you as well, Mark....those were some damn nice groups that you were printing!

Unfortunately, by the time we visited, the 7lb10oz .30-06 had taken its toll on my ability to hit anything smaller than a barn.

Thanks also to Tim for the difficult spotting, particularly considering the mirage and my poor marksmanship.

Hopefully, I will be within MOD this coming week.

Thanks for the kind words. Here is a pic of the group the guys are referring to, it was shot at 600 yards, F-class style, with my 6.5 Grendel F-class rifle:

Link Posted: 1/15/2006 3:23:57 PM EDT
WalkerTexasRanger, do you have a pic of your F-Class? I would love to see it. Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to go out this weekend, wife had me working to clean our garage..

Dayum!! Nice group. I need to start going back out there.

And I thought I was doing good at 600..
Link Posted: 1/16/2006 9:12:41 AM EDT
Maybe we can get something together in the next few weeks. Got more loads to test still and problems to figure out.

Link Posted: 1/16/2006 9:29:13 AM EDT
I've got some .308 168grn Sierra match kingloads I need to compare to some 175s at 600. I might try to get out there this Saturday. I need to zero my rifle though cause I bedded it and have not shot it since.
Link Posted: 1/16/2006 10:15:12 AM EDT
How many MOA's do you need from 300 to 600?

I might come and join you guys this weekend, have some more 175's to try.

For the 168's with a 100 yard zero (about 2650 for velocity), I need 5.25 MOA at 300 and 16.5 MOA at 600.

For the 175's, with a 100 yard zero (about 2600 for velocity), I need again 5.25 MOA at 300 and almost 17 MOA at 600.\

ETA---->175 data is theoretical as I have not shot the 175's at 600 yards.
Link Posted: 1/16/2006 11:09:10 AM EDT
Thanks, I just wanted to make sure I have enough left to get there.

Tim - here is an online ballistics calculator. It is pretty simple and was within 1/2 MOA with its projections of what I actually used. Close enough to get you on the paper and go from there...

www.eskimo.com/~jbm/ballistics/traj_basic/traj_basic.html

If the weather cooperates, I will probably go back out next weekend. That is unless I feel the need to browse at the big gun show down @ Reliant. Choices are good

Yo Ranger, I have a few links to those, but since my gun didnt function 100%, I wasnt able to get any velocity data from the guy next to us with the Chrono.
