Re: Recoil

I shoot 84 grains of 3f with a 550gr bullet. Informal shooting and hunting is no problem. If I shoot a silhouette match I use a slip on recoil pad from buffalo arms. I find my concentration over a match tends to lessen without the pad.

Re: Looking for Long Range 40-65 Formula

If you shoot NRA sanctioned 1000ys matches, it is difficult to use the 40-65. They have a thing called power factor which must be met. The 40-65 was fine when you were allowed duplex loads, but now, with blackpowder only in NRA matches it is difficult. This is for the safety of the pit crews. Having...

Re: MVA reticle choice

I use the mil dot with crosshair. The top of the dot where the crosshair attaches, makes a very definate aiming reference. You also may do the same thing with the bottom of the dot. The dot is also 3 minutes across.

Re: .22 insert or dedicated rilfe for .22 LR silhouette?

I have used the 22 insert and it does well, however with that being said. I also have a 22 with air gauge barrel and match chamber. The insert lags behind it by a good bit. I find myself using the dedicated 22 the most. The insert is great practice with the silhouette rifle. Someone else my have oth...

Re: 22 BPCR target templates

My targets are 3/16, I do not know the type of steel. We shoot target 22, no high speed, there is no damage to the targets other than an impact mark. If we get too many marks, we paint the targets. My targets are hung from portable swingers and do not set on the ground. The hits are easy to see and ...

Re: 22 BPCR target templates

I was able to get four targets on swingers from Raystargets, for the BPCR style of 22 silhouette. Ray knew of an individual who had some and was the go between for me, he was very helpful. My sons and I shoot them at somewhat longer range than what is used in a match, the ram at 230 yds - 250 yds. I...

I have shot silhouette for a few years with a 38-55. It might not be the ideal rifle for this, but I enjoy it. I have rung two rams with it, I have hit a few of them. The load is 47 grs. of 3F Swiss with a Paul Jones Creedmoor, in a 1-15 twist Badger barrel. I have also shot it on paper at 600 yds. ...

If you are going to shoot 1000 yds., get the 23" scope. IF you are shooting silhouette a longer scope will work fine. Long yardage, shorter scope. Shorter yardage either the shorter or longer one, more a matter of what looks good to you.

I make targets out of white freezer wrap. Get it in rolls at the market, you tear off whatever length you want, and stick on a red dot aiming point. I am able to see holes in it as well as anything.

As well as teflon tap around the receiver to barrel bolt, you might also add another trick. Remove the receiver to barrel bolt. Remove the anvil from a SPENT large rifle primer. Drop the SPENT large rifle primer with the open cup up, into the receiver to barrel hole. Tighten the bolt. Helps to tight...

I load for 38-55, 40-65, and 45-90. The over primer wad means nothing in the first two, the 45-90 is a different story. With Goex and a Fed 215 the deviation is less and it shoots better. With Swiss and a standard Fed 210 the over primer wad makes no difference. My rifles all seem to like a less pow...
