NH Long Range BPCR Shoot

Post by 45bpcr » Fri May 11, 2012 7:11 pm

Well, sorta long range, 500 yds ok?
My club is going to hold it's first ever long range BPCR shoot on August 19th
I have no idea what the format will be.
I don't know if we'll be shooting paper or steel.
I am however 100% sure that I'm going to be corraled into having something to do with it 8)
I'm also 100% sure it'll be cheap $$$$ to attend.

I also give you all my personal word that it will be a good time for all

PM me here and I'll give you all the info.

Sorry to be so last minute about this.
Here's the info for the first shoot my club's going to have.
It will be off benches and front rests are allowed.
I'll be there to help folks with sight settings.

I am going to work up a set of plans to make cross sticks for off the bench. My friend has some that he won (I believe) and you can buy them,

like these,

but I bet we can build them for a whole lot less

Using a set of sticks off the bench would make it a little more traditional....

I have been in touch with Bryan Y. I will post pictures and cost here for every one's benefit. I have shot off these "bench" cross sticks before and they do replicate using sticks the regular way pretty much as to the way barrel harmonics and torque are affected .

I have been shooting off concrete benches with front rest and pad, but it is just not the same effect as shooting off sticks in the way the rifle reacts (to a degree).

We discussed the idea of cross sticks.
We figured that 1st timers may not even own a set, but everyone has a front rest of some type.
We wanted this 1st shoot to be - easy - for folks who wanted to see if they could even hit something @ 500 yds.
Hence the large paper targets, benches and rests.
Me and Wyoduster will bring our equipment and shoot it the way it's supposed to be done.
We'll also help new comers to establish sight settings.
Depending on the turn out and level of sucess we'll change it to "the right way" in future matches.

I'll also let folks try shooting off my sticks if they have ammo left over.
It's all about getting people involved in the sport.

I was just trying to say that bench rest cross sticks simulate shooting off sticks better than the other kinds of front rests. I have one that has a little bag that you put sand or something in. I filled mine with walnut tumbling media. my rifles react different off that bag -vs- off the sticks, even the bench type.

Bryan gave me persmission to share his pictures. His sticks are $25.00 plus shipping. he posts on here as bryany

the third pic is a set my friend has. I thought that they were Bryan's and the pictures confirm these are. these sticks are really great for doing load development and shooting where there are concrete benches and you need your rifle to react the same as off sticks prone or sitting.

as you can see Bryan's set are pretty well thought out. he doesn't finish them so a person can stain them however they want to.

45 BPCR,
by some chance are you going to be holding a BPCR bench match weekend of Sept 22/23?

I will be in Burlington,VT around that time. About how far away is that from Canterbury NH?
Would not be able to bring a gun to shoot, since we will also be travelling in Canada later. But maybe if not too far away I may be able to get away
and bring step in law and grandson to see our game

Regards,
beltfed/arnie

Our first shoot at the club has come and gone.
A good time was had by all.
There were 4 of us :-)
Phil and Ken drove up from Mass and Greg came over from Weare NH.
We didn't shoot steel we shot regulation sized targets painted on paper.
Neither Phil or Ken had ever shot at 500 yds before but they both managed several hits on paper and the one steel ram we have.
We didn't use time limits and we had un-limited sighters to get on target.
It was ment as a fun shoot and we pulled that off.
Our clubs Prez called me today and we talked about having some stand alone events for long range BPCR.
If there's an intrest we will.
I wasn't planning on being in charge of it, I just had a few ideas as how to make it as close to real Silouette shooting as possible.
I've put up some pics of the targets I made for the shoot.

Many Thanks to Wyoduster for helping spot.

I'm interested. It's a bit of a haul for me (I live in CT) but with enough notice I can usually free up the day. Am a beginner at BPCR, so any time spent with other shooters will be knowledge gained.
