Re: 2021 Annual Texas BPCR Regional Silhouette Match

Following are the results from the 2021 TX Regional BPCR (Big Bore) silhouette match held on May 15th. The match was scheduled for two days (40 shots/day) but Mother Nature intervened. The forecast indicated a high chance of rains for day two. Rather than take a chance, a show of hands by the shoote...

I’m about to clean some 45-70 cases that were shot with black powder over 15 years ago and never cleaned.
Kevin,

Good luck. I'd sure be interested in how they turn out.

Re: Cressent butt pad to lengthen LOP?

Emmett,

Go to the ASSRA forum (https://www.assra.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl) and post the same request. I'll bet you'll get a bunch of suggestions. Beautiful rifle BTW. I meant to check it out at the match but forgot. I also shoot an original Stevens 44.

Are bench top cross sticks legal for 22BPCR? I thought I had read somewhere a couple years ago but now can't find where I saw it.
They are legal. The rules were changed last year to allow the use of bench-top sticks.

It’s a good technique which you can read about at http://www.texas-mac.com/Removing_Case_Peened_LIp_Edge.html.
