Nice rifle JB. I too have not got to shoot much this year so far. The Winter/Spring was cold, rainy and blustery and we never had a calm day. Summer has been HOT, wet, and stormy and again we have rarely had a calm day. I just got back from a week in MOAB and am still marveling at the open spaces out there.
I have been addicted to bikes (of all kinds) since 1991, so I have a pretty good grasp on the community. I am constantly building new bikes and selling old ones (by old I mean like 1 year or less, I have issues). So if you ever have any questions feel free to give me a shout any time! Ill get you my cell and you can call or text me as much as you want, I love talking bikes & guns...Very cool JBell!
The bike intrigues me quite a bit. I've been looking at them trying to decide the route to go for getting started without having buyer's remorse later on.
jbell, that's an unusual build. I will watch with interest as you shake it out.
I take it the picture is Emily and Peyton. I know the original 6x5 was some five years ago but they've gone from little kids to young ladies. I clearly remember the seven and eight year old that were ahead of me in the standings. I was in my mid sixties then but looking at those two now puts in a different perspective. I really am old.
Nice shooting...At that distance, way too many variables to deal with. That is a heck of a rifle. What bore guide do you use for your 54 action?I was able to get out and try the Anschutz at 230 yards today. The weather was a bit unforgiving, challenging to say the least. With one front moving out and another coming in the winds kicked my ass. It would be steady full value one minute and then come right at me the next anywhere from 4 to 10 mph. My method for dealing with it was to pick a condition and put 5 rounds on target before it changed, so I was shooting pretty damn fast. It is a good thing the Anschutz feeds and ejects like a boss!
It isn't anything impressive at all but here it is:
Here is one of the rifle and my shooting position:
I am looking forward to getting out with a little better conditions soon. The top 3 targets were shot with Center X and the bottom 3 were Lapua Midas + for reference.
Years ago I was, and I really want to get back into it. I always enjoyed it and so when I built this rifle being able to properly shoot irons was a requirement! I haven't taken the time to get fit for a coat yet or even order a high quality set of sights, but I am looking forward to it.Nice JBell! I noticed the bloop tube on the above pic, are you a sling shooter as well?
CCI produces (OEM) all the HMR & HM2 no matter the brand name on the label. Hornady does not have the capability (machines) to produce their own rimfire product.The label on the 17HM2 may say Hornady
but the manufacture date code and box are CCI.
Made by CCI, labeled for Hornady.
See that pic above regarding CCI primer application...
Rifle: CZ 455 varmint, stock with the exception of Xray chassis and trigger spring. Vortex Viper PST Gen2.Nice shooting Eddie. Only two questions:
I count 9 targets, this thread we take 6 consecutively fired 5 round targets to get an average size. So unfortunately we can not pick the 6 best targets, just the 6 best that were shot consecutively. That way everyone is on an even playing field. Let me know and Ill get them posted up.
