The Long Range Precision Shooting Thread
 
Who's doing this at a competitive level and who's in it for the fun and challenge of it?

What works and what doesn't?


What are you using and why?

Thanks for that link.

I just read the whole warehouse story sitting here with my mouth hanging open.

I lived and breathed guns for quite a while, 'till I got back into riding. After the house is done, I'm going to have to put my reloading bench back together and fit some shooting into my crowded social calendar.

I don't have the patience, but my brother had a single shot bolt action 50 BMG. Very accurate and would go a long way.

Holy shit! BANG! I freakin loved pulling the trigger on that rifle! We still have a chunk of 1.25" structural steel with many holes clean through. :huh :clap

It had a Walther barrel and the rest was custom made. With the muzzle brake, it was a sweetheart to shoot. Less kick than a 12ga.

I'm a former competitive handgun shooter.... I know nothing of long guns, save for the Mini 14 I have to qualify quarterly on (for work).

How is the new(er) Mini 14 "Target" looked upon by folks who know 'bout long guns???

My Remington 5-R should be back from the smith tomorrow. I had G.A Precision re-barrel it to a .260. I'll have to get some pics up when I get a chance. Lot's of great long range matches around Colorado and New Mexico.

Here's a pic before I sent if off the GAP.

Is that steel scattered all over out there? That looks like an AWESOME place to shoot! :nod

I love my Mini 14, I can get 6 inch groups at 200 yards with it. I think it could be better but its not the guns fault.

I almost bought a Mini 14 Target this year, But I fell in love with the CZ 452 FS
Off to the range today to see how it shoots.

I have 4 heavy barrelled Savages I shoot prairie dogs with. All have been tinkered with to some degree. All but 1 re-stocked, all but 1 re-triggered, and 2 re-barrelled. Savages are great for guys who like to do things themselves and don't want to put up with waiting for gunsmiths. I have a decent AR, too, a Rock River Predator Pursuit. I like the bolt actions more, but the AR is fun sometimes.

I'd like to know a little more why the Savage rifles are easier to work on. I've never had one. The Accu-Trigger sounds interesting. :ear

Those are little green men shaped like soldiers. They are reactive targets that fall back when hit. There were some targets that are painted to look like the front of trucks that are reactive as well. That picture was taken at Camp Guernsey WY.
