    Which shooting rest/bipod??

    Here's some shooting with a lightweight bag on a tripod.

    Which shooting rest/bipod??

    In my humble opinion, the tripod is the single most valuable tool after a rangefinder. With my rifle and tripod, we've taken animals out to 730 yards. I can get as steady as prone with my tripod, and it reduces the number of positions I have to practice with. Here's video of the first animal I shot off the tripod. I was in Colorado at the sniper training detachment just weeks before and was shown the position I use.

    WTB- Berger 6.5 140 VLD hunting projectiles

    I've got two boxes. PM sent with my cell number.
  4. Howa 6mm creedmoor (yes, 6mm not 6.5) barreled action with factory barrel cut to 20" by Bring the Edge gunsmith out of NM, muzzle threads and clean two stage trigger. The action has about 150 rounds from a custom barrel and the factory barrel is new and unfired. Includes 5/8 muzzle thread adapter and 20 moa scope rail. Action looks like you would expect. $475 (over $250 in upgrades alone) Black MDT HS3 chassis, MDT grip and a 10 round plastic MDT AICS mags. Chassis has 150 rounds on it. Makes it a great hunting rifle. Add the AR buttstock to finish it off. $425 (over $600 new) Or, MDT LSS compact chassis and MDT grip with mag. Makes a great lightweight hunting combo. Add a lightweight buttstock and have a compact deer killer. $425 (over $600 new) Buying the barreled action and chassis includes an opportunity to buy Sig copper hunting ammo and Hornady ammo. Will be priced lower than retail. I also have a few nice AR buttstocks I can add in for a complete package. $50 to $300. Two port Area 419 self timing brake. $120 Three port PVA self timing brake. $100 Radial brake. $40 or free if I keep the threaded adapter. Second 20" threaded 6mm cm factory barrel same as the first and also headspaces on the action. Will sell a new 6/6.5 cm go gauge if you want it with the barrel for what it cost me. $195 Pics wouldn't upload, can text them if you PM your cell.

    Access to chronograph?

    What he said... except I don't recommend them past 500. But, that will get close enough on most animals.

    CW Long Range Meet Up: January 30, 2021

    Was thinking about maybe an early May date for some shooting up north where it will be cooler. If not then, I am hoping for about the third week in August or thereabouts. September looks to be busy for me. A buddy drew an antelope tag and I will be hunting bear in CO or sitting blinds if we can still OTC archery for deer. You higher elevation guys, when do the fire bans hit your spots? When is it over? What dates do you think would work?

    6mm Remington deer bullet

    Interesting, I hear ELDx failure stories too. Just shows to run what you trust.

    6mm Remington deer bullet

    I've heard reports of this. Seems like if Berger's fail, that's what happens. I know guys watch the tips of the bullets to make sure they are not deformed or meplat is clogged. Its odd, because I know guys who swear by the 6.5 OTM bullets, and they have the thicker target jackets. With my 7mm 180 vld, I have gotten expansion every time. But, you have me thinking, I may try Tipped SMK for smaller calibers because expansion starts sooner on small game with the tip. I can't bring myself to shoot the ELDX. I want the full glorious detonation and carnage the thin jacketed match bullets leave behind. I might shoot the ELDM if the tipped SMK don't shoot.
