  1. What scope would be classed suitable for Benchrest shooting and what type of reticle would be used ? Budget is £900.00. shooting at diggle for 2019 so looking to purchase a scope rather than using one scope to cover Fclass and Benchrest. Nick
  2. Yes the gun handling is good, the loading of my ammo is good, still learning I think you never stop learning . My scope is 8-32 and very happy with the rifle and scope set up. My discipline is Fclass and I like the Benchrest I only wish I could shoot more Benchrest.its like vince says practice and practice gives great dividends and reflects on your scoring and wind reading which at diggle is one hell of a windy place. If you can combine everything and still hit the target and score then there is definitely an improvement. Work and family commitments reduce my attendance at times.
  3. Hi vince, want to shoot the 600 next week, as it’s my mums anniversary of her passing on 23rd .hence No shooting.
  4. Thanks, I will use my sightron for both disciplines.

    Couldn't resist.

    I’d pick up Seiko 5 sports 200 metre Kinetic watch some months ago , with broken stainless steel strap for £30.00 . RRP £350.00 put new strap on and changed seiko deploy catch over onto new strap. Looks great. have you thoughts of having a new movement in the watch that given up?

    Opinions on Sightron scopes?

    In Basc the deer department recommended no more than 6x or fixed power as shooting in forestry you didn’t need high power scopes . if you was shooting long range and had the land and a good safe back stop then a variable scope would be fine.

    Load development

    Hi all, now looking for some input, I shoot at Diggle fine club, mainly Fclass shooting, my current load for my 1-9 30” heavy profile barrel is Viht 165 with 53 gn. Using Scenar L 180 .My MV 2691. If I wanted to tweek my load what would my load be ? Is there such a thing of a sweet spot ? i don’t want to burn my barrel out, I am curious if a slightly higher charge would increase my results on paper ? cheers Nick

    Yes plotting ,wind calls is my downside, and understanding what in front of me on the plotting sheets and understanding how to correct. Nick
  11. Hi all, out of curiosity what is the weight of a Benchrest rifle? I believe there are set weights and was wondering what weights are for each component stock? Barrel? Action? Scope? And is there anything else to consider? I want to use a 6br rifle . if your rifle is over these weight guide lines can you still have your scores recorded? Nick
  12. So if my 6br say weight 16lb could i shoot 100 Benchrest?
  13. Hi firedoc, is there any limit for 100 yards shooting?

    Spoken to Laurie some time ago, his recommendations 53-54 gr my OAL is 3.117. I have been told 56.0 is more for shenane (can’t spell this word) barrels. Yes my load is very moderate. Thinking over the new year to try some load developing. cheers Big Al for yours and everyone input.
