  1. That's a question for Marc, just PM him from the above. 😉
  2. It's an excellent place to start Lee. You can confirm your Zero at 100 and then step out in 100 increments banging away at good size steel plates to dinky steel plates until you run out of ammo! Marc will help you if needed or other shooters (all a good bunch) and excuse me for being patronising if it comes over that way (just being helpful!!) I would suggest you print a ballistic calculator/solution for your ammo based on your known estimated velocities so that you can dial in for each distance. If you have a kestrel all good but if not suggest you print off a ballistic calculator for 5 10 & 15 mph winds so that you can get a reasonable guesstimate for dialling in windage for the different distances. They also ave full coffee and biscuits and toilet facilities (and that's in order of priority for me!) 😁 It's also under cover as well. All the best G
  3. I'm not sure if anyone has successfully hit the 2 mile yet(?). I've seen the mile hit a number of times and the target just beyond on the hill (can't remember the distance). Marc what's the furthest anyone has got to? G
  4. +1 great venue, great people.
  5. If you get the chance to go I would seriously recommend it. Its a great venue with gongs every 100 yards out to 1000 yards and well beyond, Marc is also a great host and you are certain of a good day with a friendly atmosphere. G

    Neck size, or full length: has the jury decided?

    Theres a mid point, FL size but only enough to knock your shoulders back a few though which still allows for a good case alignment to your chamber. If you use a FL bushing die you can adjust as above and still play with neck tension (if thats your pleasure) or even use a Lee collet die for sizing the necks.
  7. Cheers all, I contacted Berger and they recommend 185 hybrids (optimally for the range of temps I shoot) and they also provided for info 190 and 200s to try. Was really impressed with the tech support, they provided load data, bullet stats and velocity ranges. G
  8. Thanks both. @nd what twist rate do you have? Cheers G
  9. Thanks @nd. Will read through and digest.
  10. Hi All, Looking for anyone with real world application of using heavy bullets in a 1 in 11 twist 300 Win Mag? Currently using 190 SMK and looking for best heavy (Berger or other) bullet for use out to 1000+ yards. All the best G

    I use a usb microscope bought off eBay/Amazon (circa £20) and some free software used for star gazing. I'm using a Windows tablet but the principle is the same. When I'm home I can confirm the details of the above. The bottom line is you don't have to spend a.fortune. G
