Edgewood. I don’t remember the dimensions off the top of my head
There's a Crimson Trace 5-25X56 on the Bergara, and a Vortex Viper PST Gen II 5-25X50 on the Vudoo. I use the Vudoo for matches.
Edgewood bags are outstanding
Overkill for this pic.
Kids stay on the low levels. Ran out of concrete, will fix that tomorrow.
Installed the 5 piece .22 LR KYL at 50 yards yesterday, 1 1/4" down to 1/4".
I'm going to hang some targets off of the bottom 4x4 soon.
Been setting up my reloading room (kinda) at the new house today so I can load this week for a Regional match next weekend. Missed a great one day match near Kansas City yesterday, and it has been 2 weeks since I shot my last match, so I’m gonna need a lot of tune up before the RCBS Rumble in 3wks.
Waiting on the brief, and they are waiting on the fog
Next is IPSCs at 300, 383, 473, & 645 yards, 33%, 45%, 45%, 100%. Two hits. What the heck is going on, am I that rusty unstable???
Next is PRS skills stage, 8 easy hits, right? Jeff argues to trust the dope and keep shooting, but stubborn me takes .3 off and hit four, get up and am told I am low. Jeff says the last shot was 2 mil low right from center. Holy crap. Barrel that bad? Crosshairs were on the plate. I thought......sigh
I settle down, trust the dope, and over the next four stages (Bowling 340, 418, 535, 585, & 750 (hit but late): Pipes 686/15" square & 688/12" square: Helo 287, 323, 332, 662 (Hit but late), & Big/Small 237, 513, 540, 573, & 610, I miss only two shots I took, two didn't count, but I hit them.
So as bad as I started out, I collected myself and shot well afterwards. I haven't shot centerfire since Jan or Feb (Busy moving etc), and boy was I rusty. Finished out 5 for 10 on the mover. Not great, not bad, but I tend not to shoot it great anyway.
Rock Mover (Me)
I shot a match in Feb? March? with it and it did great, but as I posted then I was anxious to see how it did in the heat/mirage.
Bottom line is I saw things I haven't seen in the Bushnell XRS II yet. I'm not knocking the XRS II, it's an excellent scope, but the Zeiss glass takes it to another level. At it's price level it should of course, but it's nice to prove it. I could make out much more detail at distance through the mirage than I could with the Bushnell. As I posted before, the clicks are not worthy of this price level, they could be crisper for sure, and I wish they had gone with bright white for the numbers/dashes on the turret instead of off white, that would help these old eyes. I forgot to put on my readers before I got into the helicopter, and when I had to dial I needed them. In the bright sunlight I could have gotten by, but in the shade I could barely see them much less make them out without readers. Young eyes might differ. The eye box is bigger than on Jeff's Kahles, which I like a lot because I hate a small eye box. The smaller eye box doesn't bother him. YMMV
Anyone, an A for the Zeiss.
Is this a proprietary mag for Bergara or do the other full size patterned 22 trainer rifles use the same style mag?
Lone Peak Fuzion Action
Brux 1.250" 27" Barrels
MPA BA Hybrid Chassis
Leupold 5HD 5x25-56mm
Spuhr 35mm Mount
Area 419 HellFire
Accu-Tac BR4 G2 Bipod
I don’t know of another mag that will work. The Vudoo mag is real close, but they generally don’t work.
Now that is going to be SWEET!
Like I mentioned in another thread, buy a piece at a time and it doesn’t hurt so much.
Thank you and aint' that the truth!!!
Thanks, I'll just stick with the Bergara mags then.
Have you considered going the 6BRA route? All upside in my opinion. Even fire forming is a piece of cake. I developed a fire forming load that’s so accurate I actually fire formed my brass during a match.
More case capacity = more top end velocity
Ackley Improved = no brass trimming
I can’t come up with a reason to run a straight 6BR
Same for my Dasher, a little les velocity, but plenty of accuracy for a PRS match. Your requirements are tighter.
nailed it right here....while fire forming my 6 Dasher from 6BR Lapua- I was getting lots of .2 and .3s while fire forming...Than Alpha Came out with their OCD Brass- which my Dasher loves. She's still shooting into .2 and .3s at ~1600 rounds now on the current barrel. I have a few boxes of 6BR Lapua brass that I haven't fireformed yet. For PRS regional matches, it will hang out to 1K with the Dasher...no fire forming, and my smith/local guy/shooting mentor has a 6BR reamer as well.
something new something different - just something in my head I guess
Don't get me wrong, the Dasher is a sweetheart. She will eventually get a new barrel as well.
the last 5 rounds out of the current Dasher on her proof Barrel (zeroed the calipers after measuring a single shot on paper, than outer to outer).
Use would be for general longer range 22 plinking and POSSIBLY a couple 22 matches a year. I dont have the time nor desire to actually be competitive at this time. If I decide to go all in on competition in a few years when Im able to, Ill also be in a better position to just order a Vudoo.
I do like the HMR stock on the Bergara and the fact that it takes R700 parts, even though it's doubtful I'll actually change anything. I read the CZ will usually shoot a little better and the Bergara action can be a bit rough out of the box. The Boyds Varmint Pro stock on the CZ should be fine for me and if not there is a bit of an aftermarket out there for it. The KRG Bravo would be an easy option.
Yep, Bergara bolts can be very tight to easy, unless they have fixed it, I had to fix mine, so tight to close it was unusable as is.
A lady was shooting the CZ At-One Varmint with the adjustable cheek riser and length of pull and was wearing us out a couple of matches ago, a real fine choice
Thanks Walkalong. Ill have to see if I can find some of the CZ locally to handle. The At-One stock is intriguing but from pictures it just looks soooo ugly to me.
Toric 4-20X50 PRS LR MRAD FFP scope. It will go on my NRL-22 rifle.
I have never looked through one of their scopes, but have used some Tract 12.5X binoculars and they were very impressive.
I like the looks and turrets, clicks are very nice. I like the pull out to turn turret design. Zero stop setup looks really easy.
150 yard target, head is 3"X4"
It's at the end of the right lane.
I also have some NRL-22 type hangers and paddles I can put wherever I want to.
