Border Wars Rifle Series / WTB 7/7/2018 Sureshot spot
« Last post by Dwilliams on May 21, 2018, 08:23:33 PM »
I was really wrapped up at work and missed out on registering for this match. I'd love to go since I've got family not too far away. Let me know if someone has a spot for sale.

Getting Started / Rifle/Caliber suggestions
« Last post by DVC on May 21, 2018, 01:57:42 PM »
Iím interested in getting started in PRS, and I'm interested in recommendations for my choice of caliber and rifle.

Caliber:
Iím contemplating one of the Creedmoor calibers Ė either 6mm or 6.5mm.  I reload for pistol, but havenít gotten set up to reload for rifle (yet?), so I was leaning toward staying with a caliber that would allow me to run factory loads.  As I live in the Northeast, I understand 6mm may be a better choice, as it has less recoil, and the typical target range would not be as far as out West, where the heavier bullet would provide an advantage.  So my question is, would the lesser recoil (and I assume, easier spotting of bullet impact) of the 6mm make it preferred for East coast matches, or is 6.5 still a safer bet?

Rifle:
I like the Tikka T3X Tac A1, but itís not available in 6mm CM (if thatís the preferred caliber).  I also like the Ruger RPR and the Bergara LPR, both of which are available in both 6 and 6.5CM.  With a plan for minimal (if any) customization to the rifle, which would be your choice?


Thanks

Introduce Yourself / NE WI New
« Last post by Cbebop on May 20, 2018, 09:44:56 AM »
Hi from NE WI. Been shooting since I can remember. Formal training courtesy of Uncle Sam and the taxpayers. Retired after 20 yrs following shooting expeditions in some of the world's most beautiful locations (sarc). Wasn't smart enough to stay home so three more trips as a PMC. Now I shoot at stuff that doesn't shoot back...less stressful.

Gonna attend Steel Challenge at Highlands in Cascade WI on Jun 02 2018 and BWRS in Lodi WI. Maybe I'll meet some of the WI group. Got a USN (frogman) friend that might ride along as long as he leaves the nautical jargon at home. Hope to meet some other shooters here and learn some things about PRS. Thanks.

Hi all,

Just clarifying your recommendation to "dry fire" the rifle....my understanding is dry firing a gun is not good for the firing pin or has that changed over the years?....By the way....I am also new to long range shooting (can't wait to get started).  I have my setup almost complete (as far as add-ons go...i.e. scope/qd mount (on the way); LRA send iT level; NightForce angle indicator; S&B PM II 5-25X56 MRad CCW 4PLF FFP and just waiting for my SilencerCo Hybrid Suppressor to finish the setup.

Hello from Virginia.  Haven't started shooting yet as I am still working on completing my Ruger Precision Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor.  Question I have for anyone with a suggestion:  I have the S&B 5-25 Police Mark II, and have ordered the Mid West 34mm QD Mount with 1.4" offset.  Just trying to confirm that this mount will handle the scope/gun for long distance shooting.  Thanks for any input.

You might want to do the dry firing in the living room.  The wife might get pissed if you set to dry firing your rifle 100 times in the "loving" room.  Just my thought on the matter  ;D

General Discussion / First RO experience
« Last post by MWDG3 on May 15, 2018, 02:33:00 AM »
A moment ago #1
This past weekend I ROíd the PRS match in Ramona OK. It was my first precision rifle match and I was definitely GREEN. Fortunately one of the ROís on my stage had experience ROíing pistol matches. Most of the shooters were helpful early on and we ended up with a good system. Only one argument from a kid that claimed target impact and the RO calling a frame impact.

We had some difficulties with certain groups shooting targets on the next stage, which thru off their RO calls.

I was thankful for the opportunity to get involved. I learned watching every group come thru twice in two days. Rather than being a noob shooter exposed to one squad, I was exposed to every squad.  It was good to see some shooters really think outside the box. Great match.

Iíd love to hear from others about their RO experience and tips.

Introduce Yourself / New Guy from Texas
« Last post by Keeter1911 on May 13, 2018, 10:37:13 AM »
New guy here from Texas.   Thanks for allowing me to join.  I am 58 years old and have been shooting rifles, pistols, shotguns, bows, crossbows, spearguns and sling shots most of my life.....uh.....did I miss anything  :). If it propels a projectile, I want to make that projectile hit a specific spot on a regular basis. I own a couple of sub-moa rifles, however, it seems that the older that I get, the more blurry the targets get, and larger the groups get......what I wouldn't give for a new pair of eyes.....anyway, I am hear to learn and maybe I will, at some point, be able to contribute also.  You folks have a great day!
