Introduce Yourself / New from Cedar Rapids, IA
« Last post by BrianC71162 on March 22, 2018, 07:53:11 PM »
Hello, I will be getting my first precision rifle this weekend. It is a Alexander Arms 6.5 Grendel and I will be mounting a Night Force NXS scope on it soon. Looking forward to shooting and getting involved with this sport. I'm completely new so I will have lots of questions. Look forward to meeting with some of you. Brian
So I talked to a very very helpful rep from Nosler (Mike) who answered my question! He explained to me that a lot of 6.5 creedmoor guys using these bullets will actually look for a good "jump" and 60 thousands is probably what I am looking for so my 2.883 measurement fits with what they know. The test the bullets at 2.805 so my using 2.883-0.60 = 2.823 is only 20 thousands off the generic number they give. I am really glad I contacted them - great customer service! Thanks Mike.
Reloading / RPR 6.5 Creedmoor reloading newbi - Question about OACL ?????
« Last post by GTB6.5CREEDMOOR on March 21, 2018, 11:05:33 AM »
Hello everyone, I am a newbi reloader, I have been reloading for about a year sticking strictly to stats from the books. I have had good success with the gun and the reloads. I decided I finally had to start measuring OACL using a OAL gauge and modified case. My set up is:

Ruger Precision 6.5 creedmoor

I measured with the following and got very similar number to the book:

Hornady Brass
Hornady V-Max 95g bullet
going to use RL15 at 39gr to start
measure with gauge and modified case (6x average) total -2.746" so used 2.716" as my COAL to start

from Hornady Handbook the tested with 2.710" SO MY NUMBER THERE WAS VERY SIMILAR AND I LEARNED TO USE THE GUAGE ETC. I also use a comparator tool but those numbers are not so relevant for this discussion.

Then I measured for Nosler Custom Competition HPBT 140g and while the book says they tested with 2.775" and the SAAMI max is 2.825" I keep measuring 2.883" over and over at the rifling. Does anyone know what is going on? I don't think I am measuring wrong - that is why I gave the data above regarding the Hornady bullets?
Thanks for any help or explanation.

Get behind the rifle properly, and load your bipod.
General Discussion / Controlling Magnum Rifle Jump
« Last post by 1mileshot on March 21, 2018, 12:00:41 AM »
Trying to get some pointers and or tips for how I can better control the jump of my 7mm Rem Mag.  I've shot over 500 rounds through this rifle.  Itís sub moa. I do my own reloading. Problem is, I can't track the bullet if I constantly have to reacquire my target after every shot. I had a very good muzzle brake, and am now using a Suppressor. Still jumps.  Iíve tried holding down on the scope, but really need a third hand for that.  I almost always shoot from a prone position (or sitting when I am the Range.). If anyone has any ideas.......
Thanks in advance

Pointed a couple of guys that were in a PRS beginners clinic I did this weekend towards this.  I use it or some variation of it a lot.
I have one slot available for this match as it falls on my daughters graduation day.  $50

Not really anyone making one for M-Lok since they would have to license it for a bag rider that they would maybe sell 50 a year. You're best bet is to get an M-lok to Picatinny adapter, then get a bagrider that fits picatinny; JP Enterprises, Sinclair, etc. all make good riders.
