New to PRS and would like to visit range near me.  The range at West Plains, Mo is within driving range.  But have not been able to get address of range for visit.
Can anyone provide address of PRS match range in West Plains, Mo?
Thanks

Jim do you have any pictures illustrating how you use your lathe with the case mouth and flash hole tools? What steadies and squares the case to the tool?

Thanks.

Second on the Timney Calvin Elite. Bought the standard trigger bow and haven't looked back. Turned me into a 700 guy for life.

Bolt Guns / Re: 6.5 CREEDMOOR vs 308
« Last post by trentcwwilson on August 12, 2018, 06:46:10 PM »
308, Lapua brass, 185gr Berger OTM/Juggernaut, Federal Gold Metal LR primer, 44.6gr Varget that shoots .140" @100yds Velocity was 2780fps

6.5 Creedmoor, Starline brass(wanted to see if it was any good), 150gr Sierra Matchking, CCI LR primer, 47gr Reloder 19 that shoots .110" @100yds. Velocity was 2925fps.

These ballistics charts should let you know why. The 308 is still good, but you won't beat someone pushing the limits of the 6.5 Creedmoor. I was against it for years. Picked one up this year around May for shop testing on our brakes. When I started loading it, I sold all my 308s except for my Palma rifles.

Bolt Guns / Re: Need advise on first precision rifle purchase
« Last post by trentcwwilson on August 12, 2018, 06:38:04 PM »
I bought a Remington 700 ADL Tactical in 6.5 Creedmoor for $503.xx at Dick's, topped it with a Vortex Golden Eagle ($1300), added a Harris 6-9" bipod(stolen from another rifle), Timney Calvin Elite trigger($150 on sale), and an SPT HuDu brake($165). Only thing I did was put the barreled action in a barrel vise and tighten the atrocious headspace Remington sends their rifles out with and lap the barrel. I've shot 150gr Sierra Matchkings at 2925fps and have yet to look back. All in, I've got more I'm the scope than the rifle. You don't need to spend massive bucks on a rifle to compete with guys spending double, or more, what you did.

Bolt Guns / 6.5 Creedmoor Handloading
« Last post by trentcwwilson on August 12, 2018, 06:29:31 PM »
So, I've found a good varmint load in the 85gr Sierra Varminter and a hefty load of Reloder 15 to the tune of almost 3700fps. My issue is with the new 150gr Sierra Matchking. I'm getting good velocity, but I'm wanting more. With a hefty load of Reloder 19, I've reached 2950fps. Sierra states in their most recent manual that Superformance is 50fps faster on a max load. I'm .6gr over max with Reloder 19 and loaded the Superformance up to the same .6gr over max to 2875-2900fps with a 5.0xx SD and an ES of 9fps, so it's a more consistent load at distance. Pressure signs aren't to the same level as with Reloder 19. So, should I keep pushing the powder level? I was told by techs at Berger and Sierra that using a magnum primer with a ball powder helps ignition and, in some cases, increases velocity. Has anyone experienced that? If I should stick to where I am load wise, should I switch to a benchrest primer to see if I can bring SD and ES down even lower?
