Reload g beach is ready, rifle workbench is ready, and my lathe has the bench and power set for it.
Looking forward to see me organization

So I'm new to this side of shooting. Coming from big bore lever guns, all the tacticool stuff and a love of just slinging lead. I'm about to purchase a setup but figured before I spend a chunk of change I'd get some input from people who live this life. I already have my optics picked out " razor hd gen ii ", and a bipod "accuracy fc5qd". The major component here being the sword is what I cant make my mind up on. I've asked at the local shop and of course the point me to the mpa 6.5 which I love but not sure if it's what would be best as it's right at the top of my price spectrum for a rifle. My goal is to work my way up to regularly shooting out to a mile and possibly getting into some competitions. The three rifles I've narrowed down to are the Mpa in 6.5cm which buds"my local shop sells for 2300", a ruger precision in 6.5cm that I will hop up by switching over to a CD barrel and a few other mods, or the Christensen arms mpr in 6.5cm. I dont want to have to upgrade to a new rifle because I outgrow my initial purchase in a years time so out of the 3 mentioned what would you go with and why? Thanks for your time.

Howdy folks, just getting into precision rifle shooting and I've come here to pick your brains to help me make the right desicions on my setup and gear. Sorry in advance for the possibly dumb questions.

So I am brand new and wanting to start shooting long range. I know almost nothing to be honest. Where can I find articles or something to learn a little. If you have advice on what rifle? Caliber? Scope? Any info would be appreciated.... Thanks

If you are still here, there are several sources of information:

Looking to purchase my first precision rifle and optics. My budget is around 3K.  I looking at the Ruger Precision Rifle in 6mm a Bergara or Savage 110 tactical, 10 GRS  or other.  I reload no that not is an issue. My other sport is I shoot IDPA and USPSA.  I would appreciate any suggestions.

Yeah man, with a $3k budget, I think you are on the right track. If you are talking about PRS, You are going go need something capable of 5 shot groups at least under 1 MOA. The closer you are to “bench rest” accuracy the better. If you reload (you need too) all the better.

Vortex scopes seem to be a good bang for the buck. A lot of top competitors use them. I prefer Night Force. US Optics, Leupold, Bender, etc. all excellent.

Can’t go wrong with any of the 6mm chambering. Loving my 6mm Creedmoor. A lot of guys still winning with the 6.5’s too.

I do it for fun but, hard not to get addicted. A bipod, a good barricade bag, and you are ready to go!

Best of luck..

That is a nice rifle to start a precision long range build on. And you are smart to start with a good trigger. All factory triggers suck. A good trigger will improve your shooting/groups more than anything.

I have had probably a dozen Jewell triggers. Several HVR models, and a couple of Bench Rest models, which I still use in my hunting and PRS comp rifles. NONE have ever failed. I have never heard of one failing until I joined this forum.

Bang for the buck, I don’t think you can go wrong with a Jewell or a high end Timney. However, most of the PRS pros seem to have gravitated to the Trigger Tech Diamond. A totally different animal in the way it functions. Take a look at their website or talk to a competent gunsmith.

I have a Trigger Tech Diamond on order. It will replace my modified Jewell HVR (14 oz break) in my Impact Precision PRS 6mm Creedmoor. I will let you know how it preforms in a week or two.

Good shooting to you!

PS: I have one of those VLS Remmingtons. The only thing original on it is the action. It has been trued and blue printed. Great platform!

General Discussion / Re: Applied Balistics App vs. Kestrel help
« Last post by Woollymonster on October 27, 2018, 07:27:58 PM »
Hey all,

Best thing I ever did was to ditch the phone apps and get a Kestrel 5700 Elite with Applied Ballistics. You only need the Kestrel phone app for easily putting in new loads, updating powder temp velocities, or updating your latitude for coriolis effect.

You just need a “shoot to” range from your range finder. The Kestrel 5700 does the rest. Best solutions I have ever gotten from anything. Easiest wind dope. The bullet library is second to none. Faster for PRS competion than anything I have ever used. Very good kit.

I'm looking into purchasing a U.S. Optics SVS 1-6 and the reviews I've seen have been positive.  Anyone else have one and what are your thoughts? Thanks.
