Thanks for the insights. Good to have a name as well. I am traveling for a couple days but will definitely send him a PM.....and see about the speed screw too. I'll let you know how it goes.

Quote from: Kansaswoodguy on May 07, 2022, 11:13:38 PMI have many gassers consistent 3/4 MOA is achievable are there some guns out there capable of better probably some. Now when I say 3/4 MOA this is 10 five shot group's averaged together not a single bullet called as a flyer BS either. When put to this standard those 1/2 MOA guns seem to evaporate or maybe they just identify as something else that day???Kansas, I think this is possible. I built a 6mm Grendel that I think would give your test a chance to pass. Not sure I can put 10 5-shot groups together with any gun...lol I wanted to see if an AR could be an accurate rifle. I am pretty happy with the result. But it took some effort. It has an HBAR 28" barrel, an expensive light trigger (which is one of the biggest issues with the AR platform), a fixed rear stock and weighs in at around 15 lbs. I love shooting steel with it out to 550 yards....makes it very satisfying. I still like my bolt guns....mainly because they are so much easier to clean.
Quote from: gman47564 on April 21, 2022, 05:20:54 PMFinally a decent afternoon out after i got off work.. sun shining. Light 4 mph breeze.. decided i better shoot some.. the dasher was my choice.. 103 vapor trail setting on reloader 15.5 and a br4 primer to set it off.. shot 3 rounds at a 100 yards to check zero.. made a jagged hole . Then went for a 1 inch nut at 250 yards hanging on a chain.. went 3 for 3 on it.. then to 300 and smacked a 2 inch plate with 3 more.. then to 430.. i fired one at a 2 inch plate there and hit on the right edge.. my second shot i put on my big plate for a aim point.. gave the scope a click to the left and sent 2 more at my aim point.. my group is in this link. 😁Nice shooting Grant. The Dasher (the whole BR family) is such an accurate round and easy to load for. I always thought the 6.5CM was an easy round to load but the Dasher is amazing. The Vapor Trails are great bullets too. Haven't shot any but have shot against them often....they do well.
The dasher is shooting pretty well.. the easy button.. lol

I am assuming that this is a cost issue to add more storage capacity to the site. Storage is generally not that expensive to add. I would be willing to chip in to offset the cost. I think it would make the site better if it was easier to post pictures.
Quote from: HufD63 on April 19, 2022, 10:31:55 PMNicely done Bob!!!Thanks Dave. I agree, the BR family of cartridges are pretty amazing. I am looking at converting one of my other rifles over to a Dasher so I have a LG option. Being able to chamber my own barrels sure opens up some options.
Put the Creedmoor out to pasture LOL seriously it's a hell of a cartridge but it just doesn't agg like a BR based cartridge.
My 6.5x47L improved was a competitive 600 yard gun last season but I'm pretty sure it cost me making the top 14 at the Rendevouz on the 1000 yard targets. I hope I've learned my lesson LOL
Jeff L looks solid as always and ol' uncle Ted is in there as well. Wish I was there instead of plowing snow 14 hours a day. We've had over 36" since last Wednesday.
Quote from: gman47564 on April 19, 2022, 09:17:50 PMWay to go bob.. could the 6mm creedmoor be a recoil issue.. for me after shooting my 6 br and dasher for awhile it makes it a little harder to shoot my other guns well till i get use to that little extra recoil from them..Good question....but I don't think so. It is almost 17 lbs....there really isn't much recoil. Need to go and shoot it again and figure it out.
Quote from: jvw2008 on April 19, 2022, 09:16:06 PMGood shooting Bob! You better park that race car and focus on your shooting talent. 😊Thanks Jerry. I am trying to hold off that date when I'm no longer competitive behind the wheel....but that day is coming. Good to have another hobby to take over when it does.
