Looks like a F class shooter there.
Brett could put a nice color on that stock and really make
it pop.
 
 I am mostly shooting NBRSA these days but I'm getting ready to try an F Class match.  There is a great local group that I'm getting to know and it would be fun to shoot with them.

Regarding the stock, I'm sure you right.  I have a genetic defect that forces me to do a lot of stuff myself.  I convince myself that I can only learn by doing...even if doesn't turn out quite as good.  My wife is still trying to decide if this is good or bad.

I bought a laminate Deep Creek Tracker from Alex recently, the wood coloring is very similar to Yours Bob. Shawn has a flat bottomed Bat B ordered for it. He doesn't expect to see the action until the first of the year so it will be awhile before I'm shooting it.
 
 I know what you mean.  Actions are taking a long time.  The Defiance took 6 months to arrive.

Have yall considered impact actions? My gunsmith has them in-stock right now. I have 3 of them and love em! I traded away my defiance cert for an impact.

Sounds like you are impressed with them. Did some reading just now - looks like a hot item in the PRS world. 👍

They are machines to extremely tight tolerances. my gunsmith doesnt need my action to spin me new barrels either. The best shooters in the PRS are using them too.

I put this post in the gadgets section, but i thought i would post it here too since it pertains to dasher ballistics.

I was being cheap, and i built this chart because i refused to spend $500 bucks on a Kestrel.

The first page explains how to use the chart. These are the 3 things that I always needed to get from Kestrel owners when i was at a match. The 3 things are nothing more than mathematical equations that i built using excel. The PDF is built so that Pages 3 & 4 can be printed double sided. Page 5 is designed to be printed single sided and folded / ripped up for whatever size target you have and then clipped to your Data board on your gun.

The three things that this file does is:
1) Determine the speed of a moving target
2) Determines the lead to the CENTER of the moving target (little bit of math required if you want to use the leading edge)
3) Based on the target size, gives values for Unknown distances stages.

Calculations are all included. The speed is worked for 2875-2950. There is very little variation due the times that we are talking about.
