Hunting / Hunting Season 2019-2020 for the Sportacus Crew
Last post by sportacus -
Passed on booking NM pronghorn.  Trying to sell a lake house on Lake Barkley in TN.  Will gamble with my life, but not my checkbook.  Booked for whitetail third week of October 2019 at Mellon Creek Outfitters with wife and step-daughter.  Wildlifers plans to film our hunt for the 2020 season on Sportsman's.  We'll see.  Will do post rut whitetail near Canadian, TX mid December.  Locked with this crew since 2012, TX and KS.  Bring them Community coffee and TN moonshine and they turn me loose.  Will fill in the blanks chasing whitetails in LA and TN.  First puff of a autumn breeze, I become as useless as tit# on a trout except for one endeavor. Garden has peaked. Canning/freezing under control and I am ready to shoot!

Competition / Re: Long Range Alley June 1000yd F-class match

Robin,
Congratulations!  Your reference to Charles made me howl.  I missed Vietnam because I was too young,  but got my chance to scuffle in some later conflicts.  Vietnam vet friends of mine assigned to the 82d in the early 80's referred to him as Mr. Charles.  He was no joke and they respected him.

FF loads in the 6 BRA are crazy accurate. 100 - 600 yards is as far out as I've taken them though but I would bet they are good farther out as well just more come up. If I were shooting local mid range matches I'd be fireforming there.

Cool!

One thing you might want to consider is a fireform barrel. The round count adds up pretty quick!

Yes...good idea.  I bought a shot out 6.5mm barrel for my 6.5 x55 BJAI and had the barrel cut to 20" and chambered to the same headspace as my 'good' barrel.  He chambered all my barrels for a 0.003-4" crush fit at the neck shoulder junction so I did not have to hard jam bullets or false shoulder the neck.  I used a FF barrel for the first 300 cases then I realized that FF loads shot almost as good as the formed cases so I shot my FF brass in local monthly matches.  I have many cleans shot while shooting FF loads so you may find that in the 6 BRA too.  But, I would still get a FF barrel spun up so you can get started with proper load development on fired cases then, if you find the same as I did ( the match loads were only slightly off from the FF loads ) , you can shoot a slight variation of that load to FF cases while shooting small/'fun' matches.

Forgot to add the only reason he sold it was so he could build more rifles on newer platforms to test so he could give valid opinions on other equipment.

Bolt Action Rifles / New to me!

Built and successfully campaigned by the same smith who built my 6 BRA Borden.

This one's a Kelbly Stolle Panda with a Bix & Andy trigger. It's in an original Rutland Laminate LRB stock that's been dipped in a carbon fiber pattern.

Came with 4 barrels:

6 BRA 8 twist
6 BRA 7.5 twist
7-08 AI 8 twist Brux
7-08 AI 8 twist Broughton

Waiting on dies for the 7-08 so I can FF brass.
Might FF some brass for the BRA barrels and work up a Vapor Trail load but I'm kind of more interested in getting the 7-09 AI up and running for a bad conditions / heavy gun.

I plan on shooting 4-6 IBS 600 yard matches in MN late summer after the Deep Creek season is done then shooting the IBS 600 yard Nationals in MN in October.
