    F T/R Competition New F-Class Division

    Shooting with a coat and sling is a finer skill set. But once you have learn the position, you are solid as a rock. At least everybody is on the same playing field in that. I shot this one year. Although I wasn't great at it but wanted to learn. I respect the guys who do this. Learned some from...

    F T/R Competition New F-Class Division

    Here is the thought. Some clubs will not allow suppressors or brakes but do allow this. The basic topic is If you shoot a 6mm 6.5 7mm off bipods you are in the open class. When competeing it would be hard to beat some with a similar rig. It can be done. But like I said You will need to bring...

    F T/R Competition New F-Class Division

    I think it looks great. If you take a AI rifle and take off the skins. You will have a weird looking rifle also. The point I was making is that some not all don't even look through their scope when pulling the trigger. I think their is need for a extra class but don't know if it will happen...

    I shot against that. I took 2nd place and he took third. I had to be on my A game. The thought is that least chances of errors if shooting this way. That is why I went to FTR.

    F T/R Competition New F-Class Division

    There is nothing perfect but this isn't either. When left to discussion then ideas will come. From shooting matches for few years. I think there is a need for this class. I tried to post a video but can't from photo bucket. This would show the open class. It is a lot like bench rest. Maybe not...

    F T/R Competition New F-Class Division

    I would agree to some point. I think the point is that not everybody has a bench rest rifle or a FTR rifle. There would be enough shooters for the division and would open up more shooting. I shot against 7mms and won some and lost some. Even shooting off of bipods. My odds isn't as good as...

    F T/R Competition New F-Class Division

    I think the example to use would be. If shooting a 6.5 cal. off of bipods. You are shooting against the open class. There is a lot of shooters who don't want a bench rifle on the ground. They have rifles they use. Last year I went to shooting the FTR class because of this. The open class is a...

    F T/R Competition F Class in NE?

    Alliance Rifle Club has great 1000 yard matches. They are a great group out there. Planning on making some trips up there to shoot this year. If I was in the middle of both I would go to Alliance before ENGC. Not very many clubs have 1000 yards to shoot. They start on the 800 yard line shoot...

    Rifle Scopes Nightforce beast vs ??? March? Uso?

    I'am sure the Leupold is a great scope. All these scopes are getting in the higher price range. Once You are at the Top why buy a chevy Loaded for the same money as a Mercedes. Not saying these scopes are not good. I own the other scopes to. The Beast is an expensive scope. Maybe have some cool...

    Rifle Scopes Nightforce beast vs ??? March? Uso?

    I have owned March, Nightforce, USO, Leupold, and currently running S&Bs. Hands down the S&Bs are the best. Once you get into the price range of the other scopes. I would go with a S&B any day. If you have owned them. Then you will know the features on the S&Bs are above the others. The others...

    Norma's 130's 6.5

    I have look at these for years. I have 500 ordered and got a confirmation that says out of stock. I will wait for them. I have enough Lapua's to shoot. I have one rifle I would like to try these in.

    Norma's 130's 6.5

    Does anybody shoot these? I have some on order. I shoot Lapua's now and have great luck with them. Thought I might try these for a change. If you shoot or have shot Norma's. Did you like them?
