Re: IBS Heavy Gun 1000yd New world Record

I wonder if he doesn't also have it set up as a tension tube for the barrel. I've known a few others that have used that configuration with excellent results. His rest also provides some serious precision tracking of that gun during recoil and return to battery.

Fascinating engineering he put into that design.

I was thinking about water cooled stuff. You could pressurize the water tube. Also, water will absorb tons more energy (heat) before it changes temperature (compared to air).

Re: IBS Heavy Gun 1000yd New world Record

Do you think he will see any increased barrel life with the extra cooling?

At that same match an eight year old boy shot a 2.8??" five shot group with a 6mmDasher. It was his first ever five shot group on paper at 1000 yards.

I <span style="font-style: italic"><span style="font-weight: bold">would</span></span> want one, but I don't like the finish...

Jokes aside, impressive weapon, incredible shooting!

Impressive purpose-built machine, for sure.

I can't honestly describe it as a "rifle" or "weapon".

If you think about it, it's like hitting a cantalope at over a mile! And consistently at that.
