X-Ring put on another great F-Class match Saturday down at Bogue Chitto MS range. Had a lot of good shooters show up and a few new guys came down to try it out. Let me tell you it was hot. We set up fans in the target pit to move a little air for the guys working the targets. I have located a few more blowers :shtf2: that we can place at the firing line next month. For those of you that have not tried this, you need to come on down but I warn you if you ever shoot a match you will hooked, the next match will be Saturday July 24.

It was bad hot. Especially the last few strings. It really affected my shooting as well as my load. Especially the load.

Heat and weather aside it is still the highlight of my month.

Yup,

The heat is bad. I remember when I used to shoot the M1A's and M1's at the Southwest Gun Club Range at Amite, LA. It was 103 degrees one day and we shot a 200-300-600 yard match. We did not postpone the match because we were going to Camp Perry the next weekend. Those were the good old days when I was a young guy. 44 years old at that time.

I don't know what the temp was but I went though a six pack of water and two gator aids.

Oh come on neck, I had my .308 all warmed up and ready for you. I thought for sure I was going to get you down there and get you hooked. You would have had your smith put you a 30" Kreiger
on that Glock and laid in the grass with us and slung some lead. :lol4: We did have a good turnout of 22 shooters despite the heat. The bounty for the 200 score is up to $260 and still up for grabs. But until we get out of the mirage months I think it will be safe for a while.

Britt,
I had my IBS Light gun set up switch barrel/bolt for the Atlas and a 6mmDasher. Bobby and I shot the Dashers at PSC on 06/05 and won 1st and 2nd. I am still not finished tweaking the Dasher. I have settled on the BIB 108 BT. It will NOT shoot the Berger 105 VLD Hunting bullet.
I am having another gun set up for F Open. It is a 6mm ODIN (6.5x47L necked down to 6mm, blown forward .038" w/ a 40 degree shoulder and a .266"nk). It will be next season before it is ready. My smith is slow and Krieger is slower.

Yes!
It is named Brady's 6 Dasher. It is named after my son. It was spec'd by Dave Kiff to match the NBRSA world record holding Dasher. it has a .104" Freebore and a .266" NK Although I asked for the .266" NK (PPC Fame), I think the WR Reamer is .268".
I just emailed you the print!

What is the benefit of such a tight neck? I see more 6mm with 271,272 necks than ones that are as tight as yours. Of course they are all for sale so maybe that should tell me something :thinking:
