PRS 2018

Post by Corjack » Tue Nov 14, 2017 7:23 am

Ordered a Manners PRS 1 stock last week.

Got a new bolt, and have fitted it to an action.
Ordered a few more 6xc brass yesterday.

I will order a 26 inch, 7.5 twist Criterian barrel first of December.

Going to order another KRG chassis after the first if the year.

I got the Manners because I wanted to make sure what works the best for me.

Going to try the 110 Sierra MK in the 6xc, 7.5 twist. If they do not work, I will just shoot 115 DTAKs. They are made by Sierra for David Tubb, and have tested an honest .620 g1 at 1000 yards.

All ready have 500 Peterson sp 6.5 Creedmoor brass. Going to order 300 more, so I got a nice set, should last two barrels, and losses at the matches.

The rough plan is. Matches below 500 feet in elevation, and known windy matches, I will shoot the Creed with 150 Sierras. Should be able to shoot three local matches with the Creed barrel I have, before I pull it. Then depending on how well I like the 6.5 150 MK combo, or the 6xc, I can go ether way.

At this time, I am not planning on going the 6 Dasher route. If the 6xc does not get me what I want out of a 6, I may try the 6x47 Lapua. Longer neck, and a little less case capacity, a bit more efficient especially when it is hot.

Corjack:

Good luck in 2018. To state differently what I said in another post, I would rather do well in a PRS match than win a long range shooting competition. To be certain some skill is required in long range shooting but mortagage the house to buy $120,000 or more of kit and hire the best wind caller and reloader available. PRS matches require good gear as your post illustrates but skill determines who rules the roost.

Very similar to my A3 McMillian stock. Very nice to shoot off these types of stocks.

I'm funny, I still consider the McMillan M40A1 HTG stock the best.
Butit always comes down to one thing alone, choose tge stock that suits you best, comfort and consistency will always win the day.

I have mine set up spot on for me now. It’s extremely comfortable to shoot from.

I would consider the 6mm creedmoor over the 6X47 so you can use the cheaper brass.

That is a real good thought, however I have discovered that trying to save money on cheaper brass, is not a good recipe for success. 6.5 Creedmoor lapua brass actually cost more than 6.5x47 lapua brass, so in my case the it would cost more. Hornady brass is OK, but it does not last very long at the pressures we are running. Plus, I have grown to love small primers , as I seem to enjoy a lot more consistency with them.
