600 Yard F Class

Post by Corjack »

I have about 250 rounds through my second 6x47 rifle. It is shooting well. PRS season is over until late February, so I am going to shoot a local F Class match for practice , and getting my barrel just a tad more seasoned. I do not have very high expectations, but it will be better than setting at home. If I like it, I have a 6.5 Creedmoor Hawk Hill barrel that things 140 Berger hybrids are the best thing since Swienhoxen. I will compete with it and save the 6x47 barrel for PRS type stuff.

Pretty windy today, but real happy with my first F class shoot. First run I shot a 193-7x, second was a 193-9x. Totale 386-16x. Got 5th or 6th out of about ten shooters in the varmint/tactical class. When they email me the scores I can analyze it a bit better. It had trophys for the first three places. The gentleman that got third was a 390 with only about 10x . only the first place shooter shot more Xs than I did. Things actually went real well first fifteen shots of both strings. Not sure if it was barrel heat, as I had a heavy Palma , and most everyone else had truck axle taper. But last five shots tended to string up and down. One guy I knew said it could have been mirage off my barrel. I will make a mirage shade thingy before the next match. Also you had 25 minutes the first stage to get your shots off, then 22 minutes the second. I shot them in about half that. I may get a timer and try and use at least 75 to 85 % of the time, so barrel does not get so hot. Never shot anything less than a 9.

Well done. Are you shooting on the same targets that they use in the High Power Rifle championships?

I think so. 3 inch x ring, 6 inch 10 ring 12 inch 9 ring. Thing is huge. Hard to pick a small spot to hit.

Bloody hell that's a small target. From memory the 600 yard target at Camp Perry for the High Power Match was; X=6", 10=12", 9=18"....and anything past that didn't really matter :lol: :lol: I could be wrong though ....it was a long time ago. Funny how you call the target "huge" :lol: :lol: ..My memories are of a tiny dot sitting on the front sight of the M14.

But anyway..well done that's excellent shooting.

Regards
Rod
