What rifle are you shooting this weekend?

Post by Cal-ApeR » 15 Mar 2019, 9:53 pm

I was planning on a trip out tomorrow but the weather is bloody awful. Might hit the range if things clear.

22lr for me. What are you guys using this weekend?

Unfortunately none. Next weekend, however, I am going out foxing again. I will take my Savage model 25 in .204. I will also take my Tikka .243 to give it a gallop.

The weather doesn’t look real flash, I might get to test some loads from my 22 hornet and 222.

My plan was to do some 6.5x55mm load development, but it's gale force out there today. Might have a play with the .22LR at longer ranges to get some wind-reading practice in though.

Bladeracer, might follow your lead and start loading up for my 30-06 I'm yet to take delivery of.

I wouldn’t do this - I got caught out big time. Loaded 50 cartridges in expectation of receiving my sauer, made cartridges based on my previous 06 and they wouldn’t fit the new gun.

260 Remington - testing some 140gn loads with AR2209...but took my old man with me and hes got carried away dropping 3-4 inch saplings and giggling like a school girl. So my test data is somewhat corrupt due to an over enthusiastic Newbie shooter - but I don’t care, the laughter was worth every grain of wasted powder.

Probably out cutting firewood tomorrow and as usual, I will throw a rifle in just in case I feel like going walkabouts for a pig.

No shooting for me... just for a new scope so putting it on but that resulted in scope changes to all my guns.

Which just gives me extra incentive to go shooting next weekend.

Yeah, I’ve bought a new and better scope for one rifle, and ended up doing a shuffle on others :lol:
