My question was prompted by a misfire in the field with a single shot bolt action .308 target rifle using match grade factory ammo. It was a surprise and a bit unnerving. After ejecting the round I...

Misfire procedure?

I did a forum search for this subject, and couldn't find a complete procedure for dealing with a misfire (firing pin hits the primer with no result). Specifically, how long to wait before ejecting,...

Target sizes?

Pardon the basic question. I've read the NRA rule book regarding target sizes for FT/R class and it doesn't say whether the sizes are radius or diameter. I assume diameter. For instance, 500 yd...

.308 is correct. Your two choices seem to be accepted by all I've talked to. There is, however, a little buzz about the recently announced Hornady Superformance 178 gr. Match. Sounds good, but...

Factory ammo for F Class

Here's another shot at answering this question. This is not a referendum on the value of reloading. I concede the value of that. Let's say you show up at a 1K competition and forgot your ammo. Choose...

Thanks. I'll give it a try. It seems to me that this shooting variable is somewhat overlooked. Highly experienced shooters like you have an advantage, but less experienced or intuitive shooters could...

Thanks. What I'm really looking for is a ballistic calculation which will accept different speeds and directions of the wind at selected yardages downrange. Either a software solution, or a rule of...

Average wind calculation?

Ballistics calculators have inputs for one wind speed and direction. Is there a method to average wind speeds and directions, as observed at different positions downrange, perhaps giving more weight...

Thanks. I read a good routine on the Shilen website FAQ's. I figure they must know what they're doing. If I read it right it sounds something like this:

Assuming 20 rounds fired through the...

Angled or straight viewfinder on spotting scope?

Curious about the style most commonly used in prone and bench rest. Gotta buy one or the other. I'm assuming that straight through optics is the norm for prone use.

Thanks. It is a 308. I'm thinking a 300 zero with the 20 moa base would be a good place to start. Wish there was a longer range less than a three hour drive to easily test out my theories.
