  1. I used to. Now I bring a trailer.
  2. That mile is just an educated guess, crap shoot. Especially in those conditions we were shooting in. Sometimes, things work out and sometimes they don't. I definitely hit it fewer times this trip than I ever have. That's just the way it goes sometimes. I was really stoked for @Magwa to connect with his 6.5-284. Super cool! @sketch I really appreciate you bringing all that cool hardware to share. So very cool to have the opportunity to send those monsters down range. I'm not curious anymore about what a 50 will do. It kills on one end and maims on the other!
  3. Pretty sure that means you're only half as good now. You earn the award for the most unimproved shooter, I suppose? But I'm pretty sure I remember you sitting down and launching 15 or so rounds through something with no contact prior to your hero moments. You got enough practice at some point to get warmed up. As tricky as the wind was, there was a ton of luck on a lot of those impacts. But like I always say, I'd rather be lucky than good... You should go buy a lottery ticket.

  5. @Armed Eye Doc Another super cool gift, Doc! And you're right. This one only cost me a tank of gas. Lol. Great as always to see you and Susan. Thanks for keeping us fed and happy.
  6. Awesome time! Absolutely wonderful to meet all you first timers to the SDTF, and always great to see some familiar faces again. Now you know what you're missing every time you don't come! And that's what I enjoy so much about this group as a whole. No matter what the combination of people we collect, there's nothing but good times with great people. I feel fortunate to be a part of this group, so to all of you that I've met, thanks for coming and hanging out with us. But now I need a vacation from my vacation. LOL. P.S. The cheesecake alone is worth the return trip, if for nothing else. Jus sayin... 🍰
  7. Sorry to disappoint ya, buddy! I didn't have the time for load development and verification and learning the BDC on that rifle that I thought I would to make that 16" competitive. Plus, we have the 2 day match coming up. I thought it would be best to continue to learn and reaffirm the gun I've been using. I plan on doing as well as I can at the October match, and hopefully bringing home some hardware. After the October match I'll start playing around with different stuff.
  8. I've already checked my dope. I can dial 2k yds without hold overs. Now we just need to find the location... From camp, if possible.
  9. Yep. All of this. By 0900 there wasn't a dry shirt to be seen! But the ability to see bullet trace was pretty epic!
  10. Looks like I'm a little late to this party. Y'all started on the Tequila without me! Or the Kool Aid. Either way, let's try to get this ship back on track. @ebbiv Plain and simple, you're doing it wrong. I'm sure you've had success with your own rigs, and possibly stumbled upon some fixes for your buddies, but allow me to help you out a bit. Here on this forum, we have helped dozens upon dozens of members like @rogu 777 get their rigs running correctly, with as little frustration as possible and using the correct combination of known correct parts and processes. You've stumbled upon the authority on this particular topic within these pages. That's why people come to us and we love to help them. It requires the knowledge and experience of things that your copy and paste doesn't offer. That info is fine, but if you're new to this AR10 platform, not all of that is going to make sense. Ya gotta remember, not everyone here is as smart as you are. However, over time we have developed a solid procedure and to my knowledge, it's 100% successful in finding and fixing issues fellas are experiencing with their AR10 platform. It happens all the time. While you may have read everything on the topic and apparently have a lifetime of experience, you're not very good at playing nice or teaching. Frankly, you come across as a know it all dik-head. Can't tell you nuthin. We are here with a refined system for diagnosis and fix, because this is what we do. I don't know you and it's obvious you don't know us very well, but we have a proven track record. You Sir, do not. Not here, anyway. You come in throwing your opinion around as fact, when most of it is actually somewhat unnecessary. But that's MY opinion and it's worth what you paid for it. We are here to teach, to learn, be nice to each other and collectively enjoy and promote this chosen hobby. Your intentions may be good, but no one wants to learn from you the way that you've presented your information. You're ruffling feathers and then you get your panties all twisted up when you're corrected. I can only assume that this has been a life long recurring issue for you the way you've responded and conducted yourself here. You got checked because you're hanging your hat on stuff that doesn't necessarily need to be addressed yet and also things that we know to be factually incorrect. On top of that, you're trying to tell @98Z5V, one of the most knowledgeable persons on this exact topic, that you're right and he's wrong. No need for that. You've had some ideas, but again, we can fix those issues after addressing known issues first due to the original posters concerns. Some of your stated issues correct themselves when we start with the stuff that we know to be a problem with this platform, or components that he's starting with. @rogu 777 Let's get back to your rig and get you on the right track as quickly as possible. Sorry for all this. Joys of dealing with the general public. @ebbiv You're welcome to add to the conversation, but I might advise you to just sit back, observe and maybe, just maybe you'll learn something too. Old dogs CAN learn new tricks. If you have something tangible to add to the conversation, that's welcome. But quit being a know-it-all look how big my dik is about it. Or take your ball and go home. That's fine, too.
  11. I'd rather be lucky than good any day of the week.
  12. @sketch We don't have to shovel sunshine!
