  1. I have an 18.5" barrel that shoots 175gr Gold Medal Match faster than a 24" factory proof barrel. Data comprised of a single comparison doesn't make for good generalizations. I'd be interested to hear the data on what your 24" bolt gun runs the same ammo (FGMM 175gr) over the chrono, I'm curious to see if your theory about barrel length and velocity holds water. 2610fps for a 175gr SMK out of a 18.5" 1:10 twist barrel, averaged over a 100-shot string, 70° ambient temperature >10% humidity. I think you're vastly overestimating what your gas losses are, and I'm 100% positive that barrel length won't have enough effect on your velocities to otherwise negate your effectiveness at the ranges you discussed. Don't take my word for it though, build your system and prove your data, or disprove it, either way, we all learn and benefit.
  2. I can think of many more reasons why I would, than why I wouldn't?! I don't understand the question your honor!!!
  3. that's frankly nonsense. simply can't think of a more polite way to put it than that....
  4. PM me your shipping address please Mike.
  5. I don't blame you, it's awfully competitive outside of that closet....
  6. I've lost count of how many I've used through the years, LaRue's mounts are great kit.
  7. That's a great read, and very on-point with regard to communication and trusting your spotter. That lesson concreted itself at the Spring Shoot when a miss looked different from my perspective, yet trusting the spotters call got me on target in a jiffy, rather than adjusting by my data.
  8. Let's hope he reads that before he sees your response to @unforgiven in the other thread...
  9. Rocks and sticks were "cutting edge" in his day, pardon the expression...
  10. Happy Birthday! Mine is tomorrow, evidently all the awesome people are Pisces...
  11. This whole post needs to be a bumper sticker.
