Finally put the 100th Round Through

Scope -$450
Bipod - $100
20 220 Grain Rounds - $30

The joy felt from hitting a target at 500 yards - Priceless

Cool. Love the 30-06 round. I have two rifles chambered in 30-06.

I had a 300 Win. Mag. built last year for 1000 + yard target. Works out pretty good, however I'm having a .308 Win./260Rem. switch barrel rifle built now.

The 300 Win Mag target rifle has a 28" long Krieger #9 MTU barrel with a Elite Iron muzzel brake on it. Barrel weighs 5.5 lbs. Also using a McMillan A-5 stock. I'm running a 1 in 11 twist basically for the Berger 210 grain target bullet. That gives me a Sg factor of 1.56 with the Berger. The 190 SMK's run good as well but not quite as tight of grouping as the 210 Bergers. Going to try 1 in 10 twist on next barrel.

Barrel life for 300 Win. Mag. is short. Lasts about +/- 1500 rounds and have second barrel on the way. Thats why I'm having built the switch barrel rifle with two barrels chambered in .308 Win. and .260 Rem. Barrel life should be about 7500 or so rounds with .308 Win. and about 3000 rounds for the 260 Rem. The .308 caliber will be for practice. The 260 Rem. has very similar flight ballistic charistics of 300 Win. Mag. out to 1000 yards.

According to the "old woman" I live with, too much. But I kind of have a sickness / passion for this kind of stuff.

Sickness being defined by me as "obviously I must enjoy the constant nagging and arse chewing from the old woman for spending what I do on toys like these" and passion "cause' I like said toys".

Actually IMO it's all relative to how much $$$ one can afford to fritter away and still comfortbly meet their $$$ obligations.

Very true. It's good that you can afford your passion and still live a nice life.
I think my dream job would a weapons tester or even just a shooting range guy.

Oh don't worry I do pay the price for what I can afford and I just don't mean the old woman nagging all the time. Of course I think she would nag even if she was hung with a gold rope.

Quite some time back in my life I got the bright idea to get my contracting liscense and do business. In California. What was i thinking?!?!???

On average I put in 70+ hours of work a week, weather it be in the office, like now, or out in the field with my boys or a combination of both.

Usually always a high stress situation doing this business thing and I have the ulcers, high blood pressure, and associated ailments to prove it.

So when I work..... I works hard. When play.... I plays hard.


Regardless looks like a very nice rifle you have there and gald to see your playing at that 500 yard distance. Hitting that target at that distance is a rush isn't it?
