Normal to see some carbon on the neck. Not a lot though. Less than 50% coverage. Shouldn’t see any on the shoulder. What cartridge and load are you using?

Organized benchrest has been around since just after WWII. The level of experimentation we are talking about is still ongoing today the same as it has for decades. Most of the experimentation is at the minutia level, but still going on.

Thanks Mark. Always appreciate your updates. We have assembled a veritable rogues gallery to invade BC in May and in August.

Mr J,

hard to quantify what works, a bit easier to say what doesn't work. In short range BR shooters have been experimenting with fitted/stepped necks (more or less zero clearance) up through about .004 - .005 total clearance. This has been going on for about 40-50 years. Experience has proven that .002" - .0025" total clearance is where the magic happens. Anything less will require fanatical attention to details and may prove quirky after just a few firings as brass migrates around a bit. Anything over about .004" and accuracy suffers.

While you are pondering this it is important to figure out what the actual chamber neck diameter is. It won't necessarily be what is printed on the reamer. You can use pin gauges, bore gauge to figure neck diameter. Hope this helps.

BR 101 Invitation

Welcome to the Top Fuel or F1 of the shooting world.

For the 7th year, The Rosebud Silhouette & Benchrest Club is pleased to announce it will hold a Benchrest 101 Clinic on May 12, 2018 at the club. This clinic provides an introduction to competitive Benchrest shooting. The focus will be on short range (100-200 yd) group shooting using center fire BR rifles.

This clinic will appeal to the accuracy enthusiast who is serious about entering the world of competitive BR shooting. The Clinic will provide the first step of many steps in learning to shoot BR at a national and international level. The clinic is available to shooters who have not taken the clinic in previous years. You do not have to be a Rosebud member to attend.

The Clinic takes the better part of a full day, so you will need to plan accordingly. We will start at around 9:00 AM with part of the morning taken up in the clubhouse discussing the basics of Benchrest shooting, such as suitable cartridges, rifles, reloading, the match format, among many other topics. We will also use the morning to set up wind flags and bench rest equipment such as front rest and rear bags.

There will be a 30 minute lunch break and then in the afternoon there will be informal shooting instruction on the rifle range. Students will compete using state of the art BR rifles and rests, wind flags, and all other associated equipment. This will also be a good time to see what BR reloading at the range is all about, and to see what BR bore cleaning is all about.

For the informal shoot the rifles will be provided, along with all the other equipment necessary to shoot a match. A coach will be assigned to each student. There is no need to bring a rifle or sand bags etc., the coaches will provide that. Note the coaches are current and past members of the club who shoot at the Regional, National and World level. These folks have been there, done that and got the T-shirt so to speak.

All you need to do is bring your hearing protection, eye protection, lunch and refreshments. We expect to be done at about 4:00 PM.

Depending on availability of spare rifles, coaches etc we will likely limit this to about 12 shooters. I would recommend people sign up early.

To register please contact me at the e-mail below. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
