Regardless, it is good to see the Canadians that are making the trek to these US matches doing quite well.

Congrats are in order to all of you who made the trip.  Wow and Andy, and Dave from Ontario as well.  A slight journey to Phoenix.


To they great shooting that went on.  Pretty good to see Canucks near the top for the first shoot of the season.

So nice to finally have some wifi to see what happened at the shoot.  Pretty tough when working in Leaf Rapids,  Lynn Lake and South Indian Lake.....LOL

OMG. ...if you are shooting 133 that is Light........

You are positive it is133?

You are talking 133 when you are around 30grs........try starting at 29.1, 29.7, 30.3 grains...okay that is if in a custom action.  If a sleeved 700 start slightly lower and watch for the usual pressure signs.

Lighter loads may work at 100 but will definately get pushed around at 200.....

This is a black synthetic that has been bedded.  It is from what was a Rem 700 Youth in .243. 

I have shot the barrel out and have a project rifle in mind.  The stock is not needed now.  The only kicker is it will likely need a new Limbsaver recoil pad.  It is started  to melt/disintegrate.  Not sure why but have been reading about that issue lately.

Asking 60.00 FIRM plus shipping.  Stock looks good.  Email for pics.

Call or Text ONLY to 1-204-570-1956.

13  News / Club Events / Lake of the Woods Gun Club 200M Score on: August 29, 2017, 06:26:23 AM
Lake of the Woods Gun Club Rifle Division Holds 200 Meter Benchrest for Score Match      August 27th, 2017

The last match of the year was attended by 16 shooters. The early morning was cool and gloomy. By late morning the sun came out warming temperatures to almost comfortable in a T shirt. Wind conditions were moderate but switchy out of the north. Competition was thrilling and exciting with the lead changing hands with each target shot. Hunter Class winner Brian Prouty started strong and ended strong. Ken Chambers was consistent.
In Varmint Hunter Class, the rivalry continued between Gavin Carlson and Jack siblings. This time it was Donovan’s turn to grin.
In Varmint for Score/Open Class Calvin Yanchycki from Brandon finally beat the home boys in Kenora winning his first score match. His wind condition held long enough to machine gun 50 points on his last target to clinch the win. Second place Matt Cyr had not fired a centerfire shot since the 200 Meter event in August 2016. “Just like riding a bicycle” he said. Phil was hoarding his Nationals winning barrel and instead used a shot out barrel only suitable for a tomato stake to secure 4th place. Fun was had by all.   

Hunter Class
1st Brian Prouty 218
2nd Ken Chambers 213 – 1X
3rd Spencer King 95

Varmint Hunter Class
1st Donovan Jack 231 – 1X
2nd Gavin Carlson 229 – 1X
3rd Brian Prouty 220 – 1X

Varmint for Score/Open Class
1st Calvin Yanchycki 247 – 4X
2nd Matt Cyr 246 – 3X
3rd Dwayne Cyr 245 – 5X

Many thanks to all competitors who came out to support the Rifle Division. Some travelled considerable distances. Thanks to Rod and Donovan Jack for the barbeque. Thanks to Target Crew Phil and Donovan, to Official Scorer Al Carlson, to the 3 Referees and thanks to RSO Dave Neilan for cracking the whip and keeping the relays moving. Now the plotting and scheming begins, new barrels, different powder, bullets, new rear sand bag, find time to practice and figure out how to do better next time.

I apoplogize in advance if I have spelled your name incorrectly.

What I will say is it was one of the nicest days I have ever shot a match in Kenora.  It was hot out but I love the heat.  The venue there is one of my favorites next to Selkirk and St.Louis.  Dwayne (better known as the Range Slave) puts a lot of time and effort into the facility to keep it up.  That is along with whatever volunteers he can muster up on a given day.

The matches there may be club matches but the turnouts have been consistent be it for the rimfire or centerfire score matches.  The equipment and the level of competition is constantly getting better.  This is in part to a few not to distant talented men who share there expertise and talents around lathes and milling machines.

Finally Ron P, congrats again, you did it.  Not sure how much practice you have been doing but you shot slow and steady and never took any chances.  That reversal is and can be so detrimental to ones score.

Dwayne (Colleen), thanks for putting on another great shoot and opening your house to me.  Hope to be back for the season finale at the end of the month.

17  News / Club Events / Lake of the Woods Gun Club Rimfire Score July 2017 on: August 01, 2017, 12:28:09 PM

Eighteen shooters attended, some traveled considerable distances. It was a Hot day reaching 30 degrees with no wind in the morning and mild readable breezes in afternoon. The lack of wind produced some very high scores in all classes.

In Semi Auto Class, Ron McDaniel’s 2014 record fell to Ken Chambers who raised the range record by 6 points. In Unlimited Class Ron Pettigrew shot patiently and defensively, taking no chances, using all the time allowed to shoot clean and tie the existing range record set by Phil Nick in 2012. Sporter Class had the potential to reset the range record but luck and other factors intervened.

Congratulations to the winners. It was interesting to watch the tight five-way horse races unfold and the animated reactions to dropped shots from dirty barrels, inconsistent ammo and mysterious unexplained invisible anomalies.

Semi Auto Class
1st Ken Chambers 735 – 18X * New Range Record
2nd Al Cardinal 721 – 13X
3rd Brian Prouty 688 – 15X

Sporter Class
1st Matt Cyr 740 – 23X
2nd Brian Prouty 738 – 25X
3rd Katelyn Jack 738 – 18X

Unlimited Class
1st Ron Pettigrew 750 – 41X
2nd Rod Jack 749 – 40X
3rd Grant Schick 749 – 30X

Special thanks to the Rod Jack family for putting on a great barbeque and feeding us lunch. Thanks to the volunteers who ran targets, helped score, acted as line safety officers and referees. And thanks to the shooters in all classes for the quality of competition they bring to our matches.

I want to also thank the folks that traveled from a far.  BC, AB, MB and ON were represented.  Greg Mowatt (sp) from Grand Forks, BC and Rob Maclennan from southern ON.  Those folks made one heck of a trip to be with us in Selkirk.  Thank you for thinking of Selkirk.

To Grant Schick for updates to the backer system.  GREAT job. To those that also assisted Grant in setting up the backer.  Thanks.

Chelsea Schick for running the targets and scoring.  Must be tough being a new mom and spending the day with a bunch of old guys.  Thank you.

I felt things ran perfectly...... was the smoothest shoot that I have ever been a part of in Selkirk.

Despite my wanting to step away from this sport for a while I know I have met a lot of great people along the way who helped me get into the game or were just there to BS after the day was done.  Hope to see you soon.

Yes congratulations Phil.  Slow and steady wins the race.  He is someone who always sneaks up on you at 200. 

It was a race right until the end.  I thought Rick had it sewn up.



Will post some pictures this evening when back home.
