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.

Yes Sir it does. Thank you.
I am right on the money. I am 0.269 on the chamber and the brass is turned to 0.2675. My rifle shoots fairly well but i have yet to make it shoot like it should as my skill level is still that of a beginner.  

I was curious "where the magic happened"  And this is exactly the kind of reply I was hoping for. I knew I couldn't be the first one to think about this. I just didnt know that there are 40-50 years worth of people ahead of me.  Haha!

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.

Last summer I was at Rosebud shooting one bench over from Hugh Williamson.  I had finished my pitiful string in a howling gale while Hugh just bided his time.  He finally took about 10 seconds to shoot his string, which ended up either being a range record or at least close. 

Anyhow, simultaneous video of the shooter (including the flags) alongside the target for one of these strings would easily beat anything in the rimfire video for sheer excitement!

We shot Score at our regular monthly match.  After what seemed like a solid month of rain, the weather gods treated us to a glorious sunny day.  As always, the change of weather brought chilly fingers and a few small wind challenges. 

Thanks to Art for preparing the targets and backers, to Joe for running the match, to the target runners, to Sue for scoring and to Sonya for data entry.

We're back on March 11, shooting Group as a runup for a busy summer season - Hope to see you there.

And the results...
