Thanks

The barrels I use are Hugh's cut rifled, 13 1/2 twist. I have shot lots of 14 twist barrels from Rob MacLennan in the past and I shot Rob's 13 1/2 twist barrels in recent years as well. I think I have shot a little better with Rob's and now Hugh's 13 1/2 twist barrels. I can't say 13 1/2 twist is definitively better. I'm a little thick headed so maybe I'm finally learning to shoot this game a bit better.

Hi.  I just got this second hand custom rifle in 6mm PPC . it is in  really good condition. it came with  50 loaded rounds , and nothing else.  I  was told to send 3 spent brass to  Harrell's precision to get a custom die .... but after reading about sending brass to the States, it appears to be illegal..

How can I do this the right way ?

Can someone help me ?

thanks for your time...

Stef, Montreal.

Curious about the twist and grooves? Cut or button?

Visiting Competitors and Delegates,

The Organizing Committee wants to send a reminder that competitor documents can be found here https://rosebudsilhouetteandbenchrestclub.wildapricot.org/ if you haven’t seen them already. We will add to the downloadable documents as the event approaches.
 
Note we specifically had booked the WBC in close proximity to the Calgary Stampede. You may wish to come a few days early to take in what is billed as the Greatest Outdoor Show on earth. It is a very large event comprising a Rodeo, Chuckwagon racing, evening grandstand live entertainment show, and an enormous Midway and Exhibition. Details are here and tickets are on sale for 2019.  https://www.calgarystampede.com/stampede

In regard to the non-airline friendly components required to compete we have a dedicated Vendor Plenty O Patches handling the supply of powder, primers, sand, cleaning supplies, hand tools etc. They will also have a selection of BR specific barrels, triggers, rests etc if you are so inclined. An order form will be developed in the coming months. https://www.plentyopatches.com/

Official Invitation letters are available for the asking. Once you have selected your teams send me the names and we can send an official invitation.

Lastly a reminder to let me know the preliminary numbers of competitors your country will be sending, if you have not already.

Looking forward to seeing you and your team in July, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

With Kind Regards,
Rick Pollock

Thanks, Rick.

 I'm starting to wonder if I'm having a problem with my cell phone provider. Does anyone know if Bill has e-mail?

Bill Mitchell gave me his phone number at the NBRSA Nationals in Holton Michigan several weeks ago. I have been unable to get a call through on the number he gave me.

If anyone could help me get in touch with Bill I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance

To answer your question, Dan - I have 4 rifles, 3 LV and 1 HV. All are Bat DS actions, R/R/R configuration, Bix N' Andy triggers, Scoville stocks, bedded and glued by Dwight Scott. The barrels on my HV and my "go to" LV are HWP barrels with Bukys tuners. For several years now I have shot Bill Mitchell's bullets exclusively and my chambering /gunsmithing is done by Randy Johansen, my friend and shooting partner. The magic lies with the barrels, bullets and the gunsmithing, not the components.
It was a pleasure shooting with all you guys at the Nationals and I am looking forward to seeing you next summer in Calgary.

The government wants to hear a diversity of views on how to reduce violent crime in Canada and whether a BAN ON HANDGUNS AND ASSAULT WEAPONS would be the best way to address the problem. Public consultation is open until November 10.
Police forces are implying that illegal 'illicit' firearms are coming from legal owners through theft or sales, hence the need to ban legal ownership of firearms in Canada.
