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...

After watching the shots hit the paper, I dont feel so bad anymore!! Hahaha!!

What an amazing facility!  We have gravel and more gravel and then theres more gravel.

really like that aluminum Anshutz!!  and those rests!  wow!

Nice vid Rick.  Great idea to do something for Canada too. Not sure where one begins. There are so many venues here that only shooters are aware of.
What I wonder about... how do you change someones mind that has no interest in firearms and have them realize how much fun it can be...?  I'd say it 'relaxing' too but up until now I was thinking there was something wrong with my abilities! LoL! That should change having watched this vid!

without having gone exploring is there actually an organization in Canada that is dedicated to rimfire BR? Im rather new to the sport. Ive shot forever and a day but never took it past a dirt mound out in the back woods. I must say I have had some great experiences with the people Ive met and the days out shooting. The Irish fellow is right on the mark.

My bad, Thanks for reiterating information already posted. I did see that post I guess I should have been more concise in my description of what I am going off about.

Lets say you have a cartridge that is"perfectly sized" 0.002 neck & 0.002 shoulder. It shoots lights out. Why mess with a good thing right?  When you discharge the round the neck expands and allows the projectile to leave the chamber with little interference.  Im splitting hairs..

If you have a cartridge with lets say the bare minimum of neck clearance.. 0.268 in a 0.269 chamber... wouldnt this be enough to allow free exit of the projectile as well as keep the brass from being over worked thus prolonging its life and possibly increasing accuracy? Or is that 0.0015 -0.002 what has been shown or proven and is known to work?  Or am I right out to lunch as the cartridge then becomes too difficult to manipulate? Some one out there must have tried this at some point?   Sorry if this is a ridiculous question. Im just curious and searching for 2nd opinions.
