Thought I would bump this thread in case some haven't seen it.  Thanks for putting this together Tory, it's an easy way for a lot of people to make a contribution.

All good information, thanks for taking the time.

I haven't placed an order for springs yet, but I did just receive my Kleindorst spring removal tool, headed in the right direction.

I would be interested in buying one or two of these when they become available.

Off Topic / Camping while attending shoots?
« on: January 24, 2023, 12:22:32 PM »
I'm hoping to attend an event or two this year, most likely just at the Rosebud range as that is closest to me. My understanding is that it's possible to camp there with a trailer.

I'm wondering:

- how many people actually do?

-is there a fire pit?

We are planning camping trips for the coming season and I'm trying to figure out what 'the experience' of camping at the range is. If there's no one else there it might make for 3 or 4 lonely nights. For example, we are hoping to book a week in Kananaskis July 5-12, the Stampede Shootout starts on the 13th with the BR201 clinic which I would like to attend- that means the day of the 12th would mean getting up and breaking camp early, drive back to Lethbridge (3.5 hours), drop the wife off, dump and fill the trailer, then drive back up to Rosebud to be ready for the next morning. Long day, and if the camping isn't great (other people, beer at the fire..) ditching the trailer and going to a hotel would make things easier.

Also facing a similar situation in September possibly.

I'd appreciate any thoughts.

Kelly. I sent you a post outling my many errors in setup. A mentor can really help in this regard.

I would appreciate any tips, thank you. Not sure if you sent it already? Nothing has come through.

Any concerns with dry fire practice with a 2oz. Jewel trigger?

To expand on my question, being new to BR I would like to spend time during the winter practicing getting the bags set up properly, dry fire, return the gun to position, reload...etc.

With the Jewel trigger being as sensitive as it is, some hands on practice with it would likely be beneficial as well, as long as it's ok to dry fire. With it being so 'delicate', is there an issue with practicing/dry firing with it?

Anywhere in Canada that I could get a new firing pin spring for a Stolle 6PPC action?

If not, I don't assume there would be any issue ordering direct from Kelblys?

From what I've read this is an item that should be changed out periodically, might order a few and keep some on hand - change yearly perhaps.


Looks like very promising results. You must be happy, congratulations!

Many thanks to those who put their name forward and make the effort, and congratulations to those at the top of the list. The amount of dedication required to make this happen is not lost, even on me a new member to this forum.

Some great shooting at the Nationals this week, I was following the progress on a couple other forums - pretty quiet around here most of the time!

Well done everyone, I could only hope to be at this level someday.

Off Topic / Cases for front rest and accessories
« on: October 08, 2022, 09:31:21 PM »
While attempting to create some type of order in my garage today I found a set of plastic ammo boxes I had purchased at Princess Auto a couple years ago. Looking at the size I was immediately hopeful one would work for my JJ Lo front rest, and one for the rear rest and some odds and ends.

The front rest is a perfect fit other than the lid on the box was 1/2" low. I was able to correct that by heating the lid with a heat gun and closing the lid with a spacer, this bent the lid enough to create about 1/4" gap on the top. A few pieces of foam glued to the corners where the feet of the rest are and it is perfect.

The second box I fitted some new foam in (also from PA), cut a recess for my rear bag, it also holds a couple boxes of ammo, a metal ammo stand, and the base for the front rest. Items in this case may change, but it's a good start.

I think I paid $30 for these boxes, they also com with 3 smaller ammo cans inside each one (set of 4) - pretty hard to beat for the price. Before this I had the front and rear rests in a large Rubbermaid type box, it was quite heavy and awkward.

Nice little project for a Saturday afternoon, and a good way to distract myself from a few chores that are calling my name!

The expression always seems to be happy wife happy life.....

What about the man being happy as well?


I definitely agree! But to be fair to her, it's a bit of a story but I had saved up and tried to buy this gun in January, the deal didn't work/timing wasn't right so I ended up buying a less expensive gun and a second motorcycle and all new riding gear (offroad). Imagine my surprise when the now ready seller approached me last week and offered to sell! I've done pretty good this year, no doubt.

welcome to the pit!  think we met at leffingwell.  while your dreaming up excuses for your shooting addiction; carefully record all of them.  over time you will never have enough........

One of your final pieces of advice to me was that my next purchase should be good glass, I took that to heart and made it happen - it just happens to have a nice rifle attached to it as well!

Hi Kelly, welcome to the slippery slope. You are in good hands with the guys in Lethbridge. It is not too late to bring you and the rifle to Rosebud tomorrow and Sunday! We will typically run the schools in May, but in the meantime ask away!


Thanks Rick. I had thoughts of trying to get there for the weekend, however I've been tasked with cooking a 15lb pork shoulder for a big family dinner on Sunday. 20 hour cook will have me tied up for 2 days unfortunately!

Hopefully next year, but until then I will certainly have my share of questions.

Good morning everyone,
I've been watching this forum for a few years now, figured it's time to officially join since I finally bought an actual BR rifle a few days ago!

I have been shooting in the Lethbridge league (hunter varmint/modified) for 3 years now and really enjoy it, just a few weeks ago I was finally able to shoot in our Leffingwell Memorial Shoot for the first time and naturally I had a great time, also got meet a few of you which was nice.

Looking forward, I hope to make it to the BR101 and 102 next year (also been trying to get to those for a couple years) and to haul my trailer to the occasional shoot - still warming my wife up to that idea! She's currently more concerned with how I'm going to replace the money I just took out of our savings to buy the rifle.  :o ;D

Seems like lots of helpful people here (most gun-folks are) and I look forward to learning lots and hopefully being able to contribute myself someday.
