Club Events / Mission - June 2019 Benchrest Score Shoot
« Last post by mdumont on June 27, 2019, 12:54:58 PM »
Nine shooters showed up to shoot Score for our June match as a runup to the Jim Latham match in early July.  We shot 200 and 300 yards using the 10 - 11 scoring system.

Spring conditions with moderate switchy conditions. 

Joe prepped the targets, Pete and Vlad took care of running and stripping the targets,  and Art handled scoring.  Thanks to all!

Next match is the Jim Latham Memorial on Sunday, July 7, and don't forget the BRSC Group Nationals on August 3 & 4.

And the results...

Thanks for having us, I got a good chuckle when I heard the chit chat on the line about who's this guy and why has he got so many flags??? I think once they got the name to go to the face it all made sense. Given the conditions I think everyone shot great and I'd really like to tilt my hat to that Mike guy that clenched 3rd overall, I don't think his feet planted back down on the ground until we arrived back on the island.

 We'd love to attend again, given our crazy island shooting schedules we're unsure when just yet

With Ray away, Paul stood in as money taker and match runner.  Also thanks to Mel, Derek and Man Kay for scoring.

We welcomed Dave, Mike and Tammy from Vancouver Island, and they proceeded to show us how it is done.  We need to keep telling ourselves that competition improves the breed.  Seriously, we do hope they return soon. 

Conditions were tricky, with shifty spring breezes. 

Next match is July 27, the Provincial Championships - Hope to see you all there.   

Here are the results, sorted by class and rank.  Additions and changes to the Equipment List are appreciated. 


...and here are the ongoing numbers for the year-end title.  Once again, you have to shoot all matches to get a reasonable average until more than 5 matches have passed.


Now I have to get myself some more wind flags...

Just a note that Canadians have turned in some notable performances in St. Louis. Hugh Williamson won the 2 gun and Tyler Edmunds was 4th in the LV 100. Well done to both.

There several folks using a tuner some use it as a damper some as an adjustable tuner.
I have been using a Polar Precision Tuner over the last couple of years. This a dampener and a good barrel is needed to see what advantages they give.
So far i have not seen the true advantages, but the current barrel is showing a bigger then normal tune window so time will tell.

Little article by Gene Bukys:

Set the gun up to accept the tuner – (thread the muzzle end of your barrel)
    Put the rifle together and do not install the tuner
    Go to the range and tune the rifle as you normally would, make it shoot as good as you can
    Then on the same day, and in the same conditions, install the Tuner. Use a nice heavy grease on the threads and apply this grease to both the tuner ID threads and the barrel OD threads. (Gene uses bolt lug lube). Screw it all the way on the barrel till it stops against the shoulder then back if off at least half of a turn and lock it down. This way you only have one way to go while tuning — you can’t go further on the barrel as you will hit the shoulder quickly.
    Then load up whatever shot well without the tuner on the gun, and shoot a 3 shot group
    If the rifle sticks them, (you got lucky) mark that spot with a felt tip or such and shoot it again except I would shoot a 5 shot group, If I wasn’t fooled and it stuck them again I would move the tuner out 1/8 of a turn and shoot it again If it still sticks, I would continue to move the tuner out 1/8 turn at a time and shoot 3 shot groups till it quit sticking.
    Then put the tuner in the middle of where it was sticking, lock it down, and never move it again.
    If the rifle tries to go out of tune I would change powder charge just as if there was no tuner on the rifle.
    If the rifle shoots big after installing the tuner on the muzzle, (this is the norm) just shoot 3 shot groups and start turning the tuner out 1/8 turn at a time till you find the area where it will stick them. I find that the rifle will usually come into tune before you have made one complete turn, but no big deal if you have to go a little more than one turn.
    I try to find an area where the tuner can be turned thru about three 1/8 turn moves and still shoot. As you move the tuner out you will find that there are areas where the rifle will shoot good in a very small spot but when you turn the tuner another 1/8 turn it will go big on you. Try to find a broader area to leave the tuner — life will be better if you can find an area where you can make the 3 moves and the rifle continues to shoot well.

In my experience with these things, I think, I’ve never seen a barrel that actually did go to shooting better because of a tuner. What I think the tuner dose do is help to keep your rifle in tune through a larger range. I think that you will see that your rifle stays in tune better thru atmospheric changes than it would without a tuner. ??? I could be all wet about all of this though. –Gene Bukys

No one at local matches is using one....at one of the nationals held here someone out west had one on his rifle...
I plan on playing with one but have not got around to it..would just make the tuner myself have made my own for rimfire that seem to work.
have read lots of online till eyes want to bleed....would suggest behind crown style like the Beggs style or Loker...but this is just internet opinion no real life experience...is the direction I intend to try.
you can sure win without one best I can tell most top guys still not using one....does not mean one can not play with one.
