    Shooting BR-50.......

    Shooting BR-50.......


    CYA accuracy fool friends:


    I've already given my advice to CYankess about shooting BR-50..............with today's ammo...



    We'd all love to be able to shoot BR-50, original BR-50 that is...


    It is the greatest RFBR game of all time....



    But the retro BR-50 target that's being used today simply compounds the bore glazing issue...



    Therefore........

    Once again, this is for CYankees only:



    You do as you wish, but I would highly advise against shooting BR-50.....


    It would be awesome if we could...
    .



    But this isn't 1994...........when you could shoot all you wanted, as fast as you wanted to, without fear of the bore of your killer barrel becoming glazed......



    Your pistol fool friend, Bill Calfee

    But even shooting the original version would present the chance of glazing the bore of your killer RFBR gun..


    Let alone shooting the retro BR-50 target with all the extra aiming bulls..

    Eley Prime

    I started shooting BR50 and IR50 in the Ď90s at Chief City Shooters Club. Eley Prime was used then and hasnít changed. We used Eley Benchrest Gold and Gold Box Lapua. But mainly Eley BR Gold, I didnít switch to Gold box Lapua til the Ď97 BR50 Nationals. I used Shilen barreled Time Precision rifle that was still winning when I sold it.

    And of course CYankees do not have to follow it......


    But................



    Knowing what I do about the potential for bore glazing, especially for new, unseasoned bores, I would be remiss if I didn't offer my advice....

    I donít know if I understand the usage of ďhonorableĒ in this case. It was a matter of necessity. Look up the results of the Ď97 Nationals, it was a good rifle.
    I got a chance to buy the unused Turbo you built. At the time I couldnít justify both rifles in my safe.

    Honorable

    I donít understand the left hand knock on my selling a rifle. About this same time period I tried my damned hardest to get your money that was owed for building a Swindlehurst rifle for a local guy. In the meantime it took Donna Brown to get even a dud barrel put on that same Turbo. Iíve defended you at every turn and this is the thanks I get! Maybe the meaning of honorable fits at least one of us in this conversation.

    Friend JH:


    My use of the word "honorable" was meant as a compliment.....


    I'm sorry you took it otherwise.


    Please forgive me.

    Here in lies the trouble with the internet

    Too many times people take things to mean what was not intended.

    In this case it was easy to make right, but in others it can be very difficult if not impossible to straighten out.
