Hi guys, thought i would join this page as it has some really useful information.
I haven't been shooting long, but do enjoy long range stuff.
I have a Ruger Precision Rifle 6.5 creed with a Vortex HST 6-24 scope which is primarily used for my long range stuff. Still working on 'how to shoot' and getting .45 inch groupings at 100m. Probably more me than the rifle.
I also own a Savage b22 which is a fun little rifle for use on the property.
I am currently building a 223 for target/hunting. It's a Howa 223 1/8 on a Hogue stock. Be nice to shoot that out to 600m. But i think the stock may let it down.. we will see. I'm putting a Vortex Diamondback 6-24 scope on this one. Not the best quality, but i didn't want to spend too much on this setup.
Anyway, thats me.
Thanks for running a great group.
Hello and welcome on board.
Given what I've seen on the hunting shows on the outdoor channels here in the states, if the Airlines can LOSE(YEAH RIGHT... GREAT SECURITY..) a TV celebs rifle, I sure as heck wouldn't want to put a $5K rig in my baggage and only get reimbursed the pittance they offer. I've been told that you could ship the rifle to a gun dealer in the area you hunt but that is a hassle.
