I would like to put one on a Finnish Lion I am buying, but don't really want to D&T it. Anyone know of some form of rail adaptor from the barrel mounts back over the receiver to a Weaver mount? It has mounts for a Lichert scope, but the Lichert does not focus well down to 50 yds. The globe in front is not removable and the rim of it is rather thick. I believe this is what messes with the short range focus. If the scope were mounted a little higher and were more modern optics, I believe it would work.

Good luck with that challenge Carl. Hope you can work something out.



I ordered one for my Kimber Hunter to be employed in the Sporter Class of our monthly USBR matches. I have used one for the past few years and have great confidence in this model. I agree with a statement of Barry's earlier in which he stated that his T-36s are always good for several extra points on the USBR target.



I have already pulled the big BSA 36X44 off of the Kimber and will use a set of Warne high tip-off rings to mount it on my CZ 452 FS. That rifle always grouped well with CCI Blazer. It will be a neat "funny gun" combo to shoot in the Cheap Ammo Class of our BR matches. The BSA is soooo long that the one inch section of the tube easily clears the CZ's massive rear sight and allows the objective to slope down just in front of the same.

They must have gotten their inventory "under control"... price is back up to $439. I have called them in the past and still got the lower price on some items.

Willie, are you gonna put it on the Anschutz? That should let you see what that rifle is really capable of. I was told that that the Savage/Anschutz Mk 10s and 12s have 11mm tip-off grooves. If so, be sure your rings are a perfect fit. Sometimes when the 3/8ths inch rings are used on 11mm grooves one gets a cant or an off-center scope - or both.

I mounted the new T-36 on my Kimber as planned. When you change glass, you simply must re-anoint the new combo via the golden raintree ceremony biggrin.gif :

Of course, that freed up the BSA Platinum 36X44. I included a set of high Warne rings in the same order as the T-36 and used the Warnes to mount the big BSA on my CZ FS. I am going to try it out in the Cheap Ammo Class of our monthly benchrest matches. A mismatch no doubt. But, I think it looks like a Black Forest huning rifle on steroids:

Now it's anointed as well.

Yea, you oughta be thankful wink.gif . Look at how the FS ON STEROIDS shot this morning:



IPB Image

I sighted in and shot some groups with SK Pistol Match, Aguila CMP White Box, and CCI Blazer. Then I put up a USBR target and started shooting without realizing I only had 20 rounds left. I thought I had put two boxes of Blazers in the bag. Alas, only one. Hey, that bottom row is pretty hot, huh?

Here is the very first and only group I shot with SK Pistol Match and interestingly enough, the first and best of the day with CCI Blazer. The CMP White Box was about the same as the Blazer.

IPB Image

The only thing I have done to this rifle other than mount a scope on it and clean it occasionally is to rotate the weight of pull nut to its lightest setting (trigger goes about 2 lbs 10 ozs and has slight creep).

Dang, I might shoot this in Sporter Class with the SK Pistol Match instead of the Kimber!

Looks like I might have to repo that SK Pistol Match. Looks like you are getting some good groups with it. I got a .224 with the 52D last week using the SK Pistol Match. If your rifle likes it it will shoot it pretty well. Barry

We can't shoot until high noon on Sunday at our range. So, it was up in the 90s when I gave the Kimber/Weaver a try with a USBR target. 50 yards. Very little wind. 222-2X. Will be interesting to try it at 7:00 AM next weekend. SK Subsonic Hollow Points.

IPB Image

After I finished. I rolled the Caldwell back up to the top and took a last shot at the USBR emblem on the right. Sweet!

Nice target can't wait to shoot the BR with the whole crew there. Me n' Barry have a little friendly duel going on 2 points at a time, if the trend continues 1 of us will have a 243 it is exciting as he!!.I am dedicating all my practice time to USBR only. The rest is fun and I like it but BR is my new thing, and have already tied up close to $2k in 3 months and still counting and wont stop till I beat the monster. According to the USBR website there has never been a 250 or a 248 for that matter, I think we have enough talent at our club someone can break it.Danny I think if you would shoot it with a real bench gun you could do it , but it is going to take a heavy barrel and BR stock you have the rest and talent .So be like Mike and just do it... biggrin.gif "T"

Naaah, I am going to leave the big guns to you guys. Back when I was shooting the RFC online matches, I shot a 238 with the Anschutz 1710 and a 240 with the Remington 541T. Of course I got to try four times a month and I could cherry pick the conditions. That latest USBR Sporter score record looks more interesting to me. Link:



http://usbr.benchrest.net/usbr_rec.htm



Hey, I just noticed that the latest Custom score is higher than the Unlimited. Too funny.
