Benchrest shooting has gotten ridiculous.

This is just..... I dont even know.....









Its alot like outlaw 10.5. It began with noble intentions of letting honest joes participate on a fair playing field, and then a few assholes just take it too seriously.

That's odd. It looks like a pierce short action. I wonder if that can is for an ice bath or something similar.

Sort of strange that it has a dovetailed mount, cheapish 1" rings and not a whole lot of scope on it.

could be the rimfire benchrests, they do that at my gunclub with crazy ass rifles

I believe they are required to use dovetail mounts.

Its a rail gun the gunsmith that's building my new rifle built the first one with another friend of his . They are pretty wild they basically take out all of the human error besides reading wind.

Open class BR rail gun is like Top Fuel. Very limited usage.

Trying to get consistent 5 or 10 shot groups at 100 yards .2in center to center or less. This is called "agging", think agregate, or shooting consistent groups.

1/2 oz triggers you rub, not pull. You make your load on an arbor press and count your powder in clicks, instead of grains. High dollar stuff.

A lot of the newer rifles can shoot 1/2 MOA with some consistency out of the box. Getting down to 1/4MOA or 1/5MOA takes the costs way up.

There are some BR classes that put more emphasis on the shooter, instead of the hardware, like Hunter Benchrest. You shoot 6x scope with limit on cartridge, bag rest instead of machine rest and rifle weight. A simple off the shelf 308 varmint rifle with a leupold or Burris 6x scope can be competitive to some degree.

I suppose. I was able to get a true 1/4 MOA out of my 22" Sabre super bench AR with only hand loads. If you spend your money right it isn't too bad.

Honestly, I thought he meant they were (real) railguns. I looked through those images and starting wondering where the capacitors were, and where the power cables were... and guessed they had a battery cart or something I couldn't see, and then I find an image of a geezer with some standard rifle rounds next to the gun, and then I realized it was some ridiculous contraption. Honestly, it's one of the dumbest things I've ever seen. UNLESS the purpose of these weapons are to test ammunition consistency, then I could see it's use. But for competition this is retarded.

They are pretty wild to see first hand, the one I saw was chambered in 6mm PPC it would shoot .2" 10 shot groups at 200-250 yrds.
