Are we worried too much

RE: Are we worried too much
Thank you Arnie.

I will be in Montana over Fathers day. But I think that yearly trip is closing down for me. I just cant sit behind the steering wheel for three days getting there anymore.
I will talk to you when I see you at Rapids or Merrill about this.
I think a 1/4 bore would be a good way for me to get going for this game. I have the equipment to get a barrel mounted on one of my CPA actions. These close 1/2 day driving matches I'm finding are sounding good.

Also, regarding that problem with brass availability.
The 32-40 BMW is a fine cartridge for Schuetzen that is considered an "falling off a log" cartridge
to get started. Brass will last forever since, ia person can shoot just one case and breech seat.
Can even use re-formed 30-30 or 32 Spl brass. I bit short, but works fine for smokeless loading

I believe a person would not be too far off to get a 10 or 12 twist 30 cal barrel and chamber it for the 30-30.

I know people that shoot the 38-55 BMW with good effect for a Main gun. Easier to see the 200 yds bullet holes

Quarter bore, some are shooting the 25-35 to good effect. No problem re forming 30-30 brass again
And the 38-50 Rem Hep can be used for both the BPCR and as a main gun.

Thank you Arnie.

This is just a beginning thought for me because I want to spend more time here with close matches going on with in just a 1/2 day or less travel time. The back just cant take the long trips anymore behind the wheel in the truck.
I have two .375 calibers so that is done but I would like a .25 even if I make a switch barrel for one of my CPA's.

I’ll be heading to Montana at that time as well. I’m interested in this match though and considering how close I am to EC, it’s a shame I haven’t gone down for it yet. I believe there’s a second match there
later in the season, right?
I can’t really afford a dedicated rifle but thought maybe I could get my feet wet with my 38-55. I doubt it’s capable as a Schuetzen rifle, but you know me. I’m game to try!
I won’t be at Merrill this Saturday. My wife planned a surprise birthday party for me and I accidentally found out about it!

TNX. Arnie.

I would like to visit to see the format of a Schuetzen match. I don't know about June at this point but the Fall match will most likely be a go.
I might even have a .25 caliber barrel on one of my actions.
I made up my mind to get a barrel ordered and start turning it down on the lathe. I found rental reamers for some .25 chambers also.
I just have to work out a ROT for what ever .25 I will make. I'm sort of leaning for a .25-20 or one a little larger in the .25-30 ranges.
I have a couple old walnut tree crotches I will get the chainsaw out and see what I can find for a piece of wood. They should be well dried out in 15 plus years Big Grin
I think the fun will begin LOL.

Kurt, Jim,
For your Quarter Bore (25cal) project, people, myself included have gone with a 10 twist barrel
to shoot the 115-120 grain spitzer plain base bullets like the NOE 117 grain MOS I have.
At such time as we can get together at a match, you could try out shooting my Hoch 25-20
I am now thinking about an earlier Play Day at Rapids for doing not only BPCR, but other stuff like Schuetzen rifles
