The rules will be tweaked some next year to make it even more shooter friendly. I will try to get them up soon so everyone can have all summer to prepare. I think you will like the changes.

I agree. I'm already practicing. Opps, did I say that out loud. I mean I haven't shot a gun in two years and won't until the next egg shoot.

The pictures of the rifles laying on the bench I find interesting, but what are they? Since your tweeking the rules how about next year if the competitors fill out a rifle information sheet, something like this?

Here is mine Bill:
Scope-Leupold 4.5X 14 Varmit reticle
LaRue mounts
Rifle- DTech Tac .20 weighed in at 10lb 1oz.
Rock River tuned trigger
Shilen 1/12 twist 22 inch SS/fluted barrel/free float
components all Rock River/ camoed in NatGear
stock extention
Load was 39gr Sierra in Fire-formed r-p brass with 25.5gr of N-530.
PS I bet if you started a post and asked you would probrably get most of the shooters to reply what they shot. There were a lot of really nice guns and I would guess about 50/50 AR's and bolt guns.

Venatic thanks for the reply and congratulation on some fine shooting. I'll leave this here since RagnCagn said he is going to tweek the rules for next year and maybe some others will respond. If not I'll move it to the other thread. I hope Ragncajun will consider my request for next years shoot because it would show what the competors consider a egg shoot/predator gun is to them. I prepared to shoot the match a couple of years ago but didn't because of conflicting events at the same time frame. My rifle and until I get something better was a 30+ year old stock Remington 40X in 22-250 using Sierra 52 grain HPBT's with a Weaver T-10.

I was using a stock Remington 700 VLSF .22-250 with Remington 55 grain PSP factory loads. Leupold 4-14 scope. I just need to learn to play the wind when it isn't blowing the way it was when I practiced then I'll be more of a competitor next year. I watched the 1st year, decided to try it this year and plan on doing it next year also. Met Sundy's wife this year and she did the same thing. Watched this year and is planning on entering next year! You go girl!! I'm not sure if I'll use the same gun or try my AR sice I can get that one to fit me (Remington is a bit long for a 5'3" person) ! All in all, I had a great time just as I did last year! Thanks Randy!!!

Mine is a pretty much standard Bushmaster Varminter with a few internal modifications. Nothing that I think really improves performance, just makes it mine. Glass is a Leupold Vari X III LR 4.5-14X50 w/Varmint Hunter reticle in an Armalite 1 piece mount. Ammo is by Wisconsin Cartridge, 55 gr V-Max @ 3050fps. Nothing special.

Mine was just some old thing I drug behind the truck half way to Globe before I realized the sling was stuck on the tailgate. I noticed the sparks from the barrel in the rear view mirror which caused me to stop. The barrel is about 4 inches shorter than it was before we left for the trip, but it still shot on paper.

I think I bought the bullets at a yard sale 10 or 15 years ago.

Jeff that's funny. Maybe if you had noticed your rifle 25 more miles down the road you would have accurized your truck gun to hit the 300 yard egg.

Thanks to those that have responded. Hopefully more will. They are interesting to me. AR's are certainly plentiful. You all have nice equipment.

Bill

I was shooting a 17 fireball Rem. CDL with a custom barrel and a neiko Stearling scope. The loads were 18 grains of 10X Powder driving a 27 grain Kindler gold. I have yet to even have a Coyote even move after being hit with this load they just crumple Kerry

Mine was a Dtech 243 wssm sum barrel, jewell trigger, Shepherd scope. It's my regular "go to" predator rifle and the only one I brought with me. Does the job on coyotes and (unlike the 17s ) will shatter eggs too (when I can hit them ).

nmleon,
Currently I've got a Remington 700 at the gunsmith waiting for a Shilen SS barrel. It's intended for fox and bobcats. Maybe it will work on eggs too.

The quality of the rifle (within reason) will be taken out of the next competition. Shooting ability will be greatly emphasized over rifle ability. If you have a 1 MOA rifle and can shoot, you stand a good chance to be competitive. The rules will be posted later today.

I was using about as bone stock of a rifle as possible.
Remington 700VS in 223 with a Leupold VXIII 4.5-14 50mm. The only modification to the gun was the wrapped on camo stuff! I definitely need to tune the trigger a bit, its great on yotes.. but definitely not Minute of Egg
