A 15lb Cooper? What have you got there Randy, a 1.25" bull barrel 28" long, and lead in the stock?

I doubt you will be over Bill, my 40X with a full bull barrel and a wooden highpower stock is just under the limit.

a 243 with a 26 inch S/S 1 inch tube and a HS precision stock. 8-32 Burris scope. It loves 105 Berger VLD's. I thought I could not worry about the wind with that one. LOL

This is not a bench rest competition!! No bench rest guns allowed. We're talking about a hunting rifle competition here. Bull barrels are OK since that's what a lot of us hunt with (me too), but no bench type forestocks (more than 3.5" wide) and lets keep it to 13.5lbs all up weight (rifle/scope/ammo).




First paragraph of the rules Michael. I don't care, I think shooting off sticks will be the great leveler. It was your concerns (and others) that said no heavy/benchrest type guns.

And how did I miss that? I skimmed and ran a search on weight limit but didn't find the FIRST paragraph. From my life expereinces, being an idiot has no advantages that I've been able to find.

Personally I don't care what you guys use at the shoot as long as everybody feels included.

Leon,

I assume that proceeds go toward offsetting PM costs?

LDhunter, You are correct.

ALL the funds from this hunt , advertising and all the auctions and fundraisers that members do during the year, along with regular donations, go to keeping Predator Masters running and growing.
Access to our board is free because of these thing, and the tons of work that volunteers do throughout the year.

Access to this board means access to the advice, wit and wisdom of some of the best in predator hunting. It means we hear about the latest gear and techniques, along with several opinions of "actual in the field" use, without pressure from advertisers and manufacturers. We welcome all here, newbie and experienced alike. We want to hear from all about their time in the sport.

Thanks for asking and allowing me to beat the drum a little.

Leon - I've got a question on the following rule:

"No rests, no benches, no bags, no bi-pods or tri-pods. All shooting will be from unattached one or two legged shooting sticks,"

I've been batting this around with a friend. It is fairly clear that bi-pods are not allowed. A question arrises when the "unattached". Can the shooting sticks be attached to each other or do they need to be two completely different unattached to each other sticks?

Unattached as in not attached to your rifle. Shooting sticks. Not tripod type (I'll take off or fold back the third leg of my Stony Point Polecat sticks). Presumably the sticks will be attached to each other in some fashion.

I'm asking for a clarification. My 40X is less than 13.5 pounds and the forearm is less than 3.5 inches, is it legal for the shoot?

Bill

I'm going to go out on a limb and say yes. Under weight and inside the stock measurement.

Just a question, does one HAVE to use shooting sticks? Would it be acceptable to freehand? I can brace better than I can use those sticks, and while I like them, I am not used to them. I am still trying to find a way to make it out this year, but I am not holding my breath.

Jeff, You mean could you shoot without any support (and not prone)? Yeah, I guess you could, but I honestly don't think you'd be competitive. That would be a pretty tough row to hoe. On the other hand, it would make for some king sized bragging rights if you could pull it off.
