Messing with a Steyr .

Recommended Posts

Both steyrs out tomorrow . the wifes cos she lost her ranges/ numbers sheet . grrrrrrr . and mine cos i just wanna shoot it . i am not convinced that putting the steyr in the pup stock is best for her . she is better sitting with the pup . but most of the time she does bench or standers when she attends .??? HOLLY

 

I doubt it with the weather unless Carisbroke has suddenly aquired a nice warm sheltered zero range...:grin:

Ok wife out tomorrow ( she say's ) gotta decide between the pup stocked Steyr and the hunter stocked steyr . she has not been getting the standers with the pup . also do the power check to see whether bazza was right or wrong . as said shoot at 780 and then down to 750 fps . too see how much drop i get ???

OK lot's of messing with Steyrs today . the wife decide to go back to the hunter stock , after much testing . i did a classic silly on getting to the club of checking my rifle over the chrono before it had a chance to cool down . so 795 . ohhh too high . down to 780. but of course after shooting for a while it was down to 763 as it cooled . anyway once set up at 780 . two shots were fired at 55 yards . then down to 750 and two shots fired . the first shot at 750 dropped an inch . the second half an inch . subsequent shots at that power were all with in an inch . grouping in a light wind was not good at that power . ??? HOLLY

 

PS after two charges of air , around 160 shots . i found the groups getting smaller as the barrel leaded up . the trick now is to find out where they start to get bigger again . i think it will be similar to my shutz . EG . shoot it for a day before a comp . then leave it till after the comp to clean it .

Weights are easy to machine up, and if you go the other way someone is doing a whole back end lightened.

A lesson to be learned today on the standers . i was not doing that well on the sitters as the rifle did not fit properly . so tried the standers . awful . had enough of this going for a cuppa . sat there and thought . can't end it like this . so get out and do the set standing course .5 resetters . 10 shots . 10 , 15 , 20 , 25 , 30 and finish with a inch bell at 28 yards . just gritted my teeth ( well i would have if i had any ) and said grrrrr gonna get these . and did . all in the mind mateys . do not . do not ever give up on the shot . .???

Well.

 

That is a real pity and when we were all looking forward to seeing you on the last day.

Maybe everyone in the FT community should initiate a whip-round to see if we can raise some dosh..............so that you'll stay on the Rock :grin:
