I use Harris while hunting prone, sand bags on the bench as more stable than BiPod and shooting sticks for coyotes as not one type/size fits all. While Harris are also pricey never found pivoting Bipods that user friendly but that's just me.Mayor,
Thanks. I was looking at bags also but, the weight to carry around is an issue I think if I’m not at a range.
Was thinking Bipod to cut down pack weight.
Not many 6.5 available for sure. I had to wait for them to ship from another store.
Now trying to find ammo is another issue. Back ordered everywhere.
Thanks Bob,All my custom barrels are cut rifling and hand lapped and neither manufacturer of the ones I use suggests any barrel break in. On a new barrel, I clean it, wet it, put three fouling shots through it and start shooting it. I do clean more thoroughly in the beginning, once every 5 shots than after that once every rotation (5, 10 or 20 rounds) or after 20 rounds.
When I get out there and get my bearings straight, I will give him a call. Maybe do a rifle class. I have only fired hand guns at the ranges over the last 3-4 years. Have not fired a rifle in 35 years!!His shop is at his home in Lake Haupachan New Jersey. He also runs a Benchrest Clinic and Seminar at Cherry Ridge Gun Club as well as a Summer League there and a Winter League at Mid-Jersey Gun Club. He is a great shooter, a great guy in general, a great smith and has lots of stuff.
Bob,I keep a one piece Dewy Rod in each of my rifle cases. I have a dedicated one for each caliber. Also have a bore guide for each of my actions. Keeps cleaning fluid out of the trigger and at the same time protects the chamber against aggressive cleaning.
