WMS range – Wales

Formed informally, the committee is a group of target shooters who belong to disparate NRA affiliated clubs. They meet regularly to enjoy discourse and long range shooting. So named after a black and white photo resembling a meeting of a soviet collective farm, the committee is dedicated to safe shooting and a bit of science. Within…

Building a Precision Rifle – Part 3 – Extended range shooting.

The GnZ Precision rifle build has up to now been a huge success. At both 100yds and 600yds the rifle achieved very good results. Would this bear out at longer range. First we should bear in mind the budget so far.. MDT HS3 Chassis system – £500 Second hand Remington 700 ADL – £350 Second…

Building a Precision Rifle part 2.5.. A quick update from 600yds.

I headed back out to Bisley today with regular contributor Raf and the Precision Rifle project. The project is based around a £350 second hand Remington 700 in .308.. It will end up as a light weight .260Rem. Please head back and check out the first two articles for in depth descriptions of the plan…

Building a Precision Rifle Part 2 – MDT HS3 Stock assembly and DNZ Gamereaper mounts.

After a couple of weeks of paperwork and thumb twiddling the second hand Remington 700 finally arrived (many thanks to ACP Shooting, Sussex, UK). I had been trawling the used ads online and found an ADL (basic model) for £350. The rifle is well used but in satisfactory condition given the price. The barrel is…

Two days in Wales…

Once again the Guns and Zen crew teamed up with Transcontinental shooting for two glorious days of shooting in Wales… Day 1. Clays. I will be the first to admit that my clay shooting sucks really badly. I have only been a handful of times and received no proper instruction on any occassion. I became…

Range Day – Thoughts, findings and photos..

The one thing I always need more of in shooting is practice. The biggest improvement I can make is in my wind/enviroment reading. Sure I could drop a bundle of cash on better kit and probably pick up a few points.. Like many of you I am on a limited budget. If buying gear prevents…

GunsNzens Birthday shoot!

What should one do on their 39th Birthday? Get drunk? Eat crap? Nothing? I decided to go shooting for the day with mild persuasion from the ever keen Raf. Sam, the other Gunsandzen regular also came along for the ride….

Reloading rifle cartridges. 2 – Kit and workspace

Because you need to be able to work to very fine levels of precision and consistency when reloading, your kit and workspace become very important. The scales that seem like a bargain on Ebay may look tempting. Will they weigh to a 10th of a grain consistently, thousands of times over? Probably not. Every small…

Reloading rifle cartridges. 1 – Reloading and Zen!

Reloading your own ammunition is a time consuming and delicate business. Some shooters just cannot be bothered. They are happy with the factory ammo they use. They are pleased with the performance of their rifle and ammunition. They are happy with the cost. That is fine, I am not a reloading elitist. I reload for…

Long range shooting for beginners 8 – long range at the range..

After a rather mundane bit with maths and tables we now get to have some serious fun. This is the day we have been working towards – shooting out to 1000+ yds. For some of you competitive long range veterans that may seem like no big deal. For many (myself included) who have spent years…
