It's been awhile. Work has been crazy and keeping me really busy. I believe it's going to be a little more normal over the winter but then back into crazy in the spring. Its put a big damper on shooting. I did manage to hit a couple of my favorite matches.

The 260 AI is pretty impressive, I chambered one for a friend last winter, he's been pretty successful with it in competitions this summer.

What are you guys using for a ballistic calculator? I used the NF for years but my old lap top it was on crashed. I put a thing on long range forum and some say ballistic app you down load on phone. I just did but im terrible with electronics. I only got a I phone this year to take credit cards for my business. I hate to start trying to figure this out. LOl

I use several different ones but my primary one is Ballistic AE for the iPhone. It does everything I need and I can also measure group sizes with it.

I use jbm ballistics program. Free online I just print out papers for every 5 yards and 10 degrees it's a lot of paperwork but I'm old School and like it that way.

dragman, any chance you would know the spec on the table? length, width, and thickness. i think a set of folding table legs would work on a bench like that. i like to hunt groundhogs but not into the long range like you. i use a remington varmit special in 243 model 700. its not a carry around rifle and a bench like that would be perfect. do you ever make it to meetings at the club?

I can get you measurements.
If you want to buy one the ones protektor sales is actually really nice.
No meeting for me anymore I can't stand the bickering honestly

i can understand not liking the bickering. i go just to get out of the house for a couple hours. maybe with a change of officers it might stop. ive belonged to that club since i was 13 and its close to home. what does protektor charge for one of his benches? i was thinking of building one to keep myself busy since im retired.

I think like $120
I have a used one let me see if I can find it. Would cost you less than half
