Reply To: Why do folks like benchrest competitions?
Hey Joe, what are you doin’ with that gun in your hand? Just jokin, but you are going to be surprised at how many slow poke FWB 300’s show up at the Nationals. The springer class seems divided up between the old – slow but accurate rifles, and the souped up modern hot-rods that are professionally tuned by an airgunsmith, type springers. That is one of the beautiful things about benchrest, the diversity that exists among these shooters. As an example, my HV rifle is the newest generation of RAW with a brand new “Indexable barrel” and all the latest whatever you can get. But my mainspring on my old barrel is too light and could not get the proper factory spring in time…It now sports a Marauder “cheapo deluxo” spring. It is exxxxxxxxtreeeeeemly consistant, at least until I get to Oxnard. See you there Joe, bring Duct Tape!
