I was going to go for a .25 or .30 cal gun for BR, but to have your scores sanctioned by the USABR, .22 is the largest they recongnize.  I questioned them about it and basically they told me that they aren’t going to add any classes or change any of the rules because they are volunteers and don’t have the time to do it.  I realize that larger calibers are becoming more popular, but that didn’t seem to faze them.  I thought their response was rather indifferent.

So, I bought a RAW HM1000 in .177 and 12 fpe.  This gun shoots great, but I’m kind of limited to 25 yards, but that’s pretty much all that’s available here in Florida.  Maybe we need to start a new organization and divorce ourselves from the European influence.
