    What do you define as long range?

    Long range means different things to different people.
    For hunters long range might be 500-600 metres.
    For target shooters long range generally means 800-1000 yards
    For others 1000-1500 yards, for extremists 1 mile plus.

    I'm a target shooter, my best two long range rifles are the Barnard Twins.

    Built around a Barnard P Action 308, 32" True-Flite 1:10 barrel, custom stock, 17 MOA rail, Nightforce Scope.
    One rifle is a year older than the other. Can you tell which is newer?

    Identical specification for both rifles, chambered by same gunsmith in 308.
    Same handload used in each rifle (Lapua Palma Case, 155gr Lapua Scenar projectile 44.5 gr 2208, Federal SRP).
    The reason is that if one rifle has a malfunction during a competition the other rifle can simply be picked up, dialed in and shot.
    The shooter determines the result not the rifle.

    500 yards 60.3 score

    Question
    Seen a few rifles with the stick on drop chart
    Right handed rifle, always on the right hand facing away from you gun in right hand etc
    Why that? More sense to me in the left side so you can see it?

    Nice rifle btw
    Went to buy some camouflage trousers the other day but I couldn't find any.
