If at First You Don’t Succeed….

If at First You Don’t Succeed….

One of the most rewarding parts of Mystic Precision is helping shooters get into various forms of shooting and meeting/exceeding their goals (hey, it helps pay the bills too ūüôā ). ¬†But sometimes the journey can get a little long, frustrating and expensive. I have had the pleasure of working with Kelly T for a few years now with info on set up, loading and testing. ¬†His baby has been a Savage in 338 Lapua Mag but unlike most Savage rifles, this one was a royal PITA! Here is the journey by Kelly T… Hard work, dedication and a large insertion of funds… success! “Well, It was a two year journey that started with my decision to get into the LR game after playing with what I had and realizing it’s limits. I purchased a Savage 111 LR Hunter (I believe is the model) and decided this was a decent and economical way to get started as I had no clue if I would enjoy the discipline.As I was already an avid and patient reloader with mild OCD this would appeal to me and my nature. ¬† SO I order up a 10-50×60 LRMOA from Jerry as I like magnification and I felt it would be suited well to this application, I also asked Jerry at the time what other “gadgets” he had there and he told me about his new MPOD, so, I said lets try one of those also. Items arrive in timely fashion as usual with Jerry, I have used his services and product line for quite some time, as well, his knowledge has aided me...
F Open Success First Match… 6 Dasher Custom

F Open Success First Match… 6 Dasher Custom

It is always great to have new shooters enter the sport and even better when you can help them get on the podium. ¬†Below is a build by Mike T of Alberta. ¬†He entered his first F class match in May and came in 3rd!!!! ¬†But his story is even better so here is Mike’s Email to me… “Hey Jerry Well I did my first F Class this last weekend (300,400,500,600,700,& 800). Having never shot past 300 I was nervous. Had some organizational issues at 300m but I got my act together for the rest. Day two (700 & 800) was windy up to 5 MOA hold. At 700m they pulled the target before I shot so it was off in the white (the RSO asked if I wanted a redo but since I was sure I was coming in last I told him not to worry about it). So did not rank in the top 3 on day one or two, however I came in third overall with the aggregate score; 4 points below #1 – about what I lost on the pulled target! Should have redone it, my bad. Thanks for the help with the bullets, the scope, & the tips. I raised my scope rings as you suggested and keep my head up when I shoot! Mike” Ooops… it ain’t over till the last bullet hits the target and scored. ¬†There is always time to screw up ūüôā Mike put together a great looking rig “My F Open target rifle is:¬† McMillan F Class stock w adjustable butt plate and cheek piece Borden Rimrock action Jewell...

2016 Sightron STAC 4-20X50 and 3-16X42 ‚Äď Performance/Value – Out of the Park

2016 Sightron STAC 4-20X50 and 3-16X42 ‚Äď Performance/Value – Out of the Park

  Doesn’t take much searching to see my posts and very positive impressions of Sightron scopes. Since they came out with the SIII family, I have been an ardent fan using them in competition and to reach way out there on my LR rigs. The new SVSS 10-50X60 is superb with a novel and unique focus system that is just a joy to use. My goto FTR competition scope now. Great glass, excellent and reliable tracking, nicely finished, backed with a lifetime warranty against manf defects, for prices way under product that offer as much performance, the Sightrons have developed a well deserved reputation for performance oriented shooters on a budget around the world. Historically, all the scopes were manf in Japan. Consistent quality but Japanese costs are higher then other markets in South East Asia. Here, Sightron has found a fantastic opportunity in the Philippines. Before the howls of horror get too loud, google Nikon and see where they have set up much of their sport optics manufacturing including their top ranking Binoculars. Nikon makes some of the best glass in the world …. Period… so the Philippines is a great place to call home. The STAC family is fairly new and really started life with the really cool 2.5-17.5X56 IR scope. Why such a big objective, cause the main market are the many hunters and predator getters all around the world that are allowed to hunt at night and with lights. Great low light performance? You better believe it. Been using one of these scopes and it has worked very well. The quality of manf, markings, finish...
Burris XTR Signature Rings w/ Inserts – Long Range Goodness

Burris XTR Signature Rings w/ Inserts – Long Range Goodness

I have been waiting for these rings for many months and am thrilled by how well the concept is executed. ¬†For those into LR and ELR shooting, a big problem is maximizing the scope elevation travel. ¬†Many use a canted scope rail but what if you need more? ¬†What if you find that you are using up a lot of windage to zero the scope? The solution is surprisingly simple and has been used by shooters in the know… the Burris Signature Rings. ¬†The patented concept allows eccentric inserts to physically shim the scope within the rings for elevation and/or windage. ¬†You can align the scope with the barrel without touching the turrets. Great idea indeed and I have successfully used this for a very long time on all my competition and LR rigs. ¬†But scopes have gotten really heavy and large tubed over the last few years and the standard Burris 4 cap steel sig zee 30mm rings were starting to hit their limits. Burris answer was the XTR tactical rings… well made alum rings with a wide 6 bolt cap. ¬†Held very well but had the same problem of all solid rings… ring vs scope tube alignment and not being able to shim. For 2016, Burris has merged the concepts of both rings to make what may be the BEST ring set for LR shooters Welcome the Burris XTR signature rings… the size and brute strength of the XTR rings WITH the ability to shim the scope using the Signature style inserts… SMART. The rings arrive in the pelican of scope ring boxes. ¬†A plano waterproof container...
