    bisley

    Went to bisley again today, tried my 6.5 06 loads out at 1000yds,considering the strong wind they shot like a dream,better than I hoped,shame I couldn't dope the wind to go with it,elevation was superb shot to shot, used my 308 aswell which i was using 175gr smks which I had 14 and a quarter moa dialled in,not the best conditions for 1000yds shooting but enjoyed every shot

    We were there too on Century, when the gusts peaked at around 25mph our tiny 62gr 5.56 needed over 6ft of windage and that was only at 500yds

    You must of been doing the csr, I came down and watched after lunch, my mate was shooting,went down in the butts aswell, my mate had 10 wash at 500yds prone with I think was 77 grainers.wind was shootable at 1000yds but it was easy to be 9 inches ish out with slight wind speed change.

    I managed a respectable 2nd at 1000yds, decent result seeing it was first time out with 6.5 06 and ammo,zero loads were good but still felt a tad hot so I reduced by 0.5grs, never got to retest,judging by zeroing with rear sand bag there wasnt alot wrong with the ammo ! Shame the wind was so bloody strong, was a good test for rifle, ammo and me, I just got to get use to judging wind for my new toy, shot my 308 decent too , already looking forwwrd to my next visit

    This is a genuine question because I do not know the answer and cannot find it in my reference books.

    Can .308 Win be considered the same as 7.62 NATO for TR purposes at Bisley?

    Not sure what the difference is apart from one is metric and one is imperial, 7.62 may have longer throat possibly, muir may have the knowledge to answer this one.

    I believe 7.62 and .308 are dimensionally identical however the mil spec 7.62 is a higher max pressure. But don't quote me on it. ��

    Swaro, I am sorry. Seem to have hijacked your thread. If only you hadn't mentioned your .308 shoot!

    Rob, you have put your finger on the essence of my question.

    7.62 NATO and .308 Win are most certainly not dimensionally identical.

    However, many shooters around the world do not differentiate between the rounds (probably not reloaders).

    But my question stands - do Bisley (NRA) accept both on the same firing point in the same competition.

    That sounds a good answer
