I also use a Browning 52 Repro (Japanese) for Hunter Silhouette. Wears a Nikon Monarch 2-7x, which I know is a handicap, but I just like this combo too much to change.

Here is my budget-budget rifle...

A Savage Mark II with fluted heavy barrel in a Boyd's Pepper (grey) Tacticool stock, with a Barska 18x40AO on top. Nothing too exotic, but it will do for now.

I put a good bit of work into that Savage stock. I'm going to revisit the bedding and I think it will be a very accurate gun.

The 541T--Sporter is deadly accurate for a sporter with a 2 1/3lb trigger pull. The last two measured 5 shot groups at 50 yards were 0.57" and 0.48" outside edge to outside edge. 0.346" and 0.256" adjusted for bullet diameter group sizes. Eley Target and RWS R100 respectively.

The other Remington pictured with the 541S and the 541T-Sporter is a 541T-HB.

I've never seen these pistol silhouette matches. I imagine them to be pretty interesting to watch.

They can be a very laid back affair.

Creedmoor is nothing to look down upon.

All (long gun) silhouette except for Standard class is 90% shooter and 10% equipment. Standard class has started to become/is an equipment game.


Pete, Bruce, Jim D, and I thought one other had one but I don't recall his name

Is that you Jim?

Nope, David M. I just don't shoot as often as I used to.

Here is my silhouette rifle. A CZ 455 American with a Leupold FX-3 in 12 power. Some trigger work, bed job, rubber butt pad,muzzle recrowned and some lead shot in the forearm to move the balance point forward and that is about it.

They are a lot of fun. Most people wouldn't believe what a good rimfire with good ammo can do out to 100 yards.

Always good to see some lefty rifles. The really good shooters are left-handed.
