The guys that are shooting long range, do you all reload for your rifles?
Depends what your idea of long range is...

If you want to go past 700m I really dont think you will be very successful with factory ammo
Shall I rephrase the question then? The guy who shoot rifles, do you reload?
Whether for hunting, long range, just plinking etc.?

then i need to chnage my answer....

no, not yet.....but I intend to

Also have a look at the GRS rifle stocks for HOWA and Rudolph optics

Thanks, I have looked at them.

I am not a fan of the GRS stock. I put a few rounds though a friends rifle with a GRS stock. They are nice, but not to my liking.
I was not impressed with the clarity and focus on the Rudolph. so i ruled them out

GunWorx in Randfontein did the fluting and stock... the stock is done in house. You can find them on Facebook, just search for precision riflestox.  Gunworx  063 346 1511.
They are not expensive and compared to what similar stocks by GRS costs, mine was a less that half of the price. My stock is based on the GRS Hunter light. I would recommend them.

now that my license is approved....the build can start.......as soon as SAPS prints the license card that is....

Anyways......

Been putting some thoughts into chassis systems, and I had a look at some at Huntex,

As much as i really like the warrior, I have also been looking at the following:


or the



Now my decisions are becoming difficult.......

Obviously i need to consider (and i think this is the right order or prcedence)

1 - Build Quality
2 - History and market share
3 - Accessories
4 - Cost

Any thoughts on these and opinions to help me make a good choice

My new Howa 6.5 Creed license has been approved. handed app in Feb 2022 approved 15 May 2022!!! Now the wait for the card begins. I am in no hurry. Still need a scope for the rifle and Bullets.

Got Lapua SRP brass on Friday. Must decide if I am going 147 gr ELDm or Berger.

Hopefully this one shoots from day one not like my previous 6.5 Creed. This will replace my 7mmRM as my XSSSA gun.

I just got a STG Invictus chassis. Have a look at it. I have fitted it to my .243 Howa whilst I wait for the 6.5 creed and it makes shooting so much fun. I have a smoking guns composite stock that is actually for the .243win which I love, however the fact that you bolt the action into an aluminium stock that you do not need to bed or worry about crimping and expanding takes lots of "worry" away.

I tried the Hornady 123gr SST but they didnt group the best. Switched to 147 ELDM and they are great so far. Did so step load testing and the group before the jump was pretty nice at 100m.
