Real World Results With HWP Barrels
« on: October 10, 2018, 05:33:23 PM »
Lots of shooters have been turning in great results with HWP barrels, here are some of the higher finishes I am aware of:

2017
At the World Championships in New Zealand all of Canada 1 team used HWP barrels and finished 5th overall in the World in the 2-Gun Championship. Hugh Williamson was 6th in the World in the individual results.

2018
Peter Smith was 2nd in the HV 100 at the IBS National Championships with a .1776" Aggregate

Rob MacLennan was 3rd in the HV 200 at the NBRSA National Championship with a .1939" Aggregate

Rick Pollock was 2nd in the Sporter 100 at the NBRSA National Championships with a .1670" Aggregate.

Hugh Williamson was 1st in the HV Grand Aggegate at the NBRSA National Championships with a .1798" Grand Aggregate. Earning 2 Hall of Fame Points for this!

Hugh Williamson was 2nd in the 3-Gun at the NBRSA Nationals with a .2073" Aggregate, missing first place in the 3 Gun by only .007"!

Hugh Williamson was 1st in the HV 100 at the IBS Nationals with .1732" Aggregate. Earning a Hall of Fame Point for this.

Hugh Williamson, Rob Seemann, and Rick Pollock took the top 3 places at the BRSC National Championships this year using HWP barrels.

Peter Smith just sent in his results from last weekend at the WWCCA Fall Classic and his results are simply remarkable:

1st 100 HV with a .1046" Aggregate! Almost a zero agg! Possible NBRSA World Record
1st 200 HV with a .1824" Aggregate!
1st HV Grand Aggregate with a .1436". Another possible NBRSA record as well!
1st LV 100 with a .1542" Aggregate
5th in LV 200 with a .2253" Aggregate
3rd in HV Grand with a .1898" Grand Aggregate
1st in the 2-Gun with a .1666" Grand Aggregate.

Kudos to Peter! Well done!

To answer your question, Dan - I have 4 rifles, 3 LV and 1 HV. All are Bat DS actions, R/R/R configuration, Bix N' Andy triggers, Scoville stocks, bedded and glued by Dwight Scott. The barrels on my HV and my "go to" LV are HWP barrels with Bukys tuners. For several years now I have shot Bill Mitchell's bullets exclusively and my chambering /gunsmithing is done by Randy Johansen, my friend and shooting partner. The magic lies with the barrels, bullets and the gunsmithing, not the components.
It was a pleasure shooting with all you guys at the Nationals and I am looking forward to seeing you next summer in Calgary.

Curious about the twist and grooves? Cut or button?

The barrels I use are Hugh's cut rifled, 13 1/2 twist. I have shot lots of 14 twist barrels from Rob MacLennan in the past and I shot Rob's 13 1/2 twist barrels in recent years as well. I think I have shot a little better with Rob's and now Hugh's 13 1/2 twist barrels. I can't say 13 1/2 twist is definitively better. I'm a little thick headed so maybe I'm finally learning to shoot this game a bit better.

Just received a note from Stan W. who just received an HWP barrel and sent the attached picture of a target he just shot. Saying it had been in the 1's then dipped in to the zeros. Conditions were breezy.Thanks Stan.

Just got the targets back from the BRSC Records Committee - New Canadian Light Varmint 200 yard Agg record of .1896, shot at Rosebud, 2019 Alberta Provincials with a HWP barrel. 

Was fun to go back to my match notes and see how it developed...

The details - 13.5 twist, button rifled. 

Thanks Hugh!

It should be noted that Hugh Williamson had a great shoot at the Cactus Classic earlier this year, winning the HV 200 with a .1722" aggregate and winning the HV Grand Aggregate with a .1839". Well done Hugh!

All, I just wanted to let folks know that Dave Brooks shot a potential NBRSA World Record at a Benchrest Match last weekend. Dave was using an HWP barrel when he shot a .2159" aggregate at 300 yards. This is under the existing record and will be sent to the NBRSA record committee for official measurement, and hopefully confirmation of a new record. Of note, Dave also shot an individual group at 300 yards that measured .291".

Complete results here: http://benchrest.com/showthread.php?103515-Potential-new-world-record-set-at-Charlene-s-Meadow

Congratulations Dave!
