Upcoming RBC (Aug 26th-Sept3) @ Ramseur
« on: July 18, 2012, 01:43:44 PM »
Anybody else planning on attending the RBC in Ramseur that is coming up in August?  I'm about 5 shades of excited about this event and I just hit the enter key to sign up.


Cheers,

I will be there. Coming from South Texas. Reserved space in a squad hut.

I am picking up a new M1A today to tak.  How much ammo will I need?

Lets see... new M1A, a week at Ramseur (in a hut even), 1200-1500 rounds (figure 1 per mile from south Tx)... sounds like a good time to me.

Maybe I should bring my .22 rifle also. I am not sure if I can take 60lbs of ammo on the plane.  @&)

Good times either way.  :---

Check out this info on what to bring: http://www.appleseedinfo.org/bc_whattobring.html

You may want to consider bringing a .22 LR for the shorter distance stuff.

I just weighed some ammo and 200 rounds of 308 is about 10lbs. I need to check but I think the weight limit for bags are 50lbs.  To save on overweight baggage I will have to forget about trying to bring clothes or hygiene equipment. I might be a little stinky by the end of the week.

I live relatively close to the range (about 2 hours).  If you want me to bring some extra supplies just let me know.  I'll try my best to help ya out.  Send me a PM with what you need and we can coordinate.

Cheers,

Thank you for the offer. I will be in contact with you in a couple of weeks.  I might have to ship a box of stuff to you a week before the RBC.  I need to do some research on cost per bag on the plane compared to UPS cost to ship a box.

I picked up my Springfield M1A yesterday and UPS delivered my order of 308 ammo from Wideners.  I spent almost two hours last night watching the old US Army M1 training videos online.  I am looking forward to take what I learned shooting 25yrds AQTs and use that to shoot KD with the M1A.

I need to start walking a couple of hours every night and doing more dryfiring to get my body ready to work.

Would love to, but I can't take time off work.  But we are hoping to come up for an Appleseed with you all before The Husband deploys this fall.

im in the same boat. i was able to attend last years august rbc but i wont be able to do the entire week this year. hopefully i'll be able to get 2 or 3 days in work permitting. RBC's are an experience of a lifetime, filled with lots of history and shooting. Last year it took Lawrence 2 days to finish the first strike!
