What CAN’T Duct Tape Fix?

After finishing a Rifles Only competition course, one of the attendees mentioned having a scoped and barreled action with the Teludyne sleeve on it with no stock. The set up would likely shoot well no matter what stock is sat in.

Accepting the challenge, Jacob Bynum bet he could bet he could put it on a 2×4 with duct tape and successfully zero then shoot it at 1000 yards. No action screws, no bedding, only inletted for trigger, bottom metal, and recoil lug. Just parts strapped to a 2×4 with duct tape.

Zeroing at 100 yards

Shooting at 1000 yards on steel (listen for steel hit)

Lesson learned: Marksmanship skill is more important than equipment.
