Here's a link to a list of the competitors and equipment. Quite a range of actions and calibers I'd say. Looks like a pretty high dollar activity based on the equipment used. They must take this pretty seriously. RD

By the way...The Fly Shooting Group has a great site with tips and Tricks and a forum. Here are a couple of examples.

Aussie Mick, I was looking at a couple of other links on there. One listed calibers used in a competition. There was a 7mm Jacko and an 8mm Jacko listed. Never heard of them, can't see any internet info on them. What exactly are they? RD

RD,
Here is the info from the man who designed and built them both:

Hi Mick, sorry about being late on this, just seen the message in my email.
Here we go, 7mm jacko-2, I'm doing well with it at the 1000yd here, its a 8x68s,necked down to 7mm,312 neck,300th long neck 509th shoulder, 520th base 40degree shoulder, 200th free bore,and .2845 throat.

I built this in 1999 well before Dave Tooley and his boo boo,if u need load data just ask.

8mm jacko, well yeah it was a 338 - had to hide it haha
375 ultra mag necked down, cant remember the exact specs, but 360th long neck, 40degree shoulder 12th of body taper, set up for the 300grn sierra.

I sold the dies and reamer to a guy in South Australia and he shoots to 2000yds with it.

104.5 grns 2218 2980 fps accuracy load,, could punch well over 3000 but didn't shoot well enough, the problem in the fly was that it knocked the splash plate off every time I hit it , so I shot blind all day with it. In Friday's practice it shot consistent 1& 1/4" groups at 500 with different loads,96 grns 2225 was super accurate at 2890fps.

The 7mm jacko is mind numbing fast with 180 grn pills and these new high energy powders, but 3050 fps is where its at for 1000yd accuracy.

So there ya go RD - Straight from the horses mouth (so to speak).
cheers jacko

Mick, Thanks for the follow up. The 7mm would be just a hair larger than a 7mm Weatherby. The parent case has very close to the same H2O capacity as the Weatherby but it appears that his case is blown out a bit.

As far as the "8mm" (that's really a .338) that's a ton of beef right there. Can't imagine it would be much fun to shoot all day even though I realise that these are fairly heavy rifles. RD
