Here ya go
I now own the rifle and am still working/struggling to get it to shoot where I think it should. I am beginning to have my doubts.
So far I have found one load that will shoot at .45 MOA at 200 yds. Only one though.
I want to be able to shoot F/TR with this rifle but with a 21" barrel that is a tough row to hoe and the fact that so far it won't shoot anything heavier than 155s is making 1000yds look really iffy.
The rifle is a huge hit everytime I get it out in public. Everyone wants to know what it is and everything about it.
No regrets here. Frustration, Yes. Regrets, no..
Cool factor is above 1000. Practical factor is somewhere around 50.
I'm convinced that it will never shoot as well as even a budget F/TR rifle like the Savage 12 F/TR and you will spend close to or more than the cost of the Savage to get it even close.
All that said, I am hard headed and fully intend to campaign this rifle in F/TR. Until I move to Houston with thicker air it should be competitive here at 5-7000ft.

I see that on my side the link isn't working. They fixed the E-store and broke the forum.
If it isn't working for you try it direct. http://http//www.thecmp.org/forums/s...ead.php?t=3197
You doubletapped the http:// part of the link both times.

fixed linky thingy

Nice catch. I fixed it in the original.
I guess that's called milking the mouse?

I forget what the F stands for. The name of a Canadian gentleman who originated F-class shooting. Any optic is allowed. I've seen everything from Weaver T-series to $4,000 March scopes.
There are two classes in F-class. Both are fired from the prone position.
F-open. 22lb weight limit, any cartridge smaller than .311 caliber, rifles are shot from a benchrest type front rest with a rear bag. A competitive rifle usually costs at least $3500 and the average is probably north of $5K
F-TR. 18lb weight limit, calibers restricted to 223remington or 308winchester, rifle must be fired from a detachable front bipod, rear bag is allowed, supposed to be the class for folks who don't want to spend the price of a used car for a rifle.
Matches are fired at 300, 600 and 1,000 yards. Targets are reduced versions of the MR and LR. The X ring is one half MOA and the 10 ring is one MOA.
Quite challenging.
My Mann device is not competitive in the F-TR class. There are some things the original builder did that hurt its accuracy potential.
I'm still considering buying another one and starting over.
Here's mine again since none of the links to the old board are working.

This is my mann project, the receiver from the mann I built into an 03a3 and the barrel from the mann and an extra d&t 03a3 receiver I built into the rifle with scope. I still am going to put a different stock on the mann barreled rifle but used this stock I had just to see it work. It shoots pretty good with usgi ammo but I will not try to reload just for it until it gets properly stocked. Its fun doing this and I have learned stuff along the way. I think its worth doing but there are more practical ways of coming up with an accurate bolt action rifle. Its kinda heavy and toting it around makes me homesick for my old M60.

Most of the posts concerning the MANN Accuracy Device a.k.a. MANN Accuracy Barrel were made on the old forum which at this moment is not up and running.
There are two threads on this forum that are accessible and they contain some links to the old forum. At least one of the links to the old forum still works but I have no idea how.
2007 thread link to old forum that works-
http://www.odcmp.org/new_forum/topic...69&whichpage=4
The other links will work when and if the olf forum should come back on line.
