Re: Scopes - FFP or SFP for F Class

Sometimes, it’s a matter of what suits the shooter. At the Port Campbell PM this year, I Shot a 60.5 at 600 yards, which was the only possible at that range, and that includes FO and FTR .
I had my March 5-50 set on 8x and used the hash marks to frame the target.

Cheers

Re: Scopes - FFP or SFP for F Class

Sorry Bruce, I like vertical and horizontal hash marks, if visibility isn’t good then I adjust the magnification so that the hash lines are on a scoring ring, which gives a very accurate aim. I can also use them to measure the distance from the centre to the spotter.

Re: Barrels and gunsmith

I have also had a couple of rifles made by this gunsmith and found his work to be top notch. But don’t try to hurry him. I also appreciate that his reputation is at stake when he makes a rifle and therefore he isn’t interested in something that may or may not work. A lot of shooters will blame their...

Re: Omark action wrench

Hi Peter, the one I have, I’m keeping, but it’s made using an old Omark bolt head. Very simple.

Re: Which caliber to ahoot for new shooter

It’s probably more of a question as to which class you want to shoot in. F standard or F Open. F Standard is graded ie A and B grade, therefore new shooters can start in B grade and work their way up to A grade. F Open is ungraded, so you get to play with the big guys straight away.

Re: Warracknabeal Rifle Club Prize Meeting

Hi Mick, I tend to agree with Williada. Also, with travelling etc to PMs , I would prefer to shoot more often with less rounds than to shoot less often with more rounds. Hope that makes sense.

Re: stuck cases

Hi Copper, my apologies if my comments have offended you, however, in your first post you stated that you had to push them all out, I therefore had visions of quite a number of stuck cases being pushed out. You then advised that there were 4 in total, two of which were at the Butts, in which case I ...

Re: stuck cases

Competition or not, if cases have to be pushed out with a cleaning rod, then something is wrong and prudence would suggest finding out why before, as you say, having to push them all out. Just saying.

Re: stuck cases

Question, if you were getting stuck cases, why did you continue shooting them? And why were you allowed to continue shooting them? Stuck cases usually indicate a pressure problem.

Re: Nikko Stirling Hornet ED 10-50x60

Hi Buckshot, generally I’ve found that most high magnification scopes aren’t at their best at the highest power and cheap high magnification scopes can be very poor. Magnifications above 40 power required a good clear day to be of much use and the higher the magnification the lower the field of view...

Re: Nikko Stirling Hornet ED 10-50x60

Couple of questions re the Sightron, what magnification was it set on? at what distance was the target? Was the reticle adjusted for you eye? Was the scope focussed correctly? Was there much mirage ?

Re: Nikko Stirling Hornet ED 10-50x60

Personally I think you would be better off to pick up a 2nd hand Sightron. For the money they are a very good scope, can’t say the same for any Nikko Stirlings I’ve seen in the past.

I would suggest a 10-50 or 8-32 with 1/8 clicks, fine cross hairs and .125 centre dot.
