Re: NRAA QUEENS / Australian Championships

jasmay,
we need to learn from our mistakes in order to not repeat them.
embracing new disciplines while avoiding the reality of the ones we have now is a mistake.
and then not promoting them will send them down the gurgler like not promoting the ones we have now seems to be doing.

Re: Name Change, discussion papers for & against

I agree with Bruce. Long Range target Australia does have a certain appeal to it. It also appears to be available, with many of the other names I could think of already registered to other organisations. Having said this, I don’t believe we need to lose the NRAA identity. We just need a ‘brand’ tha...

Re: NRAA QUEENS / Australian Championships

All state Queens are generally in decline. Maybe in overall numbers. Just curious though how numbers are going in each state for F class over the last few years? Since 2014 numbers in F class in each state have remained almost the same. Numbers vary slightly each year up or down but when you look a...

Re: Name Change, discussion papers for & against

excellent post ryan.
this is the way to go, as opposed to well meaning individuals "having a try".
we only have to look at the new so called hunter class to see where that might go.

Re: Ammunition levy

firstlythe question is why after a general downward trend in membership nos, did membership increase in 2016/2017, then a further downward trend. surely nraa management must have asked why the increase, and how could this have been built on. this whole bullet tax debate is really about funding the n...

Re: Name Change, discussion papers for & against

consideration of this topic must include an understanding of nraa culture, as well as the position we are in now, compared to the one we need to be in. our culture in general terms tends to be predominantly insular and inward looking. we look at what we want, failing to prioritize or even recognize ...

Re: Hornady ATIP 230GN 30cal

years ago Hornady made the original amax with aluminium tips. then they brought out amax with plastic tips and told us why plastic was superior. now we see the return of aluminium and are told it is worth more money, and packaged and priced accordingly. who do you turn to at a time like this? I see ...

Re: 2206H or BM1 in .223 Rem?

I use bm2 in 223 with 50 gn bullets, and it works well for that application.
I think I remember trying it with 80 gn bullets, and finding it a bit fast burning compared to other powders for best velocity.
bm2 from memory is slower than bm1, and seems to be similar to imr 3031 in burning rate.
