Re: 6 br additional calibre

alex,
like so many things in nraa, this is almost kept top secret.
meanwhile, ssaa has developed their insurance to cover business and other markets to make more money.
then with this money they advertise on the radio.

Re: 155gr eld match loads

mick,
before you load 100 rds, it might pay to do a little load work up, wherever your date comes from.

Re: 6 br additional calibre

tim l, the stack of cards is tumbling down. where is the p.r? where is the fund raising through such things as selling promotional products.? where is the culture change we so badly need to advance? (survive) why are our disciplines in the eddies of a backwater compared to some others? where is the ...

Re: 6 br additional calibre

getting back to the original post, we must ask one question. what is best for the future of the sport? not, what do I want now.? what are all the positives of going to 6br, vs all the negatives. the bottom line is whether or not it causes the sport to increase. and the question raised by the origina...

Re: Twist rate recommendation vs calculated twist rate

all being well, 1.4 will not be bad. BUT. (yes that word) if something less than ideal appears in the weather, unforeseen things can happen. barometer shows higher pressure, and then the bullet goes through a wind shear situation, an out of character shot might appear on the target. as the bullet go...

Re: 6 br additional calibre

sungazer,
you would not need a new gun, just a new barrel.
this could happen when the old barrel is worn out.
all the guys who use a bench in our club might not otherwise shoot, and gain no real advantage doing so over shooting from the ground.
we are glad to see them there and welcome them.

Re: 6 br additional calibre

certainly name change is worthy of consideration, when one realizes that people are staying away from nraa due to the belief that it is connected to nra usa. period. bullet tax is just another way for the nraa to avoid the elephant in the room that they need money to promote our disciplines, and the...

Re: 6 br additional calibre

paul,
was just trying to debate the subject from all angles.
not sure where you are coming from or what you are trying to imply.
I find the term keyboard warrior offensive, and hope you are not applying it to myself.

Re: 6 br additional calibre

barry, t.r. always had a culture of if you used a scope you were cheating. when they introduced that is was so guys with sighting problems could still keep shooting, but most would not due to the cheating phobia. usa now allows scopes for the "across the course" discipline. my own experime...

Re: 6 br additional calibre

in usa they have a 308 class, a class called "any" and a class called "any/any". any allows any calibre, but only iron sights. any/any allows any calibre/ any sight. other than that gun wts, trigger wts etc are the same. these categories might be a better idea than just 6br it th...

Re: Minimum Speed Needed for 1000Yds

I have put 40 and 45 cal bullets through hexta targets at 700 fps striking vel and got readings.
like 2ranges on club shoots and no failures.
not sure how 30 and 22 cal bullets at these speeds would read.
this is certainly a consideration for those considering purchase of e.t.

Re: Minimum Speed Needed for 1000Yds

bob,
ideally look for mach 1.1 min under all conditions.
below this things can start to happen unless the bullet is extremely stable from mach 1.1 down to mach 0.9 - the transonic zone.
some bullets are better this way than others.

Re: 6 br additional calibre

there would be a lot of 308 barrels suddenly become obsolete.
