Re: New Sporter/Hunter Class...is your club promoting it?

the rules doom this new discipline to fail in its aim. the intent is to attract hunters, yet no attempt has been made to understand what hunters use. mention has been made here of limiting scope power to 25x, yet a true hunting rifle will rarely have a scope that goes up to 10x. hunting scopes are ...

Re: New Sporter/Hunter Class...is your club promoting it?

More than likely it will be introduced into clubs as a trial to iron out any bugs before going to competitions.

Re: VRA lead up and Queens.

Considering conditions were a little gentle for Bendigo but still challenging there were some brilliant scores recorded.

Re: VRA lead up and Queens.

Things are looking good at Bendigo, already a heap of caravans and it's only Sunday. Weather forecast is sunny, low 20 and no rain or wind for the Queens. Pavillion is lined out and a new awning and entertainment area is completed.Still time to roll up and have a great time and enjoy the company.

VRA lead up and Queens.

This is mainly for Victorians, what would entice you to attend your own Queens shoot. Is it cost, finding time, Bendigo range, accommodation or some other reason. Once again your thoughts please.

Annealing and accuracy

Seeing topics have been a bit slow at late l will through another one in the mix. Reading a Queensland shooting post, it was stated that the first firing after annealing is not as accurate as the second firing. I disagree with this but you may feel a little different than me.What are your thoughts? ...

Re: Labradar

Hi Trev. I do not own a lab radar. But have used them and being a sonographer who performs Doppler ultrasounds all day everyday I can tell you that Doppler velocity readings will be dependant on the lab radar being positioned as close to the barrel as feasible and the radar being aligned (ie aimed ...

Yes Alan i try to repeat each testing exactly the same and not just 2 sessions. l fired 3 fouling shots then shot a minute apart.

Re: If ballistics is a science ....

It is easy to become blinkered wrt to one or two 'rituals' during loading and forget that many factors influence the final accuracy. Assessing all and ranking them in importance is the secret. Do not waste time on the less important things. They may become important but only if you have successfull...

Re: If ballistics is a science ....

What bugs me is l put a lot of time in case prep, bullet prep, barrel prep and load development. Go to prize meetings and at the end of the day if beaten l ask the winner of their prep work and usually are told l just throw the loads and pick the bullets out the box as l go. That makes me think l am...

Re: Problems with CCI 450s

Hi Trev Protrusion isn't the problem, when were the springs last replaced ?? If they haven't been replaced in the life of the action, that would be my first recommendation. The other thing to check is that the pin isn't dragging, easiest way the check is remove the cap and cocking sleeve and make s...

Re: Problems with CCI 450s

Trevor Have you measured your pin protrusion ? I haven't seen a Barnard out of spec yet, but there's always a first. Yes there is an aftermarket titanium pin available but the reduction in mass (wont help pin impact) and the increased bolt lift isn't very attractive. Do you have misfires with neck ...
