Re: George Wittorff hunter class

Can someone please tell me why we are calling this ‘varmint’ Class? Last time I looked a varmint was an American word for any furry bloody animal. Please, let’s be original...and Australian. Geez. Probabaly because varmint rifles are the long range hunting version of rifle models put out by most ma...

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

Well my comments to George match almost exactly with your proposal Alan. I said no rear support but a light weight bag isn't unreasonable. I also addressed the scope issue but more on practical terms than financial. Varmit shooting requires a target acquisition ability that high power scopes comprom...

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

Maybe the bigger question, and I know it's been a topic before but should "brakes" be allowed on our ranges.. With the proposed class being named varmint and tactical i feel muzzle brakes should be allowed. The draft rules don't exclude them and my understanding is that there is no blanke...

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

No magazines, rear bag and 8kg are my main concerns. The 8kg in particular. Thats only a pound shy of a Bren gun and that's no walkaround gun. Well i didn't like walking around with it anyway. NZ have the limit at 4.5kg, with no rear support at all. Barrel length also seems a bit long for what is su...

Re: AUSTRALIAN FCWC TEAM SELECTION

of all the nraa disciplines, fclass open has clearly been the most successful internationally. yet we see palma teams and so forth continuing with methods that are clearly not working for them. it is beyond belief that they do not actively seek out the methods used by the open team. obviously part ...

Looking into high speed cameras to investigate that second one. Damned expensive little buggers!

Re: AUSTRALIAN FCWC TEAM SELECTION

How was the F open nominee list not a "strong field"? I think that's pretty simple. More nominees means more choice. For whatever reason (which escapes me) that Craig was not re-appointed, then there was only one alternative. I'm sorry Allan I'm not trying to play semantics but a long lis...

Re: AUSTRALIAN FCWC TEAM SELECTION

Alan, are you aware of who the nominee’s were for FTR? I would hazard a guess given your comment that you are not, otherwise I don’t think you would have made such a comment. I was referring to F-Open on the subject of nominees for Captain, and you're correct that I haven't heard who nominated for ...

Re: scope lense shade/extension

I had a fruitless search a few years back. I ended up contacting Sightron in the US who told me I'd need to source one over here. When i pointed out that there werent any over here so they would need to send one over here so i could source it, they came to the party and sent 2 to Herron whe sent one...

Re: AUSTRALIAN FCWC TEAM SELECTION

Personally I don't think the performance of the Captain in an Australian F-Class team is a major determinant of success, particularly at World Championship level where there has always been a good amount of life experience and management ability across the team membership. If you select team member...

Brass prep tasks- case volume, primer pockets et al

I thoight I'd pull this topic from the Alpha munitions thread due to some interesting comments. Case volume. As i understand it, case volume (or rather the effect of case volume) relates not so much to the gross case volume, but rather to the net volume after loading ie the gap. I know pressure trac...

Re: AUSTRALIAN FCWC TEAM SELECTION

I doubt there were any individual team members reports filed with the NRAA after the conclusion of the last FCWC. There should be a report from each team member with every positive and negative requiring attention for the next team to build upon. Those reports should be part of the consideration of...

Re: AUSTRALIAN FCWC TEAM SELECTION

I don't agree that either decision is as straiggt foward as the OP suggests. I feel there are a few names for each spot that have the ability to captain the respective teams effectively. That said, there is a tried and tested addage that goes allong the lines of, if it ain't broke, don't fix it and ...
