Re: AUSTRALIAN FCWC TEAM SELECTION

Having the privilege to be a firer in the winning NSW F-open team last year at Lower Light with Dennis as the captain I whole heartedly wish him and the rest of the team the best of luck in South Africa. I am confident they will represent Australia very well!!! We should be throwing support behind o...

Reloader 16 & 23?

I have a 1lb jug of the new RL16 that I’m yet to try in both my Dasher and 284win so will knownsoon enough what it’s capable of. But has anyone tried RL23 in their straight 284? If the online boards in the US are to be believed velocities in the low 2900’s are easily achieved without trashing brass....

Re: 280 AI information Blog

I swap barrels on and off my barnard, sometimes between ranges. I just keep good records of elevation for each barrel at the various ranges. As for windage. I keep records of how far from the bottom of the wind turret the zero is for each barrel. No need to have a second scope and zero is always spo...

Re: Savage 12 bolt lift.

Thanks for the tip Scott. I disassembled the bolt last night, it already has the small ball bearing mod where the assembly screw contacts the firing pin assembly. (There’s the case head of a 38special shell with a ball bearing glued in) But there was no grease at all on the floating bolt lugs (duh) ...

Re: Savage 12 bolt lift.

Yes this is new brass out of the box, all I have done is run an expander through it to ease neck tension a little.

Re: which would you recommend

On the subject of cartridges, there are currently a lot more projectile choices in 6mm at the moment, a 6BR or an improved version is stupidly easy to make shoot accurately and the improved versions don’t give up much ballistically to the 6.5’s, I shot 6mm the whole ACT queens to reasonably good eff...

Re: which would you recommend

To save diasapointment and if F-open is the game you truly want to play in I can only recommend saving your pennies for a custom target action and have a match barrel chambered and fitted by a reputable gunsmith. (Even an old 2nd hand angel/musgrave yaction or similar will work very well). Even an o...

Savage 12 bolt lift.

G’day guys. My dad has an entry level F-open rifle built on a Model 12 Rt bolt left port. It has a Krieger 8twist chambered in 6.5x47L with the same reamer I have had two other 6.5barrels chambered on my Barnard. The issue we are having is the bolt is getting heavy to open with what I consider to be...

Re: Best 6mm pills

I am happy with the hybrid and have 1400 on the shelf at the moment however looking for other alternatives to use in a club shoot or practise and keep the Berger’s for ...

Re: ACT Queens

I will try and give some account of today and yesterday. Conditions yesterday and today were the usual switching and fickle wind with the flags rarely steady and even more rarely agreeing with one another. The tricky conditions meant many were using a good chunk of their allotted time yesterday, tha...

Re: High power scopes and NQ mirage!!

I am uncertain if winding the power back helps to reduce sighting error, it certainly makes he target look a little more still. This is something I would really like to know as well. Mirage is often compared to the spoon in a glass of water I understand that may just to be illustrate two substances...
