Re: The Future

Something to think about Trevor and others envolved at the VRA which I think would be helpful... Firstly new membership applications need to be made easier... This whole/current system is not inclusive to new members... Currently new members have to find an "excepting club" once a new mem...

Re: 155gr bullet choice for 1:13 twist

Peter,

You will have no problems stabilizing any of the 155gr projectiles allowed in fstd, with a 1-13 twist... I would recommend the berger 155.5gr fullbore, these are very forgiving projectiles...
Hope this helps

Cheers

Re: 7 mm 178 copperheads blog

Geoff,

The 178gr bullet Graham has in his photo is not the 178gr VLD bullet you are thinking of which did require a short throat... This bullet is made on a new set of dies... With a 189fb it will seat 3/4 of the way down a 284 neck comfortably and touch the lands..
Cheers

Re: The Future

I believe we need to get back to the basics of club orientation. I am definitely not against competition but I believe the pendulum has swung too far toward competition.

The problem here is the barrel has never been cleaned properly from the beginning, and the fouling has compounded up until this point..
