Re: Abrasive cleaners and copper fouling

Abrasives, are not the problem its the people using them incorrectly that is the issue... If you have hard carbon you have copper... ( carbon is hydroscopic another issue). Longer you let the carbon build accuracy will be compromised not to mention the harder the carbon is to remove as it becomes l...

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

I'd like to see a (strictly) factory rifle class with a maximum allowed RRP on the rifle. We can try too hard to cater for existing rifles suited to all manner of other classes and enthusiasts. We need to think more about those who are starting out. If we choose specs which allow people to buy read...

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

This seams to have gone from a discussion about a hunter class allowing for rifles shot by the average farmer or hunter that and are in every safe on every farm in the country to yet again how can we incorporate PRS at our ranges. Whilst I have no way of proving it, I suspect that the people with $...

Re: Junior shooters new rig

Yeah my plan is to run Berger 108gr BT (first choice).. Might even give the 110gr SMK a go aswell. Looking at all those cartridges they are all very similar, id be looking specifically at brass quality and availability before making a decision... (Im glad I got my norma XC brass when I did) The Dash...

Re: Junior shooters new rig

Ben,

I went with the XC, over the dasher mainly to eliminate fireforming of brass.. I dont think there is any trade off between the two cartridges if anything the XC should give him "marginally" better ballistics.. (Nut driving it still has to do his part :lol:)

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

If we have to create a class for new shooters to use our ranges. Then maybe two classes are needed? Factory Hunter class (up to 4kg) TR scoring rings Tactical/varmint class (up to 8kg) Fclass scoring rings Both classes use: - magazines - muzzle brakes - bipod and rear bag (minimise coarse of fire in...

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

Look what " development " did to FS --removed it far from what it was originally intended to be, to a stage where an FS rifle with bipod is now heavier that an FO rifle --ridiculous. Ridiculous you say....... What would the sport look like today without Fstd??? I find it hard to believe s...

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

Trev, 8kg allows for development within the class, long range shooters want the best out of their equipment.. These shooters are building 7 to 8kg braked rifles to shoot long range.. Because their 4.5kg outfit doesn't cut it... Ask the gunsmiths what's being built for these guys... Also 8kg is a goo...

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

Give this a thought, Our brand is long range target shooting, we are trying to create a class which we don't have that attracts shooters.. You only need the one class like Fsd with two grades(Varmint/Tactical class).. Most Varmint/tactical rifles are similar in ballistics put a weight limit of 8kg t...
