Re: Flash hole size

The smaller holes tightened up the ES. I think that is a common finding of people when they switch to Palma Brass. so from what I found the hole size was responsible for a lot of that. What I couldn't do was try large primers with small holes. Perhaps you could get some brass from Bertram that he ha...

Re: Flash hole size

Like I said I did some experimentation and found that the Large Primer pocket brass to weigh exactly the same as the small primer pocket brass. Given the variation in both cases they were the same. I dont think the more brass in the base of the SR Primer Palma brass is still true. I also did the tes...

Re: Flash hole size

I have seen the same thing and went through the experimenting process. The size of the hole makes the majority of the difference.

Re: Alpha Munitions - Brass interest

There was a guy that started to import and distribute the brass. Did he give up on the idea.

Re: NRAA QUEENS / Australian Championships

To me the National Queens is just a second Queens held in Queensland luck for the Queenslanders on having both or a choice of dates. One question I think that should be asked as it is "Our Money Jan" is the National Queens making a profit or is it costing the organization money. I think mo...

Re: another discipline

There are so many disciplines in the SSRs that are unused these days that could be resurrected to cater for some more shooters. The sniper class is part 16.2.3 under the Service Rifle Shooting rules. A lot of what is asked for is already there clubs just need to be a bit flexible to cater and to enc...

Re: NRAA QUEENS / Australian Championships

Nothing distinguishes it from other Queens events. For those who don't live in Brisbane, it is really just a second Brisbane Queens for the year. This is also true in that there is no real qualifying for the event. That certainly may limit the numbers but there really is no more Status to that even...

Re: NRAA QUEENS / Australian Championships

That measure is a valid one, However it does have some bias. The people that attend the Queens on a regular basis are your dedicated loyal, committed members. That many people may still be going when the NRAA only has 100 members. To look at participation and membership you have to look with a much ...

Re: Ammunition levy

Trevor I understand that all the bodies that govern us need money, but how fair is it to put a levy on one part of the membership. When things seem unfair thats when your troops revolt.

I may have opinions different to a lot of NRAA members but I am a very active member non the less. Working hard at club level and having some great success. Not afraid to go outside the box and introduce some small changes. As Wingnut said. "Our organisation is incredibly resistant to change. H...

Re: Ammunition levy

@Trevor a FUDD is someone who doesn't care what happens because it doesn't affect them. Perhaps I have this wrong but if you listed the bullets that are taxed that would make it clear. Who or what discipline is affected by the tax the way I see it is Fopen has a free choice to purchase any projectil...

Re: Ammunition levy

Perhaps it is time to look to a takeover or merger into the SSAA a larger pool of shooters already being managed economies of scale and less duplication.

Re: Ammunition levy

And the Fudds is Victoria want to leave things the same. Terminal cancer. Doesn't effect me jack hands off my stack. Why not let TR and some of FSTD pay more that is until 6BR is in FSTD. Then what happens Just TR. Oh and FSTD dies and 6BR goes back to F open. A lot of clubs only have 10 members and...

In Service rifle you can. The rapid fire details are still in the SSrs. We run a 303 day every year.

Re: 6 br additional calibre

Another small gripe that may rub the 308 FS shooters the wrong way is the bullet Tax. Since the removal of restrictions on 223 approved bullets they are able to avoid the bullet tax the 6BR calibre most likely would also be able to avoid the tax. This just leaves the FS 308 shooters to foot the bill...
