Re: Mound Setup 101

For what it's worth, I was videoing my wife shoot her SAUM the other day and she is totally motionless behind the rifle (to the point where I thought I hadn't pressed play until another rifle was fired) and her position is the same shot after shot, range after range. It just seems to come naturally ...

Re: Mound Setup 101

Nice info Tim! I too have found that the Auspod when set up well keeps elevation nearly perfectly and I can go 12 shots without doing anything more than sliding the rifle forward and backward to keep it cantered. When the setup is off though, it's an absolute prick, lesson learned I guess, if it’s n...

Maybe if Rod offered lessons to the buyer......


I can see the lesson plan going something like one tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor :D


I will do it if that's what it takes :lol:

Re: 6 br additional calibre

An ideal candidate for an F Open SUB CLASS. Just made for the likes of myself who can no longer take the recoil or the $'s presented by the 7mm Magnums. Come on Rob you know your stocks love a heavy SAUM :D https://live.staticflickr.com/31337/48895574606_a1a584dcc5_b.jpg Sophie with her 7mm SAUM by...

Re: Safety: Retiring from the mound

I would say some people insist on being able to see daylight down the bore. IMO this isn't necessary,it cant be done with the SLR, SA80 M16 etc, lever actions, falling block, but you can see the rear of the breach in all. But it's good to see that no one is leaving the range with a squib and who ma...

On Sunday I witnessed a standard 223 savage FTR rifle blitz the opposition in hard conditions with 308s/200gn struggling, this bloke started the day with 60.5 at 500 It was a borrowed 223 F class savage that got Sophie shooting, hitting a 60 something at 600 when its owner hadn't even taken it back...

Re: Seb NEO Front Rest Wanted

Your best option is probably to email Jason Myers of SEB Australia and get on the waiting list for a new one (about 2 months for a NEO if the latest reports I have heard are accurate)! If a second hand one shows up grab it as it’s a rare event but like busses, you can be waiting for months then two ...

Re: Which Barnard aftermarket trigger?

I have been reading this with interest. I have always wanted to try a Bix N Andy but when the quote came in at nearly $1100 I simply couldn't justify it and with a unknown quantity of stock modifications on top. For a heavy trigger I have no issues with the Barnard but when you try and crank the wei...

Re: F Class .223 for a junior shooter

Secondhand prices are so close to new for quality kit that I would be spending the money and getting him setup with a competitive rifle. If you can find a 2nd hand Barnard or similar you almost have nothing to lose, you may even gain yourself a 2nd rifle :lol: Oh and if it's something you would want...
