I think you're right. It could be due to different default security settings on some browsers, and the Forum software not being able to handle it. I'll refer it to my phpBB guru.

Re: Beginners scope suggestions

Make sure to get an MOA (not MIL) scope with 1/8 MOA adjustment. I think some of the 8-32 Sightrons are only 1/4 MOA. I have 2 Sightrons and would recommend them. Probably better to go with variable than fixed magnification. Some may prefer a fixed 45X for 1-200yd BR but you rarely see that type of ...

Re: KM Arbor Press Force Indicator

If variable seating force is bad enough to be a serious problem, you'll definitely notice it with a standard arbour press. What you do about it is the same. You look for the problem and fix it, or if its not really bad you might just put the abnormally light or heavy seaters aside, and use for sight...

Re: CANCELLATION OF 2020 ACT QUEENS

The badges for NSW Match Rifle and Long Range F Class event at Ungarie as well as the badges for the Ultra Long Range Challenge at Coonabarabran were made very early in the year prior to Covid even being about. They are all dated 2020, do you suppose that competitors in the 2021 events (if they are...

Re: WARA Queens

A question for WARA Queens shooters. Do you know if the "Hunter Division" is identical with the the SSRs "Sporting Hunting Discipline"? If it is then I may start a ranking system category for it.

Barrel Trends

In the last few years, I've heard of more F-Open shooters in particular, changing from 5 groove canted land barrels to 4 groove square lands. What is it about 4 grooves that makes them preferred by a significant number of leading shooters? Is it a general impression about their accuracy, or are ther...

WARA Queens

Wow! The WARA Queens has been and gone unnoticed (on this forum at least). https://www.results.nraa.com.au/wara-2020-queens-prize-meeting-results/ There were some very close finishes. Looks like it would have been a shoot-off between Ben Dei Giudici and Katherine Keogh in F-Std, while in F-Open, two...

Re: Eric Cortina on setting the dies for shoulder bump

what is an inaccurate rifle? .5moa, .75moa, 1 moa more? In the context of being able to read wind... I think its more about learning to read the wind (over time) than for example during a 10 shot shoot. And I think describing a rifle as having e.g. "1 moa accuracy" can mean very different...

Barry, David,

At Rosedale we have specific approval (interim) from the Police for the Sporting Hunting Discipline. When all clerical boxes have been checked our formal Range Approval will be updated.

Re: bearing lengths.

180 VLD Match are on special $79 at the VRA. Most 7mm Berger varieties are available at BRT. You need to stock up when they're available - cheaper and makes sense in terms of getting uniform lot numbers over a long period. Not sure how Ken's 7mm projects are going - he's had a lot of trouble getting...
