Re: Just starting out

Dropping one point superx10 and using a bipod. I see you have difficulty reading (lol). Must have been the rear bag mate. It was actually true. He favours the Lithgow over his Tikka WSM for HC [-X. I went back and checked the Hexta target for two shoots at 1000 and add a correction. The one point he...

Re: Scales

Rob, I have gone back to the beam scale and yes its an old Ohaus. Got sick of the fluctuations in the electronic stuff.

Re: Just starting out

Our club range goes to 900 yards. I will say that at Rosedale, my son only dropped 1 point at 1000 yards with a 22 inch barrel this year. The rifle maybe exceptional. He was using 129 grain Nosler Accubond long range doing 2750 fps. This suits his 1-8 barrel twist. The rifle positively compensates. ...

Re: Just starting out

One club member has a Lithgow in a chasis in .308, the other is my son's in a wooden stock in 6.5 Creedmoor. Both off bipods but the Creedmoor is exceptional.

Re: Just starting out

I think some might not realize we can shoot Hunter Class in competition and to me, this is real "F" class because you can use these rifles in the field. Sure rifles maybe the same as PRS competitions run by other organisations. Just goes to show how versatile the use of these rifles are. I...

Re: Just starting out

Wiseman7187 my eldest son shoots both the Tikka and the Lithgow. He prefers the Lithgow and another in the club uses a Lithgow. Both are wrapt. https://www.osaaustralia.com.au/product ... -only-apc/

Re: Federal 210 GM primers

Yep, for big occasions. Leave nothing to chance because the competition is so hot. That also assumes the pin fall and spring pressure and pin protrusion are up to scratch.

Re: Federal 210 GM primers

Tested several batches of different brands and Federal came out on top with 2209. Still using the bulk lot of Federals. Some vertical is powder fouling from unburnt powder. Its a good idea to try a hotter primer if these issues start presenting in cool weather or go to a faster powder if the musket ...

Re: Which caliber to ahoot for new shooter

I'm normally reluctant to give plugs to manufacturers, but in the case of the Lithgow CM all I did was tickle up the elder son's locking lugs and it absolutely hammers on the range and in the field. At home, rabbits are now thin on the ground as well as foxes and deer with well placed shots at good ...

Re: Which caliber to ahoot for new shooter

Wiseman7187, the Creedmore is a very good cartridge. My eldest son uses a Hunter Class with a 22 inch barrel and smashes it. He only dropped 1 point at 1000 yards the last time he shot it and off a bipod in a teams match. Has a lot to do with tune, technique and learning to read wind. In the Moe clu...

Re: Warracknabeal Rifle Club Prize Meeting

I think 20 shots is too long a string for a prize meeting. It takes a long time to get through 20 shots and this poses several issues. From a scorer's point of view it demands a lot of concentration in case a shot is missed when shooters hang off for extended periods waiting for the right condition ...

Below is a copy of the rules applying to Victoria sent to me by Travis https://www.ozfclass.com/phpbb/download/file.php?mode=view&id=3789 My view is that clubs are autonomous bodies if they are incorporated, and depending upon their insurance can make a decision under the guidelines in Victoria....

Re: RUN TOO FAST?

I reckon recognizing the wind or mirage pattern and impact along the range is 70% of it and gear is 5%. That assumes the gear is good in the first place. Then it is a question of remembering where you are in the wind cycle, knowing your zero, and applying mental arithmetic when you have to and worki...

Re: RUN TOO FAST?

Albert, the answer is yes, you need to ride a bicycle unless you can get mentoring from a guy who has ridden that bicycle. Otherwise the ride to further success is very short. It has to be repeated on your own because others catch up. Then others may think you are just another man. We can't run too ...

Re: Handicap system

There is also the use of handicaps in many team shooting events and it is a basis for our current grading system. IMO handicaps should be scrapped and a greater emphasis placed on developing shooters to level the playing field, except for prize meeting grading. Utilizing handicaps in team shooting s...
