Re: Queens

You have not removed my " comfort blanket " Josh---I still have it--staying home isolated from those who would otherwise recklessly take their chances, and in doing so risk passing the virus on to others.

Re: Queens

The decision by VRA council to postpone is a responsible one. Difficult, disappointing, but highly responsible.
Well done people.

Re: Queens

Peter,
ZERO risk would be better. I metre for a few seconds is all it takes.
500 is BS, all it takes is two. Who sanitizes the chalk and score cards, the dunny door etc
The GP was an outdoor event.
Why take the risk?

Re: Reading mirage

Hi Scott, The problem with too high a scope power ( above 20x ) is that all you do see is mirage. Where exactly you pick it up in relation to the target is anyones' guess. Mirage in itself does not contribute much error --about 1moa in the worst of conditions. Wind is still the killer. If there is m...

Re: Reading mirage

A 15X scope is more that adequate for mirage. Gives you longer eye relief and if set up properly ( 45deg eyepiece ) can be viewed with face still on the cheek piece. A 15 x eyepiece allows you to see mirage across the whole length of the range, not restricted to one or two hundred yards of the range...

Re: What Omark is it?

You should be able to fit any foresight assembly but you may need to have a new mounting block made. If it is the original barrel it will be 3/4" diameter or 20mm for the 44B barrel ( i think ) The original foresights were somewhat small ( 16 mm from memory ) with later ones ( 44B ) at 18mm. Ba...

Re: What Omark is it?

The number would be DI ( not D1 ) and would have been manufactured around 1970 or 1971.

Re: Shooting mat options

A thin ( about 1" ) sandbag, not packed to tight, placed on the stones beneath your rabbit ears bag does the job nicely.
Takes up discrepancies in the stones and the underside of your rabbit ears.
Definitely a cut-out in your shooting mat is needed.

Re: NRAA QUEENS / Australian Championships

Alan,
I read your post same as Mike. You differentiated between National C/ships and Queens. The inference being that "anyone " and " novices" would be excluded from National Championships.
You need to clarify what you mean by " proper "
