Re: Primer tool

I’ll second Ned Kelly’s comments. I’ve used a Sinclair primer tool for quite a few years. Very pleased with it.

Re: Potential for new f class competition

30 years ago, I was shooting a 6mm Remington on a mauser action, Harris bipod, squeeze rear bag, budget 6-24 scope, scoring same as TR ie 5, V.

But that was before F Class which the Canadians apparently invented.

Alan, you just love sticking your head out.
Maybe we should only be counting the sighters at each range. :roll:

Re: Scopes - FFP or SFP for F Class

Sometimes, it’s a matter of what suits the shooter. At the Port Campbell PM this year, I Shot a 60.5 at 600 yards, which was the only possible at that range, and that includes FO and FTR .
I had my March 5-50 set on 8x and used the hash marks to frame the target.

Re: Scopes - FFP or SFP for F Class

Sorry Bruce, I like vertical and horizontal hash marks, if visibility isn’t good then I adjust the magnification so that the hash lines are on a scoring ring, which gives a very accurate aim. I can also use them to measure the distance from the centre to the spotter.

Re: Barrels and gunsmith

I have also had a couple of rifles made by this gunsmith and found his work to be top notch. But don’t try to hurry him. I also appreciate that his reputation is at stake when he makes a rifle and therefore he isn’t interested in something that may or may not work. A lot of shooters will blame their...

Re: Which caliber to ahoot for new shooter

It’s probably more of a question as to which class you want to shoot in. F standard or F Open. F Standard is graded ie A and B grade, therefore new shooters can start in B grade and work their way up to A grade. F Open is ungraded, so you get to play with the big guys straight away.

Re: Warracknabeal Rifle Club Prize Meeting

Hi Mick, I tend to agree with Williada. Also, with travelling etc to PMs , I would prefer to shoot more often with less rounds than to shoot less often with more rounds. Hope that makes sense.

Re: stuck cases

Hi Copper, my apologies if my comments have offended you, however, in your first post you stated that you had to push them all out, I therefore had visions of quite a number of stuck cases being pushed out. You then advised that there were 4 in total, two of which were at the Butts, in which case I ...

Re: stuck cases

Competition or not, if cases have to be pushed out with a cleaning rod, then something is wrong and prudence would suggest finding out why before, as you say, having to push them all out. Just saying.
