Re: Kock up, can it be fixed ?

When I started purchasing my reloading hear I thought that a turret press would save changing dies and be ok, yes it's ok but not what I need when chasing 60's and X 's. I reckon I lose heaps more points by pointing the rifle in the wrong place than by loading with Redding competition dies and a Ly...

Not really Danny. 8.25kg, very fancy bipods, rear bag, groundsheet.

Re: ACT Authorized Instructor - Canberra Queens

Probably easier all round if she just waits until her licence comes through or shoots in another jurisdiction where anyone licensed can supervise. How about going to Warrnambool?

Re: Optimum 308 Win neck engagement

Can't answer what the MINIMUM required is but with 210SMKs and 215hybrids I've found 3mm to be ENOUGH. That provides enough case capacity to keep them supersonic out to 1200 so I don't see any need to seat them further out.

Re: 6 br additional calibre

I think it’s a terrible idea to start “discussions” to get people talking about change, much better idea to do nothing and continue on with the sports slow death !!! Couldn't agree more Matt. I've just reviewed my posts in this thread and still think I made reasoned comment. Nowhere did I decry the...

Re: 6 br additional calibre

in usa they have a 308 class, a class called "any" and a class called "any/any". any allows any calibre, but only iron sights. any/any allows any calibre/ any sight. other than that gun wts, trigger wts etc are the same. these categories might be a better idea than just 6br it t...

Re: 6 br additional calibre

"The 223 Round has not really taken off as a competitive cartridge due to perceptions and misunderstanding"..........Then maybe promote the 223 with some real world testing and highlight it's advantages and clear up the misconception as quoted in the proposal Doing this would demonstrate ...

Re: 6 br additional calibre

i though the .223 was to cover the void for old to new shooters but i may be wrong . can someone comment on the pros and cons of the .223 against the 6br? Good questions. It would seem the underlying basis for the proposal is that people don't want to shoot the .223 due to "perceptions and mis...

Re: North Queensland F-Class - Long Range Bisley Challenge

How about Sat 11th nad Sunday 12th July? That would give a full day Monday 13th to travel to Raglan? Unfortunately the shotgun club has the Atherton range every 4th Sunday of each month thus 25th and 26th July 2020 not available? I was discussing this event with Richard B at Atherton last Saturday ...

Re: Prize meetings

However, there's a variety of things that attract members to, and keep them in this sport, and for some it isn't attending prize meetings. In my club, around a quarter of the members travel to PMs, and most of the remaining members are content to shoot club days, and possibly pennants. I'm not sure...

Re: Prize meetings

Not to mention Target rifle scorers that call centerbull or V for a six!!!!!!!! Keith H. Might I suggest to all that you have a look at Ch 13 of the SSRs. There you will find tables and text giving the name and score value of the target rings. The NAME of the 5 ring is Bull and it gets you 5 points...

Re: VRA champion of champions

To single out a person may not be the done thing, but I think Peter H did an excellent job, especially regarding the incoming weather. Phil Agree wholeheartedly. From my marker's perspective the key factor was having the next detail down and ready as soon as the previous one had finished. I'll also...

Well Shane, if the date is still to be decided may I point out that the MR and Long Range F Class Nationals are at Raglan 14-19 July. A date that fitted in would be good.
