Re: The inevitable price rise is here

ouch !!!!! 17.5% is a ripp offfffffffffff but we always are getting stung with our piss poor exchange rate Not that long ago we were .80C USD to 1 AUD Currently we are battling along at .60USD and it did plummet to .55USD only 10 days ago or so. That represents a 25% drop minimum so 17.5% is not a ...

Re: WA and QLD close dealers down

Their real reason is to reduce panic buying like that in the states (USA) at the moment. (obviously) , effectively ramping up gun control without any consultation. I hope that they reverse their closures eventually but clearly in our society the authorities have all the power at the moment. Their r...

Re: Reading mirage

Mozzie My main consideration with spotting scopes is eye relief. Most are too short for use with glasses and have very short eye relief. Many are also available with interchangeable eyepieces Thus it is possible to maybe get longer eye relief and larger FOV or wide angle which is a benefit I would s...

Re: Velocity changes with twist rate of barrel ?

Bartlein have been offering it as custom for a long time

Re: 204 short - off topic

I chased a 75 action for years and eventually chambered one in standard 204
The 75 magazine is longer than the 85
However, it has a 1/8 twist to enable running 55gr Bergers and they still require single loading!
I really love that caliber for rabbits as one can spot hits due to light recoil.

Re: Newbie needing some advice

Hi Julian I haven't competed at PRS but been watching on sidelines . I think you need a 10 round mag and regardless of caliber I would use a brake. You need to spot the hits/ misses yourself for any correction required. I set up a Tikka CTR with the 24" barrel in 6.5CM to mess with but never go...

SARA STORE WEBSITE?

Can anyone shed any light on SARA or SA Rifle store website please?
It does not seem to be working?
Wanting to check on barrel availability?
The old site transfers to a newer looking site which does not have anything there?

Re: another discipline

I will make a big call here and say the 5 current Tikka T1X I have experienced would run with a 2013 for accuracy!
Even a custom stock on one will likely see you at half the price of the Anschutz!
