Re: George Wittorff hunter class

Trev, 8kg allows for development within the class, long range shooters want the best out of their equipment.. These shooters are building 7 to 8kg braked rifles to shoot long range.. Because their 4.5kg outfit doesn't cut it... Ask the gunsmiths what's being built for these guys... Also 8kg is a goo...

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

Give this a thought, Our brand is long range target shooting, we are trying to create a class which we don't have that attracts shooters.. You only need the one class like Fsd with two grades(Varmint/Tactical class).. Most Varmint/tactical rifles are similar in ballistics put a weight limit of 8kg t...

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

or it might actually need to aim for those already striving for longer range accuracy. Its not an easy call for George to make. Those already striving for longer range accuracy are building 7-8kg + rifles, most outside our range energy limits and generally have a muzzle brake fitted.. Maybe the big...

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

Tactical/varmint class is a good idea, magazine use and bipod etc... Just dont be narrow minded and think these rifles are not capable of shooting on fclass scoring rings.. I do believe a division is needed, two grades, possibly A grade on fclass rings B grade on TR rings Just a thought, Cheers Alan

Re: The Future

Dropped into our new local gun store yesterday, they were having their grand opening.... There was a spit roast and BBQ stall out the front welcoming their customers... This also happened to be on Cod opening weekend so there were plenty of fishermen passing through the doors getting bait and tackle...

Re: 280 AI information Blog

Re: Problems with CCI 450s

Steve, The top two cases went bang... The bottom two is the result of trying to rely on neck tension and a jammed bullet to hold the case against the bolt face while fireforming to a dasher. This is a headspace issue ONLY.. This would not be an issue if he created a false shoulder in the neck, befor...

Re: Problems with CCI 450s

The 450's dont have a problem like the Br's any isuses with 450 is probably headspace. I have fired thousands and thousands without a single issue. Those having issues are you full length resizing? My guess is yes and you are getting head space wrong. Chris =D> "PRICELESS" See Equipment a...

Re: Problems with CCI 450s

A member from my club had issues with 450's at a prize meeting, where he had nearly 20 miss fires and tried another bolt before giving it away... He ended up giving me that brick of 450's.. My young bloke has been using them all year in his dasher and hasn't had a single miss fire...
