Re: Is the .284 obsolete now?

Before we start analysing WHY those average scores are different it would be prudent to determine IF they're different. I'm not sufficiently motivated to do the number crunching but Student's t would be a good starting point.

Re: Upgrading my 308 Dies

I would caution you against the Redding Comp dies. (1) Though you might get away with it if you stay with TR/FS loadings, The die does not respond well to seating long projectiles, even more so if a compressedish load is involved. This hasn't been my experience. I think I seat my 210s further out t...

Changing topics within a sub-forum

Under the previous setup you could tap "previous topic" or "next topic" to move around within a sub-forum, e.g. Equipment & Technical. Has this gone now or have I just not found it? I'll confess it took me a LONG time to notice this but, having discovered it, I grew to like i...

Re: World Fclass Team

NRAA needs to ensure the unsuccessful have received their notification before going public. In the age of email this has surely happened and there's no reason for it not being on the website now - wasn't the last time I looked.

Re: To hold or dial wind??

In relation to team shooting, I have experienced a few different methods, and think the coach should adjust the knobs, because instructing the shooter to hold off has too much risk of communication mistakes. Eliminates communication errors but introduces the possibility of winding the wrong way. In...

Re: Flying domestically with a firearm

I'm bit late with this but....

The check in staff often don't know their own airline's policies. I've found it helpful to have a printout of the relevant sections from the company web site.

But Mike H is getting different readings on the same case. If he uses his Hornady gauge he gets 1.618 which is the same as Jase gets. If he uses Chris's gauge made by Adam he gets the correct 1.630.

Re: Reloading from the shoulder - different Stock/Action com

Gerard, I'd question the need to keep your face on the check piece while reloading. !Peter! There are two schools of thought on this. As I recall Spencer Dunstall came down on the side of rebuilding the position for each shot in one of his ATR articles a while ago. James Corbett does this and it do...

At 1200 yards that's roughly the same degree of difficulty as the ICFRA target at 1000. Can't remember the exact figures.

Re: International FCWC teams and funding?

I think this is important for the NRAA and the sport but I'm only interested trying to help those that want to help themselves. So far very few of those that this topic is currently affecting have commented. I'm not currently affected but have been in the past. My preference has been to put the mon...
