Re: New F Open Rifle

Hi Frank.

Are you using the new Silver Mountain SOLO? The ones with 8 Sensors? Just curious. Those big pills sure do have some energy down range. They are about going about 200 FPS faster at the target than the 7's I shoot.

How was the recoil to manage?

Re: Nraa queens

Thanks for the feed back! I did watch one of your shoots Craig and from memory it was about 3/4 X ring elevation with a tad more sideways movement... Yep it is a shame Tim. I almost feel like putting in a worn out barrel until I can lean to shoot again...........oww look there goes another fluffy c...

Re: Nraa queens

Hi Tim, Wind was down range for the 900 & 1000 from about 11 through to 1 O'Clock. Peter C, had about 1 to 1.5 MOA when he shot, but I had from 1/4 to 3/4. (Yes there is or was squadding, but it is a little messed up come the final range, not that it had a bearing on the results, IMO) Yes, bar t...

Re: New F Open Rifle

Sweet rig Frank. 2900 FPS with a large pill is sure moving. Cannot wait to see how it performs.
You should have a couple of presents turning up this week from Fedex to go with it.

Keen to hear your thoughts on the Hornady and what performance you can get out of them

Talk soon.

No pre lead up banter ? C'mon Josh, we want photo's ...... Yes, very disappointing. No banter, slander, sledging, rumours, stories or scandals. I’m sure there are some people in FNQ who have a computer AND know how to write. If anywhere was going to have scandals and gossip, I though FNQ would be t...

Re: 2017 FCWC - THANKS to Rutland Cup Teams SPONSORS

No Just tabled. What happens Alan is that it is tabled. Then there is discussion and debate over it, then a vote is conducted in 18 months. My opinion is that it will "get up" at the next meeting. America and U.K. were behind it. I am not sure about the NRAA, as I was only in attendance as...

Re: 2017 FCWC - THANKS to Rutland Cup Teams SPONSORS

It is all a mute point for 2021 anyway. Proposal was table during the ICFRA meeting to have the Rutland Matches a World Championship 4 man / person event. This to me made perfect sense. Australia can win both 4 and 8 member teams events. Gold for everyone.

Re: North QLD Queens

Well done to all the Winners, especially Peter Smith. Good to see Marty, Phillip, Peter Carter and Stephen right there.

From what I heard though, Marty had a handy cap, as he had no sleep for two days due to Laz snoring so much. :lol:

Re: BERGER 7MM 175GR XLD

I won the national in 2015 with them, and the Presidents and the Grand. Worked for me. Mind you I have not used them since, as they did mot like the 5r barrels compared to the 4 groove.
