Re: NRAA Queens

Just looking at the 500 yd results. I haven't been shooting that long- 5 years or so and I remember people getting a round of applause when shooting a 60... At the 500yd day 2 a 60 will get you 18th :shock: A very very competitive group at the nationals!!!! On another note, I'm not a fan of ET's and...

Brad,

Re: NRAA Queens

The field was divided into TR and F class Each group started at the same time. If TR shot first the scope shooters had to wait till TR was all done then we started. F class was ordered in their different classes but no pause between once the shooting started. I think it worked fairly well. The marke...

Re: 25yrd Zeroing target for .223 calibre ?

My 6mm dasher's 25yd zero is close to the 300yd zero, I'd "GUESS" the 223 could be similar.
No guarantees

Re: New stock for my saum

Hi Albert The tuner is an LRP creation, not sure if Matt still makes them. Its a threaded piece of ss with a locking ring, I haven't played with it much but it's there to provide an option should I be at a shoot and the gun goes out of tune. The barrrel is threaded and the tuner hangs past the end o...

New stock for my saum

20170527_100313.jpg

My new Bob Eager stock fitted to the saum.
I saw one of these a while back and was impressed with the look of it so I grabbed this one when it became available.
Shot it for the first time last wed and it tracks well.

Re: 280 AI - Load development - Stage one

Powder preference seems to be a localised thing, I have been using 2209 and BR2's and VLDs jamb or jump. The 280AI has more capacity than the SAUM. Can't give you much more info than that other than I have been very happy with my first 280AI. This can become a blog if you like, no need for appologie...

Re: 280 Ai loads

Hi Grahame,
My first 280AI uses 53.0gns of 2209 behind a 180VLD (jamb or jump)which gave high 2800s
From memory Es was around 15f/s but for whatever reason it shoots great at the longs.
Naturally check the velocity in your barrel.

Re: Dialling for spin drift?

I suppose the scope could be set up slightly off plumb to be a true zero at all ranges??

Re: South Australian State Championships - the "Queens"

Hi All, This event has been very well run and even after being convincingly beaten on several ranges by a school girl with a 223(well done Jascinta !!!) I have no complaints. Marking for this event has been exceptional, maybe this will become the premier non ET queens in Australia? Only 2 ranges to ...

Re: Automatic powder scales.

I use the FX 300 scales with a powder thrower for the initial charge and an electric trickler to add the last few kernels of powder, also have a pen handy to tap a single kernel off the trickler. This can be a surprisingly quick operation with practice. I'd imagine using a thrower is quicker than th...
