Re: Bisley style shooting

I'd be happy to pay a deposit for such a comp.
One thing to note is that the next FCWC will be shot Bisley style in South Africa.
Another reason to run such comps for those i interested in going.
As suggested before this needs to be open to all disciplines for max attendance.

Re: Mastering velocity ES 284W

Another thing to consider is carbon build up with your round count.
If you can get someone experienced to check with a borescope it may need a de carbon.
Appologies if I'm telling you nothing new

Re: Bisley style shooting

If shooting fast isn't your thing then FTR has a natural inbuilt delay.
I personally don't want to gear up for 30 sec matches but neither will I run down anyone who does, all within the rules.
Should Bisley matches become available I will be very interested to attend.

Re: Bisley style shooting

After shooting Bisley style for the FCWC I'm hooked! The 45 sec rule applys and in my experience the ones I have been partnered with shot quick enough to not be a concern. Not too much chasing the spotter and each shot can be a sighter in rough conditions. There's a few of us would like to have the ...

NRAA travel insurance

Hi All, I had an unfortunate incident while in Canada recently which resulted in a damaged march scope. Prior to travel we mostly agreed that the SSAA insurance was best with only $100 excess for a claim, I have been a continuous member of the SSAA for 30 or so years and it so happened that my membe...

Re: Rear plate?

Back to the rear plate. I have a rear plate made of 10mm aluminium with grip tape on top and 3 threaded holes for my adjustable spikes which I have used for years. Fast forward to the FCWC and they are not permitted so most of us opted for a 12mm plate. I glued some non slip rubber stuff top and bot...

Re: 6x47 or 6mm 250AI?

Hey Geoff What velocities are you getting with the 115s? Bruce - the slr might be a tad big for string shooting? I understand it's all a compromise and there's nothing wrong with the 2 -284 barrels I could be using but I'm keen to try a 6mm exclusively for a while and might bravely (foolishly) attem...

Re: 6x47 or 6mm 250AI?

John,
The 6 creedmoor is also a contender, just wanted to hear some opinions about primer size preference as this will be used mostly at the longs where ES - SD really matters.
I'd like to try the sierra 110s and maybe 115s
I see berger list a 1:7 twist for the 105 HYB but most are using 1:8?

6x47 or 6mm 250AI?

Hi All,
Maybe the question should be large or small primer?
I'm wanting to build a 6mm with a bit more umph than my dasher.
Does anyone have experience with a 6/250 AI?
Seems it should be a similar capacity to the 6x47 but with a big primer.

On a brighter note, Old Qubec city is a great place.
