Re: NRAA Sub Committees

josh, an easy blow to strike. as a member of nraa, and one who has put a lot of thought into these matters, I have as much right as any other member to express an opinion. to some, the board is "in charge", or "in control". this has been the tendancy in the past as I see it. it w...

Re: NRAA Sub Committees

craig, sorry if this offended. offence was not intended. as you know, I have posted many ideas about where the nraa can improve. these include raising money through an online store that starts selling things like hats, which promote the organization. treating our disciplines and the organization as ...

Re: NRAA Sub Committees

still no sub committees for membership finance promotion of disciplines raising the profile of nraa. what we see is more of the same while the ship both sinks and burns at the same time. the subjects just mentioned do not seem to come into the nraa culture, and as such should probably be better hand...

Re: Just starting out

ben g, you make a good point re the sauer rifle. it is a hunting rifle. as such not very suited to shoot alongside fclass and tr rifles past 300 yds when mounted with a proper hunting scope. maybe heliduck would be better off with a hybrid (target/sniper) rifle for this job, and get the sauer for re...

Re: Trigger questions

I have used jewell triggers on a m70 win and Dakota 76 actioned hunting rifles for over 20 yrs, as well as an fclass rifle. all I have ever done is give them a yearly squirt with shellite. never missed a beat. those first 2 have been in all sorts of conditions and not often loved. interestingly they...

Re: BJD-HBC 155g Projectiles

Not very happy with mine weights go as far as 156.9. :oops: herein lies a common problem with Australian industry. they often fail to go the full mile. just that bit further and we would have a lot of world class products here. with such things as bullets, near enough is not always good enough. bru...

Re: Hornady A tip Bullets

trav, I remember the silvertip. if it were a soft point it would have had a huge amount of lead exposed. but this lead was covered in tin. this had the effect of giving a bit of initial penetration followed by almost blowup. I used them in100 gn for 25/06 and 130 gn 270. I would rate those bullets i...

Re: New Sporter/Hunter Class...is your club promoting it?

bad primer, many of us have held the dream of feeding other discipline shooters into fclass and also hopefully t.r. the hunter thing has been tried by many, some with more success than others. many of us have tried pilching benchrest shooters and silhouette shooters as well. open days have been trie...

Re: New Sporter/Hunter Class...is your club promoting it?

I suspect some here misunderstood my previous post here. the concept of this subject is undoubtedly a good one. the point I tried to make is this. the hunting world is quite a different one than the long range target one. this world exists, and people within it equip themselves for it according to w...

Re: New Sporter/Hunter Class...is your club promoting it?

the rules doom this new discipline to fail in its aim. the intent is to attract hunters, yet no attempt has been made to understand what hunters use. mention has been made here of limiting scope power to 25x, yet a true hunting rifle will rarely have a scope that goes up to 10x. hunting scopes are a...

Re: Hornady A tip Bullets

willow,
19 shots is not a statistically valid amount to be meaningful if divided up into different seating depths.
frank must have lucked on a load to make the statement he did.
