Re: Tuned barrel

pete, you are making good points here. all things in balance. take here means you have to give there. and whatever, the bottom line is technique. again, no free lunches, as even the best equipment will not negate poor technique. there exist people who think the whole thing is ruled by a formula, and...

Re: another discipline

why do we keep thinking of new disciplines when the promotional arm of the nraa is doing such a good job of promoting current disciplines by professional means?

Re: Tuned barrel

Maybe it's like this : a stiff stock will tolerate more handling variations in terms of it staying in a more inert state than a flexible stock i.e. the flexible one more easily gets loaded with stored energy. No problems there, until u release the shot. The more inert platform/stock will behave...

Re: NRAA QUEENS / Australian Championships

jasmay,
we need to learn from our mistakes in order to not repeat them.
embracing new disciplines while avoiding the reality of the ones we have now is a mistake.
and then not promoting them will send them down the gurgler like not promoting the ones we have now seems to be doing.

Re: NRAA QUEENS / Australian Championships

All state Queens are generally in decline. Maybe in overall numbers. Just curious though how numbers are going in each state for F class over the last few years? Since 2014 numbers in F class in each state have remained almost the same. Numbers vary slightly each year up or down but when you look a...

Re: Hornady ATIP 230GN 30cal

years ago Hornady made the original amax with aluminium tips. then they brought out amax with plastic tips and told us why plastic was superior. now we see the return of aluminium and are told it is worth more money, and packaged and priced accordingly. who do you turn to at a time like this? I see ...

Re: 2206H or BM1 in .223 Rem?

I use bm2 in 223 with 50 gn bullets, and it works well for that application.
I think I remember trying it with 80 gn bullets, and finding it a bit fast burning compared to other powders for best velocity.
bm2 from memory is slower than bm1, and seems to be similar to imr 3031 in burning rate.

Re: ACT Authorized Instructor - Canberra Queens

well that is good for expanding the sport.
here in s.a. you can"t go in the queens if you are not an nra member.
a nice insular way to keep the sport smaller as well.
