Looks like Rod has his act together from first day results. Never ceases to amaze me how well he prepares.

Don't forget the stubby holders! I reckon I'd get half a dozen.

Re: Victorian Queens Series - 2018

There was a session at 500 the afternoon before the leadup for zeroing etc last time I was there a couple of years ago.

I think this would be a quite reasonable ask to give the organisers some confidence and make it easier to make sure that the event is a success.
The more I hear about it the keener I am to attend.

Re: Looking for feedback

Pretty sure flying would be out for me so I would have to drive too so I'd be much more likely to attend if like Mike said it was tacked onto the Queen's. Maybe in a similar way to the F Class teams were included this year. Great initiative and definitely an event I would like to attend.

Re: Australia vs New Zealand F-Open Teams Match

Interesting piece of history.
In 1802 the Kiwis invented the condom using a sheep's lower intestine.
In 1822 the Aussies somewhat refined the idea by taking the intestine out of the sheep first.

Re: F Class Competition in Australia

F Standard is what it is and has a very big following compared to our other f class disciplines. I prefer F Open but am always impressed how well the Standard shooters do.

Re: F Class Competition in Australia

Hi Cory I dont think you can put the F Standard genie back in the bottle without upsetting a lot of shooters that have invested a lot of time, effort and money into developing very sofisticated setups. I agree with Spencer's comparison to a restricted FOpen class. There are plenty of lower cost rifl...

Re: 308 Palma depriming problem

Remove the depriming rod from the die by backing off the hex shaped collet screw on top of the die then chuck the rod in a drill. Spin the rod and grind down the pin with something. I have used a diamond sharpener but a bit of emery cloth backed up with a flat ruler or file would do the same. Keep g...

Re: Bisley style shooting

Perhaps some Queens organisers would be willing to include some ranges in Bisley format in the Lead Up. I would suggest the second day of the Lead Up to begin with but maybe more. They usually don't have great attendances and might benefit from the change. Shooters are already there and no new event...

I would love it. It would be great to see.


I would like it as well. It would certainly add a point of difference to the normal Queens formats.

Re: Borescope

I use a Lyman Borecam that I find does a great job. Excellent for seeing how clean the barrel is and its condition once you get used to interpreting what you're looking at. Haven't used the others so can't really compare but this is easy to use and can capture picture for future reference etc.
