Re: Rifle weighing scales.

I have a 10 kg electronic kitchen scale,you may need to weigh the bipod separately,take some time and care weighing as the shown weight can vary if the rifle being weighed is not on the balance point.Please leave yourself some leeway as the persons manning the official scales may not be as generous...

Rifle weighing scales.

Any better suggestions than bathroom scales for checking rifle weight after swapping barrels etc?
Kitchen scales are too light I doubt the accuracy of the bathroom scales. Something someone picked up online perhaps?

Re: Grains or grams?

I reckon keep it simple when weighing powder and stick to grains even if to just prevent mistakes. I'd rather rely on my scales than my maths.

Re: How would a Prize Meeting go on grand final Day.

Depends who's playing. It's good to support your favourite club and also enjoyable watching the Pies get rolled by a few points.
I would rather be at a prize meeting though.

Re: The Future

Tim I hope you do put yourself forward for nomination to the NRAA board and I hope others do too . With three vacancies it is a great opportunity for FClass shooters to get better representation and to get people in that can take the sport forward. Especially important with Bob P resigning.

Re: Given Current Component Availability...

I already use Aussie brass (Bertram) brass so am interested to see how Ken's projectiles would go in a 284. Pretty good I would reckon.

Re: One Scope on Multiple Rifles

Alex As Alan has said with good rails no problem. I don't use quick release rings just the standard picatinny vortex type and removing and replacing or swapping a scope over takes minutes. Change of point of impact for me is not noticeable.

Re: Does a plastic tip , mean I can get away with a slower twist ?

GMan the Hornady website shows the BC details for that bullet at various velocities for both 7.5 twist and 8.75 twist and the 7.5 figures are much better so maybe better stabilised. 9 twist would have a BC bit lower so less stable? Hope this helps

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