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

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.

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.
