Re: Rifle weighing scales.

Calibrated by professional weights and scales company at a cost to the VRA. Checked annually before the Queens series. Tolerances (I think +- 1 gram) are listed on the certificate issued which is available on the range for anybody to see.

Re: Rifle weighing scales.

I use the scales at my local butchers. Check first but the advantage is that they are around at 6:00am when nobody else is about. Of course you need to develop a relationship with them but you get to eat much better quality meat that way than by buying at the supermarkets.

Re: Military rifle enthusiasts Queensland

Thanks Scott, he doesn’t really want to give them away but he wants a good home for them. I don’t think money is a real issue

Re: nraa funding of overseas shooting

There is Government money available for those who are selected in overseas teams but generally you have to apply for it. If shooters (whether TR or F-Class) are going to sit back and wait for the gravy train then they can forget it. Start with contacting your State Sport and Rec department and then ...
