Re: .308 F-Open/F/TR Projectiles

What twist is the barrel?
1:12 will run the jugs
1:11 200s to 215s
1:10 for the 230s.

I'd suggest you find out what projectiles are available, you might end up with Nosler or Hornady.

Magnetospeed V3 $500

Perfect working condition, all the bits, hard case, ready to go.
Very little use, it has some powder marks on the bayonet, pretty hard to avoid them. Other than that its as new.
$500 + shipping.

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

My thought is to open our ranges to the broadest group then see any extra comps evolve from them. That is possibly the most well constructed thought so far. Agreed. I was initially thinking that the new discipline needs to be competative, but that means being restrictive and doing so with no data. ...

Re: Lee Collet Die solution for 284.

Lee make custom collet dies Steve. I recently got one for the 6.5 SLR. Email them, they send you an order form. Send it back with 2 fire formed cases and 1 of your prefered projectiles and they make the die to fit and send it back with a bullet seater as well (i don't use it either). Just remind the...

Re: Magnetospeed

I have a hard case V3 sitting doing nothing ( not due to an upgrade, it just doesnt get used).
I don't think I'd be able to meet the "reasonable price" of a Sporter though.
PM me if you're interested Mozzie

Re: Benchmark 8208 / 155.5 / 308 FTR

Hi James, I'll leave Dave to deal with the loading side of things. Far more experience in his tool bag than mine. With regards to doing load development off a rest or bipod. Go with the bipod. The rifle reacts very differently and you will get different results. Also don't do your final load tuning ...

Re: Brass prep tasks- case volume, primer pockets et al

Thanks for the replies guys, food for thought for sure. I switched to 2209 in the 308 because i had been trialing vhit 550 and found it reduced recoil. When we lost the supply of vhit i went to 2209 and it just ended up compressed. Like you Bruce, when seating 215s it tries to push the bullet out an...

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

Give this a thought, Our brand is long range target shooting, we are trying to create a class which we don't have that attracts shooters.. You only need the one class like Fsd with two grades(Varmint/Tactical class).. Most Varmint/tactical rifles are similar in ballistics put a weight limit of 8kg ...

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

I was under the impression that serving military can wear cam on the range. If thats not the case someone had best tell Don, I'll bring popcorn for that, cos i reckon it will be a great show!

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

Can someone please tell me why we are calling this ‘varmint’ Class? Last time I looked a varmint was an American word for any furry bloody animal. Please, let’s be original...and Australian. Geez. Probabaly because varmint rifles are the long range hunting version of rifle models put out by most ma...

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

Well my comments to George match almost exactly with your proposal Alan. I said no rear support but a light weight bag isn't unreasonable. I also addressed the scope issue but more on practical terms than financial. Varmit shooting requires a target acquisition ability that high power scopes comprom...

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

Maybe the bigger question, and I know it's been a topic before but should "brakes" be allowed on our ranges.. With the proposed class being named varmint and tactical i feel muzzle brakes should be allowed. The draft rules don't exclude them and my understanding is that there is no blanke...

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

No magazines, rear bag and 8kg are my main concerns. The 8kg in particular. Thats only a pound shy of a Bren gun and that's no walkaround gun. Well i didn't like walking around with it anyway. NZ have the limit at 4.5kg, with no rear support at all. Barrel length also seems a bit long for what is su...
