Re: The Future

Something to think about Trevor and others envolved at the VRA which I think would be helpful... Firstly new membership applications need to be made easier... This whole/current system is not inclusive to new members... Currently new members have to find an "excepting club" once a new mem...

Re: The Future

General asking his soldiers to go over the top and see what they can do, and if they survive, "let me know how you got on". That Sir, is without question the most accurate analogy I have heard made with regards to this topic. Generally, in my limited experience, everything is done 'at clu...

Re: The Future

Well it's been mentioned a few times now. Seats on the NRAA board. Am I the only one on here considering that? I was also under the impression muzzle brakes were allowed in Service rifle now. Is that correct? It's a fair call that laying to the side of one of those isn't a pleasant experience so why...

Re: The Future

Thinking about the reality of the situation, we have an oppertunity now with 3 NRAA positions up for grabs. As noted however, who is willing to take on those roles. I am seriously considering it, but I'm unsure what sort of job I can do. I have a full time job, a family and live in North QLD. With t...

Re: Don’t throw out your worn out 6.5 mm barrel!!

It's an old true flight. It's threaded for a Barnard P though so might not be enough left if it needs a full rechamber? You might get away with it if you can just reduce the thread diameter to go in your action. If you have to chop it there wont be much over 24".

Re: Don’t throw out your worn out 6.5 mm barrel!!

I put my prs barrel on a Tikka action with a terminator t3 brake and will be dropping it into an Austec arms chassis, if it ever arrives. The 6.5slr is just a long necked 260 really. A bit bigger than the creedmore but I've sized palmer brass for it. Sorry gman, that doesn't help you get your barrel...

Re: Don’t throw out your worn out 6.5 mm barrel!!

6.5 SLR is the way to go. Gives you 6.5 x284 performance from a short action and no need for the man bun :D
Matt P has the reamer and resize your 308 cases for brass . Widden gun works for dies.

Fire formed a couple of cases and sent them to Lee for a collet die.

Re: Responsibility When Shipping

To answer the original question, responsibility lies with the sender. The receiver, unless they posted it to themself, has no contract with the carrier. The seller has a contract with you to supply a rifle and under Australian consumer law, if it is not fit for purpose or substantially deviates from...

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

If you take the data from Hornady and punch it into the Berger calculator you are compromised GMan! It says you are only marginally stable (that's not news for most of us). Things may get a bit wobbly as you push out further, with cold weather compounding the issue. With all that said the maths some...

Re: Area 419 Auto-Trickler Base

Fair call. I was just questioning the requirement for the "upgrades". From what you say you already had bloody awesome consistancy and accuracy, which is great news. I didn't want to invest this sort of money on top notch gear to find I actually need to plough in more to get the top notch ...

Re: Another Aussie world champion

Iirc it is the 50BMG that is specified as prohibited in QLD. Theoretically that means other 50 cals aren't, but good luck. I know a few people with 338s but there are a few hoops to jump through to get one, membership of 2 clubs that can cater for it being one of those hoops! One might try to get a ...
