Re: The Future

Whilst the shooting fraternaty seems to spend a lot of time moaning about our shooting laws, why not turn that on its head. We have the safest shooting laws in the world, even Howard says so. Why not promote one of the safest sports in the country as a tourist attraction? Come, stay, shoot. Take a l...

Re: The Future

You don't have to 'build' anything Trevor. I live on a mine site, it's been here 15 years but there isn't a permanent accomodation structure on site. If you've got power and water you've got everything you need. It's not really for the members to use, it's for guests to use. The ones who come and gi...

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

What's 'footy'?
If it's rugby league, rugby union, AFL or football, I'll be on the range.

Re: 155gr bullet choice for 1:13 twist

You aren't wrong Peter. When heavy projectiles came into FTR (which isn't so long ago) the 200 needed a 1:10 and the 215 a 1:9. Now the 200 is a 1:11 the 215 a 1:10 and even the 230 a 1:10. I may just revisit that 230 with a 1:10 and see what happens. The Berger site puts the 155.5 in a 1:13 and I'v...

Re: ET Targets for Nationals

So does the Queens finish on the Sunday or the Monday next year? Monday 30th Sept being a public holiday in 19.
Is it 7 straight days of shooting. Mon Tue teams. Wed Thurs Lead up. Fri, Sat Sun Queens, or take advantage of the public holiday and push the Queens series back a day and take Wed off?

Re: The Future

Where is the “grand idea”, where is the “vision”? I think this is where the problem lies, there is none. There is, “We need to grow the sport”, grow it into what exactly? It’s pretty hard to get somewhere when you don’t know where you’re going. Here are some observations of my shooting career. Facil...

Re: Copperhead projectile approval?

I'd be more than happy to buy Copperhead projectiles, but in order for me to do that I would need to get a reply from the business that sells them. Twice contacted, zero replies. I asked for a couple of trial packs earlier in the week. Got an email yesterday confirming, just waiting for account det...

Re: Copperhead projectile approval?

So, I've been trawling the boards a bit and noticed 3 topics that might roll into 1 idea. "The future" as I see it calls, foremost, for the community to act,,,,as a community. Being "general-less" as Bob Eager aptly put it, we 'troops' are over the top and on our own. In "Gi...

Re: Kapooka march out Nov 16

Thanks Mike, it would have been good to catch up.
I think ACT Queens will mean anyone I'm likely to know will be away from home.
All good, the Golf View looks convenient.

I have 2 of his. 1 drops into a Barnard mount, the other is an LMB Ultra which is shorter and let's me put a parallel barrel on a FTR rifle, thanks to some wizardry from Bob Eager.

Kapooka march out Nov 16

My son has his march out on Nov 16th. Yes, it clashes with the ACT Queens, which is bad planning.
Just wondering if anyone from Wagga could recommend accommodation.

Re: Wtb 6.5mm 130 berger vld

I have 1 box of 130, I'm guessing they're VLD.
Where abouts are you.
Yours for $50 + shipping
Aren't you going to be a bit pissed if they work?
