Re: Awesome stuff Australia

Great work all around, they really had a great depth of talent, from the juniors to the vets and everywhere in between. Whatever they have done this time has certainly worked and I hope they can follow up on this success in the future.

Steve Negus got the gold with Mitch getting Silver. With Mitch beating his old man, I reckon he has a bright future in the sport

Re: Events with manual targets 2019

Tim, You cannot go past the trial and tribulation that is - Rosedale Rifle Club. Guaranteed to provide equalising conditions that run true, both in mirage and wind. Great hospitality, great food, and great prizes. Needless to say, we only run manual targets, with fast and efficient markers. We have...

Re: Copperhead 184gr VLD

I’m hoping to chronograph these bullets this weekend. I doubt just loading what works with your 180VLD and hoping will work Bearing surface is different, also a lot more airspace in the case as bullet seats further forward. Yes, will likely need a touch more powder to keep the same speed (node). I ...

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

You are saying you have a spare barrel, what twist is it? If it is 10", then the 200s which everyone else mentioned would be good. ( I am trying the 200 Jacks which are available from QRA Qstore). The 200 Jacks and the latest 200 Sierras have better BC than the 215s and will have slightly less ...

Re: Thank You
