Re: ACT Queens

Congrats to Matt Paroz for taking out F Open, pipping Peter Merriman and Ben Goodwin. I'm still waiting for results to trickle in for the other disciplines.

Re: Best 6mm pills

I have ended up going to the Copperheads. I use the 103s in my 6BRA, 6Dasher and 6x47, but use the 95gn Copperhead in my 6BR. The Fly shooters and 1000yd BR shooters like the 103 Copperheads as well. Good ballistics, very uniform and seem to like some jump, so don't need jamming.

I will not stand here and accept these allegations.

Let me take a seat first, we could be here a while.

Looking forward to tomorrow.


I will see if I can talk a few blokes into coming down with me from NSW next year.

Thanks everyone. The first I heard about it was when Matt range me the day after the presentation was held.

Re: High power scopes and NQ mirage!!

I have found there are two distinct groups of shooters. Those who see mirage and those who don't. Those who do see mirage will be the ones, who at shoots will be talking about how they couldn't see the target at 55-60x like some were using, so wound back to 15-20X. They often seem to be the people w...

Re: FCWC - 2021

Yes, if they hear about the team all using 28 Noslers they will all want one. I thought you said the team will be shooting 6mm wssm and those new 120gn Copperheads at 4000fps that have greater BC than a .338 edge ? :shock: :shock: And dont tell anyone about the new secret FTR projectile we are usin...

Re: Varying powder charge summer/winter?

Going from what I have seen at work heating large bits of steel on earthmoving gear with pin and bearing bores, I would agree that Tims theory has some merit when it comes to barrel heat from firing (but not ambient temps). The last time I heated a fairly large casting with a bearing bore in it was ...

Re: Ken from Copper head

September last year Ken sent me some trial packs of the135 & 140's from his new dies to try in my 6.5 x 55 Rogue. Both shot as well as I could on the days that I shot them. As I did not do any load development for the owing to limited numbers, I shot the 140's with the load I normally use behin...

Re: Ken from Copper head

I cant help with the 140s, but I am using his 130s in my new 6.5x47 and am very happy with them.
I am certainly keen to try his new 184gn 7mm pills when they come out.
