I'm a newbie to the sport so interested to learn. If you are lying behind your rifle with the butt into the ...

Re: Copperhead 7mm 183-4 bullets

Have only fired a handful through a straight 284 to obtain some chronograph data, literally about 20 They have a very short bearing surface and require quite a bit less throat length than Berger 180VLD's i usually use in this barrel. They need a good extra 1.5gr of powder to achieve same velocity a...

Re: New Sporter/Hunter Class...is your club promoting it?

It all looks good to me and I like the idea of what they propose. My club would never allow muzzle brakes or magazines to be used, but hopefully there are plenty more progressive clubs who will.

What were people shooting?

There were a few using SAUMs at the longs, but also a few 284s doing well. In the short/mid ranges, there were the usual 6 Dashers doing well and some other usual 6 and 6.5s.

Re: VRA Queen series.

Congratulations Rod Davies, Frans Knox, Dave Phipps and James Corbett in your 2019 VRA Queens win. Looks like the wind gods threw everyone a wobbly for the last 1000. So close to a clean sheet Rod. Where’d you lose them? Congratulations also to grand Agg winners too. Well, what a great 5 days of co...

Re: Electronic Target prices

What about the Ozscore targets made by Geoff Roberts in Australia? What sort of prices are they for a single set up? You might end up saving quite a bit of shipping and have local support?

F class shooter Julian Daley just became Australian A grade trap champion as a newbie

I just heard through the grape vine that Julian Daley has just won the Australian A grade trap championships as a newbie. Julian had only recently bought a shotgun and taken up trap shooting for a bit of fun until the Mackay F class range reopens. Understandably, Julian was a bit too busy to chat wh...

Re: Best binoculars for scoring? (Edit: Now Scope)

If you are going to Vic Queens, I can bring a $2500 top of the line Ziess binoculars, or a $400 Chinese spotting scope and tripod for you to use and you can see which you prefer. If you are scoring for me though, I would rather you use the cheap spotting scope and tripod. If you are after a spotting...

how much freebore is required for the 183 copperheads in a 284 chamber?
bruce.

I am not sure yet as I hope to receive my Copperheads soon. Their bearing surface is a little shorter than the Berger 180 VLDs and Hybrids.
