Re: Match rifle and NSW queens

Not sure if this has been discussed but they are both on at the same time - bit of a bummer as they both interest me... I'll probably pick the queens and another chance to irritate Mr Davies :D While I’m sure you will find plenty of opportunities to irritate me, I too am disappointed that 2 of my (...

Re: WA Pinjar Range , energy limits ?

If you conform to the same limits as Belmont like you would for the QRA and National Queens you will be fine. Thanks Brad , I'll work on my 2930 fps load . It's a shame as I have worked up a 3015 fps load for 180 hybrids. I think I'll struggle to put into competition somewhere to put it to the test...

What do you think 180s would do?

Come apart from excessive RPM once the barrel got fouled or hot from a long shot string.

Re: Reloader 16

Hi Rod I can't seem to find AR- Comp - didn't search it but who makes it? I have mucked about with a few others lately but no success for me in F/TR over 2208 as yet? W760; CFE223 and I have some PowerPro2000 to trial? I just see another listed under Hodgon available ex Winchester - LeveRevolution ...

Well that’s not too much of a bad problem to have.

Shane, is AR-comp available in Oz yet?
It will likely be handy for many cartridges we use as well.

Re: Another Aussie world champion

Great news. Does anyone have any more news on this. A young Aussie bloke winning a 50BMG World Championship, Fantastic.

I will likely be shooting a 50 BMG at the next Warraknabeel shoot, hopefully he can give me some tips on shooting the big 50.

Re: Varying powder charge summer/winter?

Thanks rod. Did a little digging online and in extreme tests (below freezing to high 40’s) RL 15 looks to be about 3 times more sensitive than 2208. About 1.6fps per degree vs 0.5 However that’s a basic interpolation of minimum and maximum and assuming the change is linear. It would appear between ...

Re: WTB extractor for Musgrave action.

Hi Rod. Extractors between a mauser 98 bolt and the musgrave are all but the same We have two musgraves. One is the same, one has a more tapered end. I would think it would take maybe a little grinding to adjust at the most. Cheers Adrian 20180630_141332.jpg 20180630_141418.jpg Great, thanks for th...

Re: Successful 6mm for long range

I would be keen to see how the 6x47 goes when you move up to the slightly heavier 110gn and 115gn bullets. Their BC is closer to what the 6.5s and 7mm usually run. Has anyone here done much with the 110 and 115gn pills in a faster twist barrel?
