Re: Electronic targets and new range designs

By keeping the the hundred year old design at north arm, after going full electronic, we were able to to keep shooting after some of the components were pinched. After changing the weights, we could still use paper targets behind the mantlet and keep shooting until the new parts turned up 8 weeks la...

Re: Jongmans action

Um, I don't know how on my phone. But both Matt and Keith commented on how they both had one come through their shops with broken locking lugs on the bolt. That's enough for me.

Re: Jongmans action

Never mind, I just found an old thread on the same subject. Matt and Keith answered the question for me already on it.

Re: How to hit the bullseye at 900 yd?

Yep, good advice from Mr Smith. Even if you can't get others to join in, practice wind and mirage calls yourself. I taught myself by shooting center of target and making a call as to where I thought it hit the target according to conditions for that shot. Once the target came back up, you'll have yo...

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

...The extra cost would have to be coming from your state association as that would be the only variance from what we pay in Queensland. I suspect that Queensland subs would be heavily subsidised by the Association's unique income source, namely the Belmont spoil disposal business. Good on them, bu...

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

Wholly shit, where are you paying $450 a year for membership fees. It costs me about $180 this year, and that was with the NRAA price rise. There is a cheaper option which we offer to new members that have no interest in opm. It's field and rimfire, which gives them club and association membership a...

Re: Loads for 80 gr .223 rem help please?

Hi Graham, I've got a savage model 12 fvss in 223 with a 1:9 x 26" barrel. All factory. I'm running 24.8 grn of 2206h behind 70 grn vld. I switched over to 06h from 2208 because with the shorter barrel I don't beleive it was burning all the powder properly. My thoughts for this is because the b...
