I have a 10 kg electronic kitchen scale,you may need to weigh the bipod separately,take some time and care weighing as the shown weight can vary if the rifle being weighed is not on the balance point.Please leave yourself some leeway as the persons manning the official scales may not be as generous ...

Re: WTB 308 Barnard F standard set up

My advice,for what is worth,go and buy a new Barnard set up by a good gunsmith and go from there,there are the very occasional bargain in used gear,but not often,all barrels wear out and have to be replaced,either sooner or later,I don’t think in the overall scheme,if you stay in shooting that there...

Re: Scope Advise - 900yd MOA

There was a time when some of us were pleased to have/afford a Leupold,the 8ˋ5—25 x50 LR,tons of elevation and windage,surely good enough when matched to a Howa.Perhaps there is a reason for FFP reticules,but for F class I have no idea why.

Re: Practical Rifle traing course

No idea,as I haven’t shot Practical Rifle,however if you are interested in the match I would go and see what it is about,with a bit of luck you will learn something and importantly you will meet participants in the match.
