Re: F Class Competition in Australia

I understand that there are some rifles with the tighter twists they are mainly sold as a long range hunter or combo type. It was more a general remark as many are much slower as mentioned 1.12 used to be the norm. Given they are again normally shooting the 55gr range projectiles. Yes again not rea...

Great to see a longer range, longer shot string OPM being put on instead of the usual 10 shots at 3,5,600 With you there Rod,though the shorter range ones have their place historically and with some of the shorter ranges we have.Not long home from Stawell,where the Australian and Victorian Match Ri...

Re: ULTRA-LONG RANGE CHALLENGE

I noticed that a few didn't shoot 1500. Is that because they ran out of elevation? The main reason was that some of the competitors were Match Rifle shooters having Australian Team selection training on Friday,some I know had to return home for work and couldn't stay for the whole time,I only know ...

Re: Australia vs New Zealand F-Open Teams Match

Graham,
It is welcome news to hear that Australia has a FTR team as well as the F Open team,you will enjoy shooting there.
Rather than go back in your hole,as you mentioned,I think you should be an official correspondent.
