Re: Looking for feedback

Jase, Sounds good. One thing to consider might be to change to 20 shots for Bisley, and 15 shots for string? 20 shot shoots are not kind to barrels, but Bisley style may slow things down somewhat. Alan, Is there any solid documentation to support the belief that twenty shot strings are measurably m...

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: Bisley style shooting

Cant speak for others, but this TR shooter is very keen :) Only by trying this for a while will we see the value (or otherwise). Providing of course that each shot is timed, which I understand it is.

Re: ULTRA-LONG RANGE CHALLENGE
