Re: 22 Cal 85.5 Grain Long Range Hybrid

Hi Geoff. I will be giving them a try when they become available. Specs look good on paper. They could be just the go as I think the 90 grainers are just that bit heavy to be able to get the velocity up enough for any real benefit. Regards Malcolm.

Re: WTB Omark bolt head

Hi saum2. Not sure that there ever was any 308 bolt heads made with the smaller hole, I've never seen one. The later production 223 bolt heads came with the smaller hole. You may have to get your bolt head bushed if needed. I would be interested to know if MAB or Total Solutions ever did 308's with ...

Re: 223 throating/projectile advice needed

BD I am fairly sure that we can now use any projectile up to 91gns in standard and TR but I just can't find the update on the NRAA site. It was there a month or two ago. Perhaps someone smarter than me on a computer can post a link.Regards Malcolm.

Re: 223 throating/projectile advice needed

BD I think most Berger users with 223's use the 80.5 fullbore projectile at present but there is a new 85.5 on the way which looks very promising. If I were making a 223 now I would be looking seriously at setting it up for for that one. Regards Malcolm.

Re: 155gr eld match loads

Hi Mick. Don't know of anyone using them at this stage as they are not an approved projectile for TR or F standard at present as far as I'm aware. You could shoot F Open with them to see how they go and report back to let us know. Regards Malcolm.

Re: Best bore scope

Hi John. The Hawkeye gives the best image of the different types of scopes available as far as I'm concerned. The 17 inch shooting edition with angled eyepiece would be a welcome sight under any Christmas tree. Look it up on the Gradient Lens website, I think the number is HS17-SHOT-AEP. Not sure if...

Very sad news. He was one of the true gentlemen and characters of the sport and one of the most passionate members of the association that you could ever meet. Condolences to Claudia and family. He will be greatly missed. Regards Malcolm.

Re: Help identifing Omark barrel

Hi Mick Most Black Mountain barrels I've seen are marked with made by SAF Lithgow for Black Mountain Rifles. The photo you give seems to show the same outside texture of Black Mountain barrels where they look like a sort of hammer forged finish on the outer surface. Maybe there were some of these th...

Re: Front Plate

Hi Richard. This issue of anything on the boards or mats used under an F standard bipod that can guide the bipod in any way was dealt with and outlawed by the NRAA several years ago. Rule 20.10.1.2 part (b) covers the situation."In all cases the feet of the bipod must be free to slide freely in...

Re: Question for the Omark experts

Chris. I have and still use several Omarks. I don't like having ejectors in target rifles so all of mine have had the ejector springs replaced with very weak ones that still leave it in place but not functional as an ejector. The reason I do this is to leave the design of the action and bolt head un...

Re: Question for the Omark experts

I hope if anyone is loading an Omark to the point that they are flowing brass back into the ejector hole, that they are never at the same end of the mound that I am shooting. Regards Malcolm.

Re: Alpha munitions brass

Now you're on the money Bruce. Consistency shot to shot, minimal outlay for one case, no grizzling about machinegunning, no need for time delay arguments on electronic targets and hugely improved barrel life. Ticks all the boxes, I like it. Regards Malcolm.

Re: Alpha munitions brass

Hi Bruce. Maybe putting into a FLS die might be ok , but I just had a brilliant thought (couple of reds on a cruisey Sunday night). If we all went back to using muzzle loaders problem solved- absolutely zero case variation shot to shot. Problem solved and would save a shitload on cases as well. Rega...
