Re: Misfires

The firing pin springs sold by SARA are a stronger heavier duty spring than the originals. I have never had a misfire in any Omark that is properly set up when using one of those. As Keith said it is not legal to use an Omark on the range if it is still fitted with the early small diameter bolt-head...

Re: Affordable bipod options

Hi Willy. Check out the SARA store. They have an F class bipod that I have been using for years in stock for $170.00. They are similar to the Davies. Regards Malcolm.

Re: Labradar Tolerance of Obstructions

Chris. Most of our shooters shoot off a bipod or joypod and the lower height puts the muzzle at about in the centre of the Labradar. The higher setting puts the fullbore muzzles in about the middle as well. Regards Malcolm.

Re: Labradar Tolerance of Obstructions

Chris. You mention issues with the flat base of the Labradar causing it to wobble at times. I never liked the set up for use on our uneven mounds so never considered it when i bought mine. I have made up a tripod which has 2 height settings and a wide footprint and dismantles for compact storage. It...

Re: Labradar Tolerance of Obstructions

Chris. If it is not hard in still conditions to do those one hole groups at 200 yards then why is it that the best group shooters in the world have never been able to achieve it? I am sure there is many on this forum that would be keen to watch you do it and have it verified that all shots have inde...

Re: Labradar Tolerance of Obstructions

Chris. If that's a 4 shot group at 200 yards that you do often with an FTR rifle then I suggest you take up benchrest, as it's way better than the current world record. Regards Malcolm.

Re: Ultra Sonic Cleaners vs Case Tumblers

De-cap the cases and 15 mins in the ultrasonic with hot water and cream of tartar and cases are clean. The water will go black and and you lose sight of the cases (even after only one firing) during this time. Take them out and rinse off and then another run for 15 mins in hot water to finish the jo...

Re: Looking to move to Fstd

Hi robbo1990. You would be best off setting that rifle up for F std. A scope rail with 20 minute taper and scope and rings. You could set it up to shoot off a bipod (cheapest option) or a pedestal rest. You would also need a rear sandbag of some type. Other option would be FTR but a 1 in 12 twist ba...

Re: Labradar trigger sertings

Hi Pablo. I know of another unit that had the same problem and it was returned for a warranty repair. It had a faulty microphone and did not pick up the muzzle blast to trigger the unit. You can tell if it triggers if the orange armed light goes off and then back on as you fire the shot. If this doe...

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: 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...
