Re: You don't need a scope to get a good score

Congratulations to that man.
A good achievement for any "F" Open shooter. An excellent achievement for a T/R. shooter.
Well done.
Trevor.

Re: NECK SIZING

Hi twotwothree, With my 6.5 x 47 I size about half of the neck. This is all the length that the bearing surface of my projectiles utilise. Any more is only working more of the case than needed. I set the shoulder bump to just touch the shoulder after the second firing of the cases. This also stops e...

Re: RECOIL and THE BLOEMING CASE

as an aside to this topic, are the 150 M/K available here yet. and where. My enquiries a month ago at 3 outlets advised that the Aust. importer had no plans of importing in the near future.
Cheers,

Re: F Class Competition in Australia

One must remember that some of the "other fees" goes towards insurance cover which is an association expense not club expense. If there was no head body organisation to administer our sport we would not have one. There are expenses to do this so other than club fees have to be paid. For wh...

Re: Norma 6.5mm 130 gr diamond line

Earlier in the year Ken sent me samples of his new 135 & 140 gr. V.L.D. projectiles. I shot them in my 6.5 x 55Rogue in F open and they shot very well. I shot both with my standard load I use with the Lapua 139's. I thought the 140's shot a little better than the 135's but I put that down to no ...

Re: ADI POWDERS IN THE UK

I could not agree more. A utter load of rubbish. Next primers will have the same problem. I wonder when Aussie!!!??? greens will pick up on this and try to have it implemented here?

Re: WTB: ex Shadetree Barrel Tuners

Hi Jasmay, Thanks for that input. A few years ago when I started playing with the Purdy system on rim-fires I corresponded with him about using on C/F and he came back suggesting 17th. or above and I found that 19 or 21 worked. Will give the 7th. a try and see what happens. For barrel lengths I have...

Re: WTB: ex Shadetree Barrel Tuners

Hi Jasmay,
I have been playing with tuners for a few years using the Purdy PRX system. I believe Huntsman use the same system on their tuners for rim-fire rifles. Do you use the formula supplied by Huntsman which I think is the 9th. harmonic, or do you use a different harmonic.
Cheers,
Trevor.

Re: Several primers not showing much pin strike

On the subject of primers. I have a carton of Federal GM210M in which there are some primers with a yellow compound and not the usual red colour. Lot # 2G220. Has any one seen any of these. The yellow ones are not used.
Cheers,

Re: F-Class World Championships 2017

Go and get them boys. Show them the Aussies can do it twice in a row. Good shooting and may the wind gods and bit of luck go your way. Hope to get some results when I get to Narromine Tuesday P.M.
All the best, and Carter, pull your finger out, I expect good things from you.

Re: Carbon remover

I don't think the ordinary engine cleaners work as well as the outboard ones do. That has been my experience with them. Tried a lot of those when G.M Engine top clean was stopped being sold. Once I got hold of outboard cleaners I had something that worked again. Yes I found that the carbon coming ou...
