Re: New F Open Rifle

Wow, that carbon fibre stock looks bloody good!

What caliber is the rifle (if it’s not rude to ask)?

Thanks

Re: Reloading Equipment

Try chrisw91 (CCW Engineering) on this site...he makes a press that looks pretty good. I have been very happy with the cleaning rods he produces. Support a fellow shooter and Aussie made. I just use Lee dies: neck sizing & collet die produce good results; projectile seating is a bit fiddle to se...

Re: New Bushnell Tactical Elite Scopes for F Class

I really loved my Bushnell Tactical Elite...until I looked through a Nightforce (and since a Sightron and a March). My main issue was not value for money but the fact that my 6-24 x 50 just ran out of focus adjustment after 300metres. There was hardly any movement between 300 and infinity. I had a l...

Re: 6.5 Creedmore - anyone?

Thanks for the info. I’ll get some 2209 to start with then. Managed to get some Nosler RDF 140s reasonably cheap (bc G1 .658) but need to wait for the rifle to arrive. Went with the Creedmoor as opposed to any other 6.5 as it is a factory rig. Wanted a versatile caliber with less recoil. Will see ho...

Re: 6.5 Creedmore - anyone?

While we are talking about the 6.5CM has anyone got a good starting load for 140gr pills with either 2206H or 2208?

Re: scope?

Just wanted to add I am now also using a Nightforce Comp 15-55 (and love it just like a very large proportion of FClass shooters). Looked through most others except the Vortex GE...wasn’t out when I got the NF.

I also find I rarely use less than 40x.

Re: scope?

Started FClass with a Rem700 5r 24 inch barrel with a Bushnell TAC Elite 6-24 x 50. This is also my hunting rig (rarely get out with it). I suspect the rifle shoots better than my modest scores would suggest. Changed to a used Nightforce NXS 8-32 x 56 and the jump in clarity was amazing. Better suit...

Re: 6.5 Creedmore - anyone?

Lapua have 6.5 Creedmoor cases available with small primer pockets at about the same price as 260Rem and cheaper than 6.5x47 (on the qstore website atm) but dearer than 6.5x55.

I think it is worth a go...for PRS!

Re: nraa funding of overseas shooting

Perhaps the way to avoid this entire debate is just have more transparency so everyone can see where the funding comes from; where it is spent; and how those decisions are made. This is not a criticism of any of the people who give up their time to administer our sport but more a response to various...

Re: PRS IS COMING , WE HAVE TO EVOLVE !

Just read that the Mildura PRS event is already full in less than 24 hours - wow that is popular!

Can’t make the April comp but will get there this year.

Re: PRS IS COMING , WE HAVE TO EVOLVE !

I have enjoyed reading the range of comments thanks Graham. Looking forward to seeing some more PRS shooters coming to NRAA ranges to enjoy the challenge of long range shooting: surely we have more in common than we realise...

And can’t wait to have a crack at PRS! Might help my wind reading too.

Re: What Precision or Tactical Rifle setup do you use

So are there many stages where you have to use the scope for ranging (calculating distance)?
Or is it just best to have a ffp for holdover?
Btw thanks for answering my newbie questions.
