Re: F-class is an advanced discipline. $ stops new shooters

Hi Dennis Good topic, and its interesting to see the direction that it has taken. A couple of things that come to mind that I think some posters on here need to think about....... The sport of Fullbore shooting is always changing, like so many things in life, evolution is the key to success. We hav...

Re: F-class is an advanced discipline. $ stops new shooters

Excellent post/discussion here. I have a heavy barrel Howa barrel nd action in 6.5 Creedmoor that I fitted into a Cameron Hatcher stock. I've tried F Class at my local range and enjoyed it, but membership is small and not growing. Also as has already been said here, mainly older shooters are involve...

QRA membership

Seeing as how I live just below the Queensland border, I'm thinking of joining the Qld Rifle Association. Anyone one know what the fees are?

Re: Oz Score target system

Many thanks to you fella's and especially yourself Plumb. This is a steep learning curve because up to now it was either hunting or benchrest for me. So those of us who are just starting out need all the help we can get. I've already found that the better the shooter the more willing he/she is to he...

Re: Oz Score target system

Thanks Bob, There's a 500 m shoot on tomorrow and I want to (literally) give it my best shot. I have a 100m Zero and with my Creedmoor loaded with 140 Amax I reckon I've got about 55inches of drop.

Oz Score target system

I recently had my first shoot using the Oz Score target system and I'm not yet competent, if that's the right word, with it's use. When it comes up on the screen to tell you the direction to adjust the scope seems to be my problem. Under the ressure of a match is not the ideal time to get used to ne...

If it's the Hexta system, you can go to their website and have a look at your groups.

New shooter

I had my first taste of shooting F Class today and enjoyed it immensely. We were using the electronic target marking system that I really liked but had never seen one before and had trouble working out the options on the screen. Anyone know where I can find a tutorial on this target marking?
Thanks JD

New Creedmoor

P1010832.JPG I have always liked the way Howa rifles, at least the barrel and actions anyway, are built. I'd had a couple of Howa hunting rifles and tarted them up with Boyd's laminated stocks. They shot really well so when I decided to build a target rifle I went for a Howa barrelled action. The s...

Re: New kid

Thanks for your responses gentlemen, I'm looking forward to some interesting times trying get my head around moa scope adjustments, ballistics and all the rest. But I'm up for a challenge. When I wear the barrel out on the Howa I'll probably go for a Maddco, just like to support the locals. I went u...

New kid

I've been a shooter most of my adult life and in the beginning there was a heavy barrelled 303 out at the ANZAC Range at Liverpool. I moved on to hunting and then benchrest and a whole lot of things, but later I decided it was time to get back to the paper hunting. After a lot of thought I decided o...
