Re: One mile + rifle

I know he uses and iPhone and app called 'Measuring Tape'. I use that one myself, albeit for much shorter distances... sure beats using an actual measuring tape for that distance :)

Re: One mile + rifle

I really like the idea of no sighters and counting shots from cold bore because that introduces some real challenges: wind reading obviously, makes sure you know your zero and how your rifle behaves on that first shot of the day and after cleaning perhaps. At our club ranges, that shouldn't be overl...

Re: One mile + rifle

My Armalite will easily cover that distance accurately. 300 Win Mag...and won't break the bank in ammo costs either. That distance is exactly why I bought the AR30A1 Target rifle and Steiner scope. My plan was to open a coke can at 1klm and go the Max (Pepsi) at a mile (1.6klm) :) Unfortunately I wa...

Re: Travelling to and from shoots and fatigue

Thanks for sharing and it sounds like good reason to be very cautious. I second Frans's comment above, best to go see the doc as it could be sugar levels, or actually heart related and due to an oxygen level problem. I have first hand experience of that, and the symptoms you describe fit very well w...

Re: Barrel adapters for Omark

@Lonerider43 : Unlike most other actions, on an Omark action the bolt lugs interface directly into the factory barrel (or Black Mountain), not the action itself, so you can't simply fit a krieger or something without having an adapter made that has the lug interfaces machined into it and threaded fo...

Re: Bisley style shooting

Cant speak for others, but this TR shooter is very keen :) Only by trying this for a while will we see the value (or otherwise). Providing of course that each shot is timed, which I understand it is. (otherwise it would become a game of chess/strategy. delaying in order to fatigue your opponent/s). ...

Re: Bisley style shooting

I agree and think its great practice in memorising your last sight adjustment and keeping an eye on the flags to try stay in step. So far I have only had the opportunity to try it once, that was during QRA Dev Squad at Goondiwindi, but would welcome the opportunity to shoot that style more regularly...

Re: Silicone spray

I actually just ran out of my "One Shot' lube was looking at the tin of WD40 sitting on the shelf.
Hmm.. maybe not. I reckon WD could be problematic if not fully removed with sonic cleaning. Will dig out that imperial sizing wax and just get messy but I know it works well.

Re: Use of a signature block

It does seem insane that thieves target houses where they know the resident has a firearm. That can't be common in other countries where self defence via firearm is legal. Its like jumping over the gate that has a sign saying Guard Dog! Could be, that the fact we cannot use firearms for self preserv...

WANTED - Centra LR rear Sight with Dovetail base

Looks like I was pipped at the post for buying Andrews sight.
So, was wondering if anyone else may have a righthand Centra LR or RPA Trakker rear sight for sale (preferably with Anshutz dovetail base).
Or maybe a Warner! :)

Please PM me if you have.
Thanks,
Gerard.
