Re: Prize meetings

Trevor Rhodes, Why dont the VRA, just hire the Hexta targets from nearby clubs, money is then circulated back into the clubs to help improve their ranges.. More (2 day) PM could then be scheduled on the Bendigo range, to utilize its wonderful facilities and longer ranges. No competitors want to pul...

Re: Prize meetings

Re: Prize meetings

As someone at the forefront of the push for delays, I am disappointed that ICFRA has specified a 10 second delay. In my opinion that is far too much - around 5 seconds is enough to prevent the sort of "machine gunning" that is bad for the sport. In relation to how the delay is implemented...

Re: Prize meetings

Why don’t they just get there own hexta targets Or how about they stick with proper targets. There are enough OPMs with ETs if that is what you want to shoot on. Surely a few OPMs can stick with manual targets and long ranges to excite some of the more ambitious shooters. Rod, Paper targets are gre...

Re: Tuning Basics 101

After 39 posts no mention of the importance of primers and ignition? basic 101? Primers seating depth neck tension - should all be worked out in the first 25 rnds of the breaking in process, bullet holes in paper (group shapes/and their shot order) are not random... Another process that is overlooke...

Re: Junior F Class State Teams

RB,

I think you need to read my post again, nothing about "placing high expectations on kids"... :roll:

My point was that a write up with photos from this event would of been nice for these kids to share with their family/friends/schools even their local newspaper......

Cheers

Couldnt agree more ...

Re: Life of Barrels

Initially I was getting un-explained vertical shots. Chronographed loads over Labradar and had 45 f.p.s. spread. This is not a loading issue as the same loads in a different barrel produced a 4.575.inch group at 1000yd. I think the problem is what works in one barrel doesnt always work in another b...
