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

Re: Junior F Class State Teams

Umm sorry for any misunderstanding RB, my post was to highlight the kids achievements and the competition itself and not any winners V non winners, just haven't seen anything about it which is disappointing, also 224 views at this stage of posting might highlight the interest ?? 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...

Trevor,

When you say, your barrel has failed... In your observation what specifically has failed?

Re: New Sporter/Hunter Class...is your club promoting it?

...Question so why have rules for something that is non competitive ? As stated in rule 23.2 "The prime purpose for its introduction is to encourage participation, rather than competition...", but that doesn't mean it can't have a competition format. This is a sensible approach in my opin...

Re: 6mm 115gr DTACs for sale

Andrew, what is the minimum twist required to run these? Albert, Cartridge pending but, 7.5 twist would be my minimum... Each to there own but an 8 twist is very marginal with dtacs and i wouldn't recommend it.. Any of the 8 twist barrels getting good results id be sceptical of the barrels twist va...

Re: Hornady A tip Bullets

could it be that the Hornady marketing team learned some on how to charge extra with the heat shield tip, and carried it to a even greater heights with the aluminium a tip :?: :idea: :shock: . strange that the aluminium tip in the old amax was dropped because plastic ones were better, according to ...

Re: Hornady A tip Bullets

Hornady did an aluminum tipped bullet about 16 years ago, they were a very ordinary bullet at the time..
(Dont quote me, but i think it was the first A-MAX that had an aluminum tip...) Hornady then went to plastic tips..
