Re: Victorian Queens Series - 2018

Yeah good on ya for traveling that far at all. Its an expense a lot of us just cant justify or afford. Equipment and bullets are bad enough.

Re: canting reticle to allow for spin drift

I was reading an article today about a particular gun and in it was mentioned that not all bubble levels are created equal. This really surprised me due to the simple way they work. I suppose the tube the bubble is in could have non parallel walls or have a bend in it. How to determine the specs for...

Re: nswra queens 2018

It may not be a very welcome idea just a F class was not widely accepted to the Target shooting sport. However an idea to increase numbers to clubs and to competitions would to be to welcome the Service Rifle Shooting sport. There are a lot of new tactical type rifles that can fir into this category...

Re: F Class Competition in Australia

[quote="GSells" When I was at Bendigo a couple of weeks ago ( lovely people down there too!) , they had service target rifle that is allegedly in the Ssr rules . Which allowed factory and custom tac rifles with muzzle breaks to be shot at an opm . Those guys made up half of the field at th...

Re: F Class Competition in Australia

Alan I don't mean to criticize the sport in anyway. I would like to see the shooting sports grow esp F class. What you say about some of the other shooters mot knowing exactly what they want I also think is correct. At the moment they dont have a path that would concentrate what they want collective...

Re: F Class Competition in Australia

I dont see much future for the discipline at all when a suggestion to make the sport more inclusive is met with personal attacks. Even more so for something that was not even said or insinuated. Lawn Bowls would have gone the way of the dinosaurs if they didnt realize there outlook and make some hug...

Re: F Class Competition in Australia

Mike youve taken me the wrong way. I said nothing about expecting to win. My only point was that a person that turns up with his 223 on a Harris type folding bipod as Scott said should be able to join in and even go to an OPM. You learn so much more when you get out there on the mound by yourself fo...

Re: F Class Competition in Australia

I understand that there are some rifles with the tighter twists they are mainly sold as a long range hunter or combo type. It was more a general remark as many are much slower as mentioned 1.12 used to be the norm. Given they are again normally shooting the 55gr range projectiles. Yes again not real...

Re: F Class Competition in Australia

The rules in F standard esp for the 223 really stop the use of factory rifles just by specifying such a small amount of projectiles that can be used. most factory 223 are from 1.9 twist to 1.12 twist and the specified bullet weight in the rules is 80grn. The 80grn really needs a 1.8 twist of better.

Re: Victorian DRA teams

So you have one person that says there clubs selection is rigorous, which still has to go through a DRA shoot off that doesn't think the best person gets put forward? Another that thinks there club should do a better job of selecting a champion. Certainly the selection process at club level is a mat...

Re: Victorian DRA teams

In regards to one person in a discipline. It is what, it is. They should progress through. If we want to promote the sport in all its discipline's that, We should support all the disciplien's. Especially if it is an internationally recognized one. We want Australia to be part of the global sporting ...

Re: Victorian DRA teams

I completely agree with what Bartman007 has said. The pre-selection is what gives the event its prestige. If the winner is not able or does not want to go then the runner up or next available person should represent the DRA. As the VRA stated "It was good to see all DRA's represented" the ...

Re: Victorian DRA teams

Looking at the VRA site it seems as that was done back in 2015. The travel for a team to travel interstate I think would put a few off. We had shooting members in our team that are well over 80. It required some effort just to get them to Bendigo. One received his 50 year continuous membership certi...
