Re: High power scopes and NQ mirage!!

I am uncertain if winding the power back helps to reduce sighting error, it certainly makes he target look a little more still. This is something I would really like to know as well. Mirage is often compared to the spoon in a glass of water I understand that may just to be illustrate two substances...

Re: The Future

To be Honest though the PRS shooters are still a very small number of the total shooters if you take their number by the amount of shooters in the SSAA. Then there are those that are not shooting.

Re: The Future

I know the VRA is targeting Juniors very heavily. This would be the correct target group if the majority of the members were younger and had juniors. The fact is that the majority of the VRA members are much older. IMHO the target group to attract new members from is the 40-50 year old range. They m...

Re: 7mm SAUM Rechamber/Barrel Life

Williada with reference to your comment "whatever you do never wrap a rag around a nylon, brass or wool mop and add paste. Its a complete NO, NO." What is the correct procedure when using a paste like JB or KG2? Sorry to go off topic.

Re: Ultrasonic Cleaning of Barrels

You could certainly build a tank and attach this to it to create an ultrasonic cleaner. I have seen professional cleaners that just have a couple of large transistors mounted to the tank, these transistors are then switched to the frequency desired. It is just their mechanical movements that operate...

Re: Barrel Behaviour Theory

williada slightly on a tangent to this topic but related is I often wondered if a barrel tuner was in fact helping more with the job of acting like a crown than anything else.

Peter Wikipedia describes inertia as: “Inertia is the resistance of any physical object to any change in its position and state of motion. This includes changes to the object's speed, direction, or state of rest. Inertia is also defined as the tendency of objects to keep moving in a straight line a...
