Re: canting reticle to allow for spin drift

I shot mils and still do in f class . Only switched for teams . Good to know both ! But Moa is better for f class! But don’t let mils stop you from competing. Jbm is extremely accurate with accurate info fed into it . Even though I could manage without it going to a Comp , I just like to confirm my ...

Re: canting reticle to allow for spin drift

Hi Mate , yes u can cant ur scope to compesate , but only do half the job at a 1000 yds at the expense of elevation inaccuracies. It sounds like you have similar ballistics to a 155 gr 308 . Which mine was shot in For 200m for hunting ( these were early days !). Then dial up .5 of a mil for 300 yds ...

Re: FCWC 2021

I’m South African and shot with a few of you last year at Connaught. I can assure you that SA is as safe as anywhere else if you stick to the right places and take the necessary precautions. The range is top class with plenty of flags (new ones, all tight to the pole :)) and good ablution facilitie...

Re: FCWC 2021

I have some security concerns with S.A. that may make me not nominate . Also the question of powder with adi possibly hard to get . I was talking to a Kiwi shooter sharing the same concerns with security . It maybe also our cars get broken into with a front rest or something of value getting pinched...

Re: Australia vs New Zealand F-Open Teams Match

Rob, you are being very humble and it is truly wonderful commentary from the Champion. Yes luck always plays some part but you were the most consistent shooter during all the days, not just one day or one range. This in itself prove that you are the worthy recipient of the Belt. Well done again Mat...

Re: Australia vs New Zealand F-Open Teams Match

Just to give an idea to our Aussie shooters here how nasty and cruel Trentham can be ? A lovely Kiwi ftr shooter was on my target and he was well in contention with the final if he nail it at both 1000 yds. He got touched up on the first 1000 . But on the second thousand and he was down just before ...

Re: Australia vs New Zealand F-Open Teams Match

Is 70.8Km/hr fast? How much do you need on your turret to get into the X ring? [A LOT] You should try leaning into the wind, and see what angle you get to before you fall over. Maybe a good day to throw the frisbee, or maybe a boomarang. I've never heard of shooting being called off due to too much...

Re: Australia vs New Zealand F-Open Teams Match

Graeme can you please give Lewis Reynolds some WD40 for his windage knob over there. At his home range at Cessnock, he maxs out at 3 clicks either direction, not 3 revolutions. Lol! The Cessnock boys are doing very well !! Lewis took a hit with a 42 , Les is in thrd . It can be a cruel place ! I go...

Re: Australia vs New Zealand F-Open Teams Match

Another character building day at Trentham where there was patches that if you got in them could do very well . Or for me today was a good start with lil 7-08 ai at 3 and 5 . But started to bleed points at 600 that turned into a hemrage !! At 900 I was holding from 3 ring to 3 ring ! Hopefully the w...
