Re: Australian Outback NRAA ammo

[All fair points James and fully agree. Was just curious to see if anyone had actually used the Aus Outback ammo because it performed extremely well at the recent Comm Games here. ps .. if you can load 100 rounds from scratch (especially once fired) in an hour .. you're doing it better than I am .....

Re: Australian Outback NRAA ammo

Current VRA / QRA pricing, assuming 10 reloads per case, using Lapua Palma brass, CCI 450s, 4kg of 2208 or 06H and Berger 155.5 in 500 lots works out at about $1.13 per round plus an hour to load a hundred at $50? per hour would be a $1.63 per round vs NRAA 308W 155gr HBC 20rd at $28.00 / $1.40 per ...

Re: Grantville Rifle Range Fire

Any update? This morning it looks like almost all of the range is included in the burnt / burning area (https://emergency.vic.gov.au/respond/#!/warning/6599) but crossing everything that it isn't.

Re: Rifle Club FaceBook pages

Like it or not, FB where you need to be to get public interest. As a small business owner I can invest $3000 to $4000 in a mailed flyer campaign and get 12 measurable responses (normally by way of providing a small discount with the flyer, yet more cost) or I can put up a FB post and get anywhere be...

Grantville Rifle Range Fire

Hoping that everyone in the Grantville area is OK and that the range survives unscathed. Unfortunately the latest update on Vic emergency isn't looking good.

Re: Submerging barrels in cleaning solutions

Firstly, I am not an expert in ultrasonic cleaning but I have used them in industry whilst building high vacuum assemblies for superconductors. This is just a DIY toy, the original idea being that if it works and as I am normally cleaning two barrels per week then I would be able to save time by rem...

Nice one, I built the wife a 6BR, became a Dasher, cost me a fortune and now she kicks my butt every week we get to shoot other than a little upset at Rosedale the other week #-o

Fair enough, I thought you might be directing to a specific document.

Re: WTB SEB NEO REST

Thanks UL1700, considering a Mini, 3 months wait time and around A$1200 Peter Good option, if I hadn't managed to pick up a 2nd hand MAX then that is what I would have done. There are a few little bits that could do with tweaking on them but they are a good choice. The max is tiresome to carry arou...

Re: WTB SEB NEO REST

Nice Farley on FB at the moment, it's possibly a little pricey, depends on the base but good rests are hard to get hold of (new or 2nd hand)! https://www.facebook.com/groups/1442388839331951/ https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10157093218972652&set=pcb.2259352077635619&type=3&theate...

Some direction might be helpful as it (at least for me) just opens a blank page with various drop down boxes on :)

Re: Tikka T3 actions for F class standard

There are plenty of Tikka Actions out and about performing well but the reality is that they are a lightweight hunting action. To put it in some form of perspective, my Barnard P actions are almost half the weight of my fully built Tikka T3x hunter in 223 and cost twice as much. A target action will...

Re: WTB SEB NEO REST

Just my two cents but I would seriously consider the Mini if you want portability or the MAX if you can handle it. If I were to get a medium weight rest I would probably go a Farley. That said I have shot off all mentioned except the NEO :)
