Re: Looking at EJ-123 scale for greater reloading accuracy. Any experience?

I would save for the FX series as you move from load cells to a hybrid moving magnet technology. As I understand it, this is what allows the scales to respond accurately and quickly to very small changes in weight and what differentiates the cheap from the expensive scales irrespective of brand.

Mate of mine has the same scope and relegated it to the .22 bench gun after 2 sets of stitches, exceptional glass though!

Re: High power scopes and NQ mirage!!

I have the 8-80 in victoria and have never fired a shot at 80x. That said the guy I purchased it off (only sold as he retired from shooting) claimed he often used 80x but I have yet to find suitable conditions. I do use 55 to 60 on rare occasion but the last OPM I shot at I was down around 15 to 20....

Re: Rifle weighing scales.

Baby weigh scales are another option, 0-20 kg, an ok resolution of 5 grams for a little over $100 and easy to put the rifle on.

Re: Shooters Mat

UL1700, Mate I like your way of thinking.

Not far wrong there...

Re: Tall Gun Safe

You will find that the ammo box in the top of most safes are only a tack welded piece of sheet steel. A lump hammer and a cold chisel quickly converts a safe with an ammo box into a "long" safe with no ammo box. Recently changing rifle from a 28" barrel to a 30" barrel meant I h...

I'm starting to think that my 6 foot $30 piece of Canvass tarpaulin with custom bag cutout provided by myself is inferior!

Re: The Future

Location must be a significant factor, Lang Lang was so busy last Saturday 6+ shooters on every target (5 off) plus spectators and interested newcomers that I had to gave up after two ranges (one range for the Sophie) and go back to work! It also seems crazy that I am lucky enough to have have two r...

Re: The Future

Thankfully my club is looking into ETs, which should make the sport less time consuming and more family friendly to younger shooters. Best thing out for club shoots! There is no way I would have the time to shoot on manual targets especially if I did my bit pulling and marking. As it is Hexta makes...

Re: Elevation adjustments

Berger claim 53 minutes but I had to guess bullet weight and Ballistic Coefficient (I used 38 grains and a G1 of 0.110) anyway fun to play with if you don't know of it already and comforting to have access to at the range for a beginner like me...
