All good Rich. And besides we're all entitled to an opinion.

Re: Milrad and moa

I think its good to help new F-Class shooters, but they shouldn't be advised to get a milli-radian scope and should be encouraged to change to MOA ASAP if they turn up with one. Everyone talks MOA and its unlikely they'll find someone as helpful as cheech anywhere else.

Re: Milrad and moa

cheech,

I agree with your 3 clicks (of 0.1mil) to the MOA. It would only be when you're converting large come-ups (e.g. from 300yd to 1000yd) you might want to use the exact conversion figure. But even then your method introduces an error of only about 3%.

Re: Rosedale 2 Day OPM

Shooter numbers will probably be limited to 50 and pre-registrations are now approaching 40 so if you're intending to come, don't miss out. Call/text me on 0427 454 243 (or PM AlanF).

Rosedale 2 Day OPM

This was originally meant to happen in March. Fortunately the relaxation of Covid restrictions have finally reached a point where it can be held. There will be things like masks and hand cleansers and hugless greetings to comply with, but we'll be trying to make it as normal as possible. Note that P...

Re: Scales

I think this discussion is similar to many we have - trying to decide how much trouble/expense its worth going to for the purposes of improving performance. This time its charge weight accuracy, sometimes its neck tension, bullet runout, etc. etc. Any error no matter how small will occasionally caus...

Re: CANCELLED: Victorian State Championships 2020

We are having a free entry shoot with restricted numbers to give back something to members that have been in lockdown for 6 months. Lockdown ends on the Sunday the 8th and giving Melbourne members a day grace to get to Bendigo hence the Tuesday 10th shoot. Any Victorian are welcome as long as they ...

I believe its a trial run, not expected to attract a big field, to see how they can manage the Covid restrictions. It'll help with the planning of some other possible events on the first weekend of December.

Re: Lapua 284 brass

I seem to remember mention of a special order in the US, that wasn't available for export? However if its available in Australia through NIOA then that'll eliminate the need for expanding the 6.5 necks.

PS Maybe it was Norma who did the special order....

PM sent. Anyone else please PM Locknload if you can offer advice and support. Probably not the best thing to be discussing on an open forum.

I think you're right. It could be due to different default security settings on some browsers, and the Forum software not being able to handle it. I'll refer it to my phpBB guru.

Re: Beginners scope suggestions

Make sure to get an MOA (not MIL) scope with 1/8 MOA adjustment. I think some of the 8-32 Sightrons are only 1/4 MOA. I have 2 Sightrons and would recommend them. Probably better to go with variable than fixed magnification. Some may prefer a fixed 45X for 1-200yd BR but you rarely see that type of ...
