Re: Bisley style shooting

NO. You are correct that many recreational shooters won’t be too keen to increase the challenge especially at difficult ranges, BUT there are quite a few A grade TR shooters who travel to Bisley, Bloemfontein, Camp Perry and Connaught more regularly than us F class shooters who would welcome more o...

Re: Bisley style shooting

At various times over the last few years, I've raised the idea of having a Bisley style shoot at one of our local ranges. It hasn't yet happened, mainly because some of the older shooters give less than glowing reports of their experiences with it. I think we need to accept that its not everyone's c...

Re: ULTRA-LONG RANGE CHALLENGE

Possibly Keith, but it doesn't take much velocity spread to cause bad vertical at 1500yds. I may have had some positive compensation helping during the 800yd testing, but that would have been overwhelmed at the longer ranges.

Didn't record it Rod. But can only assume it was at least 10fps SD.

Re: ULTRA-LONG RANGE CHALLENGE

What were the scoring ring values on the target Alan? Same as normal or different? How bad was a 4? MR uses the 8-900 2002 target : 6 ring 305mm, 5 ring 610mm, 4 ring 1220mm c.f. ICFRA LR : 6 ring 255mm, 5 ring 510mm, 4 ring 815mm My vertical 4s were still in the black, so probably grouping about 1...

Re: ULTRA-LONG RANGE CHALLENGE

I had a come-up of 48 minutes from 100yds to 1500yds using 183gn SMKs at MV 2860fps (284 Shehane). My old Leupold 6-20 has 90MOA adjustment so achieved it comfortably. But I got a very good lesson in how critical low velocity spread is at ultra long range. The load was holding better than X ring at ...

Re: ULTRA-LONG RANGE CHALLENGE

Just made it home. Well done Lou Shallis in F-Class - he had his SAUM humming. And also congrats to Geoff Willis in F/TR and Phil Bain in MR. Thanks to all who organised this event - very well run - as usual at MR events, relaxed and easy going. Conditions were very good apart from the rain on Sunda...

Re: ULTRA-LONG RANGE CHALLENGE

Any updates on how things are going at the long range shoot in Coona? There are about 30 shooters, about half MR, and about a quarter each F Class and F/TR. Conditions were pretty good for Saturday, but even in light winds the 1500 was very tricky, with best F Class scores around 70 out of 90. Denn...

Did that idea ever get off the ground??

No it didn't. The best option if you want to run a 284 over 2900 fps with 180gn projectiles is to get a SAUM.

Re: Rear plate?

Does anybody use a similar set up where the rear plate spikes have a threaded washer on them where you can level up the plate? If so at queens level was this exceptable? Cheers Alan Yes I do Alan. Its a flat steel plate with holes at each corner and nuts welded to the bottom of the holes. I use thr...

Re: Several primers not showing much pin strike

...even if they had no powder the primer would blow the projectile out and jam it in the barrel... Chris, I can tell you from personal experience that BR-2s do not necessarily launch the projectiles from the case - maybe I have them seated firmer than most, but over the last 10 years of using BR-2s...

Re: Use of a signature block

Michael, They're all valid points you make, and this idea has been considered before. Probably the main objection has been that some don't like to advertise that they have firearms stored at home, but of course publication of results does that regardless. As a forum administrator, if we did require ...
