Re: 6.5 PRC

alan, what about the 277 sig case with steel case heads. it can apparently be loaded to 80.000 psi. that would let you go to the next node up! bruce. The trouble is, Lapua brass may be hard to get, but that would be nigh on impossible! Anyway, being on a classification range I wouldn't want the nex...

Re: 6.5 PRC

My main interest in this case for F-Open would be necked up to 7mm. Magnum case head, Lapua brass, short fat case, capacity probably slightly more than 284, what's not to like? If there was one minor quibble, it would be neck length on the short side (compared with the 7 SAUM), but it does tick a lo...

Rosedale's on Again

In 2020 Rosedale OPM was delayed for 8 months till the end of November. That wasn't long ago but the 2021 event will be back to its normal timeslot in March, and that's only 5-6 weeks away! This will be our first OPM on the Hextas and we require pre-registration. For more information CLICK HERE and ...

Re: 2020 NSW Queens

...I worked as Chief Butts Officer for the 3 days... Thanks for the detailed and cheerful account of the ET performance Matty. This sort of transparency needs to happen more. You clearly made a big effort to keep things running smoothly and handled it well given the pressure of a Queens level event...

Re: 2020 NSW Queens

Thanks again for looking after us poor interstate watchers Tim. And congrats on your own performance in a surprisingly big field. It says something about the conditions that a 6BR was competitive and F-Std outscored Open, with equipment accuracy likely the major determinant.

Re: Flagpoles

Does anybody have a supplier of good quality aluminium flagpoles suitable for range use? All the ones that we can find are cheapo ones designed for home use. We have some serious winds on our range. Cheers Peter Peter, I can recommend InTrack (Pakenham). All the Rosedale ones are from there. In abo...

Re: Zeroing for ETs

When the people who make the decisions are either not regular shooters or don't happen to be affected by an issue, then change is less likely to happen unfortunately. For example with blow-off shots, its interesting to see how people's views change according to how their current barrels behave when ...

Re: ET Insurance

We use a SA company called LCIS. We didn't need building or public liability (covered by Shire and NRAA respectively) so managed to get contents only for theft/fire/vandalism which included the ETs as specified items. See https://www.localcommunityinsurance.com.au/

Re: Zeroing for ETs

E-targets come with pluses and minuses. One of the biggest pluses is that because marking is very quick and marker changes aren't required, they shorten the shooting day quite significantly. On the other hand, time spent maintaining them is at least as much as manual targets, and much more when sens...

Re: Zeroing for ETs

yes alan. but how do you put it to the latter group when they actually argue black and blue. probably this thread is about having a system that works. bruce. The key is to have a competent and "firm but fair" RO. If there is a large number of offenders then you might have to consider maki...

Re: Zeroing for ETs

Bruce,

We have people who've had to be helped with zeroing throughout their shooting careers. As long as they know to ask and someone is prepared to help, its fine by me. Its the over-confident ones who think they know what they're doing (and don't) who are the problem.

Re: Zeroing for ETs

Tim, At Rosedale we've tried a few different methods in an effort to protect our Hexta electronics. We hadn't considered a short range zero from the mound because of the need for a bullet catcher. We've ended up concluding that a manual target at the beginning of the first range is the most time eff...
