Re: Ladder testing using 300 yd velocities?

Ozscore works on time of flight, Silver Mountain calculates a terminal velocity So if time of flight on the Ozscore is sufficiently accurate, it could be used instead of velocity for ladder testing purposes. You could graph it against charge weight and vertical POI in the same way as velocity. Velo...

Re: Ladder testing using 300 yd velocities?

If you're referring to the velocities from Silver Mountain or Ozscore targets, I seem to remember reading that the velocity figures are not guaranteed to be accurate enough for normal chronographing purposes. For ladder testing you don't necessarily need velocity data, but if you do use it, it needs...

Re: New Sporter/Hunter Class...is your club promoting it?

...The next change that will hopefully draw people to keep coming is that scoring is as per TR... Yes, I've seen evidence of this already. We've had a shooter battling away in F/TR with a sporting .223 for a couple of years, only shoots occasionally. Last Saturday we changed him over to SH class an...

Re: sighting in target

I think this is a great idea, but its important to know its limitations. If you have a first up shoot at the longs, and its electronic targets, then you run the risk of making your target maintenance people very unhappy if you hit cabling or a sensor because of a poorly zeroed rifle. This method wil...

Yes at 500m - I saw that. I judged the 60.9 at 900m as more worthy of mention - its so much harder to get Xs at 900m/1000yds.

Re: 2019 NQRA Queens and NRAA Vets Team Matches

What a great contest in F-Open!! Craig McGowan finished without dropping a shot in the Queens https://www.nraa.com.au/nqra-queens-2019-results/ and only 1 point dropped in the Grand Agg!! Probably a record I would think. His shooting included a 60.9 at 900m, also probably a record. Steve Lazarus bag...

Re: New Sporter/Hunter Class...is your club promoting it?

Its still a competive class. Its been shot t a few PMs here in WA. Exactly Shaun. To those who are questioning the need for rules, there WILL be some who will like the competitive side of it - hence the need for competition rules. Others will just come and try to improve on their own skills. They w...

Re: New Sporter/Hunter Class...is your club promoting it?

Bruce, There is another good reason to have no limit on scopes - that is the "buy once cry once" principle. If a new shooter asked me what scope to buy for this class, and I sensed there was a possibility that they may end up shooting F-Class, then I would advise them to consider a quality...

Re: New Sporter/Hunter Class...is your club promoting it?

...Question so why have rules for something that is non competitive ? As stated in rule 23.2 "The prime purpose for its introduction is to encourage participation, rather than competition...", but that doesn't mean it can't have a competition format. This is a sensible approach in my opin...

WTB - 308 RH Barnard Target Rifle Complete

I have posted this in the TR forum, but maybe some F-Classers know of someone with a TR setup for sale? I'm asking on behalf of a prospective new member at Rosedale. He has no reloading equipment or shooting accessories, so this could be an opportunity for a retiring TR shooter to make a single sale...
