Re: Rifle weighing scales.

Alan, the VRA has always had a certified set of scales and a trigger weight and these are available for the use of members. They are always with me when I am officiating on the range. I would have thought that most VRA members knew that. Certainly all who attended the VRA are familiar with them. Ca...

Re: Rifle weighing scales.

Peter,

As CRO of Victoria, perhaps you could persuade the VRA to invest in some certified weights. This would allow shooters to bring their own scales (or personal weights) to Bendigo to check them.

Re: NRAA Elections for Director Positions - Nov 2nd

Great to see you putting your hand up Albert. Your presence on the Board will inject some much needed enthusiasm, energy and optimism. To all, there is work to be done. If there are several F-Class nominees then we have an opportunity (at last) to get fair representation at Board level. Let's not bl...

That's a fair point Denis. I've been guilty of that myself, but we're now in a situation where we can't afford to have that attitude.

Re: The Future

Currently we aren't prepared to make the effort required to increase numbers in TR and F-Class, plus we aren't willing to change to what the market wants. To make matters worse the market is picky - many want things that are very hard to provide on our ranges.

Re: The Future

I believe we'll get what we deserve. If as a group we're prepared to make the effort, then we'll grow and succeed. There is no easy fix.

There's nothing to say you haven't got a real shooter, but you'll need to go further back to find out :) .

Re: Ladder test- what went wrong?

...Should I be getting more than 20mm vert?... I'm afraid the short answer is no Tim. I estimate you should get a velocity difference of less than 40fps with that charge weight range, and that will translate to only about 10mm at 300yd. As Matt said, probably better to do it at say 500 (it will app...

Re: NRAA Elections for Director Positions - Nov 2nd

Bob, Congratulations on being one of the best Board members of recent times. Not only have you been the main advocate for F-Class, but your work in the Rules and IT areas has made a real difference across the whole organisation. You can hang up your boots in the knowledge that your considerable effo...

Re: 7mm SAUM Rechamber/Barrel Life

Thanks Brett. Might give the H7500 a try. Hoppes is out of stock at the VRA, so time to try something else.

Re: One Scope on Multiple Rifles

Alex, I've used Leupold QRW and Warne Maxima quick release rings for 15 years in F-Open and usually remove scopes each day after shooting, and swap scopes between rifles. The key requirement is to have good quality rails and in a particular if you are swapping between rifles, make sure the rails are...
