Re: More on Barrel Tuners

By my rough calculations, the effect on muzzle velocity of rifle weight and of shouldering vs free recoil, is much less than some are saying. This stems from the fact that a typical F-Class rifle is about 800 to 1000 times the mass of a typical projectile. The conservation of momentum principle dict...

Re: More on Barrel Tuners

...One of my Heavy bench rifles was 120lb and there was minimal recoil, we actually reduced the rifles weight by 45lb to allow it to recoil, muzzel velocities did not change at all... Theoretically, all else being equal, a lighter rifle will recoil more and muzzle velocity will decrease. Maybe you ...

Re: MCSI, update needed

... it appears weighted quite heavily in favour of F standard. The last update was from figures gained in 2014, I think F Standard scores have improved since that time. So, Alan, can we have an update please. Cheers Danny Danny, I agree, F-Open and F/TR seem to be getting the raw end of the stick b...

Re: NQRA Queens

Someone has advised me that F-Class badges in the NQRA Queens will no longer be Queens badges. Can anyone confirm this?

PS. My apologies - please ignore that - it was the NTRA Queens that was mentioned (see Geoff's post below).

Re: sara queens

The main Queens scribe in this forum, Tim Nugent scored a 60.10 at 700 this morning. Not many clean in the 600m though. Nicely done Tim, and you too at 300 Rod. I seem to remember the first 60.10 at Lower Light was only a month or two back. The 700 scores in F-Open were amazing. You have to sympath...

Re: sara queens

Your reporting is much appreciated Tim. I'm pleased to see from the weather forecast that the 900 looks like it will actually happen in the Queens this year. There is a strong field in F-Open - hopefully we'll see a close competition.

Re: Victorian Queens Series - 2018

Yes well done to all. Rod was in majestic form in F-Open, but Bob Kinnear very impressive again. Great to see Danny get up in F-Std-A, and "Mahoney" in F/TR. Conditions were on the whole pretty good on all 3 days, still very warm for this late in the year, but nothing like it used to be in...
