Re: Canberra Queens

Congrats to all =D> =D> =D> . All my internet connections were disabled over the weekend so wasn't able to keep up with things. The scores indicate to me a typical Canberra Queens - a few locals know the peculiarities of the conditions, and everyone else is at its mercy. Its good to see Bob Kinnear ...

I am detecting some verbal irony. And yes it would get hot there, although Bloemfontein is quite elevated.

Re: Bisley style shooting

Phil, You've highlighted something that I for one had never considered. As you say F-Class shooters can dress much lighter. For that reason it may be better to look at F-Class only events for warmer times and places, and also think carefully about 2 vs 3 per target, and consider reducing the number ...

Re: Bisley style shooting

Might be good to add it on to the end of the SARA Queens. That would attract retirees plus those with a week's holiday.

Re: RSAUM with Energy restrictions

Has anyone with a SAUM made a serious effort to find a load in the 2800s? I've seen very good accuracy in the high 2700s with a 284, so why wouldn't the SAUM have similar accuracy with lighter loads.

Re: 6.5 PRC

Hi Frank, If you have time to post some info on this round would be great. Possibly it will become another 7mm variant for F Open if there is good brass available. I agree Tim. Capacity seems to be very similar to the 284, but with full magnum bolt-face, longer neck and shorter powder column. If ne...

Re: RSAUM with Energy restrictions

Albert, There WILL be lower nodes, and with the excellent ballistics of the 183 you'll still have very good performance in the wind. Even if you have to drop 150 fps from your favoured velocity, the effect of a 2mph (typical) wind change will only be slightly more, e.g. at 1000yd, less than an inch ...

Re: Victorian DRA teams

A good few years back, my Club changed its rules to define the Club Champion as the person with the highest score in the club competition who was available to compete in the DRA championship. :wink: The DRA didn't let us get away with it. I have never had it explained why it is so important that an...

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...
