Re: KM Arbor Press Force Indicator

Way back now, I corresponded with a gut who designed a jig to measure unseating pressure. He figured that it might be more pertinent to seating.

Re: Hunter/ Class registration

A version of the Belmont range standing orders from when I was CRO (and I don't believe this element has been changed) states: It is approved for Category A & B Firearms for sport target shooting and training. Matches Air Rifle Centrefire Rifle Fullbore Rifle Muzzle Loading Rifle Rimfire/Smallbo...

Re: Dates for NRAA Queens

According to the QRA draft 2018 Belmont Calendar:

18-19 June: Ladies Teams Match
20-21 June Presidents Match
22-24 June: NRAA Queens

Re: nswra queens 2018

Not what I said at all , Matt. The state Associations welcomed F class into the State championships progressively from 1997, but I acknowledge, not with universal consistency.

Re: nswra queens 2018

Jase, I'm surprised. The Queen's prize is an event that has existed from the 1860s for a linear descent of iron sight equipped rifles. The name & the chairing are traditions associated with that discipline. It seems to be grotesque that anybody could perceive the award should automatically apply...

Always thought that there were four - cut, spin 90, cut again - and I've been using them since the early 2000s.

Re: Foresite mount size

after the 44B Omark barrel showed up, .8 was standard until metrics came along some time after which they went to 19 mm which is close enough to .75.
