Re: nraa funding of overseas shooting

From what I understand TR teams get funding through NRAA via grants that the NRAA apply for on behalf of the shooters. I THINK the funding comes from Australian Institute of sport (or similar). They justify it on the grounds that TR is a commonwealth games sport and F class isn't. Gonna be interesti...

Re: Alpha munitions brass

Gyro. Short answer is yes. As with everything there is a point of diminishing returns but for me good brass and a good barrel are the platform to build accuracy on.

In a multi day event a few 1% improvements combined usually determine the pointy end.

Re: Alpha munitions brass

I don't THINK they will ever ruffle lapua based on current volume but who knows what happens in the future. With berger and lap and vhit (I think?) combining they may be putting their premium into loaded ammo for contract orders. Agreed Bruce 6 shots does not make a test but I have seen other good r...

Re: Alpha munitions brass

However even the Small Primer cases have a 2mm flash hole even larger than the standard Large Primer cases would have so it may not be suitable for target rifle work. They have been doing testing on the optimum primer and flash hole size for each cartridge and power range as they seem to understand...

Re: LAPUA 308 BRASS

I haven't been impressed with the standard of recent lap brass. Dimensions are all over the place not just between batches but within the same box. I like perfect brass. . . . . If you have a good barrel and you match it with good brass then you have a consistent platform to work everything else off...

Re: Barnard V block dimensions

The "vibrations" of the block are only going to be equal to what the action would apply to the stock if mounted directly anyway.

Re: Barnard V block dimensions

Thank you very much oh knowledgeable ones!

Pete good point regarding convex blocks. What's your thoughts on heavily relieving (1-2mm) the central section effectively leaving two V topped pillars 25mm long they are still connected by the lower section of the block?

Alpha munitions brass

Has anyone played with Alpha Munitions brass? Looking at some of the photos and info out there and it looks like it could be an option possibly better than lapua so I put and order in for some to try. I think they are only making 308, 6mm Creedmoor and 6.5 Creedmoor at this stage with both small and...

Re: March ELR scope

anything with FFP and PRS in its concept is 30% over priced. With PRS I've never seen a sport so reliant on technique yet marketed with rubbish toys in my life!

Re: March ELR scope

Same as an old Lyman with external adjustments except they have built a sealed housing around it. :-)

Great until unless rest the tube against something and pushes AWAY from the adjustment turret.
