Re: New to bench rest shooting

Might I suggest a phone call to forum sponsors CRM gunsports. They helped me into a new nightforce competition scope a few years back. Great price and great service for a customer that was on the opposite side of the country. I would highly recommend the NF competition scope, its what a hell of a lo...

Re: KEEP ME IN TUNE

One thing I noticed is a fair bit of arrogance in this regard. People have rifles that are very accurate. But then they foul and can’t smash the center. First thing they blame is the ET they shoot on. Then claim conditions are bad when others are putting in high scores. As Tim said, barrel cleaning ...

Tuners have nothing on a good pimping job Bruce.

Re: Jlk projectiles

Yes that was the first thing I looked at. Ordered two reamers from USA recently and the whole experience makes me wonder if sitting on a pineapple would be less painful.

Re: Jlk projectiles

I’m talking to swampy at the moment. He can’t raise bob or jan either. Have found out what’s involved in getting them going again here and sadly it’s out of my capabilities.

Re: Rifle stock keels??

If you read the article, Bart said it took 15 minutes to adjust so here was no movement in the scope when sliding the gun back. In f class you don’t have 15 minutes prep time. You get 15 minutes to shoot the string. I’m not against the idea, it’s great innovation, but it’s not practical for most f c...

Re: Rifle stock keels??

I agree there will always be things to make it all better, but unless your on a dead flat bench, with plenty of prep time, I dont think adjustable keels will be feasible for f class. I think better results will come from wind reading and load tuning.

Re: Rifle stock keels??

I saw that video a year or so ago, and made a few adjustments to the broom handle screwed onto the bottom of my stock 8) Effectively I shimmed the rear bag rider so that it was perfectly parallel to the front of the stock, and that under recoil the rifle comes back in the bags straight, and doesnt ...

Re: Rifle stock keels??

Watch the video where Tom puts the camera upnto the scope and moves the gun. Then watch him rattle down a detail. Pretty impressive but not practical for f class where mounds differ in shape and angle and consistency. Would take a long time to set up back and forth, we can’t shoot that quick anyway.

Re: Starting out in F Standard - Tikka T3x?

Last year at the national state f class teams event at lower light in SA, dave McNamara (North Queensland) used a FTR rifle built on a tikka action by Shane at CRM gun sports in Cairns. I think he top scored for the team and the rifle shoots really well.

Re: Starting out in F Standard - Tikka T3x?

I would go for it but look at a more conventional f class stock for it. I have a t3 varmint in 223 and it shoots 80gr sierras well enough to shoot possibles without heaps of effort. If ever you want a step up, get a new barrel for it and away you go. Tikka make some of the most accurate factory rifl...
