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...

Re: Can we shoot ssaa disciplines on an nraa range

Hi Bob Our range is a commonwealth dept of defence range and I believe our lease with them lets us carry out any discipline within the NRAA SSR’s. I’m awaiting clarification for this. We also have SSAA members come and shoot, however it’s been a bit of a sticky point as while that person is covered,...

Re: Can we shoot ssaa disciplines on an nraa range

Gday Trev

Our range the mounds are really high so we need dirt to build up at 549m to be able to see the targets.

I just think it’s a real shame that there isn’t any way to pay one affiliation fee and be able to shoot anything and everything.

Re: Can we shoot ssaa disciplines on an nraa range

We can’t as our range is metric so no firing point at 600y. It would take a lot of material to build a 600y mound. Much easier to bring portable benches to 500m and shoot fly targets. And just use paper spotter targets instead of steel.

Re: Can we shoot ssaa disciplines on an nraa range

Only problem there is in any sort of benchrest competition, we can’t claim records or be recognised. I’ve read the fly shooting rules and it’s pretty clear they only want it to be a SSAA event. And like Denis said, it seems quite clear the NRAA don’t want a bar of SSAA. The only thing I could think ...

Re: Can we shoot ssaa disciplines on an nraa range

Thanks Matt, passing it onto the local gurus to see. I enjoyed fly shooting a lot. But it’s a 3.5hr drive there plus another set of club fees etc. it would be great for each ssaa and nraa to be able to adopt each other’s disciplines. Gives the long range f class guys a chance to shoot steel and shor...

Can we shoot ssaa disciplines on an nraa range

Is it possible to adopt a non nraa discipline and shoot it on an nraa range? I’m talking about 500m fly. Paper targets, fixed firing points, single loading. Nothing different to what we do now for the approved 600yd benchrest, just a different target that is shot at, and at the metric 500m range off...

Re: Stock Rigidity

A lot needs to be said for what is winning. Bob eagers stocks work. Ken noye stocks work. Most will work fine. Have seen a few joe west laminates here in WA and they are comfy if you grip your rifle, I never did shooting more free recoil with thumb on top and the saum I would lean into a little more...

Re: Stock Rigidity

I’m following this one with interest. My situation is that I’ve recently sold my f class gear to finish building my house while I’m on apprentice wages. It won’t be A fair while before I’m able to participate in any form of shooting again, but I’m slowly making inroads into that. My aim is to build ...

Re: 223 Rem throat length

Im running the 80gr smk with 24.5gr 2208 and a br4 primer. Mate is using the 70gr rdf in a shorter freebore varmint chamber. Not sure of his load. But the 80gr smk load works well in my factory tikka t3 varmint. Will check what COAL it’s set at tonight. Pretty sure it was jumping 20 thou. Yes bullet...
