Re: Fake News? Interesting article re US NRA

Sure did mate. Holden's commentary covers a wide range of the human condition. This includes the tragic and humourous, the loathesome and admirable, and of course the phony and genuine. Its give a young lad an insight into motive and traps that lay ahead in the journey through life. Have to have rea...

Re: Help identifing Omark barrel

A couple of extra pointers as I can not see the picture clearly, but some of my black mountain barrels had the junction between the barrel taper and the parallel section accommodating the sight block, rounded. The black mountain barrels had a much tighter bore to accommodate the 144 gr projectiles. ...

Re: Just starting out

Gyro, I recognize and appreciate your armouring ability and marksmanship, and my friends who have met you speak highly of you and I may have some sound gear but the new shooter in the context of this thread does not relatively speaking but can be competitive with that gear in the grading systems des...

Re: Just starting out

I think Brian Litz was pitching his comments to newbies to build their confidence as they develop their experience. Don't think any newbie expects to be a world champion in a couple of shoots, but wants to be competitive and to learn the ropes. Brian's work has been positive for the sport and many p...

Re: Just starting out

Its right up your alley Gyro - controlling recoil - mine too. Nothing like learning to read conditions. Remember being doubted over using faster burning powders such as 2209 in the SAUM. Getting that ignition right is sooo important. Don't underestimate it. Good shooting guys. Thanks for posting Gyr...

Re: VRA lead up and Queens.

Looking from afar the standard was fantastic. Sound results from rising stars in FO that the experience will cement ideas for further improvement. Outstanding performance Rod. Lots of positives for everyone and I am sure a Queens series to remember.

Re: Experience with Delta Stryker HD scopes...How do they stand up?

For what it is worth, I decided to try a Delta Stryker after my Nightforce shat itself. I have been using it a while now and before the QRA stocked them. Value to me is whether a scope will track and hold zero in constantly changing conditions. Its optics are not bad and I would now rate it higher t...

Re: VRA lead up and Queens.

James Bendigo is a doddle compared to Rosedale and that experience will hold you in good stead. This is not intended to be one-up-manship but when I was a young lad I shot Rosedale with 33 right wind on. The take home message from the old boys of the time was know your zero and and don't worry about...

Re: Best binoculars for scoring?

James, there must be good spotting scopes available from older tr sources. It would not be a bad investment if you integrate its use on the mound with scope shooting because that is where the FO is heading to get an edge. Should you be given the opportunity to coach in team shooting you would see th...

Re: Bullet flight

James come back to basics mate. Perhaps it is a flinch you have developed. Watch your position, breathing, avoid snatching the trigger and don't forget to read the wind. :D

Great clip Tim. Sure demonstrates why testing our groups should be at a minimum of 140 yards. Wonder at what distance those babies went to sleep?

GMan, its a trick to snow the opposition because those in the know are glued to this site. But they don't realize, we Aussies have led them around in circles, up and down gum trees, in and out of fog and now we are going to snow them. We tell them everything on Ozfclass. We hold every SAUM case the ...
