Re: High power scopes and NQ mirage!!

In heavy mirage don't be afraid to wind the scope back. Yes 12 -15 power folks! With older eyes the amount of light hitting the pupil is critical for target definition. I wrote this up awhile back. Not only does the heavy mirage give an apparent aiming mark shift it creates a definition problem akin...

Re: VRA AGM motion

I support your motion Trevor. The argument to knock it out will be if all clubs provide champions in each class there might not be enough targets to shoot all at once. This is easily solved with divisions if need be to enable the same playing field with a shoot-off at a championship distance between...

Re: Delta Optical Stryker 5-50x56

Yep chicko its still working fine on the SAUM. If you are looking for value for money it is fine. As I said earlier, the focus adjustment is tiny to bring it up but once adjusted it does not move. The knobs are firm although they are not metal. No tracking issues to date. I would rate a nostril in f...

Re: HOW FULL IS A FULL CASE?

John, those are boat tail Berger 180 hybrids in my picture above. They are not soft seated as such, but utilize a .002" neck tension seated into the lands .010" using 2209. I am a believer in firm neck tension to ensure full ignition of the powder. Seating into the lands also assists this ...

Re: HOW FULL IS A FULL CASE?

John, its always interesting to see how many do things differently and of course success can be had with many variations. Its an oldie now, but Stan Ware took his "Wolfpup" design to the extreme. Here is a link, its worth a read again to note his reasoning. http://bulletin.accurateshooter....

Re: HOW FULL IS A FULL CASE?

John, I was wondering how your SAUM was going? The important point that Tim makes is to be safe. To that end, whatever powder is used, determine the max load by working up to it observing the pressure signs. The other thing that is important is a complete powder burn to reduce SD's. Of course faster...

Re: How would a Prize Meeting go on grand final Day.

No shooting at Moe Peter, but a lot done renovating upper targets for the coming Pennant season. Great enthusiasm by many intent on making the range look a picture. Lot of bullshit and banter that made for a pleasant day. The general feeling perhaps is the Grand final Day is a lazy family day. Altho...

Re: 155gr bullet choice for 1:13 twist

Peter, the Optimus HBC will run very well for the shorter ranges with a 1:13. The designated twist suggested by internet programs provide a general approach and are not distance specific. If you get down the mud it matters for centre count. Graham M asked me to consider different twist rates for pro...

Its hard to hear that the VRA State range at Bendigo maybe underutilized and resources may not be allocated efficiently when some clubs elsewhere are enjoying a resurgence and work hard physically and financially scrape and save through co-operative efforts to maintain and build on their presence.

Re: The Future

Denis the public are becoming more accepting of shooting again. In Victoria, we have a deer problem wrecking State and National parks. These were once no go areas but shooters and organised culls are being accepted now that the message being promoted is Australians have tough gun laws and better lic...

Re: The Future

I congratulate the the VRA for considering changing the format of the Champion of Champions to increase the participation of shooters. Thank you Trevor. The spin-offs are likely to mean more shooters could participate in the associated team events which are struggling to be filled as well as more bo...

Re: Given Current Component Availability...

Bruce how well can we get those lead slugs going? What rig could we have fun with on our targets given the reasonable limitations such projectiles pose. Certainly a class of its own for the fun of it given the cost this sport is becoming. Amazes me when raw materials are at lowest prices.

Re: 7mm SAUM Rechamber/Barrel Life

Just to respond to Sungazer, JB dimensionally alters barrel dimensions because it is an abrasive of about 1000 grit. Now when it is applied to rag or patch wrapped over around a flexible surface such as a bronze brush, a bristle brush or a mop the barrel dimensions are at great risk of uneven wear a...
