Re: 7SAUM Brass

Use Norma 300 SAUM. Just run through FL sizer. Expand neck with an appropriate .284 expander die. Light skim turn of the neck depending on desired neck clearance with the chamber at hand otherwise should be good to go. Lighter loads so as to condition the case for the first couple of loads. Good sho...

Spot on Alan and Johno. Numbers ensure survival of the whole shooting movement. It will be interesting to see where your scoring system goes Alan as the data builds with

Re: New Sporter/Hunter Class...is your club promoting it?

Some brochures left in gunshops could assist now given the rules release as well as times made available for load development where access is limited promoting what we offer. Many of my friends in the SSAA spend a lot of range time setting up their gear.

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...
