Re: Sierra or Berger

Yeah, sierra makes most of their projectiles on multiple machines resulting in variable base to ogive measurements and then they have the arrogance to dump them in the same box so when you load them the results vary !!!

Berger, not so much :)

Re: If ballistics is a science ....

Bruce, in North Sydney, and at F class comps in NSW I see 1/2 x ring groups quite a bit. Maybe not all 10 shots, but most of them. I can think of lots of shooters who can do this, especially on the first shoot of the day, shooting a rifle chambered by one of our top gunsmiths.

Re: If ballistics is a science ....

I think that once you get an F class rifle that can shoot an x ring sized group (or better, 1/2 x ring sized) then the biggest gains come from wind reading and thats more an art than a science. There are plenty of f class shooters that can get 60.5 - 60.10 in a dead calm because the gear we have is ...

Re: If ballistics is a science ....

Only simple scenarios can be explained 'precisely' by mathematical models. I say precisely in quotes because you are assuming the formula is right but all formulas are models. In physics a system of 2 bodies orbiting each other can be predicted pathwise but if you look at the solar system there are ...

Re: 300 Winmag and WSM Yes or No

Well I have a 300wsm and with 210 or 215s its not much different to a saum. very little, in a target rifle. But if you were to shoot a 300 winmag with 230s in an AI or tactical rig it would kick the crap out of you ..... If you are in nsw the energy is ok but not bendigo or brisbane

Re: which would you recommend

6.5cm is a good choice for PRS, but that kind of rifle will not cut it in F open, I agree that if you want to dabble in F class then some 308s will cut it in f standard, for a while. but only for practice, not competition because you are competing against rifles with 80fps more muzzle velocity from ...
