Re: Victorian Queens Series - 2018

Matt, I'm with you in regard to specific ET's impacting on my choice of where I'll shoot a Queens. Due to the cost of competition including accommodation /etc, I won't be going to ACT unless they have F Class shoot on paper targets or deploy Hexta targets. That's my decision due to experience shooti...

Re: FCWC 2021

Again, with just over a year to prepare it was a rushed affair, yet, a lot was achieved as could be seen in the results, imagine what we could achieve if we had a lengthened time to do so, IMO, announcing some key players this year would be a huge benefit. IMO we should be careful in not dragging o...

Re: Australia vs New Zealand F-Open Teams Match

Is 70.8Km/hr fast? How much do you need on your turret to get into the X ring? [A LOT] You should try leaning into the wind, and see what angle you get to before you fall over. Maybe a good day to throw the frisbee, or maybe a boomarang. I've never heard of shooting being called off due to too much ...

Re: NSW F-Class Association Match

This is Australia not Bisley or Canada or anywhere international. ......South Africa is less than 4 years away. Bisley practise will give the current F Class Open World Champion and others more experience prior to competing in SA in 2021. That is one reason, however a key driver for me is the impor...

Re: NSW F-Class Association Match

• Match will cater for Bisley Pairs and individual shooters as well. Dennis, won't this dilute the numbers in the Bisley competition? I'm keen on the shoot if it is Bisley Pairs. If it was simply a long range shoot over 2 days, then I'd probably just stay in my home state as it is an 8 hour trip ea...

Re: Australia vs New Zealand F-Open Teams Match

With the usual apprehension that I don’t “wanna be the guy that lets my team mates down” So long as you go to the line knowing you have done your best, then you have nothing to be concerned about. We all do our best for the team, and if it achieves the winning score then hooray. I'll be keenly watc...

Re: Australia vs New Zealand F-Open Teams Match

Everyone should be getting very excited now, not long until you go to the home of the big white cloud.

You will find the hospitality fantastic, as they look after their guests very well!

Enjoy the shoot and do well, as you have a strong team!

Re: RECOIL and THE BLOEMING CASE

Recoil comes down to a lot of things but stock design and bag setup can make all the difference if done correctly. Too true, and not to overlook powder choice. When i got my Saum going back around 2011, i tried 2217 2213 and 2209. Recoil was markedly different between the 3 powders! I settled on 22...

Re: Holidays

Thanks for your support this year, it was excellent! All the best to your team and your family during this festive season. I for one thoroughly enjoyed the Competition in Canada, and as one of the line coaches know just how pointy those Open rifles were! A real credit to the quality of the Bartlein ...

Re: Looking for feedback

In regard to duration of time away from home, if it was tacked on to the queens event, people could elect to simply shoot 3 days of Queens then 2 days of Bisley. Alternatively if fatigue was the only concern, you could delay the Bisley event by 1 day to give shooters a break between Queens series an...
