Re: South African Open Championships 2019

Some people have been discussing the possibility of an Australian contingent going to SA in April 2019.

It will be invaluable as preparation for FCWC 2021.

I'm keen to see how many people are interested in forming FTR and FO teams.

Re: VRA Prize meeting

3 x 1000 at Bendigo is a real test of skill and patience. So is running in a new barrel. Steve, while you were at the OPM I was at your range practising my barrel cleaning skills. Fire 1 Clean 1, Repeat........ Enjoy the shoot, hopefully the conditions will be kinder tomorrow. Hope to see the result...

Re: FCWC - 2021

Any indication on Cartridge selection?


Anything posted here would be suspect and unreliable :wink:

I'm sure we wouldn't want to help our rivals beat us by giving all our secrets away.

Re: VRA - Skills and Development Day

Thanks really goes to the VRA for identifying and addressing the need across our membership. Due to the number of topics to be covered, I have produced a handout that everyone who attends gets. Currently at 10 pages, however additional pages are still to be added. I adopt a Keep It Simple Stupid (K....

Re: ACT Queens

Hey Tim,

A man with your skills should be able to do it easily with the 6mm.

I may even attend with a 308 to keep you honest.

Cheers.

Re: Rifle weighing scales.

I agree with Peter, the VRA has had certified scales for some years now. And from what i have seen, they are calibrated periodically too. Well done!

Re: The Future

What about enticing the SSAA to take advantage of our ranges and us their competitions by having a subsidised membership deal where we get 50% off yearly membership to SSAA and they get similar discount with us.

Maybe we would then see more SSAA dual members, and vice versa :idea:

Re: QRA Queens

Firstly thanks to the QRA for a well run event. And to the weather God thankyou for WARM/DRY/AWESOME days away from Victoria. Well done to the winners, as the conditions were tricky at times.

Re: North Shore District Rifle Association OPM

Great to see the 15 shot matches. And the 3 x 800m is a great idea.

If it fits in with my calendar, I hope to get up there too.

Cheers.

Re: WTB Berger 180gn Hybrid projectiles

My gun does not like VLDs Hey Peter/All, My experience last weekend is that the VLD's do work, but clearly not as tight a group as the Hybrids. A 60.6 (VLD) vs a 60.7 (Hybrid), however the groups were remarkedly different in size. Back during the Nationals, the Q-Store had 100 boxes of VLD's in sto...

Re: forget tuners - get these

A very good article Bruce. Well worth the read. Probably worth letting it get some legs first before jumping on board. So many chamber and power combinations that need to demonstrate safety and reliability. And can we store a loaded round for years safely? Time will tell. We could all be using them ...
