Re: George Wittorff hunter class

My observations tend to indicate that there are two types of " hunting " rifles --The light weight rifle around 3 to 4 kg and the " tactical" hunting rifle at 5.5 to 6.5 kg . The " tactical" being somewhat different in construction and price to the plain old hunting rif...

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

I really think that someone needs to clearly define what " Hunter " class is. I rather think an 8 kg rifle is not" Hunter" class but more in the" Target" rifle class. As far as " development " ( as mentioned by in the above post ) --how do you" Develop&qu...

Re: NRAA Ammo Survey.

BC will vary the trajectory noticably more than velocity variations, unless of course the velocity variation is rather large.
More noticable at long range than short. Easily proven by calculation.

So noticeable isn't it - if you want to see it.

Re: NRAA Ammo Survey.

Trev, I don't wish to be critical of the VRA as I know they are trying -- but-- $ 34 is about 65c per week. If I save one sighter per week I have saved more than that, and, it costs me double that amount to shoot every week. I get around the PM"s same as you and when I look around I don't see a...

Re: NRAA Ammo Survey.

Brad, What I mean by that is that there are numerous projectiles available that are NOT approved for use in FS and TR and I defy anybody to tell by simply looking at a loaded round if the projectile being used is in fact legal. Even when disassembled I doubt that a differentiation could be made betw...

Re: NRAA Ammo Survey.

Had the NRAA removed that projectile from the approved list, who do you think was going to enforce it? Rather naive to think that would happen. Simply shoot FO or F/TR --perfectly legal. Less people shooting PM's and Queens --just what the organization needs. The NRAA would have been way out of line...

Re: NRAA Ammo Survey.

In addition to the NRAA levee per projectile, the states also add their margin. So how much mark up are we actually paying per projectile? The more you shoot, the more you pay, while some pay nothing. Of course shooters will source their components wherever they can at the cheapest price, ( and they...

Re: NRAA Ammo Survey.

It's a bit late for all of this now. The flood gates for projectiles ( 308 ) have been almost fully opened and nobody is going to like partially shutting them. My suggestion to the NRAA would be to fully open the gates to any max. 156 grain projectile to be sourced by individuals whereever they can ...

Re: which would you recommend

If you are going to seriously shoot F Class and you cannot get something longer than a 26" barrel, then neither.

Re: New Barrel

Had a few barrels in my career and run every one in. Consider -- almost without exception the first shot thru a new barrel will produce copious amounts of copper --and it's not all from the newly cut throat. It is evident at the muzzle in streaks. As the number of shots increases the amount of coppe...

Re: VRA AGM motion

Many Years ago, when Williamstown was still being used, the VRA introduced this concept whereby all club champions shot off for the State title. It was fired Bisley style with two shooters per target. ( TR only as FC did not exist then ) If the motion gets up it might well be worth thinking about ag...
