Re: Electronic targets and new range designs

Thanks for the comments guys. I’m thinking partial mantlet removal, allowing for 4 fixed electronic targets and still keeping 3 old style target frames. Would be good not to have to lift the Hexta targets .

Electronic targets and new range designs

Hi , with the introduction of electronic targets of various designs, some of which are quite heavy, and no longer the need to have markers and therefore the requirement to have a mantlet, I wonder what new designs are being considered. It seems a bit rediculous to continue to use 100 year old target...

Re: throat angle

Two rifles, 4 x 308 barrels, all shooting berger 155.5s, 1 seating die on 1 setting used for all barrels, jumping anywhere from 20 to 60 thou. Can’t see any difference in accuracy.

Still a fair bit more variation than Berger 155.5s

Optimus HBC Projectiles

Hi guys, just been weighing some Optimus HBC Projectiles for the club rifle. Wondering what sort of variation people are getting.

I had a few at 150.84 to 150.98, then quite a few from 151.02 to 151.68, a couple each at 152, 153 and 154, then a batch 155.02 to 155.92.

Scales were fx320

Cheers
Danny

Trevor, 1” below the surface, that’s your problem. You’ve put the primer in the neck. Lol

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

I don’t think you are ever going to get a set of rules that will suit everyone. I think what George has suggested is reasonable, with maybe the exception of allowing magazines to be used. Weight 8kg, should cover most rifles. Drop the weight and someone will be excluded. Rifle scope, who cares. High...

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

Hi Trev, On the info received from the VRA, George is asking for comments by the end of January, however, contact details have not been provided. Yes, I know we can probably email the NRAA but a direct link etc would be handy.

Cheers

Re: NRAA Ammo Survey.

Trevor , the last thing we need is for the NRAA to increase membership by $25 to $30. Maybe, they should look at cost cutting or other ways of increasing income. Best way to increase income is to increase membership

Re: NRAA Elections for Director Positions - Nov 2nd

Hi Bob, so how much does it cost to hold 4 Meetings a year, given that Directors airfares etc are covered.

It seems to me that so many things can be dealt with via modern technology.

Re: How would a Prize Meeting go on grand final Day.

It’s hard enough getting shooters to attend a pm let alone on a grand final day. But, yes, some variety in ranges etc would be good. However, it’s not all about PMs. Membership begins at club level, we have to build up members, who then may go to PMs. Now a dangerous question. For those members that...

Maybe it’s time that you took less notice of bullet calculators and more of what works in real life.

Re: 155gr bullet choice for 1:13 twist

Berger 155.5 fullbore and a Lilja 1:13 won me the Vic Queens in F Standard. I agree with Wal86.
