Re: The Future

Bob, I was not referring to your post. I was just making a point in reference to the poor outlook that this thread and others like it in general make us feel about the future of the game. I said it myself, I've resigned to the fact that our game won't recover and I'll enjoy it while it lasts. I just...

Re: The Future

Its true that the shooting sports membership may not be what it was a long time ago but that doesn't mean that its all doom and gloom. Safety course numbers are still high, the number of firearms licences are high and still on the increase and there are far more gunshops around now than there were 9...

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: I've been a fan o...

Re: The Future

PRS is the new kid on the block. It's exciting, has atmosphere and has some very enthusiastic people driving the new movement. One day, when and if PRS builds up to the numbers that participate in F-class Nationally, they may find themselves with the same problems we have. I dont think we should be ...

Re: The Future

The VRA is setting up a task force looking at membership and how to improve it. The task force is to be made up of the general membership meaning you. Please do something to help our sport, put your hand up and nominate for a position by contacting the office. This is a great idea. All assoc's shou...

Re: my idea of this award night, I don’t think it should be the same evening as the presentations. Maybe the first night of the Queens. I agree that no one likes standing around and that’s why I think it should be a catered dinner. People can be eating a drinking while it’s sll going on. Make a nig...

Re: The Future

There is not just one thing that needs to be fixed or changed to get sport flourishing again. Bums on seats at club level anyway we can, offer evolved classes, encourage PM attendance, get the right people in the right board and committee seats, etc.. There's so much that needs to be done in so many...

Re: The Future

It’ll be hard to save what we have under the current S& T, but harder to build something new. I’d say realistically impossible. Where’s all the money and man power going to come from.

Re: The Future

Aside from the well recognised issues of the associations not doing enough, the members not doing enough and the old guard that are in the right positions not accepting evolution, change and growth, I believe we have another newer major problem..... There are a few things that people don't agree wit...

Mine is a 7-300WSM


I realise its a 7, but I think the short fat case design is great like a oversized BR. Doesn't seem to hurt the SAUM over those dodgy 280ai's either hey GS :P


Oh and the WSM handles pressure super well

Re: Ladder test- what went wrong?

I think that's a real dooooozie of a barrel Tim. What's happening is that with the same powder charge, it'd be spraying shots everywhere, but by increasing the charge in your ladder test, you've compensated perfectly for it's short comings. I'd send it back and insist on a refund. Bahahahaha. As a s...

Re: 7mm SAUM Rechamber/Barrel Life

What ever happened with the guys that were experimenting with U/S cleaning hard carbon out of barrels. I think boys up Mackay way had a long U/S cleaner going????

Re: QRA Queens

Haha, in FSA, 1st, 2nd and 3rd were 11,12 and 13 points dropped respectively in both the National Queens and the QRA. With very similar X counts too. Fun fact. Bearing in mind Nationals was a 9 match comp, one being a 15 shotter. Special mention of Tony Berry's 1st day back after a couple of years o...

Re: For Sale - Lyman Gen 6 Electronic powder dispenser

Just saw that Cleavers has these for $350, so I've dropped the price to $300.
