Re: Grains or grams?

I’m more than happy with using grains as the measure, as you say the A&Ds are accurate to the kernel! Which is probably more accurate than needed my question was more for the benefit of someone who may think there’s more accuracy in grams to 3 decimal points rather than grains to 2 decimal poin...

Re: NATIONAL MATCH RIFLE & LONG RANGE F CLASS CHAMPIONSHIPS

I notice it's state teams for FO but teams for FTR. What's the go? Hope to get some composite teams to get the event started? I don't think the flyer specifies team composition.

Re: QRA Queens

http://shooting.hexsystems.com.au/competition/143 Thanks. I've seen the results there and on the QRA website. What I was curious about is why the last two years aren't in the NRAA system and for 2016 only the Duncan, Queens and Grand aggregates. In particular I wonderd if this meant the Qld Queens ...

QRA Queens

Has Queensland seceded from the NRAA results system? Nothing there for this year's Queens or 2017.

Now that the list is so long why bother to have it at all? What's gained by excluding others of the same weight?

Re: Enfield / 303 Advice

One of my SMLEs has the parker hale sight and I prefer it to the central. Can't comment on whether that's a fair price or not. It might be worth contacting Jeff Pannan, who runs the Melbourne gun show, to see what he's got.

Re: Enfield / 303 Advice

Thanks for the tip, is there any way of readily identifying the heavy barreled variants. They're cut down and recrowned Long Tom barrels and have an H stamped on the knox - or is it nocks, seen both spellings - form. Not particularly rare as far as I know. I'd be wary of the tunnel foresight on the...

Re: Max peak elevation of trajectory?

Litz's book gives that one a G7 of .418 and without taking the atmospheric data into consideration his software says around 25 feet at 500 yards. Happy shooting.

Re: Max peak elevation of trajectory?

Not entirely sure you've given us enough information Graham but it looks to me that if you're hitting the target at a mile with 67 minutes of elevation top of the trajectory will be around 1050 yards at a height around 38 feet. I did this calculation assuming a .30 cal 210gr sierra. Happy to be corr...

Thanks. A shame you can't opt out like you could with the hard copy. I did subscribe to that but haven't bothered with it since it went online.

Just stirring the pot Cliff. I am well aware of how your initial post reads, in closing it asked, "Where else in Australia.......". I simply gave the obvious answer.

See you in Coona.
