Re: Helmar Cleaning products

I've used the carbon remover and it seems to work fine. However, I did notice it also dissolves copper as the patches were coming out with a green tinge. I've only got the carbon remover so can't check but I think I saw somewhere that the carbon and copper products are the same stuff, just a higher...

One of the things I like about our sport is that men and women compete equally. I don't think we need a separate class for them. I DO think we need decent toilet facilities near the firing point.

Wasn't that Portnoy's Complaint David? Admittedly quite a few years since I last read Catcher in the Rye so I could be wrong in that.

Re: Australians at the TR World Champs/Palma

Final results aren't posted yet but Steve Negus dropped three on the final range and led by four. He'd be a happy man.

Re: Submerging barrels in cleaning solutions

The instructions on Boretech C4, which I use and like, state that it contains a SHORT TERM (my emphasis) rust preventative. Noting Keith's comments above it would be helpful to know where the boundary between short and long terms lies - not to me though, I store them with Hoppes No9.

By and large the hole behaves the same as the stuff that used to be there would have.

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.
