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.

Re: The Future

I think there is enough space to accommodate a range of disciplines with due thought, organisation and agreement because if shooters in general do not occupy that space the land will be turned over to other community uses and that is the bottom line. We've certainly got the space and I, for one, ha...

Re: George Wittorff hunter class

...Magazines are not needed... Trev, I'm interested to know what your reasoning is? Do magazines cause problems? I can see problems with NOT allowing them. Quite clearly magazines DON'T cause problems. Their use is necessary in field rifle and service rifle, the rifles are cleared as the shooter re...

Looks spot on to me. He did ask what the levy per bullet was and gave figures based on 1 or 2 cents.

Re: NRAA Ammo Survey.

I gave up and did not submit my survey. Took me three tries before I could bear to continue to the finish and even then didn't answer quite a few questions. As Phil points out, it's TR and F Std centric and much of it doesn't make sense in the context of other disciplines. As to what possible beari...

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.

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 ...

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.
