Re: QRA Queen’s

Any thoughts for or against the way that there was no check scorer and shot results were not recorded on the blackboard only the shooters overall score? (Some shooters were very reluctant to put their scores up) I didn't like having to check my phone to see how shooters were going and think it took...

Re: MAB Omark barrel adapter

only a smith who doesnt know enough will insist on an adaptor. a "good" smith can do the job without one. Well spoken by someone who has no idea about metallurgy. Any GOOD gunsmith would never take on such a job, the end result would be very, very dangerous!!!!! I have seen the result of ...

Re: Tuning Basics 101

[quote="bruce moulds"]looking for this velocity window is easy with a labradar. if you don't have one, a ladder test might be the quickest way. this has the bonus that every barrel has a slightly different velocity window. in some ways doing it without knowing velocity is a good thing, as ...

Re: Tuning Basics 101

Well Haha, going back to pre teams banter .... QLD , THE BEST STATE ! :lol: Depending on the range. Look for an upcoming post in this series soon. I’m guessing this has to do with wind angular torque or wind shear at a Qld range ? That will be a good thread to discuss, as it’s a very tuff range for...

Re: Tuning Basics 101

I won't attempt to add any technical advice to this thread because my tuning methods are pretty basic, namely ladder testing and occasional experimentation with seating depth. What I would like to comment on however is how things have changed during my time in F-Open. When I started shooting at Que...

Re: Tuning Basics 101

It may well not be “fairy dust” but to me without a degree, it kinda seems like it! I just think I’m getting a handle on something and then read Williada’s writing and instantly feel like I’m in kindy again :shock: In any discipline or sport for that matter we keep coming back to fundamentals execu...

Re: Tuning Basics 101

I totally hear u about the basics Brett. If the platform aint right ( and just quietly I've seen a few platforms that I wouldn't touch with a barge pole ) then the best it's gonna get is some good shooting in the easy conditions - when the operator has the time to hold thier mouth just right to get...

Re: Tuning Basics 101

We have been playing the F class game for a couple of years so far from experienced but I come from an engineering background and we have a few medals and OPM wins between us so we must be doing something right even if its not reading the wind lol.

Re: Tuning Basics 101

Tuners aren't part of tuning basics 101 (IMO) Tuning basics 101 Decide what methodology you are going to use ladder, OCW, Cortina method etc. Decide what distance you are going to tune at and why. This distance needs to work with the methodology...ladders at 100yrds are unlikely to work Know what y...

Re: 80.5gn FB Berger seating depth???

I was always told to start my testing jammed. This is true when fireforming Seating depth is always barrel related. I start with .015" jam, develop the most accurate powder charge with the bullet jammed then fine tune the seating depth. Doing it this way there is only one direction to tune sea...

Re: Concentricity gauge

I remember a guy over here with too much money and not enough clues and he was using a Hornady one ( I think it was red ) that referenced the case off the rim. Not very clever because that would rely on the case rim being properly concentric to the case wall body ! I told him that was dumb but he j...

Re: 6BR-AI loads wanted

Hi I am getting away from the original topic but Gyro my last encounter with a 3 groove Lija was enough to not only steer me away from that brand of a barrel and also button barrels. The cost of purchasing, posting and getting a fclass barrel home on your rifle in Australia can be around $1200 AUD....
