Re: Victorian Queens Series - 2018

Well as always I am not on side with the "apparent" majority. Give me properly set up & maintained electronic targets anytime!!! Throughout 50 years of competition at all levels, PM's & Queens prizes ect., I have had more meetings spoilt for me by bad manual marking than I care to ...

Re: Which D/P action is best?

G'Day all, I've run the following actions, Hall S, Stolle Panda & Bat DS. Of those 3 I'd choose the Stolle it's an old action but slick as, then the BAT DS, if weight is an issue Stolle everytime. I agree with Mat on the Borden having a properly timed action from the start. The yanks are all ov...

Re: canting reticle to allow for spin drift

Some of the old timers might remember Brian Titcombe. Quality bloke who when I started gave me a tip when leveling up a zero target for fullbore or TR as we now know it. He said the bubble moves towards the sun, put your hand over it. With regard to permanent canting of the scope for spin drift wit...

Re: BEST SCOPE FOR F OPEN

John, all good if you want to stick to Open only...... pretty sure that a 308 FTR rifle at almost 2kg lighter than a Open rifle with full blown 200gr bullets will impart as much impulse (abuse) into a scope as most 7 SAUM’s...... I will leave it there..... let’s focus on the Open rifles as requeste...

Is there any reason why I can't shoot a tikka with the ejector plunger removed so that it does not throw the brass on extraction.
Thanks

No absolutely no reason at all.

Re: Looking for feedback

Think I like Alan's second answer the best. If it is the answer you want than it is the better one!!!! Just because an individual hasn't seen it does not mean that the technical facts are wrong. One can believe what one wants but it does not change the facts, does it matter? That is up to the indiv...

Re: Lee Collet Neck Die

I totally agree, Wall, so it really pisses me that except with brass neck turned to tight neck chambers, they give straighter brass than anything I've tried & less runout. You can all say what you like, but they just flat out work! I agree Lee make a lot of cheap stuff but this die isn't one of...

Re: NSW F-Class Association Match

I would think that (the 95+%" they would be better served to train for Australia??????? Keith, If Bisley style takes off here, they may well be training for Australia :wink: . It hasn't happened yet & I would lay odds that it won't, except for isolated matches such as this one. The main re...

Re: Lee Collet Neck Die

Scot & Wal86, I don't know what the problem is that you guys are having, but I and many others on this forum have been using Lee Collet dies for years. I use them in multiple calibers & will not use any other neck die for the calibers that they are available for, they are far better than str...

Re: NSW F-Class Association Match

This is Australia not Bisley or Canada or anywhere international. ......South Africa is less than 4 years away. Bisley practise will give the current F Class Open World Champion and others more experience prior to competing in SA in 2021. That is one reason, however a key driver for me is the impor...

Re: NSW F-Class Association Match

As a TR shooter I'm keen! Enjoy bisley style shooting, not enough of it shot I think! Good answer Rod, but I will agree to disagree with you. Australians tend to willingly give up their identity in lots of areas & I would prefer to see the first F-Class Association match follow an Australian fo...
