Re: Berger 224 80g vld

Fair point Dazza, i suppose all that i can add from here is that it did hold together at 900 metre's.

Re: Berger 224 80g vld

Hi Dazza,

I have used that bullet in an 8t 223 and they shot very well. Not sure about the BC and stability side of things?

Re: Benchmark 8208 / 155.5 / 308 FTR

Hi James,
I have used the 155.5 and 8208 quite a bit and have had some amazing results.
My load was quite hot 45.7g in lapua small primer brass, BR4 primers 25th jump for around 3080 fps.
However, for reasons i have moved away from this powder and now use 2206H and would not go back to 8208.

Re: F-Class World Championships 2017

Hi John, Love the stats you are putting up, I suppose some mean a lot and some don't mean so much. Either way it is interesting. As you know winning one of these puts you on high that is hard to describe and also makes you think about future teams and if you want to be a part of them! In my opinion ...

Re: F-Class World Championships 2017

Hi Shane, The Swaro's worked better than I ever imagined. Seriously they were that good! I will discuss the bennifits with you on my return, and am not sure if I want to give them back. The quality of the optics combined with the binocular eye piece gave an exceptional depth of field and definitely ...

Re: Pommie gday

Hello Pommie,
The Cairns rifle club is located at Wangetti beach down rifle range Rd, so not all that far from the Daintree.
We shoot nearly every Sunday from 8 am and we would love to see you there.
This weekend is 300 meters shot on electronic targets.

Re: Ron Betts

Very sad to hear of Ron's passing.
I had the pleasure of shooting on the same board as Ron at quite a few Queen's.
He was a great ambassador for F class and a true gentleman.

RIP
