I then gave u my rifle to shoot and you wacked it up the 55 x and shot a good score !! When I saw you turn up the power, I was just amazed h...

Re: High power scopes and NQ mirage!!

I have found there are two distinct groups of shooters. Those who see mirage and those who don't. Those who do see mirage will be the ones, who at shoots will be talking about how they couldn't see the target at 55-60x like some were using, so wound back to 15-20X. They often seem to be the people w...

Re: FCWC - 2021

Yes, if they hear about the team all using 28 Noslers they will all want one. I thought you said the team will be shooting 6mm wssm and those new 120gn Copperheads at 4000fps that have greater BC than a .338 edge ? :shock: :shock: And dont tell anyone about the new secret FTR projectile we are usin...

Anything posted here would be suspect and unreliable :wink:

I'm sure we wouldn't want to help our rivals beat us by giving all our secrets away.

Re: Varying powder charge summer/winter?

Going from what I have seen at work heating large bits of steel on earthmoving gear with pin and bearing bores, I would agree that Tims theory has some merit when it comes to barrel heat from firing (but not ambient temps). The last time I heated a fairly large casting with a bearing bore in it was ...

Re: Ken from Copper head

September last year Ken sent me some trial packs of the135 & 140's from his new dies to try in my 6.5 x 55 Rogue. Both shot as well as I could on the days that I shot them. As I did not do any load development for the owing to limited numbers, I shot the 140's with the load I normally use behin...

Re: Ken from Copper head

I cant help with the 140s, but I am using his 130s in my new 6.5x47 and am very happy with them.
I am certainly keen to try his new 184gn 7mm pills when they come out.

Re: NSW Queens

It is 8.00am and the lucky buggers who get to shoot first will have flags which aren’t moving. They are all stretched out to the max. The rain is horizontal as we get ready to start. I’m told it will be 2x10 shot strings instead of 15 shots as the TR shooters took 4 hrs to do a 15 shot stage yesterd...

Re: How would a Prize Meeting go on grand final Day.

What's 'footy'? If it's rugby league, rugby union, AFL or football, I'll be on the range. Yep, what Tim said. I would much rather shoot. I just hope that if someone is holding a 3 day OPM, they do something other than the standard 2+10 at 500,500,600. It would be great if they would try some pairs ...
