Great to see a longer range, longer shot string OPM being put on instead of the usual 10 shots at 3,5,600 With you there Rod,though the shorter range ones have their place historically and with some of the shorter ranges we have.Not long home from Stawell,where the Australian and Victorian Match Ri...

Re: Bisley style shooting

Cant speak for others, but this TR shooter is very keen :) Only by trying this for a while will we see the value (or otherwise). Providing of course that each shot is timed, which I understand it is.

Re: ULTRA-LONG RANGE CHALLENGE

I noticed that a few didn't shoot 1500. Is that because they ran out of elevation? The main reason was that some of the competitors were Match Rifle shooters having Australian Team selection training on Friday,some I know had to return home for work and couldn't stay for the whole time,I only know ...

Re: Australia vs New Zealand F-Open Teams Match

Graham,
It is welcome news to hear that Australia has a FTR team as well as the F Open team,you will enjoy shooting there.
Rather than go back in your hole,as you mentioned,I think you should be an official correspondent.

This could be a way of getting your situation/findings to the right people.. C...
