I travelled to Raglan for the QLD Match Rifle and Long Range Championships last weekend,had a good time and met up with old friends.I tried to make a small report plus the results,thought I was going well until the screen went blank,it is too much for me,perhaps a younger generation can manage it,un...
What I find interesting is that of three very top Australian FTR shooters commenting here,one is against,one is for and the other is for some of the time,with other options depending on the mound surface.I am working on it,used carpet on top of a rubber belting mat,on top of a thick wooden board at ...
