Barry, I guess I meant a convoy from all directions (hmm.... not really the right word was it). I saw Bill at Bendigo about 3 weeks ago - he didn't say anything about Canberra - he has a young family and doesn't seem to travel much to shoot. If you want to catch up with him you know what you'll have...

Good thinking Dave - especially important at 300. In fact if you can afford it, I think everyone should have a new centre at 300, to reduce the likelihood of patches interfering with gauging.

Matt, I've never weighed my 6.5 but I asked KHGS to make it legal for LG and I'm sure he did that. I use free recoil (i.e. only trigger finger and opposing thumb touching the rifle) and while my long-range results (how shall I put this?) - have some potential for improvement :lol: , my short-range a...

Tony,

What was the reason for the 30 minute break? I agree that 10 shot groups tell you much more than 5, but I'm wondering how much of the windage spread is due to a change in conditions before and after the break.

Ben,

Looks good - I might defer my plans for a 2nd rifle - was going to be a 6 Dasher, but this looks promising.

BTW congrats on your SA Queens performance - conserve that barrel!

Tony Z, I've been hearing a few people mentioning your notable bench-rest credentials recently. Along with Jeff Rogers, I'm sure you have much to offer by way of equipment and reloading advice. I'm puzzled as to why you both seem to be more interested in FS than FO, given the current uncertainty abo...

Looks like we just about "have us a convoy" \:D/ ! Chopper, Your idea about starting new shooters with a scoped rifle prompted me to get one organised for our range. On Saturday it got its first use by a young shooter whose been struggling with sling and peep sight. The look on his face at the end o...

...was very impressed with their 6.5 x 284s --- I might have to build one... You just stick with your .308 John - you do quite well enough with that! :lol: Seriously, it would be a pleasure to have you shooting in Open. If you do go with a 6.5 I'd highly recommend a Barnard action. I hope to see yo...

ACT Queens

Its just over a month away. I'm booked in and paid up, and looking forward to matching up a few names to faces. I notice that Alan Peake won the F-Open last year and he's been in winning form again in SA. Will be great if we get a good turnout \:D/. So who's still coming, and who else can we expect ...

I appreciate the humour but.... the slogan will not be about shooting people (or animals) :shock: ! We are trying to promote F-Class target (paper) shooting, not tactical and varmint :roll: ! So keep it politically correct thank you! BTW, if we get say 5 suitable ones, we'll run a poll to pick the w...
