Lynn, I just did some research in old ATR magazines. It appears that a decision was made by our 5 member board in early 2003 that Belmont would become the "home" of the NRAA. It appears there was no requirement for consultation with members. Interestingly there was a reasonable geographical spread o...

Lynn, I haven't thought a lot about the practicalities of moving the National Queens around, but I'm with you on the concept. I heard the decision re Brisbane was made mainly because the NRAA Council at that time was stacked with Queenslanders :mrgreen: ! I'm sure someone will set the record straigh...

Peter, Quite apart from the advantages of wind drift, F-Open shooters have several other available advantages over F-Std which help accuracy : - Heavier barrel - Lighter trigger - Heavier overall weight - Greater selection of projectiles So I presume your statement about the competitiveness of .223 ...

Tony, If by 100/100 you mean at both ranges of a 2 range shoot, it probably has happened, but I've never heard of it. I think with just single range possibles, it is rare enough. However with F-Std single range possibles of 60 are more common, and probably too numerous for such a register. If you we...

Matt, As an established member of those who haven't shot a possible (yet :mrgreen: ), I would go along with it. I think it should include all shoots run strictly according to the SSRs. This would give an added incentive to excel during saturday club shoots. I also think it would be a good way of get...

How about this then? In the Events forum, we create a topic for every Queen's shoot for the next 12 months (from the 2005 Queensland to the 2006 Nationals) which is named e.g. "Who Will Be at the 2006 National Queens?". People can post in these forums to announce well ahead (up to 12 months) of the ...

6.5 139gr Moly Scenars Wanted

I believe they are no longer being imported :cry: , and I don't have a tumbler or moly kit. Does anyone have any they don't want? I'll pay $46 per 100 plus postage for unopened boxes (that is the price SARA had them for).

Thanks Matt. And good on you for being gracious in defeat. I guess one of the good things about long range shooting is that changing weather adds that element of luck, and on any day, it gives the rest of us a chance of mixing it with the front-runners 8) . The numbers at Queens shoots are getting a...

Congrats to the winners at the National Queens. Can anyone who was there give us more information about equipment used, what the weather did etc. From the look of the scores, the weather was patchy? Or did some shooters change rifles :?: .

Peter, I was very impressed, or should I say astounded :lol: by the content on your website. Now I went a fair way in physics, but soon realised that your stuff is a few levels higher up! Do you have any contact with Louis Boyd (frequents the 1000yd forum on benchrest.com)? He's very much into optic...

Peter,

Is aerodynamic jump what occurs when there is wind from behind? I use a 6.5x284 and have noticed that in these conditions, I am more effected by elevation problems than the .308 shooters.

Simon, Sorry, I had to delete and rewrite the last post (had the wrong hat on). The main advantage of not needing to FL resize would be long brass life (although in your case the primer pockets are the limiting factor). As far as accuracy goes, IMHO FL sizing (particularly shoulder bumping) is more ...

Simon, Here's my opinion (but there will be others :lol: ). The only reasons you would need to FL resize are if you have difficulty extracting fired rounds (base may need sizing) or if you have difficulty chambering loaded rounds) shoulder may need bumping). If you have neither of these problems, th...

Its All Over

Bill Hallam held off a slow starting and fast finishing Matt Paroz, and John Oddy finally broke clear from Rodney Prayle. Check out the ozfclass.com results page or for comprehensive coverage, the

Click Here for National Queens Day 1. Looks like Bill Hallam and Rodney Prayle had possibles at 300. To get the 300 score, you need to subtract the other 3 scores from the daily agg (not sure why - it was the same last year).
