Re: ring height for new scope?

...What height rings do I need, medium or high 30mm rings ... sss, Obviously, no-one can be sure without more information e.g. height and slope of scope "rail", barrel profile, length of lens shade etc. So if possible you should either get the rings on the understanding you can return them if the w...

Queens Day 2 results are on http://www.nswra.org.au/results/2005queens.html . Looks like you were right about the ugly weather Matt - when James Corbett gets a 45.1 things must be tough :shock: . Progessive scores of F-Class leaders are : F-Std John Hammond 334, Tom Lowndes 333. Ernie Mace 329 F-Ope...

Now they're cooking with gas. Thursday's results must have gone up same day. Close finishes in the McIntosh in both F-Std and F-Open. Noel Lewis pipped Tom Lowndes and Stephen Rigby pipped Peter Hayden. And by the look of the scores on Thursday, challenging weather :shock: ! Congrats to all =D> Alan

Jeff,

With SMKs, if you get for example a long base to ogive, does this normally correspond to a long boat-tail, or a long bearing surface, or a bit of both?

Michael, I agree that bearing surface variation is worth trying to keep to a minimum, but more as way of getting consistent BC than distance to the lands. Because bullet seaters work on some part of the ogive, not the base of the bullet. So for distance to the lands, the consistent dimension needs t...

Gidday Barry, They don't appear to be as speedy as some of the others in getting the results on the web. I believe this is where they will be : http://www.nswra.org.au/results/2005queens.html If we'd known, we could have asked Matt to phone them through each day. Alan :?

Sounds promising Lynn. The fact that there exists some which are okay means someone else is printing them, so I'll do as you say and contact SARA. Thanks.

John,

The ones we have did come from VRA. From what I've seen, all centres and other aiming marks are okay - its just the 800 aiming mark that has the glossy black which "dissolves" very easily.

Michael, RB,

Thanks for the responses. My main priority is to get some decent ones, so if anyone has got 800 champ aiming marks that are as good as the 500s then I'd appreciate some info on where to get them.

Championship 800 Aiming Marks

The ones we have don't like moisture. They stick together if not kept very dry when rolled up, and even light rain washes the "ink" off. Also the black is quite glossy which can make strikes difficult to see. Our 300 and 500 aiming marks are okay (same quality as standard aiming marks). Does anyone ...

ACT Queens Sunday Shoots - How Many Shots?

The flyer in the ATR says 10 shots for the 500 and 600 on the Sunday, which is a change from 15 shots in previous years - the E-mail address on their website bounced, so can anyone confirm or otherwise please?

=D> I'm with you all the way on that Bruce. We have nothing to gain from NRAA bashing. They're doing what they can with limited resources and a lot of voluntary time, and having to cope with a rapidly changing environment.
