You are starting to come to terms with all that is required for accuracy, and you do need to bother because the local scene is just as competitive as the international scene.

Barry, how do you know this? Have you shot internationally in a recognised discipline?

I think you will find that a hard sheet will give you elevation problems from bounce during recoil.

Good job mate. There are plenty of rifles around like this that perform well enough.

The savage rifle is good for the price, based on the pricing of rifles in Australia. The AU$2500 is questionable, as they are a LOT cheaper in the US. There are few excuses other than price gouging for the price difference. One of the best FTR shooters in the USA uses a factory std savage as supplie...

ALan, you say this like it is a new idea. ICFRA has permitted this, people need to catch up with what others are already doing. It wasn't an option for F-Open while we used the Open target Rod. Once we all adopted the ICFRA target, it was a fairly obvious move and it happened quite quickly e.g. we ...

Should be diamontes and sequins at minimum. Fox fur cheek rest, fluffy dice bolt knob, mirror ball hanging from trigger guard.

...Having you guys out on your own on a couple of targets at the previous Queens was not the way to go... Maybe the same rationale could extend to a trial of ftr... Yes, in fact I'd take that a step further and say that mixed squadding with all classes including TR is probably the best way to impro...

WA generally scores the shots as they are called: 5, V and X for all disciplines. There are less mistakes and confusion for everyone. I don't really understand the need to fit with TR, the ICFRA target and standardised scoring has done this for us.

Thanks Larry, I actually got the info from Eric, he did say that they won't be ready for a while. Fun times ahead. I like the proposed new .375 cal pill myself. It would make the markers job "interesting" if a few of them went slam bam into the x ring at a grand! Would be interesting as they are la...

I just read the article in the link. Might pay us to go through this process and see what we find. If I remember, will post the results here. If people are wondering how the MOA is worked out, it is done like this: 100 yards = 300 feet 300 feet multiplied by 12 = 3600 3600 x 2 (to give diameter) x p...

True enough, so you mean the additional 0.47" - makes sense now. An inch is close enough.............
