+ 3 on this. We have tried free recoil, it doesnt work.

I'm happy when my scopes move the inch without the .047 per nominal MOA. Considering the accuracy of my (our?) wind judgement, I don't see it matters a bit. If ot comes to that, I'm happy if the spotter disc isn't perforated precisely in the centre, or that the marker places the patch eccentric to ...

Teams matches - postal shoots etc

As a coach starting out since 2007, I have been looking for opportunities for MORE coaching experience without much success other than our local and disctrict meetings. This is maybe 3-4 times a year. I was just wondering do any clubs get involved much with coaching at all? One suggestion was for po...

Hey mate,

Now that you have shot at rimfire distance, try your group at 1000y and see how it goes :x :x :x

Is the drw to scale? If so, the forend look very short. The simple fix for balance is to extend the forend further fwd. My own FO stock is much longer at the front than a std stock, so the balance point is centered between the front and rear bags.

To answer the thread question: I prefer a solid mounting such as V block for the action. Dont undestand why it would be any different in height from any other bedding system. The bedding height is dictated by the location of the trigger blade under the stock, not much else has an impact on it.

The barrel clamp moves the centre of mass forward noticeably, but with the 7mm that's a good thing to keep the muzzle down. Alan Really? From my testing, I found that the rifle has to be balanced on the rests for it to shoot correctly. Some top shooters also say the same thing, to the point where i...

Same price in the US as a BAT. Titanium has its own positives and negatives, and will never be the silver bullet (any puns intended).

Re: Borescopes

The 90 degree adaptor is incredibly useful for inspecting heavy barrels without undue stress and strain.! It might be ok holding a featherweight up to inspect it looking straight down the bore, but you will get very sick of it, very quickly, with a typical target barrel weight. Get the deluxe kit w...

The Swing action was a huge improvement over the Omark, and would be considered quite competitive today! The SWING still exists today, it is called the RPA Quadlock. Look up discussions on this by RGC and others. Competitive actions, if you can ever get one. In regard to standardising the sport bei...

Re: Level playing field

If an affordable rifle was put together for around $1500 with sights, that may make it easier to get into the sport. It would be great to see all TR shooters using the same rifle (action + barrel) and ammo, that way it would be truly those that can conquer all conditions that we would see at the to...

It's easy to be critical -- in retrospect. Back in 1969 when EVERY target shooter in this country ( and others ) had to be re-equiped because the 303 was obsolete, the omark satisfactorily filled that huge gap. Sure, by today's standards it has many design faults but we are talking 42 years ago and...

It may seem that way: however my opinion on Omarks has never changed.
