Thanks Alan,

That 6/7 kg .308 comparison is what I've been thinking of.

Cheers,
Denis.

Thanks Dave and Cameron. I have a .284 & .300wsm on the way. I'll be shooting the 180 hyb's and 230 hyb's so Im sure it will be a shock to the system. I certainly won't go in expecting my 6BR technique to work straight away.

Thanks again,
Denis.

Hi Dave, I'm currently shooting a 10kg 6BR and have a .284 switch barrel on the way. You said that you need to be careful in switching between the 6BR, 6.5x47 and .284sh. Does this mean that you change your rifle hold and technique between calibres or are you talking about mentally preparing yoursel...

I had an email from Rob this evening. He told me the next shipment will be early August and that I'll be getting mine out of this batch. The previous email said I was #9 on the list.

G'day Eco, It's easy to transition. Probably something that you have to be conciouse of with a co-axial rest is to make sure that your joystick hand and gripping fingers are supported well and very steady. My Caldwell Fire Control is very easy to very slightly jerk under recoil and I'm sure the Neo ...

I have a SEB Neo and its great! If I had to wait 6 months to get it then I would have got the Farely Coaxial front rest. Its expensive and well made like the Seb, but its available now from BRT. Have a look here and click on the picture of it to enlarge. http://www.benchrest.com.au/restsbags.htm#re...

Hi Dennis, I have been using a Seb Neo for about 12 months, I LOVE IT, it is fantastic to use, just get used to people asking for a coffee. I have nylon f class feet at the moment but will soon have some metal ones. Rest assured the wait will be worth it. Thanks Danny, Where did you get your F-clas...

SEB NEO Front Rest Discussion

Hi all, I'm waiting on a NEO F.R. I odered it early December and I'm told hopefully I'll have it by the end of July. I'm really keen for it but I won't be suprised if the wait drags out. I was originally told 4 months. One of the guys at North Arm R.C has been waiting over 12 months. Who uses one? a...

I agree that there are specific intended characteristics of a competetive F-class rifle that something like the DTA or TRG doesn't have and I prefer a rifle thats 100% designed and suited to F-class Open. That said, I don't think F-class fraternity should be afraid of someone trying to compete with ...

I think the beauty and key selling point of F-open is "CHOICE". Choice in bullet, powder, calibre and gun. It makes the sport less restrictive and less boring to individuals. I am far from competetive but it seems to me that in F-open, to be competetive you have to adhere to the rules as best you ca...

Noise testing has been a regular fact of life at Belmont for as long as they've had the wherewithal to do so, but so has noise mitigation. I suspect that as we become more interested in the more assertive calibres for FO, fly & 1000 yard bench, we'll be faced with a greater imperative to contai...

G'day Ben :wink: I've heard a lot of discussion about noise testing at Belmont lately. That and the fact that people have to write down their caliber when they sign in may be indicators of some government plan in the pipeline. It would be great for Gympie, but a real shame for everyone around Brisba...
